Title: Texture Skewing Tool
Post by: DarkWolf on May 10, 2012, 11:58:38 AM
I know a few people were interested in the skewed textures from the Wolfenstein (and friends) maps I did.  I wanted to play around with SharpDevelop, so I wrote a small C# program that can generate textures similar to the ones I used for those maps.  Yes, floor textures are still a bit distorted, but everything fits together pixel perfect (which was more important to me).  You'll need .NET 3 to run this.

Thanks for sharing this! I was curious to see how exactly it would distort a texture for the ground and although the result looks a bit weird up close, it looks much better than I imagine!

What's weird is that I can access the site without problem, but then again, I know a few webcomic sites that I can't access half the time because they too are reported as containing malicious material. It's possible that this is either a false positive or maybe the site features banner ads which themselves feature malicious codes from time to time.

I had an issue years ago where some malicious code got onto the server.  I removed the script fairly quickly, but it looks like Symantec doesn't bother to re-check sites that have been black-listed.  Great, makes me wonder what other security tools have done this...

You can store your tools in the VGMapper Tank if you want.  It's not there just for saves.

I submitted a re-evaluation request to Symantec, just waiting on that.  It's really annoying.  I resolved the issue with Google so browsers like Fire Fox and Chrome wouldn't show the warning, but I didn't realize Symantec had their own blacklist until now.

You should be able to ignore the warning Symantec is giving.  Like I said the warning comes from an issue that happened years ago when a PHP script appeared that was doing some bad things.  It was deleted and resolved a long time ago.

So I take it you use NIS?
