    Appreciate the compliment mate.
    About the light halos, technically it's there but really subtle, as can be seen in this image https://flic.kr/p/EgoxHh
    This is because I used a bloom.lib with reduced bloom (by txgt), I personally prefer it that way.

    However if you want you can use the original TheWorse bloom.lib for a much more noticeable effect, like so:

    I don't play W_D anymore but if I did, I'd definitely try your mod.
    So I'm just here to say that your video was kickass! Very well made and nicely edited and synced with the music. Top marks!

    That's caused by my "windy_city.game.xml" file, you could either remove it or use my dry version's XML here [link]. It only rains during cloudy weather with this.

    No, like only when it's supposed to rain according to the vanilla game.

    Thanks!!!! They're looking really nice. I couldn't bear the vanilla color for grass/bushes.

    Hello, after recently installing this mod, I cannot move. Like, mouse does nothing, nor does my keyboard.

    Before I installed it, it was fine? What am I missing here?

    E:/

    Nevermind, ran it as admin and it worked.

    This got me to reinstall watch dogs so thanks!

    But I noticed sweetfx causing a 'The procedure entry point CreateDXGIFactory2' error.

    Any ideas on how to make it work on Win10 64?

    Not that I know of, that's why I made a Reshade alternative that does about the same thing and works on windows 8.1/10. The link is in the "How to install" section in the OP.

    that was first thing i've done.
    nothing changed.

    the game doesn't crash at launch. it's just doesn't react when i click on exe.
    deleting of dxgi helps and the game launches correctly.

    can you explain: which files should be in bin folder?
