    That's why you bake the shadows like I did in the tutorials sadly, brawl bakes the ambient occlusion, cavity and Y light from what I can tell in their textures.

    hmm bummer... that sucks.. o well, at least the alpha layer can be its own texture if ppl choose to

    have fun with chrom's textures for ur next tut

    edit:
    found some data about shadow maps online.. and i can pretty much get its material data, and half of its shader data, but.. gotta have to study the shader more :p
    Quote
    Material node
     glGenTextures(1, &shadowMapTexture);
     glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, shadowMapTexture);
     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);
     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);
     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);

    Shader data
    //Enable shadow comparison
     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_COMPARE_MODE, GL_COMPARE_R_TO_TEXTURE);
     //Shadow comparison should be true (ie not in shadow) if r<=texture
     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_COMPARE_FUNC, GL_LEQUAL);
     //Shadow comparison should generate an INTENSITY result
     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_DEPTH_TEXTURE_MODE, GL_INTENSITY);
     glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24, shadowMapSize, shadowMapSize, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, NULL);

    That's probably because you have to split the channels first.

    Just got out of class but had to pack my main desktop (that has windows on it), gradient map tutorial hopefully coming soon-ish
    Edit: Re-writing the gradient map one, also doing a new one for better Smash 4 textures and what not.

    If someone had extensive knowledge on making clothing, I can easily see this being used as a amazing way to make some highly acurate cosplays

    Hey guys, it's been a long year for me with college, but whatever it's summer time!
    So, I've been trying out Blender and managed to get a really nice light setup that allows me to bake normals and speculars in a way that the Wii U would into a diffuse texture (jargon, woo!)

    These are the results I've gotten so far:

    Left is how Mario looks in Smash 4, Right are my results.
    This is StupidMarioFan1's model port (god I hope I got that name right)

    I've baked the normal maps and specular maps into the diffuse using Blender as you can see in the shirt, overall and shoes. I'm still working on figuring out how the skin works in Smash 4 and how to make the gloves look better, because there's either some normal or glaring issues I'm ignoring.

    I'd love to see how this looks on Dolphin or a Wii, I'm away from my main computer right now, so if anyone's willing to be my guinea pig, let me know. Afterwards, I'll release the setup and a small tutorial on how to bake and set up materials (note, I have as of yet not encountered hair like Shulk's nor metallic surfaces with this method).

    When you manage to figure everything out, I'd love to try it out for you.

    Got skin almost looking similar, but looking great regardless, it's really hacky and will require additional explanation. So more complexity added to this new method.... great.

    Edit: I've replaced all of the textures now, gloves look really good now! Cheesy
    here's a preview image:

    who's up for testing?

    Testing the method, the model, or both? I'm still up for it, regardless.
