What is this?
GraphicsLib is a mod package containing numerous graphical improvements, including a variety of effects plugins, a dynamic lighting engine, and a screen-space distortion shader.  This library can also be used by other modders to implement unique shaders and make use of the built-in lighting, distortion, and post-processing APIs.

How to Use
For players: Just download and enable the mod.  You don't have to do anything else; it works right out of the box.  If your computer can't handle GraphicsLib, follow the Mod Troubleshooting Guide (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=10931).

For modders: If you want to incorporate GraphicsLib into your mod, you should follow this setup procedure:
Spoiler
Use the following mod detection code in your ModPlugin class.  If you want to make calls to GraphicsLib functions or use GraphicsLib objects, you must first check to see that hasGraphicsLib is true before calling/referencing them!  Note that some scenarios may make this arrangement difficult, requiring GraphicsLib for resolving class links.  Note that "shaderLib" is intentional here; the mod ID has remained the same to ensure backwards-compatibility.
Code: java
public static boolean hasGraphicsLib;

@Override
public void onApplicationLoad() {
    hasGraphicsLib = Global.getSettings().getModManager().isModEnabled("shaderLib");

    if (hasGraphicsLib) {
        ShaderLib.init();
        LightData.readLightDataCSV("data/lights/your_light_data.csv");
        TextureData.readTextureDataCSV("data/lights/your_texture_data.csv");
    }
}

Material Map: This texture determines the reflectivity of the sprite.  Internally, the lighting engine uses a minimum function (i.e. reflectivity = the darker of the pixel on screen and the corresponding pixel on the material map), so there are limitations on what you can do with a material map.  In general, you want to begin with the original ship sprite and then darken areas that should not reflect as much light.  You can also darken individual color channels to allow interesting effects like having reflected shines being a different color than the hull.  Remember that the material map must have an alpha channel that matches the original sprite's alpha channel.  For implementation, see the example in GraphicsLib.  If a sprite lacks a material map, the default is the original sprite (i.e. identical to previous lighting versions).

Normal Map: This texture is difficult to make properly, but the results can be well worth it.  There are many tutorials for making normal maps elsewhere on the Internet, if you are interested in making them for vanilla sprites or your own ships.  However, if you want an easy way out, an adequate normal map can be generated automatically through Photoshop, Crazy Bump, or similar programs, which takes far less time than making a normal map from the ground up.  Remember that the normal map must have an alpha channel that matches the original sprite's alpha channel.  For implementation, see the example in GraphicsLib.  If a sprite lacks a normal map, the lighting engine will default to using the old lighting model for that sprite rather than the new Blinn-Phong model.

Surface Map: This texture is completely optional (even more so than the other two).  Surface maps enhance the normal map of the object by influencing how the specularity looks.  The red channel corresponds to luminosity and will cause the ship to appear to glow wherever the red channel is nonzero.  The green channel determines the specular intensity of the object; a value of zero is totally matte while a high value will be very shiny.  The blue channel determines specular hardness, so a value of zero is cartoonishly shiny while a high value is very glossy; a value of 0.2 (or 51 on the integer scale) corresponds to the default behavior.  Remember that the surface map must have an alpha channel that matches the original sprite's alpha channel.  If a sprite lacks a surface map, the lighting engine will substitute red = 0, green = (derived from material map), blue = 0.2.

Warnings
You generally need a card made in 2008 or later to have a reasonable expectation of supporting GraphicsLib.  Performance may vary, but a GTX 460 or better should be sufficient to run without any performance hit on the default settings, and with settings tweaks virtually any compatible card will work fine.  Mobile and integrated chipset drivers are known to have problems with GraphicsLib.  If you are using an integrated graphics chipset, disable distortions and post-processing!

Change Log
Version 1.6.1 (January 5, 2022):
- Fixed arc attenuation for distortion effects
- Updated for Starsector 0.95.1a RC6

Version 1.6.0 (December 12, 2021):
- Updated for Starsector 0.95.1a

Version 1.5.1 (March 30, 2021):
- Made sun-generated lights less extreme when multiple stars are in system
- Insignia icons are scaled to the new range of officer levels
  * Tier 1: Level 1-2 (freshly hired officers)
  * Tier 2: Level 3-4
  * Tier 3: Level 5-6 (max for trainable/mercenary/NPC officers)
  * Tier 4: Level 7+ (max for procgen officers, NPC commanders, and AI or unique officers)
- Added "aaCompatMode" to GRAPHICS_OPTIONS.ini
  * Prevents GraphicsLib from crashing out at the start if you have antialiasing enabled
  * Disables the second pass of the post processing shader
  * You'll have antialiased sharpness in the campaign and the combat interface, but the actual in-battle ships/weapons/effects will be as blurry as if you weren't using antialiasing

Version 1.5.0 (March 29, 2021):
- Updated for Starsector 0.95a
- Now works with screen scaling
  * Mod-added custom shaders will almost certainly need modification to work with screen scaling
- DOES NOT WORK with antialiasing
  * GraphicsLib will crash out with a message asking you to either disable shaders OR disable antialiasing
  * This is not a temporary measure; going forward, GraphicsLib and antialiasing don't mix
  * 4K monitor users should use 200% screen scaling (antialiasing off)
    - 5K users should use 200% scaling and 4K resolution, fullscreen-upscaled to native monitor resolution (You won't lose that much quality)
  * 1080p monitor users should use 100% screen scaling (antialiasing off)
  * 1440p monitor users potentially have a tough choice
    - 100% scaling will work if the monitor is large enough (or if you have glasses)
    - Upscaling 1080p to fullscreen native resolution might look passable (depending on your monitor and video driver) but you'll definitely lose some quality
    - Otherwise, consider disabling shaders if you can't read the text
    - I personally use a 1440p monitor and can play fine at 100% scaling, but your mileage may vary
- Added shader maps for new vanilla content
- Added lights definitions for new vanilla content
- Ship explosions no longer create cinematic anamorphic flares

