Hello!

I have a problem with normals. They look slightly different in two different programs (game and editor). A picture to illustrate:

The game normals produce a slightly more round shape while the editor has the result I am looking for. I have been looking through my code searching for the cause of the inconsistency but can't find it. I am 99% certain that the normal and light positions have the same values:

I have tried glEnable(GL_NORMALIZE) and glLightModeli(GL_LIGHT_MODEL_LOCAL_VIEWER, GL_FALSE) (and true). Are there any other functions that I might have overlooked that can produce these differences?

Thanks for reading!

Well, it wasn't the normals or the lighting that was the problem. I had optimized the geometry in the game so the edges where lying differently. Problem solved :)
