Fill Spectre v3.1

Post by Pixel Eater »

An experimental shader for the Spectre demon. Makes things "shiny".

While Apeirogon kindly works hard to transform the way Fill Spectre detects it's sprites, I thought I'd do a slight update to the old model. It should look much neater around the edges, with less to no chances for purple to show through (depending on your graphical settings).

Oh shiiiiiiiiiitttt it's that "Predator stealth suit" effect! I've been wanting to see it in Doom ever since Doom came out! :DDDDD

EDIT: that's a very clever hack (fullscreen post processing with a chroma keying-style "purplescreen"). I wonder if the same technique can be used to approximate screen space reflections (for water planes).

Tip: you can use "beforebloom" instead of "scene" in your GLDEFS to get rid of the magenta glow that happens when users have bloom turned on.

(Be sure it's all lower case, "BeforeBloom" won't work)

I was literally thinking exactly the same thing. How robust a hack is it for us non-coders?

I was thinking water could benefit somehow. I did the testing using Cyan but switched to Magenta last second, so I know you could run a second effect on that colour.

Ah- I thought I'd read of another option but couldn't find it again. I didn't think to try it with bloom! w:oops:

Thanks, Tormentor :D

Just checked this shader today, did a brief stream on Facebook for lulz... I will use it somewhere, this could have great uses for special modding and eyecandy stuff. Thanks a lot Pixel Eater!

Ok version 1.1 is up. Adding 'beforebloom' has solved a lot of glitches, thanks Nash!
I've been strapped to Photoslop for most of the day and made assets for all of what I think anyone should ever need to make a stealth suit mod :)
That means the blur sphere, player sprites (including crouched), HUD weapons and even projectiles if you want them. I could go the extra mile with the muzzle flashes but I'm spent. It's all in the .zip as seperately loadable .pk3 files if you want to preview what the mod could look like. Thanks folks!

Sorry Bauul, I'm not sure what you mean? I can explain how to create the image files necessary...

The problem with this technique is that you can see the original (grey) sprite inside the affected area. Is there any way to fix this?

With the right settings I have removed it completely from the HUD weapons but it is necessary for it to work. Lowering the actor's alpha can help too as long as you don't go too low and the shader loses track.