Version 1.4.5 (March 10, 2021):
- Slot cover normal map fix
- Fixed compile error with one of the normal map shaders on certain Radeon drivers

Version 1.4.4 (December 25, 2020):
- Possible surface map transparency fix?
- Fixed version file HTTPS redirect
- Overload EMP colors now match the default overlay (or any special overload colors that might be scripted in)
  * Added "useVentColorsForOverloadArcs" option for old behavior

Version 1.4.3 (September 28, 2020):
- Fixed the Benchmark progress indicator
- Fixed normal map scaling when flipped
- Migrated version file to custom host (sigh)

Version 1.4.2 (July 8, 2020):
- Added global function suppressEffects() to ShipDestructionEffects to suppress spawning effects for a particular ship
- Migrated version file to BitBucket

Version 1.4.1 (September 8, 2019):
- Render order fix for layered modules

Version 1.4.0 (May 17, 2019):
- Updated for Starsector 0.9.1a
- Added shader maps for new Starsector 0.9.1a sprites
- Support for alternative ship textures

- Minor fix for automatic distortion fade-out logic
- Render order update

Version 1.3.1 (February 15, 2019):
- Fixed lighting for plasma burn system
- Rendering order fix for lighting

Version 1.3.0 (November 17, 2018):
- Added a bunch of shader maps for new/updated Starsector 0.9a sprites
- Updated lighting settings where applicable for new/updated Starsector 0.9a content
- Fixed rendering order for station modules
- Added lighting support for mine explosions
- Works in Starsector 0.9a

Version 1.2.1 (June 10, 2017)
- Improved various effects for certain edge cases with sprites that are significantly smaller than the collision radius

Version 1.2.0 (June 4, 2017)
- Now works on Starsector 0.8.1a
- Additional LazyLib check
- Fixed some misc. bugs that nobody noticed
- Tweaked ship destruction effects for ship pieces to avoid fx spam
- Updated even more sprites

Version 1.1.0 (April 23, 2017)

It's essentially ShaderLib plus some more plugins.

I'm posting this here as I cannot anymore on the shaderlib page: I have an issue.
I use this mod(shaderlib) as I use starsector plus, but I simply couldn't figure out why my game always crashed on start up until I noticed that shader lib was not on my mods list, so I checked the mods folder for starsector, and indeed it is there, I also re-installed the mod, but that hasn't fixed the issue, anyone have any idea as to why a mod wouldn't be displayed in the launcher?

If you have both the old ShderLib and the new GraphicsLib mod in the 'Mods' folder, GraphicsLib will be prioritise by the system over ShaderLib, thus, you'll only see ZZGraphicsLib. Remove GraphicsLib from the folder to ensure the system pick ShaderLib.

Other Mac user here - you probably don't have a utility that opens .7z files. I recommend this one (http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/apps/unarchiver.html) - worked just fine for precisely this file.

Sorry if this has already been answered but some faction mods require shaderlib and on the mod index it states [0.7.2a] ShaderLib by Dark.Revenant (outdated, use GraphicsLib instead unless you're still running Starsector+)

So I have graphicslib installed do all mods that need shaderlib now need to say use graphicslib?


Thanks

GraphicsLib is the new successor of ShaderLib. All mods that previously used ShaderLib should still be compatible with GraphicsLib (due to the intentional backwards compatibility Dark.Revenant has kindly included) or has made adjustments to fit (if any).

The description on the main page that says "Requires ShaderLib" is not wrong, but it isn't right either. Why those requirements hasn't been updated? Well, you know what I'm implying. (No offence intended, please don't blow my ship up!)

Thanks I am definitely not trying to point out anyone's fault I just want to make sure I am doing it correctly.  To me they looked like two separate mods with nothing to do with each other.  The train is gone and its out of sight is how late I got to the party :)

It is actually ok to say it requires ShaderLib, since this is what it used to require. As soon though as you click to download ShaderLib, you see on the top of the page with red big font;

Quote
NOTICE: This mod is outdated! Click HERE (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=10982) for GraphicsLib.

For better or worse, since it changed "name", mods that have not updated for a while their description, will have ShaderLib as a requirement. This is why Dark.Revenant made sure to point out first thing how it is outdated.

PS: I would ask to make sure too. I always prefer to be safe than sorry >.> (Not to mention I actually had them both loaded the same time, until thankfully it was pointed out to me)

Tryed replacing it w/ shaderlib (latest release on the shaderlib page) and that seems to have worked, I'll use that instead for the time being.

That's particularly bizarre.  Did the mod unpack correctly?  That error seems to me like Graphics.jar doesn't exist.

Also, you should be using Java 1.7 for Starsector if possible (the "jre" folder in the Starsector main directory).

DarkRevenant, I've run across an issue that you might want to see. Somehow, the colors using your mod are all out of whack in the UI, as well as in certain suns and a slight effect on the nebular clouds and ships with blues in them. Also, the colors seem to revert to normal during the quicksave process (while the game is processing). This is a recent change, and it was working correctly before.

GRAPHICS_OPTIONS - Disable Shaders - Fail
GRAPHICS_OPTIONS - Enable 64Bit buffer - Fail
GRAPHICS_OPTIONS - Disable Lights - Fail
GRAPHICS_OPTIONS - Disable Bloom - Fail

The only thing I can think of that has changed since I started using this mod was a nvidia driver update to 375.63 for my GTX1060 , but I'm not sure how they'd be tied together. I've tried tweaking the color settings in control panel, to to avail.

I filed a ticket with Nvidia about the broken post processing. Hopefully they actually fix it one of these days.

The issue exists in the newest 376.09 driver version from November 28th as well.

I won't hold my breath over it because I don't want to die.

Does playing without post processing have a significant impact on the image quality?

If it does I'll just revert to an older driver until I burn out on Starsector again for a while, lol.

Thanks!

Post Processing is not used in most situations, and can be disabled without image quality loss.

Thanks for the reply. I figured it wouldn't be that big of a deal. This will let me stick w/ the current driver and enjoy the performance benefits in any new games I decide to play while not flying among the stars.

