View Full Version : Reflection issues
01-11-2008, 07:22 PM
Hey guys, a few of my friends have higher spec pc's than me, so play the game on higher settings. While my map looks fine to me, no visual issues, they talk about reflection problems, something to do with that purple checkered texture instead of reflection in blades, sniper scopes, etc. Can anyone help?

yes, you need to place env_cubemaps around the essential places around your map, than type in console: buildcubemaps.
That should do it ;)

right, just to clarify because I am unfortunately a little slow at the moment, ever so tired! Build brush-based entities around all the sections of the map called env_cubemaps, then compile, then go in-game, open up the map, and type in the console, buildcubemaps. Then I can pass around the bsp?
no no no, env_cubemap is a point based entity. place them around your map where the surroundings are significantly different to other areas at about head height. THEN load it in game and buildcubemaps (which then get saved into the .bsp for you to distribute)

This is instructions from RedFoxx...I added LDR instructions
Make sure your in dev mode, go to the console
start your map
reload the map
mat_hdr_level 0 (this should put the engine in LDR mode)
