Brilliant Highlights NG (v1.0) - File Description  

  NOTE: This file has become outdated and there's a newer / better version available.
  You can still get this file but we suggest you have a look at the NEW / UPDATED VERSION first!





Description:
This is an update to 's Brilliant Highlights (0.60b) mod, which is a modified shader for QuakeIV that gives high quality dynamic highlights and enhaces the 3D look of the surfaces.

    Some of the tweaks/changes included in this download are:
    • Dynamic highlights -- Using the original specular mapping from the game, my shader adjusts the highlight falloff separately per pixel.
    • Highlight masking -- Like in the built-in shader, the specular map is also used to mask the highlights from less shiny surfaces.
    • Compatibility -- Any hardware capable of the ARB 2.0 path can run this mod.
    • Performance -- BH mod favours math power over memory bandwidth as this is the current trend.
    • -- Removed plastic look & added Metallic look !!! (by DFM).


This is a must have for every QuakeIV gamer that is interesrted in enhancing the already amazing graphics and details found in this game!

Have a look at the screenshots below!



Refer to the readme for more information.

What is it?
-----------

A modified shader for Quake 4 that gives high quality dynamic highlights and enhaces the 3D look of the surfaces.

- Dynamic highlights. Using the original specular mapping from the game, my shader adjusts the highlight falloff separately per pixel.

- Highlight masking. Like in the built-in shader, the specular map is also used to mask the highlights from less shiny surfaces.

- Removed plastic look & added Metallic look !!! (by DFM).

- Compatibility. Any hardware capable of the ARB 2.0 path can run this mod.

- Performance. BH mod favours math power over memory bandwidth as this is the current trend.

# Brilliant highlights ver 1.0 3.7.2007
#===============================================
#
# Version history
# ---------------
#
# 1.0 # Removed plastic look & added Metallic look !!! (by DFM).
#
# 0.60 # Lost cause makes a return, also a backlight idea...
#
# 0.50 # Redesigned specular lights to reflection vector model
#
# 0.40 # Redesigned whole lighting, now specular is independent of diffuse
#
# 0.31 # Finally a working result combining with .30 and .21 strenghts
# Also, no boosting or overshooting needed anymore
#
# 0.30 # Rewamped result compositing to MUL based (no glow in the dark)
#
# 0.21 # Spied the Quake4 shader and found some performance tweaks
# Few performance tweaks for my own code as well
#
# 0.20 # Finalized the pow range and overshoot/boost values
#
#-----------------------------------------------

So how do I install?
--------------------

Extract the folder named glprogs to your q4base folder and "Dynamic highlights NG" will be used for all the Quake 4's mods that do not use any other glprogs folder. The mod will then be automatically (and allways) enabled.

Bugs?
-----

Sometimes you might see yellow or green objects that are not supposed to look that way. Very rare tough. Just keep in mind, this is a beta release, it has been only tested in a number of levels.

You can use only the interaction.vfp, removing the other files that are inside glprogs folder, but the interaction.vfp file !

Warning!...:
------------
Remember that the glprogs folder is not a MOD folder, it's a folder to be added into q4base folder or into any other folder mod, ok !!!

What else?
----------

For the more tweaker in heart; you can adjust the minimum and maximum power and the minimum mask within the shader. The comments describe how.

Feedback?
---------

Sure; mail me at maha_x@hotmail.com

Disclaimer?
-----------

See Quake 4 eula. Also, if you want to use my mod, ask. Not that I wanted to say no, just that I know. And credit me where required.
