Re: Interresting By Engine
Hello,

No problem I'm working on adding AZERTY support right now

Gui:

1) What specific element do you need?

2) yes, you can:
-in the Gui Editor edit a Gui Style, and manipulate 'shadow' 0..255, and 'back color' first component (its alpha transparency), save the Gui Style to a file and the set it to your custom window
-or in the code create a GuiStyle object, edit it's parameters and assign it to a window (Window::style)

3) after loading the gui objects, find your GViewport object and set it's render (GViewport::render) variable to point to a custom rendering function, in that function you can just render objects, for example

Code:
void MainRender()
{
switch(Renderer())
{
.. render here
}
}
void ViewportRender(GViewport &viewport)
{
  Renderer(MainRender);
}

// after loading/creating GViewport object
gui_viewport.render=ViewportRender; // assign rendering function


As for the game it's most possible that it just has a lot fewer number of shaders (it was developed a year ago, with less graphics options), however I'll look at it, thanks for the info.

Re: Interresting By Engine
Hi,

another question,

Now, I have 3 Viewports,1 For the Background, and 2 on GUI, but the "CamHandle" is apply on all Viewport.
I like, "CamHandle" on Background Viewport, and for my 2 GUIs Viewport just my animation (rotation) it's a planete...

Scuse me there questions, I come from the world of IRRLICHT.

Re: Interresting By Engine
Hi,

CamHandle operates on current camera ('Cam'),
so first of all you would have to have few cameras (Camera camera_a,camera_bwink and :
-update them manually ( for example camera_a.yaw += Tm.d; )
-or activate the desired camera (camera_a.set(); which will copy itself to 'Cam') and then call CamHandle (which will operate on 'Cam'), store results to 'camera_a' (camera_a=Cam)

Let me know if you need more info and I'll make a tutorial about multiple cameras.

I think I've finished working on the AZERTY keyboard support, I'll be updating engine soon.

As for the Gui modifications:
please check Gui header file, these are elements which you could play with

Code:
struct GUI // Graphical User Interface
{
   U32     kb_lit     ; // keyboard focus highlight color
   TextDS tds_button  , // gui button       text draw settings
          tds_cmenu   , // gui context menu text draw settings
          tds_desc    , // gui description  text draw settings
          tds_list    , // gui list         text draw settings
          tds_textline, // gui text line    text draw settings
          tds_text    ; // gui text         text draw settings

   Gfx gfx_button  [3], // button   image
       gfx_checkbox[2], // checkbox image
       gfx_slider     , // slider   image
       gfx_progress   , // progress image
       gfx_window     , // window   image
       gfx_shadow     , // shadow   image
       gfx_minimize   , // minimize button image
       gfx_maximize   , // maximize button image
       gfx_close      ; // close    button image

   GuiStyle style_window, // default Window GuiStyle
            style_region; // default Region GuiStyle

also check Buttons

Code:
struct Button : GuiObj // Gui Button
{
   Char   text[32]    ; // button text
   Byte   mode        , // BUTTON_MODE                , default=BUTTON_DEFAULT
          draw_mode   , // BUTTON_DRAW_MODE           , default=BDM_BUTTON
          shadow      , // shadow intensity 0..255    , default=0
   U32    color       ; // color                      , default=0xFFFFFFFF
   Flt    text_align  , // text aligning              , default=0.0
          shadow_width; // shadow width               , default=0.06
   Gfx   *gfx         ; // image                      , default=&Gui.gfx_button[0]

Re: Interresting By Engine
Hi,
How are you applying the texture?
Most commonly textures should be applied on models in Mesh Editor tool, they're processed there automatically.
You can check the Mesh Editor documentation for that.
Let me know if you'll need more assistance with this.

Re: Interresting By Engine
It seems that you're using cube uv mapping, you should either:
-import a model with correct mapping from an external graphics program
-or in code use Mshb::create2(Ball &,.. instead of Mshb::create(Ball &,..) (create2 creates a ball in a different way with different mapping)

Re: Interresting By Engine
Hi,

instead of "mesh.create(1).B(0).create(Ball(1),VTX_TX0|VTX_NRM|VTX_TNG);"
you can do "mesh.create(1).B(0).create2(Ball(1),VTX_TX0|VTX_NRM|VTX_TNG);"
