WHAT THIS IS ABOUT:
10
-------------------
11
This file contains updated data for the Duke3D High-Resolution Pack (HRP).
12
It features a modified Polymost HRP for use with the Megaton Polymost renderer
13
on top of the default Polymer HRP.
14
 
707 leod 15
Basically, this means: First get the full HRP 5.4 (r5.4.674), the latest update
639 leod 16
pack (if available), then this file.
17
 
18
It is possible to run the Megaton HRP without this pack, using the Megaton
19
command line option -hduke3d_hrp_megaton.def. But this won't work correctly in
20
conjunction with certain mods, as well as addons like
21
DukeDC, NWinter, and Vacation.
22
 
23
 
24
HOW TO USE IT:
25
--------------
26
 
27
[ For single player games I highly recommend using the EDuke32 executable and
28
  the normal HRP instead of Megaton. ]
29
 
30
Drop the HRP Override Pack into the gameroot folder within your Megaton
31
installation like the HRP zipfile itself.
32
Add
707 leod 33
  -gduke3d_hrp.zip -gduke3d_megaton_hrp_override-5.4.674.zip
639 leod 34
to your command line or use the included batch file to play with the HRP
35
 
36
 
37
KNOWN PROBLEMS:
38
---------------
707 leod 39
The Megaton executable (1.4.9 stable) is based on a rather old JFDuke version
639 leod 40
and therefore doesn't support all Polymost HRP features correctly:
41
 
656 leod 42
 - "animtilerange" and "setuptilerange" are unsupported
639 leod 43
 - the maphack system is unsupported  and has  been disabled in this pack
44
 - frozen models don't work correctly and have been disabled in this pack
45
 - skyboxes      don't work correctly and have been disabled in this pack
656 leod 46
 - pickup models and first person weapon models may (partiallly) disappear
47
   at certain viewing angles or sector boundaries.
639 leod 48
 
49
There is nothing that can be done about these issues other than updating the
50
Megaton executable's Polymost renderer code.
51
 
656 leod 52
Except: The DN3DF version of this pack replaces the first person weapon models
53
        with 2D sprites from "Duke Nukem 3D: Forever" made by Wesker500 aka
54
        xMobilemux. (Golden skin for pistol pickup by Daniel262b.)

IMPORTANT:
58
----------
707 leod 59
This override pack is meant for the HRP v5.4 (=r5.4.674)!
639 leod 60
 
61
 
656 leod 62
Duke in D.C. HRP (v1.62):
639 leod 63
-------------------------
64
To avoid a messed up level stat screen, make sure that this override pack gets
707 leod 65
recognized after the DC HRP pack or use the included DC-HRP batch file.