Also, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for ALL the incredible work you've done with your various Starsector mods. I couldn't imagine playing without them. Thank you!

if the issue comes from your card just not being good enough, as Kitsune suggests, you can try disabling some of the more resource-demanding features individually in \Starsector\mods\GraphicsLib\GRAPHICS_OPTIONS.ini and see if you can get it to work that way. or you can even disable all of GraphicsLib's features entirely by setting "enableShaders": in that file to false, which allows you to keep the mod enabled in the launcher (for other mods that may require it enabled) without it affecting your game in any way.

Anyway we could get dynamic shadows based on light sources (beam weapons, explosions)? I've seen a few games like StarSector do that and they look amazing.

Post by: Dark.Revenant on January 23, 2017, 09:48:27 AM
Starsector sprites are 2d and have no height information.  The normal maps are slapdash as they are, being largely auto-generated, but a height map that would hold up to inspection is simply not possible.

Hi! I started using this mod, then recently it (I'm pretty sure it's this one, did some experimenting) started doing this:
(http://imageshack.com/a/img923/8884/awYH6t.png)
The game is using the not-integrated GPU, and the driver is up to date. I don't know what that's called, so couldn't really search for it, so sorry, if this has been solved already.
Anyway, thanks for the help in advance :)

You can disable GraphicsLib in the SETTINGS.INI file. Set "enableShaders" to false and that will stop those graphics bugs.
It seems to me like the game is still using the integrated card but I have no idea on how to force SS to use it... Sorry

For the R (specularity) channel on the surface map, does the value of R influence the amount of "glow"?
Title: Re: [0.7.2a] GraphicsLib 1.0.3
Post by: Dark.Revenant on March 21, 2017, 07:33:07 AM
R isn't specularity, it's emissiveness.  Largely unneeded given that the game is fully emmissive by default.
Title: Re: [0.7.2a] GraphicsLib 1.0.3
Post by: Swizzlewizzle on March 21, 2017, 09:05:03 PM
Still, setting a R value greater than 1 for any pixels will give a nice glow effect in-game under graphicsLib?
Title: Re: [0.7.2a] GraphicsLib 1.0.3
Post by: Dark.Revenant on March 22, 2017, 01:29:18 AM
A high R value will add to the brightness, yes.  An R value of 255 on a pixel normally 255,0,0 will appear fully red with some bloom around it because of its true color value being 510 or something.

Going to agree with Dri. That looks like you're either using an out-of-date version of Starsector or a whole bunch of mods that are not compatible with the current version. What mods do you have active?

(I will just go ahead and say that the current GraphicsLib works perfectly on my end with the current version of Starsector, so that's unlikely to be the problem)

I am usually running over 30 mods (8-9 GB memory footprint) at time and I can confirm that graphicslib is the cause of my crashes when saving and save copy doesn't help and has the same results. Every time the crash occurs at saving stage 2.

So the only way, this thing does not crash my game with all the mods enabled, is when shaders are set to false. Unfortunately there is no way to not use this enhancement, as many mods have it listed as requirement.

I would like to know if the author can, or is even willing to do something about it. I really like this lib, but unfortunately the only way to run it safely, is to run it deactivated.

Nothing can be done about it by Dark Revenant, it isn't a problem of GraphicsLib or other mods... It is too many mods in general / for your system specifications. Keep disabling GfxLib in its config as you been doing, or disable some other mods.

On a side note, what are your system specs and RAM allocation in the vparams file? You are likely running out of VRAM, also I hope you realize 30 mods is a *massive* amount and I would be curious to know what they are. As that many mods, regardless of your computer is approaching the point of craziness.

System RAM should be OK, I have 16GB and vparams are -Xms10G -Xmx10G -Xss1024k, but it seems like I am running out of GPU RAM. I have GeForce GTX 1050Ti 4GB. I can't believe Starsector with a few mods is more intensive than modern 3D games.

Don't spec 10gb of ram, do 8gb. 30 mods is quite a bit more than "a few", it is a metric *** ton! Yes, Windows + other programs + SS + that many mods will blow right through 4gb of VRAM. SS isn't more intensive than modern 3d games, but SS with *30* mods will eat more RAM and VRAM than many but not all "modern games".

And yes, please say your mod list please :)

So, your problem is that you don't have enough RAM *left over* for the graphics assets.  The way VRAM works is, for most drivers, the texture assets are resident in both system RAM and video RAM.  If you're forcefully allocating 10 GB of system RAM for starsector, that leaves just 6 GB for the operating system and all other components, including the graphics driver.

As a result, you probably have less than your stated 4 GB of usable VRAM... in a manner of speaking.  The way it really works is quite a bit more complicated than that, but not really in the scope of a post here.

Thanks guys for explaining things. My Current modlist here https://pastebin.com/CdssRnuV
Mind you, I am on Starsector 0.8, so mods are 0.8 too. I am not going to upgrade anytime soon as I am happy with my mods as they are. The only thing bothering me is GraphisLib, but since I turned it off, I had not even one crash. I am forcing 10GB for the game, because there were crashes when allocating less memory in the past. Mods are final, I am not going to add more, so it's OK for me.

0.9 is quite a lot more optimized and uses far less RAM in general.  When you change over, you won’t need new hardware to run it.

Do you realise Luddic Enchancement mod is for 0.9?
As you're using 0.8 (not even 0.8.1?) you shouldn't use mods that aren't for that version.
I see Arsenal Expansion version you have is outdated too (last version for 0.8.1a was 1.4.12a).
I assume other mods may be outdated too.
Version Checker is a must.

Starsector 0.9 update also has vastly optimised RAM usage, allowing player to allocate less RAM and use a lot of mods without problems, which could remove problems you currently have.
Also, do not allocate more than 8GB to Starsector in vmparams file, could cause problems with stability too.

Dear Avanitia, yes I do realize that, as some of us are able to use a notepad and csv editor to change a few lines to make it work flawlessly in any version if you know what you are doing. That is not the point. As mentioned before, my problem is many mods and low memory and not the mods itself.

