Hello everyone!


I'm a little bit late with this, but Happy New Year for all of you! :-)


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:

Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2: Retextured

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.

- For compatibility issues and custom resolution, check out the following page: PCGamingWiki - Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2
- You can force the game to use 16x anisotropic filtering via AMD/Nvidia control panel.

hello this is a great project for a super obscure game ha though i was wondering if you could answer me two questions about the game itself and if the mod has any effect on these at least

no cross hair appears in game. i can't quite figure it out as to why. i'm using your mod and a widscreen mod.

when i launch the game it doesn't actually launch, but if i launch a second time it does. i just have to use task-manager to kill the "ghost" process that doesn't do anything. it didn't do this at first i swear only after applying the mods.

Hello Deadza

Make a copy of the fakk2.exe file, name it quake3.exe, maybe it helps with the startup problem.

There is no fixed crosshair that is always on the screen, some of the weapons have crosshair (Rocket Launcher for example) or an auto-targeting "ring" on the enemy (Uzi for example).

Sorry for the late reply.

Very thanks for this mod !
I find it awesome that you put so much love into such an old game.
I love the game for his awesome art style and the cool music.
i prefer the games from this era and because of cool people like you we can still enjoy them with mods today.
I do not like the direction the games industry and windows is moving to.
Everythin goes clound and gamepass.
I hope people can still enjoy such old games on windows 10 in the future and microsoft will not cut off old braids !

I have a question :
When I enable a custom resolution at sample 1440p the start screen of the game is extemly small,its just a litle square.
But I love the start screen so much ,it is such an amazing picture of julie,it is art.
is it possible to get this start screen somehow in fullscreen like it is with 4:3 resolutions ?

The size of the menus are fixed (640x480), however it can be tweaked, but it's very painful to do that :) It can be customized to a specific resolution (for example 1024x768) with a tool called dlgedit (you can find it in FAKK Tools package), however you must resize and re-position every element (buttons, background animations) on every menu screen (save game, load game, options). It is pretty nasty :)
