    I'm struggling to get chrome effect in DX11. Using the same settings as DX9 but not the same effects.
    Anyone got it working and care to share there settings?

    Would a total black (or near black) alpha layer correct the issue?

    In that screen shot I have a full black alpha. In DX9 I used a dark to mid grey and I have tried white. The texture itself is black but I have tried different shades to white as well.

    You need fresnel reflect settings that allows full reflection... Min, Intensity at 1.0/1.5 or so

    Aaand then you need a white alpha channel, which should determine the amount of reflection - 255 = maximum reflection.

    EDIT: and power 1.0 as well

    No idea if this is the right way to do it but these are the settings I am currently using for Stock Car Resurrection. It allows for chrome to a flat dull paint depending on the color of the alpha channel. You can find paint templates I made for an example of the alpha channels here. It may also help to add some ambient occlusion shadows to the texture like in my templates

    Thanks toebee, My problem was the shader I was using cube specular map t1, where I had no control. After changing to the car shader I now have control. Starting to get closer. I have a few different settings in the screenshot below. I like the exhaust and door handle and trim.
    Rim
    Bumpers
    exhaust
    Door handle and trim

    the only problem I can see here is that you have an old holden in the picture and not an old ford. :D