As to answer your question: yes. I tried my monitor's resolution without fullscreen checked (I figured that would be borderless windowed) but the same thing happened. Running the game on windowed at lower resolution though caused no issue

Updated for the current version of Starsector.  Importantly, this fixes most of the remaining lighting and distortion visual artifacts, making use of new 0.9.1a features!  No longer will lighting render above particles!  No longer will distortions bend the UI itself!

A bunch of mod-support features were added for II.  Also, breaks backwards-compatibility with mods that implement custom shaders.  Sorry!

Hi, i'm having troubles installing this mod
It seems like I can't extract the files from the .7z file even though I could do so with a ton of other mods.

The virtual player keeps ejecting the iso from it when it comes to the files into the "shaders" folder, and I don't know why. This is really annoying since most of the mods require this one to run properly. Could you add a .rar file to dl ? It may work properly this way.

Thanks for the help and have a nice day !

DAEMON Tools is for creating virtual CD drives (e.g. from .iso files); don't use it for something like .7z.

Post by: Wispborne on February 13, 2020, 07:59:58 PM
I would like to be able to use some of this, especially the DistortionShader, on the campaign map, rather than only in the combat engine. I have two main questions.

- Is that a non-starter? I've been programming in Java/Kotlin for 6-7 years, but have never worked with lower-level graphics engine stuff, nor OpenGL. From poking around DistortionShader, it seems like it only uses the CombatEngine as a way to store the list of Distortion objects. If that list were extracted out, could this (especially drawDistortion) work on the campaign layer, or am I missing something?

- Say I did fork GraphicsLib and got this working with an API and Javadocs up to standards. Would a PR be considered? I see in the license that if I did do this work, I wouldn't be allowed to include it with my own mod, as that would be distributing a derivation (to say nothing of the issues of having two different GraphicsLib jars, ha)


My goal is to be able to create some sort of cool effect for when a player uses a gate in Gates Awakened. Not feeling up to learning OpenGL for this, I turned to MagicLib and GraphicsLib, but found that they are both in-combat-only.
Title: Re: [0.9.1a] GraphicsLib 1.4.1
Post by: Dark.Revenant on February 13, 2020, 08:30:50 PM
There is no rendering hook for the campaign map.  It would technically be possible to render overtop of everything (including the interface) and grab the screen buffer as a shader input, but it wouldn't be particularly good-looking.

If you plan on it, you'll essentially need to write a completely new framework, and I definitely wouldn't be able to support a pull request that warped the UI on the campaign map.
Title: Re: [0.9.1a] GraphicsLib 1.4.1
Post by: Wispborne on February 13, 2020, 08:55:22 PM
Non-starter, then, unless I reallllly wanted to sink the time into trying the method you suggested, which I don't.
Console commands uses OpenGL to draw directly to the screen; this is the "render overtop of everything" you mentioned, I assume, and sounds like the only option.

Thanks for the quick answer!

Post by: Dark.Revenant on February 13, 2020, 10:12:17 PM
You might have luck with object layers in the campaign map; I looked into it some time ago and found that you might get *partial* success that way.  Still, it's definitely something you'd need to prototype before going all-in.

Honestly, it's not very likely [that I'll add a render hook for the campaign (engine?)]. I'm not saying I won't ever do it, but it doesn't seem like the sort of thing I want to go messing with just now. Also: something similar may already be possible via a custom campaign entity, set to CampaignEngineLayers.TERRAIN_10 or .ABOVE. You'd effectively be able to render right under the UI since IIRC nothing uses TERRAIN_10.

Just posting this here for future reference.

Upon utilizing the splitShip() call, the ShaderLib will generate a bright flash of light that is predetermined. If called several times in something like a delayed post-death explosion script, it will create a giant hot white blob that obscures the ship. An option to bypass this would be appreciated greatly!

I'm digging around trying to figure out how to start adding a gravitational lens effect (https://youtu.be/-MD211AQp40?t=16).  I've found some actual shader language code/example that does it: 
https://unionassets.com/blog/the-effect-of-the-gravitational-lens-195

But I'm not quite sure how to import that to GraphicsLib.  I'm more than a little out of my depth when it comes to graphics programming, so I could be very wrong about this shader example even being relevant. 

Any thoughts on where to start to get this (or something like this) working?

Thanks!

You have to set GraphicsLib to compability mode. After installing graphicslib to mods folder, open GraphicsLib folder, there's a file called "GRAPHICS_OPTIONS" - open it with a Notepad or Notepad++. When you have it open, look at the first line you can edit:
"enableShaders":true,
Set it to false. You won't get pretty effects, but mods that require GraphicsLib to function will work without issues. And your game won't crash, assuming you won't get too many mods for your laptop.

-Terraforming and station construction

TASC does not have a direct serious impact on performance, although having many markets in one system close to each other may have unwanted consequences. In other words, if you have a planet, three astropolises and siphon/mining station on the screen at the same time, and each of them have a high command (And you probably need to have HC on every market if you wish to survive in Nex) that spawns numerous large fleets, that will definitely decrease FPS even on powerful computers.

It does not mean "do not use it", rather "use with cautious".

P.S. And that is for RAM allocation (https://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=8726.0). Off course, if I pick a correct topic.  :)

first of all, very impressed by GraphicsLib!

I'm trying to add a subtle gloss based ambient specular term.* For that I need a view vector with a bit of perspective, so I was trying to use normalize(vec3(gl_TexCoord[0].xy * 2.0 - 1.0, 1.0)), but gl_TexCoord[0].xy appears to not be mapped to 0-1 range relative to the screen? I eyeballed it to about normalize(vec3((gl_TexCoord[0].xy * 2.0 - vec2(1.0 / vec2(1.6, 1.4))), 1.0)), while running at native windows res of 3480x2160 at 150% ui scaling, which means I need to run the game at 2560x1440 - a fact I think might be related? Can you point me in the direction of the bigger picture I'm missing here?

