If you look behind it...


...you can see that it actually has a face
Lol, I never noticed it So many bugs I didn't know the existence.

I'm working on it but I haven't discovered how bump mapping and normals are stored inside map files yet, so there might be some issues after the rotation (but I hope not).

OMG this is amazing! With what version of the game are you making these adjustments. I remember SLAYER's Ultimate Patch, which combined all of the best versions of the level geometry files. Are you using that? It would save a lot of work.

I know of quite a lot of more flipped surfaces. It would be so awesome if you could fix them all!!

These fixes definitely deserve their own thread. Please make one!

I knew about these faults. Especially Nr. 1.


1. Gate is invisible (I looked behind the gate and it looks like it's not a flipped surface, but perhaps it also has transparancy enabled?)
2. White textured part of the building


These textures are supposed to be there:


3. Weirdly textured rainpipe.


I don't know if you can fix them, but maybe you can look at these?

Yes I did, and the fixes are working!

Here are a few more flipped/transparant surface faults in the game with SLAYER'S ULTIMATE GRAPHICS PATCH already added:

Also user 'vorob' discovered some and made screens of them:

If nakamichi would post instructions, or maybe a video detailing his basic work flow for flipping a texture, I'm sure others can join the bug hunt.

Trying to keep a look out for more inverted textures while I'm playing through the game but I think SLAYER's patch has most texture errors covered already

I'm working on Slayer's GMXs.
1) There are no poly at all, that's why it's invisible Maybe I could add them but it would also require adding new vertices (because of the different UV mapping from the rest of the gate). It's possible but it takes time. I'm not considering fixing it soon.
2) Really odd, needs more investigation but not now.
3) As soon as I confirm my suspects on UV coordinates it'll be easily fixable

Ghetto has some flipped polygons (easy to fix) and some missing polygons (like the ones on the church). The latter are harder, like the gate mentioned before.
I've not checked all this bug yet but I think 50% of them could be fixed in 3-4 days. 100% of them with 2-3 weeks (maybe ).

Sorry if I made some mistakes, I'm not used with this kind of file structure representation.

This is part 1, I'll add more things on map files in the next days.
With appropriate tools it'll be possible to export meshes, change and put them back within two seconds.
