  1. Hello again.
    Thanks for the commit. I changed the lines as you noted. But now I see this error:

    <Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/home/jimm/.config/blender/2.82/scripts/addons/io_export_ase-2.py", line 1001, in execute
        bpy.ops.object.select_all( action = 'DESELECT' )
      File "/usr/share/blender/scripts/modules/bpy/ops.py", line 201, in __call__
        ret = op_call(self.idname_py(), None, kw)
    RuntimeError: Operator bpy.ops.object.select_all.poll() failed, context is incorrect>

    I can see by you board activity that you're busy, and I'm just trying to learn how to export from Blender into DarkRadiant right now, so this isn't really of the greatest importance. I don't want to impact your schedule too much.

      I just tested and I can reproduce the error if I try to export from Edit mode rather than Object mode, so I have high hopes that this will solve the problem.

      This is arguably still a bug in the script though, since it should handle the situation gracefully either by changing modes or by showing a user-friendly error message indicating the problem, rather than a meaningless Python stacktrace.

      You shouldn't need any external packages installed, no. The only dependencies for the script are Blender and its in-built Python.

      Looking more closely at the error message, I wonder if we might be barking up the wrong tree with Blender and Python versions, and this might perhaps be related to the current configuration of the Blender project/GUI. When you do the export, are you in Object or Edit mode? Does it help if you switch modes before running the exporter?

      If this doesn't make a difference, would you perhaps be able to record a desktop video of the problem, starting with creating a simple object in Blender and then trying to export it? Perhaps this will reveal if something is wrong in your project which might break the script.

      I tried downloading the Blender 2.82 tarball directly from blender.org and the exporter still works fine on my system, so I guess there must be something different about how the Mint builds are set up.

      If you download a tarball from blender.org instead of using the version from the repository, can you use the exporter then?

      I'm afraid I have no idea about that one. Is your Blender or Python installation customised or updated in some unusual way? I am on Blender 2.91 and I don't see any such error, so it can't be a simple matter of needing to update the script to match the latest Blender (unless your Blender is actually a very new development version which for some reason is misidentified as 2.81).

  5. Greetings and salutations.

    I have a question for you, if you don't mind too much.
    I tried to use your script, io_export_ase.py for Blender 2.82 on Linux. I got an error on export in line 957 "in exexcute start = time.clock ()
    AttributeError: module 'time' has no attribute 'clock'"

    I'm not a programmer or scripter, but I'm good at following directions. What could be the issue and what can fix this? And if that's too much for your schedule right now, could you help with some pointers?

    Thanks.

      Sadly, banning things is the only way politicians can think of responding to a crisis. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. And the only hammer politicians have is the legal ban-hammer.

  10. I'd like to make an Ambients database that lists all the ambient assets currently available in TDM, for mapping purposes. I would like to ask whether it would be all right to use some public sound storage and playback site (e.g. SoundCloud, maybe ?) to upload short samples of these ambients ? As previews for the database overview. Feedback on this idea needed !

    1. OrbWeaver

      OrbWeaver

      If you have web development skills, I think a searchable asset database for custom TDM assets would be very valuable. A lot of work to implement though.

  12. Worked out how to get the DR documentation online using GitLab Pages. It's pretty incomplete at the moment, but thanks to GitLab CI, every push automatically updates the website. http://orbweaver.gitlab.io/DarkRadiant/

      The information was probably "out there" but scattered around various forum threads, Wiki tutorials etc. The aim with an official user guide is to bring all that information together into a single place, structured logically and (eventually) covering ALL features of the application.

      It's not a static blog, it's a GitLab Pages site which serves the same HTML/AsciiDoc manual that I'm currently including in the DarkRadiant installation. TDM Wiki is an important editing resource but I don't think it's the right tool for an application user guide (which should be tracked in Git with the source code).

      There's no vendor lock-in with Vulkan (unlike Apple's proprietary Metal); it's a cross-platform standard maintained by Khronos and supported on most (all?) modern GPUs. It's close to the hardware because that's how modern hardware-accelerated programming works. High-level OpenGL functionality is becoming deprecated or abandoned because it's too inflexible for many use-cases and just becomes a driver maintenance burden.

  14. Why is tax charged on a used item that's being sold as refurbished? Isn't that double-dipping? It reminds me of MS and the way they wanted to force every Xbox user to go online so that they and game publishers could extort money out of people when they resell games.

  15. There's been an addendum to a contract that says I can't spend time messing with DR and TDM until RoW release on another project, as "it's distracting me". So... Thanks for all the fun and games, but it's important to keep this as I need it on my CV. (fku pariah, you grass).

      They've even admitted that the bill doesn't actually give any new powers to counter-terror spies anyway. It's about making it easier for local police to trawl for minor offences.

      I'd never heard of the social media meaning of "ghosting" before. I assumed the new definition was the usage from the Riddick movies (where it means "killing people").

      But "ghosting" isn't a new word. It was used in the days of analogue television to refer to certain kinds of double-picture interference.

      Cooperative multiplayer games are fine. It's just the competitive ones that are the problem. Either you get let down by random team-mates, or you're the one letting them down and you get abuse.
