About star flare

Post #1by LBV 2012-26 » 16.04.2019, 13:47

Celestia EP developed by Alexell adds a very beautiful vision star flare,This is a huge improvement in Celestia's picture quality. And the screenshots of Celestia EP are also used on the homepage of Celestia's website. Why not keep it in the new version? (Attach a screenshot of some plugins made by Celestia friends)

Well, I think they did put it in there but somehow, my computer renders it as this:

Unless I have a different or weak graphics card, it could be the problem that you mentioned: That it's not properly there in 1.7.0

Original EP patch is lost I suppose. We plan to implement a better way but we need a texture.

I also keep the patch for Celestia EP.
I don't find any texture of star flare from Celestia EP.exe and Celestia's folder. It seems like program generates.

My HD 3000 graphics card runs Celestia EP, the star flare will turn into a white square, I think this problem may be similar to your problem.

Oh I had that same problem too, if you switch "Star Type" to dots, and not add opengl32.dl into your file

Could you share it with me?

Chris proposed a better and faster way to do the same but using a texture.

你能跟我分享一下吗?
Ok. But because my smart phone's operating system is iOS 12.2 and no "prison Break", I can just share my BaiduNetdisk Link. It's speed may be very slow, please wait patiently or use "PanDownload", "SpeedPan"or"Proxyee down"etc tools.
The Celestia EP 1.7.0 patch link: https://pan.baidu.com/s/1zCMW_FgGtYULbtWDnt7vMA Extraction code:WJ22
The Celestia EP 3.0.0 zip package link: https://pan.baidu.com/s/16Me0RchrUygvxXS9ZU3Y1w Extraction code:Ez5L
I'm a Chinese Celestia fans, so the URL language is Chinese. It should be noted that after you open the link, you can't extract the file temporarily. Please input the exaction code in “提取码” column, and click the “提取文件” botton to open the file download address. Click “高速下载” to download the files.(Due to Celestia EP 3.0.0 is very big, the URL may be ask you to download BaiduNetwork App to download the files).
If you have Google Translate built in your browser, it is also a good choice to use it.:wink:

The star of Celestia EP is a vision. When you leave a star a light-year away, it will automatically start rendering and displaying. Need to set the Star Type to "dots". :wink:

Unfortunately I wasn't able to download from any of that links as they require Baidu registration. Could you attach only the patch here?

Very sorry. :sad: I'm useing iPhone, its operating system is iOS. As a result, I was unable to upload the file. I may wait until I use the Android machine or computer before I can try to upload the attachment directly.

Hey, I forgot that“高速下载”needs a Baidu account, try to use “普通下载”
