spark 2 is great :) also the last stable release is great (and compiles better).

There is a demo using Irrlicht, you just have to use the Irrlicht renderers. Download the latest sdk (SPARK1.5), or better, the latest SVN (SPARK 2), the demo is quite straightforward.

Has spark been updated to work with irrlicht 1.8?

The only part of SPARK that uses Irrlicht are SPK::IRR::Renderers, and they work with the latest SVN version of Irrlicht. There is still on or two graphic bugs related to transparency, but at least for one it is an Irrlicht bug.

Thanks last time i chequed they changed something in the transparency rendering that fixed the transparency bug but also broke the IRR renderer.

Also on an unrelated mather would it be possible to use shaders on the particle rendered with spark in irrlicht?

yes. You can still set material with irrlicht and then render triangles with spark. I think that will work There is no shader unbinding unless irrlicht setup another material.

Trying to download spark2 from https://svn.code.sf.net/p/sparkengine/code/spark2-irr_shader_pipeline/

Created a folded, asked Tortoise to import the files, but then Sourceforge asks for login credentials.

Anyone know what the login is?

You shouldn't need login for just reading. What's your exact command?

I really find Tortoise cryptic to use, so I used DownloadThemAll in Chrome. But it asks for login.

(Edit) With Tortoise, I created a new folder, then right clicked, import... but get an error saying couldn't find type data on "https://svn.code.sf.net/p/sparkengine/code/spark2-irr_shader_pipeline/"

It should be "Checkout" not "import". Really look some video on youtube about tortoise, if you don't do branching or mergin using tortoise is really easy. (and anyway SourceForge credentials can be accessed from your sourceforge profile ;) ) take the time you need to learn basics of SVN and try to get as much as possible of GIT, you'll need it as software developer (even if you work alone)

cpp Code: Select all
svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/sparkengine/code/trunk sparkengine-code


you can also download a snapshot thanks to SF web interface:

REDDemon and cutealien said it ;)

BTW, I'm currently switching to git so I can abandon sourceforge (finally!).

Thanks for the advice REDDemon, will follow up on that. I had downloaded a snapshot before but there was a function that wasn't linking from a dll that was included, and had the function, so hope this time it will work!
