    The glprogs folder now contains 5 sub-folders:
    parallax (Parallax Mapping)
    parallax with offset limiting
    pom (Parallax Occlusion Mapping)
    relief (Relief Mapping)
    steep parallax (Steep Parallax Mapping)
    Each folder contains the interaction.vfp and test.vfp files. You have to choose one of these folders (depending of the effect you want), and copy the selected .vfp files to the root of the glprogs folder.

    So to get the "relief effect", you should use the two files in the POM folder, but doing this results in a bug for me (black textures)...
    I'll try on a clean install.

    I was going to install this but will wait for NiukNiuk to test it first! :D

    I already have your combo pack and it is even better than Perfected Doom mod so don't want to mess it up now.

    I hope 1.2 gets ported to Prey and Quake 4 soon.

    Ok it works (I had to delete my doomconfig.cfg file)
    I made a quick comparison between the different parallax methods contained in this glprogs folder (you can choose the one you like the most):
    Sikkmod 1.2 parallax methods comparisons

    EDIT: hey, new thing added in this version 1.2: FXAA is available as an edge anti-aliasing method, under the "color" menu :)

    hehe i have a few extra questions :nerd:

    the last Steep Parallax looks the best imo, does it run faster compared to wulffens POM?

    Can i still use wulffens extra textures + this new Steep Parallax? i see you mentioned its location, so you now can switch on the fly ingame with diff parallax types?

    in 1,1 i merged wulfens textures and progs with default sikkmod modfiles.pk4 file.. can i do the same now?

    tnx :)

    Is this with the default sikkmod 1.2 or is it a combined pack with sikkmod 1.2 added? I think POM and relief looks the best so far.

    I'm sleepy too :)

    @TheHunter: I only did some quick test (in the maps I took the screenshots), and overall POM is still really heavy on performance in Hell map ^^ concerning the other methods...well I don't know: I made a quicksave, quit the game, changed the parallax vfp files, launched the game again and loaded my savegame to make these screenshots. I did this to get identical screenshots (better to compare). So I didn't really "play" (I'll do this tomorrow).

    And yes you can use one of these 5 parallax methods with the texture packs (my screenshots prove it^^), just copy interaction.vfp and test.vfp from your favorite parallax method's folder, into the glprogs folder (on the root of the folder), and launch the game.
    If (like me the first time), you can't see any difference (no "relief" effect), delete your doomconfig.cfg (yes you'll have to re-enter your sikkmod settings, so write them somewhere first ^^)

    Ok now I'm off...exhausting day....need to sleep...

    @ Valken: it's with the texture packs (but WITHOUT HQmainmenu mod, I need to edit it), but I had to delete my doomconfig.cfg file for the desired "relief" effect to appear (I don't know why), so these screenshots were taken using default sikkmod settings.

    THIS looks best to you?

    You're a blindo. Last Steep parallax is worst - by far.




    Don't mention it :)

    Yup, both POM and Relief created stuff that was nowhere near in original pic.

    I took parallax with offset limiting :grad:

    Clearly you have never been a moderator, threads can be merged. But good to know you admit you didn't knew there was a new version out.

    Anyway i've updated the main post as you asked.

    I guess i'll pick something else.

    I was just saying that threads can be merged, mods can do it. I wasn't asking you to do it, i know how to distinguish normal users from mods, smods, admins, staff etc

    Anyway, OT.

    That parallax looks really weird, are you guys sure isn't there any value that causes that? Have you tried a non-custom config?
