    I've seen this done before, so I'm pretty dang sure it's possible. I just have no idea how to go about doing it, I'm terrible with material files.

    Basically I'm looking for a way to create this effect, just like an outline outside of the character.
    I tried playing around with this guy's material but to no avail. I dunno if it's only meant for a specific shader or whats up.

    The material itself kinda works, like the texture still shows up at least, the outline just doesn't show up.
    Code:
    material videyo_ozzy
    {
        receive_shadows on
        technique
        {
            pass OutlineExperiement
    {
        diffuse 1 1 1
        set $edgeScale 900
        set $sinkScale 1
        vertex_program_ref OutlineExperimentVP
        {
            param_named edgeScale float $edgeScale
            param_named sinkScale float $sinkScale
        }
            {
            ambient 0.95 0.95 0.95 1
            diffuse 0.6 0.6 0.6 1
            specular 0.1 0.1 0.1 1
              
              
                texture_unit
                {
                    texture ozzytex.png
                }
            }
        }
    }
    }

    Alas, that coding is not compatible with this server.
    I think that kind of coding requires certain flies to be within the core game which DoE lacks.

    The game is still in alpha so maybe in the future @Myz could fix this issue as well as the asymmetrical marks which also don't work.

    Not a problem.

    From my experience all other presets codes will work including scrolling, glow, layered markings, asymmetrical eyes and so on. (minus cel shading, which falls under the outline problem)
