Bug #5959 is still happening to me:

Oh man. Can you share that map with me, and does it happen every time?

ah_church.7z

Doesn't happen right away, I have to move around in the 3d view and it gets worse and worse.

So far so good, no more corruption in 3d view.

One thing that's missing is wireframe/shaded outline of selected item in 3d view when in Render mode

Yes, I'm aware of that. It might not make it into the first 3.0.0 release, I'm afraid.

New version 3.0.0pre8 is available in the first post. Fixed the misaligned entity box, and patch vertices can be snapped again.

I found that I can maximise the 3D view, set the resolution to a ridiculous value my display can't deal with, it will say "out of range", but during that time I can win+up to maximise, take a screenshot, and revert the resolution.  Tactic not just for Radiant.

Utility I use:-

I think this might be better than expecting Radiant to be an all-out rendering solution.  Seems like a neverending rabbithole to me.  Just my opinion.

Is it possible to increase the render resolution of the renderview viewport? Or maybe apply anti aliasing?

Not so sure how much work AA would be to implement, but you can dock off the camera window and move/resize it for your needs. Does this help?

I use split pane view, so the render window is small.
Just seems to be lots of aliasing going on, assuming the internal render resolution is the same as the size of the window in pixels.
 

but honestly, if it's not something as simple as just changing some variables, don't worry about it man. You got lots of stuff on your plate already.

The modern way to do AA is (like the game itself does) using an FBO. Basically you render the scene at a higher resolution then scale it down to fit the window. At least that's the modern, simple way — games typically offer many more advanced settings like FXAA, temporal AA etc, but these would be overkill for just an editor.

It's not a massive amount of work to implement, but it's not just changing some settings either. If we were to implement it, we should allow the render resolution to be controlled in both directions: higher resolution to produce an AA effect, and lower resolution to improve performance on slower GPUs.

I'll probably be going to release 3.0.0 in the next few days, unless someone has noticed anything that might stop that train. Thanks a lot for testing the new release, folks, this is invaluable and makes DR better for everybody.

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      I'm starting to think we need another mapping contest.

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
