Panda3D useable on Dedicated Machines?


Just a question… did anybody got the Panda3D Window working using a “real virtual” VNC (server)? I am messing around with Panda’s capatibilities of letting it run in a kind of a “dedicated mode”… but it doesn’t start within a VNC connection and if you need most of the Panda3D functionalities but NO Panda3D Main window at all (because the console is enough for this) you are also lost…

I am only successfull when SSHing (ssh -X …) to the machine of choice and start the Panda3D program there… but the bad thing about it: You need to have ALWAYS the connection to the server opened, otherwise the program will close down :confused:

Do you mean, you want to run a Panda application without opening a window?

There are several ways to do this. One easy way is to put:

window-type none

in your Config.prc file.

Then you can run your application from ssh without problems.


Exactly that!

drwr, you’r a HERO :smiley:

Thank you.

… by the way… disabling the Window dropped the ping time round about 40 msecs :smiley:
