    If you can find a reliable repro for that, ie what specific situations cause the scaling to screw up, pop an issue on our issues database and i'll look at fixing it.

    HCE Re: HaloCE - OpenSauce - V3 Released

    Yeah, the MP server has to be an OpenSauce dedi to download from it. Which is a shame since then you can't have the functionality of SAPP/Gandanur/etc. Although since the download protocol uses HTTP...

    HCE Re: HaloCE - OpenSauce - V3 Released

    Master servers aren't a per-person/client thing. They are meant to be run by established web hosts, in which case they would most definitely have FTP access to their server for adding new maps.

    Pretty much, from a technical standpoint I wouldn't think that halomaps' structure is able to serve data fast enough for map downloads since it copies data between servers and such before the user...

    HCE Re: HaloCE - OpenSauce - V3 Released

    What Korn was pointing out in a round-about way is that motion blur and FXAA are the most expensive effects built in to OS so turning those off in the user settings xml will result in higher fps.

    No changes have been made to how water is rendered that I am aware of, so it should be the same as it is in the stock game.

    Re: The Halo PC Engine

    I primarily work with OpenSauce now which kornman00 has posted previously in this thread, but prior to that I created a number of programs for working with BSP and bitmaps.

    HCE Re: Shadows won't show up on baked lightmaps

    That would only be if the lightmap UV's weren't adjusted to match the ratio of the bitmap. If you just replace a square bitmap with a rectangular one thats twice the width then yes, double the pixels...

    HCE Re: Shadows won't show up on baked lightmaps

    There is a limit to the amount of bitmap data you can have in a bitmap tag, I can't remember the value though. Generally speaking quadrupling a bitmaps resolution will work on small to medium sized...

    HCE Re: Shadows won't show up on baked lightmaps

    Right, I *think* I know what the issue is. When creating new UV coordinates you can't break up the chunks that are already there. For instance if the original lightmap UVs had two seperate quads, you...

    If your comfortable with doing so, could you send me the BSP tag and Max (2009) files? I'll see if I can reproduce the error.

    Would be worth doing this with OpenCOLLADA if your program of choice is supported (max/maya) since it tends to be more up to date/correct, and the Autodesk plugin in previous Max versions have been...

    Re: Lighting issues

    I think when tool unwraps the UVs for the lightmap geometry it can break up the UVs based on normal texture UV breaks, portals and contiguous mesh (which is your smoothing groups). So you could try...

    [APP] Re: OpenSauce Halo CE SDK Update #2 (RC)

    So that people don't get the wrong idea, you can compile post process shaders into tags that get added to the map cache, but you cannot create your own model pixel/vertex shaders.
