I use your new HUD system in the piloting portion of the game, Marvin. I'm quite glad you added that in the last release
Ooups. Should have read this thread before the other one. Cool, that you're using the HUD. Do you use the current SVN code or version 0.8.0? I have improved the HUD very much since 0.8.0. Many Widgets have been added, theming support, etc...
I did not use ExtRenderLoop or Xith3DEnvironment. I have written my own custom Rendering loop which is integrated with my custom Network data transfer layer.
Well, Xith3DEnvironment integrates perfectly into any environment working without it. It just saves a lot of code lines. (Ext)RenderLoop can be extended and just handles the render loop part for you (and much more). Your custom network code can then be easily set on top of it.
The game will be free forever. I do sell an expansion pack with the game to make some revenue. If you guys sign up, tell me your membernames and I will comp you the expansion pack... you have certainly helped me out.
Great. I'll do that next week.
It may be a while before I get a Linux client release out. I use linux for all of the online servers, but i don't have a desktop linux currently.
Hmm... Making a Windows only version is just something more that creating a platform independent app in Java. I guess you have an exe file, that calls the Java Virtual Machine to actually run the game. Just offer a start shell skript to run the game. Should be quite simple. If you told me, which class is to be started, I could write you such a shell skript.
Anyway, great meeting you guys and I hope to be more involved in the forums from now on.
Do you know our new board on xith.org
? We're currently trying to move to this board.
