Half Life 2 Ep 2 Mods for better Graphics?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi Everybody. I am very bored waiting for some good new P.C. single player FPS games to come out, So I have decided I want to finish Half life 2 Ep 2 once and for all. Only thing is, I want it to look better. Is there any mods out there to increase the IQ or get better textures from this game. With it fully maxed out at 16AF and 4AA It runs smooth as silk at 1920*1200, So I would really like to tweak this game if it is possible. I tried to get the Fakefactory CM8 Mod to work, But for some reason it won't load properly for me. And I see so many patches for each Part of that mod that it looks like it is not worth all the Headaches.
I just want the best possible graphics I can get, Is that too much to ask. A lot of games like STALKER, Quake 4, Crysis just to name a few have lots of mods or tweaks to greatly increase the textures or graphics.
I am by no means a wiz at all when it comes to mods, So please if anybody has any suggestions please use Simple instructions that are easy to follow.
Thanx so much

32 BIT WARNING:
--------------------------------------------------

This mod was developed and tested on 64 Bit Windows. It is NOT supported on 32 Bit Windows, because of the limited Userspace with 32 Bit systems. You can try it on 32 Bit, but prepare for crashes.

On some 32 Bit systems it is possible to overcome this limitation with some boot.ini switches for raising the userspace limit. I'm not going into detail here, because those tweaks are dangerous and should only
be done by people, who are knowing exactly, what they do.
I belive that your XP is 32-bit.

You can try running Version 8 at 1024X resolution and lower some settings but i would see V6.4 working much better for you. Maybe even at 1920x1200 and all max. You might have to change Ultra high Alyx to regular high.

Installing Cinematics requires just clicking your mouse few times. I don't think that anyone is going to make your life any easier that.

I recommend you to try it again. It could be worth it.

I was looking for the V6.4 version of this mod but can't seem to find the original mod, I just keep finding updates to it.
Can someone please give me a link to what exactly I need to download?
Thanx

You will need to download these files:

V6 Part 1/4
V6 Part 2/4
V6 Part 3/4
V6 Part 4/4
V6.4 Update


Just unzip the first part of 4 (atleast 7zip can do this) and all the rest will come with it.
Install it and then the update.
Have fun.

Dam it, I just noticed you need both Half 2 Ep1 and Ep 2 installed for that mod to work
I only have Ep 2.
So is there no other way to increase the textures of this game?
