Time Nick Message
00:08 est31 Was there any issue why this didn't get merged? https://github.com/xyzz/freeminer/commits/utf8
00:14 VanessaE no answer to my question, figures :-/
00:14 VanessaE est31: probably due to freeminer's license.
00:14 est31 no, that was before the change
00:14 est31 and to your question: dunno
00:14 * VanessaE shrugs
03:14 hmmmm vanessae, I don't believe so
03:14 hmmmm reason being is that backface culling omits the entire tile in the culled area
03:15 hmmmm it wouldn't be advantageous performance-wise to do backface culling, probably, apart from a very specific subset of geometries in meshnodes
03:18 VanessaE well the reason I ask is, you know how nodeboxes only ever display the one side that faces you, right?
03:18 VanessaE (and the 2 or three adjacent ones of course)
03:19 VanessaE a mesh drawn to exactly the same dimensions (pixel for pixel) doesn't do that, all faces are visible
03:19 hmmmm sure, hardware occlusion queries do cull faces on mesh scene nodes that aren't visible to the camera
03:19 hmmmm oh
03:19 hmmmm i think there's an irrlicht option for that
03:20 VanessaE there IS a backface culling option in the node def but it only works for special_tiles
03:20 VanessaE (which of course don't work on meshes)
03:23 hmmmm hold up are you sure that's correct?
03:24 hmmmm for some time nodeboxes have been internally converted to meshnodes
03:24 VanessaE I'm certain
03:25 hmmmm god dammit this code is so sloppy
03:26 VanessaE heh
03:27 hmmmm i'm really serious
03:27 VanessaE oh I don't doubt it
03:27 hmmmm portions of code are copy pasted so hard in updateTextures()
03:27 hmmmm and they didn't even need to be duplicated if it were structured correctly
03:27 hmmmm i.e. check if it's a nodebox and just merely set the type *before* entering that second code block
03:28 hmmmm but instead what happens is
03:28 hmmmm if (f->drawtype == NDT_MESH) {
03:28 hmmmm / do a whole bunch of stuff here
03:28 hmmmm } else if (f->drawtype == NDT_NODEBOX || <other things>) {
03:28 hmmmm // do the same bunch of stuff here,
03:28 hmmmm f->drawtype = NDT_MESH
03:28 hmmmm }
03:28 VanessaE ew.
03:29 hmmmm like what the f
03:29 hmmmm does it really take much brainpower to refactor this into something that's 1). better organized
03:29 hmmmm 2). better represents what's actually going on in the code
03:29 hmmmm 3). less potential for bugs
03:29 hmmmm 4). shorter
03:29 hmmmm 5). maintainable
03:30 hmmmm VanessaE, I don't think this will do what you want it to but try anyway
03:30 hmmmm go into src/nodedef.cpp and remove line 824
03:33 sofar VanessaE: is that responsible for the mesh lighting bug?
03:33 hmmmm obviously not
03:35 VanessaE sofar: nope
03:35 VanessaE hmmmm: Ok, I'll try that soon.
03:35 VanessaE (busy on another model at the mo)
03:54 VanessaE hmmmm: as you expected, no effect from that change.

15:45 ShadowBot https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/2592 -- ignore lava damage, fall damage and drowing if damage is disabled by HybridDog
15:46 hmmmm aggh
15:46 hmmmm this is maddening :)  it's a very simple fix
15:46 hmmmm since zeno is the one who looked into it i planned on letting him have the honor of doing the fix
15:47 hmmmm paramat, you shouldn'tve said in the PR that "we're working on it" because we're explicitly not working on it
15:48 hmmmm i probably should've kept this secret lol
15:50 paramat hehe i wasn't sure if you guys had a solution or not
15:51 hmmmm we want nerzhul to fix it
15:53 paramat exactly

18:06 OldCoder
18:06 OldCoder I will be maintaining Windows 32/64 builds at http://minetest.org/
18:07 OldCoder Is anybody able to point me to "build" resources for Android and Kindle
18:07 OldCoder If so, I may maintain Android and Kindle builds as well
18:07 OldCoder
18:11 Krock Why those empty messages?
18:14 Krock OldCoder, add a description of the build version, if possible.
18:14 OldCoder Krock, to respond:
18:15 OldCoder #1 Blank lines are suitable in IRC for four purposes: (a) paragraph breaks, (b) acknowledgements, (c) announcements of presence, and (d) to offset a block in the middle of noise
18:15 OldCoder This was the fourth case: (d)
18:15 OldCoder #2 The build version is 0.4 stable
18:16 OldCoder I will add a note
18:16 Krock *cough* noise *cough*
18:16 OldCoder Significant noise
18:16 OldCoder As in for example a wall of joins/parts that nobody will read
18:16 OldCoder ^ Sensible points
18:17 OldCoder Pointers to Android/Kindle instructions are requested
18:17 Krock okay, that makes sense
18:17 OldCoder And people are invited to suggest things related to:
18:17 OldCoder http://minetest.org/
18:21 sockbat joined #minetest-dev
18:27 Calinou I hide joins/parts/quitq
18:29 OldCoder Calinou, that is on the client side. It does nothing for other people.
18:29 OldCoder So, for a message to be seen here in a flood of joins and parts, a blank separator is needed
18:29 * OldCoder assumes that iOS MT builds are not very easy to do
