Re: What kind of GPU is needed for Minetest?

Are you on Windows? Minetest's performance on Windows has been quite lower than on GNU/Linux lately.

Re: Pressure plate is slow

No, because pressure plates poll for player presence every second (doing it more often would use even more resources). There's currently no callback in the Minetest API that says, "do this when player steps on a node".

Re: I want to animate mobs more dynamically

Smooth rotation (interpolating entity/player rotations) needs to be done in the engine. It's been proposed for a while now.

Re: Github Desktop

In my opinion, there is no good, free and open source, complete Git GUI that's cross-platform (and thus works on GNU/Linux). I would advise you to learn the Git command-line, basic operations are not that hard. Note that some editors like Atom have plugins to assist in Git usage ( git-plus in Atom's...

Re: [Request] Minetest Formspecs Maker

Those choices all seem viable to me: Nuklear imgui NanoVG NanoGUI (requires C++11) libRocket (uses a subset of HTML and CSS, slightly CPU-heavy, has been implemented in...

Releasing Minetest for jailbroken iOS devices may be possible (Irrlicht does have iOS ports), but do we want to spend a considerable amount of manpower on this task?

Re: troubleshooting request linux ubuntu

The version of Minetest included in Ubuntu's repositories is too old. You have two choices if you want to stay up-to-date: Use a PPA as mentioned by TumeniNodes, or compile Minetest from sources. Here's a script for doing it on Debian/Ubuntu: https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=3837 (use...

You can compile Minetest from sources. See the GitHub project for instructions.

Type make -j$(nproc) if you want make to use all CPU cores, without having to know the number of threads available. Of course, make without any arguments works too, but will be slower.

Re: Server without port forwarding

Minetest does not support UPnP or NAT hole punching, so the port can't be forwarded for you (or the NAT punched through).

If you want to use an external program to forward ports though UPnP, you can try UPnP PortMapper.
