View Full Version : Realtime DirectX mode bug in 5.1

06 June 2006, 12:58 PM
There is something wrong with Dx mode in viewports in XSI 5.1

After baking normalmap, I make DirectX preview material, and its ok, but in viewport XSI ignore all lights, and my object is lit from center of the scene, doesn't matter if headlight is on, or off, or if I move light around. It make Dx preview quite useless. Funniest thing is that in 5.0 everything is ok.

anybody used Dx mode in 5.1 without this problem?

I use GF6800GT video card.

Thanks in advance.

Still no difference. I've attached two pictures, it is the same object, same material, in both scenes I've deleted all lights, and headlight is turned on.

First object is in XSI 5.0, second in 5.1

Unfortunately there is no update for Foundation users :(

I'll try reinstalling after weekend, maybe that will help :(

Actually, as per the discussion on XSIBase, they're still working on the 5.11 Fnd update.
