Oblivion Reloaded
from the OBGE's code written by Timeslip, Scanti, ShadeMe and Ethatron
totally re-written and developed by Alenet


The new Oblivion Graphics Extender and much more




OR makes significant changes to Oblivion's rendering engine and adds several configurable options.
Whether you are a veteran modder or a newbie,
read ANYWAY this description and the documentation CAREFULLY.



DESCRIPTION
Oblivion Reloaded - OBGE is an OBSE plugin that mainly modifies the rendering pipeline, adding new features and providing screen effects not supported in vanilla Oblivion. This project begins where Oblivion Graphics Extender (OBGE) left off, implementing a series of new features and removing limitations that no longer make sense. OR is the new OBGE version, but it has been re-written to go over the OBGE limitations, removing also the retro compatibility.
OBGE's shaders have been ported, revisioned and new ones have been added. Oblivion Reloaded changes the vanilla shaders and supports several built-in effects, but it has also a custom engine to support any new own effect. In addition, it has a lot of features, improves several other things and fixes some game's bugs. It can be called a mod, but it is not a "normal" mod but a real "code patch" and it upgrades Oblivion to a new version: "forget" the old Oblivion's guides and settings to use OR.
The main difference between OR and other plugins/mods is that OR is an extension/patch of the game. This means OR is not a mod (an addition) but it is a real upgrade of the game to a new version and it uses the settings taken from the esm/esp mods like the original game does. Mainly, it is an unofficial patch developed without having the source code. The included OblivionReloaded.esp is not the patch, it is only to load some resources.
Then, it is totally customizable to activate/deactivate the features you prefer.
Oblivion Reloaded does NOT TOUCH the game executable and you need the original version of the game to play.

README
You MUST not use Oblivion Reloaded with:
- The Oblivion Graphic Extender plugin and any mod that depends on it (no OBGE v3 retro compatibility).
- My Improved Water, Enhanced Grass, Memory Purger - Extended (they are merged into OR).

CONFLICTS
Mainly no conflicts occur but some mods could manage similar modifications to the game that could interfere/conflict with OR.
Disable them or the relative feature if you want to use the one included in OR (or viceversa).
You must disable the Steam overlay (for Steam's version).

FIRST INSTALLATION
- YOU MUST NOT FORCE ANYTHING IN THE VIDEO CONTROL PANEL (USE APPLICATION SETTINGS)
- YOU MUST NOT CHANGE THE SHADER PACKAGE DETECTED BY THE GAME (LEAVE IT AS IT IS)
- Delete the Oblivion.ini to reset settings to default (the one in Documents\My Games\Oblivion)
- Run the launcher and set the resolution, graphics to highest quality, HDR, antialiasing if you want to use the ingame MSAA
- Run the game and set up required ingame video options and any other setting you need
- Exit the game and set up recommended Oblivion.ini settings
- Copy the zip content in your Oblivion's Data folder (i strongly recommended to install OR MANUALLY)
- Invalidate your BSA archives (if you didn't redirect them)
- Activate the OblivionReloaded.esp (load order is not important)
- Reboot the machine (to clear caches)
- If you have the retail version, run the game by the obse_loader.exe (if you have the Steam version, OR should be loaded automatically)

UPDATES
- Copy the zip content in your Oblivion's Data folder (i strongly recommended to install OR MANUALLY) and overwrite the files

UNINSTALL
- Remove files.
- Delete the Oblivion.ini to restart from defaults.
- Reinstall DarNified UI if you are using it

TEMPORARY DEACTIVATION
- Rename OblivionReloaded.dll into OblivionReloaded.dll.noload in your Data\OBSE\Plugins
NOTE: Some textures override the vanilla ones; deactivating OR doesn't prevent some textures to be loaded

- The manual is inside the package under the Docs folder
