Android :: Normal Maps Vs Normal Coordinates

Jul 10, 2010

I'm currently working with OpenGL ES 1.1 and using the DrawElements convention along with Vertex, Normal, Texture Coordinate, and Index arrays.

I recently came across this while researching the idea of using Normal/Bump mapping which I previously though impossible with OpenGL ES:

I can generate an object-apace normal map already from my 3D modeler, but what I'm not completely clear on is whether or not the Normal coordinates array will be necessary any longer if implementing a 2nd texture unit for normal mapping, or will Lighting + Color Texture Combined with a Normal map via the DOT3_RGB option be all that is required?

EDIT - After researching DOT3 Lighting a bit further, I'm not sure if the answer given by ognian is correct. This page, [url] gives an example of it's usage and if you look at the "Rendering & Final Result" section bit of code, there is no normal array ClientState for Normal Arrays is never enabled.

I also found this post here,[url] which explains it well... but leads me to another question. In the comments, it's stated that instead of translation of normals, you translate light direction. I'm confused about this as if I have a game with a stationary wall... why would I move the light around just for one model? Hoping someone can give a good explanation of all of this...

Android :: How To Distinguish Between GV And Normal Calls?

Oct 16, 2010

Is there any way to have the phone show me if it's a GV call as opposed to a call to my cell number? My hope was to put my GV number on my resume and be able to tell if it was an employer calling. But so far, in my tests, I can't tell if the inbound number called my GV or my cell.

Android :: OpenGL Normal Mapping

Feb 9, 2009

Is it possible at this time to get normal mapping to work on android? I'm asking because it would involve the use of GL_DOT3_RGB, which is in the GL11 specs, not GL10. But GL11 is indicated as not completely supported.Is there an official list of GL11 features that do not work, or is it simply unstable and I should just avoid it for now?

Android : Can't Get Same Name On My Phone As My Normal Msn On Computer Has

Oct 6, 2010

I keep having this minor problem when usin msn talk on my galaxy s, nothing really big but anyhow. When I log in with my phone it changes my display name to something that I can change on my phone, but because I can't get any really special characters to work (well actually just one, D with a stroke) I can't get the same name on my phone as my normal msn on computer has. Okay well I could live with that, but when I log off from my phone it doesn't revert the change but it changes the display name on my computer's msn too! It gets really annoying to change my display name every single time I log in with my computer. And it does the exact same thing with my personal message. So the question is, can this be prevented in any way? ps: does anyone know how I can get that stock sms app to mark every sms as "read" when I've responded?

Android :: Use Camera API For Normal Quality Pictures

Nov 27, 2009

I'm using the default camera API of Android 1.6 like this:

Intent photoIntent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE); photoIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_OUTPUT, Uri.fromFile(new File (Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory(), "test.jpg"))); startActivityForResult(photoPickerIntent, 1);

But the image is saved on very low resolution 512 x 348. I added the QUALITY property but it doesn't make sence: photoPickerIntent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_VIDEO_QUALITY, 1); There are many more posts on the internet talking about this issue but there's no solution (jet). Is it solved on 2.0??? I realy need the high resolution image (3MP).

Dec 27, 2009

Whenever I receive and read an email though my phone's gmail application, it does not show up having been read in my online gmail inbox. But if I archive the message from my phone, it shows up having been archived from my online inbox. Is this normal?

Android :: Button Draws Normal State After Pressing

Mar 30, 2010

I'm new to Android and just starting the very basics. I implement my custom button skin using .9.png images for norma/focus/pressed states. It works fine, but I noticed that after a pressed the focussed button it visually "lost" focus and draws the normal state frame. I planned to use different state images to highloght what button is selected right now, but it seems that it would not work. I noticed also that the same happens with the default LAF button. Is it OK, or it's just emulator issue? What the good workaroud can be used?

Android :: Is It Normal To Play An Audio During Phone Call?

Mar 15, 2009

When you pick up the call and switch the screen to MediaPlayer to play an audio, it is able to be heard from handset (receiver). Thus, you can hear the far-end voice and your local music at the same time. Is it a normal behavior? Android seems not to have the mechanism to let Mediaplayer to remember its status (to keep music pause or mute?) in the phone call. Or this is a normal design for notification sounds, such as a call- waiting sound? Is it possible to have an secondary gain feature like windows mobile in the future?

Is there any way to emulate an android froyo with normal kernel and everything a normal android phone has? Including a market and recovery mode. I want this mainly because I feel terrified by the thought that I might brick my phone flashing a custom rom and I am a beginner so I never tried anything complicated with it. So before I try anything over my phone I want to try this on an emulated phone.

HTC EVO 4G :: Display Is Darker Than Normal

Jun 8, 2010

So last night my wife was looking at a picture off of a website on my phone, and accidentally hit the home button. This normally should not be a problem, but the display started acting up. The display is darker than normal, it flashes, and it has white lines that run the length of the screen. After playing with it a few minutes it goes back to normal. It is acting like it should right now, but it did this last night but started acting up again. I did a hard reset last night and it did not help. If it starts up again it is going back to wally world.

Android :: Need Droid Apps That Alter Normal Phone Operations

Feb 19, 2010

So i was wondering if its possible to for an application that i would write to be constantly running in the background and alter regular phone operations. For example this could be something like as soon as you receive a text from anyone you forward it automatically to another number. Is something like this at all possible? Just to be clear I don't want to solve that particular problem through some other means, just want to know if apps can accomplish that. Also if that is possible is it possible for an app that i write to alter more immediate and instant things, like an incoming call.

Just dialed my network operator to listen to how much credit i had on my phone, but when i tapped on 'end call' the phone did not end the call, eventually i had to switch the phone off. It happened a second time too but seems to be okay now.
