View Full Version : Need sky shader help

04-20-2002, 12:59 AM
Alright I extracted the shader files from the jk2 pak files, and entered them into shaderlist.txt. Even then, the jk2 sky shaders didn't show. So I put this into skies.shader:

qer_editorimage textures/skies/yavin_up.jpg
surfaceparm sky
surfaceparm noimpact
surfaceparm nomarks
surfaceparm metalsteps
skyParms textures/skies/yavin 512 -

After that it showed up in Q3Radiant as a shader. The others show, just not as shaders. So I apply the shader to the roof, then when I compile I get this:

Loading map file C:/QUAKE3/baseq3/maps/tower.map

entering C:/QUAKE3/baseq3/maps/tower.map

************ ERROR ************

Its only when the shader is applied that I get this error. I'm just totally lost here. This is the first map I've ever made, for any game. The map itself is coming along fine and I know there's no problems with the map, its just the jk2 shaders I can't get working :confused: So what do ya know?

Well if you've noticed all the files in the shaders are listed as tga though almost all are actually jpg, so in the shader file change yavin_up.jpg to yavin_up.tga.
