    Thread: Texturing and Geometry is strange
Post: RE: Texturing and Geometry is strange

I'm on a mac but I use a Windows 7 on a virtual machine, so I get the .dds files from there. As far as I know, the texture files aren't corrupt and they've been cooperating for a while. As for the t...

Post: RE: What do you like or hate in a custom story?

I really like a story that's unique and... well... good. Like the author had really put a lot of time into it. I think the best example of this is Key to Freedom. The author took so many ideas and twi...

So here, we've got two problems going on. First things first, the geometry of my plane is all messed up. In the level editor, it looks somewhat smooth and paved out but inside the game it appears rid...

I've already tried exporting three separate parts (top, bottom, and the ice lake). The top exports perfectly fine and so does the ice lake. The bottom is just messed. Even without the top and the lake...

So I decided on a making a huge model in maya for the entire map rather than making separate wall, roof and floor textures. It still needs a lot of work, but I wanted to export as a .dae just to see h...

Post: RE: Material Editor Problem

When I edit a model in maya and I have to apply the texture, the image file is naturally just blank because of the fact that it is of Windows origin (.dds and I work on a mac). This tends to make appl...

You're right, the texture layout begins to show if the lantern or a spotlight is used. The texture is supposed to be icy, so it's naturally a bluish hue. The only problem is that it turns green when t...

This is just a test area. But I want the player to take a key, open a closet with it, grab a crowbar in the closet (which in turn will also make an area active between the player and a door), and when...
