Qeffects-GL graphics enhancer

A Mod for Half-Life

This is the perfect mod to update the hl graphics without hurting your eyes. Is so underrated, posting it here should get it some more attention. Here are the official features -Anisotropic texture filtering -Full-screen antialiasing (MSAA) -HSL color correction -Screen-space emboss bump-mapping -Screen-space ambient occlusion -Bloom (One that is not too exagerated to leave you blind) -Depth of Field (Enable in ini file) However, in hl, it also adds fake soft shadows, it is very noticeable when you look at a model closely and moves, but since they are fake, it means that they are not volunmetric, may only be seen from a close-up, and will always be seen from one angle only. There are some small bugs as well, like being able to see the silhouettes of everything in the dark behind a glass, and chances of color degrading around some weaker lights, but they are not that noticeable and could be overlooked. Another great thing is that it works for all hl mods, but it could conflict with other graphical enhancements these may have so keep that in mind, also the dll is detected by VAC as a cheat so DO NOT PLAY ONLINE WHILE USING IT!! It works for other Opengl based games too but might not be as good. Just put the files in the game directory

    > **Posted by EthanAG** > > It looks good from the screenshots and I want to try it out. But I don't know how to install it. I dropped them in the directory with 'hl.exe' but that doesn't work. Do you need a special config to make it work? no, you just need to put it in the main directory of the game, not inside the valve folder, dropping the Qeffects-GL files should get it working.

    It looks good from the screenshots and I want to try it out. But I don't know how to install it. I dropped them in the directory with 'hl.exe' but that doesn't work. Do you need a special config to make it work? EDIT: It's detected by Valve as a cheat, I have not figured a way around it for Steam installations.

    > **Posted by minmi96** > > Question: what is the HL revamp pack you're working on? Is it like supposed to be an HD pack or something? is a old school pack for the game with improvements, it will have tons of new sounds and some custom textures, but it is not really hd, this one focuses a lot on concistency and functionality, as many times, those super hd models contrast too much with the world and/or may have some problems playing certain animations.
