Talking Re: BloodRayne 2 FSAA Patch 1.41

Update 25/10/2008 (Version 1.5) & BloodRayne 2 HD ACT1

Welcome to the public version 1.5 of the BloodRayne 2 FSAA Patch.

New in this version:

- High Definition Textures Support !!! (for the BloodRayne 2 HD project).
- Texture Compression with Built-in Multi-Threaded Memory Manager.
- In-game OSD to change the options of the patch on the fly (F2 key).
- Logitech G15 LCD support.
- 50% faster SSE3 code.
- Faster & more compatible FSAA method.
- Full Screen Size Effects.
- More memory leaks fixed.
- More optimizations.
- A fix for the cut scenes is included.

The in-game OSD, allows you to change all the options of the patch, on the fly:

While you are in the game, you can use F3 to toggle between the original textures, and the HD textures.

To enjoy the HD textures, you need to download the 'BloodRayne 2 HD ACT1 BASE' package (2x 200MB) from coopdb.

Nearly all the textures of the ACT1 have been developed by me (a programmer, not an artist), during the last 6 months (plus 3 months that i needed to develop the editing tools). I'll keep working in the HD project, but, it's going to need a lot of time till the next release, without more help (and there are 4+ ACTs in the game).

About the texture sizes, the usual size is 1024x1024, some are 2048x2048, and the Rayne texture is 4096x2048 (atm, just an upsample, but waiting for a professional artist to do it).

Special thanks to the game developers & publishers (Terminal Reality & Majesco) for allowing me to release this patch.

Thank you very much & enjoy playing with Rayne !
