MM2 Lights Research!

Postby The_Most_Wanted » Tue May 23, 2017 1:49 pm

Actually, I did some lights research on unused lights objects from MM1, and yes, they are working in MM2. I just found their addresses which tell them to work by replacing the old code with new one (the address of the object).

I'm gonna post a video later if they work in right place.

So, you found a way to use the HLIGHT and SIREN objects used in MM1, and not in MM2. Very nice work! :wink:
However, I find those headlights too much flat and ugly to see, but anyway, the using of its object can have some other interesting ways.

I agree with Franch about the headlights being too flat. :|
The sirens look like opaque coloured balls interesting. :scratchchin:

Awsome. :D I've been waiting for this for ages. Just one thing, can you make it an EXE and not a Trainer (I'm not sure that makes sence), what I mean is, at the archive there's a 3+ cops Trainer and here there's a light trainer(made by you), for some reason they don't work for me, :( but this EXE made by Diatosta works beautifully :)

That's impressive, very nice work. :) At this point, it's necessary to make a trainer that allows to manually toggle on an off the left and the right signal lights. Of course, the player car in use must have those objects, but this means that there's none for now...

The Signal Lights are fixed now and I was testing it by a trainer.

Here I was testing the SIREN objects.


EDIT:

This function is gonna be added to the lights trainer and the Hotkey will be "Enter" Key, I'm going to disable the default glowballs. The lights blending are fixed for both vehicles BTW!

The MM1 style siren lights look very good. ;)

Would be interesting have both the kinds always to work, so to use the MM1 style ones for additional flashing lights effects on the car body, keeping the MM2 style ones as normal lightbar glows.
To permanently hide the default MM2 style siren lights on a car is enough to assign to their objects a colored material with an RGB value of 1 for all the three colors.
What's really good to implement is the switching off of the only flashing lights having the siren sound still working, and you've succeeded to do this, but, it has to switch off also the flashing headlights.

Yeah I'm gonna mix between MM1 and MM2 styles.

Yep I can do this with HLIGHT function.

Maybe Carfan meant to get also that conic light beam projection. I never really liked that effect, it's ugly to see.
