Shadow Warrior Re-texturing Project
I had a spare few hours for the first time in ages tonight so I thought I would test out the hightile option.

And just like in duke 3d it worked great.


unzip the lot to your shadow warrior folder.

Re: High tile test
Excellent. What programs do you use to extract/see the original textures? If I had that program, I'd start making my own. All I need is the numbers of the originals, and what they looked like.

Re: High tile test
Inoticed that the uppercase blue letters are the same as in Duke, so I am will go ahead and do high res versions of the lowercase which should be ready in a few days.

Dukeres works, but it displays with inverted colors.

I also found an openGL viewer/extrator but it requires the .art to be extracted and the palette.dat. It displays correctly, but the UI is inferior to dukeres.

Re: High tile test
On the first level, go down the stairs outside and to the end room. There should be some monsters hiding behind boxes with the replaced texture.

You may try GRPViewer (click the link in my sig). All You have to do is extract "palette.dat" from "sw.grp", copy it to GRPViewer's directory replacing the existing one. GRPV will load this palette on startup.

You should make Gviewer to support jfDuke and jfSW, Roma Loom.

i've made more than 650 highres textures for jfSW. only problem is that i cannot post them because they are modifyed version of original textures! http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/frown.gif

also, this picture features 1st model for jfSW (model is same as in jfduke, but with different skin)

It would be cool if we could the high res texture a sortof anime look. Add to the style of the game a little bit.

Just a thought.

Re: High tile test
Hm this is the first time I've tried to recreate a texture in hi-res.. I haven't made anything for Duke's hi-res pack which I'm ashamed about since I REALLY enjoy playing it, so I'm trying to make myself useful with sw instead http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif


I overdid the blur a bit there.. but still I think it's nice for a first try http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif Comments and such are welcome! It tiles, btw http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...mlins/grin.gif

Parkar 04-07-2005 02:44 PM

Re: High tile test
Looks good except like you said its a bit blurry. I think you should try to fix that. A texture like that one almost can't get to sharp. If you made it using layers andhave the bars arounf it on separate layer try to redo them and make them realy sharp. After testing ingame you can add a bit of blurryness to it if it looks so sharp it looks cut together.

TerminX 04-07-2005 02:52 PM

Re: High tile test
Just remember guys, the same rules from the Duke retexturing project apply here -- no content from 3DR, period.

Geoffery, that texture looks nice. A bit too blurry as has been noted, however. Nonetheless, keep up the good work!

Ras 04-07-2005 03:21 PM

Re: High tile test
It's probably one of those, "If you have to ask, forget it" deals, but is there anywhere to get pointers about making textures to work with the ports? Maybe something in the "sprightly appearance" thread?

Parkar 04-07-2005 03:33 PM

Re: High tile test
download that hightile test further up in this thread and stufy how its made. There is probably several posts on it I know I have writen a couple so just search for my name in the duke3dsource forum, and add the key word "duke3d.def". It should not take to long to find this way.

Ecmaster76 04-07-2005 05:55 PM

Re: High tile test
Damn, uppercases are slightly different after all.

Will have blue font and small fonts this weekend probably.

Ras 04-07-2005 06:53 PM

Re: High tile test
Thanks, Parkar, I'll give that a try.

Geoffrey 04-08-2005 12:56 AM

Re: High tile test
Thanks for the advice http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif I've made all the edges sharper, made the 'background' ( everything besides the tubes and the main plate ) a tad darker and I've fixed some tile problems in the corners.


Dandy! And finally I've resized it to 128X128 because
a) 256 is a bit big for a ventplate
b) it washes away my ****ups http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif


I don't know which size looks better so I posted both http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif

Parkar 04-08-2005 01:14 AM

Re: High tile test
looks better, I think the shading on the bars is still a bit blurry. If you used photoshops bevel layer effect then try to change its mode from soft to chisel hard or chisel soft.

When it comes to size, I asume the original is a 64x64. If we are going by the same quality standard as in duke we would make it a 256x256 image. Resampleing the image down like you did is a pretty coomon practice, Infact I do that on all my textures. On this texture I would have worked 512x512 and then scale down to 256x256 when done.

Geoffrey 04-08-2005 01:38 AM

Re: High tile test
I'll start editing again then http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif

In the meantime I've made textures #0003 and #0004:



I'll try to make the shading in #0002 sharper, like I did in texture #0004 http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif

Edit: this is the final version of this texture I'm making; trying to fix things in one place is only making it look faker in other places http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif If anyone wants to re-do this one later that's ok http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthread...lins/smile.gif

Btw, just to be sure, using textures/ parts of textures from free texture sites is ok right?

Only if said source textures are explicitly stated to be public domain.
