NFX - FX Texture Overhaul for TSL

6 posts in this topic

So what is it?

 

NFX - FX Texture Overhaul for TSL is my texture overhaul of all the effects in Kotor 2. This applies to effects such as muzzle flashes, lens flares, snowflakes, fire/smoke fx, explosions, etc. I will continue to update this thread with my progress with the project and identifying textures. Below is an example of a high resolution remade muzzle as well as flares. The result is reduced blur, improved detail. I am kinda cheesed that there were only a couple people who took a hit at the FX textures, and they were simply upscaled. Therefore I would like to finish this re-make of all the FX! The goal is to keep the vanilla feel, without modifying too many tones or colors, unless necessary.

Screenshots below (bare in mind when I uploaded these I forgot about the alpha channels, future updates will look better, all alpha channels will be re-done)

Also, anybody willing to shed some light on the description of the textures from FX and what they do in-game would be great, since the naming is strange, I would gladly appreciate it! Textures I have extracted the originals using KotorTool, under swpc_tex_tpa.erf "F"

 

It's a bit tough because there's a lot of trial and error for me to discover which exact texture I'm editing in-game.

 

Anyways, it's still very early but I wanted to let you guys know what I'm working on! Cheers!

Hey! I did more than just "upscale" my muzzleflash textures.. *grumble..

 

 

 

 

Seriously though, I wish more people focused on the finer details such as all of the effects.

 

Incidentally, were you going to work on the explosion cloud/ smoke as well? I'm certain some plugins will produce great results with them.

Yes, I have been working on fireball explosion clouds, currently working on the fireball fx done by droid flamethrower, poison, plasma, etc. I assume they are also used elsewhere. I make edits as I go and test them in-game. It's a strange one since the texture is animated by 16 or 25 frames, so I think the fireball and smoke will be the most challenging.
