Hi there!
Here is the first official preview of TalonŽs Reach -remake-.


It took 7 hours of work with Photoshop. ^^

Download the file and extract it to:
(but please backup the existing file for the case that you dont like the new textur)

-Download NRACE01.rar- (http://mitglied.lycos.de/schmaltes/tracks)

Its just a little preview of the new texturset.
IŽll release a full package (remake of all tracks, new hud, new titlescreen, modified menu)
when IŽm ready. ;)

if you want to play Wipeout-2097 on your PC in 1024*768 at normal speed,

Looks sweet mate!

Is this a fully remade Talon's Reach?

its a complete new texturset.
First I cleaned the old Textures up and then I addet a new textur over it.

So, its just a new look, not a new polygonmodel of the track. :/
(IŽm not able to upgrade the polygonmodels, maybe I`ll find a way later)

I'm sure you speak about the PS-Version, right?
erm, what I wanted to say:
Maybe you could show us a few more pics in higher quality? :P

I really like the new textures, but the screenshots look too dark!

Also, I'm not a fan of the face in the screen, and the top lights in the tunnet ;)

IŽll remove the face.... ^^
And IŽll look for some new oplights. :)

maybe I'm a n00b, but when I want to extract the file it just shows text. no pics. The file is also just 10 KBs big (or small).

HELP! :?

Well, just go to -there- (http://mitglied.lycos.de/schmaltes) and do rightclick/save as on "ner.rar".

Than extract the pack.
inside is a folder called "Neuer Ordner", and inside of tis folder are the pix.

Tha pack has 586KB... ;)

That easy.... !?

I've tested the track a bit, so here's my feedback!

I don't know if you've made it intentionally or not, ,but basically everything looks like it has rotten.
I mean, Talon's Reach look like it has been abandonned for 200 years!

Now I know that WO2097 is old, but still :P

The general look is ok, but I do have some things to point out:
- the checkered parts should not be made old, they should be clean! If you're gonna race there, the place need to be clean :P

- the textures don't link: the ground really looks tiled vertically, you should try to make it more seamless :)

- same thing goes for the side of the track, tiles too much!

Otherwise, the background (non track) looks really good this way :)

Keep it up!

Is there any guide on how to change textures etc?
Maybe we could do something cool :D

thanx 4 your feedback!
IŽll release 3 Krusetexmods.

One in the rotten style, one in a cleaned up style, and the last one will be a complete new trackstyle.

I will also make a tutorial about the texturemodfication.
I think IŽll release it with the cleaned Textures, so youŽll able to use these textures as basis for your own mod. :)

But thiss all will take time.
Maybe in some weeks or something like that.....