* I went for this one, https://github.com/codekuangben/Resource/blob/master/Book/2017-02-19/Render/s2013_pbs_black_ops_2_slides_v2.pdf, that being early PBR, wasn't too exotic for the old school style. For ambient light I went for a hard coded dark desaturated indigo blue. On that note, would it be possible to pipe the backgrounds images in? I'd like to try and do a hemispherical warped reflection sample.

Display.getPixelScaleFactor() might be a factor for some users in certain situations, and in addition you should consider the fact that the backing texture representing the screen is a power-of-two-sized texture.  A game ran at 2560x1440 needs a 4096x2048 texture behind it, which gives you the ratio (1.6, 1.4222...).  The best solution is to render at an offset and ignore the unseen data.  I hope this helps!

I think I'm having a problem with the normal maps feature, in that they don't seem to apply at all.

They used to work, but as I usually take around 1 year breaks from the game (and update to latest game/mods version as I pick up again), so I'm not exactly sure when it broke. All I know it worked around a year ago, but currently doesn't.

I do have several other mods loaded, but I also tried with only lazylib, magiclib and graphicslib loaded but it didn't help. I've increased my vparams mem settings to around 6 gigabytes, my pc has 16 gigs installed. I also tried with 8 gigs vparams settings, no help. I have 8 gigs of VRAM in my gfx card (Radeon 5700), so should be enough (last year I had a vega 56 which had 6 gigs and that worked). Latest drivers and windows updates installed.

Checking the starsector.log I can see that the game finds and loads the textures, but all lighting effects look flat. Definitely not how I remember them being when normal maps worked.

Anyone have any idea what's causing this?

Tips on which ones and to what values?

By default it seems all surface maps, material maps and normal maps are being used.

PS. Where could I download older versions of GraphicsLib for testing purposes? Like versions 1.4.0 and/or 1.3.0.

Leave a slot blank, and it'll have a cover over it in battle.

Can you upload your GRAPHICS_OPTIONS.ini (Starsector/mods/GraphicsLib/GRAPHICS_OPTIONS.ini)?  Normal maps aren't really the sort of thing that can just "not work".  If the shader fails, generally that means you see nothing (black screen) or get corruption.

Also, please delete starsector.log (Starsector/starsector-core/starsector.log), then start the game, close out from the game, and then grab the new starsector.log and upload here (zip it up if it's too big).

Uploaded my graphics_options.ini (renamed to .txt because of forum attachment restrictions).

Can't upload log as it's too big even when zipped (400KB), but I did find this right at the end of the log, seems relevant:

I'm trying to download the mod but both the main link and mirror seem to not work properly. Firefox just tells me it's unable to connect.

Oddly enough Chrome says the same thing about the main link, but the mirror works.

so I guess not really a problem, more of a heads up to anyone else, try a different browser.

Hello all, recently started trying out mods and I am a bit confused to not see GraphicsLib in the Enable Mods menu when I start up the game. Ive got it in my mods folder but im not sure it's working correctly. I am having a few issues but im not sure they are coming from this or not. Any help is appreciated and TY in advance.


Seems I fixed it with more digging. I did not have the proper program to unzip this type of file. Thanks for all the time and effort on the mods!

Change Log
Version 1.5.0:
- Updated for Starsector 0.95a
- Now works with screen scaling
  * Mod-added custom shaders will almost certainly need modification to work with screen scaling
- DOES NOT WORK with antialiasing
  * GraphicsLib will crash out with a message asking you to either disable shaders OR disable antialiasing
  * This is not a temporary measure; going forward, GraphicsLib and antialiasing don't mix
  * 4K monitor users should use 200% screen scaling (antialiasing off)
    - 5K users should use 200% scaling and 4K resolution, fullscreen-upscaled to native monitor resolution (You won't lose that much quality)
  * 1080p monitor users should use 100% screen scaling (antialiasing off)
  * 1440p monitor users potentially have a tough choice
    - 100% scaling will work if the monitor is large enough (or if you have glasses)
    - Upscaling 1080p to fullscreen native resolution might look passable (depending on your monitor and video driver) but you'll definitely lose some quality
    - Otherwise, consider disabling shaders if you can't read the text
    - I personally use a 1440p monitor and can play fine at 100% scaling, but your mileage may vary
- Added shader maps for new vanilla content
- Added lights definitions for new vanilla content
- Ship explosions no longer create cinematic anamorphic flares

Looks like maybe a conflict with Lightshow or Tartiflette's Torchships And Deadly Armaments but there's so much to unpack there. Not sure if it matters but I have a RTX2060 Super with the latest Geforce drivers.

I can confirm, that disabling TADA will stop the CTD :(

Can confirm, loading the game with lazylib, magiclib and graphicslib works fine, add TADA to the mix and instant crash.

Title: [0.95a] GraphicsLib 1.5.1
Post by: Dark.Revenant on March 30, 2021, 04:31:26 AM
Compromises ahoy!

(http://i.imgur.com/vPv4Tfp.gif) (https://bitbucket.org/DarkRevenant/graphicslib/downloads/GraphicsLib_1.5.1.7z)

Download GraphicsLib 1.5.1 (https://bitbucket.org/DarkRevenant/graphicslib/downloads/GraphicsLib_1.5.1.7z)
Also known as ShaderLib.
Download Mirror (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sTdV9PpkRN6wDvOHr7HYgkiISExkQBW0/view?usp=sharing)
(Requires LazyLib 2.6 (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=5444.0))

Edit GRAPHICS_OPTIONS.ini to enable or disable GraphicsLib features!



We also recommend Version Checker (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=8181) to notify you when an update is ready.

Warning: Make sure Starsector is GPU-Accelerated!
Mobile or integrated chipsets are known to have serious graphical artifacts!

Warning: Antialiasing is mostly not supported when using shaders!

Having problems?  Visit the Mod Troubleshooting Guide (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=10931)!



