NVIDIA’s Jacob Freeman has shared some screenshots, showcasing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 with RTX Remix Path Tracing. From what I see, this RTX Remix Mod appears to be in a very early development stage. That or these screenshots are the default results of the RTX Remix Runtime.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 came out on PC in August 2002, meaning that it’s over 20 years old. As such, you should temper your expectations. Right now, the RTX Remix Mod can only improve the game’s lighting. The 3D models and textures are untouched. Thus, the game feels a bit weird. On the one hand, we have an advanced lighting system. On the other hand, we have some really low-res textures and low-polygon 3D models.
For those wondering, it appears that this mod isn’t available for download. I’ve searched ModDB and there is no such RTX Remix Mod for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4. All we have right now are these WIP screenshots and nothing more.
In January, we shared several RTX Remix Mods that are in the works. As such, you can take a look at screenshots and videos for Tomb Raider 2, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Manhunt, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, and Garfield Kart RTX Remix. Last week, we also shared a video from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas RTX Remix. Oh, and a couple of days ago, we shared a video for Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
Speaking of Path Tracing Mods for older titles, you might also want to check out the following ones. Modders have released early demos for their Path Tracing Mods for Tomb Raider, Max Payne and Call of Duty 4. Do note that the COD4 Mod is a “proof of concept” demo, and it does not look that great. On the other hand, the RTX Remix Mod for Max Payne looks amazing (at least in my opinion). Let’s also not forget the RTX Remix for COD: WoW. And then there is this amazing RTX Remix Mod for Need for Speed: Underground 2. Oh, and don’t forget to give a go at this RTX Remix for Unreal Tournament 2004. Finally, you can download Path Tracing Mods for Doom 2, Quake, Half-Life and Serious Sam.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
