Re: Analogue audio redux

Well it doesn't really matter if there is no microphone you still need another plug.

The foundation really dropped the ball on this one. Composite is not more valuable than microphone.

Re: Skin Mesh Animation

Switching to the Pi 4.

The VC4 is not a proper GPU; it's just a toy, you can't make anything real with it.

The VC6 is closer to modern Android devices; still weak, but powerful enough for a MMO!

Re: Analogue audio redux

Hi, so I'm very close to starting to use my Pi 4 as desktop, but the static in the headphone jack is a nono. Any plans of fixing this now around 10 years later? I mean you can't make an ad stating the latest Pi makes it a desktop and then expect people to listen to static / remove headphones every t...

Re: Skin Mesh Animation

Aha! I'll try on the Pi4 after they release next patch then! Right now the VC6 drivers are a complete mess. Edit: I have given this enough attention for a while, how can you design a GPU that can't even handle the most basic skin mesh animation with 50 bones? No wonder nobody made anything useful fo...

I'm trying to get my 3D engine to work on GLES. There is something wrong with the shaders and the program spits out a bunch of assembly at me but I'm not versed enough to understand what it means: Fragment #version 100 precision lowp float; varying vec2 outTexCoord; varying vec3 out_Normal; uniform ...

Re: Where's my Triangle??

Thanks for this example! I also have major performance problems. I can only render 3 characters at 60 fps. Wait now after reboot I get BadAtom... Maybe that is because I use TWM, uncommenting the _NET_WM_STATE XChangeProperty "fixes" it though... Now I just need to understand how I can make my chara...

Does Minecraft 1.14.4 work out-of-the-box on this?

You need 64-bit Java: http://move.rupy.se/file/jdk-8u181-linu ... flt.tar.gz

Re: Rasbperry, JVM, Java and Arm Jazelle #HELP#

Because if I can learn it and compile it myself I can also improve it.

I need to use the Zero because it's small and consumes relatively (compared to the Banana Pi M2 Zero) little energy.

Re: Performance Buster on Pi 2 Edit: Toshiba 256GB SD are bad

Just a finishing comment on this issue: The Toshiba cards are legit. They are 2 orders of magnitude slower in terms of latency than a old 32GB SanDisc. They are 1 order of magnitude slower in terms of latency than brand new 256/128/64GB SanDisc. I have contacted Toshiba, and they are not replying af...

Re: Performance Buster on Pi 2

I'm building a distributed cluster database, no wifi involved. Also the reason I know the SD cards are to blame (unless there is some really weird thing with the Buster release) is that I have my old test cluster with 3x SanDisk 32GB cards performing flawlessly on the same network.

Re: Performance Buster on Pi 2

Ok, I can now almost 100% say the Toshiba cards are to blame. Don't buy these cards, spend 2x the money on SanDisk instead, unless it's a process problem and then we're out of luck for SD cards larger than 64/128GB. I will have to go through the very painful process of custom partitioning another 6x...
