Great progress.

Is something still going to be done about the gravity?
Because it looks like she is gliding effortlessly rather than jumping and being heavy because of gravity.

Titak, I remember I've perfectly synchronized jump timing and distance with TR4 engine side by side, so it should match almost perfectly. Or do you mean jump curve? Yes, it's a bit different (original TR one being a bit sharper), but it's more related to difference between native TR physics and bullet physics.

I would say something similar about her general movement, it seems a bit as if though she's "attached" to the camera, or the camera is glued to her in the back on a stick or something, to her torso specifically. I understand it's probably the "point of relation" (the torso) for the camera, and it might be corrected/improved in future? In the games you feel the weight of Lara's character on the surfaces because the camera seems independent of her object just enough as to make it all look realistic, although it's still very much following her, except it appears less "glued". This is a subtle thing to perceive, so it's a bit difficult to explain. And I think this effect was somehow more prominent with earlier versions of the engine judging by the videos, it seems better now, but still a tiniest bit off compared with the games

^ I believe that's because the camera is "fixed", so to speak. It's just stuck in a point behind Lara, following her position, but it doesn't swing around in regard to her animation collisions, like it does in the actual TR engine.
But I'm sure it's only a matter of time before that will be changed.

Anyway, got really excited with the announcement of working triggers! Keep up the great work guys, it has really payed off so far!

Yes, in fact we already have an algorhitm which works just like classic TR camera - it was generously donated by kurlyak (unfortunately, there is no more news from him lately... ). Only thing to do is to adapt it from his prototype engine into OpenTomb.

Hi, Lwmte do you mean auto follow camera from his prototipe engine?, if yes, there is a sourcecode for all his engine on this side: http://speedy.sh/zXKUF/MyTR-Engine.7z

Yes, that's what I'm talking about, I also have this archive somewhere... I tried to integrate Kurlyak's camera into OpenTomb, but my skills aren't enough for this! Hopefully, someone will return to this task later.

Now for other good news: I have finally implemented audiotrack player! For now, it's only Ogg file support - it will be used to replace soundtracks from TR1/TR2 CD audio.


As for TR3 and above - there should be less problems, since OpenAL supports ADPCM natively, so we don't need any external codecs and libraries. Most problematic one is, of course, TR3, which keeps all of its audio inside CDAUDIO.WAD file - we have to make a parser for it.

Default Little update

I add time info to scripts, use frame_time in lua to get current frame time; Now we can create timers (see tt() function as a timer example in sys_scripts.lua) +LEVEL2_trigger.lua script was simplified, now adding triggers to maps is easy (see one as an example) + uploaded to SF in separate folder =)
