Indication: walking against wall

Apr 24, 1998, 9:08pm
I would like to see an indication in the browser that I cannot move forward
because I'm moving to a wall. This is not always obvious and when you expect
slow frames/sec it's not always clear why you don't move.
Some parts in some worlds are also build with some errors so that on some
parts you have to 'fly' or use the shift-button to continue in the requested
direction

Thank you. My computer is relatively slow, indeed (P133, 32Mb RAM, Matrox
Mystiqe 220, in Europe) and sometimes it takes a while to know what the
computer is doing when I can't move anymore. Sometimes is just a slow
computer, sometimes moving continues after data is received over the modem
again (I live in Europe) and sometimes it is that I just can't move.
Not being able to move can usually be seen in advance but can also happen
because of bugs in the 3D world when something is not aligned properly. Also
sometimes having 1 frame/sec does not help.

I intend to upgrade later this year to get >15 fps all the time but until
that moment I would need the indicator to navigate through 3D better, thank
you.

objects (including avatars) in view, the slower AW gets.


I already upgraded to 64 Mb and that meant less swapping. In Q3 3dfx (from
the Voodoo chipset) will bring out 'Banshee' a 2d/3d chipset that will give
Voodoo2 or more 3D speed. I will take that opportunity to upgrade to a
Pentium II (at the most Mhz my money can pay at that moment) with AGP and
start with 1 SIMM of 128 Mb, to start with. My main use of AW is not so mucg
chatting as walking around in the beatifull 3D worlds and that needs a lot
of memory

The Banshee should get me high framerates even in comlplex scenes at at
1280x1024 resolution. This is something to look forward to !!

3DFX support....

My solution to this problem ( I also have a Voodoo full screen) is to wait
for 3dfx Banshee or to but a Voodoo Rush card. Both will do 3D in a window
at Voodoo speed and with Voodoo (Glide) compatibility.

GUI version of world-server

Jan 29, 1999, 8:26pm
Hi COF,

would it be possible to write a GUI version of the world server ?

This would allow to have a log-window with ONLY the actions of visitors and
not the hearbeat. And the heartbeat could be displayed in a different way
(one line with 'last hearbeat at xx:xx:xx') And possibly a few other
features

Also I would like the world server to automatically shutdown when Windows is
shutdown. Now I have to do ^C to stop the server. GUI apps seem to be able
to do that automatically