Change Log
Version 1.5.1:
- Made sun-generated lights less extreme when multiple stars are in system
- Insignia icons are scaled to the new range of officer levels
  * Tier 1: Level 1-2 (freshly hired officers)
  * Tier 2: Level 3-4
  * Tier 3: Level 5-6 (max for trainable/mercenary/NPC officers)
  * Tier 4: Level 7+ (max for procgen officers, NPC commanders, and AI or unique officers)
- Added "aaCompatMode" to GRAPHICS_OPTIONS.ini
  * Prevents GraphicsLib from crashing out at the start if you have antialiasing enabled
  * Disables the second pass of the post processing shader
  * You'll have antialiased sharpness in the campaign and the combat interface, but the actual in-battle ships/weapons/effects will be as blurry as if you weren't using antialiasing

Also crashing on load with TADA.

Question- does GraphicsLib do anything if it isn't being used as a prereq for a mod?
Like does it improve the graphics of the game? Edit: If I'm reading correctly, it does.

You'll have to adjust GraphicsLib settings.  There's not much else you can do in that situation.

Hey man your mod Underworld uses graphicslib 1.5.0 but underworld is still on 0.91a does that mean graphics lib for 0.95a is compatible with 0.91a? im confused and this might explain my crashes with remnant fleet and my cabal fleet.

before i was able to atleast load my game into the campaign and only crash in combat.

which version of Underworld is compatible with 1.4.5? because im a little confused why Underworld that is 0.91a requires a mod lib that is 0.95a?

I have enabled this mod but it crashes due to AA at startup.

I used the compat mode in the .ini but the texturing looks terrible now.

I don't see any AA options in the launcher either though the error message advises to change them here?

How do you get this mod to work and make the game look better exactly?

You'll have to turn off screen scaling and anti-aliasing if you want a sharper image with GraphicsLib.  The settings are in the launcher; click "Options...".

So in reality underworld 1.5.0 is only compatible with 1.4.5 graphics lib. got confused with the requirement headline on the main page my apologies!

Your crash is the kneecapper from HTE. Did you grab the wrong version of HTE for your version of starsector?

I had been using 1.3.0 of HTE for a while so it surprised me when updating it to 1.3.0b fixed this very odd but thank you so much figured it out just before you replied! Sorry to post this on here I was pretty sure it was because of the underworld and its odd version requirements on the main page

I frankly don't know why it says 1.5.0 in that thread.  I haven't had a real night's sleep in three weeks.  That might have to do with it.

Take no thought on it my friend I just wanted verification that I was on the correct version of GL for my game lol. Sorry to hear you've been having sleep issues I do not know you personally but I sincerely hope all is well without intruding into your personal life.

I hope you can understand why I was confused on your update post you had mentioned 1.5.0 graphics lib was required for underworld 1.5.0 which is still on version 0.91a of star sector unlike 1.5.0 of graphics lib which is for 0.95a. Was this an oversight?

I frankly don't know why it says 1.5.0 in that thread.  I haven't had a real night's sleep in three weeks.  That might have to do with it.

Take no thought on it my friend I just wanted verification that I was on the correct version of GL for my game lol. Sorry to hear you've been having sleep issues I do not know you personally but I sincerely hope all is well without intruding into your personal life. I've been strained by the pandemic myself so if it's financials or cabin fever my heart goes out to you!

Thanks; no worries.  Now, if only I can get these updates out and take a break...

So, it seems this is giving me an issue; upon launching I get this: "com.fs.starfarer.api.SettingsAPI.getScreenWidthPixels()F
tested it with *just* the Graphics.lib mod and yeah, doesn't really seem to agree with me crashes right to desktop.
Something similar happens with having both the MagicLib and LazyLib enabled at the same time, causes a CTD
"Fatal:
com.fs.starfarer.api.combat.CombatEngineAPI.addLayeredRenderingPlugin(Lcom/fs/starfarer/api/CombatLayeredRenderingPlugin;)/fs/starfarer/api/combat/CombatEntityAPI;"

I'll have to talk to the other mod makers for MagicLib and LazyLib but, I thought I'd start here.
Sorry if this is unrelated to your area of expertise lol

I may be an idiot, ignore this post for now lol

About graphic features, can I suggest idea? I think is cool idea make player ships paintable, like you can do in many multiplayer shooters with character, via texture mask, idea is what like you can make black and white texture mask which shows paintable parts of ship, and you can adjust hue and saturation of that part.

GraphicsLib is listed as "zz GraphicsLib" in the launcher's mod list, check that first.


If that wasn't it, do you have a folder in your mods folder called GraphicsLib? Does that folder have the mod_info.json file in it?

If the mod got nested in a mods/GraphicsLib/GraphicsLib folder, you'll need to un-nest it.

Hey guys, I don't know if I'm just missing something but isn't missing out on antialiasing a really hard sell for this mod? I gave it a try and it's just kinda hard to accept. Is there supposed to be some sort of built in mechanism to compensate for the lack of AA?
Title: Re: [0.95a] GraphicsLib 1.5.1
Post by: Dark.Revenant on September 23, 2021, 12:13:51 PM
The "antialiasing" used by Starsector is actually used as a form of supersampling.  If you run at 100%, 200%, or 300% screen scaling, "antialiasing" doesn't do anything.  If you have to run at some other screen scaling value, then you definitely need "antialiasing" as high as possible, or everything will be a blurfest.  This mostly affects people with 1440p displays, though personally on my 1440p display I just run in a 1080p window at 100% scaling.

In general, if you can't read the text at 100% scaling and don't have a 4K monitor, then you should just disable shaders and use 16x MSAA instead; it'll be a better experience.

As for why this restriction exists: it's complicated, but the short version is it's unavoidable.  GraphicsLib's shaders and MSAA cannot exist at the same time.

Strange loss in performance with latest starsector hotfix, latest graphics lib, and latest speedup mod. Also using nexerelin and several faction mods, including interstellar imperium.

Very high spec computer now showing 0% idle in combat (even when paused), and even with shaders toggled off using the pause button, (and speedup not enabled).

This issue was not present in the previous starsector hotfix, or the one before that. I admit I'm not sure where to post this, but I'm open to being redirected! Thank you.

