Re: [B3.1][Stadium]Very Dark Shadows, even on classic TechTr

It simply means, that you need to redesign your maps according to the needs of the new engine and take the light/shadow calculations into account, when making a new map. true that, at least for future maps but that does not address my point: I was not talking about new tracks, i am not even talking...

Re: [B3.1][Stadium]Very Dark Shadows, even on classic TechTr

but more a practical "it didn't work on canyon and therefore I doubt there will be changes for stadium". I would really appreciate if there would be some changes... since you asked for different gfx setting in that other thread, here is one more argument to try to handle envis differently (although...

Re: [B3.1][Stadium] Tweaking of games "internal" files

Quick question, are you saying that TM²Canyon and TM²Stadium share same several hitting/crashing sounds ? No,no but some hits to the body of Canyon and TM²Stadium car sound much more alike and hollow/shallow than that of the TMNF Stadium Car. I don't know if i will manage, i have some fraps footage...

Re: Over the Hood View

Doing some more research I notice its already an option on local play/split-screen when you press 3, There has got to be a way to access through single player! right? http://i47.tinypic.com/2cgeu76.jpg in-game, Solo- and Multiplayer there is no hotkey for a hoodcam, there are only 1,2,3 and 7 on th...

Re: [B3.1][Stadium] Tweaking of games "internal" files

i assume it serves the integrity of Shootmania, if you could change sounds of footsteps (probably bad example, but if you could modify it on the client-side you could gain an advantage, at least in theory, as i said: probably bad example). In this post i asked if the abandoning of transparency in m...

[B3.1][Stadium]Very Dark Shadows, even on classic TechTrack

Several complaints about closed areas being too dark already have been articulated in the forum, for example here and here . But earlier today on a Server i experienced extrem dark spots even on a rather open classical Tech Track, i know the track by heart so i was able to drive it, but if it would ...

Re: [B3.1][Stadium] Transparent textures for modders

@fix: how challenging would it be to bring back transparency for more blocks (is it abandoned because of Shootmania - to prevent easy wall hacks/ invisible walls? Or mainly to make Maniaplanet leaner?) I am interested, because the creativity of the Trackmaniacs is one of the key elements of the fant...
