This Pack of Shaders for Doom 3 are all newly made by scratch, by me, they are based on the default ones that comes with Doom 3 and ROE. There is one shaders called classic, they are very good and feel like original Doom 3 just better and enhanced, there is another shaders called HL2, this shaders almost identical to the ones used on the original source Hal Life 2 first released version and finally, there is the ones called the BEST, as its name says, they are the BEST, not the best here, the BEST of any other shader mods, the B E S T !!! The metal look as metal, the skin look as skin, the plastic as plastic, the wet as wet, but it doesn't look wet, brilliant and plastic all, like some other shaders. lol
Also, very important, this shaders have made not only for get the best image quality, but also, for be fast, very fast, so the gameplay is smooth and enjoyable, does NOT remove the scare factor, so, go try them now, because they are the BEST !!! ;D
Now, since v2.4, with 2 new shaders that support both Parallax and Relief, respectively !
Note...: Special Parallax and Relief textures not included, you can find on many shaders packages.
WARNING !!! Very Important !...:
set image_usePrecompressedTextures "0" set image_useCompression "0" vid_Restart
This 3 lines above, should be included on the Autoexec.cfg into the folder of this mod, without them, shaders will NOT display any Relief or Parallax at all, ok ?
I recommend also, setting 'set r_lightScale 1.0' if you want a more "classic" Doom 3 style environment, (more dark), if not, the default '2.0' value for this command will enable a more "BFG" clean style look.
Installation is just as easy as to go open with winzip, winrar or similar program, the .zip file that contains a folder called D3, inside there is folders, each folder its a mod, just drop one of this folders that contains the .pk4 files that is made the mods, to your own Doom 3 root directory, not base or d3xp official folders, ok ?
Then go run Doom 3 and select the mod from the list of mods and play the game, then you will see how look Doom 3 in 2013 ! :D
Alternatively, from your O.S., after drop that folders of mods you want to try, go inside the first folder of the mod you want to use for play some map and look for a file called nameofthemod.cmd, where that nameofthemod is the name of the mod, just doble-clic on it and will execute Doom 3 with the mod selected and ready for use, ok ? Easy !!!
