View Full Version : Open GL lights?

02-12-2010, 06:15 AM
How can I change the maximum number of open gl lights from the default 8?

I have tried to change the number in the preferences file but it keeps defaulting back to 8.

Does anyone have any tricks/ tips as I saw a tutorial and the "tutor" was able to change the max number of lights to 35!!

In the OpenGL tab, you have to change the 'shading method' to 'GLSLShaders', then you can get the setting of the lights number to higher than 8. Be warned though, too many can overload LW, and the GLSL display is a lot slower than 'multitexture' mode.

Thanks Tobian.

I've had Lightwave crash on me when in GLSL shader mode; but it's always good to know how to change the light numbers anyway.

many thanks :)
