    hi people ive stumbled across a secret chest hidden behind some rocks, while doing the

    lifting the vale quest

    i went to open the chest and it said i needed a key and a had a look around but no look, so i used the unlock cheat cus i wanted to see what was in side.

    their was a key in side called ''forgotten key''


    here are some picture that shows were it is and the item it self, if u could find out what its for and let me no i would be great full (it must be part of the game as no mod ive add did this)


    thanks

    OK... Here's some news on Qarl's Texture Pack 3. As many of you know, it's currently in beta testing. But I made quite a few big changes since the beta was released, so no one but me has these yet. :) First of all, I finally relented and redid the coastal rocks and got rid of the ones with all the fossils. I liked the fossils but they were a major source of centention as some people loved them and some people hated them -well, they're gone. I like the new ones better though. Here's a screenshot -but note: I'm using 2048x2048 textures and normals in that shot. I'll be reducing them before the final release of QTP3, so they won't look quite as good as they do here...

    I also redid the blood spatters...

    [​IMG] before [​IMG] after

    I have a new normal technique and I can see it is really going to make things in the mid-distance level look MUCH better. Before, my texture packs tended to make just the very close things look good, these new normals should extend that "good look" range out to the mid-level. Here's some comparison screenshots to show what I mean...

    Note: My 6800GT can't do AA and HDR so there's no AA in these shots. Also the new AF on newer cards is much better than mine.

    Finally, here's just some more fun, vanilla vs. QTP3 shots:

    (That last shot also shows off that new normal map technique I'm using.)

    I like the new beach rocks! That was one of the few things I didn't really like about your texture pack (the enormous quantity of fossils :p)
    Rest is looking Prime too.

    There are 3 chests in the pale pass area. A key is in 2 of them, the 3rd contains a nice prize. 1 chest is hidden close to the dungen entrance (in a crumbled small fort). The second is futher down the path (back toward the exit of pale path) behind a section of broken wall. The last is close to the exit of pale pass (still in the area with the orgres) up and to the right.

    There are a few hidden items in the game, more when you mod the game.
    If you really must know, the prize is Circlet of Omnipotence:
    Fortify Agility 3pts
    Fortify Endurance 3pts
    Fortify Speed 3pts
    Fortify Strength 3pts
    Fortify Willpower 3pts

    Ta da!

    hey guys,
    i did a complete format of my hdd and havn't installed the amd drivers (i found that they enabled the coolnquiet function) but installed just the dual core optimizer, installed oblivion and mods... and in the very cpu intensive zones (large citys with lots of ppl or with very deep view and very big forests) my fps raised from 20/25 to 45+!!!!!!!!!!! O.O

    also i noticed an overall performance increase almost everywhere.
    always with aa4x+HDR and af16x

    i also oced my cpu to 2.6ghz and it works great!


    NOW i finally can enjoy oblivion :D

    Can anyone tell me some good drivers for my setup that wont cause oblivion to blue screen. I have the newest drivers from nvidia's site and have nothing but problems with this game. Serious Sam 2 plays fine though.

    DXT1 and no alpha is the default texture used in oblivion.

    Using an alpha makes a texture shiny like it's wet. (very vissible on ground textures etc.

    And find some information about file formats.......you should know by now as you've edited before. When you use bmp/jpg's it looks like what you see on the screen as a dds. It doesn't make a difference for the size, as bmp and jpg are of another format......

    You can probably find instructions here.
