'Better Lighting with no FPS hit' v1.1.  

By NeilMc

______________________________________________________________

Description:

NOTE: Version 1.1 as This mod replaces 'Ultra Real Lighting With No FPS Hit', (my prior mod under the name NMC), for this mod which I think gives a better lighting effect.

When I first played S.T.A.L.K.E.R , I found the visuals although generally stunning, a bit unclear and dark, even on sunny days. I assumed this was related to user.ltx settings (not the game itself)and so I adjusted them to what I thought to be better. You decide!

This mod is a 'user.lxt file' that adusts visual settings to enhance lighting and make the game appear clearer without affecting frame-rates, which I'm sure you would all like to hang on to!

This mod should give-

* Brighter clearer lighting
* Better Contrast
* Better 'eye adaptation' to light (ie. look at the ground, then up at the clouds and watch the bloom effect fade as the eye adapts...)

Notes:

I use an ATI x1950 (AGP) graphics card and the wonderful 'Float 32 mod'.

Installation

1.) Make a copy of your original 'user.ltx' file found in your 'STALKER_SHOC' folder
( the full path is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\STALKER-SHOC ) 

2.) Extract the mod from the RAR folder and place the new 'user.ltx' file in your STALKER_SHOC folder 

( the full path is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\STALKER-SHOC )

3.) NOTE: DO NOT ADJUST GAMMA, CONTRAST OR BRIGHTNESS in the in-game settings- as this appears to ignore my settings and returns them to default for some unknown reason. Just load a game and play. 


______________________________________________________________


Uninstallation:

Replace my user.ltx file with your original saved copy.
