    I'm wondering how he can "buy and maintain" a 911 for $15k (his price listed in his breakdown).
    Downpayment? Unless he's buying an early 80s model...

    It took me longer than I dare to mention to see what was wrong with that pic.

    I can see what's wrong, but don't ask me to explain it.

    The draw order got screwed up, it's something to do with the opacity on the fence texture, I'm no programmer so couldn't explain it and tbh it'd probably be rather dull anyway.

    Probably they did a quick z-sort of objects to work out the draw order, and I'd guess the corner of the car slightly clips into the plane of the fence. There's not actually a correct order to draw those objects, if they're drawing them in sequence to a 2d framebuffer (which they appear to be). The correct solution is to either render to a 3d framebuffer, which means you don't have to sort as much but costs more to paint each pixel, or to sort individual polygons and still have a 2d frambuffer, but that's a much much bigger sorting operation. Or have better collision detection, so it is possible to draw in object sequence.

    tldr; No way to do it better without slowing the frame rate.

    I think it's cool that someone can explain why it is the way it is. I have no idea what mal said, and he could have been making it up, but it sounds good to me.

    To be honest, if you know enough about z-buffers and wotnot to actually understand what I wrote, it almost certainly doesn't tell you anything you didn't already know. I could've made it much easier to follow by making it much longer, but this is EG, y'know. Guess I was just showing off, in a weird sort of way.

    I don't even know what a z-buffer is.

    I barely know what's wrong with that picture.

    No, it's because the Z ordering is fucked in OpenGL if the textures have an alpha layer. The solution is to not use an alpha texture.

    A good, informative post on z-stuff.
