I never said that I don't want to, but as u already know I don't have enough free time to contribute to project on regular basis and I don't think because of that I'm useful to the project. For example I can make a site for project with any services you want, that not so timeconsuming and I have enough technical resources for that, but actively working on codebase and commit everyday I can't.

Which image hosting you can browse?

Wait what. You're not supposed to use high poly meshes on the horizon engine.

Please reread the topic title. ;)

They were still using the same engine, just with enhancements, last time I checked. Nobody said they removed the vertex limit.

That took about.. ugh.. three lines of code to change from 1999 to whatever you want. I didn't think it's that major thing to create a post about :)

It's not really that big a deal. The model is just broken up into 64-polygon sub-models. Many of the models you see in Might and Magic 6-8 are really multiple models.

You kidding? That's, like, the best thing I've seen here so far! You should post code updates as well, not just images.

You can follow the SVN if you're interested.

Aside, I'm not a programmer, does anyone here know how I can change the code to skip the intro cinematic? I hate having to try to get lucky and not have it crash on me at some point during the video.

Edit: Ok, looking at the terminal, when I try to skip the video, before crashing, it shows several textures as not found

Edit: Nevermind. Anyone else who has this problem, after compiling and move the new .exe into your might and magic 7 folder, copy the data folder and move it to your mm7 directory as well

Thank you. I'm wondering, where in the code are all the parameters defined?

Edit: I sure hope this doesn't make you have to do a lot of recoding, but pay attention to what happens to the sprites when you use delete/page down to look up or down.

In WinMain, which currently moved to Driver.cpp.

I think it is known bug, but if it bother you as I remember correctly this helps:

Code: Select all

  if (byte_4D8410[572] && *(_BYTE *)(&pGame->uSomeFlags) & 0x80 || uCurrentlyLoadedLevelType == 1)
    angle = 3.1415926535897931 * ((double)_this->sRotationX / 1024);
  else
-   angle = -3.1415926535897931 * ((double)_this->sRotationX / 1024);
+   angle = 3.1415926535897931 * ((double)_this->sRotationX / 1024);
 
  _this->fRotationXSine = sin(angle);
  _this->fRotationXCosine = cos(angle);

But it is wrong way for fixing this, just a fast dirty hack.

Probably you do something wrong...
I really don't what is this axis X, and why a rotation around it may ever be reversed, but when the checked condition has no effect, the checking is just redundant.
