Good day fellas. I've been spending some time looking into upscaling algorithms and have been using the textures in Turok 2 to mess around with.
Inevitably, I have scaled the textures up by 6 whole. These textures are absolutely lore friendly. The source of these textures are the original textures, so there will be no negative effect on the atmosphere. What can you expect from this?

-Textures that generally look better
-Masked and transparent textures have no aliasing, there are no longer any jagged edges
-The lot of the grass textures have been completely replaced with a set of color (palette) matched grass textures
-The blood splatter textures are now color matched to the blood and are thereby now lore friendly
-An attempt to emulate texture density (detail) with noise and some other tricks (This works particularly well on things like Joshua's textures)
-Longer loading times
-Greater performance impact
-The effect of the algorithm can be seen on some textures

Upscaled Textures Example

Great! Where can I get it?

Textures 1.4GB OR 1GB
Version 1 (Less appealing) 1.4GB
Version 2 (Better alpha and masking, better textures) 1GB

Turok 2 Seeds of Evil Modding/Mapping / Fun Sway
« on: June 30, 2018, 05:39:20 PM »
Hello, forums and welcome to the Fun Sway mod!
Have you ever played Turok 2: Seeds of Evil and said to yourself "Wow! This sway is boring!"
Of course not! So I resolved the problem anyway.
Want some samples? Here they are:

War Blade:
Tek Bow:
Charge Dart:
Plasma Rifle:
Fire Storm Cannon:
Sunfire Pod:
Grenade Launcher:
Scoirpion Launcher:
Flame Thrower:
Razor Wind:

What's new in

Removed infinite HP
Removed infinite Shotgun ammo

Weapons now fire with the direction of the rotation offset in mind. Results with hitscan weapons is not fully as expected. Expect improvements.

Where to download?
Turok Sanctum OUT OF DATE!

Got Bugs?
DM me on Discord. My discord is Drahsid#5152

What's coming?
The ability to more easily edit the stiffness and damper of each individual spring component.

Special Thanks

Hey guys. I started a Turok 2 playthrough in VR and thought you'd be interested in it. Check it out:

EDIT: Sorry Drahsid, your other link didnt work so i fixed it.

Turok 2 Seeds of Evil / Turok 2 physics latency
« on: December 14, 2016, 01:45:46 PM »
So, I'm supposed to be taking my English midterm, but already finished it. I began playing T2 on the school computer.
Full framerate- nice!
Wait- physics lag?!
No, really. I began playing and the game's animations were running, but the player position was teleporting as if I were online with 1k ping and the client had no interpolation. Has anybody else experienced this?
My face:

I looked into it and this PC has a Pentium G3240 CPU (Aka trash)

Turok 2 Seeds of Evil / Joshua and Adon's disturbing relationship
« on: November 18, 2016, 03:28:05 PM »
Hey fellas. I was reading some of the Turok 2 comics yesterday, to refresh my memory, and I noticed that Joshua and Adon have a very strange relationship. Especially since Adon is an AI. When Adon was introduced, as an love interest, she immediately began foreplay.

No joke, this is how they meet. Of course, Joshua says afterwards
"Hey, if that's going to be your wake up call then you can just keep knocking me out!"
Before asking who she is. Okay, so the AI is horny and Joshua is like "Sure whatever" about it, after all, he is a college student.
Well, they continue this strange friendship for a couple of comics, but what really got me was the description of Adon in the comic titled "Turok 2: Adon's Curse"

Where I want you to focus on the final sentence. She's an AI which has feelings, strangely enough.
Throughout this specific comic, there is an exponential amount of their emotions, as seen in the cover art and throughout the pages.

The cover art, which leaves little to your imagination.

Over empathized scene where Adon states that she is an AI.

Anyways, my final thoughts on this is that its strange.

Turok 2 Seeds of Evil / Turok logo vector art
« on: November 13, 2016, 07:58:24 PM »
So I'm working on a program (which you fellas will love (If you might be interested and can make models or very high resolution textures, send me an email here)) and I was like "I'll need the logo but it's resolution is way low! I'll just render a new one." So I made a vector image and rastered it in 12k, here it is:
(I couldn't use the /img switch because it's resolution is too high for the forums)

And, for the nerds of you out there, I will provide some specs:

Vector Image Type: .lw; .vec; raw
Vector Image Size (MB): 672
RAM usage (Raw load): 3789.2 MB
RAM usage (Raster load): 524.6 MB
Rastered Resolution: 10000x5625
Rastered Size (MB): 2.99 MB
Rastered format: PNG RGBA32

Also, if you're wondering why this is in the Turok 2 section, I based this off of the T2 logo.
Also, it was super hard to draw the O in vector format.

Hey there guys. Sorry I'm not super active, I've been working on something I think you guys might like (It's not this.)
But I put this together in a few hours and thought you guys might like it:

Turok Evolution / Turok Evolution Community Fan Game
« on: May 31, 2015, 11:29:16 AM »
I saw that you guys are getting the models exported, I was thinking, as a community we could create a fan game.
If you'd like to help, just post here.
As for now, we should decide what game engine it should be wrote in.
