Sorry for taking a long hiatus after what happened in 2016 and my laptop dying. But I just got a new laptop for Christmas. The issue that stands in my way is the lack of a disc drive. So I can't install AvP2 onto here and continue the project that I've been wanting to get back to. If anyone has any solutions, that would be appreciated.

Don't need a CD to install avp2 anymore (This is 2018 not 1998)

Here you go http://avpunknown.com/avp2aio

It's not properly working for me. I Installed it but wouldn't run, and when i try to install dirext 8 it doesn't install just stops the install.

Install instructions:
Use official game patch and fan made multiplayer patch 2.4 as these have bug fixes.

"All of Yaji's skins as well as the original game's worldtextures, skins, characters etc. have been reworked to make them look less "saturated" and less "comiclike". I used a "fake" bumpmapping effect over every texture to gain a bit more depth and basically make it appear more realistic."
-https://www.gamefront.com/games/alien...​

His works pretty solid honestly (Though I found someone more ambitious). Just drag into the games main folder, go into the first window with the queen and go to options. Copy and paste that into the "Command-Line" field: -rez AVP207.rez -rez AVP207DLL.rez, then click the: "Always specify these command-line parameters", OK.

Try to go beyond 60fps in this game unless its multiplayer you want since the game has issues going faster than that in the campaign.

Nvidia users go to control panel:
Vertical sync set to Fast if you dont have g sync.
Low latency mode: Ultra
Texture filtering: High quality

AMD it doesnt matter.

Install reshade to the game and use the DX 10/11/12 path.
https://reshade.me/

Replace the "reshade-shaders" folder generated by reshade from this process with the one provided here: https://github.com/Yodasraytracedretr...​

Drop the ReshadePreset file in the same place, next to the games .exe.

Download this wrapper so that reshade will work with this game.
http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVo...​
"dgVoodoo v2.72  - for regular usage (released: 2020.12.16)"

Turn on anistrophic filtering to 16x in the dg Voodoo control panel, DirectX tab. You need to run as admin to make changes. I recommend you right click, and make that open as admin everytime automatically. Uncheck dg Voodoo Watermark. Check fast video memory access. Choose resolution in this box for supersampling if you can run it. DO NOT use the Antialiasing (MSAA) function or raytracing WILL NOT work.

YOU WILL WANT TO SET THE RESHADE TOGGLE ON OFF SO THAT THE IN GAME MENUS ARE EASIER TO SEE. This is found in reshades tab called "settings". I typically use the page down, or "pgdn" key. Just toggle off for the menu navigation, and on for the 3D render of the game.

DO NOT use the vsync in the game since its double buffered (Glitch). Use your video card driver version instead, and make sure its triple buffered. It shouldnt matter for freesync 2 or g sync users except you still dont want the in game vsync on because it will still effect you.

I bought gigapixel A.I. and im still learning how to convert files. What I would like to do is upscale the games textures with it.

I was hoping post communication with this modder and giving him the workaround to make the game install correctly we would get something beyond a few pictures. He seems more interested in other things and this was probably never intended to actually be available since ive been ignored for some time now.

Im still in the process of another project that takes on the responsibility of more than just one piece of art. There is probably more than one way to skin this cat. Including running the game in a wrapper for DX9, so texmod potentially works.

The modding community is such a mixed bag it inspired me to fix it within a specific timeframe.
