Shadows?! :jaw:

When is that hitting the CVS? And how well does it work?

...Or are those baked to textures? :nervous:

Uhmmm I take the second option. ;)

Same goes for the lights (that I have to tone down a bit now).

Re: A celebration of Freespace
HDRish postfilter and WCS seem to like each other. ;)

Took some screen shots of WCS.






Sorry if they look too dark, I used the -no_emissive_light flag.

Looks like SoL is too colorful for HDRish.... but works great with HDRish-lite. ;)

Hdrish and hdrish-lite aren't really performance drainers, if they even drain performance :lol:

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Yeah ati i think was actually trashing smartshaders, sort of like they trashed smoothvision. Most smartshaders are useless anyway. Mostly it was just enthusiasts who said hey look i can make my game appear in only ascii, or make my game look like an old television broadcast, mostly people making interesting smartshaders out of creativity that no one would ever use because they didn't improve game experience at all. The only smartshaders i could ever account to as being useful and cool and improve game experience and looks is hdrish and hdrish-lite. After that what else are you going to make with a smartshader? A blurred motion smartshader would be cool, like if a ship zips by you really fast and it's blurred. I'm not sure if anyone ever made such a smartshader, and i don't think so. But motion blur was present in 3dfx's last line of voodoo cards which was like the voodoo4's and 5's which was a setting you could turn on for motion blur in any game (back then quake3...even fs2), but i'm inconclusive in whether that was an often used feature in anyone owning a voodoo 5 or something, and especially if anyone here at the hlp owned anything greater than a voodoo 3 (the card i first played fs2 on, and had slow downs with the retail shockwaves) from the 3dfx line. Voodoo 4's and 5's weren't slow cards either, they were quite fast in their day even in the area of 32bit gaming which back then was frought with slow downs and most people using 16bit for performance reasons.

Well, there was some year now DaBrain and Me modified ATI smartshaders (I don't have the link to the topic, but you can find here in HLP forum). You can find a smartshader which mixed motion blur and hdrish. However, the blur effect is too intense that you'll have a headache.

It still works on all ATI cards. They just took it out of the driver cause it would cause problems with new games that use .. uhm some effects (forgot what it was exactly).

Mr.Lolman explains it:
http://www.forum-3dcenter.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=305335&highlight=hdrish (german)


Download the old OpenGL DLLs anc copy them into your FS2 folder (root). Use PS2control and you can use HDRish again. ;)

What? Just copying in a file into the FS2 folder is too simple?
Well it works though. I've tested it. :D


*Looks at the topic name*

This time without HDRish.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Not too shabby at all without hdrish. Now if hdrish were dynamic, even if it were fake hdr, that'd actually be something worth trying to implement.
