Good work daniil. Maybe a bit over-fx'ed but good nevertheless :)

I'd really like to send you some demos but unfortunately I deleted all my demos when I uninstalled UT :s. I'll ask llonewolf for serverside demos, in case he has access to the demos.

Let them say I walked with giants. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names never die. Let them say I lived in the time of Narcisuss, sculptor of physiques. Let them say I lived in the time of Zyzz.

Gathering demos is the hardest part! Wink

You currently have the RCam 3.12 data saved in UTRypelCam.ini under the captions [RCam312.CamHUD] and [RCam312.CamControl].
If you switch to RypelCam 3.15, the captions [RCam315.CamHUD] and [RCam315.CamControl] will be added. No data from previous RCam versions will be modified or deleted. If you switch back to RCam 3.12, you can continue with your old projects.

Short: different RypelCam versions won't influence each other.

// If you don't use timed path in RCam 3.15, just ignore. //

Now that you mentioned the UTRypelCam.ini, I found a possible problem with the newly introduced separate saving system and timed paths:
Load your saved cam path at the beginning of the demo to avoid any problems.
Otherwise, the start time for the timed path (= automatic camera speed) could possibly reset to zero.

Fixed it, camera path related data will all be saved into the same class in the next release of RypelCam.

Thanks, Lord.

RypeL is the author of RypelCam (link to his forum profile).

Also RattleSN4K3 (forum profile) contributes to the development of RypelCam.

I'm involved in the development of the UT3 RypelCam since the RypelCam release 3.06.

RypelCam 3.16 is available! Download

With the main focus on performance, RypelCam 3.16 achieves good results with bigger projects. There is no more lag after creating new cam points, since the camera path processing was split from a single calculation to segmented calculations. The reduced extent of those calculations avoids crashes ('iteration out of bounds'), RypelCam runs stable up to the maximum of 800 cam points.


Also some UT3 specific requests here on the forum were implemented:
- correct first person weapons is shown in client demos
- Roll rotation for the camera in server demos. It is a nasty hack of the camera shake effect, but it works.
- wallhack showing player names (find it in the menu [R])
- start demo paused works for client demos & automatically closes UT3 menus

More about changes in the readme.
Feedback & requests are welcome.

Someone made a trainer tool for the UE3 game Tribes:Ascend, which allows to record player movements. It is possible to export/import those records and replay them almost like demorecordings.
These kind of replays could be useful in RCam... even if it is no real rewind. Maybe I'll continue the development of RCam soon due to this:

My attempt to have a recording/playback feature with UnrealScript for UT3 should be in the repo, isn't it?

Well, the latest state of the DemoRecorder is still this one: http://www.ut3darkclan.com/forum/index.php?topic=1580.msg25340#msg25340

As you said, it was an attempt. I get 'devide by zero' in the log, only thing that happens is the player actors are hidden (what has nothing to do with the remaining code for the recording or playback of movements).


RecRecord(), RecPlay(optional float speed = 1), RecRewind(optional float speed = -1) have no effect.


Rattlesnake, please consider one advise: if you find your code working, please merge your changes to the trunk version of RCam. There are so many things in your branched version that make it impossible to overview the code. You turned 10 classes into 61, renamed most of Rypels code, added countless code examples from udn.com (which are never referenced by the remaining code in RCam) and start many experimental modifications without coming to a working version (Hermite interpolation, required to create a cam path).

Don't get this wrong, you have many great ideas, like the uiscene menu and the postprocessing shaders for example, and ofcourse the concept of rewinding via datalogging communication as used in the webadmin intface. It is just difficult for me to pick up your code and complete it to a working state.



My concept of a replay mode is a simple multiarray of a limited number of logged movements. When you want to playback them, the game pauses and the original characters are moved to their previous positions. A real rewind would be better witout doubt, but I really cannot build on top of your code in the current state, sorry.

Would not work well without exceptions. One player (a pawn) is not persistent a match (death etc.) and the case a new hoverboard spawns each time the user switches to the board makes it more complex to move one player from point A to point B.

This must be the port of my "attempt" as my "attempt" was a proof-of-concept which worked but needed to be optimized (dynamically spawn vehicles and apply properties and general interpolation). The other problem is the limitation of the array size (which increases rapidly if we log every actor).

The one version you're talking of is built on top of the stable version. And i migrated last updates to it (probably not the last at THIS time, must be 3.14 or something). And does not interfere anything RCam related. My attempt for a new/different interpolation mode was done to have a more flexible version for editing paths on runtime (with the need of a proper UIScene - -> Key framing in many video editing software (of matinee e.g.).


Long story short...
i think the POC of the recording method is not in the repo. Gonna check it...

Last commit regarding the DemoRecorder was on March 14 2012. Last time you mentioned it was here: http://www.ut3darkclan.com/forum/index.php?topic=1670.msg26201#msg26201, not looking promising about that feature.

If you still made progress on this, you did not mention or commit it.

Sometimes it is better to ignore exceptions, if you reach the main target anyway. As long as there is no negative impact besides that there is no replay mode for single players... this is not supposed to be an accurate 'rewind' anyway, but just something to change some previously set cam points and improve the image range of the camera for a timed path.

Btw, pawns may not be persistent, but player alias are - even if they ride a hoverboard, you still can retrace the driver. So, work on progress, I'm positive about this one. afrodd.gif
