Low Detail Shader

Low Detail Shader

Postby Rachael » Wed Oct 11, 2017 8:20 am


"Low Detail Shader when?" I get frequently asked. Probably as a joke, who knows...

So - here it is.

Use "gl_lowdetail" cvar in console to turn it on and off.

It emulates the effect of pressing F5 in Vanilla Doom, except it's not resolution aware (it simply pixelates to 160x200) - didn't see any reason to do that, anyway.

You can relive the old vanilla days by typing...
Code: Select allExpand view
bind f5 "toggle gl_lowdetail"

... in the console. (Default F5 binding: "menu_display")

Memories best relived with the following cvars also set:
Code: Select allExpand view
vid_scalemode 2
gl_tonemap 5
gl_lightmode 8
gl_bandedswlight true
r_vanillatrans 1
gl_lights false

Wow, that screenshot is dreadful in exactly the way it's meant to be.

And with a low-end graphics computer, you can now also relive the days of owning the peasant-tier 286 while trying to run Doom on it! XD

Good stuff Rachael. That pixelated blob of mess looks ugly - and I mean that as a compliment. ;)

Thank you for making this add-on. It's fun to play some modern mods in GZDoom as if it was 1994 again. :)

I think this is pretty cool. BTW i've added a couple of new low detail modes to my engines (3x2 and 4x4) but they are not in the releases yet.

You can execute several commands in a key bind, and there is a play sound command... even tho I don't think that particular sound is defined in SNDINFO.

ZzZombo, I tried what you said and it works:
Code: Select allExpand view
bind f5 "toggle gl_lowdetail; playsound switches/normbutn"
