Blade of Darkness Reforged

Post by sfb »

Hi all,

I'm happy to finally present my new mod Blade of Darkness Reforged!

It features upscaled 2k handmade textures based on the original textures covering all maps*, objects, weapons, characters and npcs.

Also, individual Reshade presets for each map. These individual Reshade configs have been carefully designed for each map and include Bloom, DOF, AO, SSR, HDR and tonemapping.

The actual game files are still uploading to Moddb but in the mean time check out some youtube footage and screenshots here and below.

Lastly, a big thanks to all those here at Arohkslair, especially Prospero, Tomash, Sryml, Cieply & Borer.

And especially, a huge thankyou to the legend Sryml for developing the awesome mmp_converter framework. Without this, Blade of Darkness Reforged would simply not exist.

Anyway, hopefully you guys like it!

Cheers,
SFB

Is it still TBA or did I lost DL link somehow?
Also could you make an option to choose the characters skins more similar in style to original ones?

No it's still uploading to Moddb. I'm having a few issues with it as it's a large file but will let you guys know once it's ready...hopefully next week sometime.

As for the character skins, I designed them differently for some variety but if more people ask for the original textures to be remade I'll consider it.

So at the moment, not installing my textures over the default characters is the only option or using a different HD mod just for those characters will work as well.

cheers,

Thanks mate, it wouldn't have been possible without your mmp_converter framework. Seriously made it so easy and quick to unpack and repack mmp files, especially for over 500 textures!

Great news! It seems you have put some serious hard work into your mod. I will definitely give it a go, looks very good.
I haven't played the original campaign in a while, so this looks like the perfect chance for that. :mrgreen:

Wow, it looks terrific! :shock: We should have this kind of improvement on the steam release tbh. Anyway, I'm looking forward to try it on this weekend. Congrats in advance!
