EDGE 2.0.4 Final Released!!

Postby Coraline » Mon Jun 06, 2016 4:25 pm

Ok guys: first drop of 3DGE 2.1.0 TEST1. I am not going to put this release on blast since there are still issues (see below).

If possible, use your current EDGE2.cfg since resolution swapping in-game is broken.

New things:

* SDL2 support (input, video, controllers, networking)
* OPL music synth. You can now remove the 8MBGMPAT folder and skip using Timidity altogether. If OPL is not selected, just set it as the active music device and restart the map. Also can select OPL3 mode.
* DDF math and engine math has been refactored and sped up.
* Better glBSP building.
* Better interpolation handling.
* Much smaller EXE under VS, smaller zip package since we no longer need to include GUS patches.

Test2 will have:
* grAb chunk recognized for PNG, so it will use those offsets if defined. Just leave offsets out of Images.ddf if you are using those (defined in SLADE).
* PAK file handling.
* PK3 archive handling.

Broken things:
* Screen melting (either turn it OFF or swap to a different one in Screen Options). For some reason Visual Studio broke that where GCC would not.
* PAK/PK3/GRP: able to load in cache and read internal directory contents but not scan for lumps yet.
* resolution handling
* Other oddities (shift+X works in the console, but not all characters translate properly, like Tilde, but we dont use it anyway). Also, console blinking for input came back (haven't seen it working for years)!

Also, pull the console down and type:
Spriteflip 0

You will quickly see why. :S

Edit:
It was not derived from the most recent codebase, so this is going to be pulled for now.

Have fun, and hope you can see how hard we are working for our users!! I would not yet recommend it being used for everyday playing, unless manual resolution defining is not a problem for you. Everything has been improved from 2.0.4 aside from that.

Do not forget to report bugs! This is critical since we want the first official release of 2.1.0 as bug free as possible!

I'm looking forward to the next release, and thanks for all of the hard work that you and the team are doing with 3DGE!

3DGE 2.1.0 Test1 Released!!

Postby Coraline » Mon Jun 13, 2016 4:20 pm

Ok guys: first drop of 3DGE 2.1.0 TEST1. I am not going to put this release on blast since there are still issues (see below).

If possible, generate a new edge2.cfg and edit your resolution inside of the file, as a lot has changed that will require a clean config.

New things:

* SDL2 support (input, video, controllers, networking)
* OPL music synth. You can now remove the 8MBGMPAT folder and skip using Timidity altogether. If OPL is not selected, just set it as the active music device and restart the map. Also can select OPL3 mode.
* grAb chunk recognized for PNG, so it will use those offsets if defined. Just leave offsets out of Images.ddf if you are using those (defined in SLADE).
* PAK file handling.
* DDF math and engine math has been refactored and sped up.
* Better glBSP building.
* Better interpolation handling.
* Much smaller EXE under VS, smaller zip package since we no longer need to include GUS patches.
* Tons of serious optimizations.

Test2 will have:
* PK3 archive handling.

Broken things:
* resolution handling
* Other oddities (shift+X works in the console, but not all characters translate properly, like Tilde, but we dont use it anyway).
* r_Spriteflip

I've got it running, although only after cheating and putting the dlls. in manually. Installing the msvc2015 you linked to didn't get the current build going, but it did get that first alpha release functioning, so I'm doing something wrong with the updates, either that, or dl'ing the ms dlls manually at the beginning threw the ms installer off.

Both versions of 2.1.0 played through doom2 level1 without issue.

I managed to load up 2.0.4 on a higher-end laptop (Win10) and goodness gracious - the new specs and functionality are top-notch! Playing at max FPS with Interpolation and VSync on is an amazing experience!!! So far, I havent caught any bugs as of yet on that other laptop, as I'm back to using my own low-end machine on 2.0.2 still. I heard great news on that Hexen-styled ACS coding and I'm very excited to get busy on that version when it drops. I've been DEF'ing nonstop writing new code from scratch for monsters and pushing the capabilities to the limits.

Glad it is working out for you!! Improving this engine the way we want will raise system requirements a little, but not by a mile or anything =)

Runsaber: I packed a mod you had made (Damned) and Sandstorm's Doom Reloaded into 2.1.0 test1 (in the /mods folder), check it out if you'd like!

Nice, and thank you very much for the updates! When I ran it at the maximum, 3DGE was pushing power that I had no idea of it possessing!

By the way, you may want to update that very soon.... DAMNED V.09B drops TODAY!!

vcruntime140.dll
msvcp140.dll
api-ms-win-crt-heap-l1-1-0.dll
api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll

I hope you'll understand the sequence of events on this, because at first, adding the above individual dlls to the main folder didn't work.
I got the insider 2.1.0 alpha and couldn't get it functioning, just the load screen with the node building. I would search for the dlls listed in the error messages 1 by 1, which only got me to the main menu (new game, options, etc.). Then the crash would come back with a kernel error (faultv000000.00000 etc). About that same time you did the beta release with a link to ms for a runtime update. Installing the runtime update got the private 2.1.0 alpha working, but not the public release. On a guess, I dragged all the dlls from the private alpha2.1.0 to the public beta, and then they both started working, so I'm not even exactly sure what those individual dlls did, if anything. Just for giggles, windows 8 was upgraded to windows 8.1 in the middle of all this.
