CHANCEPHOENIX, Ok, maybe NOT ;) But maybe I am wrong :) I'll take a look at that later. BTW there are too little places with shadows :(

I've tried, but results aren't convincing. I think this calculations just don't worth it. Shadow is distorted, but not quite right. But for all who want to see it for himself here are the steps: 1. Ch...

Since there is no error string from compiler it is difficult to find the problem. The only advice is to check misspelling. RayLinearIntersectionSM2(aHeightMap, vHeightMapPos, vEyeVec); should be calle...

All who have dark surfaces, try to change line 82 (in RayLinearIntersectionSM2 function) from avEyeVec /= lSearchSteps; //Split up the eye vector into the number of steps to avEyeVec /= float(lSear...

Post: RE: Parallax Occlusion Mapping...

ok, I check now... they are dark if shader compile failed (there is an error in shader). ... No - everything seems to be fine to me. What video-card/drivers do you have?

Post: RE: Parallax Occlusion Mapping...

Yes! That solved the problem. Just use RayLinearIntersectionSM2(aHeightMap, vHeightMapPos, vEyeVec); instead of RayLinearIntersectionSM3(aHeightMap, fSteps, vHeightMapPos, vEyeVec); in core\shaders\...

Enabling POM on GeForce 260GTX, drivers 258.96, Windows 7 64bit cause huge lags and video driver crash after 5-7 seconds.
