I need a shader pro

Hello hopefully whoever reading this is a shader pro, or someone who can help me.

textures/mymirror/mirror_mine
{
qer_editorimage textures/tests/qer_mirror.tga
surfaceparm forcefield
portal
q3map_nolightmap
{
map textures/tests/qer_mirror2b
blendFunc GL_ONE GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA
depthWrite
}
{

}
{
map textures/kejim/env_newfloor_kej
blendFunc GL_ONE GL_ONE
rgbGen const ( 0.60000 0.60000 0.60000 )
tcGen environment
}
}


That is a shader for a mirror, it works fine. What should I change to make the mirror a little bit lighter, its kinda dark.


All should know this...it's not the staff that makes you a noob, its how you use it.

Actually could you give me some links to some good shader tutorials. I want to learn about them.

Here's a tutorial. Also you need to take into account that many shader editors are severly limited by the assets they can easily access.

I thought you edit shaders in notepad...and are there any tutorials that pertain only to jk games?

That tutorial is as good as you'll get I think. You can edit shaders in notepad but it's slow and you can only use commands you know whereas with a specially written program the commands are all infront of you as check boxes.

Also you can find a set of tools with ShaderEd2 in it here. ShaderEd2 is the best shader editor for JA as it has least bugs and you just tick boxes as to what things you want the shader to do. Also you can preview your shader in ShaderEd2, whereas in Q3ASE there are so many bugs you can't really preview the shaders.

As for tutorials the tutorial I sent you to was for Quake 3 which uses a game engine that is almost the same as the JA one (JA engine is based on Q3 engine) and shaders for both are exactly the same.
