@X-Trade : you may maybe replace your sprites with billboards near of the camera ?
I'll try sprites on HDR shader to see if I can find a solution for that

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

Is there a way to make the UFO glass shader not be so low quality? I'd love to actually be able to see the other side of the object, IE making a fisheye lense effect that has good clarity.

Is it possible to use a per pixel lighting shader on a complex
object? e.g a whole level or a character.

I love the HDR shader. It really brings an environment to life.

Does anyone know how to make it less of a resource hog? It just kills my FPS. I'd love to use it though.


Come see the WIP!

You can lower the 2 last values but it must still a power of 2 (do it for all cameras).

This Shader pack is great, unfortunately I wasn't able to test all of it yet. However I do have one question. Is there a Normal Map Shader included that works with skinned meshes ? So far I only found Normal map shaders that work with static objects. At the moment I'm looking for one that would work with animated character models.

@Jack : theorically, yes...
@Irradic : theorically they should ...

I've seen that Evolved made news demo on his website so, I'll update USP with these new ones and will uploade a new version. It will be version 1.0 finale.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

Haven't tried all of them out, but the flashlight shader is nifty. The hdr shader suddenly only gets 10 fps (old version would get an easy 60), what's up with that?

An even better idea would be:

I tested them (well...a lot of them..), and they work great!

@Evolved

How about a sky system using shaders.Sun, clouds, lens flare, moon and what ever else. And a book or pfd file on how to create your own shaders.

Just a thought, but I'm sure I'm not the only one dreaming that. I love your work, i've tried to pick up on shader programming, but smoke started coming out of my ears,lol.

Thanks for those shaders, and of coarse any one else who has made a shader.

@freddix
I know I mention a sky system and you've got a plugin with a sky system, which I purchased and love. But I would just like to see a GPU only version.

@JulesD : I've DL many french tutorials on SHADERS coding but I didn't get enough free time to start learning.
I agree that a sky system using shader may be nice but ... will it be possible to develop one that handle day/night cycle ?
And, I also love Evolved work on shaders :p they're really great and we can't thanks him enough regarding to the amount of work he made !

I tried recently to use the water shader, on a large plain, with the extends sky system above. However i get some really crazy results, and im not too sure what i need to do to fix it. I have some shots below to show the issue:

@Evolved

I've tried your bumpmapping FX files from the Ultimate Shader Pack, but the reaction to the lights doesn't seem quite right when the object is moved. I think the following line



should be



or something like that, in a couple of places.

I've tried writing a bumpmapping shader to do much the same thing (using your ideas for multiple lights) with directional lights and some extra features, but it is much slower than yours. Not quite sure why (I do make a lot of use of vector normalisation which could be part of the problem). I've posted the code on the DBP board.

I can't get the cube mapping shader to work outside of the demo, can somebody explain which parts are essential?

It will only work with the cube0.dds file in the demo, any other image crashes the program when you try to load with texture type 2 for use with a cubemap.

Even when it is compiled and the cubemap is applied, it has no effect. I'm using a dbo model file, does this make a differece?

This bit screws up my main texture, and UV maps it at 1/5 scale...



Here's my code...



The last "TEXTURE OBJECT" line has no effect, whether it is included or not.

Yeah, I also have that problem. I can only use 1 of the 3 images supplied with the demo; everything else crashes the program.

Strange. I haven't tried the FX file outside the demo - but I was able to use a different cube map within the demo as follows:



The extra cube map was just any old cube map constructed using 6 arbitrary simple images. It worked fine.

Will see if I can get the FX file working outside the demo.

Edit: spelling typo.

2nd Edit: The attached file is a simple demo of what the "sky.fx" effect is doing (sorry about the size). Will try to get a simple demo of the other fx file later.

Here's a simple demo of the CubeMapping.fx file in action. Hope this and my previous post work OK. Let me know if you still need something explained.

Got it! The cubemap stage has to be stage 1, 0 being the base stage. I was specifying stage 2.

However, changing the UV tiling for the cubemap still changes the main texture too.

Good question. I only discovered how by accident a few days ago myself. There seems to be something lurking on my system called the DirectX Texture Tool (the shortcut is "CX90SDKUtilitiesDxTex.exe") which suggests I must have downloaded the DX9 SDK in a rare moment of enthusiasm. I found this tool by accidentally opening a ".dds" file before looking at the extension - and, hey presto, all my dreams were answered! The tool supports cube maps among others and they are very easy to make if you have six images handy.

Post if you need any more help on this.

Edit: Meant to include comment for BatVink as well: It is possible the problem you are having is related to some problems reported by CuCuMBer (I think) on the Bug Reports list. Have a look there. I think the order of the files is determined by the order they are declared in the shader - haven't checked this for cube maps though.

2nd edit: Oops - just noticed the interesting shortcut! However supper beckons so it'll have to stay as is.

True, but they help some of us learn how to write shaders and to find out what they are capable of.

Hints and demos of how to speed them up would be very helpful ...

(I've tried replacing a calculation with a lookup from a precalculated texture and this speeded up one of my shaders. But not enough to be very useful. Still working on it ...)

I somehow missed this Looking great. Is there a standard blend mapping shader in it? If we had one, we could do .x with lightmaps from CShop. I could apply the blending shader to the limbs
