Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Draw Material Simple is too dark


in my game I want to show a mugshot of a NPC for a few seconds in the top left corner of the screen. Therefore I created a SceneCaptureComponent2D and set the TextureTarget to a TextureRenderTarget2D. Then I created a material using this texture with the these settings:

as you can see, it looks fine but when I draw it using the HDU class and DrawMaterialSimple it get's really dark. When I put the material on a box it also looks okay:

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Furthermore, when using DrawMaterial instead of DrawMaterialSimple the box in the upper left corner is completly black.

This worked for me.

Instead of drawing the Material, draw the Texture. But you maybe have to click on the little arrow and set Translucent to Opaque

This solution worked for me. Thank you so much! To the original poster you probably haven't filled all the fields in correctly for DrawMaterial. uwidth and uheight should be 1.0
