What about on redirects?

Errr, redirects from where to where? You mean like logins?
I meant from posting back to a topic, for example.

Ah, I follow you now. Actually, I'm not sure that it doesn't already do that; I think it might. Let's take a look.

Edit: No such luck, I'll see what I can do.

Edit #2: This might have done the trick, but pr'aps not.

Edit #3: It actually should have worked; the problem may be variable scope.

Edit #4: PHP global ftw?
My "what about redirects" post was when I tested it, and it didn't appear to Wink

Gotcha. At any rate, success!
Hurrah! Good show ol' chap.

I approve of the image macro. Smile I suppose we'd better get back to discussing header images, right?
I suppose you're right. I like the adjustments you made to the brick-background positioning and the calculator, but I did like having the minifigure as well. Perhaps if I work on raytracing him it would look better? Would you be so kind as to upload the updated xcf you worked on?

Done. I overwrote yours, so it should be the same link. Smile
I'm attempting to install the vanilla Unix variant of POV-ray using Macports, so I don't have to deal with the obnoxious PowerPC issues (POV-ray is one of those programs that was actually quite fond of Altivec).

Sounds good. I assume that taking a screenshot ingame is not an option, either due to resolution or a lack of a minifig-capable rendering engine in your dev version?

Well, once I write the plugin for turning LDraw models into (this is next, I promise, I just have to finish up the .dif loader) a scene graph, I should be able to take a screenshot in any OSG-based program. But it still wouldn't have the image quality of raytracing, unless it happened to be an OSG-based raytracer.

Gotcha, a good point. Hmm, that makes me wonder if it would be worth it to rebuild that calc model in LDraw and then PovRay it.

That would be pretty awesome looking if you did. Very Happy

On the .dif loading front, I am currently stepping through my code to read the material list from file, where I seem to be running into a few problems reading the correct list-size from the stream.

All the data up to that point seems to be loading correctly (or at least, I am reading the correct number of bytes, and not losing my place in the stream).
That's great to hear, keep up the good work. I have a 3 or 4 day weekend, which I'll be spending catching up on a massive amount of work, but I'll see if I can get a few dozen minutes to do that at some point.

I say Kerm's, it looks good and stays to the Calculator Programmer site thing...
I've updated the LDR model file linked a few posts back, to a single-file (not multi-part) model, loaded it into L3P with the following settings:

to produce http://sfgp.cemetech.net/freebuild/header_fbdude.pov
which I ran through povray with the following command line:

Code:
[thomas@Bombadil] LDRAW $ povray +Q9 +A0.1 +AM2 +UA +R8 +H600 +W800 header_fbdude.pov

10 minutes later I had this:


Note that I used the standard low-poly library instead of the LGEO library, in order to more accurately capture the in-game model.

[edit]

and voila:


Thoughts?
nice
