Summary of changes for the update of Ya3dag V 1.40.


* Map 'Lego playground'Lego challenge
This is a 'game modification demo'.
This level has it't own game directory. It can be
selected from the main menu by 'Games'.

* Lego player models and weapons from the
'Lego Carnage Pro' package. This is a Quake3
modification (the creator is not known to me).
* LetGo texture pack from BerneyBoy.
A Lego styled texture pack.


* Added the possibility to select between different games
or modifications.
* A game/modification has it't own subdirectory
* This directory must hold a
* GameConfiguration.txt file
* GameImage.jpg
* The new main menu entry 'Games' allows switching between
the games/modifictions.
This entry is only offert if there are two or more
games/modifications existing.
* There must be one games/modifications existing

* If there is only one games/modifications at startup,
this one will be selected for playing.

* GameConfiguration.txt file
* Specififes text strings for the game to select.
* Customize the main menu of a game/modification.

* Rearranged directories for better support of mulitple
* Moved the .qtr files (the terrain levels) from the
subdirectory 'maps' to the subdirectory 'levels'.
* Moved many files/subirectories from 'RRGame' to 'BASEQ2' subdirectory.
'BASEQ2' is holds files for all games/modifications.
'RRGame' holds only modifacation specific files.
* Reorganized mapmodels in subdirectories.

PLEASE: keep the syntax to help to manage all the things in the editor
* The mapmodel .bsp filename should begin with PF (like prefab)
to have a difference to real maps.
Some of the mapmodel entities support up to three levels of subdirectories.

Please use this name for subdirectories.
* ModXXX Mapmodels.
XXX is a shortcut for the modification/game.
ModCommon is used for the 'xxx/BASEQ2/maps' maps directory.
The models here are availible for all modifications/games.
* LightsXXX Mapmodels used as light sources.
XXX is a shortcut for the modification/game.
LightsCommon is used for the 'xxx/BASEQ2/maps' maps directory.
The models here are availible for all modifications/games.
* FxXXX Models for 'func_xxx' entities.
No further subdirectores are allowed here.
Example: The models for 'func_button' are inside the
subdirectory 'FxButton'.


* Postprocessing effect sepia filter.
If the menu is activated during gameplay, the game background is
colored with a sepia filter.

* Adjust screen FOV angles for wide screen displays.

* Optimized display of subdivided surfaces. All triangles
are drawn in one mesh (and not as many polygons).

* Reworked splatter drawing
* Splatter textures new support normal and depth textures.
* Splatters are drawn faster
* Splatters can overlap

* Circle shadow of entities depent from sizefactor of
model (before there was the same shadow size for
different sized models).

Show a messagebox with text "Saving done" for 2 seconds
as visual feedback.

* Minimap of the editor, the view direction (white arrow)
reflects also the scene view.

* Moving opjects with the numpad cursor keys is now done
in view direction. After move, the objects position are
rounded to multiple of 1 unit.

* quake2RR.ent
Changed 'filedef' to have on line in place of three lines

filedef "FilesItemRecipe"
"gamedata/Recipe*.txt" "file selection"
"gamedata/" "part1 to skip, at the begin"
".txt" "part2 to skip, at the end"

is changed to

filedef "FilesItemRecipe"
"gamedata/Recipe*.txt;gamedata/;.txt" "file selection;skip at begin;skip at end"

* Reworked splatter drawing
* Editor cursor for 'splatter set' action
shows the splatter (preview)
* One of the editor drawing flags marks the
splatter center so it's easier to remove/overwrite a splatter

* Seleted, marked or viedwed enities get an extented minmax-box.
This is handy for better alingment of the entities in the world.
Can be switched on/off by a checkbox inside the editor GUI.


* Reworked operators (precedence was from left to right).
Operator precedence and associativity as known from
the C programming language.
Added unary operators.

Operators Associativity Remark
- + ! ~ Right to left unary operators

+ - Left to right + also string concatination
<< >> Left to right
< <= > >= Left to right also string compare
== != Left to right also string compare
& Left to right
^ Left to right
| Left to right
&& Left to right
|| Left to right Lowest Precedence

sizefactor of model. A model with a sizefactor of 2
moves with doubled speed now.

* Actor weapons

Give the weapon to the NPC at startup.
