Dark Moment

Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the fairest Tri of all?

Recommended Posts

Please see my comparison shots in the following thread and comment, if you'd be so kind. Are you all seeing chrome-style reflections on my Cathay and Dragonair paints? http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...id=214884&page=MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]

Mark,Yes - I have the highly polished chrome look on your latest repaints. My card is an nvidia Geforce 7800GT. They look great, but perhaps a tad unrealistic...

Sheeesh, what a nightmare. I have never heard of such differences between cards before. If that is what it is. The worst thing is, I can't even set it up properly for the likes of yourselves and others who see 'chrome' as I cannot see it myself on my GeForce4. What to do?Upgrade, I suppose. This is enough to put me off painting, though. I hate uploading unrealistic imagery, and for sure this chrome look is schoolboy stuff.MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]

Mark,I have PaintShop Pro v9 so if you want to send me one file I could try and alter the alpha channel and send you a screen shot of the results?

Thanks, Graeme. You can take an alpha from any of my Tristar downloads and give it a go if you wish. I can easily change all my alphas to the usual setting I'd use for bare metal, but my problem is I would not see any change here, I think.It's weird, only seems to happen with this aircraft. My DC-3 reflectivity (I've painted a few of those, as you may know) is seen by others the same way that I see it myself.MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]
