ACE and HD Textures

Post by Lee_Stricklin »

ACE seems to have a problem with people using HD textures on some servers as you can see from my attached screenshot. While I never had an issue using the old UTRP textures last updated in 2015, it should be noted that the work on that project has changed hands and has since seen some major updates and changes, the latest of which was made last month. If it matters, the version of UT I'm running is the latest 469 release and I'm using the latest version of the Direct3D 11 renderer with some height maps thrown in.

Which version of the HD texture pack do you want whitelisted? 3.0.4?

Ideally everything from Diehard's incomplete UTRP all the way through the latest version (3.0 I believe) of the HD textures and 4K textures for Direct3D 11 would be whitelisted, but I don't have a clue as to how ACE is coded/configured and don't know how possible that is. I also have to wonder if the heightmaps (linked below) would also cause an issue as it's not something that exists in a normal UT99 install.

Hi anth,

I really would appreciate that too. :thuup: This would be an important step for people playing online, that enjoy an up to date texture quality.
As far as I know this texture pack ist the most up to date: https://www.moddb.com/games/unreal-tour ... tures-ut99
Correct me if I'm wrong.

Cheers.

That one is actually the previous version (2.0). The most up to date packs (3.0) are on the link in my first post. It should be noted that there is an HD textures pack as well as two other 4K texture pack downloads.

EDIT: Looks like the author put a slightly more updated version on ModDB (3.04)

Latest HD textures version 3.5 (September 2021) require "whitelisting". I cannot connect to ACE servers anymore. And I will not restore utxs :wth: , my game looks so beautiful now. :mrgreen:
