Leadwerks Game Engine 4.6 Beta Available

Josh

231 views

A new build is available on the beta branch. This changes the model picking system to use a different raycasting implementation under-the-hood. Sphere picking (using a radius) will also now correctly return the first hit triangle. You will also notice much faster loading times when you load up a detailed model in the editor!

Additional parameters have been added to the Joint::SetSpring command:

void Joint::SetSpring(const float spring, const float relaxation = 1.0f, const float damper = 0.1f)

The classes for P2P networking, lobbies, and voice communication have been added but are not yet documented and may still change.

Incidentally, the extra spring parameters were the only thing that were missing to build your own vehicles. I will be implementing this with the standard Leadwerks API.

What about the issue with going full-screen on some setups? Has this been looked at or fixed yet?

Not yet, I plan to include it though.

Sigh. I've stopped all development using Leadwerks (had stopped it some time back) because this one particular issue is a show stopper as far as I am concerned.

Why? It's going to be fixed soon. I think I have it worked out now.

Love it.  I hope there will be a clear example somewhere of how to set it up and what to adjust for certain effects (less or more bounce, tighter or looser steering, etc.).

I patched the Windows build to handle the fullscreen problem, should work now.

You can also filter out specific users in order to have team-only conversations. By default your own ID is filtered out from receiving voice messages that you send, but you can enable it for testing like this:

Voice::SetFilter(Steamworks::GetUserID(), true);

Then you will hear your own voice coming back to you as you speak,
