View Full Version : Lighting?

05-12-2002, 11:18 PM
I'm new to mapping, and I'm having a problem getting my test room lit up. I was using bubba's arena tutorials for this. I put the light entities near the ceiling and set them at 500 each, but when I test it, it's just pitch black. Anyone tell me what I'm missing? Thanks

Is it a high ceiling? If it's too high on up there, you might just not be able to see it. :D

Try putting a light next to the floor (make sure it's within the room in all 3 XYZ views) and see if that works.

Nope, didn't help. I've got lights all over the place, floor, halfway up and ceiling, and still pitch black :(. As I said I was new to this. I'm more of a player than a mapper. But I wanted to get my feet wet. Is there a better walkthrough to basic mapping?

what bsp type are you using??

I'm using full vis. Also, when I load up my skies, in the loading box at the bottom, it says "texture not found for shader". Anyone got an idea what I'm missing?

I even bumped the lighting up to 3000 and it's still pitch black, anyone at all have any insight to what im missing?
