I think these water animations are very "fluid".

sorry.

I'd like to make this compatible with BTSX. What do?
Replacing BTSX textures, maybe?


(WELL, I just read the BTSX posts. Man, I'm a dummy.)

This base work really should be uploaded over at /idgames/

I've never uploaded /idgames/ before - honestly never really needed to. So I have no idea what I would have to do, there, and I am not even sure it's worth the effort.

It's basically a manual implementation of what ZDoomGL did, isn't it?

It starts flickering, like the animation doesn't finish, and starts over on a different position. Could it be my GZDoom?

Hi, I am having this similar problem as well when I tried it, on every versions that I have (which is the latest official build and the old but official build that was released along with the last ZDoom version, 1.9.1 I believe).

Same here, it's not smooth at all. I've used this to test and fix texture warp in ZDoom32 BTW (GL 1.9.1a). It's not smooth in GZDoom 2.4 either, i guess that's becouse my card doesn't support shaders and we're using software warping.

Yeah there is no way I can support this. This was never meant to be run on the legacy OpenGL path. :( Sorry.

What you can do is edit the ANIMDEFS for each texture and remove the WARP2 definitions. That will make the textures simply fade from one to the next, but I don't think it will look very good.

I guess that's a clear sign of the graphics hardware telling you "upgrade me, please!" :mrgreen:

Joking aside, it's inevitable that users of such old hardware will increasingly lose out on newly developed effects.

Hi. This is smooth fluids mod for Back to Saturn X (E1 and E2). Mod contains no new graphics, only code.

BTSX fluids are now smooth, but I don't like their appearance, I just applied original smooth fluids concept to BTSX graphics. I could try to improve animations if I knew how to do it.

I've played Doom 64 Ex.
Now I'm very inspired by its water effect.
How I can do this?
To explain, water textures are sliding in opposite directions perpendicular to each other.

That is hard to do in GZDoom, but it is great when you pull it off. There's two ways: overlaying the textures with the TEXTURES lump or using stacked sectors to fake it.

This is mod where I added fluids.
