VR Shaders for IC Pass, Clear Water and Texture fixes


speed-of-heat

Recommended Posts

Kegetys mod has the highest performance. 
 

my variant with clear water (and some of @Taz1004’s additions) maintains the best compromise between performance and visual quality.

 

I don’t know if it’s compatible with his smoke fix.

What is this clear water and how it differs from the version of Kegetys?

Err the Kegetys version of the mod has opaque water, one of the changes to 2.5.6 was to introduce translucent water, my variant returns that, but it costs you perf.

With standard version, helicopters rotors are invisible and depending of the lighting the reflections from cockpit (gauges, displays, hud glass and canopy) are pretty exaggerated, someone suffer the same?

Curious what folks are using for #define MASKSIZE  in the _HMD.hlsl file?

 

I have Vive Cosmos Elite using 5.25 and curious if it's too much?

Just keep reducing it until you can see the mask in the headset, then bump it back up slightly so you can't. Voila... that's the value for your headset. On my Rift S I have it set to 5.75, but that's a little bigger than necessary so that I can record the desktop window without capturing any of the mask in the video.

For whatever reason this mod is causing huge lag spikes whenever I change aircraft in the mission editor.

Hey thanks for sharing this!

 

I'm having an issue with the Mi-8. The sight is invisible. It's just like there is no glass there at all. Am I the only one? 

I just tested using the The Clear Water version of the MOD  and was able to see the Mi-8 sight. 

  • Furthermore I was also able to confirm that the The standard mod + @Taz1004 texture fixes  version also made the sight invisible in the Mi-8 but it came back after I reinstalled the mod and that was strange!  (Maybe rebuilding the fxo and megashaders2 contents in Saved Games was the fix?)
  • Also as noted by @5ephir0th, the "Gazelle" helicopters rotors are invisible with this Mod and Helicopter Cockpit Glass is also missing.
  • The new A4E Cockpit Red Radar Filter is also invisible with this shader mod.
  • I did gain an average of 5 FPS!

Moving forward I will just switch between different versions of this shader mod, Kegetys original mod and Mustangs 2.5.6_Shadereffects 1.3. 

I have little doubt that when ED releases Open Beta 2.7 and the new clouds, most of the shader mods will need to be updated or get deprecated.

Depends on how you install it, Any mod should be installed using OvGme or similar tooling otherwise you will have to do a repair.

If the issue issue is with the standard version, you might want to ping Kegetys on his thread.

 

also. It’s this from Kegetys original mod:

Quote

 

Plane cockpit is missing/transparent?

This seems to happen randomly when the shaders for the cockpit were just compiled. Re-entering the plane/restarting the mission or DCS should fix it and it should not happen any more when the shaders are already compiled.

 

 

on bullet 2 , 3 and 4 were those present on the standard mod or on clear water, again I don’t have the a4, and while I have the gazelle, I have never flown it?

 

for reference I nearly always run the clear water version, with mustangs shader mods, except for testing.
 

I suspect you are correct, it will require a rewrite, depending on what they do with clouds, but that will be for Kegetys to do...

It's Simple Transparency that's causing it.  You can simply set it to 0 but then you'll lose simple transparency altogether.  I fixed it in attached "forward_def_ps.hlsl"

 

Also attached is NVG blur reduced in case anyone don't want blurry cockpit with NVG. "NVD_HDR_fx"

Why is it blurry anyway?  Is it supposed to be blurry?  I used NVG goggles before and they were noisy but not blurry.

 

Also, sun.fx looks like it's identical to default file.  I think it can be deleted.

Hello Taz, I tried to install your file but it was detected and rejected by DCS. I placed it in the file Bazar\shaders\PostEffects. Did i do something wrong?

if the aircraft hasn't been used before then it will need to generate the cockpit and shaders etc... thats the only thing i can think of

This broke my game, I tried the first and the 3rd shader pack, with the first one the game boots but I couldn't get in the server I usually play, it just sits on the loading screen for ever, I also tried loading a single player mission and it just hangs in the loading screen.

The 3rd pack the game doesn't even open, I get an error straight away, luckily I made a backup of the shader folder.

as has been said many times it takes a LONG time to load the first time in game, and the first time an aircraft is loaded as the shaders are compiled at that time.  The only version that will work in a multiplayer (where IC is set) environment is the 3rd.

 

You should always use a tool like OVGME or MODMANFX etc to manage installs of this type.

If you're referring to NVG part, it doesn't work by itself.  You have to install this mod first.
