Thanks, nice work. Always appreciate your efforts even if I habitually tinker with them myself. Sincerest thanks for the heavy lifting portion of the settings on your part.

 

I think I'll grab it and play with the greens/yellows/blues a bit. I liked the richer tones in the earlier pics but understand some details may have been lost with those. Hopefully I can find a happy medium for my tastes.

 

I'm using .9 native gamma ATM. What were you using on the winter maps?

Thanks guys!

Mind that I made heavy use on colour filters to get them balanced (otherwise red and blue would be to dominant) so tweaking them might be a little difficult.

 

For winter settings I used 0.9 gamma. I always preferr to set the game to what I like most as default and than start tweaking it.

 

Agree I also preferred the more fresh colours of the previous settings but I decided to stop tweaking it and creating sth completely new due to the fact that some terrain textures and details appeared washed out. I still have them though so I might come back playing around with it further.

hm, i tested but i cannot get your results. The colors get more saturation when using your package. Gamma set to 0.8

 

When switching off ingame, the vanilla settings without sweetfx gave me much toned down colors. Opposite effect for me - wonder why!?

I triesd these and am much happier, I had stopped using the old winter settings as there was way to much colour for me

Can anyone confirm that his works with windows 10? I have 5tuka's full package downloaded, should I just unzip and copy into the game's main folder?

In Cliffs of Dover, SweetFX causes the game to not load with win 10. It would be nice to have a post processing program that works in win 10, since the ground texture flashing looks really bad right now. Besides that, and the tendency to lose controllers, the game runs and looks very good in win 10.

Since this is the operating system everyone one gets a new PC will be using, it could be pretty important.

OK. It works using reshader. Can anyone suggest settings that might reduce/eliminate texture creep on ground textures? What settings should I be using in Nvidea Control Panel?

I'm dropping the question here, hoping for some help: has anyone been able to access the depth buffer, using Reshade?

I just installed this into my game, its worth a try for guys having issues with gamma or colors being off. I used Stuka's setting as well.

You need Nvidiainspector and choose SparseGrid Transparent Antialiasing x4

Do you know if Nvidia inspector works with windows 10? I have heard that it does not. Can anyone who is getting good results with ground textures post their settings for inspector?

Nvidia Inspector seems to work fine with Win 10

 

Sparse grid or any SS/AA is too much for my Grx card (running high resolution) so have no settings

Sparse Grid 4x does seem to help a lot with reducing the shimmering/creeping effect with ground textures. Thanks for the tip. I still would like to see what other settings people are using with inspector.

Stupid question but HDR on or off with your settings 5tuka ?

No stupid question at all :)

 

For my SweetFx profiles I use those ingame settings:

 

- Ultra Preset

- HDR enabled

- SSAO disabled

- Gamma = 0.9 (winter) or 0.8 (summer)

 

I find that without HDR enabled the lightning especially within cockpits looks worse. I can also not gurantee that my settings look equally well with HDR disabled.

Are you using reshade?

Reshade does have an install (Reshade setup.exe) and you just have to point to the game.

Easy.

The SweetFX folder goes into your IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad \ bin \ game directory. The other files need to be placed into your IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad game folder

 

Be sure to deinsall all files from previous SweetFX clients first. Otherwise you will end up with a faulty SweetFX client that eventually will make your game crash.

Hey Stuka, where do i have to put your custom setting sweetfx_settings.txt ? I am using Reshade, with those various  "...FX" folders in the ReShade folder

Sweet FX works fine on my spec too but Do You know how to setup Reshade (the new version) + Mediator (reshade.me)?

I use his tool in DCS but it doesnt work for my in IL-2 BoS. The tool is very useful.

Don't know if it's related YoYo, but in that screenshot I see that Il2 is set to Direct3D 10/11.

I think it should be at Direct3D 9.

Bingo. It starts but this version looks strange for me. Maybe for IL-2 BoS we must do something more, not only install it? The picture is very dark, poor antialiasing and I didnt see any changes If I did some of correction plus pushed apply and update.

 

Back to Sweet FX 1.5. No problems here like this.
