Emulator Issues #3041
Super mario galaxy 1 & 2, star bits and coins are not shiny...
Hi all, I noticed a problem that I think it has always existed! I tried all graphic plugin with various settings, about any revision, also last 6089, both x86 and x64, the star bits coins and pipes are not shiny as they should be. first, second and third screen are from dolphin, others from original wii, look at star bits coin, tongue of dino piranha and pipes!! Beside thereìs is another problem, some "balloons" (that green thing that you strike rounding) have not any effect of light...

In addition to what you mentioned above, chance cubes are also supposed to have a shiny/reflective surface, but this effect seems to be missing. Lubba the luma should also be a darker shade of purple and have a shine which he doesn't, instead he is a light shade of purple without any shine.
If I am not mistaken, I believe there's already an existing issue open for these same exact issues that are also being reported here.

Yes I know and I searched for this issue, but nothing found, so I decided to create this issue to report those problems with screenshots and proof!:) I hope to be helpful and tomake a good work!;) And yes i noticed that a lot of shiny and glow effecst are missed like a lot of light reflection on various surface (e.g star bits, tongue, chance cubes, coins, pipes, and green balloons) And maybe fixing those problems, a lot of other problems will be fixed!:)

My mistake, chance cubes seem to be reflective in Dolphin albeit the reflectiveness isn't rendered like it is on the actual Wii.
Perhaps rodolfoosvaldobogado will be able to look into this issue since he was the brains that fixed the issue with the incorrectly rendered Luma's that were clear in the past until recently.

I thought I would chime in and say the chance cubes and starbits are reflective, but it isn't rendered like it is on the actual hardware, it's not as shiny.
Lubba is a pale purple on Dolphin, and is a shiny/reflective darker purple on the actual Wii. The green stretch ball plants also aren't rendered as they are on the hardware as mentioned above.
This issue should be merged into this issue and CC'd the the appropriate developers:

And here every photo, I added also the image on the other issue of chane2k1, I remember that he posted that issue but I didn't found it... and I tried to make a one more complete!

Sorry to all for problems with images, I hope now it's ok!=)
Oh, I don't know if it's only my impression, but mario too has some problem of light like those green things! I think it is only a big issue, and fixing it will fix a lot of things! I'm not a developer, I only reported this issue and try helping in some way...

Rodolfo's r6103 was an improvement, but the issue is still not completely fixed. Here's what I mentioned as a comment for r6103:
Lubba is still the wrong shade of purple and lacks that glossy look like he does on the actual Wii. Also the outline around Lubba is too large and also the wrong shade of purple.
The reflection on the chance cubes in SMG2 is also not quite right like on the Wii. There's too much area on the cube being reflected and it seems quite bright/white.
The textures on Mario also aren't glossy/bright as the actual Wii.
Lubba should be a darker shade of purple and glossy like he is on the Wii. The pink'ish outline around Lubba is too large and also the wrong shade. The colors are actually lighter than they should be and don't have that glossy look.

Yes, I read all comments, and yes still there is a problem still on the glossy effect and material lighting, I noticed a very huge improvement in Rodolfo's r6013, but still star bits coins pipes and other things, are not shiny or haven't the correct lighting effect and reflections, and if you observe the green ballons with glow effect yo will notice that the effect is not "homogeneous" it's squared on the brighter edges!
Always sorry for my english!:P I try to be more explicative than I can!
