Hdri problem

I followed this tutorial http://biorust.com/index.php?page=tutorial_detail&tutid=73
But it basically didnt work, i ended with a sphere that just reflected blue.
Can anyone spot any errors in the tutorial.

when u creat a new texture in texture panel u come back at world panel and u set it up for Hori to see it in preview.

Not again…

Now, two things come to my mind:

  1. The tutorial is outdated. It simply DOESN’T WORK like that anymore (because you need to map the Texture to “Hori” instead of “Blend” in the “Map to” tab and enabling GI wouldn’t hurt either…as said above)
  2. Please would you do a search the next time first? There are like dozens of these threads (okay, I’m exaggerating but I’m getting close…). Thank you and excuse me but I just couldn’t help myself :wink:
