I was wondering what the general opinion of the best -mix- of graphic mods out there? I tried combining Fakefactory stuff with some other skins and the HDR mod for original HL2 but I got a lot of purple checkerboard shader errors. The HDR doesn't work with my video card or something, I guess. Can anyone recommend any other graphics/skins/render enhancements for HL2 that might mix into each other without problems?
Hm okay, I thought you guys here might know a thing or two about modding this game. Looks like it's as good as it's going to get for now.
I just recently got the game myself. Unfortunately, almost all of the really good graphical enhancements are designed for graphics cards that support HDR. If you don't have one of those, then your out of luck.
I've got a Geforce 4 Mx440 myself. I must say, the high res settings look pretty good. My only problem is the "clipping" distance. Crates, guns, and other objects dissapear too soon. I can never find a dropped item, unless it is next to the person who dropped it.
