hi :] I'm creating a 3D "engine" in OpenGL that's based on data from an existing game (KalOnline but that doesn't matter). I have encountered problems with adding multitextures, so I'll first explain what I have: I have 3 types of 'maps': 1. terrain map 257x257 2B - elevations, generates the terrain itself (no problems here) 2. color map 256x256 3B (RGB) - colors the vertices as I'm rendering the terrain 3. texture map 256x256 1B - here I have a problem. A single map sector contains the terrain map, the color map and 1-7 of these texture maps. This is probably used for adding more textures to 1 cell of the terrain. What is my problem: I looked in numerous tutorials and couldn't find how can you create a unique mixture of texures for every "cell" of the terrain... Because some places have grass+rocks, other places have only dirt, etc etc. I can only manage to bind multitextures outside of the rendering procedure (outside the for cycle)... so I would like to do something like this:
for (int y = 0; y < 256; y++ )						
	for (int x = 0; x < 256; x++)
          	// here I want to set up the 1-7 textures for multitexturing, based on the data from the texture maps (I believe the value is alpha)... but if I try it, it just doesn't work (only the last texture gets binded and only like a normal texture		
		for (int i = 0; i < map->texturesNum; i++)
			glPixelTransferf(GL_ALPHA_SCALE, (float)((float)(map->textureMaps->map[x][y])/255.0f));
			glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[map->textures-1]);				
			glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_RGB_SCALE_ARB, 2);				

		for (i = 0; i < map->texturesNum; i++)
			glMultiTexCoord2fARB(GL_TEXTURE0_ARB+i, 0.0, 0.0);		
        	glColor3b(texcolormap->map[x][y][0], texcolormap->map[x][y][1],     texcolormap->map[x][y][2]);
		glVertex3f(255-x, (float)surfacemap->map[x][y] * (float)scaleValue, y);

		for (i = 0; i < map->texturesNum; i++)
			glMultiTexCoord2fARB(GL_TEXTURE0_ARB+i, 0.0, 1.0);		
		glColor3b(texcolormap->map[x][y+1][0], texcolormap->map[x][y+1][1], texcolormap->map[x][y+1][2]);
		glVertex3f(255-x, (float)surfacemap->map[x][y+1] * (float)scaleValue, y+1);

		for (i = 0; i < map->texturesNum; i++)
			glMultiTexCoord2fARB(GL_TEXTURE0_ARB+i, 1.0, 1.0);		
		glColor3b(texcolormap->map[x+1][y+1][0], texcolormap->map[x+1][y+1][1], texcolormap->map[x+1][y+1][2]);
		glVertex3f(255-(x+1), (float)surfacemap->map[x+1][y+1] * (float)scaleValue, y+1);

		for (i = 0; i < map->texturesNum; i++)
			glMultiTexCoord2fARB(GL_TEXTURE0_ARB+i, 1.0, 0.0);		
		glColor3b(texcolormap->map[x+1][y][0], texcolormap->map[x+1][y][1], texcolormap->map[x+1][y][2]);
		glVertex3f(255-(x+1), (float)surfacemap->map[x+1][y] * (float)scaleValue, y);					


maybe it's a little mixed up and confusing, but I'm a lot confused atm ^^
