Well, then there is no contratiction in the instructions, as they clearly state to unzip into the root folder.

grabeskuehle @ Ultra64 0.2

When there i have found either some people to help the project progress, for example with finding out which of the remaining textures correlate to which surfaces/models ingame, or when at least there is a higher demand for the mod, say at least one hundred people wanting an update.

Yeah, same here, as soon as i catched wind of a Turok 2 remaster coming, i was all in.
Especialy as i wanted to do such a texture mod for it for years anyway.
I am surprised too that it became so silent around this remaster so fast again.
The chances that i pick it up again depends if i find more fans to help with it, like identifying more of the lowres textures, getting more source photos and so on...

As far as i unterstand you, tha answer is: it is a complete replacer, altough it does not replace every single texture yet.

grabeskuehle @ DarkPlaces engine

Darkplaces is for some years now using OpenGL 2.3 as it's main renderpath, which works fine, it just throws up some questions for me:

Could the renderer perform faster on a newer API like OGL 3.2 or Vulkan?
What are the downsides if it would get ported over to an newer API?

Are screenspace effects like depth of field or godrays doable with the current implementation?

For the latter reshade could be used, but it seems rather incompatible for now.

I created a small graphics mod for this game: Moddb.com

grabeskuehle @ A Dark Place - Beta Release + Source Code!

Found two points of critique though:

Running seems to not work consistensly, is there something like stamina involved?
That headbobbing when you run drives me nuts.

Plus that Filmgrain effect works also inconsistent. Sometimes it's gone altogether (which i personaly like very much), other times it gets so grainy you can barely see something else, and other times its just ok.
There should be an option to turn it off altogether though.

How can one add DarkPlaces related Images and Videos here?
At least for me the add function is not available.

grabeskuehle @ Citadel - Now Being Developed in Unity 5 - And Open Source

I almost thought NightDive did buy you up, when i heard of their remake.
Seems not so when i read the comments here.

I personally find it a real bummer that you switched from DarkPlaces to Unity.
DarkPlaces can really use projects such as this to keep it and it's developement alive.
I think it is underestimated in what it can do, how beautiful it can render despite only using ogl 2.3.

grabeskuehle @ A Dark Place - Beta Release + Source Code!

Just played it, very well done! :)
A bummer that it was just given up on, in my opinion there wouldnt miss much for a short but complete game.

I would gladly join in, if you decide picking it up again.
As Nahuel might know i would bring some nice textures with me.
And i am currently experimenting with Photogrammetry, which could enrich the environments even more.

I would just love to join a team that is used too and loves the same engine as i do (DarkPlaces of course <3).

Would i still be allowed to do a texture mod for this beta?

grabeskuehle @ Bentraxx

Hallo Bentraxx,

ich arbeite zurzeit selbst an einer Grafik/Texturmod für Turok 2 namens "Ultra64".
In dem Zusammenhang möchte ich Fragen ob du an einer Kooperation interssiert bist.
Kooperation in dem Sinne das wir uns über Textur/Artdesign austauschen würden, Wissen teilen oder auch Assets tauschen könnten.
Neben Texturen kreire ich zurzeit auch viele fotogrammetrische Modelle, vielleicht ist ja was für dich dabei.

Liebe Grüße

Indeed!
I just uploaded version 0.2: Moddb.com
Main changes are new textures of course.
Enjoy!

Very impressive work!

I would love chat with you, as i am currently working myself on a texture-mod for the Turok 2 remaster.
Maybe we could exchange some of our knowledge?
Whats of special interest for me is how to make some kinds of surfaces from scratch rather than photo-sourcing them.

Greetings from Austria!

grabeskuehle @ Ultra64 Beta Release 1

The final release will take longer as expected to finish.
I have both to find new places for source photos and people who like to contribute or help me search for public domain source material.

Hmmm, this does'n seem to have happened for the others.
You can also try to open and extract it with 7zip, as the installer is in reality just a .7zip archive with unpacker attached.

grabeskuehle @ T2SoE Ultra64

Well, the new Kex Engine makes that all possible at least :)
But for now it looks like there is no real own modding scene for Turok 1 & 2 now.

Some of those things you wish for you could realize yourself maybe, as far as i have seen Turok 2 is very easy to customize via scripts, and it will become even easier when the editor is out!

Indeed. Turok 2 would allow mappers some pretty wicked gameplay options with the talismans, weapons and whatnot.
I for my part have already a map idea :)
