Awful Bloom


Recommended Posts

I agree, it looks terrible.

 

You can edit your startup.cfg file and set bloom to 0 there, and that removes the effect when HDR is on.

If you change ingame settings it re-applies it though.

 

[KEY = graphics]
    3dhud = 0
    adapter = 0
    bloom_enable = 0
    desktop_center = 1
    detail_rt_res = 1024
    draw_distance = 0.54500
    fps_counter = 1
    fps_limit = 0
    full_height = 720
    full_width = 1280
    fullscreen = 0
    gamma = 0.80000
    grass_distance = 100.00000
    hdr_enable = 1
    land_anisotropy = 2

........ etc

Thanks for this! Never knew about bloom before but now I know what that God awful effect I was seeing before was. Completely unnecessary.

 

However, having said that, no doubt Luke on his apologist high-horse will be here soon to defend it.

Speaking of unnecessary....

I'm so honored that you think so highly of me, but no, I am not a fan of the bloom setting, either.
