Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.² (FAKK2) is a third-person shooter computer game made by Ritual Entertainment in 2000. A sequel to the Heavy Metal 2000 animated movie, the game stars Julie in her quest to save her home planet of Eden from GITH, an ancient entity seeking to conquer the universe. Using a variety of weapons, Julie must now fight off GITH's forces while at the same time uncovering a secret hidden deep within the planet.
The good news is that I've managed to finish the mod. The final size is around 2.5 gigabytes. It works well on my old laptop too, so that's another good thing. The download link will be available here:
There are some textures however that I left untouched, those freakin' sprites that I mentioned in the previous articles (for example: green blood splatter, Gith's head fx). If I replace them with bigger textures, the in-game sprite size increases with the image's size. Imagine a single blood splat from a mosquito that is bigger than your player character. I spent days trying to solve it. Found the file where I can modify the sprite/shader behavior, however nothing changes in the game at all when I test it out. The good thing is that only a few textures affected by this issue.
This game is pretty old, and there are some things you can tweak to get the best results.
