First off, "Edit by thebolt: Keep the language civil", sorry, i just have a serious distaste for windows.

"what graphics hardware and drivers do you use"

I posted it in my first post but...
1) AMD64 3200 (1meg L2), 1 gig of 3200 ram, FX5900XT and the latest nvidia drivers (running in 32bit Gentoo 2005.1)
2) AMD64 3000 (512 L2), 512 megs of ram, ATI 9600 Pro 128meg (running 64bit - Suse 9.3)
3) AMD Athlon 2000XP, 512 megs of ram, FX5200 128 meg (Mandravia 2005 LE)

All my machines run Linux - Period! smiley


As for the map, what shader should i use??

And for the materials, so adding

<texture name="bricks1">
        <file>bricks.png</file>
</texture>

in additon to the texture already there would help?

Also, would it be better to use CS in 64bit using the ATI card or the 32bit machine with the FX5900XT?

Side note : with the parallax shader and the map above, i get 16FPS at 1600x1200 fullscreen - i guess it does take some power smiley

Ok, now i know there is something wrong. If i do "walktest -verbose stenciltest" on my Linux computer with the CVS version of Crystalspace i don't get any bumpmapping on the walls. It just looks like a normal texture. If i go to work and use the Windows machine (seriously, windows sucks) using the 0.98-r4 version of crystalspace, all the "tests" worked fine - stenciltest, r3dtest etc.

It appears i have something wrong with my Linux version. Should i go back to the Stable builld? I keep getting the error

" WARNING: could not load plugin 'crystalspace.graphics3d.shader.glcg' "

I don't know what's wrong but something didn't get built when i compiled the CVS version.

Any suggestions?

After messing around for while, i figured out what parallax does and i fixed the other world file to include only the right textures. However, the Bump/Normal mapping one is still not working.

CS-Normal Map :


It doesn't look like it's doing anything. But this time i know it's grabbing both the normal-png and the texture-png.

Here is the world file for the map above.

Ok, i am now at a lost. I have tried everything. All i wanted to do is start with a simple cube mesh and bump map it using the two textures i pasted above. But nothing seems to work. All i end up getting is a cube with no bump mapping at all. I also get this error :

" WARNING: could not load plugin 'crystalspace.graphics3d.shader.glcg' "

I thought it would be easy to create a cube and have bump mapping applied to it. Have i done something wrong or is that error above to blame?

Oh i know. It's all over the place. I tried doing the simple normal map stuff you posted above, but i still couldn't get it to work. So i opened up the parallaxtest and started to edit it for my textures.

As for the dds file, for some reason i thought i read in the the crystalspace manual that dds files were the format that i should use for textures. As for having the texture twice, the first normal texture should have been deleted. I have other examples where i followed it perfectly but still no bumpmap. What the hell is parallax and what exactly have i accomplished? I know it isn't a normal map - i think.

Hi, thank you very much for your help. I tried doing a couple things with the CVS version of crystalspace and i still can't get what you posted above to work - i know, it's me. But i did get something to work. Here is my world file with some pictures. I want crystalspace to look like the Blender pics.

Blender Pic Normal Mapped:


CrystalSpace Normal map Pic - i think, with world file:



Here is a link to the World file:
http://67.70.95.110/~switch/world

Here are the textures i wanted to use for normal mapping but i still can't get it to work.






The DDS file i used for my World file :


It's obvious i have no clue what i am doing but i think i am making progress.
Thanks for your help.

First off, I want to say hello. I'm not new to 3D design, just new to 3D graphical design. I have been a CAD designer for about 10 years now, working on anything from water treatment plants to rocket engines (liquid propellant). My point isn't to give you my life story, my point is in the subject - textures.

I have been trying in vain to get my Blender textures to have normal or bump mapping done in CS. I have scoured the net for about 2 weeks now trying everything and anything i could find. I did all the Blender to CS tutorials i could find and none of them (that i saw) related to making a simple cube (mesh) have bumpmapping or normalmapping done in CS. I'm at a lost. I even started just hand editing the world files by hand in Kate (Linux notepad). But i still can't even get a simple cube, with a 256x256 texture appear to have any texture mapping at all.

All the tutorials deal with UV mapping and that works fine for me. It's when i want to give my simple maps at least the look of a game from the year 2000, that i have constant problems. Any information on how i might achieve this would sincerely appreciated. A link to a how-to or a simple push in the right direction is all i need.


Here is what i am using :

Gentoo Linux, kernel 2.6.11-gentoo (32 BIT)
Amd64 3200 (1meg L2), 1gig of ram (running in 32bit)
Nvidia FX5900XT

Blender - 2.36
CS - 0.98
blend2cs - cvs - 0.2.4
Gimp - 2.2 with DDS import/export and Normal Mapping plugins
Varicad - 2005 - To export my CAD files

Again, thanks in advanced.
