Are you using Internet Explorer 6 for download? -> The 3.3 GB download will fail (Use IE 7 or higher instead). The question still ...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development will begin soon

What will be the dev environment for 1.7.0?
QT4/5 I guess?

Or do you plan to change to QT for 2.0?

Re: Black Body Star Textures

I used exactly this filter for the O-K & L star textures. So you already know what to do. :wink: I don't see how the non-pow-of-2 texture is affecting the pinch effect? The non-power-of-2 does not effect the pinch effect! It's the cylindrical image (its upper & lower edges) itself, so to sa...

Re: Black Body Star Textures

Thanks, John, that's what I meant.
@ FarGetaNik: Go ahead, fix the scale for "mstar" (like e.g. 4096 x 2048) and eliminate the pinch!

Please note: There are also some seams in your image! Eliminate them too.

Re: Black Body Star Textures

Isn't there a pinch filter in GIMP?
Like (in german words) Filter -> Verzerrungsfilter -> Polarkoordinaten... in Photoshop?

Re: WARNING PLAGIARISM !!!!!!

As a maintainer of the Motherlode I would like to save Luke's reputation! Generally everybody can select an authors name from drop down list when one uploads an add-on. Somebody must have selected Luke's name under the list and tried to pass it off as an add-on by Luke. Since the IP address of this ...

Re: Convert UTC time into Local Time

Re: Forum address issue

As long as this DNS issue persists (as far as I know since the beginning of November 2013), the forum and the website will be almost dead.

Maybe Chris just forgot to renew his domain registration for shatters.net?

Re: Right hand not talking to the left!!!!

Phil, in a personal mail on Feb 10 I told you why your two very big files is a problem. And this problem is *not* "Right hand not talking to the left". AFAIK John even did not check your 72 Her upload since the first time you did upload the files in a wrong format, your second uploads were...

Are you pointing to your portal2-add-on update?
