[Flightgear-devel] Further FGRunway work

2008-08-20 Thread James Turner
I've been working on my FGPositioned ideas in a local git tree, to get a feel for the scale of the changes. One thing I did last night was the slightly painful conversion of FGRunway to be heap, instead of stack based. One interesting thing I've come across is how the runway _length and

Hey. I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of the window controls in FG 1.0.0. I know FGRenderer.resize has to do with the viewport. I'm actually looking for the window dimensions, full screen mode, etc. I'm passing information to a camera, and it needs to know how

James, I can't tell much about the use cases in the FlightGear code, just from real-life experience. Take this as an aide, if it helps you - if it doesn't help, I dont mind you ignoring it silently :-) James Turner wrote: One interesting thing I've come across is how the runway _length and

[Flightgear-devel] only a stupid question about FG and .fgfsrc

2008-08-20 Thread gerard robin
Hello, When loading FlightGear, fgfs looks for the file .fgfsrc which contains ( if we have created it ) a lot of data/parameters --config= , --geometry=, and so on. Is there any way to tell to fgfs to look for an other file for instance .fgfsspe1 ? Cheers -- Gérard

Hi Gerard, The ~/.fgfsrc file is hardwired into the program. However you could remove this file or leave it empty (or put options in there that you always want no matter what.) From there you can specify additional xml config files with custom options using the

Hey Martin, I guess I'd like to ponder this a little while longer. Should be no problem to use the existing mapserver name (i.e. not having git.flightgear.org just yet doesn't impede anyone's development progress), and I guess I'd like to spend some more time thinking about how official we want
