What upgrade do you think will fix this?
« on: September 23, 2019, 09:29:36 PM »
Hi,

Using BMax and miniB3D.

I've been using Krischans code as a reference and all was working well.

I create a round cube and texture the 6 faces. Problem is when I use BLUE it comes out more like CYAN. Red/Green work fine.

Graduated BLUE is a mess!

This was all on my Dell laptop which I intentionally keep off the internet. When I try on my code on my Desktop everything works as expected!

So my guess is that I need to do some software upgrades (Graphics drivers/ OpenGL) for my laptop. (My laptop is maybe 3 years old i7 cpu)

Any advice would be much appreciated, Jim.

If you disable the lights, does the effect still happen?

in blitz3d, there are different texture blend modes, which can make a texel using the exact same color, rendered in a different way.
also check the material / brush blendmode, and maybe some vertex colors were set to be different than 255,255,255 (default color)

JBR,

I'm puzzled.
The Graphics3D command setups a graphics mode.
In your instructions you use it like 1920/1.5 1080/1.5, 32, 0 which tells me to setup a graphics mode of 1920 and divide it by 1.5 which results in 1280, and the same for the 1080 option.
If that is the case, what is the purpose or advantage of setting up a graphics mode this way instead of using Graphics3D 1280, 560.
Prepare to be assimilated !  Resistance is futile!

Problem Solved. After a looooooong process my pc is now fully up to date with windows 10 and the code is working correctly.

Cheers, Jim.
