Can't wait for full release. It's been a looooooong time :) ....
That's great. Many thanks for info, guys.
Ps: For good news is never too late :)
This settings make my game looks great... DO NOT USE, if it make your game looks like ****. Free will :)
It is not "Now available on Steam"... Perhaphs "Coming Soon" or "Available Soon" could be more accurate...
I love it! One thing: footsteps sounds are way too loud...
J. Carmack said so, not me hehe. And it does make sense, since BFG Edition was built with consoles in mind. It's only upscaled on pc. Check game cfg, you'll see that even if you change resolution in game options to 1080, internal resolution remains at 720.
It's a bug. Found this in J. Carmack's archives:
Game dynamically reduces horizontal resolution to try maintain constant FPS. You can disable this with
set rs_enable "0"
Let me know if it helps :)
Ooops, it was a typo. Sorry :)
r_hdrkey 0.01 not 0.1 of course...
0.05 makes still to much of that killing my eyes blue/violet ambient lights haze).
0.02-0.03 is optimal
My latest and optimal, in my opinion settings:
Yeah, it's common ATI problem. OpenGL based games never worked propertly on Radeon cards. Poorly designed ATI OpenGL drivers, not supporting so many of OpenGL extensions.
I've experimented little bit with cfg.
Settings below makes mess effects balanced:
r_hdrkey 0.1 (if set more than 0.1 hdr goes over powered)
If SSAO is set to 0 textures are too bright, over exposed and over contrasted. When set to 1 SSAO makes all that also messy and muddy. Confusing, isn't?
SSGI brutal power is equalizing SSAO messy muds, blends it with hdr over powered colors. That makes textures look natural, over burned and stained dirty metal.
Yeah. It's better now. Thanks for the fixes, y2keeth.
Picture is still oversharpened and overexposed but at least not as messy as was before.
I love it!
Great job guys!!!
Thanks for the new patch, man.
Ooops, i have annoying problem:
Game is rolling back all my graphics settings to very low state everytime i start it. But when i launch Trentphrozo, or any other mod this is not happening.
Strange, isn't? Any idea what could be the reason of that?
Also, game picture is way too bright and oversharpened. It makes texures and models looking really awful, not to mention of driving me to insane flashlight shadow (it looks like white brush trail on screen).
I'm afraid O'Neil's behaviour is not any better hehe. He is still not folowing sometimes and i have to restart checkpoints, not shooting when it's needed (but starting shooting when is too late hehe)...
Oh, i forgot of one more thing: game keeps reseting my video settings at start. It is not a big problem, but have to go and change them everytime i launch ACM. Any solution?
FANTASTIC WORK!!! Keep it up. guys!
Keep it coming, man. KUDOS!!!
Much obliged, sir!!!
Absolutely fantastic job, sir. But i still have fog and smoke issue:
Have you solution how to get rid of this thing? Or maybe i did something wrong...
I have never insulted you or your project. Creating such a thing is hell of a challenge. I admire people with passions like yours. I really do.
So why you are so angry?
You know completely nothing about me, yet started spitting acid:
-"the fact that you don't like the answers"
-"age has nothing to do with you not being able to take a very simple fact about your hardware"
Where the hell did you get these "facts"?
I can asure you that i am little bit more than familiar with computers.
For over 25 years PC's are my hobby, my passion and my job (i work for professional software testing company, and i own small computer workshop). I have designed and builded many gaming rigs for me, my friends and clients of my shop.
I know exactly what my machine can handle or not. Even if little bit aged it is still powerful. That's good enough for me and my needs.
I hope we could stop our kinda childlish "conversation" right here, can we? At least i will...
Kind Regards and good luck with your projects.
I'm definitely getting too old for this.
What was the point of that comment?
Well, i would like to answer:
My "outdated" hardware is powerful enough to run
Your "up to date" game, powered by very much "up to date", 10 years old engine...
And that would be all. End of story, pretty please :)
I love Zdzisław Beksińsi works. It is great that his amazing, surreal arts are inspiration for game designers.
Btw: His works also inspired dreamscape conceptual art in William Malone's movie: Parasomnia (2008)
Take it easy, man. I did not try to be rude or insult You, i'm far from it. I admire titanic work that You have done, just as i admire everyone who has passions...
I'm not trying to play it on outdated computer (Win 7 x64, GTX 690, i7 960, 16 GB Ram, 512GB SSD), as well as didn't try to play a non official repack (at launch i've downloaded it from official game page, year later too, yesterday from here).
All i'm saying is: because it never worked for me i give up.
