  1. Hm, can anybody with an AMD card confirm this? I'm afraid I don't have an AMD-based GPU around to try this.
  2. Is DR 3.0.0 or DR 3.1.0 doing the same thing? If yes, it might be a renderer issue introduced during the rewrite.
  3. I do what I can, rest assured. And with all due respect, I don't have to give any reasons for not solving issues to anyone. As for the issue at hand, I've already started looking into it before you asked, so chances are high that I can fix it in time for the next release. It seems it's a problem with the entity colour wrongly affecting the editor preview pass. And one more thing, setting the priority on the bugtracker usually doesn't get anybody anywhere, this is not influencing my time nor my motivation. A higher priority might be justified in this case, but often people just want to get "their" reports prioritized and set "Major" or "Block" severity on almost everything. In the end I pick the problems I'm interested in and I can find enough energy for. edit: Don't get me wrong, I do like coding on DR because mission authors are using it, so for the most part I do it for them. But I do get a bit touchy when I feel that people are trying to "make use" of me and try to assign work to me.
  4. Renderer support for materials with multiple interaction stages (in this example two diffusemaps combined with one bump and one specular):
  5. Better support for "set X on Y" spawnargs to set values on attached entities:
  6. Model Selector now lists entityDefs using the selected model. You can double-click to create the entityDef instead of a regular func_static:
  7. DarkRadiant 3.2.0 is ready for download. What's new: Feature: Show entityDefs related to selected models in Model Chooser Feature: Support for rendering blend lights Feature: Implement sorting of Interaction Stages Feature: Recognise type of "set x on y" spawnargs Feature: OBJ files: loader supports usemtl keywords directly referencing material names (without .mtl file) Fixed: Material editor: additional preview object in textures/glass/ materials Fixed: Every attempt to load a texture will trigger a SIGSEGV signal caught: 11 Improvement: Update to wxWidgets 3.2.0 Windows and Mac Downloads are available on Github: https://github.com/codereader/DarkRadiant/releases/tag/3.2.0 and of course linked from the website https://www.darkradiant.net Thanks to all the awesome people who keep using DarkRadiant to create Fan Missions - they are the main reason for me to keep going.

  8. Coming back to this discussion from issue #5739: I'm not so sure about putting the entity classes in the tree as children to the object, but what about this mockup below? Is having a tab with the "Related Entity Classes" too well hidden to be useful or would this be ok?
  9. I don't insist on doing that myself, so feel free I'm currently upgrading to wxWidgets 3.2 on Windows, and I had to fix a few things in terms of implicit wxIcon>wxBitmap>wxBitmapBundle conversions.
  10. We got a bug report here which seems to happen using wxWidgets 3.2. @jonri Is this something that looks like problems you remember running into? https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=6080
  11. Does this help? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/wer/collecting-user-mode-dumps It says if you create that registry key it will automatically save a dump file to somwhere below your AppData folder.
  12. You need to sign up here: https://bugs.thedarkmod.com Once you have a login, you can create a bug using "Report Issue": https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/bug_report_page.php
  13. Can you please record a crash dump from the moment it stops working? It's the only way I can find out what's going wrong. (Crashdump instructions)
  14. My bad, I've been thinking about Selection Sets. Of course, I'm using groups all the time... Yes, I know about that feature request, to be able to select within groups without disbanding them - very useful, but more involved than it might appear at first glance.
  15. This is exactly the use case I had in mind that got me to open this thread and ask. I recently moved back the undo queue to select an item I had deleted earlier, selected it, copied it to the clipboard, then redid all the steps and pasted the item into the map. A move like this is no longer possible when the redo stack is cleared by selecting the item. But then again, I'm used to selections being undoable from Blender, where this is quite a time saver. It's very easy to mis-select a vertex when moving fast, and being able to remove those wrongly selected items by hitting Ctrl-Z is really nice. For this one feature I'd be interested whether anyone is using it at all - are many people using selection groups in their maps? I found it less useful myself, and the workflow is clunky, having to think of a name for the group before saving. - edit: scratch that, I've been thinking about selection sets here.
  16. I'd like to get some feedback about this old feature request, before I start working on it. What do mission authors think, would it be beneficial to have the selection status be included in the undo/redo operations? Like, you select two items, and by hitting Undo the most recently selected item is de-selected again (hitting undo again will proceed to de-select the first one). Thoughts?
  17. DarkRadiant 3.1.0 is ready for download. What's new: The Texture Tool got its Free Scale operator now, allowing you to fit the texture with the mouse instead of having to type in the percentages. A lot of work went into the Declaration handling (EntityDef, Skins, Materials, Particles, etc.), which is now much more robust and more conformant to how the game is doing things (at least until TDM 2.10). The Material Editor got a plethora of issues resolved Improved the Model Export dialog and options For more things that have changed or fixed, see the list below. Windows and Mac Downloads are available on Github: https://github.com/codereader/DarkRadiant/releases/tag/3.1.0 and of course linked from the website https://www.darkradiant.net Thanks go out to all who helped testing this release!

  18. The official wxWidgets 3.2.0 has been released just recently, in July, so I assume this was too late for Ubuntu 22.04. But I'm glad that it is out at last (it took seemingly forever), now we can finally move on and remove some of the weird #if workarounds. After removing the problems and crashes, of course.
  19. Here's the pre-release build 3.1.0pre2 After this pre-release phase I'm going to consider doing this differently, like pushing out the releases more regularly, skipping the "beta" phase. It's a lot of work putting the pre-releases together, and I'm somewhat tired of it.

  20. Yes, I came across the same page. I'll try to do that some time and will try to keep it in mind before the next release.
  21. Hey tobi, with tarball, are you referring to the sourcecode.tar.gz in the Github releases page? If so, this file is automatically created when I click "publish" on a new release in Github, I cannot influence its contents. I'm not even sure I placed .gitattributes myself in the repo - I believe my local Git client is already configured to commit Unix line-endings only, but will check out CRLF-style locally. So I could live with removing the .gitattributes file from the repo, I don't need it personally. I can also offer to fix the count_loot.py file or any other file you report to me as faulty. I would have guessed that the .gitattributes file should do exactly that, but maybe it's only working in the check-out direction, not when committing files. @OrbWeaverWhat's your take on that, do you prefer that .gitattributes file staying under version control?
  22. I didn't work on fog or blend lights at all, so yes, it's still an open topic. The corresponding issues are still open on the tracker (I see one of them was opened by you): https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=4706 https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=2350 Maybe during the next round of renderer changes.
  23. There's no shame in not finding that grabber widget to drag the divider - I find myself searching for that on regular occasions.
