  1. congrats, yea, joints are very interesting, some time ago, with blitz3d+jv-ode i did some interesting things... some of them i try to re-do in leadwerks: cars, and some transporting bels, forklift etc. guess i upload that some where... utility_cars.zip
  2. congrats it is just two motorized hinges? or some vehicle feature? haven't had time to play with leadwerks new features...

    Shoot Simulator

    Yes, that's the point. And, here, money do not reach aceptable levels. I mean, yes third world but not the worst country mine, but our army has few resources and this kind of equipment is a must at first training stages. I and my friend did the development with our money, now waiting for burocracy to get some bucks

    Shoot Simulator

    Well, finally, a job done! This is the press note of the military news youtube channel: On July 26, the "Comandos" day here in my country (Uruguay, I know no one knows what or where it is, so from where I am, but is fine was te official inauguration of a Shoot Simulator I been working on. (Attached a cut, with the part in which the simulator appear, simply a flash ) I made it with the Professional Edition of Leadwerks as a standalone app. on Ubuntu 16.04 The systems uses some not traditional Game/Software hardware, made by me and a couple of people like me, who works in the metalurgical industry. We receive real guns, insert on them sensors and actuators to simulate the real behavior of them. An infrared laser on it, is detected by a couple of special cameras wichs only sees the ir dots of the guns, then with some math, I translate the IR camera coords space to Leadwerks 3D world projected and seen for us. Turn on a laser of one gun, read the coord seen by the cameras (if any) and repeat for each gun is made by a main microcontroller that is in comunication with the microcontrollers on each camera. The main micronontroller also reads the gun´s sensors to know when a shoot is done and if it is ok to simulate a shoot or not, based on it the gun was reloaded etc.. State changes and camera coordinates are transimted to de PC and Leadwerks do the rest Attached some pictures, some commented, with relevant and not so relevant things Juan simuladorDeTiro.mp4
  5. Hi Alien, I'm also somewhat lost.. going back, nice to hear about you.
  6. Yes, so excited to see it almost finished. Guess next month will be installed and working... And perhaps I'll see some money
  7. Not yet, but, if the project continues, it should be a next step or something to take into consideration. A 360 degrees detection system should be possible, but, more complex and expensive
  8. He he, me too! This video is of a couple of years when we build the demonstration prototype. test4.mp4
  9. It's more hardware than software, leadwerks part is to have something to shoot :). Guns have infrared lasers, a camera system detects where the gun is in the screen, then with some maths to translate corrds to leadwerks, a camera pick, and that's it. Simply put. Electronics simulate the gun behavior, and as you will see, I'm not an expert RECORTAR_20190410_105041.mp4 RECORTAR_20190410_104628.mp4
  10. drives were mounted but as ro, did a mount -o remount rw / then nano .xsessionrc delete the "shutdown..." line and voila... all is working again thank you very much
  11. well, now I have another problem, my bad i placed a shutdown line after gedit, to test if the systems shotsdown after gedit, and found that the system start and shutdown (no gedit) is there a way of intercept startup and open a terminal so I can delete the .xsession file? thanks
  12. well, if i place a .xsessionrc file with: then ubuntu starts, exec gedit and gedit open the pj01.sh file located in the above directory but if, instead of gedit i place ./pj01.sh then LE app do not start
  13. Thanks, I'll try it as soon as I get home.
  14. the thing now is how or from where I execute this script, because if i launch it from .config/autostart it start the leadwerks app, but do not shutdown the system my idea was that turning on the PC the app autostart and when quitting it, the system shutdown Is there other way to autostart an app?
