4.4.4 Frame phase events
To handle events during different points of frame processing, handlers of
‘csevFrame’ can use simple helper macros to classify themselves as
belonging to any of six “phases” of frame creation.
Logic - game logic to be performed before any rendering is done.
Use the ‘CS_EVENTHANDLER_PHASE_LOGIC(x)’ macro.
3D - rendering of the 3D view, after the logic phase and before
the 2D phase. Use the ‘CS_EVENTHANDLER_PHASE_3D(x)’ macro.
2D - rendering of 2D overlays; after the 3D phase and before
the console phase. Use the ‘CS_EVENTHANDLER_PHASE_2D(x)’ macro.
Console - used primarily by the Crystal Entity Layer
(CEL), after the 2D phase and before the Debug phase. Use the
Debug - used primarily by the ‘bugplug’ plugin, after the
console phase and before the frame phase. Use the
Frame - final rendering to the screen, after the debug phase.
Use the ‘CS_EVENTHANDLER_PHASE_FRAME(x)’ macro.
These macros, included in the declaration of an event handler class,
provide all of the naming and constraint methods to make instances of
that handler class schedule their subscriptions to ‘csevFrame’
within the appropriate phase. (You will not be able to use these macros
if you need to subscribe the handler to events besides ‘csevFrame’
and apply ordering constraints for those events.)
