Hello everyone,
I'm learning lightmap..and I have already read this article which was suggested:
http://www.flipcode.com/archives/Light_Mapping_Theory_and_Implementation.shtml
also this:
http://www.flipcode.com/archives/Lightmaps_Static_Shadowmaps.shtml
There's many links broken,in addition to this,I found it helpless because there's no real code..I even don't know where to start,how to generate lightmap..
I also found that there's little tutorials about lightmap..which is useful
Could anyone tell me how to generate lightmap?or some links..I just need the souce code..thanks..

I used the first link you posted to build my lightmap generator. But I did it in Pascal, if you think you could use my Pascal code I can paste it for you.

So there are four possible, not exclusive problems:

0) You are not good enough at programming (yet)
1) You don't understand the articles (yet) or have not tried to hard enough
2) The articles are bad
3) You have not googled hard enough

Which option(s) would fit you the most?
