View Full Version : ShaderHandler??

Hi There Folks,

I've been looking at some models from the internet (Babylon 5 stuff actually), which I believe were made in LW 6/6.5.

When loading them they look for the plug In "ShaderHandler" and the type "SS_Metal" amongst others.

I am running LW 7.5 on a PC. Do I have this plug in tucked away somewhere within 7.5 or is it called something else now? If I do have it, can I convert the old ones to the new...?

Thanks People,

Hmmm, Not sure about that one Kevin.....
I have many shaders, it sound vaguely familiar.

It could be an old 5.x shader, but i can't remember it....
It's likely a 3rd party or free Metal shader someone has written.

But i don't believe, you have it tucked away..... :(

If the scene won't load because of it,
edit the scenefile and remove the shader.

if you need a similar shader, try the Shades project from Marvin Landis there is a free metal shader in that.

Iy is a legacy shader from 5. I'm not sure but it may be in the legacy plugins folder. Have a look. Gradients basically made it obsolete.

Thanks Guys! The scene actually still loads and I can add my own, just wasn't sure what I was missing... I only started with LW from V7.

...and thanks for the link Freak, always good to see new stuff coming along!
