What is it?
-----------

A modified shader for Doom 3 and RoE that updates Doom's graphics to a more modern day level.

This new version should correct problems with the new 8000 series Geforces.


Features
-----------------------------------

# HQ specular highlights #
- Power function based falloff
- Dynamic falloff (shinyness)
- Specular map masking
- Per-pixel Halfangle math

# HQ Normalmapping #
- Normalmap normalization increases bumpmap quality
- Normalmap filtering reduces specular aliasing

# Other FX #
- "Backlights" add realism by casting subtle light behind objects, as in reality, light tends to reflect and shine back from surfaces it hits.
- "Pocket shadows" creates shadows into the dents of the bumpmaps.


Beta status
------------

Untested for Radeon hardware! Should work "by the specs" but this hasn't insured anything in the past.


So how do I install?
--------------------

Option A: Create a folder to your Doom 3 directory (name it "bhmod" for example) and extract this package there. You can then access the mod trough the Doom 3 mods menu. Use this option if you play online (servers wont allow permanent mods)

Option B: Permanent install (more like "allways enabled"). Extract the file "z_bhmod.pk4" to your doom3/base folder. The mod will then be automatically (and allways) installed.

RoE: Extract the file "z_bhmod.pk4" to your doom3/d3xp folder.

Brilliant Bloom update:

Copy the interactions.vfp from this package's glprogs folder to your brilliant bloom's glprogs (overwriting the old file).


Uninstall?
----------

Option A: Delete the folder you created above.

Option B: Delete file "z_bhmod.pk4" from your doom3/base folder.

RoE: Delete file "z_bhmod.pk4" from your doom3/d3xp folder.

Disclaimer?

See Doom 3 eula. Also, if you want to use my mod, ask. Not that I wanted to say no, just that I know. And credit me where required.
