This is for DX8 users ONLY if you have a DX9 card that can render DX9 well DO NOT use this patch

Compatable cards

Nvidia Geforce 4 Ti and up
ATi 9200,9500

to install extract to the hl2/materials folder.

This mod gives Nvidia and ati9200/9500 users near DX9 quality water. Real time reflections 0 performance loss and just about the same quality as DX9 water.

The Radeon 9500 is a true DX9 card, isn't it? Why would this be needed for it?

That's just it. It wouldn't. The 9200 yes, because that's just a bastardized 8500.

It was probably a Type O in the description, I'm sure they meant 8500. I copied the file to HL2 DM and CS Source and it works with them to. Played some HL2 levels with lots of water and the reflections were there without a performance hit so this mod does work.
