BLADE of LIGHT - Blade of Darkness Enhanced.

Modern Graphics upgrade for the game using ENBseries 0.242 (www.enbdev.com). Graphic enhancements: HDR color correction, SSAO, SSIL, BLOOM, DOF, FLARES, and other custom PIXEL SHADERS...

Blade Of Light mod.  Enhanced gameplay where lighting plays a part in the strategy.  Use the light bearing blades to slice your way into the heart of the Darkness. Cast a light on your weapon (or any object you are carrying) to help you explore and fight in the dark.

---Blade of Light Description---

The amazing lighting of the game is enhanced through Realtime color correction and image post-processing techniques. However its not just a visual update. Now the light itself is a factor to account for in the player strategies. An archer standing against the sun will be hard to see. Circle your enemies so the light doesn't hit you in the eyes or you'll be fighting silhouettes. Fog is really dense so watch your step, it's a long way down...

  The intention is to create a strong contrast between light and Darkness. Increase the immersive aspect of the game by enhancing the lighting quality while preserving as much as possible the original color palette and lighting design. Sunlight is bright and intense but most of the interior areas are really dark. Torches can't illuminate very far.  Is very hard to fight your way trough the darkness so all weapons now can glow in the dark (and not only in presence of orcs like the old blades of Gondolin). You can switch the weapon light on or off at any time. That creates spectacular fights in the darkness. While you are circling your foes, the shadows dance over the majestic environments like no other game can do.

Enjoy again this timeless gem from a time when games required actual skill and pushed you to the limit of your abilities. See the skeletons relentlessly beat the crap out of you in beautifully animated fighting choreographies . Orcs move so fast that...well, if you think, you are dead. Move, circle, jump out of their reach. Be patient, look for an opening, find a weakness, study their fighting patterns and...  you may hold a chance.

Off to beat the darkness, Light-bringer!

After loading up a game that had the mod working perfectly, my blade will no longer light up with the press of the key, is anyone else having this problem?

As it's explained in the instructions to start the mod for saved games you should open the F1 menu, press 1 and then exit the F1 menu. The "Blade of light on" message will appear. then just hit 1 any time to turn the light on or off.

The text is not in a different layer so it gets blurred by the DOF and BLoom. If you need to read the text hit shift+F12 to disable the graphics temporarily.

I got the mod working and I can get to the menu but when I press start game and it goes to the character selection it looks Really REALLY grainy and blurry I can barely read the words that describe the character. Am I doing something wrong? I followed the readme to A tee. There is only one thing that confused me you said in the readme "Execute "nglide_config.exe". That's where you can actually set the resolution." I can't find "nglide_config.exe" and I think thats why it's all grainy because the resolution is at 640X480 like in the readme and my resolution is 1600x900. If anyone can help that would be grand.
