mode details :
WME 1.8.10
shows up OK in Mview.
shows up as WHITE in both project manager and game when running in DX8 mode
Now we found out that it shows up correctly in game when moving to DX9

no persistent errors in the log file.

x file:
Material {
     0.800000;0.800000;0.800000;1.000000;;
     22.400000;
     0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;;
     0.000000;0.000000;0.000000;;

     TextureFilename {
      "Player.png";
     }

textures are all powers of 2.

i'll add that it doesn't show the black/red image missing, and that it loads without errors in WME Project manager.

Scripts, plugins, utilities, goodies / Re: Shader preview
« on: October 13, 2009, 02:40:45 AM »
i did the following - i changed the color of the edge to black, and the border width

float4 BorderColor = { 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1 };
float BorderWidth = 4.0;


i added these lines into trinity's .act3d

EFFECT
  {
    MATERIAL = "trinityskin3"
    EFFECT_FILE = "actors\trinity\outer_glow2.fx"
  }
 

and what i see are holes in the edge contour. (i can post a screenshot if you can't reproduce it yourself)
any ideas?

hey,
thanks for including the HLSL thing. I'll give it some more tryouts (i've had some failed attempts today), until i get an FX file that also does the Vertex shading and not only pixel shading.
i'll try and share some demo or .fx files.
i'm joining Oli in asking :
@cremen: Could you please share your pixel-light shader code? I'm very intesrested in how you did that edge

About profiling:
the two new functions are a great start! but i couldn't get them to give me any relevant info on why my game's performance is so slow:
1. for some reason, in pizza morgana project, the counters don't reset between calls to the disable/enable functions, making it hard to filter out the noise, that happens, for example at the beginning of the game.
2. i htink there's a bug if you call Disable for the first time before enable (this is what i added in my game.script in on "Keypress" event)
Code: [Select]
if (Keyboard.Key=="F")  {
Game.DisableScriptProfiling();
Game.EnableScriptProfiling();
}
3. statistics about the functions and methods would be GREATLY helpful.
4. on an unrelaed subject, i noticed the regular WME_DEMO_3D also have two constant running scripts and nothing green in the debugging console, and couldn't figure out what they are (maybe i should post this in my performance thread).

i just added some debug lines to see if it is the game_daemon, and no.

       Game.Msg("End " + Game.WindowsTime + " total " + (Game.WindowsTime  - this.StartTime)); 
   
   Sleep(20);
   this.StartTime = Game.WindowsTime;
   Game.Msg("Start " +Game.WindowsTime);

i get totals of 0-1 (sometimes 2)
for some reason the time displays is a huge negtive one, but that's probably before the INT has passed its half and its 2 complement

i just looked at the scripts in the debugged, NONE are green. There are two who are in a wait state, and those are the deamons, one for hints with Sleep (100)
and the game_Deamon.script with Sleep(20)
