And this is the relit one that's been over onviewtopic.php?f=5&t=1230

As far as I know (and from my actual experience) you can achieve the same exact effect with alpha'd geometry as with glass.

Awesome news. I have been lurking pretty silently for a long time.
Any news on porting in new models from Blender et al? Or is there a modding link of some sort you might could point to?

Update: I managed to hunt down the exact version and revision that can save maps that will still load in v2.0. The text above has been edited to reflect this: v1.3.1 (Galactic Edition Patch as of )

Wait... wait. Are you saying... that Red Eclipse... was at long last, really, actually, fully, undoubtedly, seriously ported to the Tesseract engine?
Oh my god. Oh my god! Oh my god

I hope that the increased resource demands doesn't make a huge effect on how many people can play the game. I like games that can run on potatoes, it allows more people to play the game. Graphics are great and all, but that doesn't mean a thing if the person who is interested in the game, doesn't even have the machine to play the game. Having to pay for better parts is just like having to pay for the game, which makes the "free" title irrelevant. I hope you keep that in mind.

LONG LIVE DEVELOPERS !! LONG LIVE RED ECLIPSE !! I'm so happy with this, really great news. Earlier I was thinking that porting to Tess might take a few years! Imagine how surprised I was when I discovered that it is already in such working state!

If you are using SDL version 2.0.6 sound will be disabled due to a bug in SDL's mixer, there's an error message in the log and it should appear in the console at game startup.
Maps have not been converted to Tesseract yet, so lighting will be quite messed up as I assume is the case with these skyboxes.

"Wet" doesn't look like that when I load it up, so something is wrong on your end there I think. The "smudge" is the new residual (burn/bleed/shock/etc) decals being applied to the player models, the texture for it just sucks because I made it.

Install Arch.https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AM ... ght_driver
You have to compile your kernel with some extra flags if support for SI and CIK cards is not included in the default kernel release.

UPDATE: Added information for the "mapdesc" variable.
MAPDESC. This is a new map variable that should be set alongside "maptitle" and "mapauthor". It provides a short description of the map which is shown in menus, and should only be about 1 to 2 sentences long.

Error is now the first map to be ported to RE 2.0 and is now available in master by updating it through normal means (updater script works). More map ports are incoming and can be found in viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1230
For those interested in following the map development or in contributing to it, there is an issue with current information on map port status at https://github.com/red-eclipse/maps/issues/48

The #1 question that I simply have to ask; Will maps that use skybox illumination benefit from bounce lighting? One of the coolest features in Tesseract is that sky lights can have pre-baked global illumination, and I've been dying to see this in Red Eclipse 2.0 as well. Which maps support this so far?
09 Nov 2017 13:24
As far as i know, global illumination is rendered on the fly, instead of being baked.
And skylight doesn't really work like it should be (casting from the sky instead of being dependant on the sunlight's position like it is now. Look at Ghost 1.5 vs 2.0 for a propper comparison), but that's another story.
09 Nov 2017 16:23
and when I asked on IRC devs say: "Skylight works, like old one - from all directions" .... blah, thats not true... skylight uses sun position
I know it, thanks for clarify ;p
09 Nov 2017 20:19
You can do a sunlight 1 1 1, sunlightpitch 90 to make the skylight look like the old behavior (casts light in all directions) as a workaround for the way it is now.
Unless it gets independent from the sunlight in the future, that is.
Anyway, @mrmister, about the performance problems we could have, most (if not all) official maps are running pretty good as it is, on my machine (gtx 650 ti, phenom II x4 965, mid-range ish :p ), even without optimized versions.
Unless you Spawn a good chunk of bots (20+), then things start to get dirty .
This release is still far from done, but so far, so good ^^.

I know, I am super late with this comment, but hey...
Sure, there is a long road to go, but it is cool to see how the community works together to make this possible! Thumbs up for the mappers that work on all these ports and also on the first original RE2.0 maps, and an extra "yaaay" to acerspyro for helping quin with the game menus.
