Well, yes, if you have a text file loading routine that's aware of different line endings, it will work, but most programs don't have that. This means that you have to make a binary parsing routine for text files if you want to make sure it'll support the files. For example, FreeBasic will write text files with different line endings depending on the platform, but when reading, it will assume the line ending for your OS, so if you're passed a file from another platform, it will not read it properly. This may have changed recently, but I don' t know, so I don't run the risk. Therefore, I create my own binary routines to read text files when I make multi-platform programs. Being able to ignore line endings makes everything pretty much simpler.

Texture would look good in triangles for a future renderer. I first want to do this with plain colours, because I don't want to add an extra problem to my project right now, but eventually, I'd like to add texture. I've been thinking that, if I want to add textures in the future, I'd first switch from a triangle-based renderer to a quad-based one. It's much easier for UV texture mapping.

Hey, I've been trying to build stressed from source and always have problems. Did you build it for GNU?  My problem is that it requires qmake and when I try to install Qt development, it turns out it's no simple task and I get lost. How did you get this done?  Or does your GNU distribution already have it installed?

I've built stressed.exe from source and extracted some car models
The models seem to have holes, is that a problem - i thought that models should be closed to ease rendering?

Is there a way to create new wiki categories with limited access for team specific content?

I would like to make some new articles related to useless Looping stats (e.g. sport records), which could be edited only by team members. And of course by the Wiki admin.

I think it can be done, by creating a custom protection level. I'll look into it and get back to you.

(Do note that, while editing can be restricted, viewing can't. Also, the list of users which can edit is fairly short already.)

But how am I to know the good side from the bad?

Some way to distinguish the alternate version would be sensible. If only for support reason's

That's sounds reasonable. We could update the version number to 1.2 or something so it is clearly something new.

ok - will take a look what is needed

(I've done that in my testing copy.  8) just because I can )

So, if i understand correctly it is very difficult to remove the copy protection from the original file without using execombiner to make a new executable.

correct

the freeware edition would have changes in serveral files and setup is then dead

we could have serveral executables and our own stunts.com (using setup.dat for configuration calling the correct game executable with correct parameters) - but then is maybe more like an "extended" edition

Not that i'm opposed to the idea. But it would have been nice to have a ' Freeware ' edition with only original files and working setup..
