Open GL dynamic light size and intensity?

Post by Xahn519 »

Hello.

In recent GZDoom versions these options seem to be missing. How does one change them at this point?

They were removed intentionally.

I suppose that makes sense. I used to use fog effects to have thick dark fog and crank up the dynamic lights with a flashlight mod.

Thanks for the reply.

How do you define users?

1. What alternative would you suggest when making maps and wanting go past 255 in brightness?
2. Could the Open GL Lights intensity be configured using ACS or Z-Script?
3. Is GZdoom compatible with custom GLSL shaders or similar "add ons"?

He means what it says. It makes no sense for it to be an option for anyone using the software. It makes more sense as a mapping option, since mappers will design their maps expecting specific levels of intensity, and not a user option, since a user will just have to manually change it according to the current map to make it look right.

Ok fair but it seems to me that Overbright Dynamic Lights are not yet possible and even if the GL Light itself was brighter then the engine would still clamp or limit the output

Yes, but that's an entirely different issue.
