That terrain looks amazing Grandsurf and the balance of light and contrast looks good too, is that your own tweaked .ini?

 

Out of Curiosity do any of the Black Shark beta testers know if it uses Directx9? ( if that information is not classified :) ) if it does then it could use the newer DX9 version of this mod which has all the features enabled, if it is DX8 then it will obviously still work just like this one.

 

I emailed the Author of the ENBseries file and asked him if we could have the DX8 version of this file with more features enabled which would allow for more precise editing of the colours and possibly the water too. Hopefully I hear something back from him soon. He's Russian so Maybe one of our Russian members could drop him an Email too that way you could converse easier.

DCS Wishlist: 1) FIX THE DAMN RIVERS!!! 2) Spherical or cylindrical panorama view projection. 3) Enhanced input options (action upon button release, etc). 4) Aircraft flight parameter dump upon exit (stick posn, attitude, rates, accel, control volume, control-surface positions, SAS bias, etc). 5) ADS-33 maneuver courses as static objects. 6) Exposed API or exports of trim position and stick force for custom controllers. 7) Select auto multiple audio devices

I missed that update Exelsior thanks for filling me in. Here's the DX9 version for any of the Black Shark beta testers that would like to try and play around with it. Hopefully all the features should work, like colour saturation, motion blur, ambient occlusion and hopefully the water and shadows too. Im not saying they will all work because they don't all work in rFactor or GTR2 but it's worth a try for the colour saturation at least.

I never use windowed mode, i get worse FPS overall and like Graywo1f my AA and AF act all strange. Heck i never need to alt-tab, so this is no worry for me anyways :)

Has anyone been able to make the HDR look more like natural lighting? Would be cool if you could upload your settings :)

 

YEP! that would be cool.

Didnt find the MY settings til now, ether its too blurry or its too dark. :(

And always start and exit Game gets annoying me. Any way to change settings ingame??

Very nice, but I don't think that's HDR, it's exactly the opposite, it's LDR, HDR has no over or under exposed areas, exactly because it has a High Dynamic Range and all lights levels are captured (in case of photography) or representable (in videogames). Here we see overexposed highlights that means that the range of light levels has been reduced and all lights over a specific luminosity appears as white or extremely white. btw very nice effect.

 

This is HDR http://www.robertomettifogo.com/immagini/paesaggi/paesaggi.htm

I see that too but its barely noticeable at game..

It disturbing at the interface tho..

 

From the developers notes:

 

BugFixMode=(0..5) every value fixes it's own unsopported feature or bug in driver or hardware. For drivers 169.xx and 171.xx do not set this parameter to 1. Values from 0 to 5 actually HDR texture formats:

 

0 (R32G32F)-high quality and middle performance,

1 (R32F)-high quality and fast,

2 (A32R32G32B32F)-high quality and very slow,

3 (R16F)-low quality and fastest,

4 (R16G16F)-low quality and fast,

5 (A16R16G16B16F)-low quality and middle performance.

 

The default setting is 3 , I tried switching it on 0 and 1 , looks much better.

I think 3 is using 16 bit, just a guess though.
