Good

I have not really touch that part of code, maybe its because I built it on CI, which have a different set up from my local machine (for now). So I'll wait for CI to update its configuration (which should match my local configuration) to build release for next beta.

Added after 9 hours 15 minutes:
@onetwothree

Here's something i gotta ask you for help now. In order to get most of Celestia to work, i had two tweaks in the code.

1. related to the atomosphere in this commit, i disabled atomosphere rendering for an object near enough
https://github.com/eyvallah/Celestia/commit/1f3da28c6cdfbe1364bc068b930d8449b9f4c001
This tweak took place because i noticed the flickering around the edges in iOS, please check
flickering.zip
(8.36 MiB) Downloaded 27 times
for an illustration

2. related to ring rendering
https://github.com/eyvallah/Celestia/commit/19d3bb2163ff61b6e4591db42f2d5e51670093f9 in the bottom
there are multiple outcomes when zooming in on Saturn with the original code.
either incorrect shape of rings

or crash
in

Code: Select all

glDrawArrays(GL_POINTS, 0, 1);
of

Code: Select all

renderPoint(*this, position, {color, alpha}, pointSize, useSprites);


For 1 i think it might be related to GPU, or incorrect setting on iOS. They both might be because of use of GL4ES, but it can also be some part of code in Celestia where we weren't using OpenGL correctly. I hope you can shed some light on it so i can know where to start and possbly solve by debugging

Looks like precision/z-fighting issue. Is it possible to control float precision in shaders with gl4es?

Markerz wrote:there are multiple outcomes when zooming in on Saturn with the original code.

While this looks like a gl4es issue because as we discussed on github attribute 0 has special meaning in GL2 and matches VertexPointer, but it's better to fix this on our side. I'll take care.

As I said this code is temporary added, just to remove fixed pipeline. Proper implementation should "put" point parameters to a buffer and then draw the full buffer using one call to glDrawArrays. Just as we do for stars.

GL4ES translates desktop GL shaders to GLES, so I think float precision is controlled by precision modifier, like hmm

Code: Select all

precision highp float;



here's the original/GL4ES translated shader source of the possible atmosphere related shaders

The Chinese localization is too bad :sad: . Can I help to translate the Chinese locale?

the weird thing is that Android build does not have the glitch, while iOS build has it.

you are very welcome to contribute! Celestia relies on gettext PO files for internationalization.

you can take a look at
https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia/tree/master/po and
https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia/tree/master/po2

is there a Wiki page for i18n? I searched on Google for Ceelstia i18n and I cannot open the top result.

Yeah, this page (https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Celestia/Internationalization) has a little bit about internationalization and editing, updating, etc. .po files. It might help.

You are welcome. You can use either offline tools like https://poedit.net/ or use are online translation on https://www.transifex.com/celestia/celestia/ (you may use your github account to login).

By the way, Celestia doesn't seem to have anti-aliasing on my device, so much so that the edges of the object are so rough that I can only force 4x MSAA on in developer mode to ease it.

yep, also, on Android/iOS some platform-specific codes are required to have it enabled, i've not really written that part. Also theres hidpi issue where contents appear blurry

I have sent a request to join the zh-CN team but have not yet received the pass message. Do you have localized file that can be edited (Po file on GitHub I've modified)?

I have accepted your request. Currently we have only old file (https://www.transifex.com/celestia/celestia/language/zh_CN/). You can upload your updated version: follow the link, press "celestia.pot" and then select "Upload file". After uploading repeat 1st & 2nd steps but now press "Translate" button, select unreviewed translation, mark them all and change their state to "reviewed".

just wanna add that although we have integrated crash reporting system, everyone's still encouraged to report any bug/crash (including steps to reproduce), or feature request here. This will also have improve Celestia itself.

I can see on AppCenter that there's a few crashed in

Code: Select all

Galaxy::pick(celmath::Ray3<double> const&, double&, double&) const
in

Code: Select all

mouseButtonUp
, it seems to be from a Redmi Note 8 user, anyone knows the detail? (looks like tapping on a galaxy?)

I marked them as reviewed, but I don't speed Chinese :) I promoted you to coordinators so now you can review other's translations.
