High Res Textures?

Postby overdhill » Wed Aug 21, 2013 2:20 am

I see a lot of high res texture listed like the ones here:

Should I add these to my D2X-XL fresh install?

Yes, you definitely should :D

They are not included in the basic install so that updates are not a large download every time.

You will need the latest version of 7zip to unpack them. Unpack them into your default d2x-xl install folder.

They should end up like this eg C:\Descent2\textures.

If you also grab the hires models, be sure too adjust the ini file lines to

;enable usage of hires models if present
-hires_models 1
;enable usage of hires textures if present
-hires_textures 1


so that they will actually show :D

Enjoy!

Thanks

I noticed that when I extracted the three high rez ship models some textures were the same names. Not sure which ones I should keep.

These models share those textures. They are included with each one in case someone doesn't install all models.

I noticed some sound and music updated files on the download page. Which ones would you recommend I install for D2X-XL?

And other things I should ad as well?

I would get the hires sound files (make sure you check the inin file is set right) the music is a personal choice. Normally I don't play with it on but thats up to you.
