All I can say is:
This looks even better now...
That Aside, the performance started to degrade in some places.
But it still looks stunning.
A fine trade I think lol

thanks dude! Loving your screenshots, I hope you don't mind if I steal one or two of em for the OP. Yeah, unfortunately smothering everything with dynamic lighting like it's maple syrup was always gonna result in something of a performance hit - I do hope it's not too severe though. My toaster still runs everything pretty much ok (the hamster has been more tired lately...), if you're not already try putting the texture filter mode on None (nearest mipmap) or somesuch, I find that tends to help with PBR shenanigans.

I dont mind, use them as example if you want.
and I did some tweaks to my settings and now is running smoothly, reduced a bit the internal resolution and disabled shadowmaps.
Cheers dude, your work is appreciated!

cool, great to hear. I don't use shadowmaps either for what it's worth.

Appreciate you taking the time to comment and the screengrabs, OP is updated!!

New update:

- fixed some minor issues with the nukage pools

- reduced the number of point lights in some areas for a slight performance increase

- various other small things too numerous to mention

EDIT: updated to 1.6A, which fixes a couple of small texture issues

As far as E1 goes I feel like this is finally more or less in a state of completion, (though I felt the same way several updates ago, gah...) any comments/criticisms/insults/whatever are welcome. Updated link in the OP.

Just posted a minor update mainly to fix a bug with the elevator in E1M4 that had somehow managed to escape my notice till now. Also sorted a couple of texture misalignments and an aggressively stupid placement of a floor lamp, amongst other small tweaks. (EDIT 22/05: another small update to tweak the lighting a bit in E1M7 - so much for this thing being "complete" :roll:) Link in the OP.

Re: Enhanced E1 - now with Club Doom! - update 06/06

Post by wran »

update:

- due to overwhelming demand*, the classic PSX level Club Doom is now playable! I've stuck it somewhere near the end of E1M8

- a few other bits and pieces

Link in the usual place, any feedback welcome.

*actually in all honesty absolutely no-one was asking for this.

EDIT: 1.6E fixes some misalignments and makes the cages look slightly less shit.

just updated to fix another bit of geometry in E1M5 I somehow managed to bork (maybe "glitched E1" might've been a better name for this thing), also to illuminate some of the more annoyingly dark areas.

Thanks! I haven't really decided if I'm going to tackle the rest of the episodes yet, this was fun to do but it also drove me batshit insane at times haha
