jesp8000,
I think I found the problem ; it was due to a bad handling of the vertex buffer when there was too much meshes with an medium number of vertex (ie: the Seats in this case). Sometimes, it could work & some other times, it could fail... :sweat:
Could u try to install the latest patch & let me know if it solves your problem or not ..?

jesp8000,
there's a bug when closing the game with the patch you just got, so every time I get an error report... :sweat:
I just updated the patch so there's no bug anymore when exiting... :blackeye:

Hello Manu, I think I downloaded the new patch. I didnt experienced any bug that you are telling. Yeah, I think the problem solved now. Graphics shows the way it should be now. Here is the screenshot. I need to fix some parts of the stadium though including the textures and the characteristic of the wood. Good work Manu. :D

Hello Manu, can you spare to me where you got the properties of surface materials? I am missing some data for the wood to be place in the configuration file. I am searching the internet but found data that is not really the exact properties I am looking for. Guys, I will release my 3D court as soon as I finished it. I have to fixed some parts and can't do it now because of work schedules, so hopefully after a week or more, I can post the download URL plus the instructions on installing all the supporting files. My court(s) are mostly for fun but you are welcome to tweak it to your liking.

jesp8000,
the game engine doesn't take in account the material properties set in 3ds Max.

Now, all court textures share the same properties ; you can find the corresponding shader in "Pak01.Pak/Scripts/Tennis.Shader" , this one :
Code: Select all
CourtTex
{
   NoZWrite
   Specular 0.1
   SpecPower 4

   {
      map Data/Toto NoLoad
      AddressMode Clamp
//      rgbGen Fixed 0xFF0FCFCF
   }
}


If you want more specular effect, try this :
Code: Select all
CourtTex
{
   NoZWrite
   Specular 0.4
   SpecPower 16

   {
      map Data/Toto NoLoad
      AddressMode Clamp
//      rgbGen Fixed 0xFF0FCFCF
   }
}

Hello Manu,
Thanks for those properties info. Theres another one that I need to find and thats the physics of materials. Like this one: I just assume this one from some sources, but I know its not accurate. I wonder what sources you have for this. Is there any table for different materials?
[Physics] // wood
Friction = 0.4
Elasticity = 0.85
//Grass = 1
DeltaE = 0.01
MaxSkidAngleRatio= 0.3
SkidAngleRatioBase= 0.25
SkidSound = 2
SurfaceSpeed = 1.2

I have actually no real idea how reacts the wood court.
I'd guess it's a fast surface, likely close of the indoor synthetic or hard, but I may guess totally wrongly... :P

Did you find any video or testimony about it ?
