CHANGELOG

  • Added experimental widescreen splash support for NFSU2. This feature is currently hidden, advanced users should look at the source code to enable.
  • Fixed numerous issues with NFSU2's texture support.
  • All font textures should now be supported, including the unused fonts.


HOW TO USE
1. Move the appropriate scripts folder to your game's install folder.
2. Download and extract Ultimate-ASI-Loader.zip
3. Move dinput8.dll to your game's install folder.
4. Enjoy!

FAQ
Q: What does this do?
A: It enables support for HD textures and videos by correcting their scaling through an ASI script. No textures or videos are included.

Q: Can this work with HD Font Support?
A: This plugin does exactly what HD Font Support used to do, but more. They can be used together, but it's unnecessary and not recommended.

Q: Why don't my HD videos display in the correct aspect ratio?
A: You must use FMVWidescreenMode = 2 from the Widescreen Fix. HD Content Support corrects the scaling, Widescreen Fix corrects the aspect ratio.

Q: What is Global Neon Support and Global Shadow Support?
A: It allows you to load a single neon / shadow texture from GlobalB.lzc for all cars. This makes HD neon and HD shadow textures possible. Please read the instructions in the INI file located in the scripts folder before enabling.

Q: Can I bundle this with my own mod?
A: Yes, but I ask that you credit me as a courtesy.

I haven't tested your mod yet, but I hope it's compatible with all MW 360 kinematics.

There's nothing you need to do to get it working. Drag, drop, play. My script forces the game to always use the correct scaling values regardless of resolution. I'm basically fixing a programming error.

> How would you go about modding in HD FMVs for a game?

You convert your videos to the VP6 format; that's all I know. Ask on Discord if you want more help. There's someone there creating an HD pack for Most Wanted.

OK cool. So like, does this automatically fix scaling of higher res textures when a game's original files are modified? (That would otherwise have broken scaling without the mod) Or do you have to do something specific to get the asi script to know when to fix scaling?
Secondly, how would you go about modding in HD FMVs for a game? Do you have to use the same file format as a game's original movie file? How does that work?

It's a mistake in the instructions that I forgot to remove. There's nothing to configure, so an INI file is not needed.
