Hi

 

I've tested both SweetFX and the ENB Series in FE, but haven't found any really good settings yet, so if anyone is using any of those and would like to share their settings that would be highly

appreciated.

 

Best regards

Your question got me experimenting a bit.  It quickly became obvious that the lighting levels needed adjustment before I could fool around with color adjustments in SweetFX/ENB.  Shots below show Steven1918's Brequets being massacred by Monty CZ's Avia B534s.

 

First shot shows unmodified environment lighting, while second shot shows first experiment.

 

When I get the lighting levels tweaked to my satisfaction, I'll post them here and then move on to Sweet FX.

ENB for me, but I'm still tweaking here and there.

OK, got an initial test version.  Two .INI files are found below for DL.  The ENVIRONMENT.ini increases the amount of sunshine to roughly high noon on a summer day.  The resulting appearance of the game map varies - some maps are brighter than others.  The increased sunshine also makes aircraft more shiny, as if they had been waxed and polished.  A sample fix to reduce aircraft shine - for Stephen1918's Brequet - is included in the DL.

 

Note this is not a one size fits all situation.  Modders will have to fiddle with .INI settings to get the appearance they desire.

 

EDIT:  In case you want to preserve unique settings in your ENVIRONMENT.ini, the only changes needed are shown below - just paste them into your already existing .ini.

Thanks Geezer!

Regarding SweetFX:
I tested version 1.5.1 which is the last version compatible with Windows XP.
I couldn't get it to work with ingame AntiAliasing enabled in FE2. SweetFX AntiAliasing doesn't look as good as in game AntiAliasing, the wires looks worse in far views. SweetFX give some nice effects, but the AA problem makes it not that good for me anyway.

So I use the ENB Series now.


Attached is my current ENB settings.

Thanks!  Will give ENB a try with your settings.  :biggrin:
