Unity help - Why aren't my normal maps working in web player?
« on: October 22, 2013, 04:11:36 PM »
I would ask this in the Unity forums but for trolls.

My build settings include forward rendering and DirectX11 and yet normals aren't showing up in the webplayer version. Please advise.

Hi,

 what do you mean "Trolls", I would definitly suggest you try the Unity Forum and Unity Answers as well.

 Personnaly, I have not experienced any issues with normal map ever. what happens if you publish to desktop or mobile, or nacl?

bye,

 Jean

The Unity forums... they're not so helpful.

If I publish to desktop, it's fine. I'll try with some other formats.

Hi,

You should try Unity Answers as well.

If you still have a problem with this, I would recommand you file a bug to Unity, they will definitly have a look.

On the Unity specs page it says that normal maps are supported in fwd rendering while elsewhere I've seen ppl claim that normal maps are only possible w/ deferred lighting (a pro feature).
