Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

Here's what I'm thinking: https://www.amigaraytracers.com/gallery/gallery.php This is implemented with a simple sqlite database table. Submit button is disabled (because submission doesn't work yet). Thumbnail images need only be 20Kb and a full screengrab is < 100Kb. We could have clickable images ...

Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

A plugin was developed for this purpose, but abandoned since and not maintained. A pity. I'll make a gallery page that displays submitted images of rendered objects. A download link for the object/scene at aminet will be included. Members of this forum could have access to a separate page where subm...

Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

That sounds realistic to me.

For search, tags are more helpful than categories (in my opinion). But I don't think any of us have time to develop a web based submission system that supports tags and has a database at the moment :shock:

So yes, I think categories for now :)

Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

That could work. I think personally the objects should be submitted to aminet and the post here should have a thumbnail with the link. If the BBS software supports thumbnails for posts (just in the objects section) it would make navigation very quick. Otherwise, I could put together a gallery from t...

Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

HOL is on abime.net. It's a database frontend to find what you're looking for (games, in that case) http://hol.abime.net/ aminet.net sounds good actually. No point in splitting the effort. They have over 500 3D objects and all that's missing in terms of ease of use is a screenshot for each entry (at...

Re: New hardware from AmigaKit (FPU for A1200)

Thanks walkero & muadib. I need to be more ambitious then :) I could of course emulate, for the time being.

Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

Hi Muadib,

There might be something better. I'm not sure what, but FTP might suit. Or even something fancy like HOL but for 3D objects which can be easily searched by date, title, author etc.

That's all my brain has to offer at this time :~)

Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

I like this idea. It would be nice also ta have a posting guideline, like the subject could be:

Name of object + file size

And the body could contain a screenshot and maybe more information.

Re: Maybe we need a new section in the forum

Interesting idea Walkero. Would this just be for object exchange / sharing, or would it be also for talking about how to manipulate objects?

New hardware from AmigaKit (FPU for A1200)

I just saw in Dan Wood's video of Amiga Ireland 2020 that AmigaKit will have new expansion cards for the A1200 which have 8MB RAM and a socket for FPU. Would this make Lightwave usable on the A1200? I have an ACA1221 which gives me @28MHz and 64MB RAM so I think I have to downgrade other things to g...
