#4894602 Loading .OBJ

Posted by Ivko on 16 December 2011 - 02:05 PM

When I needed something quick and dirty for a single model, I used obj2opengl. It parses an OBJ model and creates a header with all the data. Not exactly a great way to do it, especially for more than a few models, but it might work for you if it's the kind of thing you're looking for. It's very simple.

#4756394 What Does Everyone Think About The New Site Layout?

Posted by Ivko on 09 January 2011 - 07:24 PM

I like the new look a lot. Here's a few things that came to mind on initial impressions:
  • There's no alt-text when hovering over a link to a thread to preview the first couple of sentences of a thread. I usually use this a lot when I browse forums and it's a very welcome feature. It's not really super important on gamedev.net though, I suppose.
  • There's quite a bit of whitespace. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, and it probably contributes to the slick look, but I generally dislike excessive wasted space. I'm on my 24" monitor right now so it's fine, but I'll have to see how it works on my netbook.
  • I wouldn't mind having the person's overall rating displayed with every post, like it used to be.
