Morning Tech Bits

11. Re: Morning Tech Bits Feb 14, 2012, 13:09 DG
The textures only replace certain things. The video kept showing things which hadn't been replaced - the same things several times. There's also the loss in the video encoding. They didn't show any welded weapons, which are often the biggest improvement, and didn't show much up really close.

They also didn't show the camp fires with their pink logs because Beth messed up the pack. Apparently they also messed up the pack in other ways, like there are some HD textures which are put in the wrong directories so aren't loaded, and even some cases where they've provided low res textures replacing higher res ones. And there's some redundant files in there too.

Detailed analysis and ways to fix it yourself at

The pack is nice, but not a must-have so don't be disheartened if your card can't run it (I gather the main thing is video memory), especially since usually there's a mix of resolutions on display which some may find looks worse than all being the lower res. It does seem to have been thrown out rather slap-dash though, and worse, it doesn't load like a regular mod so modders are going to have to work around it rather than rely on the simple load-order.
