Doesn't work properly. Only 3 files are being loaded by the game:
zzz_shaders_enhancer_q4_fast.pk4
zzzhidef q4maps etc.pk4
zzzhidef q4textures6.pk4

So basically only first two and the last pk4 file. The rest is ignored. I'm using Steam version 1.4.3.

Its okay in like 1 week ill launch one that not only works, but absolutely curbstomps this lazy trash. Which the attitude these people tends to be even if you are nice about it, is its your fault. Its on your end. Its pretty funny when after they tell you something like this, you show up out of nowhere destroying their whole career.

Its pure entertainment for the mods on some level im sure. Mostly because its verifiably true. Im the reason H3llbaron another DOOM 3 modder type who pretends to care more than he actually does made his account private. Its so juicy bro.

Strap in, click my profile mods tab, and get ready for a epic ride.

I have only 3 steps left. The file size is already around 22GBs. Which surprisingly isnt that impressive even factoring in hardcore levels of RLE specific useage. Its because straight up TGA is just awful, and 100% probability because this parallel universe so far kind of sucks, if these randos do use RLE, its in a one size fits all do it in everything sort of way half defeating the purpose. Its admittedly niche knowledge. No one uses TGA formats except DX8 hardware era tech demos.

Getting DDS DXT series options working isnt happening unless your name is The Retro Software Hacker. Honestly Quake 4 because its using up memory budget for an entirely new layer, is going to force me to be far more extreme about budgetary optimization toward what can actually be seen by humans. Its very time consuming doing this correctly because its so many different kinds of passes and testing by eye.

14GBs is pushing the engine to like 60% of its actual potential. And the quality of his upscales are not good. No ones will be without human intelligence in the pipeline reconstructing some stuff by hand which is what I do with all my mods.

And Gigapixel in this past year or so its just dominating all of the competition. Their investment cycle is definitely higher burn rate than others in the market/field. The potential of this tech is not properly realized by most modders and its very sad.

If you want to be respectful to all the bros in the community (time is precious so dont waste it!), to the modder here, reverse engineer my upload and target specific hardware people actually have that maybe isnt Ampere or Lovelace because I got that covered. Consider yourself redeemed and if you want to go hardcore, join forces with my projects. Just distance yourself from the laziness bro. Treat modding like if you fail, mankind is doomed. Not like its a cheap lunch.

Show me you actually care. Blurry 14GB texture mods for id tech 4 just arent good enough even targeting a RTX 2080 series GPU. Sorry I get the glory of the top iteration of this engine. You dont. If thats triggering good. Snap out of complacency. Rise to the occasion. Join the retro Rennaissance.

Earn my respect by saving me time by doing good work that is objectively observable. For the love of God. OCD is a hard master.

Dont cry about it either. Its only personal when I download it and it wastes my time.

I see no difference so I deleted everything. I guess it's because I have the GOG version, never mind.

Well, I was hoping that MS won't break mods application but it looks like MS has scrwed their Q4 version. Thanks for checking and trying to find a way out.

I think the only way is to submit the mod to them, but then they are in control and I cant update

That's the reason why I don't like games released by MS with their Xbox App. They are making many things restricted and unavailable in the game folder.
