Well, I have it all working in D3D and I must say you all have done a great job with this game!  It's one thing to see screenshots of those glowmaps, but it's a whole different experience when you do a fly-by over one of them.  It adds a whole new feeling to the game that I never felt. :yes: :D

I never got it working in OpenGL, but it could be that the drivers are old.  I haven't updated them in like a year or more (It's an old system (amd 450mhz, GF2) so I'm never able to play new games that would need up-to-date drivers).

I've downloaded the latest drivers for my card right now and will install them at home 2nite.  

The game booted me to windows in the middle of a dogfight when there was a lot on the screen, but that could have been that I had my video settings set to max in all categories.

Thanks for all your help, guys! :yes:

*bump*

Here are the glow maps I've touched up; I went over each one of Bobboau's and removed the residue, cropped to the glowy bits, and added a bunch of new glowmaps. (The Erinyes now looks particularly nice.) I've also added glowmaps for all the FS1 ported ships. Look it over, I think it's nicer.

bobbau, couldn't you do it in single-pass multitexturing by doing something like this:
Code: [Select]

  pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLOROP,   D3DTOP_SELECTARG1 );
   pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE );
   pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP,   D3DTOP_SELECTARG1 );
   pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE );

   pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 1, D3DTSS_COLOROP,   D3DTOP_ADD );
   pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 1, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE );
   pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 1, D3DTSS_COLORARG2, D3DTA_CURRENT );
   pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState( 1, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP,   D3DTOP_DISABLE );


Oh, wait, then the glow map wouldn't be fullbright. never mind then.

i think its safe to assume that the cards will have multitexture support since its been out for a few years.

if they don't just have the HEL pick it up

Bobbau, every card since the Voodoo 2 supports multitexturing, and DX automatically does it in multipass if your card can't do enough texture stages (IE - doing Enviromental Bump Mapping on a GeForce  3/4 card - it requires 3 texture stages).
