Re: Version 34.1
new tutorial "game basics/character default animations"
Mesh Editor now imports all animations from .x files (automatically saving them), not only the first one like before
Mesh Editor also imports skinned .x meshes without bone blending values (containing only bone index values)
changed "Int value" to "I32 value" in "game basics/custom parameters" tutorial - all saveable variables should be declared of constant size
increased world rendering performance when lots of objects are visible and are spread across the world
enabled getting current screen refresh rate using D.freq()
from now on when Physics precision is set to zero, current display refresh rate is used
reduced character controller stuttering at high fps rates
added new parameters CSkeleton::fur_stiffness, fur_gravity, fur_vel_scale
added new parameter StaticFurGravity and StaticFurVelScale
added mesh fur length (per-vertex) control in Mesh Editor in Material mode
increased performance of rendering many Markers
added option to set unique leaf bending in Mesh Editor, this is useful when most of the leafs are attached in the same position (like palm trees)
Pak::create and Converter tool will now return error when trying to archive a file with too long name
single pass renderer now supports only even numbers of shadow maps, which results in smaller shader data
added new shadow softing option D.shdJitter
ambient occlusion softing (D.ambSoft) can now be set in range 0..2 (previously was 0..1)
slightly improved ambient occlusion effect
ambient light can now be set separately for RGB components using D.ambColor
added optional typing custom Secure key when creating Pak's in Converter Tool
