TDM Beginners Contest

Recommended Posts

If anyone is really offended by Shadowhides comments then you just have yourself to blame. Whenever I read one of his silly posts I just roll my eyes and move on to the next post. Lifes too short to worry about such irrelevent things. I see we have nearly a page of people argueing with Shadowhide. I'm sure he's very happy with all the attention he's getting. So can people just ignore his posts in this thread? This thread is supposed to be for beginners to share ideas and veterans to to offer encouragement. Can we keep it that way please?

 

@SeriousToni: Do you want me to add your friend to the list of particpants?

Sir Taffsalot, I guess he registers himself on the forum and then he'll sure say hello and tell us his nick name so that you then can add him to the list :)

Short question:

Should I make patches for arch ways func_static or can I leave them as worldspawn?

I always turn my archways into func_statics so there's less to render. You can always turn them back into worldspawn if you want to re-adjust them later.

Welcome, jysk! :D

Sometimes you get better performance if you don't convert everything. Sometimes you need those extra brushes to cut the geometry into smaller tris so not as many lights hit them.

 

func_staticing will save some tris, maybe small performance gain.

 

Minimizing how many lights hit tris can be a large performance gain.

 

It's a situation by situaion deal. If your performance is bad use r_showlights 1. If you have a lot of white tris, they are the ones that need split more. (teal too)

I created a few new textures, but I don't know where to put them exactly:

 

Should I put them in the standard directories (e.g. textures/stone/mytexture) or is it legitim to put them in

textures/serioustoni/mytextures?

 

I created a new .mtr file as well.

 

 

EDIT: And can I find out, when I get "SHADER NOT FOUND" in the Media Browser, which part is exactly missing? (right click > show material info; doesn't help) Because it works for some textures and for some not, though I can't find the error.

Could someone please look over this? I made some fabric textures and some wood textures. The fabrics work good but the wood ones are allways "shader not found". I don't see why.

Ah, the above wood textures are these your own..? if so you need to change them to regular jpeg's, what it means my progressive is the compression/quality used.
