Shaders

Ok, what are they? What are they for? How do you make one? How do you use one? Will they help with light-emitting textures? Questions questions questions, answers please

They are text files.

They change the way textures are displayed.

Notepad is a good option.

You direct the shader to the texture you want, then put the shader in the shaders folder. This makes more sense when you understand how shaders work, which takes some practice.

They don't help with light-emitting textures, they create light emitting textures.

Now I gather you're going to have some more specific questions, now that I answered the basics, so fire away.

Thanks!

So, how does someone know what to write in order to create certain effects? Is there some website or something that has each individual effect written out, or if you learn how to make a shader are the rest kinda self-explanatory?

Look in the core-files of GtkRadiant (C:\Program Files\GtkRadiant-1.# or something by default), there you will see another folder called "Q3AShader_Manual". Open it, and execute index.html within it.
