thanks.
Well it depends on your Doom 3/Quake 4, 3mood/Quak4 and control panel settings... overall I think your performance will be enough fast with good quality settings.

3mood 1.4.0r (not beta) and Quak4 1.1.0b preview....

New features:
* "Texel Sampling and Offset" option - Awesome Image quality with excellent performance (so called "über" Offset mapping).
* "Height Map Offset" option enabled - Does't work with Normal Maps (z).
* "Relief Mapping" option enabled (thanks to fpo) - Does't work with Normal Maps (z) and performance is very slow.
* "Fetch Height Map from Specular or Diffuse Map (w)" option
* "Build Height Maps" option for external programs (e.g. fpo's normal2depth.exe)
* Many new Offset options for "Texel Sampling and Offset" and "Relief Mapping" options (e.g Sampling Scale (or depth), Bias (or distance) and Iterations)
* "Ingore Light Vector Normalization" option for "NRM Instruction" option (normalize with normalization cube map)
* Doom 3/Quake 4 Config file (e.g. DoomConfig.cfg) options - You can tune and test e.g. resolution settings, filtering and lod settings, anisotropic and antialiasing sampling settings, texture compression and cache settings etc.

Quality and performance optimizations:
* Specular modes ("Ultra" and "High Quality") performance should be 1-2% faster (huh! )
* "High Quality specular" option's image quality is slightly better than before (almost as good as Ultra Quality Specular)

Bug fixes:
* two nasty bugs fixed in "3mood/Quak4 Option Profiles"

Cool, can't wait for their release.

Thanks for taking the time to continually update these tweakers.

So, what comes after Uber? Super-Duper and Super-Hyper?

Anyhow, I'd like to see the tooltips stay longer so I have time to read them and I'd like them messages to be more easily decrypted from guru-math-talk to the language of an average gamer/enthusiast...

3mood/quak4 is the best gfx mod ever on any game, hope you can keep up interest on this.

Hi guys,

I didn't have time to finish new releases of 3mood and Quak4 before the Christmas like I promised because I got three days ago a bad memory from Corsair that seems to corrupted my WinXP

Sorry guys... I'll try to finish both releases after Christmas season.

Merry Christmas to all

Thumbs up Re: Quak4 - Quake 4 tuning tool for NVIDIA G70/NV40/NV30 Series GPU's

tertsi, or anyone who can answer this- do either the performance or the image quality tweaks settings carry over into multiplayer? I can tell that the IQ settings do not, but it seems like the performance settings do. is there a way to make all the settings from this tool take effect in multiplayer? or is the server/punkbuster telling the clients that they can't alter the performance/image settings? can anybody help me out on this one? thanks
