3d Dials and Dial shaders

Discussion in 'Racer Problems & Fixes' started by camsinny, Aug 27, 2010.

  1. Ok, so, I'm trying to get 3d dials/gauges working properly but there's a bit of a problem.
    How do we define shaders for dials/gauges? Currently they're really dark.

    And why isn't this working?
    Code:
      elt2
        {
          type=digital
          x=0.343
          y=0.331
          z=1.037
          is3d=1
          ; Size
          width=0.08
          height=0.08
          image=GearFont1.tga
          ; Variable to measure
          var=gear
          digits=0
          factor=1
          src_char_wid=64
          src_char_hgt=64
          char_wid=18
          char_hgt=18
          char_dx=64
        }
    I get no output at all. Can we not have 3d digital dials?

    Cheers all

  2. Try a shader in the car.shd file if you haven't already.
     
  3. But what the hell do I call it? O.o
     
  4. Hehe, good point :D

    They have never really worked right for a long time. The system needs clarifying/fixing really, as it'd be good to fix these now and forever :D

  5. So I figured it out, the width and height mean nothing when the dials are 3d.
    When they are 3d the char_wid and char_hgt matter.

    We still need to be able to define shaders for these though!!
     
  6. I don't know why the needles are always such a problem, it seems that they should have had a shader just like the rest of the car from the start of CG. Now they are black in the sun and only visible at night.
