S3 textures on ATI Radeon 4550 HD

Post by zabius » Fri Jul 05, 2013 9:59 am

Hi guys,

I've installed UT game again and just wondered about S3 textures? I know I do not need this but if the game looks better I'd like to give it a go - does anyone know if my card ATI Radeon 4550 HD supports this feature? If so - do I need to do anything in regards to enabling this?

Any advice would be appreciated thanks! :-)

Your card should fully support S3TC textures. I've tested it myself couple of years ago without issues. Look for this guide to enable them: http://www.ut99.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=373

Anyone have the dlls? S3MeTaL is very smooth on slow computers but when I needed it I could never find the dlls. Still worked though

Medor, please use the authors site for links to the replacement textures.
Also you have only posted links to 1 of the packs, which may not be the one required.
These packs come in 4 flavours, depending on your preference and the screen-size you use.
http://www.uttexture.com/UT/Website/Dow ... xtures.htm
http://www.uttexture.com/UT/Downloads/Textures/

As you are using an ATI card, you should be using the DX9 renderer (or DX10 if you are using Vista and above)
