About This File

TL;DR

This mod allows you to change the FPS limit to above 60, fix texture issues on modern hardware, adjust the despawn time of corpses, change the FOV, skip intro videos and force custom display resolutions.

 

Quick start guide:

  1. Extract the zip-file to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Quake 4"
  2. Use the Quake4TweakerGUI to change the settings as desired
  3. Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam

Features

The Quake 4 Tweaker is a utility mod for Quake 4 that offers various fixes and additional options for the game. It is easy to install and comes with a GUI for convenient configuration.

 

Its features include:

  • Properly adjusting the FPS limit to above 60 (e.g. to 144)
  • Fixing texture bugs on modern hardware by forcing high image quality
  • Adjusting the despawn time of corpses
  • Changing the field of view
  • Skipping of the intro videos
  • Forcing the game to use a custom resolution

Instructions

Supported Versions

This mod is designed for the latest, fully patched versions of Quake 4 and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables.

  • Steam v1.4.2

Install

The mod does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed.

Additional Information

Antivirus Software

Since this mod consists of an executable DLL file that uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could be classified as malicious by antivirus software. In that case, it might be necessary to add an exception rule to the scanner.

 

If you lack the trust in random people on the internet -- and I would not blame you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file.

 

GUI Requirements

The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 to work; which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required version either through a recommended Windows update (Windows 7 and later) or at Microsoft here.

 

Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors

To increase the compatibility with other mods or injectors that are using a wrapper DLL, this fix offers two methods for remote loading of additional files. Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process.

 

File method:

 

The mod will load another dinput.dll automatically if it has the name dinput_Remote.dll. Just rename the DLL you want to load accordingly. Using this method will lead to an error if the renamed DLL is not itself a dinput.dll.

 

Folder method:

 

The mod will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput_Remote sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the mod. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files.

 

Input Bindings

The GUI allows the binding of an action to an arbitrary combination of keys and buttons on the keyboard, the mouse or an XInput compatible controller. The system purposefully does not restrict conflicts, so multiple actions can be bound to the same key.

 

Key Names:

 

In case of the keyboard there might be a discrepancy between the key that was pressed and the one that is displayed. This is because the names are automatically translated based on the keyboard layout by using a Windows function. However, the mod always uses the physical keys as they were used during the creation of the binding, independent of the name that is displayed.

 

Modifiers:

 

Modifier bindings can be created by just using the corresponding key combinations. If you bind one action to Space and another another to LCTRL + Space and a third one to LALT + LCTRL + Space, only one of them will be triggered when Space is down, depending on the state of LCTRL and LALT. The system is not restricted to the usual modifier keys ALT, CTRL or SHIFT. Any key or button pressed before another acts as a modifier for the next one. Note that the order of the keys or buttons is only relevant during the binding process to distinguish bindings with the same modifiers. In the above example, Space could be held down and the other actions triggered by pressing LCTRL or LALT afterwards.

      Compared to the existing solutions from WSGF made to remove the black bars appearing in the game at 21:9 and wider resolutions, this tool perfectly matches the vertical field of view of each scene to that of 16:9, also allowing to see and adjust the current FOV in real time.
      Download the archive and unpack it using the password pcgw Launch the game, followed by the tool. Apply the fix before the main menu appears or at the main menu before loading into a game. All trainers containing CE components may trigger some anti-virus software.
      Inspired in part by killer-m's work.
      Tested the latest Steam version at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080.

      You need to have Cheat Engine installed, then launch the game, open the table, attach it to the process and use the hotkeys:
       
      F4 - activate the mod
      F5 - reset FoV to default
      F6 - Increase FoV
      F7 - Decrease FoV
      F8 - Set FoV to default +30°

      Known issues:
      If you set an offset too high or too low the camera will flip upside down, just press F5 to reset it.
      In-engine cutscenes are also affected, things that weren't supposed to be in the shot may behave oddly.
      Vehicle weapon crosshairs may be off-center (higher) when using higher FoV, just aim a bit higher than the actual target.

      L.A Noire FPS Unlocker is a tool made to unlock the framerate to 60FPS. This tool contains parts of Cheat Engine and may be detected by some AVs. Add it to the exclusion of your AV if this happens.
      The tool scans for memory values, patches them and shuts off automatically. This tool should work on any version of the game.
      Instructions:
      Open up the tool Start the game Press F10 to activate the tool. You will hear one beep when it starts, and a different beep when it's done Archive password: pcgw
