Vivec retexture to show off/test shaders

Post by lysol » 11 Mar 2016, 10:56

So, I thought I should do a new thread instead...

Just for those who didn't read the other thread I posted in:

I'm not very experienced in this, especially not in shader textures. I did a lot of texturing around 10-12 years ago for other games, but I think you know that the resolutions have increased a lot since then, and I have forgotten a lot. Also, I wasn't very good to begin with, being 16 or something like that back then. But I still did it quite a lot, so I know how to do it at least.

I wanted to try out scrawls shaders and because of the lack of existing retextures with normal maps and specular maps that I liked, I started doing my own retexture of Vivec.

ARGB means Alpha-channel RGB.

Wouldn't that be RGBA instead?

A in ARGB usually means 'Alpha channel', unless I'm horribly mistaken. It could be an issue with your chosen color profile (should be sRGB), or just the way DXT5 compresses colors (I've had similar issues with DXT3).

EDIT: ah yes, you seem to have chosen 8bpp, which stands for 256 colors in total per image. You should have better results with 16bpp 5.6.5 pallete.

Thanks, I'll try that later.

Still haven't solved the issue. But the "proof setup" is set to "Monitor RGB". If I change to "Internet Standard RGB (sRGB)", nothing happens, but if I then change back to "Monitor RGB", I get these over saturated colors directly in photoshop. And the weird thing is that the vanilla textures change in their look too. Dammit.

Anyway, updated the first post with a new picture.

I haven't had the time to do much more since the last picture I posted. I'll do more the coming weekend I believe.

Btw, @Scrawl, I saw this video by PeterBitt just now. Don't know how I missed it when he was working with the specular maps and such, but anyway, parallax maps eh? Totally missed that parallax mapping was supported in the Ogre-version. Did you by any chance include parallax mapping when you added the spec and normal mapping to OSG? If not, are you planning to add it soon? Would be fun to play around with it.

Parallax mapping is not included yet. It's on my list of "would be easy to restore if someone actually wants to use it". Guess what I'll be doing next.