Normally sits at 144 fps but I see it dipping down to 100, even on battles with roughly 4 cruisers and 4 destoyers vs the same.

I've also made a similar post in the bug report section. Will update once I test without graphicslib and speedup, etc.

Edit: Unable to test without graphicslib on this save, as interstellar imperium requires it.

Edit2: Tested without mods on vanilla, idle is now 95%+ while paused in combat, so it must be due to one of the many mods I have on. Time to test them one by one...
Title: Re: [0.95.1a] GraphicsLib 1.6.0
Post by: ApolloStarsector on December 29, 2021, 09:42:13 AM
Ok, I can definitively say that it is GraphicsLib that is dropping my idle from 95% to 0% while paused in combat (with, for example, 200 DP on the battlefield). I tested it on vanilla (no issue), with just GraphicsLib, LazyLib, and MagicLib (issue present), and then with just LazyLib and MagicLib (no issue).

This is reproducable for me by making new game on vanilla, going to the station, and running a simulation battle. Anyways, I provide this info without any demand for action. I recognize that it's just charity on the modmakers part. Let me know if more info would be beneficial, if you want!

"very high spec" doesn't really say anything; I need the actual GPU model name.

Ignoring the "idle" figure, what is the actual frame rate drop?  Have you tried with vsync enabled and disabled?

Also, does anything change if you replace the graphicslib settings file with the "default" or "craptop" presets?

Apologies, I realize that was somewhat useless. GPU: Nividia 3080 TI. Issue persists on craptop default ini. On a 400 DP (200 vs 200) battle I can see frame drops to 90 with a slightly supra-vanilla zoom ("maxCombatZoom":3.5).

Also of note: toggling shaders off does not help the issue of 0% idle.

New info: I've discovered that the game is only using a single CPU thread, and the GPU usage is low (as expected). I'm only getting 30-40 fps in a battle with 600 DP.

Setting priority to high via task manager did nothing. I noticed on the "set affinity" tab that the java process is set to use all 16 threads.

Edit: corrected "core" to "thread". I quickly read more and realized that the game is only supposed to run on one CPU core, aside from music and a few other things. However, is it possible that this is the real bottleneck? Should it be using two threads, since that's one core?

My CPU is i7 11700K. Ty for any advice / info. Or happy to provide more info.

Edit2: just went into bios and turned on "gaming mode" for the CPU. It bumped the core voltage up (instead of auto) and set the CPU fan high, plus made some multiplier changes (if I said that correctly). End result was my FPS doubled to about 60 in the same fight that I tested previously. Still baffled by 0% idle during paused combat, though.

I just personally verified that both .ini options correctly disable the crash in GraphicsLib 1.6.0, so I can only assume you didn't do it right.

Options menu is accessed from the launcher (the window with the "Play Starsector" button). It's also the menu needed to turn on antialiasing in the first place, unless you messed with aaSamplesOverride in the game's settings.json file.

A 3080 has many times more VRAM than is necessary to use GraphicsLib, so I really have no idea why having the mod enabled (in and of itself) is affecting your idle %.  That said, the idle % metric can be really misleading.  As long as your frame rate is acceptable, that's really the only thing that matters.

Starsector is inherently CPU-bottlenecked in that it only uses one thread; nothing short of a significant rewrite could utilize multiple threads in a meaningful way.  11th gen Intel CPUs tend to run blazing hot when they're utilized to the fullest, which is probably why your motherboard has a separate "gaming mode".  It's probably an enhanced variant of  "Multi-Core Enhancement", which essentially disables your CPU's TDP limits and lets it run as hot/power-hungry as possible.  As you saw, it's a huge boost in performance, especially for CPU-bound games like Starsector.

As for GraphicsLib, having shaders enabled WILL affect performance, even if you're not GPU-limited.  The reason for this is that, as Starsector is single-threaded, the extra graphics API calls are also made on that one thread, so there's more work for the CPU to do.  The performance cost is generally around 15-30%, depending on your exact settings/situation.

Could you set up a standard test (say, a campaign battle that you can deploy-all, then zoom out and wait a few seconds, and then record the frame rate)?  You'd want to test these scenarios:
1. Framerate with GraphicsLib disabled
2. Framerate with GraphicsLib enabled
3. Framerate with GraphicsLib enabled but after the battle starts you disable shaders by pressing pause/break

Thank you for your insightful reply. Good points all around. I started to perform the tests as you suggested (and I decreased the max combat zoom to 3.0), and I realized that without the speedup mod doing 1-100x, the FPS remained close to 144, including some idling (not that it matters particularly much, as you pointed out). With the speedup mod doing 1-100x, the FPS remained above 60 with a battle size of 600 and max zoomed out to 3.0. I'm actually happy with that, now that I've made the adjustments to the bios as I mentioned previously. Especially considering that the whole thing is practically running on one thread!

I've also realized that I can bump up the minimum target frame rate in the speedup ini so that I can maintain a higher FPS, which I plan to do. Thanks again.

The "antialiasing" used by Starsector is actually used as a form of supersampling.  If you run at 100%, 200%, or 300% screen scaling, "antialiasing" doesn't do anything.  If you have to run at some other screen scaling value, then you definitely need "antialiasing" as high as possible, or everything will be a blurfest.  This mostly affects people with 1440p displays, though personally on my 1440p display I just run in a 1080p window at 100% scaling.

What are the shaders and post-processing that I will be missing out on by disabling them? I don't like how blurry the ships/weapons etc. get at 140% screen scaling on my 2560x1440p monitor without AA, but I also don't want to set it to 1080p so 100% scaling is usable as it also introduces different issues (A different type of pixelation blur, lower quality etc.). I run a heavily modded game so I'm assuming a lot of the mods that require GraphicsLib won't look as good or have missing effects. Is there really no other alternative?

Post by: ApolloStarsector on December 31, 2021, 11:43:06 PM
Depends how much you're zooming in. The shaders are often indistinguishable from on-to-off at first glance, but certain well-made normal maps make the details pop on many ships, depending on the lighting.

