I forgot to mention this...

The Java Web Start example is very nice!
I like the bloom effect very much.

Thank you! The used level doesn't do the bloom effect justice. It can look much nicer than it does in this all-blue-setting.
I'm currently working on a "simple" client-server-version of this example.

I like the little spider creature;).

That reminds me, I need to finish my npc ai.

I wonder, is there any way to create an effect that looks 'vaguely' similar to this...



It's just a fascination. It isn't something that is vital.

A lot of these effects seem to be possible with billboarded textures,
and textured planes.

I think a small particle system would give the rough effect.

very nice demo ;) is there a kind of path finding in it or does that creature simply follow some predefined paths ?

the client-server one will be a multi-player one right ? sounds great :D

btw, pressing b seem to have no effect on this old laptop. it has an integrated  SiS 760 graphics chipset. mine is at repair so i dont know if it is ok on it

Code: [Select]

Yes, it'll be a kind of simple multiplayer game (one player model, one weapon, one level). I'm writing it basically to write myself some client-/server-code for another, bigger game i'm planning to write (which will reuse a lot of the Paradroidz art resources, i.e. the same models and such).

About the SIS-chipset: It very likely that it doesn't support the extensions needed. The console should print out a message in that case when you press 'b'.

It's predefined.

Oh, I should have told you about that too:).

The performance drops quite significantly with it enabled.
I am running Ubuntu Edgy Linux.

Still, I'm going to use it:)

Fantastic little monster too;)

Yes, because it eats fillrate for breakfast. You can tweak the effect/performance with the settings provided by that processor, but on low end graphics hardware (like Intel onboard chips), you should be happy that it works at all. It requires an extension that some older chips/drivers don't offer.

Not mine...just downloaded from planetquake...if i would have done it, it would look like that only if it should actually became the  model of a human.
