Re: New Music Candidate

Oh yeah, I totally agree on the FFVII vibe. From the first high notes I kept expecting Sephiroth to come by my office and slaughter everyone... While a nice piece in itself, I can't see a situation in Pioneer where it would be suitable. The overall slow beat associated with the imperfect chords are ...

Re: A simple (sort of) description of Pioneers rendering.

Question/clarification : about the const vs uniform distinction, uniform means data that will be the same for all vertices but will not be constant across frames, right ?

Re: Compiling Pioneer for Raspberry Pi (ARM)

Oh hey, I should get my Pi out my drawer and try this! I'm using plain old Debian on it instead of Raspbian (Raspbian uses armv5+float because of the Pi1 whereas the Pi2 can run the armhf port of Debian).

Re: Wish to work on System generation, and more...

As a (perhaps emeritus?) member of the "core team" [0], I wish you wouldn't say "we". You're actually using it way more often than the people that actually do the work, and I'm fairly sure that, not knowing any better I'd assume you were a prominent member, if newly arrived, of the development team....

Re: no music linux build

Which makes me think SDL2 doesn't detect pulseaudio. padsp creates /dev/dsp and emulates it via pulseaudio, so SDL would just use the OSS backend.

Re: gameplay idea (FPS)

Well, Pioneer is open source, so I don't think any of us would turn away somebody who wants to implement it and has the knowledge, time, intention and willpower to do it, but don't count on that happening. On the other hand, there isn't anything like that in the scope of the game for good reason. I...

Re: LuaSerializer - saves some non-printable chars

You can't expect us to merge a huge piece of code touching areas as critical as the serializisation as an enormous blob of diff without a proper review. And a proper review is next to impossible if the pull request isn't properly formatted. Which means you have two viables options: learn git, or pos...

Re: LuaSerializer - saves some non-printable chars

I know I'm a bit late to the party here, but why not start a bit small, and just convert *only* the Lua serializer to JSON and leave the rest in the horrible format it is in now ? This would make it a bit easier to differentiate bugs related to the generic JSON handling from the ones specifics to th...
