getting straight to the point:
are there any GUI-based tools with which I can create/edit the interaction.vfp?
I know one can use any text editor for this but I don't know a damn thing about shader programming and I also remember that there once was a GUI-based editor for the interaction.vfp of Doom 3 but I can't recall the program's name (Google didn't help). so if at least someone remembers that I would be really thankful...maybe it can be used to modify Quake 4's interaction.vfp too since it's based on the same engine
Yes, a GUI shaders editor specifically for IdTech4 exists and can be used for D3, Q4 and Prey with only one line manual variation on this last two, but i can't remember the name, i will search for it on Google, i remember that was made by a Germany developer.
ah finally a reply! and even someone who remembers it too
hope you have more luck with Google than myself. been going crazy over dozens of search terms and hundreds of result pages... :kerian:
I have searched in Google this...: "Doom 3 interaction tool" Doom 3 interaction tool - Buscar con Google
Try it !!!
One of this D3 shaders tools is called 3mood and is available here for example... (mmmhhh, it seems that is only available for NVidia gfx cards owners, but i think that can be adapted to both ATI & NVdiai with very easy !)
Forums about this...:
Seems interesting, eh, tell me what do you thing, i will start testing this tool now... :D
Nice looking interface GUI, eh !!! :D
Another interesting Interaction.vfp editor tool !!! Description: Quak4 is a small tuning program for Quake 4 compatible with NVIDIA GeForce 7800, 6800 and 5900 series cards. With Quak4 it is possible to tune Quake 4's vertex and fragment programs by e.g. enhancing image quality and performance.
- Performance Options e.g. FP16 and NRM ALU Operations
- Image Quality Options e.g. Specular and Offset Mapping
- Easy GUI and Config Profiles e.g. Profiles for different cardsgment programs by e.g. enhancing image quality and performance.
See this official mod pages for both Quak4 and 3mood...:
