it's disappointing that after you watch the ad, the video doesnt load :(
and i am sorry to say , i havent been able to find another video hosting website which i can connect to, such as youtube , vimeo...
even file sharing sites(except those in China) dont work here.
just forget about it for now.

i recorded a video to showcase one of the aircrafts - a modified EC135 helicopter. the graphics are rendered with JPCT-AE engine.
beware, before the video starts there may be advertisements.

here is a work in progress model as example of specular light

about the outcome of this setting, i did some test on powerVR 6250 gpu and could see the difference it makes.
in some cases, the specular looks quite nice. i use 50 setting and metal does look like metal on my simulated aircrafts, especially in moving images.

i dont think it is very important either.
but, since full support of material is not easy to do, IF changing specPow is much easier, then it can let the users have more options without too much trouble.
changing specpow ( without other elements of material ) still has some use, such as seperating glass (sharper reflection) and plastic.
if a user have one more option, he will think of more ideas.
i agree that a developer should put efforts on essential elements and neglect unimportant elements, though.

so why not  have a Object3D.setSpecPow() method ?
then each object can have different specpow.

Support / about maxLights in Config
« on: February 13, 2019, 02:28:30 pm »
i wonder , can maxLights be non power of two, like 33 ?
and can maxLights be different for different Worlds ? some Worlds don't need many lights but some other do.
does it affect performance or memory usage much ? if it doesn't affect much , i would just set it to a large number.

i think of Config.specPow , can specPow be variable at runtime ?

there is no problem on mali gpu , so should be the problem of powervr gpu

i tried disabling depth write before drawing the shadows(the mesh holding the texture) , the result is better - from most angles they are correct, still from some angles , wrong.
without that fix , from most angles shadows are wrong.

i suspect that when a transparent object is rendered, depth buffer writing is enabled with powervr gpu, which shouldn't be done.

Support / is there such a thing as single channel texture in vram?
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:57:21 am »
i think all textures have 3 or 4 color channels. but sometimes a texture has no color , only greyscale info is needed.
if the texture in vram is stored as single channel, then it occupies 1/4 of memory. isn't it great?

another question, can RTT texture be ETC compressed in vram?

i roughly calculate the size of squares, it is most likely 32.
