High resolution textures?
Hey there, making my return to falcon after a long absence and noticed there is an option in the configuration (BMS 4.33u1) for high resolution textures but I am not sure what this refers to or where to find it. Is there somewhere to download higher res terrain (assuming that’s what this is referring to?) or is this already included with the BMS download?
Welcome to the forum
if you launch BMS and open the configurator, then you can set it to use the higher quality textures
otherwise there are some textures around for downloading
I believe the high res selection is for those with lower end PCs who wish to retain some FPS by turning down the resolution. Not 100% sure though.
Description: High resolution textures located in KoreaObj_HiRes and Misctex_HiRes.
It’s now possible to load HiRes textures (if available) instead of the default ones.
If true, BMS will check special “HiRes” texture folders first, and loads files from there. Only if there is no HiRes texture available, it will fallback to the default texture instead.
Creator: BMS The Config gives you a run down in the box to the right, just click on a line…and it tells you what it does or what it’s for.
It’s not terrain, it’s objects, usually if not exclusively vehicles (I’m sure one of the artists will clarify) .
For example Red Dog created a gorgeous ViperDrivers KF-16-52 high res skin. If I have it in my install (\Falcon BMS 4.33 U1\Data\Terrdata\objects\KoreaObj_HiRes folder) and have the High Resolution Textures config option ticked I will see that skin (there is no KF-16-52 high res skin in the vanilla install). If I do not have that config option ticked I will see the normal (low res) skin that came with BMS 4.33.1.
