Maha_x makes his return with an update to his wildly popular Graphical Tweaking mod! For any of you that have just discovered the internet, or have been stranded on a desert island, and are wondering what this mod is all about, then wonder no more! Brilliant Highlights (v0.3.1c) is a modified shader for Doom 3 and RoE that updates Doom's graphics to a more modern day level. As a bonus, this version should correct problems with the new 8000 series GeForce as well.
Some features of this mod include:
- HQ specular highlights
- Power function based falloff
- Dynamic falloff (shinyness)
- Specular map masking
- Per-pixel Halfangle math
- HQ Normalmapping
- Normalmap normalization increases bumpmap quality
- Normalmap filtering reduces specular aliasing
- Other FX
- "Backlights" add realism by casting subtle light behind objects, as in reality, light tends to reflect and shine back from surfaces it hits.
- "Pocket shadows" creates shadows into the dents of the bumpmaps.
