Giles+My3d, ready for a 1st test drive?

as usual, WASD navigation, alt+f4 to quit, no collision so feel free to fly around and check the level.

2 things I must add:

1. I'm very very impressed by Giles' ambient lighting. It's one of the most realistic ones I've seen, even in GI pro apps.
2. My3d from giles works better since Giles produces a single lightmap file whereas from max this level would have produced hunreds of lightmaps, making it a heavier and slower file. My3d from giles speeds up things, and the lightmaps are very decent.

have fun, as usual let me know whatcha guys think. :wink:

whoa! 1st one to reply :wink:

Anybody else who downloaded it getting this or any other error?

thnx for reporting Macarraum, I'll look into it.

Forgot to say:
The app is windows only, and the dll has got Chips' hack for AA in DX. It's forced to work at 4x; so perhaps hardware specs may be an issue as well.

I'll post an opengl exe as well but it won't look as pretty (no AA)

could not load builtin font usually means one or more instance(s) irrlicht app / d3d / open gl app etc are already running.

oh yeah forgot to say: i would never turn on antialiasing on in your app, that sucks. the user can set antialiasing in the driver settings of his graphic card. at least i dont like games which force me to use certain antialiasing settings, but its only a suggestion.

maybe you could make some sort of an .INI file loader where the user can set the antialiasing level

wow, 7 fps on a 9600? that's really weird.

I'm getting 130 fps on a 5900 ultra and some more on the 6800 gt. your ATI should be around the 100 fps (minimum).

ok, and here's the gl version (exe):
http://www.danielpatton.com/afecelis/Giles/gl_giles.exe

I's hard for me to admitt it (being the opengl fan I am), but it looks ugly compared to dx!!! (the jaggies makes it look almost like software rendered!!!) and performance went down to 80 fps.

plz test the gl version to see how it goes :D

Yeap,
I placed all the options for the maximum of graphic quality, and I disabled the option of Application-controlled.

SOTM is dead... :o

So I decided to drop it. Instead, I created a new section on the screenshots page, where I now want to add shots of projects using Irrlicht, together with short descriptions.
