....could it b?

No todo's to do, some tidy up's and checking but, no todo's to do.
not going to say it yet......but the end is basically......just over there past that big cock up you can't quite see around that corner, next to that thing you forgot behind that bit you did totally wrong.

Limping over the line

Still one final thing to do, explaining and reusing terrain collision meshes.....oh god its slow work....

Sadly my main model for the environment isn't especially good, creating more issues, But I have managed to get the main code in and running, I've got the screen shots and code snippets. I just have to fix or find the model that can provide the right visual cues to explain the points...and then its done.

Been working 20+ hour shifts for the last 4 or 5 days...on top of 14-16 hour shifts....I am close to dropping dead...but the thought of being done with everything is keeping me going.

hopefully my next post will be...its done!! praise bejeebuzz.

watch this space.

I had a relatively painless experience installing Bullet Physics, the test systems worked ok, I put my cars in and they fell and bounced, but rotated problem things I...

I'll rotate them back....only for the physics to stop phyucking working.

Oh and trying to add the debug draw.....bastard system....


an time for a nice cool bottle of supermarket piss weak cider, then back to work.
