That's not necessarily entirely true. Aren't the terms and conditions described in Orbiter Freeware License apart of the OVP. Also we have software in the D3D9Client package that also includes the same non-sell-ability statement as the Orbiter Freeware License does.

That shouldn't be a problem unless GitHub is really picky about OSD. I once did try to read the Teams of Service form GitHub and the only thing I got out of it was a nasty headache. So, might be better to e-mail the GitHub and ask about it. A payed account on GitHub would do the trick but it's likely not worth it.

The Orbiter-Wiki could be more stress free solution.

btw. The "Terms of Use" button in Orbiter.exe doesn't work. Is that a known issue.

Well, sure, open-source and Orbiter will obviously never be stress-free . However, I don't think that github will have a problem with it, because you don't have commercial use involved. After all, they are not as picky as the FSF.

Orbiter-Wiki is also only half of a solution, because you'd have to think about the download host (and its possible license mambo-jumbo) as well for the complete package.

Sorry, that may be a dumb question: Is there a way to render planetary night surfaces a little brighter than totally dark?

I only recently started to use the D3D9 client. The view and microtexturing is absolutely stunning! But the planetary night sides are totally dark. Increasing the "Planet glow" in the Advanced video tab changes very little.

If I up the ambient light level in the visual effects tab, the vessel gets quite bright, but the planet stays dark. I understand that a planet night side (especially without an atmosphere) is indeed totally dark, but I tend to get lost during orbital maneuvers and would prefer to have at least an idea which direction is planet side, and which is up.

Support D3D9 trouble - unable to launch orbiter

Hi,

I'm running Linux Mint 18.3 and wine-1.8.

I download Orbiter2016.zip and D3D9Client2016-R2-1.zip as explain in this website : http://devio.us/~dv/linux-orbiter.html

No matter options I choose in the video tab, orbiter returns the same error :

D3D9: ERROR: D3D9Effect.cpp Line:253 Error:-2147467259 D3DXCreateEffectFromFileA(pDev, name, macro, 0, D3DXSHADER_NO_PRESHADER|D3DXSHADER_PREFER_FLOW_CON TROL, 0, &FX, &errors)
D3D9: ERROR: Effect Error: Modules/D3D9Client/D3D9Client.fx(542,24): error X3004: undeclared identifier 'rcp'

Any ideas ? My graphic card is a Nvidia Geforce GTX 650Ti

Hi.

Might I suggest a wine 2 or 3 with Orbiter2016.zip and D3D9Client2016-R2-1.zip
versions.

Cheers
