Aaand I've gone ahead and done that:
All prev. patches + some more are in, and I'll push more stuff there
that I'd like to go into the official repo.
(I have 2 other repos on github for experimental stuff, but too bad hg
can't pull from git, and I have been neglecting updating those.)
The thread pool patch may look like a bit overkill right now, but it
really helps against stuttering (at least on WinXP). I'm sure it will
also be handy for some HTTP networking stuff I had started about half a
year ago; or to attempt backgrounding texture & some resource loading at
(Have to admit that the first pool versions deadlocked under high load,
but I think I got that sorted out. Managed to crash ogg vorbis once,
probably overloaded the audio subsystem with too many decoder threads.
No idea; seemed not related to the pool, though.)
Should I drop a note here when I have something new to pull, after my
repo was merged? If all that gets in...
@Andrew: The obstruction grid fix you suggested is in, thanks for the idea.
- This obsoletes the fixed map files.
