SkyGfx: PS2 graphics for PC

SkyGfx (Sky is name of Renderware for the PS2) brings accurate PS2 graphics to the PC version of San Andreas.

IMPORTANT: This is a replacement for my earlier PS2 mods, namely: ps2refl.asi, postfx.asi, ps2shads.asi (low quality shadows), ps2grass.asi.
REMOVE them first before using SkyGfx.

How to install, requirements, notes:
- Use a compact or hoodlum exe
- Use an ASI loader and place both skygfx.asi and skygfx.ini where it will find them (skygfx_pc.ini contains settings that will make your game look like a vanilla PC version).
- You should use SilentPatch ( Link )
- If you're using SilentPatch, set TwoPassRendering=0 there if you're using dualPassWorld=1 in SkyGfx (i.e. DO NOT enable dual pass in both plugins).
You can also disable Silent's night vertex color shader with NVCShader=0, SkyGfx has a (better :p) replacement.
- If you're not using SilentPatch, use a PS2 timecyc.dat or any timecycp.dat
- for a description of the many settings, see the comments in skygfx.ini
- Since the PC vehicles don't work too well with the PS2 reflections (too much reflection), you should use my PS2 vehicles for PC ( Link )
- To get the big PS2 sun, use the seabed.ipl from the PS2 game (reduces draw distance)

To do:
- golden car bug
- exploded vehicle reflection bug
- thermal vision

If you experience any bugs, please make sure it is really this mod causing them and not some other.
Otherwise report them in this thread of course.

Credits: NTAuthority and Silent for their code and being generally helpful.
Dexx. Everyone who reported bugs and spotted differences to the PS2 graphics, especially format.
