Meet with cryengine

I have taken some photos to use as textures. A new manhole cover, I love it XD

Yesterday I opened the editor after many months. Even had a problem with a library (fatal error!) and I had to reinstall visual basic 2008 components  :-S

After that, the editor view appeared all black, but I've solved it. I think the editor missed me and was angry with me. After solving the problem I had forgotten the use of menus and buttons, but after an hour everything is as before. The love is back.

Alien Vessel loaded and I fixed some minor problems with decals that were still misaligned. There are two places where the game pauses to load content: starting the level (just walking 3 meters), and in the ramp into the park (just after you lift the gate). I'm trying to eliminate that pauses. Changed deferred check for some graffitis. Increased viewing distance of a blood decal that appeared suddenly in a car park wall.

I also added parallax mapping to the metal floor, interior walls and in ceiling in some military containers.

  5. Hey Maldo saludos de un compatriota! Creo que los links de decarga se han caido, puede ser o es algo de mi pc? Tu mod es fantastico, pero se me jodio el disco duro y querria tenerlo de nuevo, los links no funcionan creo . Eres un crack, ojala la gente de crytek te eche el ojo y te fichen para Crysis 3 :)

    1. You can always turn it off. And also: Tessellation at least on an Nvidia card has relatively none to a small performance hit. The Tessellation scales in the same way LOD objects do anyways. The farther away it is,the less tessellated it is.

      On my 460 I was able to play using Maldo's Textures, and a custom config that changed his lesser IQ settings CVARS back to the default Ultra levels and beyond @30FPS @1598X900 perfectly. And it still looks great upscaled on my TV to 1080p.

      Maybe AMD should just stop making Shitty cards with terrible DX11 and Tessellation performance. Owait, they did. HD 7000 Series. So, don't blame Crytek. Blame AMD

  8. Hello MaLDo, I have a question:
    in the final version of your mod, will you include Black Fire's Mod 2? I mean, this one:

    http://www.crydev.net/viewtopic.php?f=308&t=71027

    I think that your final HD Mod 3.0c and this one together would create the bes lookingg game EVER :)
    Keep us posted, see you :)

    Let me know wha do you think about this :)

  9. BlackFire is gone (forever?), so i doubt there will ever be an update for his mod or a patch for Maldo HD Tex v3.0c.

    BUT, there is Quality Mod v1.8, which is simply great, developed by ShonE, who has already created a patch for MaldoHD Tex v3 and will update it to MaldoHD Tex v3.0c when it is released. :)

    1. BlackFire Mod 2 already integrates the Quality mod by ShonE, but it also adds some great new textures.
      I saw the thread on crydev, and there is a way to integrate BlackFire Mod 2 with MaLDo's mod (he did i with the 3.0b config), so I think we'll manage to use that guide to do the same with the 3.0c :)

  10. Blackfire Mod adds 4 bad textures if what Maldo says is true and Quality Mod has much much much progressed through time.
    Now, it beats Blackfire Mod 10/1
