I own a geforce 4 ti4200 and i can get bumpmapping if i turn T&L off !It decreases performance a lot but it is a nice effect.Is there anyone who get bumpmapping with T&L enabled on a ti4200.I use the 44.67 drivers.Eddy

I have had no luck getting Bump-mapping to work either with ATI 9500 Pro vid card. I can see the old animations with terrain set to both land and water (which sets the water detail slider to middle). But if I crank the water detail slider to max (which moves the terrain detail slider to Land only) I just get a blurry water texture, no bump-mapping :(

Hi, You have it, I saw the bump in the water, only wait the sun to get lower in the sky, increase/reduce the time little, to see the reflection on the water, because now in your screenshots there is no water reflection, or change the angle of the spot view.TRY the this fs2004, Situation Moderne: scenic wonder, hong kong dusk, you will saw it already.ThanksChris Willis[link:fsw.simflight.com/FSWMenuFsSim.html]Clouds And Addons For MsFs
