I had some extra time this morning so i took a stab at making an updated mjhires.acs.cs file, here it is:

http://ns2.pu.net/upscaled/for-1.40/...s.upscaled.zip

in doing so i noticed that mj had put in some upscaled DOX textures but I had overlooked doing those with the upscaler. I will take a look at adding those later today.

also there are a small number of duplicate files - i kept only the first (Entities) entry.

I've upscaled the DOX textures with the upscaler (4x) and added them to my download area.

For 1.40 you'd download DOX_Textures.zip and put it in your dox\ folder replacing the original DOX_Textures.zip that you wisely made a backup copy of first.

I've updated mjhires.acs.cs.upscaled.z ip to include the size declarations for the upscaled DOX textures.

For 1.1998 x64 configurations you'd download DOX_Textures.vol and replace your existing DOX_Textures.vol.

http://ns2.pu.net/upscaled/for-1.40/DOX_Textures.zip
http://ns2.pu.net/upscaled/for-1.40/...s.upscaled.zip
http://ns2.pu.net/upscaled/for-1.199...X_Textures.vol

We really need to come up with a better hack for 1.40 to display these.

Really amazing to walk around and look at how pretty it looks.

Got this working with the TribesHDv2 config after fixing a few things in the acs.
Tribes HD v2 by DaJ4ck3L - TribalWar Forums

I turned off DEP, VSync and set the affinity of the process to only use one of my cpu cores.
Some of the non-standard HD textures that have already been made for 1.4 look a little bit better than some of these ones so I think I will put together a custom config.

For T:A I downloaded an AA shader that smoothed edges out nicely. I will have to see if I can find something similar that will be compatible with T1.

A new mjhires.acs.cs file is up - the order of the entries is different. I am trying to automate something that is automation resistant.

There are still some things which display wrong and the file on the link will be updated from time to time.

there must be some issues or limitations in the 1.40/hrfix stuff - i can't seem to make it work on some of the images.

a much better approach to hrfix is really needed in the 1.40 space. for example a default scale followed by a list of exceptions to the default scale. also it should work all the time.

these DOX textures were upscaled with a newer version of the upscaler. it looks to be doing a lot better with some of the more analogy images - so the free lunch is improving! the upscaled analogy images could be touched up by a human artist.

in the earlier version of upscaler it was easy to veto the upscaled analog images. it was a lot less easy with the current version.

Groove could you put this into a version of Retro 1.41, please? Also what's the deal with entities having a folder and a .zip with different files on most configs? How do I properly add the upscaled entities for 1.4?

Anything in the entities folder will overwrite what's in the zip. So you would want to put any higher-res textures found in Entities.zip in the Entities folder. If that makes sense.

in theory, yes

in practice, not so much

it SHOULD choose files outside the .zip first, but the more that are outside the more likely it is to ****up, especially on 2nd map loads (first load seems much more reliable for whatever reason)

this has been a longtime problem (like forever) and results in say, on the 2nd map load u get 1 band of the sky being from inside the .zip and the rest outside

(just using sky as an example, as it was the most commonly replaced textures - same effect for all replacements when there are 2 of them)

for reliable replacements, you want 1 copy of the texture, inside its .zip



BaseEncrypt, if I find some time I'll do up an add-on pack but thats a big IF, sorry

just download bugs' .zips, replace your existing .zips with them and add mjhires.acs and the plugin

retro config already has the pluginloader etc so that's all you should need to do

this explains why some skins/textures are different from time to time on same config, damn

or conversely you can opt for a zip-less/vol-less configuration and have everything in the folder and no zip/vol file

on server configurations I ran into this with scripts.vol and a script that i was working on in the folder. sometimes the server would exec the folder script and sometimes the server would exec the script in the volume. very annoying bug. i chose to get rid of scripts.vol and have a folder with all of the server scripts in it.

and now that we've run into scaling issues with vols/zips at 2048x2048 i've been thinking its time for this volume technique to just die and be replaced by a remote virtual disk with a local cache. this would kill two birds with one stone, scaling and auto update.
