    Same problem... It's still cut off after I set V-Sync ON and Aspect Ratio to AUTO

    Could we get some pics that aren't in pitch black darkness?

    Tried on my 780m, around 35/40 fps average everything maxed out +temporal AA. Quite impressive! I'm uploading a video (quite big) to show how it look on it, but It will be online in 6hours.

    They are still some glitches with the dynamic shadows, but damn it feels so good to have them in the game!!

    Thank you so much TheWorse
    Meanwhile here some screenshots of the video I'm uploading:

    Thank you for your hard work, TheWorse. The DOF effect looks great, unfortunately there are two main issues with it:

    1. DOF effect is too close to Aiden for my taste, which makes it difficult to play the game as I struggle to see what's ahead clearly. It works flawlessly for close objects but it also blurs out not-so-distant objects almost completely. You might want to provide some options like close, far and farther for your DOF effect so that people can choose the one they want to use.

    2. There seems to be a focusing issue. Sometimes I want to look straight forward but an object comes between the character and the far point on the map that I want to see, and that moment the DOF effect automatically focuses on the near object, blurring out everything else- and I end up trying to get that object out of focus to see ahead. I know that's the way the effect is supposed to work, but it's not precise like, let's say, Crysis 2's Quality Mod or ENB modes that provide DOF in Skyrim. The shift of focus from the "focused object" to your "next pointed camera direction" is not instantaneous, it takes about 3-4 seconds for the blur effect at the far destination I want to see to wear off. I guess it needs some tweaking.

    And I have some strange flickering issues with headlights as well (they turn on and off like an ambulance light sometimes) so I'd rather not use your headlight shadows as of now. At least not until they work perfectly.

    Appreciating your effort, and closely following your future updates. :) Hope the feedback helps your tweaking.

    Nice :) But is there a version that keeps the toned down bloom but with the DOF effect disabled? xD

    Please, could someone kindly upload the latest bloom mod on other hosting site like Mega.nz? I don't know why I always got a "connection was reset" page everytime I click the MF link on the first page. :bawl:
    Thank you in advance. :) Nice share btw, thanks to The Worse.

    Do you think there would be any way to re-enable the POMs that were removed? Cobbled surfaces had POMs which were removed. Do some digging, you never know, you could find the on switch ;)

    More bloom (E3 version bugs here) less DOF equals perfect setup.

    Changes in the sky/clouds are welcome too.

    Dynamic shadows turned off here because a lot of bugs at the time.
