Time flies, doesn't it?

As follow-up to the discussion on Github Issue 180 it's probably time to push out some test versions even though they are still under development -> Public Library folder. The main part is Library.oxp, the other ones will need it.

You'll need the current trunk version or nightly (from Feb 27, 2016, build 5cf14a1).

Check it out as long as it's hot.

I totally dig the orchestral, event-driven, in-flight music. I don't think I can play Oolite anymore without it...

Impressive animation demo, amigo! I'm a bit wary of event-driven music (in ED, I had it all disabled), but I'll give it some time.

That version of BGS is lacking the hyperspace-exit cloud, yes?

I've collected 64 tracks (all under CC-by, CC-by-sa or CC-by-nc-sa) which may be useful for a full orchestral set. The script still needs some tweaks though before I can prepare the music files (loudness, levelling, etc.).

°grins° Yes, a nice appetizer. Will be interesting to see how far the animation script can be tweaked. Could be interesting for missions and intermezzos.

No - it's only off by default. The Library ships now a configuration script (like OXPConfig), but much more flexible. Just enable it there.

Okay, cool... done! The docking tunnel sequence seems longer, and having removed the two demos, it's followed by a brief black screen where the animation demo would kick in. Oh yeah... is this BGS version the same as the managed version?

I guess you mean on docking. The current shader uses a shorter tunnel on docking (like the old version). But probably it should simply use the same length as on launching as the player reaches the end of the tunnel atm. And there are a few more differences. The shader is much faster now (64 ALU -> 29 ALU), got rid of the branching, uses a higher contrast and simpler door shape and got a lighting effect on launching when the door opens.

And no - this version is quite different to the managed version.

<nods> Aye... 'twas a late-night, dumb pilot, question!

Both docking and launching sequences seem longer... at least, they did last night.

Yes, they are. Will be fixed in the next version.

Oh, and the new shader has the possibility to set the color of the glowing lines (though BGS passes a hardcoded value atm).

New versions available -> Public Library folder

After talking with another_commander, Norby, phkb and Smivs it seems that we may be able to unify the way of handling background image AddOns. Although still a WIP it could solve the execution order clashes between BetterScreens, BGS, hdbg, RedSet and XenonUI. BGS already uses it to demonstrate usage.

The next step will be to work on some more options for Lib_Animator to help creating scenes like

I don't think settings (specifically chatter) are persisting through exits/reloads - should they?
If I enable FX Redux, the docking-tunnel doors don't look right. Otherwise - cool!

BGS currently forces its default settings, because things may change while developing Library. So this is expected behaviour. I'll have a look at the redux shaders - probably I forgot to update them.

I'm having fun tinkering with the jitter settings - very useful.


Hmm... jitter -> jitterbug -> Jitterbug Perfume... a good read.

... I think 'user-friendly' should be hyphenated.
