Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

I wouldn't call it bad code. Just incomplete. From what I remember, Chris L. was in the process of implementing open gl2 but never finished. He and others went on to other things and development came to a standstill. Glad to see Celestia is alive again. Back then, gl2 was the thing. Now we got gl4. ...

Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

Thank You Much. Fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!! :smile: I had a feeling it had something to do with lodspheremesh.cpp. Had no idea how to fix it though.

Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

I noticed something strange today. I was getting similar results that you were getting. All the commits I thought were working were showing results that you were getting. This was after I renamed the shader folder to stop its use. To make a long story short, You seem to need the shader folder in Cel...

Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

Although its possible that commit b9d532a90 caused the problem, I checked the next one Celestia-6653929310fc6a6bcf7bb3151285031cd93b4252 and the problem was there. So maybe something was forgotten when removing vertexprog.cpp from the library or there was a bool statement in render.cpp removed that ...

Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

F478faa5 was just before 4ad277ed. The captured image from f478faa5 was posted above. 4ad277ed looked the same. In fact I downloaded 4ad277ed last night and was gonna try it this morning next. I was unaware that 8a89 had fixed the invisible planet. That seemed to be the last commit that rendered the...

Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

I'm sure they do. But something else may have been changed between the 2 commits. When I was trying current code, I was changing specular color in solarsys.ssc. The color of the oceans were the color I used. So somehow, by using a normalmap, the specular map was ignored and only the specular color w...

Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

OK, 8a894bfb fixed the problem, or worked around the problem completely. Looked normal. But 4ad277ed broke it again. The planet was visible but too much specular like above.

Celestia-e290322b1c04cbbc75c9c1f354a7081dd8dd57a3 That was the last commit that worked normally. The next commit described as Finish eigenization Celestia-85829063e0683e6de4c824f9f26121bc36f21536 was broken. Not what I was seeing above. It showed no earth. No png or dds files were loading.

Celestia-f48a72f9bc97d7e17da6ecd3952d0f9c9af36ed0
This builds and runs fine. Committed on Feb. 24 2018.Soon after this, and I'm not sure when exactly, normalmaps act strangely on my system. Gonna try and see what is the real cause but a lot has changed since then.

Re: Specular maps and Normalmaps together

The hardware list is in my signature. OS is Tumbleweed. I took the first image using the windows version 1.5.1 running on wine. That one looks right. The other was running the gtk version 1.6.1. But it looks same on qt5 running 1.7.0 beta. Current source. Open GL 3.0. If nobody else has this problem...

Specular maps and Normalmaps together

This problem goes back to version 1.5.1. If I use a normalmap on earth with a specularmap the color gets all messed up. As far as I can tell, sometime after version 1.5.1 and before 1.6.1 a feature was added to normalmaps to use specular highlights. This allowed spec maps for a normalmap. But it con...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I've been running my Linux builds all day. They all read the files from usr/local/share/celestia. Even the version I installed with yast. I'm not sure why. Only 1 build I did long ago reads from a second folder usr/local/share/Celestia-QT. That one was built with qmake. But mac runs on Darwin so its...

I ran into that error myself. But it always went away when I did that if 0 fix and rebuilt. On another note, I've been playing with my linux builds. I actually built version 1.6.1 today and noticed it reads the files from usr/local/share/celestia even though I never installed it. I've been running i...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

This is strange. Once installed, you should be able to edit as you choose. As long as the file permissions are correct. Do you have known file extensions visible? Can you see .app on all your Applications? Maybe after editing a hidden file extension is added like .txt making it unusable. Another thi...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

No,not line 13. Line 227. It should say ifdef TARGET_OS_MAC. Change to if 0. The reason, there are statements about domain and user, etc. That code may be adding paths. I had to change it cause Celestia couldn't find resource folder. Maybe yours is finding too many resource folders. The hidden files...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Do you have hidden files enabled? I come to find out many are hidden. Google show mac hidden files. It goes something like this, defaults write com.apple.finder ShowAllAppleFiles true, then killall Finder Hidden files should be visible. Then you may see whats going on. Actually, defaults write com.a...

Re: Improving the Celestia Wikibook

That error went away and I'm not sure why. It was replaced by error reading configuration file. What gets me is it finds the splash screen. I also tried a build on high sierra. That started with the Resource error. Until I tried to run 1.6.1. It wouldn't run because it said it was an unknown develop...

Re: Improving the Celestia Wikibook

I got no idea either. I just got mac runnig on a VM last week. All the files were installed in usr/local/share. But the macos folder in top Celestia must have something to do with it. Maybe a link to it is missing? A lot of apps get installed in the Applications folder. Im not sure if that is requir...
