But a 3500 GTX? What the hell is that?
Exageration, plain simple ;), I mean that those guys are capable of buying a 600€ gpu and the next month buy another of 1000€ just because it gets "outdated" (those high end pcs ended in the second hand market).

I did see a extrange amount of lighter greenish pixels surrounding the "2" number, but It can also be a camera backside effect. ;)

Be sure to use vis blockers if not r speeds will skyrocket...

No, it is NOT a camera effect. It is my monitor. I swear, I can see individual pixels on my monitor, and measure their dimensions.
Look again:

Focus on the number 2. Zoom in in your browser if you need. As you can see, it is made out of green dots, on a black grid. Those green dots are the green sub-pixels, and the red and blue ones are turned off :)
Get it? RGB pixels.

After all, the native resolution is 1280x800.
And, umm, how do I use vis-blockers on an open map? I don't understand this outdoor optimization :(

I saw them the first time, but it looked to me as a bad setting of the monitor instead of a pixel problem, but maybe you´re right and something is starting to fail there. If so, sorry, my old 17 inch monitor started with something similar, a line that covered all the width of the screen with a slight lighter appearance, unnoticeable at first sight, but it appeared when using black backgrounds and such.

For the open range maps, you must take in count that, unless you will make a completely flat ground, outdoor maps have rocks, cliffs, little forest, high grass zones, buildings, etc. Use them as vis blockers ;)

I don't think he has a problem. He's just saying he has a low end monitor.

Mine was a "Yuraku", an unknown brand came from an unknown country, worst than that I think there's none, haha!

Yes, that's what I meant to say. Not only low-end, but bottom-end. Bottom-end everything.

Used to run an old 17" 1280x1024 monitor (4:3 Master race), but now Ive got an 24" 1920x1200 Full HD one. The difference is:

I always preferred correct colours over flat screen or screen size, but, 30kg to 50kg for an large professional CRT is a bit too much.

I remember that, before my PC's death in 2014, I had an LCD monitor. Its native resolution was 1440x900.
I still have it today, so I hope I won't need a new one, once I buy parts for my PC :)

I think that 1440x900 is a nice compromise between 720p and 1080p :D
Though, it's not 900p, because that's 1600x900 (I think).

None. It's for Genesis.

Far Cry is for PC! (it wasn't released for Genesis, obviously)
Man, do I hate jokes like this, especially sarcasm. Really, if anybody is willing to communicate with me, exclude any jokes other than memes.

Bruce, the graphics are like this because:
  • Incomplete UV maps
  • Very low res textures = low res shadowmaps
  • Terrible lighting
Dude. It's simply because of the process! BSP gets converted to OBJ, and that is converted into a Far Cry model (untextured, in my case).

Oh you know what? Screw it! I was trying to be nice to everyone, but it probably isn't worth it. I just say "Hey, I'm porting de_dust2 to Far Cry" and you respond with "great graphics, is it for SNES or Mega Drive?". Damn you, man. I might aswell cancel all my WiPs and seriously never finish them. I might even start writing the F word uncensored, I might even start hating you! Stop it.

I had a bad day at school today, that probably explains my reactions :(

Edit:
Do you know what's preventing me from behaving badly? Admins, moderators, site rules, my personality, my reputation, and me.

Cool it. He spoke in jest, not in derision. If you know why it looks the way it does, and it's not your fault, it's hardly worth the worry. Just do what you do :)

That said, if you just said the only jokes you want to experience are memes, the door's just over here. link

Nonono. I only needed to export the textures from CS and do some basic UV-mapping. Then, it would look something like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyKTRfDr67w
That guy directly ported cs_office into Far Cry. And I'm trying to do the same with de_dust2.

Sadly, the worst part is, exactly, the texturing :o
Standard CS maps refer up to 150 textures, and that means I'll have to apply 150 different materials in 3ds Max, and convert 150 bitmaps either into JPEG or DDS.

