SweetFX Tweak for WOFFue (for Bucksnort SweetFX Package)


Hello fellow WOFFue flyers,

Please find included with this post a very small package that includes my SweetFX settings file and d3d8 initialization files - this is a tweak of the settings file located in the JSGME-friendly Bucksnort SweetFX mod that is available for WOFFue (see the relevant thread for WOFFue on the SimHQ forum to download the Bucksnort package).

Once you've downloaded the Bucksnort package, read the directions included in the "Read Me" file in my package for how/where to copy over my settings file - which should give greater vibrancy, sharpness, and also very subtle bloom in WOFFue. Works particularly well on AMD cards but should work on any graphics card. See the pics. included with this post for a good example of improved grass color, among other things, with the SweetFX tweak.

Happy flying,

Von S :smile:

Hello fellow WOFFue flyers,

For those who like sharp, crisp visuals in their WOFFue, please find included below a zipped file that contains two alternate SweetFX settings files that go with my SweetFX tweaks package (for the Bucksnort SweetFX mod). You will find a "subtle bloom" and "no bloom" settings file included.

See pics. included further below for examples of how the subtle bloom looks (coupled with a Lod Bias value set to -1, by the way) - the scenery is now about as sharp as I can get it in WOFFue on my rig.

Also, for those running WOFFue on AMD cards, as indicated in my posts over on SimHQ, turn off terrain shadows (set to 0) in the relevant d3d8 ini files included with this SweetFX tweaks package, but feel free to enable cloud density and cloud shadow values - enabling cloud density/shadows gives aircraft shadows on the ground too, not only on the aircraft itself. I run a value of 3 for example for cloud density/shadow values, and with terrain shadows set to zero - there is no shadow flickering from my AMD cards. Higher cloud density/shadow values should be fine too, but might slightly shave off some of the framerate.

Happy flying,

Von S :smile:

      View File FM Tweaks for WOFFue
      Hello fellow flyers of WOFFue,
      You will find enclosed in the attached zip file 27 tweaked FMs for engined-up aircraft currently not present in WOFFue: a 150hp Fokker Dr.1, a late Albatros D.II 180hp, a Nieuport 25/27 165hp variant, a tuned up late Sopwith Tripe, a tweaked Nieu. 28, a tuned up Fokk. Eindecker IIa, a late Sopwith Pup, the rare Nieu. 23bis, a field mod of the Alb. D.I, and three variants of the SPAD 7 (150/180/220hp). Also included is a tweaked two-gun Tripe, Camel and Fokk. D.VII variants, as well as an Albatros D.III Oeffag variant, an improved Albatros D.Va 200hp, three subvariants of the SPAD 13 (200/220/235hp), and tweaked Nieuports 10, 11, and 16. Please read the enclosed "Read Me" file for more info. on the FM tweaks. The FM tweaks are JSGME program enabled, for convenience. Simply move the aircraft folders that you will find into the MODS folder of your WOFF user directory, toggle on/off with the JSGME enabler, and go fly. A big thank you to all the WOFFue modders and the good folks at OBD Software for making such an enjoyable sim. Those who fly these 27 and similar models in First Eagles 2 will become comfortable quickly with the FM tweaks, since they are similar across both sims.
      Von S
      NOTE: Only load one of the SPAD 7 and SPAD 13 variants at a time via the JSGME enabler, since WOFFue only holds one SPAD 7 and 13 folder that can be modded. The same rule applies to the 110 and 130hp Camel variants. The Oeffag Albatros D.III replaces the standard mid-series Albatros D.III in WOFFue.
      DISCLAIMER: All Von S mods, for FE2, SF2, also WOFFue, are subject to the CombatAce "freeware" terms of agreement. Mods may be shared with others, included on other media devices, also modded further, providing that original documentation and/or credit is included, and providing that the mods remain free to use. Von S mods shall not be sold, resold, etc., and Von S takes no responsibility for injuries or fixations that may result from flying heavily tweaked FMs or from attempts to enjoy real flying without aid or instruction from a qualified flight instructor.
