    ok guys, after a long discussion with you, in my other thread, i thought i'd show you something what i've began working on,

    now here's the problem i've posted screens, one is CG, one is nonCG what am i doing wrong, i could really use some feedback here, i'd like to begin to move to racer, as world racing 2 is old now and i need something else to bring my models to,

    and racer is emerging from the mire of car modding, failing this, i may just retire permanently from game modeling and thats not something i'd like to do..so if anyone can help me out then i'd be greatly indebted to you,

    i've used the dof exporter for 3dsmax, i guess i've got alot to learn any info please, on what i need to do, once i've got my model to dof format,

    ok...an example...for a basic shader...

    ...this is from the actual lambo...put for the red colored names your Material- and textur- name....
    then it should work...

    does qlog.txt tell u anything interesting? load the body dof in racer Modeler and see what Racer thinks the material names are.

    The dof exporter can generate a basic nocg shader for you. Did you check it out?

    attached is the Qlog,

    if anyone is willing to help me, sort this out, send a pm, i've done everything that i'm supposed to do, at least i thought,

    the nocg isnt working at all now, i'm not sure why

    dof export shows the textures, as does modeler, just not working ingame

    Well, the QLOG is self explanatory - you haven't defined the shaders for your materials!

    For example:
    Code:
    Sat Nov 20 18:32:09 (WARN): [racer/4680] No shader found for material 'wccarbody' in 'data/cars/ve2010/body.dof' (default 'hrt_fade_base.tga')
    
    means that you haven't defined a shader named 'shader_wccarbody'.

    So something like this must be in your car.shd:
    Code:
    vf_standard
    {
       vertex_shader
       {
           file=dyn_standard_v.cg
       }
       fragment_shader
       {
           file=dyn_standard_f.cg
       }
    }
    
    shader_wccarbody~vf_standard
    {
        layer0
        {
            map=hrt_fade_base.tga
        }
    }
