Valves classic portal was recently released on Steam with some interesting new graphics, including ray tracing and DLSS support. This was awesome news for portal fans, but also really great news for fans of old PC games.
I will explain the technology that we were talking about before proceeding. RTX is the name of a suite of technologies used by Nvidia in graphics card industry for a sophisticated game creation technique. Using rays and AI-based systems for a simple presentation of PC games. Here is the trailer for Portal with RTXthe re-release of the game made with this technology, showing the improvements made to a game that many of us remember as looking very 2007: the actual update: The new era: the re-release of the new game, which some of us may remember as a big apple: the aforementioned new technologies.
Portal with RTX and world premiere.
And RTX is that while in this case (and with quake and Minecraft), that was necessary in the game, and Nvidia was also releasing a version of this technology with modders in mind. This song’s RTX Remix:
RTX Remix put the game in the background. It replaced legacy rendering systems with RTX Remix’s 64-bit Vulkan renderer. This lets you look for video-based rays to play classics and you can add all your updates in real time with light and objects moving. Light can come with RTX or thrown behind the player or through a room. Light can then pass through the portals. Glass destroys light; blustery surfaces reflect detail, reflections can be cast into the scene behind the player, objects can reflect themselves and indirect light is illuminated to the objects that affect the eyes.
Compared to RTX and Minecraft, the path-tracing rays introduced by RTX Remix are much faster, with the four-time reflection rather than once of the light. High quality, immersion and simulation of real light in both real world. Finally, we have introduced new ray tracing techniques which further improve quality, while being more powerful.
Nvidia says RTX Remix is a modding platform that will allow moders of all skill levels to bring ray-observing and NVIDIA technologies to classic games. Since its last appearance in 2023, I thought that we were months away from seeing what benefits it could bring to older games. But no!
Modders like LordVulcan have found that you can add RTX juice to some classic titles, and in most cases this is done simply by moving some files from one folder of your hard drive to another, and enabling some developers to the console. That’s it. It’s used in games such as SWAT 4 and the original Max Payne.
G/O Media may receive commissions.
Even if the results aren’t perfect, they still look amazing compared to the professional jobs that have been done on games like over months. Here is example of Max Payne, supported by Alex Coulter:
This is a lighting. These shadows are dark. That is magic.
Here are some shots of SWAT 4 recorded by Eiermann Fernsehen, which was released in 2005 and definitely didn’t look like this back then.

In the case of Half Life 1 and a short explanation for how it was made:

They have no one who believes they are. They work very well considering how rapid they were implemented. What the RTX remix will be able to do now is, in 2023, the real RTX remix will be done in 2023? But with the same slapdash workaround, it’s cool to see what other classics this slapdash-like workaround is compatible with.
