Remember I said I was doing a mission for this? Well, this is the UNfinished product. I can't work on it for about a week thanks to exams. So I thot I'd let people play with it and see what happens.

A really good addition (I reckon) would be if shivan ships glows changed in intensity as time passed. Though you would want a seperate variable for each so they arent all in sinc.

Wouldnt be that hard to do.

I have fallen of a bit on the source coding aspect of the community and then got in quickly on the current release as well as Bob's fs_open_glow release. The glow affects were great and added a surealism to the game i havent seen or felt since first playing the demo back in 99.

then came the black water op;s demo, as soon as i was able to, seeing as how the team made ambient lighting to give impressions of TRUE space lighting, with the shadows and what have you, WHICH I HAVE YET TO SEE MADE ANY DEBUT IN THE ORIGINAL GAME, inspired me to do something more drastic. implementing the star.tbl from BWO AND effects while utilizing bob's glows.

the resulting effects were how do you say... wow.





I had deimos pics too but those i have to relocate or repic. cause i cant find em, but u guys get the point. it even dawned on me to say have missions in space for example where, theres nothing but darkness... and all u see is the lasers, laser trails, and the ship glows... :)

Can you do that with the background? or is that a trick of the glow err.. light... (I never noticed it in that demo??? )

I'm going to take gamble that its a trick: Make a veeery small sun and place it at the same coordinates of ur background.

no he just set a sun bitmap to that spiralthingy what he is doing is showing off the glowmapp effects + non ambiant lighting,
BTW I enabled the ambiant lighting tag found in all mission so if it's set to 0 there will be no ambiant light (or it should be working)
so most missions should look better (darker) already, but I'm not sure if it worked or not

Wow, amazing effect.  Now we just need someone to do glow textures for any applicable FS2 default textures (i.e. all shivan ones and t/v light tiles) so that we can all have the same effects :D

yea bob already did the standard ships except cargo ships and i think hi-res maps. althought the low res works the same...

use the lucifer fs1 textures there the original and look and will look better....

the ambient lighitng was done with the ambient_dark function in the stars.tbl for BWO. although i dunno how to do it normally using normal fs_open functions, but basically even if it had no sun @ the same coordinates of the ambient lighitng, all u see is the shadow, and a light going on direction and blur where there is darkness.

thats why i added the sun in the galaxy to simulate light coming out of there... but i think the ambients are adding the best new effects to date with the glow maps..,

the on/off glow map function would be ingenious...

Duh, I should have read the beginning of this thread a bit more carefully.  I'll say though that I ran into a problem with the code, it just randomly crashed to the desktop after a few minutes, though I couldn't begin to tell you why.  It was in a big custom battle sequence, so perhaps it s something unrelated to the glow code though.

that's kind of an old copy of the glowmapping, I beleve this is the more up to date version less prone to crashing

got it to work - turns out it was a bad pof.  Anyway, did we ever get that funny effect in nebular missions removed?  It's rather odd-looking...  That debug version you linked to doesn't seem to want to open.  It found some bugs in my ships.tbl that hadn't caused problems up to that point, and then it just decided that it didn't want to run at all.  So, I'm stuck with funky neb effects until the next build I guess.

EDIT: Also noticed one bad graphic bob's glow map pack, the Hatshepsut window and black scaly was all goofed up so I fixed it up.  here you go.

First and foremost, I'm trying to get glowmaps on OpenGL.  Phreak posted a thread that he got it working after the initial release and I'm not sure if he posted a program for the use of glow in opengl.  If anyone knows if there was an exe released with glow for opengl, would you be able to direct me to where it could be?

Alright, I've downloaded the glowmap packs (I've d/led every single one in this thread and overwrote the old ones from previous d/l) and placed them all in my main freespace 2 directory.  I've tried several of the fs2_open and debugs and I still seem to be unsuccessful in getting the ships in the tech room to look like the ones here.

I d/led the debug that's dated 1/18 that Bobboau mentioned as more stable and I was able to get into the main hall. But when I went into the tech room the menus came out to be big, dark blue blocks without any text. The ships came out but some rendered and some didn't. When I exited the techroom (via the esc key) it went to a black screen.  Maybe this one doesn't support OpenGL?  Or maybe my drivers aren't up to date?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

you need to make a new pilot

also I cannot test OGL, that build is ether entierly done by PhReAk or has no suport at all, the revamp of glowmaps I did I had to change some OGL stuff blindly (GLOWMAP changed to  GLOWMAP, it isn't an array anymore), so  may have broken it but I havn't heard about it if I did, and I did ask if it was still working.
try doing it in d3d mode insted
