I'm having trouble with running the Neo carpipe both in VC & III. Everything else seems to be working fine except the car reflections.

Could there be something wrong with my config or is there something more that I'm missing? The config file does mention that a d3d9 is required for neo, but I've no experience with that so I don't really know what to do. If it helps, I'm on Win10.

 

I'm a dummy, missed a semicolon in front of the carpipe. Cheers!

you need a d3d8 to d3d9 wrapper. d3d8to9 should be included as d3d8.dll in the archive.

Is there a way to keep the red mission marker without it turning pink while using the PS2 colour filter? Searched through the pages but I couldn't find a definitive answer.

It has nothing to do with the colour filter. The marker gets the building pipe on PS2 but not on PC. if you're using default PC models i don't think it should turn pink at all.

You could also use the PS2 models for these as they'll properly adjust colour unlike the PC version.

Of course it was my fault 😅

I already had the PS2 version of the cylinder and diamond dffs which made the textures appear pink/light yellow. I also had a transparency issue with those markers caused by an 'improved' ingame.txd from a "Map Fixes" pack.

Getting rid of all of those and using the vanilla PC ones fixed everything. Thanks for your help!

After a while of testing, I no longer experienced this crash. I believe it has been fixed, thanks.

Looks like some buildings with uv animation didn't have matrices for the animation. Dunno if that is a bug or something, but they won't be animated now.

Looks like this model's extra colours/alphas are messed up. These are the ones that the game actually uses for transparency with the building pipeline but on PC they don't really work well with d3d9 RW so you don't notice the bug. The PS2 game actually uses the default pipeline on this object so it should render correctly. The solution is of course to delete the extra colour chunk with RW analyze.

At what exactly should I be looking at? This is regarding the invisible/transparent vault door in the Caligula's mission btw.

As I'm not familiar with the YCbCr color model, I'd like to know how to adjust the gamma, without changing the "disableGamma=1" value. Is it possible?

This occurs with the grassFixPlacement in the .ini enabled. Any possible solutions for the bad placement? (other than disabling the fix)

Apologies if it was already addressed before.

Isn't this just the brightness? So probably, I should do some kind of transformation of the gamma correction to the YCbCr model eh?

Hello!

Is this a common transparency behavior? Seems to be the same across all ini configs.

Turning PS2 shadows on and radiosity off gives fps boost on integrated gpus, at least it did to me when I had to play SA with SkyGfx on laptop.

SkyGfx is a very nice looking mod, but some settings are heavy for low end systems. I'd suggest moving away from it if those FPS get pretty low. Or enable only a colorfilter or something like that.

but i think that the shadows give me lag, i dunno what is stencilshadows because my english is not so good

SkyGFX uses shaders for some things, normally this isn't an issue for the majority of GPU's out there, even low end ones, even something like a GTX1030 would be able to handle all of what SkyGFX offers with ease. You'll always face problems when you're using a shared internal GPU unless you have an absolute beast of a CPU to offset things, but even then a dedicated GPU is always best.

The stencil shadows aren't really worth it in SA, just very poorly implemented. Could also try disabling dual pass rendering for some things if framerate is a real issue.
