Next & Better Shaders v7.8.5 - D3 & Dhewm 3 - A Mod for Doom 3.

Latest Shaders Pack for D3 & ROE - v7.8.5 by Dafama. (10-09-2022)

This NEW package contains the latest versions of my NG shaders
Also since v2.4, it start a series of 2 new shaders based on Parallax and on Relief techniques respectively. :D

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"

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.


Very latest features on shaders...:

    Absolutely love the "ng_shaders_parallax" shader! However with it the text on walls, doors and such is all messed up, like here for example:
    Would be awesome if you could fix it.
