Slim Shady Lightmapper releasedCommunity Forums/Developer Stations/Slim Shady Lightmapper released
| Slim Shady V. 0.2beta Freeware Lightmapper has just been released. Let me know when there are any problems.|
| Why don't you charge for it? |
-It is a very simple App, far away from to be perfect.
- I took a lot from the code Archives (eg. YAL, the lighmapping algo).
-It was me who opened a thread named "blitz needs more freeware apps!". :)
| :P |
| very good job :) continue ! i like the rendering|
but i keep my giles for the moment :)
| Nice one. Two things tho, on the website, grey on black is very hard to read. And, surely the lightmapping before texturing needs sorting out very badly? Maybe drop a line to Terabit? |
| Thanks. filax - of course, gile[s] is much better. But at least this is now a freeware alternative for the low budgets. MasterBeaker - yes, I guess Decorator only needed a function to export without lightmap. I'll check this out. It isn't a massive problem since Maplet required to lightmap first too, so it's about the same situation, byside the fact that now you can have non-mapletish geometry get lightmapped. |
| Yo. Thanks. 'preciate your efforts. |
| hmm jfk i think this have "potential" |
| well done jfk, i like it |
| Nice one JFK :) |
| Fantastic stuff, thanks very much jfk.|
| thanks, nice to see you like it. BTW. |
Right now I tried again to work with a Decorator-exported Mesh and it worked ok. Maybe the reason why it orked is, I saved the Mesh in Maplet without lightmap, then loaded it in Decorator and saved it non-welded(F9). However, it might be some kind of trial and error. Especially when the MaxMapsize in Slim Shady is not fully utilized (eg. you define it to be 512, but YAL "decides" to use only 256, but doubles the UV values instead...)
This is far from exact science. See it as a game - kinda "return of the mutant bugs" :/
| ouch! silly me, it seems like I only forgot to copy not only the mesh, but also the lightmap to the test folder, so it used to load a lightmap texture that was created with the wrong lumelsize...|
So currently it seems there is no reason for NOT using Decorator first, and then load it in Slim Shady. Makes Screen design a lot easier.
