Nice vid Gzehoo.  8)

I see the issue of the bikes wheels lifting off the ground when the bikes change direction in the replays has NOT yet been fixed? We reported this many years ago now and it's still an issue?  :o  :o

Bug Reports / Re: Sudden framerate drop
Today at 11:09:57 am
I'm probably way of mark here, but looks to me like a painter having x-ray eyes(able to see everything into the distance even though his view in reality is blocked by close objects) and painting everything he sees from the deepest to the nearest z point therefore painting over things it's already rendered that cannot be seen as the z point gets closer to the camera, you know? As though the routine for culling what cannot be see isn't working correctly before finally rending the camera scene?

Either that or maybe it's just a case of the work the scene culling routine is doing to sort out what is viewable and what is not is using a lot of resources which is cutting down the frame rates at that point with there being a lot of objects to sort and cull in the background there?

PS: I know this sounds silly, but I wonder if the graphics engine is sorting with it's own software routine to sort and cull the scene or is in actual fact using the graphics card hardware to sort the scene?

@Furious:

Seems to me that the biggest hurdle Unity developers have in converting over to the EU SDK is the "Lazy" factor: The fact that working with Unity is a comfort blanket and, for them, easy to work with and have probably invested a lot of money into buying all those expensive 3rd party add-ons a dev needs to make Unity a viable option for serious commercial game development; whereas to convert over to working with a totally new engine like the UE SDK would mean learning much of what they already know and are comfortable with all over again, especially the interface and UE's capabilities.

To me the difference is like working with a highly professionally built performance sports car in the case of Epic & it's UE SDK and on the other hand working with a nice comfortable ordinary family saloon in Unity's case. It's chalk & cheese, as they say mate.

But if this high calibre developer your talking about prefers working with the Unity Engine then fair enough, he has a right to his opinion & working preferences as we all have. Good luck to him.  :)
But personally I feel that the Unity engine will now either have to make big changes to compete or it's going to find itself being less and less used over the next 3-5 years and silently disappearing......

Who is this high calibre developer your talking about?

Amazing, isn't it mate..... Backwards compatible with older tech and versions too.  ;)

I didn't think you were impressed with the UE SDK Blackheart?
Are you coming around to thinking that it would be a good idea for GPB and or Piboso's projects as a whole, or are you still thinking that Piboso could ever match the capabilities and ease of development of the UE SDK dev package?

BTW.... The UE SDK is now available for devs to earn $1 Million before paying the 5% royalty on any units sold. Surely a no-brainer decision for devs now rather than creating their own game engine, wouldn't you agree?

Unity are stuffed now mate. I cannot see were they would go now with their SDK except for those that would be stubborn enough to want to continue using it.
The very least they'd need to do would be to match the deal epic have done with their UE SDK, but then, with Unity, one has to still buy all those expensive third party add-on's before developing a game is practical together with no guarantee that those add-on's will ever be updated to keep up with advances..... I really can't see Unity lasting the next 3-5 years now.

So were is the survey your talking about?  :)

Yeah, but c'mon guys..... You gotta admit, 2 strokes are much more exciting than fuddy-duddy 4 strokes and fans can really appreciate the skill involved in riding the 2 strokes..... 4 strokes are just too lame, then on top of that they go and make them lamer by introducing electronic riding aids. You didn't see the old 2 stroke riders needing electronic traction control or fly-by-wire throttles to spin-up the rears through the corners.... What are ya these days, men or mice! Lol!!  ;D  ;D


The bait's flowing tonight guys.... C'mon fishy fishy.... Hehe!  ;D  ;D  ;)

DD. The best way to fight these b*stards is for people to stop buying games consoles and their games. That will hit them were it hurts..... Trouble is that most are too weak-minded to see it through. But I'll tell ya this.... If people keep supporting these leaches and their games consoles then it will be the death of the gaming industry cause these kind of big corporations will only back sure winners... The games industry wasn't created on sure winners and endless sequel versions of the same games year after year..... These corporations are just leaching off of what the PC game industry initially created and they will end up bleeding it dry.

I'll keep promoting people to buy PC's for gaming..... I have done since the beginning of the 90's when I could see what damage they were doing to the PC game dev markets, but I fear with these weak-minded fools that keep buying consoles it's a losing battle?

The only way to beat these console manufacturers is to convince people to stop buying their products and convert to using a PC for gaming only.  ;)

Thank god for companies like Steam and Epic for supporting and keeping indie devs alive to pick up the pieces after Sony & XBox finish raping the market.

You know something Mystic....... There is no reason they couldn't resurrect the 500cc 2 stroke championships now unless they are scared that the 500cc events would get more support than the MotoGP 4 strokes and end up killing off the 4 stroke class for good.

h106frp had a very similar idea years ago to this one JOACKO172, not sure why it didn't get taken up at the time? Maybe something Piboso will get around to at some stage?

Nice to hear your a 2 stroke fan Mystic..... In my day we used to put Castrol 'R' into the fuel, smells gorgeous(I can smell it now. Lol! ;D  )

Yeah I remember when they told us that diesel cars where the cleanest, that was until we all found out that the manufacturers had chipped the cars to fool the MOT exhaust emission test. Sneaky b*stards, eh. LOL! So probably it turns out that all these years they finally got rid of the 2 stroke bikes only to chuck-out a lot more pollution from these dodgy diesel cars. LOL! I always said it was a bullsh*t political excuse to get rid of the 2 stroke bikes in favour of the 4 strokes under the guise of helping to cut pollution..... I wonder what fools actually believed them. Lol! :o  ;D

Anyway I do hope the 2 strokes do actually make a comeback.... Exciting times ahead[Maybe?].  ;D  8)

Quote from: WALKEN on April 14, 2020, 09:02:52 pmits almost like valve amps vs solid state, lol it just never ends.

I had a 500cc 2 stroke and I have owned many Marshall tube amps, now I have a custom built 4stroke mini bike and a couple hybrid 12ax7 preamp with a 420watt solid state amps. I also had a Polaris xcr600 triple 2stroke snowmobile that would just about rip your arms off. But I have never rode a modern MotoGP bike :)   

Great to hear Walken, keep up the good support! ;D  ;D  8)

PS: We desperately need a more extensive choice of expressive emoti's on this forum.... How's about it?  ;)  ;D
