Well, what the name doesn't say, the pictures should. I aim to make Homeworld 2 a visual feast. At this point I plan no gameplay changes. Credit to CNLPEPPER for his v2 shaders. Also feel free to tell me what you like and not, I can't guarantee everybody's happiness but I'll try my best to listen.

Description

This is the release. it is not finished, the tweaking is not done, and some of the subsystems aren't done either, chimera station, tanis and the platforms aren't done either, they look terrible, and i might've missed a few probes. i am releasing because i will not be modding any further. i played the campaign through, it crashed once but it was not a recurring issue. to install, extract the ultra.big into the data folder of your game directory and create a shortcut of the hw2 executable. add " -mod ultra.big" without the quotation marks to the target, for larger resolution you must also add -w xxxx -h xxxx -hardwarecursor, for instance -w 1920 -h 1080 and enjoy. oh and your graphics card must have shader v2 capabilities. you can report bugs if you like.. just don't expect me to fix them anytime soon.

Gekko, remove the semi colons and replace them with spaces. in other words, before each "-" there should be a " ". have fun fellow space pirate :p

what shadows my friend? i have posted pictures with working shadows. you know this game does not support ships casting shadows on each other, they can only cast on themselves and their subsystems.

uhm.. try something, try plugging your laptop into a tv or other monitor and see if it works, my adjudicator worked on a laptop that had the same issue, for some reason, it did not work if the screen was not plugged in.. haha she wasn't very impressed with my "graphics mod" until she used a tv.

I dont know why, but with this mod every single ship is just blindingly bright, basically white, the shortcut to the ultra file is working, but the mods not functioning properly, could anyone help me out?

what does your shortcut target say? because it sounds like you may have something that wants to use shader 1 instead of 2

That would be the last hope. i know some laptops have trouble running this mod and i have not tested at all on windows 8. I removed it from my laptop about a day after getting it, but i'm sure lots of people are using 8 successfully.

Please send me a screenshot, i will think what it could be when i look at the actual result. I don't want to say anything if i don't know what the problem actually looks like.

I doubt I will ever understand why people buy laptops and expect them to be the equal of desktops when it comes to 3d gaming--it's just not gonna' happen. When laptops are bought, what people have paid for is portability and battery life--raw performance for gpus and cpus is way down the checklist for laptops in general--whether they say "gaming" or they don't. Desktops are far more powerful and far better buys, too...;) My moto is: "Why buy a laptop if you don't have to?"

Looks like a great mod--downloading now...;)
