Improving mesh subdivision

Well, I have found the mysterious bug that we always have when we code something. The mesh subdivision algorithm is recursive, as you could imagine viewing the images. In each pass, it divides each face in three more faces. So we have the old face and two new ones, and then we assign the appropriate vertices to each face. In the next iteration we have to subdivide too the faces we had created previously, but I had forgotten to change the maximumFaces index, so it didn’t divide properly. As you can see in the next images, I have fixed it!! 🙂

Mesh subdivision with 2 passes
mesh subdivision 2 passes (fixed)

Mesh subdivision with 3 passes
mesh subdivision 3 passes (fixed)

Mesh subdivision with 5 passes
mesh subdivision 5 passes (fixed)

Next step is playing with the vertices! 😉

superscene day!

Today has been a very scenic day (I am listening to dope/komplex just now to get some inspiration xD). I have been making some experiments about geometry generation (which makes useless using external mesh files). I still have very basic code, I hope it gets better hehe. This lacks lots of features, but who cares? 😛
Here you can see an example of a pyramid iterated two times (to get the mesh subdivision).

Furthermore, I have managed to upload the mp3 containing a magic moment for us: the public shouting and applauding at bcnparty11, where we release scene of the girls. This mp3 has been extracted from the one that kindly recorded Scythoior/sueño while the democompo entries were showed. Feel the same that bcn attendants! 😀

da jormas 10th anniversary

I have taken a look at dajormas web and… they have put there the livesets from their 10th anniversary party! If you are into techno (and some harder flavours) music, you should download them. I have liked specially the first one ("techno"). It also includes some well known demotunes (for example, the one from saint by halcyon and da jormas). It’s always nice to listen to mixed modules, don’t you think?
By the way, if you prefer to listen to separate songs, you also can download da jormas modules and mp3. They are trying to recover lots of old amiga songs!
And don’t forget to download some of their demos and intros 😉

a useless bug report

I think I’ve discovered an incompatibility between two popular programs. But the fact is that nobody will be able to fix it (in my humble opinion).
Well, so here is: if you run emule and impulse tracker, it will probably hang. The screen goes black with some red pixels. (It remembers me of a gore scene, but I do not want to imagine any kind of mule or donkey blood). Who is going to fix this bug? I think that nobody from the emuleproject will take care of a program made more than 6 years ago (and used less and less as days pass). Of course, Pulse is not going to pay attention to the problem, you know… 😉
Well, it’s not a very interesting post but it should have taken some of your precious time 😛
