Deferred Rendering

22 February 2012 - 01:59 PM

So I'm having quite a bit of problem while converting my deferred rendering code (well, not mine exactly, I used Catalin Zima's tutorial) from XNA 4 to SlimDX's D3D9.

I can post the shader files here too, but there's about 4 of them, so that's only if somebody wants me to, so as not to clutter the place.I basically copied them from the XNA example, and it being HLSL I didn't have to change it at all, since it's exactly the same both in XNA and SlimDX. It worked in XNA, so it should work here.

I'm getting this with the code above:

So the question is: what am I doing wrong and how do I fix it?

I'm using the Express edition of VS, so debugging this is quite difficult. I tried using PIX, but I'm not very experienced with it (or D3D) and it didn't really return anything too useful.

I'm using OpenLayer, but my problem lies within OpenGL blenders.
Light.BlitTransformed(x, y, 600, 600, 50, 50, 0.0, Tinted(Rgba(1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0)), 1.0);
Light.BlitTransformed(200, 200, 200, 200, 50, 50, 0.0, Tinted(Rgba(0.5, 1.0, 0.5, 1.0)), 1.0);
	Bmp->Blit(SCREEN_W/2, SCREEN_H/2, 1.0);

As you can see, the "character" is fully lit, while there is no "light" nearby. Is there any specific blender combination that would make the bitmap fade when outside a light source's range?

[AllegroGL] allegro_gl_flip() error

05 July 2006 - 03:14 AM

allegro_gl_flip() just doesn't work for me (it generates a standard Windows XP error). I have Allegro 4.20 and AllegroGL 0.4.0 RC4. Whenever I comment it out, I get a new taskbar item, but no window appears anyway. allegro_gl_flip() crashes every time, be it a window or fullscreen.

[OpenLayer] Dynamic lighting & shadows

02 July 2006 - 10:55 PM

I was successful in creating a flashlight-like effect in Allegro using _getpixel(), but how could something like this be done using OpenLayer? I've created a cone-shaped Poly, but I can't use either GetPixel or GetMemoryBitmap because my FPS drops down to 0. Any ideas? My allegro version of the program (it's a test, and the code is butt ugly, or even worse, and there are memory leaks everywhere... but it's a test) is here: http://cursedtyrant.freshsite.pl/lighttest.rar