It sounds like crispness and scale is a higher priority for you. I would simply disable the shaders / use AA compatability mode, if I were you.

Edit: I defer to DarkRev on AA, obviously!

If your monitor is big enough to run at 100% scaling at 1440p (i.e. you can still read text comfortably), you won't need antialiasing.  It's only when you have a scaling factor other than a multiple of 100 that AA does anything.  This is because "antialiasing" in this context is really a form of multisampling, an archaic form of the same principle that allows things like DLSS in modern AAA games to scale up the screen from a lower base resolution.  Basically, if you set scaling to 100%, the game will run at a native 1440p resolution instead of running ~1080p and scaling up.

If 100% scaling results in text that's too small to comfortably read,  I suggest disabling shaders.  Being able to read text is way more important than some ripply shields and flashy lights.

Post by: JustThatGoo on January 01, 2022, 08:55:49 PM
Yeah 100% scale isn't really usable on 27" 1440p 165hz monitor. So I decided to actually spend the effort testing with Nvidia scaling/sharpening instead of complaining on a forum, I'll just post it here in case it helps anyone:

Fullscreen as personal choice though of course windowed won't stretch the smaller resolutions: Testing 3 options of 2560x1440p with 135% scaling; 1080p resolution on 1440p monitor; 2176x1224p Nvidia 85% image downscale option from 1440p with sharpen. The 1224p downscale did look better than the 1080p when I turned on the sharpen option at 30%, as it should. 1080p I couldn't tell the difference with sharpen 30% on/off, didn't test with higher sharpen. However both 1080p and 1224p did have great pixelation on my monitor especially on busy ships/sprites such as large missile racks and distinguishing each missile tube etc. This is all pretty obvious

Native 1440p 135% ui scale with just 30% sharpen surprisingly kind of fixed my issue, I ended up increasing to 50% sharpening. Doesn't look quite as good as 16x AA or 100% and it does have 'jaggies'. This also sharpens text and 'everything' on the game, however it looks quite nice and makes text/planets/ships and drones pop out in space a bit more. Mileage may vary depending on your monitor and its settings

I am face a problem with getting the mod to work. So I would like so help please. So pretty much I dowload the mod I get this 7z file which is a text document. I don't get a folder or a compress folder. I then move this file to the mods. I then start up starsector then goes to the mods and graphicslib does not show up. I then go delete the graphicslib file and then redowload it. It still does not work. I still get a 7z file. I then thought that since it is not in a folder that I should put it into a folder. So I do that and it still does not work. I do not know what the probliem is and this is my first time trying to install graphicslib. So I would appreciate some help.

7z is not a text file but a compressed archive format.

i noticed that graphics lib makes performance in combat... "unpleasant"

constant microstutters when things start happening, have already pinpointed the problem to be graphics lib specifically.

problems only started appearing after updating graphics lib to its current version.

CPU/GPU models?

The only thing that was changed was one of the distortion shaders.  Try disabling distortions in the options to see if it goes away.

i tried disabling and enabling a few things already, without success (aside from disabling shaders alltogether)

i7 -4790 and gtx 1050

Also how many mods? My own 1050 can handle only so much faction mod content before its 2 GB VRAM gets used up completely in battles.

1, i allocated 4gb, 2 i tested graphic lib by itself, also happens even in missions

default mod settings (the only things i changed are the header flags, you know "enable/disable bloom" or "enable/disable distortions", )

starsectors settings, 100 ui scaling, no anti, 1920 x 1080, windowed fullscreen, vsync yes, no devmode, and i think thats it

it has to have something to do with the shaders, cause like i said, disabling them alltogether fixes that stuttering

Quick check: Is this a laptop or such with an integrated card, where the GTX 1050 maybe isn't being used with Starsector?

Interesting, new graphic features are planned? I think good one is ability to repaint ships, like many games have ability to paint weapons/vehicles via color overlay and hue shifts, using black and white masks to determine parts of textures which doesn't need to be painted. I think its neat and more noticeable feature that normal maps. The idea is make faction ships to have same color scheme without actually making alot of .skin files of same ships, and make player faction look more uniform for example, less like different colored mess.

Creating ship skins on the fly is outside of the scope of the mod and would probably be a pain in the ass to implement, alongside looking awful (more work than you'd think goes into making a good looking skin, they're not just simple masks!)

Many games have their weapons/vehicles paintable via masks, and its looks good, and if possible to implement normal maps and lighting effects with custom masks, this one is definitely possible, just overlay colors or make hue shifts. Speaking of scope and relevance, its same visual thing like normal maps and other graphic features. Just interesting why people against it, its much more noticeable and rather than normal maps ingame.

Most of those games are either 3d games that can use layered shaders, or 2d games designed from the ground up for that feature by leaving areas feature-less and color-less so that those can be tweaked.

As you said, adding this feature to Starsector would imply creating masks for every unit in the game, for vanilla and every mod. That is a ridiculously huge undertaking, and a significant drain of Vram.

TLDR, however nice it would be, it's just not practical to implement.

This can be said for this normal map feature, also requires effort of making normal maps for every ship too and uses vram too. Main advantage of mask method though, its what I think it will definitely consume less vram and time rather than making different colored ships as .skin. and making like ten of different colored Eagles for example.

Well it was just a suggestion, in case if something new is planned, and speaking of creating masks for every unit, it also not necessary it could be optional option for a modders, since yes, it will take time.

Each mask will consume _exactly_ as much Vram as one normal map, or as one skinned ship sprite. Uncompressed images are just like that. Unlike normal-maps however, you can't shove your sprites into a conversion software to automate the entire process of making masks.

Graphicslib (and all of DR's mods) are distributed as .7z files, you need 7zip (or i think winrar can do it? idk) to open them

I know this is a bit of a dumb question, but is there a way to enable the flashbang explosions while keeping the other effects? I know the mod disables them by default but I scoured the settings and dont really know how to renable them.

I think it should also be noted if you have other mods that disable the explosion white outs (a few of the Quality of Life mods do this) you may need to enable those too.
