height maps? (parallax mapping)
I just want to know if the engine support the height maps (parallax mapping).
I remember doing some height texture test long time ago. It worked
But now it doesn't. I think I'm doing something wrong..
I can't remeber on what *.dds texture format save the height file. It was DXT5_NM, DXT1,  DXT3 DXT5?

I need some help here.

Re: height maps? (parallax mapping)
Current shaders don't do parallax mapping.

When it was supported, it was usually a DXT1c file.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Re: height maps? (parallax mapping)
Do you think that could be restored?
Perhaps could also use a better implementation, as the old one seemed dodgy (though this might have been caused by textures themselves).

Learn how to write shaders. Then add the required code.
