    I didn't mean texture memory. I wrote it wrong. I meant graphics cards may not like having a whole bunch of large textures forced upon them at once. From memory Oblivion, even when forced to highest settings, only used 2048 and 4096 maps for the world normals and sky boxes. Character textures didn't go bigger than 1024.

    Regardless, if your graphics card runs out of memory, your whole PC will probably crash

    You can change them but if you put them too big the graphics card will run out of memory and could crash. Just make sure you only use true power of 2 texture values.
    2,4,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024,2048,4096. Anything else will crash it.

    TEXTUREGROUP_Character=(MinLODSize=128,MaxLODSize= 1024,LODBias=1)
    TEXTUREGROUP_CharacterNormalMap=(MinLODSize=128,Ma xLODSize=512,LODBias=1)
    TEXTUREGROUP_CharacterSpecular=(MinLODSize=128,Max LODSize=512,LODBias=1)

    You also have to take into account both the video card and the directx mip-mapping that is going on when textures are presented for renderring.
    Changing those lines will lead to a game crash.

    My pleasure, hopefully EPIC themselves makes an update that takes away the "cooking"-check when the mod/tweak is meant to be for PCs only.
    They should make a little box that says "PS3 compatible" and if you tick on that box, then the engine should make a "cooking"-check. If you choose to not tick on that "PS3 compatible" box then the engine shouldn´t do a "cooking"-check.

    I hope there´s a way to surpass the "cook"-check.

All the textures are 2048x2048(including my own custom ones) and the game still renders them low res , probably for performance standards. But I think there should be a mut that allows us with strong pcs to see Epic's work and OUR work at full detail instead of pixelated messes with no specular or cubemaps.

  • started a topic 1024 or 2048 textures for the cahracters faces.

    1024 or 2048 textures for the cahracters faces.

    Hello!

    A mod that changes the face textures on the characters to 1024 or 2048 textures. Would be very nice if this could be done.

    Thanks.
Working...
