High Resolution / True Color Textures Mod v1.0
« on: March 10, 2013, 11:15:09 AM »

Hi Folks,

this is the "High Resolution / True Color Textures Mod" Package. This is the release version of the WIP mod posted here (old WIP thread): http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,28127.0.html
It enables you to use Textures with HD resolutions (currently max. 2048 x 2048 pixels, 4096 x 4096 on your own risk) and true color, even for custom aircraft skins from the "PaintSchemes" folder.
A big hand to carsmaster for his permission to include his high res DLLs into this mod package and to Glynn (SAS~GJE52) for providing sample custom skins for some Spitfires in HD!

Please find the first public Release version v1.0, for download below:

High Resolution True Color Texture Mod Package v1.0 (Mediafire)
High Resolution True Color Texture Mod Package v1.0 (Mission4Today)

The regarding Manual can be found here:
High Resolution True Color Texture Mod Manual (Mediafire)

This mod is supposed to be compatible with any game version from 4.09m onwards, regardless which modpack (DBW, UP, HSFX, SAS Modact, Histomod, whatever else) you use.

Credits:
  • HD Texture DLLs (il2_core.dll and il2_corep4.dll) by carsmaster. A big hands to carsmaster for his HD texture DLLs which made this mod package possible at all.
  • True Color Texture Mod by SAS~Storebror.
  • Sample HD skins by SAS~GJE52.
  • Original game files by 1C/Maddox.

Many thanks for your work!!!

Regards!

P.s. Now I'm a little bit confused about the various carsmaster's dll versions: is included in this last one version the "Light in the IL2" mod (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,14789.0.html)?

there are some functions which work only at versions 4 09 or 4 10 1.
In "Light" it is necessary to use EVERYTHING! ! ! 4 DLL files.
You make all other experiments at own risk.
If it is necessary for you simplicity, use
High Resolution/True Color Textures Mod
Probably then I will update(bug fix, more FPS) also "Light", but it all the same won't work as a set at versions higher than 4 10 1.
"Light" is the version for "gourmets" ;D
Excuse for my bad English

EDIT

I recommend to make experiment to use from
Light in the IL2 (beta) my Sun.tga file of 2048x2048 pixels in size.
Way to the file:
Maps \_ Tex\Sun\Sun.tga

And my files
glare01.tga_asis  and  glare02.tga_asis(2048x2048 pixels)
Way to the file:
effects\sunglare\glare01.tga_asis  and glare02.tga_asis

Is there any difference between this release version and the WIP version? Should I download and installing this new version or it doesnt worth?

I recommend to use this version.
This version has fixes little bugs.
A little more FPS.
There is still a "light"( the easy)version.

I reworked Skippers first post in the "Light in the IL2" topic to have carsmasters latest versions available on the first glance.
