Brilliant Highlights (0.50b) - File Description  

  NOTE: This file has become outdated and there's a newer / better version available.
  You can still get this file but we suggest you have a look at the NEW / UPDATED VERSION first!





Description:
So there's one more update.

This will however be the last update for a while since I'm running out of ideas for the shader and I'm having other ideas for other mods. So I'll be moving on to work on some different mods for a while.

For the 0.50 version I rewrote the lighting, now the used method is reflection vector rather than the previous halfangle vector. This is a much more accurate method as illustrated in the screenshots. Notice that the screens now compare the 0.50 version to 0.40, not the original Doom 3 shader.

Other subject discussed in the comments has been the perfomance. I made a quick test running my Geforce 6800GT at 1600x1200 4xAA. The demo1 timedemo score fell 14% for the 0.40 version and 20% for the 0.50 version. The 0.50 has probably doubled the fragment program lenght and yet there is only 20% penalty for performance. The modern GPUs are very efficiently pipelined indeed.

Readme File:
====================
Brilliant highlights
====================
Ver 0.50b

###

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

A modified shader for Doom 3 and RoE (and Quake 4 as a separate mod) that enhances the appearance of lights and bumpmaps.

New for version 0.50
--------------------

- HQ specular highlights. Redesigned the halfangle based system to a reflection vector system; true per pixel accuracy.

Features
--------

- Dynamic highlights. Using the original specular mapping from the game, bhmod adjusts the highlight falloff separately per pixel.

- Highlight masking. As 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.

Performance
-----------

On a Geforce 6800GT running at 1600x1200 4xAA BHmod 0.40 was roughly 14% slower and 0.50 was 20% slower than the doom3 default shader.

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

Option A: Create a folder to your Doom 3 directory (name it 'bhmod' for example) and extract this package there. You can then access the mod trough the Doom 3 mods menu. Use this option if you play online (servers wont allow permanent mods)

Option B: Permanent install (more like 'allways enabled'). Extract the file 'z_bhmod.pk4' to your doom3/base 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 doom3/base folder.

Bugs?
-----

In certain situations objects can recieve highlights from a light that is actually behind the object. Not too common tough.

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 Doom 3 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.
