Cel-shaded TMD Rendering Example (plus low-level GTE stuff)

Post by LameGuy64 » September 13th, 2015, 12:25 pm

Well... I somehow managed to achieve what was thought to be impossible to do on the PlayStation and that is cel-shading 8-):

Basically, what I did was using the resulting vertex colors after passing through light source calculation as texcoords which then maps to a texture of 3 color tones... Its essentially the same technique used in many games that utilized cel-shading before pixel shaders became dominant on graphics processors.

This example also demonstrates the use of low-level GTE macros as a faster alternative to RotTransPers3() and NormalColorCol3() which are essential to writing fast custom 3D graphics routines.
