• Half Life 1 Graphics

Alright, so. Not that I have a problem with them, the game is fun anyway, but I want to read the shit that's on the signs and stuff (the stuff that doesn't matter). Yes. It takes me a long ass time to play games like Half Life and HL2 because I try to read the shit. Anyway. In the video settings, all there is is the rederer, resolution, standard or wide screen, and colour resolution. The command mat_picmip -10 doesn't exist (or any other mat command) so is there a way to increase the graphics? I try setting the colour resolution to 32bit but it always resets to 16.
No! Just don't use the Software renderer.
There is no way to improve them. That's the highest they're going to get. It's HL1, it's what games looked like back then.
Blargh. Can't wait for Black Mesa Source then. 'cause I really want to know what all the signs and shit say. <_> What's wrong with the software renderer? I'm using it now and I don't have any problems.
It lags.

There's super duper high res packs floating around that make everything more clear like the vending machines

[QUOTE=Ven Kaeo;15805189]What's wrong with the software renderer?[/QUOTE] It doesn't use your graphics card so everything is low resolution and blurry.

[b]Fun Fact[/b] Duck down anywhere, and look really really closely at something (not an entity. Something like walls and such). Oh shi-, pixels! It's like a fucking browser game but a (used-to be when I was around) freeware game! Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh
[QUOTE=Dashiel;15838990][url]steam://installaddon/halflifehd[/url][/QUOTE] There's an even more enhanced SD (super definition) pack out there somewhere, but it's a bit less official
[QUOTE=DementNeo;15840564]There's an even more enhanced SD (super definition) pack out there somewhere, but it's a bit less official[/QUOTE] SD means Standard Definition :S
Usually, but not in this case
[QUOTE=DementNeo;15840564]There's an even more enhanced SD (super definition) pack out there somewhere, but it's a bit less official[/QUOTE] It's probably on Half-Life Improvement.
[QUOTE=Dashiel;15838990][url]steam://installaddon/halflifehd[/url][/QUOTE] Thanks.

I like HL1 graphics. The older the better until Doom 1.

To all the dumbshits (Especially ZestyLemon) who keep insinuating I have a problem with the graphics. >Not that I have a problem with them. The graphics are fine, for fucks sake. You idiots need to learn to read. I said I wanted to read what the stuff on the walls says. The equations and the smaller posters, signs, cork board stuff, etc. This message is not directed to those of you who are actually helping. Or just derailing. I also thank the person that linked the HD pack.
[QUOTE=Dashiel;15838990][url]steam://installaddon/halflifehd[/url][/QUOTE] Yeah...I didn't think Half Life1 was worth 10bucks before I first played it....I didn't pay anything for it :( Idk if that'll work, that's like waving the illegal copy right in Valve's face.
