View Full Version : detail textures w/tnt2

4th Feb 2001, 08:38 PM
i've got a creative labs tnt2 ultra running ut in d3d mode. in 32-bit rendering, the detail textures freak out. if i am in an area where you can see a lot of ground, like outside areas and large rooms, the detail textures flicker between being normal, invisible, or sort of cross-hatched. it isn't every texture though, different polygons act differently, so i'll be running around and there are flickering triangles of detail texture all around. this doesn't happen in 16-bit mode, but that just doesn't look as good.

Best I can do is offer you some links that may be of some help.They helped me improve the performance and quality of UT.

For now just keep your color to 16 bit. Also make sure that its set in display panel at 16 bit. Theres such a small difference between 16 and 32 bit you really can't tell the difference. However 16 seems to be a little better. (depending on the situation) Since UT is a fast game you might want to sacrafice some detail for speed. I'm using a 700 Athlon, 128meg, and a voodoo 5 card all tweaked out and I just found that changing the textures from high to med increases my fps by about 10! Big difference

Chech this out
