  1. LOL, I just want a desktop background, but my monitor is 1920x1200px.
  2. Do you have a higher resolution version of this image? Thanks.
  3. Yeah, the lack of message threw me off.
  4. I am having trouble importing a large model. https://sourceforge.net/p/datsville/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/datsville_inlined/datsville_rev531_inlined_y_boxed_n.ldr There is no error message or indication of what is wrong.
  5. I got an LDraw model up to 225k parts, but that was only possible because I strategically split the model into smaller sections and worked on each section independently. Working with the whole thing at once is painful.
  6. The LGEO files "lg_10197.inc", "lg_10288.inc" and "lg_85940.inc" reference an object named "lg_tech_tube", but this object is not defined anywhere in the LGEO library. It is causing my scene to stop rendering. What can I do to fix this? Thanks.
  7. Since this is a thread about "Online Rendering", I would just like to add that in the past I have used Microsoft Azure to set up a virtual machine to do POV-Ray renderings. You could do the same with Blender or whatever. It's as easy to set up as any other Windows programming environment. Windows comes pre-installed. All you have to do is install POV-Ray and copy your model files over. Google has its own equivalent service that works about the same way. While not a render "farm", there are compute engines available with 64 cores, which is a lot. I'm not sure how the price compares to MecaBricks, however, since I used the $200 in free credits you are given for creating a new Azure account. Maybe someone can work out the math. My 2 cents.
  8. Two questions: 1. Could you mirror this tutorial to the LDraw wiki? 2. How do you export to POV-Ray from within LDCad?
  9. Sadly, ldraw2sunflow is no longer being updated either. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/113687-software-ldraw2sunflow-a-rendering-engine-for-ldraw/
  10. I am getting 403 errors when I try to download the installer from here. Is there a better place to get it from?

    I have run into problems with LeTBS. It does not work well with sprites bigger than 1x1 tiles. So I am at an impasse. Anyway, I created a ModDB account for the game here: https://www.moddb.com/games/datsville-rpg

    You can download the latest version here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/groo0cvf07ic1je/Datsville_RPG_v0.8.0.zip There are graphical issues with the LeTBS combat scripts that I don't think can be solved. I haven't gotten any feedback from the scripts' author.

    I ported some of the maps and graphics to RPG Maker MV. I still have to implement the new LeTBS combat scripts however. Here's a screenshot: As you can see, the resolution of all the graphics has increased by 50% in the latest version of RPG Maker. The game window is also HD now.
  14. Depending on the settings that I enable, it can take anywhere between 6 and 24 hours to render. An alternative would be to use cloud computing. It might take 1/3 the time (16 threads at 2.4GHz instead of 4 threads at 3.6GHz), but the rates are about $1/hr or more. I used the $200 free service trial period on Microsoft Azure to do a render, but ran out of cash pretty quickly!
