Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Lightmap/Radiosity issue May 29, 2015 08:27 AM (Total replies: 3)

Thanks for the assistance once again Kirby. ;) You are the man!

I played around and it's definitely a build problem, not Sapien.

Like I said in my edit it worked when I used a different name. Now I know why! :D

Thing is though it didn't happen until yesterday and I've done this before without it screwing up the lighting. O.o Oh well I'm just happy it worked. :)

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Lightmap/Radiosity issue May 28, 2015 08:55 PM (Total replies: 3)

Hello all,

I've been making Halo CE mods for quite a while now.

This morning I came across the strangest issue. Whenever I try to run radiosity, the map looks like this when I compile using Tool:



It does not look like that in Sapien. I also went to a year-old backup of Halo CE and I still get this issue every time I run radiosity and compile a new map. (If I use the original lightmap that came with a scenario it works fine)

I believe this issue started this morning when I messed around with a bitmap and caused Sapien to crash. Ever since then, I haven't been able to get any map to look right.

I hope someone can help me with this. I seriously cannot figure it out! :'(

I already tried system restore and reverting to an old haloce installation from another HDD

Thanks, everyone!

Edit: I also noticed this error from Toolpro: Bitmaps: Tried to add item levels\test\sidewinder\sidewinder__pixels with different size (303616) than expected (422912)..done

I guess the bitmap compiler isn't working properly? The red and yellow dots look like the ones on any given lightmap. Maybe there's some kind of offset in the wrong place?

EDIT: I seem to have found a bypass for it. If you put the BSP under a different name and run radiosity again, it will create a new bitmap under a new name. Perhaps the default lightmaps aren't meant to be altered, thus generating the error mentioned in the above edit? Seriously though I've changed those lightmaps many times and I never had this issue before this morning, but at least there's a way around it. O.o I'm going to keep trying.

Yeah I agree, its too much work. Great idea tho.

Thats good because the plugin also captures textures, only problem is that they are small and the alphas are stored in a different bitmap so it takes a while to fix them all

you cant really extract. Only do what you just said, Origin.


Exactly, which is what poses a problem, the 3d "screenshot" also takes some characters and unwanted scenery that will lead to modeling and collision errors, you need to be a skilled modeler to be able to fix everything. And unfortunately, I am not a skilled modeler. :( and if you haven't done this sort of thing it could take a long time. It took almost a year to fix all the problems in Hyrule.

However, I will give you this link which will show you everything you need to know and everything you need to download.

Here it is, good luck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2yCUxl71AQ

It is possible to extract BSP from n64 roms using the 1964 emulator, theres a plugin i cant remember the name that takes a 3d "screenshot" of the area, you know that recent release, The Land of Hyrule, It was made using that, I was the one who extracted some of the models. Which by the way IS legal as long as its not for profit...i think but I'm pretty sure. I'll check back here once I find the name of the plugin.

this isnt easy to do. (when I use my extractor) it never comes out right, doors are missing and headlights are missing plus I get so much extra scenery like the driver and stuff. just wondering is that the problems you get too?

aaron's right. There's no call for that from any of us (but Advancebo should lighten up srsly)

How does turning a marker make you expert?


My god, nearly everything we say can be used against us with this guy...

Dude, did I ever use the term "expert" in that post?

Why are you always doing this? I just want to lend a hand to someone who just happens to have a spectacular idea and I'm not putting up with your crap

Plus, I don't just turn markers, i make them something awesome :P

BUT as awesome as the markers turned out, I don't think I'm close to being an expert HCE modder so just keep your mouth shut

I'm best at step five. But if you add a marker somewhere I can turn it into something cool like reverse lights or an exhaust. I do a lot of that special effects. They come to be usefull in movies :P

anyway, I'm good at doing the guerilla modding, speed, sound, functions, lights, making sure it doesnt fall on its side, adding seats, adding features.

If you would like to contact me personally, my xfire is k5origin

SWEET! Can't wait :D

if u need heelp, i can lend a hand. I can do anything except model and animate.

Halo CE General Discussion » Grand Theft Auto Vehicles Feb 2, 2009 02:30 PM (Total replies: 108)

boy I hope this doesnt count as bumping...

are you gonna add police vehicles? (make Q for the siren :P)

and another thing, I know where you can download new cars so that must mean we can even extract those too? Let me know if your interested.

And a suggestion for the doors, just do Tiamat's trick: driver door opens using occuped and unoccupied animations, passenger doors open with gunner seat power (even if theres no gun)

Don't worry. HMF is working on it. We're portalling it now so it plays music depending on where you go =D

Unfortunately we're getting some errors, I dont have much detail but I'll see what I can find out.

But latest word, we got someone who can fix them

I'm not quite sure, but I think the bitmaps are even smaller than 64. maybe even 32!!!

I would use the rom's bitmaps if i was in charge
