This is a set of modified shaders for Star Trek Legacy. While Legacy was advertised as a "next-gen" game it only had shaders 2.0 support on the PC, a few 3.0 shaders on the Xbox 360 version, and even then it was diluted with shader 1.1 and 2.0 commands.
This mod will give you a set of shaders that have been rigged for FULL shaders 3.0 support, no 2.0 or 1.1 blending here.
Some of the features are: softer/realistic lighting, enhanced bump-map and specular highlight effects as well as an overall increase in visual quality.
Here is an interesting little addon by alexraptor. As said above this shaders pack gives an increase in visual quality, the way Legacy was meant to show off its "next-gen" graphics.
Recommendation here from alex is that you make sure you have the right graphics card before you try this nifty tool.
Compliments go to alexraptor for taking the time and effort to bring legacy's graphics up yet another notch, bear in mind this is a Beta, so in the unlikely event that it should not work on your system, (just to re-emphasise), make sure you back up the stock shaders, then you will have something to fall back on.
Star Trek: Legacy™ Star Trek Legacy, Shaders 3.0 Beta Created by: Alexraptor E-Mail: alex AT alexraptor DOT com Site: http://alexraptor.com/ ___________________________________________________ description: This is a set of modified shader files that add shaders 3.0 support to Legacy, for those who want to squeeze a little extra out of Legacy's graphics. Please note, that this is only recommended for GeForce 7900GT cards and equivalent ATI cards and up. Since so many different shader commands interact I have for the time being just replaced all Pixel and Vertex shader calls with Shaders 3.0 and therefore this version is to be considered a Beta. Because of this it is imperative that your graphics card be shader model 3.0 compliant or else you may experience serious problems. A backup of the original shaders folder is recommended as shader modifications are NOT multiplayer compatible(unless the other player is using the same set of shaders). Known bugs: None that I am aware of. ____________________________________________________ Installation: Simply unzip the contents of the zip file into your legacy folder, overwrite when prompted. Then proceed to delete ALL ".fxo" files in the shaders folder. ____________________________________________________ Legal: This material is not made or supported by Bethesda or MAD DOC Software.
