    Ya, I am very glad you got it working LtGeorge! Ya, Parabellum's settings work very well! His settings for the mod really beat doing it yourself for hours on end... Just re-emphasize 8) TS

    Mate, you may want to check previous pages in this thread... Check page 5. Parabellum has already slaved away and made some settings with the bloom feature. He has a very comfortable setting, but he has disabled the color palette change and motion blur, but you can enable those if you wish... check it out!! TS
  6. I'll pleased when this rig is in the sim... TS

    Of course... make sure to get the right config settings... On winter landscapes this mod truly shines...It has a very bright tundra feel... and like I said, fiddle with it until you get the desired effect you want and then just go with it... Depending on which mod version you download and choose, you experience little to no change in FPS... as experienced in Lockon and IL2 community... TS

    Oh I totally agree Yskonyn, it absolutely works well in that area... Just looking at the previous pages in this thread, and looking at the screenshots of people who have tweaked it and have it working as desired, just shows that this mod is a bonus of sorts... and yes, for the nah sayers, as a suggestion: try fiddling with it a bit more till you get something you can tolerate... and yes, I agree, the default setting certainly is ugly... setting more mild works great though! 2 cents!

    Delete all the mod files, and give it a go again... Whatever you do, do not tweak with the config before testing it with the default settings... should work... If not, take a screen capture of your install... TS

    I am not 100% sure, but GH_Lieste and everyone else, with your configs... You may want to turn such effects like and SSAO, WATER, MOTIONBLUR, REFLECTION..COLORCORRECTION..OFF... Eventhough these effects may or may not be visually present, they still try to access the shaders involved and in turn create too many processes, lag. Like I said before this mod comes bundled with a number effects, and the goal is to isolate the bloom-hdr lighting mod. However I actually dont know if these other effects work or not, but if they do, and your fps is strong and healthy... by all means KEEP THEM ON! By the way ParaBellum, again, this is an awesome shot!!! Its very atmospheric, the landscape and especially the horizon is very authentic looking...really increases the immersion by ten-fold :biggrin: TS

    GH_Lieste, you may want to try various versions before dismissing...Also too, turn off the other features to this mod, (motion blur etc...) and leave only the bloom. The author's site is right here: http://boris-vorontsov.narod.ru/download_en.htm Like I was saying before, the people in the Lockon and rfactor community have it working flawlessly and its pretty much a staple. I believe they use one of the GTA versions... Also too, it could merely be your card or card's drivers... And Chuikov, you are spot on....ParaBellum certainly has the settings down... This is my fav by far!!! And with this before and after shot, it really gives the impression that SB pro has an actual lighting engine... also too, it really gives objects a lot of depth, they dont feel so static and 2d anymore... Good work!! TS

    Deja wolf is spot on, you also see it on landscapes a lot... but yes, wiki probably will explain it better than me: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_rendering Also too, if you wish to see this very exact mod used in other directx apps, but in realtime, here are some youtube clips of it being used: This user has also enabled the MotionBlur part of this mod, and reveals his setting in his video info (mind you, turning this off will save a lot of FPS) This is an example of it being used very well in a flight sim...The Lockon community enjoys this mod quite a bit.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA_1MLmteNc The user here is showcasing several games of it being used, Mafia ,manhunt etc... He also toggles it on and off in each segement for the viewer to get an idea of its effect... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWW4pjCY5FQ If you notice in all these videos, the settings these people implemeneted really make the app run at a very acceptable FPS... making it very playable... Good luck and show us some feedback!! TS

    wow, there is certainly a big difference in those screens... This example in itself shows that this should be used by everyone who plays this sim: BEFORE AFTER It even adds a bit of lighting to the tank... To explain your fps loss, this mod also comes bundled with a couple of other mods. There is a reflection mod included, which should disabled in the .ini , also there is a water mod which too should be disabled... SO yes, the file named enbseries.ini is the config file that controls all the effects and there are quite a few parameters that are adjustable but thankfully theres a readme that explains what each one does.... Good luck!! TS

    After you install the mod into the SB directory, where the SB exe is, load up the sim and hit shift-f12... It will allow you to toggle the bloom effect on an off... There are config docs in the installation of this mod which allow you to make your own personal changes to the effect...If you find the default setting too bright, turn it down a bit. To do that, open the config docs and find the line which allow you to alter brightness and set it to a lower value... then hit SAVE to save changes... Do trail an error till you get the one you perfer... TS