Oh and, I'm feeling much better now, and I calmed down :D

Posted 2 years ago2017-02-10 21:07:46 UTC Post #333426
Unfortunately, Crafty doesn't load the textures at all, only the embedded BSP textures. It's a problem, or maybe not a problem, who knows.

Anyway, I got it to a somewhat-OK phase:

Oh, c´mon!!, I am sure you can do better than that!!, I see there 3 floors, the steps are far smaller, and the lighting is...weird?, is it a pre-release?, I can´t belive that you that have done that awesome work with dust2 will consider this a final release!!. (Great expectations mode on)

I did too!!, we should wait until v3.0 of the map is released, then I´m sure we´ll be amazed ;)
Posted 2 years ago2017-02-13 12:37:11 UTC Post #333470
What v3.0!?

The one I linked was version beta 3 (I think) so that translates to v0.3 in my versioning system. The second picture shows the reboot in v0.001 (pre-alpha 1).

But hey, my school map will certainly be good :)
About the good texturing part, well, I'll try my best and we will see what happens.

Dunno shomehow I have the feeling some people are going into asshole mode here in TWHL, maybe they should remember they started @ zero too one day. Admer456 since you are really young and allready made a lot of cool maps, I think you are able to do even better, maybe I should teach you how to use some stuff in a better way.

Also Vodka, I like your ideas about a mine cs map but there isn´t much to see yet :) Also keep working on the maps, it is the only way to get better.

I think every new mapper is really welcome in such a dead and unfriendly community.

Why, thank you Trempler :D
I started mapping when I was 12, and even then, things had lots of potential. Though, as my skills improved, I lost potential and ideas (maybe not, who knows)

But then, I have these unfinished WiPs, so that's at least one thing I can work on :)
E.g. Sandstorm, Left4Crabs, dm_/fy_stoned, fy_rknsand, de_kobbl (I'll get paid for that one), de_crater and de_avposs (a.k.a de_stroytheschool). Many more to come.
maybe I should teach you how to use some stuff in a better way.
Well, that would certainly be nice.
I am a (mostly) self-taught mapper, and nobody ever taught me anything. What I know is my own knowledge I gathered, mostly from my experience. Tutorials helped me start, I "brushed" off the rest. xD (get it?)

So, the scars of self-teaching are certainly noticeable in me :)

I know that feeling too, I started mapping with 10. Now I´m 29.. so yeah there are still features and stuff I never know about, even after all this.

And yeah try to finish something, I have this perfection problem and stop releasing stuff that is nearly 95% done but than something turns out bad. Anyway.

Yes, every of us are still newbies here... :\ Anyway, we all have seen what he did with CRY engine porting Dust, maybe our expectatives did sound a bit like criticism, if so, sorry. Give me the Asshole Award if there´s one round here :walter:

Just as a reminder: he´s only 14 years old!!, what he would achieve with 29, 30 or more years ? I did started at 25 with full bright maps, didn´t know what was a leak almost after 3 months after my first map... :crowbar:

BTW:

W-Wait!!, where are we then?, "unfriendly", I thought this place was TWHL not Thewavelenght.net!!, some harsh answers to newbies there... :rly:

Yeah, see, I'll turn 15 on the 23rd of February :D
Man, finally a nice number. 15 is quite a neat number, actually. It's 1/4 of a minute (in seconds), and so, it's 1/6 of 90°. Man, I can't wait to turn 15.

@Trempler
So you're saying:
"Stop releasing stuff when you go up to 95% and then something goes wrong."
What? Only 3 GoldSrc maps ever reached even 80%, at least in my situation. Those include: fy_rknsand, de_kobbl and ts_untergrund.
Only of which, ts_untergrund was released as a map.

Or maybe I didn't understand what were you saying :/

I mean, why would we ever have wooden planks on the stadium?

If I were to walk on that in school, they would snap and break. That's why we have concrete slabs instead :)

Taking a second look at them, they probably look like half-burnt planks, but they're too thick.

Neat, although not much to see. I like the overall feel. However, the bulb is too bright (actually, it shouldn't be bright at all because no light goes out of it). Also, the window is too bright as well.
