(Probably) stupid question about the maps
« on: October 18, 2010, 12:42:09 pm »
Hello,

maybe anyone could answer this question: I want to test some things in the new 2.4-dev and have many problems which could not be the case because anyone else would write "I have this, too", because they are essentially for the game.

I have some problems regardung the calculation of distances and points on the geoscape but they are not reproducable (it seems so). They occur many times on my PC but if I make a save and provide this to another guy, the problem seems to not exist. Also, if a reload my game the problem is gone away, but it will happen at any other timeframe later.

Is it possible, that I forgot something to build?

I explain, what I have done:

- Checkout from git
- Do some changes in the cl_input.c (for example)
- Compile & Link (build) the ufo.exe as well as all other targets which are build using "all"
- Start the new .exe => got problems

Has someone an explanation for that? I can only believe, that I got something wrong.

Best regards

PS: I mean for example this log entries:

Here the game keeps up on geoscape, I can reproduce this all of the time.

Sorry for self-reply but I just want to attach of the refetch for map-get command, which I tried to perform because of the errors described above.

Now I tried to build the maps using 'make maps'. It took a very long time but finally results in an error (see attached) in a_hangar.map.

Could someone tell me, what I can do to make it work? Or provide the complete map bsp's somewhere?

Best regards

This can probably be fixed by increasing the -quant n parameter you use when compiling. Try at least 3 and then go up if that doesn't work. Lower values lead to better lighting, but we've recently reduced the -quant default (I think) and some maps are causing the compilation to cause this error. Some more info on ufo2map parameters here.

Thank you very much, it keeps on compiling now with -quant 4. Sorry, that I don't read the page until end. I have to read the wiki more precisely.
