does putting in shadows make your frame rate slower?


It's my ILLUSION!

I think if your card is good enough it sets it on automatically.. I noticed a great change in my shadows since I got a new computer, and I never set it.

But if you notice, the Lightsaber does not cast a shadow.

This totally ruins the immersive value, who the heck thought that lgithsabers don't cast shadows


Without fear, there is no courage
Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make them all yourself.
This would be really funny if it weren't happening to me.
In the land of California, in the heat of San Jose the dark haired PSIONIC JEDI forged in secret a master computer to control all others and into this computer he poured his money, his computer parts and many screws
One computer to rule them all. One computer to find the foes
One computer to bring them all to hell and in the darkness conquer
In the online gaming world where the envying ones lie.

It didnt really slow the frame rate down, but i think the shadow is too dark and looks ugly, might be my video card though.

I hope you're kidding.

Lightsabers in JO do not cast shadows because they are a bunch of sprites, there is no 3D model to cast a shadow. A very, very easy solution is to make an invisible stick on the lightsaber hilt.

Actually, in every lightsaber scene in the movies, barring the saber battle in the dark in ep2, the sabers don't cast a shadow at all.

lightsabers do cast shadows, if there is a stronger lightsource in the near.

The lightsaber itself is a weak lightsource.

for example you see in the ROTJ Luke vs. Vader battle the shadow of vader's lightsaber when darth got up when knocked down the stairs when luke kicked him.
