Hello Mathuzzz,

I saw your name in several forums. Its good, that you joined here too.

The Link you gave us is... well how shall I call it.... very interesting.
Screenshots are looking simply superb.
These russian guys really have the right feeling for this game.
And much skills.

The skins for all models are very close to the original look; and even LITīs for Portals are there !


The textures lack quality though. Inkub0īs are better regarding quality and have a higher resolution.
Inkub0 has a homogeneous quality in textures, while the russians are somehow conglomerated.
But the good thing about them: They look really almost like the originals.
Even a bit darker / more dirty (what I like)

So this seems to be a very important requirement from the russian guys for their project:
To keep the original look/feel as much as possible. And they archive this perfectly.

[EDITED]
If you want to test these textures in FTE, make sure you delete the subfolders in textures
(due to the sky textures and sub-subfolders).
Models work fine in FTE out of the box (but the sprite effects look a little weird).
[/EDITED]

On the other side, it contains warez.
Because the complete Hexen 2 and Mission Pack is included.

Hi Seven, thank you for your welcome

I also like Inkub0īs textures more, especially decorative/reliefs...But as you said, Hexen 2 is dark and some of their dirty textures really fit in there more.

For my maps I will either use UQE Hexen or jsHexen. None of them satisfy me, but FTE seem to me unstable.

It would be cool to combine these two texture packs to have at least one complete retexture/reskin pack.

My mind was to add dirty/dark/cracked effects with normal maps...
anyways, i like negative comments

Another reason why russian textures seems to fit more in the game is that these textures are the old ones with some photoshop effects

@ Mathuzzz

If youīd asked me 1 month ago, I would have said:
Yes, FTE is a little unstable and maybe not polished for Single Player Hexen 2.

But You cant imagine how hard Spike from FTE team worked to get every little bug killed
the last weeks, since this thread was born: Fteqw - CIA.vc
Thank you very much Spike for your great support and patients with me !
Go grab the latest build from here. Its everything but "unstable": Index of /moodles/unstable
(If you use Windows, take "fteglqw.exe" from win32 folder)

Now FTE is 1st choice for Hexen 2:
- LIT files support
- external textures (incl. bump + luma), skins, skyboxes, etc.
- since svn 3590 "load / save game" works perfectly !
- rock stable
- every resolution you want
- bloom and Real Time Lighting
- glowing powerups (perfect for the dark places)
- md3īs, shadows
- and much much more

[EDITED]
Use "-hexen2" shortcut to start main H2. Use "-portals" to start Praevus.
To create a config file (to save your option adjustments), type cfg_save in console
(you will find it in "fteh2" folder afterwards)
THis is still necessary at the moment.
[/EDITED]


@ inkub0

thank you for V0.55. I will download it right away


Best Regards,
Seven

@ Seven

I tried the unstable FTE but i found problems in lightning... i see the realtime shadows but... the whole image is too bright! :/

i think that if only Hammer Of Thiryon had external textures support, it will be perfect :/

can you send me your cfg file?

@ Spike

it is interesting if you create optimal presets for real-time lightning... it's difficult to get the right light in FTE :/

MD3? Great! What about skies? I didnīt notice if it support sky shaders. Or can I replace the old sky textures with new ones from jsHexen? Because I donīt like skyboxes very much, they are lifeless...

Iīm certainly gonna give FTE shot. It has much to offer. Hope this build will work.

@ Mathuzzz

Did you read through or overviewed this thread ?
You will find many many screenshots from golden_boy,
showing exactly what FTE is able to do.
You will see the skyboxes, you will even get links to pages
with tons of skyboxes you can choose from.
You will see the nice alias shadows.
You will also find useful cvars from gb, which improves several things.


@ inkub0

well, my config is almost identical to gbīs.
Except I use Bloom, gb doesnt. I dont use realtime light
because its not perfect yet. Just as you said.
This is something no other H2 engine has. FTE team sure will work on it to enhance it.
What you see in DarkPlaces is not comparable to FTE yet.
But we will see what comes... I have good confidence.

In my opinion, everything what is needed is available in FTE.
The very luxurious things are not perfect yet, but at least are available too.

Biggest advantage: Its updated continuously...!
(and the programmers are nice people)
