Blurriness on map start
Call of Duty : CoD Mapping

I have some questions
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
I've made a map nighttime by hexediting a bsp. I use HHD Hex Editor, and I think it's freeware. It's been a while sinse I did anything like this, but you are limited to what values you can change as the lighting is "baked" into the map, so you won't be a... [more]

Custom Texture Problem
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
Copy the pk3 containing your shader to you flare compie folder - anything tagged with trans in some way can end up being greyed out like that otherwise. Check the console - sometimes it'll give you info on corrupted shaders qer_trans doesn't seem to ... [more]

Convert PK3 to .Map
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Sort of on the subject of this... Is there a chance someone could develop a parser that'll convert between CoD1, Cod2 and CoD4 map files? CoD4 will load up CoD1 maps pretty much directly - just need to retexture once loaded, and delete the entities ... [more]

Convert PK3 to .Map
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Don't really want to add fuel to this, but, there was a bsp to map converter that had some CoD support. However, if I remember right, it gave unworkable maps - multiple brushes overlapping, and volumeless and infinite sized brushes - in the same way you c... [more]

Lighting difference
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Ok this is with sundiffusesamples at 0.45 - so 1 might equate to 90 degrees come to think of it the left image was with "sundiffusesamples 2" set, I think, and the one on the right was 6 edited on Apr. 10, 2008 07:25 am by |DA|DarkDilbert... [more]

Lighting difference
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
basically fast compile renders the map as though there was only one beam of light (per light), so you get harsh shadows. High settings means more diffuse samples, meaning the game renders a number of beams within the vectors derived from diffusefraction... [more]

Lighting (basic question)
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
Filesystem call made without initialization I think that's the problem. Either flare's current folder is corrupt somehow - maybe dir structure or just a bad pk3 , or it may have too many levels of subfolders. Either way, coduomaker will clean this... [more]

Lighting (basic question)
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
Sorry, didnt see this earlier. Don't worry too much about 2+ major axis problems. It won't cause the entire map to fail with lighting - just that there's a possibilty that it'll fail to light that brush properly skybox shadererror isn't a problem eithe... [more]

[WIP] Island
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 Map + Mod Releases
Looks good. I don't know why people are complaining about open maps. In the older games I can understand, but in this one all the guns are accurate at range, so people stuck out in the open with an automatic are going to be able to defend themselves again... [more]

Blurring Image
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
do you mean full vis and not fast vis? I can't imagine it being that - data size will still be the same, it'll just take longer optimising the cells i believe The portal in the window looks like it might have more than one face patined with portal, but... [more]

Blurring Image
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
xmodels shouldnt be adding data to vis. If you have a big, complex object in the middle of your map try making it detail. It should trop down the number of cells vis makes, but could decrease fps a little if that building contains a lot of detail and m... [more]

max curve/terrain collision triangles (131072) exceeded

Normal maps
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
nah I meant for othergames - they usually dump spec intensity in alpha, where CoD4 treats normal maps and specular maps differently. Spec maps for CoD4 are the ones with filenames starting with ~ - i think spec is the main layer, and glossiness is defi... [more]

Normal maps
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Yeah, the normal maps in CoD4 are just IWD files but they're in a different format to how normal maps are usually set. Not sure if you'll need to know all the following, but it might help In PhotoShop (The Devil's graphics program) you can directly ... [more]
