aap has MVL source and could theoretically backport dynamic shadows from that to skygfx. Perhaps even fixing car shadows along the way.

i dont think proper dynamic car shadows were coded for gta vc. sh*t maybe the dynamic ped shadows in cutscenes from the ps2 were going to be used only in one cutscene or another but they forgot to disable it or something

Cars can use same cutscene shadows, the problem is they don't rotate accordingly. That's why MVL only has shadow options for peds and planes. Couldn't find how it looks exactly, but found this instead lol

I'm not that interested in doing that actually. I'll let other people do it. The important thing is that all skygfx pipelines should now work correctly for shadow rendering.

Hmm, dynamic shadows doesn't fit in GTA III Era games, looks so weird and awkward. I prefer to leave the shadows in their original state.

Original shadows got their own nice atmosphere in III, VC and SA. But that's only my opinion.

The problem is that a lot of mods just do them extremely sharp when they should be incorporating blend and blur to help them fit in.

And with 'lots of mods', you mean like those super UHD carmods with 8K Ultra ENB with 32K dynamic shadows? :p

Those kind of mods surely helps a bit probably but then you got the geological world.

 

PS2 shadows for peds fits right in III Era. Or it could be me being stubborn and telling my grandkids "back in my day all we had to do was to follow the damn train" in superfast NFS Carbon converted cars :lol:

Of course!

just add the "xvehicleenv" texture to the model of the bike you want to modify using Zmodeler.

there is only one small error, and that is that the texture is not added correctly to the model, so that almost all the bikes are brown

 

Do you know anyone who can fix this error?

Correct. You either have to fix them yourself or use the xbox models. I actually thought about doing fixed PS2 vehicles for this, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Edited by The Hero

Can anybody help me please,I have installed the new SkyGfx 3.7 over my San Andreas with Reborn pack and now the shadows are showing up as blobs not the dynamic ones it normally has on very high settings.I've looked in the skygfx ini file tried disabling the stencil shadows and enabling and it's not working.Thank you(nevermind,managed to fix it).

Now the problem is that the fps tanks with them on ,don't know why ,it worked fine before.

no wonder it has bugs..

But it has been released publicly,check the OP.

Dynamic shadows tank fps in certain places regardless. Also dual pass rendering might add that extra strain on your system too much with the additional strain of dynamic shadows.

 

You can try disabling dual pass rendering of some objects in skygfx.ini to see if it helps maintain framerate, if so you'd need higher specs to keep performance steady.

That can't be. Show a screenshot of an xbox car without reflection.

In PS2 (Or at least in the port of Ps4) the firelight is reflected in the ground, this is not in PC Is there any solution?

The floating lights above the fire have shadows underneath them similar to lamp posts. Check 47:10 in the video after the molotov is thrown.

Here's one clipping through the bottom of a wall. It's not a corona.

I refer to the light that emits fire and illuminates the ground, in the PC you can only see the fire and lens flare above the flames, but the ground is not illuminated

I already try in many situations, day, night, afternoon, cloudy, rainy, clear and simply do not see that lighting on the floor

I don't think this was ever patched in SilentPatch. Sounds like something to do with the effects system and shadows. I don't know much about either of them.

Yes, I already have the latest Silentpatch installed, although maybe Silent knows something about this
