    high-end graphics engine

    Thanks for your reply, Crowley99! The attributes that will be of main concern are polygon color, material, textures (per pixel processing); may need to update all 1million polygons + several texture images at each frame. Also need to simulate fog, smoke, explosion, dust effects... I have to confirm that such is achievable with the high-end engines, DVI output 1024x1024 at 200Hz frame rate. If anyone has experience or know a system that can handle these requirements, please let me know. Thanks!
  2. Does anyone know of a computer system/graphics card that can process a million polygons and produce DVI output at 1024x1024 pixels at 200Hz frame rate? Thanks!
  3. Thanks for your suggestions, lightbringer! The web-based GUI is supposed by the simpler part of my task (the main work is on the number crunching application), so I am just trying to find an exiting tool/API that can be used to easily make the GUI. Basically, I want to be able to access my GUI and application by an URL on a web browser. It doesn't need to work over a webserver yet, e.g. if I type "C:\myApp\myGui.html", I want the GUI to show up on the web browser (and also be able to generate and display the resulting plots). Is that possible? Thanks for any help, comments and suggestions!
  4. Thanks for the feedback, aryx & lightbringer. Quote:Original post by lightbringer This really depends on how complicated you want to make it. I can think of a number of possibilities but it would help a bit if you provide more details about the application and potential deployment scenarios. I haven't given much thought into the webserver side of things yet, perhaps that'll be something for the future... The main reason for a web-based GUI is to stay platform independent. The main purpose of the GUI will be to (1) collect input parameters from the user, (2) start the app, (3) pass user input parameters to the app, (4) display progress bar and any run-time error messages, and (5) make plots of data produced by the app. The ability to access the app over the network would be a good future capability. The app itself is really just a number cruncher. It should run as a standalone application, gets the input parameters from command-line if there's no GUI. It'll write the computation results to files, from which the GUI plots will be made.
  5. I just stumbled on the wxWidgets website and started to read about it... Can wxWidgets be the answer??
  6. Hi All, I'm working on a C++ application and am thinking of building a web-based GUI for it. Basically, the GUI will allow the user to specify input parameters, start the application and pass the parameter settings to the application, and then the application will perform some calculations and send the results/messages to the GUI for plotting/display. I've made GUIs in C# and Matlab before but don't want to do that here because of C#'s platform dependence and Matlab library compatibility issues. I've never made web-based GUIs so I am hoping to get some inputs from you guys: 1. What's the best web-based toolkit/API library? 2. Potential problems? 3. Is it possible to interface the GUI with a C++ application and pass information between the two? 4. Any comments!? [Edited by - faculaganymede on March 16, 2010 3:39:50 PM]

    SVN trunk/branches/tags for TKCVS/TKSVN??

    Thanks for your replies, Codeka & magic_man. The info is very helpful.
  8. Hi All, I have svn installed on a Linux computer. I used "svnadmin create ..." to create a new repository. I also installed TKCVS/TKSVN 8.2 to use as the svn client program. However, when I run TKCVS/TKSVN, I am keep getting the following error message: "No conforming trunk/branches/tags structure detected in the repository I won't be able to detect any branches or tags." Does anyone know how to get rid of this error? The repository folder created by "svnadmin create ..." doesn't contain trunk/branches/tags directories. I also installed Tortoise on a PC to work on the same repository. Sometimes TKCVS/TKSVN doesn't seem to recognize certain file updates I made to the repository, not sure if it's related to the above error or conflict with Tortoise. Any ideas??

    Band-limited Interpolation Function

    Hi All, I'm looking for a good C/C++ (or other programming languages) routine for band-limited interpolation. The method I have in mind upsamples by inserting zeros between existing COMPLEX data points and then low pass filters. Does anyone know if there's a good well-tested library routine for this somewhere? Thanks!
  10. MS Visual Studio Gurus, In Visual C++ express edition compilers, is there a way to export the project settings/properties from one project and then import them into another project? Thanks!

    VS 2003 - LdrpWalkImportDescriptor() failed

    In addition to Visual C++ 2003, I also have 6.0, 2005 and 2008 Express installed on my computer. Could the problem be caused by that? I also just installed VS 2003 Service Pack 1, but that didn't solve it...
  12. VS gurus, I am writing a C program that uses a 3rd party API. I have to use VS 2003 because their API is compiled/built in it. The program compiles and builds, even runs OK (from the Debug build) when executed from a Command Prompt Window. However, when I try to run it in debug mode inside VS 2003, i.e. step inside the code to debug, I get this error message: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002). Click OK to terminate..." and the following in the debug output: LDR: LdrpWalkImportDescriptor() failed to probe c:\Program Files\...\bin\ntx86debug\elib.dll for its manifest, ntstatus 0xc0150002 Debugger:: An unhandled non-continuable exception was thrown during process load The program '[3388] myProgram.exe: Native' has exited with code -1072365566 (0xc0150002). I tried several solutions/suggestions found from Google search but nothing worked so far. Any suggestions?

    Set up svnserve on Linux for Windows SVN client?

    I found out there was in error in the instruction I followed: The command to start svnserve should be: svnserve --daemon --root /mnt/disk2/svnRepos OR svnserve --daemon --root /mnt/disk2/svnRepos/myProj Now, everything is working as expected!
  14. Hi all, I need some help setting up svnserve. ----------- ON LINUX ------------------- I have svn installed on a Linux computer and set up my repository in one of two disks: /mnt/disk2/svnRepos/myProj The svnserve.conf file is set up like this: [general] anon-access=none auth-access=write password-db=./userfile realm=my project The userfile is set up like this: [users] user5=pass5 This is how I start svnserve: svnserve --daemon --root /mnt/disk2/svnRepos/myProj/root ----------- ON WINDOWS ------------------- On Windows, I have TortoiseSVN installed so I type the following in Repo-broswer: svn://user5@ But, I get error message: Error * Can't check path 'svn:': The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. TortoiseSVN doesn't even ask for password to the repository. Did I do something incorrectly here?
