File Description

This is a mod that changes the shaders to improve highlights and the overall look of the game.

What's changed: - Redesigned lighting processes the specular highlights separately from the diffuse lighting. This allows the highlight to position differently from the diffuse which can lead to more realism. - Added a new splash screen.

Ver 0.40b

###

What is it?
-----------

A modified shader for Quake 4 (and D3/RoE as a separate mod) that gives high quality dynamic highlights and enhaces the 3D look of surfaces.

- Dynamic highlights. 	Using the original specular mapping from the game, my shader adjusts the highlight falloff separately per pixel.
 
- Highlight masking. 	Like in the built-in shader, the specular map is also used to mask the highlights from less shiny surfaces. 

- Compatibility. 	Any hardware capable of the ARB 2.0 path can run this mod. 

- Performance. 		BH mod favours math power over memory bandwidth as this is the current trend. 


So how do I install?
--------------------

Option A: Create a folder to your Quake 4 directory (name it "bhmod" for example) and extract this package there. You can then access the mod trough the Quake 4 mods menu. Use this option if you play online (servers wont allow permanent mods)

Option B: Permanent install (not totally!). Extract the file "z_bhmod.pk4" to your quake4/q4base folder. The mod will then be automatically (and allways) installed.

Uninstall?
----------

Option A: Delete the folder.

Option B: Delete file "z_bhmod.pk4" from your Quake4/q4base folder.

Bugs?
-----

Slight anomalities with coloring/lighting.

What else?
----------

For the more tweaker in heart; you can adjust several variables within the shader. The comments describe how.

Feedback?
---------

Sure; mail me at maha_x [AT] hotmail [DOT] com

Disclaimer?
-----------

See Quake 4 eula. Also, if you want to use my mod, ask. Not that I wanted to say no, just that I know. And credit me where required.
