Gravity Actors - A new dimension to gamelpay

I've always wanted to take UT3 to the 'next level' and I'd like to hope that the programmers at Epic could make my dream a reality for the new Unreal Tournament and give us 2 new actors that manipulate gravity and player orientation within the game.What I suggest below will add a whole new dimension to gameplay in Unreal Tournament allowing level designers to reach new heights in creative level building.

Installing the latest Intel HD Graphics Driver on Microsoft Surface Pro, Pro 2 and Pro 3 -

This is a very neat thing because you don’t have to bother with searching and manually installing them. The only problem I see there is that the graphics drivers for the Intel HD Graphics chipset are not up to date with the most recent upstream driver from Intel. As I occasionally play games (also my Surface is plugged in to A/C the most of the time I am using it) I want the best GPU performance possible (read: latest driver). The Microsoft-provided Intel GPU driver is a customized version – mainly to to optimize the battery life and ‘fit’ the device more nicely. It is probably not a good idea to follow this post if you mainly use the Surface on battery power. Tilt and Gravity controls on Android sensitivity - UE4 AnswerHub.

Hi Bergwen, I don't know if you have exactly the same problem as I had, but the high sensitivity of the tilt values on Android devices is the result of wrong axis values (at least in my case).

Tilt and Gravity controls on Android sensitivity - UE4 AnswerHub

While I was building a roller game on my Nexus 7 I noticed that if the screen was facing up, the X and Y tilt values wrapped from -3.14(...) to +3.14(...). If the screen was facing down, the axies behaved as they should. So I made myself a little function that recalculates the axis values on android devices, so that (0,0) is facing up, not down: Now my tilting works as expected.

First of all open a new file (I'm working with a 600x600 canvas) Now choose a base color I think you'll find useful some grid lines (just click and drag these lines from the rulers at the border of your window, to show those rulers click "Ctrl+R" ) Now using the grid lines as reference, use the square selection to "draw" the first layer of your panels...

(you can aways draw INSIDE the canvas and then use the filer "Offset", if you want to know how it works, just check my previous tut) Fill these selection with another colour (or the same) and repeat this operation again until you are happy with the level of detail. In this case I've used a lighter color for the "panels" and I've set the Layer style on "Soft Light" and this is the result... Onformative's Photostream. The World's Best Photos of heightmap.
