Importing Graphics

Postby Kaizerwolf » Sun Aug 17, 2008 6:40 pm

I have a few questions about importing graphics to DLE-XP.

1: Will DLE-XP take the Descent 3 grapfics directly as OGF files? Or does it HAVE to be a Bitmap image?

2: If i change the hue of the blue forcefields to red, will the animation stay present in game? Or will it act as a regular texture?

3: If i take the forcefield graphics from Descent 3, will animation be present as well?

Thank you :D

1. Bitmap or uncompressed TGA

2. If you change the color of every frame, the force fields will work.

3. No, because the D3 force field seems to be a procedural texture (or I simply don't know how it is animated, as it seems to be consisting of a single frame).

The Descent 3 forcefields are partially procedural. I attempted to import them, but it didn't really work so well.

So unless you can work out how they're generated and render them frame by frame, you aren't going to have any more luck than I...
