Bloom effects in Ghost Recon (The Original)


Recommended Posts

Hey Brennus How does Ravenshield look with this? I'm curious (Although you'll see it less being indoors I suppose.

Also - The DirectX 9 version should probably be used for Ravenshield instead of this version (DX8, Vice City's DX Version), so try the "GTA San Andreas version instead (it is in DX9, the same as Ravenshield)" I suppose the same goes for any other DX8/9 games.

Nice one! :)

Reminds me of the fact that someone from the Splinter Cell Forums managed to fake bump mapping in Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow's Versus Mode.

Hmm...I wonder if that could also be done in Raven Shield - the engine is probably almost the same! :)

sorry for the late response.

Yeah, the graphics for Vegas are definately fixed now with a few simple texted mods. Theres a no blur, no haze, no bloom, fixed nightvision (you can't even use it at stock setting),and a resolution mod (they support very little resolutions), an intro skip, etc.

And since these things are all just visual mods they don't effect punkbuster. On my personal computer I even went in and turned up the anisotropic filtering. They have it defaulted at 4. They give you almost no advanced options, and quite honestly. I don't see a damn difference in any of them. They did a horrible job in porting that.

just curious if anyone has tried this on MP...and using bloom effect to hide behind...like when I pilot hides behind the sun to get a stealthy kill.

thanks to author and Fox for sharing this news :thumbsup:

This mod allows for some very nice shader fx, unfortunately it also requires some serious

hardware to run this at high resolutions.

The images came out way darker and have more contrast than what i see ingame,

it looks like they have some sort of video gamma correction, maybe its because

they were taken from a fraps video and not from the screenshot function??

a gamma of 1.5 and brightness -50 is more or less what it looks like on my system.
