Edit: Bah, can't read apparently.

Nighteyes, could you upload 3D shockwaves in 1024^2 regardless of what you said in your first post, pretty please?

sorry... the 2D version was made at 1024, and the 3D one is made from it, its a 1/4 of the 2D one... I tried making it higher rez than that, but my poor laptop rendered it out the whole night, and any kind of editing on it was so slow I couldn't bare it... so these are the shockwaves we shall have for the time being... :(

Man, these look awesome  :eek2:  Remind me a lot of the cool shockwaves from WCP, only that yours are much more prettier and sharper :)

That's too bad. In 3.6.12 MV_Advanced both shockwaves are in 1024^2 DXT1 because it provides best compromise between quality and memory usage. In lower resolution there can be noticeable pixellation larger the generated shockwave is.

Re: RELEASE: some new HIGHREZ shockwaves :)
I placed all the files into mymod/data/effects, but it still displays the normal MVP shockwave. Does the EFF file go to effects/ and is it INDEED only 35 bytes?

If you are using the 3D shockwaves, the files are going in mymod/data/maps... I made the same mistake. I read the first post too fast  :doubt:

But if you are using the 2d ones...  :confused:

I just tried myself the 2D for testing, and I had the same problem.
Then I de-activate the "3D shockwave" flag in the launcher and it just work fine. Maybe you have it checked ?

Aah what a treat! The ED team is cool. Works perfectly and looks nice. I used the 2D shockwaves.

I like fury's choice of color. Looks more realistic to me, even though it might not objectively be the case. I'm so accustomed to living in atmosphere.

I am going to invent the term 'Psychological Realism' to adequately describe this phenomenon of the human condition.


Well put, as I too have experienced that particular phenomenon.

I can't get the 3d ones to work. The EFF file is in there renamed to shockwave3D-glow.eff, I've got the files in mediavps_3612/data/maps...oddly enough 2d works fine.

EDIT: I'm a huge ****ing liar, they work fine, thankyou so much!  :)

Has um, somebody already converted the 2D blue shockwaves to DDS yet? I'd like a copy if that's the case >.> <.<

Can I make a request for pink shockwaves? ;7

 
Re: RELEASE: some new HIGHREZ shockwaves :)
So I did a mash up of the orange and the white 2d shock waves and I think it looks pretty cool. I used orange for the first 60 frames and then white for the rest. Kind of makes the shock wave look like it's being lit by the flash point.
