Weird texture behaviour with []

Hello, fellow patchers.

I am having some issues with multiple textures on and I hoped someone could give me a hint what I’m doing wrong?

In short: My objects (gl.gridhape x gl.multiple) seem to disappear if I do not! set one of the object’s apply attribute to “decal”.
The rest of them is set to modulate, which is what I want because of the alpha channel.

This seems to have something to do with the object..? And oddly enough it has to be a specific instance of the texture objects which has to be set to “decal”.

Please have a look at the patch, one GL-rendered scenery can sometimes tell you more then a 1000 words.

Thank you! I appreciate it.

Attached are also some textures.
Just point the patch there by clicking on the bang.

I see what you’re talking about. It will take me a while to dig into this and figure out what’s going on. I’ll post back when I do.

I’m still not exactly sure what was going on in your patch, but here’s one that seems to work just fine. You’ll have to change the folder/prefix of the umenu to reflect the path of the texture images for it to work.
