Any particular time of day?

From what I remember, I didn't experience any significant FPS loss when driving across.

I'm pretty sure that SilverRST tried a few things with his model of his car that he is converting to try and get around that Window bug.

 

Some people said it only happened in LS, and hardly ever @ night?

Yes, I have tried many things and y carmodel doesn't have standard GTA SA windows textures.

It uses its own glass texture and the windows is not attached to the chassis otherwise this will cause weird

bug as you can see engine stuff through the front window because the glass objects are placed above in the .dff.

And I also have to seperate the doors windows and place them under the doors in the hierarchy

 

I'll try more things when I have time, but I doubt it will work because the front window

have two materials: glass and black spec to act like a blact plastic holding the winow glass.

Only the glass materials disappears at certain angle.

 

EDIT

This bother me as why if I place the camera at certain angle the windows won't disappear

and it will not disappear if I keep moving the camera at that angle.

I took some screenshots:

 

7db2f6283358201.jpg

1a21ac283358203.jpg

b1151f283358207.jpg

 

Only if the camera is pointed to straight forward, window will disappear.

 

 

 

 

Yeah well I hope what he meant by "2DFX for buildings" will be a continuation of that mod by aftburner.

 

That's exactly what I mean .. placing more lampposts in the countryside .. its rather dark @ night, and I know IRL on the main roads in the countryside there are still quite a few lampposts to light up the road. Safety first !

 

Ah, the endless possibilities of GTA SA Modding.

You can do almost anything to GTA SA. I'm looking forward to placing some lampposts in the countryside.

But the lines of those placed lampposts have to be added the 2dfx txt files to have the distance working.

Ad i hope aftburner will continue the 2dfx building and stuff. some original buildings

absolutely looks like shiny poop.

Thanks for the new update especially the new limit adjuster! Will you be updating it adding new limits to adjust? Sorry for being off topic but is it possible to crack the map bounds limit for SA?

I have noticed something. One of my GTA SA game is heavily modded with the Snow Sa Andreas HQ 2011

and all the IPL/IDE seperated into its own IMG files like GTAIV.

You know what I'm talking about, Any city has its own img files and....no more windows disappearing bug!

I think when the game is organized into their own seperated img files, the game handles the files much better

than when loading them all from one img file: gta3.img.

i used the tool IMG Organizer by fastman92.

 

I have not used his tool for the normal game without the Snow San Adreas HQ 2011 but it can work.

Interesting. Does it fix all the alpha issues? Or is it only the windows?

I'm not sure because the trees are white lol. You know, snow mod :p

But I have not encountered windows bug, even when in cockpit view and aming the camera to LS,

the windows stays there.

 

 

I'll check again. I'll take the time to check them.

max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects is not adjustable anymore?

 

Values I tested (patch_generic=0, patch_all_normal=1)

 

0, Default = Runs fine.
100 = Crash before loading the game.
3000 = Random crashes in game.
10000 = Works fine, but it don't make any visual difference.

max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects is tied with the normal_new_draw_distance. The max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects simply tells how big the normal_new_draw_distance can be. So with the patch_generic=0:

normal_new_draw_distance =< max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects.

It's best to set both values the same.

 

When max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects is set to 0.0, the normal_new_draw_distance can only be 300, as 0.0 = 300.0. ThirteenAG said to not to touch it at all, because when you increase the normal_new_draw_distance above 300 (or 250) you get alpha bugs.

MrMateczko basically said it.

 

Although, max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects only increases the distance that regular objects can be. The original is 300, so if you're putting any settings for objects that aren't LOD's above 300, make sure you adjust max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects to be the same or higher then them.

Yes. I put both values the same now. Still, anything higher than defaults or makes the game crash or doesn't work at all.

lods_new_draw_distance = 2000.0 //if multiplier is set, this value will be ignored

Works fine for me. Try setting max_draw_distance_for_normal_objects to 3000 and then pick your settings for normal_new_draw_distance.

I don't know, since yesterday my game (or my computer) is acting strange, I will do a clean install to test it later.

 

EDIT - Fixed everything with memory2048.cs. I was using the 512 fix but it got corrupted.

Hopefully i'll sort out all know bugs in Vice City version tomorrow.

How's the performance in VC btw? I tested it today on another pc with integrated video and i don't like it at all. I think mod needs further optimization.

I haven't noticed any performance issues with VC, but optimizations and tweaks are always welcome. And like you said, yes, it's filled with bugs.

New version for VC, as promised: https://github.com/ThirteenAG/Project_2dfx_vc/releases

Notice there's no mapNodesLimit_vc.asi, so don't forget to delete it if you have v1.0.

Barely tested, so report everything.

There are far less alpha issues on this one (helicopter blades is the only thing I noticed). Still crashes without mvl.

 

EDIT: Crashes with mvl when flying too.

Probably because of increased draw distance. It's good to have increased limits for this.

I am already using your mvl settings, if that's what you mean.

is it possible to make the lamppost-corona texture overlay-ing over the objects?

 

i mean, you know, the default GTASA's corona using textures for fading out over the objects, not using objects for fading out the coronas. i'm sure all of you knows the Anamorphic Flare implemented on some Hollywood movies, the flare will fade out when the light-flare-object going to be covered.

 

i've found a cleo script made by JuniorDjjr, that replaces the headlight coronas with sunflare, and fading out when the headlight covered by the objects, yeah the headlight, not the headlight texture. here's the screen:

look, the headlight corona overlaying the objects (pedestrian). default GTASA corona doesn't overlay the object.

sorry my bad english, i hope you know what i means. :rol:

What happened?

I remember that this was a very hot topic.

 

Anyways,I wanted to ask,is it possible to add green and red 2dfx coronas for aircraft and make them flash?

 

What I mean is,that can the aircrafts' navigation lights be rendered from a greater distance like the coronas in this mod?

Thats because the SA version has a stable release, and it appears not many people play VC or III anymore and are willing to test and provide feedback.

 

But this mod is ALWAYS going in the MUST-HAVE pile for all/any of my SA installs.
