    Well. Chances are that wii will support bump mapping. It may not support NORMAL mapping or parallax mapping. Bump mapping is just a trick that makes the texture looks like its... bumpy. It does this basically by using the lights to emboss things.

    Normal mapping on the other hand looks really good. It truly looks like things stick out.

    The reason I think that wii will support bump mapping is that it is a fairly old technique used in tons of games. Iv'e never noticed, but I wouldn't be surprised if gamecube supported bump mapping.

    Bump MappingSmall... bumps[the one on the right obviously!])


    Steep Parallax Mapping: (notice how its nice and bumpy)


    And then there is Normal Mapping... insn't that just b-e-a-utifull:

    Yeah but replacement mapping is the best
    go to wikipedia for the info, if the wii does it really won't even matter about the graphical power. If it has a type of mapping than on a tv it look just as good as 360 and ps3. It will be less detailed but will look just as good...

    I doubt the Wii will support bump mapping just because of it's limited graphical power, but it would be awesome if Nintendo could somehow manage it.


    Got mah Wii: 2/24/08

    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life.

    And that is why I succeed.

    hey

    What is replacement mapping? is there such a thing? I can't find anything on it :\.

    Firstly, I'm guessing regular Bump Maps will be supported. I'm not sure about Normal Maps and/or Parallax Maps though.

    I'd forget about Displacement Maps, I thinks they require alot more power, and I've never heard of them being used in Real Time Rendering. You see Displacement Maps actually alter the geometry of an object, and Bump/Normal Mapping just alters how the light appears on an object. I should also mention that I think Parallax Mapping builds off Bump/Normal Mapping, and just alters/displaces the Texture Coordinates.

    So basically... Bump Maps add the illusion of depth in only 1 direction, Normal Maps add the illusion of depth in all 3 directions, and Parallax Maps are just a clever trick to add the illusion of even more depth .

    To learn more see... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bump_mapping, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_mapping and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallax_mapping.

    Finally, some may find this (http://www.beyondvirtual.com/smf/ind...ic=860.msg9237, page 10) thread intereseting, it has some nice examples of Normal Mapping. Please don't get confused between the HighRes Mesh, and the LowRes Mesh with Normal Map applied .
