Summary0000050: Lightgem Changes Based On View Angle
DescriptionOriginal report by Gildoran:

I'm assuming this is not intentional, but I've noticed that the brightness of the lightgem changes based on my view angle. These two pictures were taken from the same spot; the only thing that was different was the direction I was looking.

(see threaded discussion)

I just wanted to comment that I believe the cause is that the color buffer isn't getting set to black before rendering the lightgem's view. The reason I suspect this is because the lower left corner of the screen seems to get added to the value of the lightgem.

Just for completeness, the reason for the lightgem variation was due to the rendershot being offset and thus taking a bit of the world into account.

This has been fixed by Greebo.

Waiting on closing this -- Komag is having some problems (new ones in fact) and we'll have to wait and see how/when that's settled.

The last holdout (Komag ;)) seems to have had his problem corrected with a driver update. So this looks good now. Any new problems can be tracked separately of course.
