How To Fix Water Effect Tutorial

Important info below

I HIGHLY recommend using Water version 5.4 which you can download here -> link :)

Also, in older versions of this effect, you don't need to/shouldn't change the name of textures folder.

I believe you can fix other effects as well with this method ^^ .

Have you and MillyCat1123 tried to load a skydome in with the effect? It should reflect that.

does this water version reflect shaders or do i need to modify the mirrorobject.fx file?

It keeps wanting to be circular, and doesn't splash. :<

Finally got it to work, Thank you!! Just a quick question.... when I load up the puddle, its got a think white outline, while the middle area looks normal, plus its super qlitchy when the camera moves.

You just need a skydome for the water to reflect off of. ^^

After I upgraded my PC to a gamer PC with better graphics card, my 5.4 water suddenly started to appear as white box, I really loved that effect so I was extremely sad that I couldn't use t anymore...

Is there a possibility that you can turn the water red, like have blood instead of clear liquid?
Skyeronpa's avatar
You'll have to change the texture of the water.
