    First of all i must say ERMERGERD WAUW! TheWorse has done an epic job here imo - i can finally play this game the way i expected it to play on release day...

    The main improvement for me is the stuttering fix, it was getting to the point where i was reluctant to play the game because of the stuttering - this is not something i would expect from a system with specs such as mine, so for that alone, KUDOS TheWorse :)


    Now to my point:

    I'm not sure if this has already been posted here, i did try to search but i'm not sure if what i'm searching for is correct (lol)

    Basically i'm wondering if theres any way to increase the view distance restriction imposed by the "blurr" about 50m away from the player cam? I've no idea what the technical term for this would be (probably why i can't find it in the config files)

    Could someone point me in the right direction? :)

    The Worse i really appreciate your and others work here. Is it possible for future versions to remove that awfull effect (cartoon not realistic colors), when slow motion is enabled? Thanks a million for reply.

    Maybe you should include a file that changes the background to have "THE WORSE" written in the upper right corner or something. So people know the mod is going.

    theworse,you are doing a great job but don't change the color or,at least,make two versions.One with vanilla colours and one with your colors.I already have my sweetfx preset and i don't want to change it

    TheWorse and the others, your work is amazing !

    Hi !

    I just registered to thank you !

    Currently I am using TheWorse0.7+upd1.3+BossDoFv2 (Sorry I didn't like at all the default DOF) + Awakening E3 2012 SweetFx preset (don't sure it really works).

    First, the result is way more beautiful than previously.
    Second, it's a lot smoother. I managed to enable ultra shadows and txaa2x (before I was using high shadows and Temporal SMAA) and keep the game playable !

    I am using a SSD to compensate the lack of video memory.

    So, TheWorse, it's your creation. You make it to your tastes, for you before the other. So don't pay attention to whinings unless you find them interesting for YOUR mod. If people are not happy, just don't use it.

    I am following your work with attention. I'll test Vaas DOF to see.

    Thank you again and good luck !

    Hi VAAS. Your last version is very nice. But i have a request. Please add more DOF when driving. When driving and moving with camera looking closer DOF is enabled, that's ok. But when camera is looking forward, no DOF. I know that you need to see road and cars etc. But you can add DOF for instance for 100m ahead of car. It looks amazing then. Hope i expained it. Keep it up, i really like your DOF settings :)

    People I'll say this one more time. Colorgrading doesn't mean color changes like sweetfx, colorgrading is included inside the engine itself and works different. This will be modified to be able to change the lighting of the day and night and also when storms comes. This is not a sweetfx alternative, this is how it has to be, and there will be different presets for it but you have to understand that this is not forced on you, this are changes that I have to make. If you still don't understand you'll have to try another mod or wait until I show how day, night and storm is going to be to make your own conclusions about it. But until then stop crying about the colors.

    TheWorse - for many reasons others have explained, You are wasting your time on the colour grading. However, it is your time and your mod, so fill your boots if you really must!

    As long as you release a version which leaves the perfectly good colours as default, as well as others you're working on, that's fine.

    But, you could be working on other, better things :), like...

    One thing I would love to see in the game is puddle splashes, when you run through them, or when cars drive through them. No idea if this can be done, but it would be sweet.

    This is beta and it is only natural, if not important for these early steps in modding to push the boundaries and find out what works and what doesn't.

    I'm at the point where I'd rather wait for a few weeks and 1.0 to get back to this. There are currently too many glitches to really play with this. Like the "wanna go blind?" bloom. :D

    But again: He has to be able to try things out. This is his mod. A modder primarily mods for himself, then shares it with the community. He can listen to feedback, he can fulfill request, but he doesn't have to. ;)
