Problems with HD Resource Pack
2015 Feb 16 edited 2015 Aug 17 in Addons for Heretic
I'm having an issue getting the high def texture pack to run correctly. Most of my issues seem to be slowdowns and frame rate loss. Not sure why im having such a hard time getting it to run smooth.Any suggestions? What info do you need from me?
One possible reason for this kind of problems is OpenGL texture compression. If it's enabled you might want to disable it in the frontend (or "-notexcomp" command line option).

I believe I tried without texture compression and same results.
Anyways as you can see I have 2 versions of the HD pack. The 1.01 works well and plays smooth but you cannot see your weapons. If you turn the renderer to vanilla you can but you loose the HD of course. Now if you use the newer HD 1.1 everything is improved and the weapons are fixed but the game does not run smooth anymore. Is there an even newer version of the HD pack that I do not have that fixes these issues?
I just tried hexen with the 1.31 and its the same thing. Runs a little choppy and hidden weapons.
It is just possible that 1.1 includes additional and/or more detailed effects over 1.01 that naturally, will reduce performance more (you have stated that 1.1 features improved effects and such).
You may well have to compromise; use the older 1.01 or 1.1 with some specific visual effects of your choice reduced or turned off completely via the renderer menu (choose to edit the renderer profile, rather than just selecting it).
On my system it runs just as good as 1.01 did, but look a lot better, it seems that it even has new light effects. Make sure your texture compression setting is OFF, otherwise that can cause major stutter.
I also had to play with rend-hud-fov-shift cvar to get weapons to display correctly. With 1.01 I had it set to 0, but apparently 1.1 is already made with widescreen in mind, and at 0 the weapons stick out too much, so I set it to 30 and it looks perfect.
