Re: No Cafu.exe

Hello Rob,
welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome:

At the above mentioned dive-in page, you can get the Cafu source code or (a bit lower on the same page in section Binary Releases) ready-made binary demos. The latter come in zip files and contain the executables. :up:

Re: Serious question about Cafu.exe and CaWE rendering problems.

It's great to hear that you solved the problem! :wohow: Why exactly it didn't work with 16 BPP is difficult to tell from here, as I cannot see the details of your system. However, I actually would have expected quite the opposite, namely that it doesn't work with 16 BPP at all and quits with an erro...

Re: Serious question about Cafu.exe and CaWE rendering problems.

Hi Dax,

ok, we're getting closer: this is the right error log (actually, it's the console output), but not complete.
Can you select and copy the entire text contents of that window, or, better yet, open a command line window and run the Cafu.exe from there? See Running the new Programs.

Re: Serious question about Cafu.exe and CaWE rendering problems.

Hi Dax,
welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome:

Are there any error messages when you run Cafu.exe from the console?

Btw., why was it a problem compiling GLFW? Did you install from the Git repositories as explained at Getting Started with the Cafu Source Code?

Re: Any Plan For PBR Implementation?

Hi Kenji,

well, PBR is a broad concept with many models and variations. We have implemented a considerable part of it, although we're lacking some of the latest developments. And of course there is always room for improvement.

Help, in any variation, is always welcome! :up:

Hi Kenji, welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome: With PBR you mean Physically Based Rendering? Well, in the sense of the Wikipedia article about PBR , we have already covered many important parts of it: Radiosity lighting combined with Phong shading with normal maps and specular maps, detail maps, le...

Hi Pectabyte, welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome: If you cloned the repository, you got the source code. You have to compile the source code in order to get an executable file. Instead you can download the binary release, it has a ready-to-run executable file. For both, start at https://www.cafu.d...

Re: Raspbian Building Issue

It seems that you've installed Cafu into directory /home/pi/Documents/Cafu Engine/cafu/ . Could you please rename this (or restart with a new clone) so that the path has no space characters? If you're renaming the path, that alone may not be sufficient to fully recover after a problem like this. Esp...

Re: Raspbian Building Issue

Hello,
welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome:

Can you please post the entire output of one run of scons? (Omit the -j 4 until the problem is fixed.)

What version of Raspbian are you using? July 2017?

Re: Terrain faces ?

Hi, I suspect you're referring to the "Island-BaseTex.jpg"-method of overlaying the entire terrain with one big prefabricated "painting"? Yes. ... and your software correcting for escarpments (areas with lots of vertical faces)? Yes, although there really isn't much to correct. S...

Re: Terrain faces ?

No, not directly. All parts of the terrain must be covered in the material that is used to paint it, as is shown in the terrains that ship with Cafu (TechDemo, ReNoEcho). This was/is intended to be used with a texture-generation tool such as Terragen (there are more, I have to look up their names), ...

Re: Terrain faces ?

Unfortunately, that it not possible. The core feature of terrains is their level of detail implementation. Specifically, we use the SOAR algorithm, see ⋅  https://computation.llnl.gov/casc/SOAR/ ⋅  http://www.andrasbalogh.com/RangerMk2/ ⋅  http://www.ogre3d.org/forums/v...
