This HD texture pack completes the Unreal Retexturing Project. Now ALL the textures have been remade in HD and have been through several rounds of improvements. Experience the classic 1998 3D shooter in stunning high definition like never before!
Visit the project webpage to find the HD4K Extreme Resolution Edition v3 for the Direct X 11 renderer
HD skins for players, monsters, weapons, pickups, and decorations require a separate mod: The HD Skins mod By Lightning Hunter
This release can be used for playing online and offline.
These textures replace the original low-res textures with high resolution replacement textures that look virtually identical at a distance, but have a much higher degree of detail as you get closer up. Therefore the game looks crisp and detailed instead of blurry and low res.

Other optional versions of this HD pack are found there: HD4K Extreme Resolution Edition v3 for the Direct X 11 renderer
Also the S3TC Techdemo Betatextures, an HD pack that features all of the earliest HD textures by Epic and Diehard unaltered, many of which were replaced in the v2 and v3 pack. Any missing textures are now filled in from the v3 pack.
Installation \ Configuration
The Old Unreal 227 patch is highly recommended, especially for avoiding virtual memory crashes. It also comes with updated renders for the game that handle the HD textures well. Use. DirectX8, DirectX9, or OpenGL. You can also use the DirectX11 renderer by DarknovisMC
Warning- never use these textures on a server or when mapping.
In short, there are only 2 things needed to upgrade Unreals’s textures to HD.
Overwrite the original .UTX files in the games /Texures folder with the new UTX files.
Have “use S3TC=TRUE” in the renderer preferences. It should already be by default in DirectX8, DirectX9, or OpenGL.
Also in Advanced options set Rendering - VolumetricLighting to true for your renderer. This turns on fog effects
-Epic Games - they created a relatively small number of HD textures that came on UT99 disc 2. And of course all of the original textures...
-Diehard SCWS- created a huge number of textures included here.
-AHaigh01 -that's me.
-KAOSCasey - For making the merger tool that creates these packages.
-Krull0r for lots of suggestions and feedback.
-Lightning Hunter- For lots of advice and consultation throughout the creation process of this HD pack, and finding many errors. He also contributed his texturing skills to many textures (see readme file)
