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!

Very good mod but it was too orange and blurry for my liking. I adjusted the ENB settings for a cleaner, moodier Dark Souls-ish look. You can download the files here: Www72.zippyshare.com

As a guy who generally doesn't like blur in games at all, I find it very hard to play the game with such a huge amount of blur.

Hey man, whatever happened to the update? The whole idea with fixing the 4:3 ratio by supersampling for widescreen monitors - not possible after all, is it? Real shame how this can't be done seemingly, and also that it seems the hyperborean mod is not compatible with the glide render.. any chance you can release an OpenGL version of the mod? :)

hello. nice looking mod, but i can't play with deapth of field, and this for 2 reasons:

theres a far and near DOF, but i want to clearly see my shiny knight armor...

and more importantly, UI infos (health, enemie's health..) are blurred too most of the time!

is it going to change? :)

Try droping this into your /bin folder. Overwrite or rename the old one.
This DOF acts more like a you want. The area in focus goes from the character to the point you are looking.
The HUD is still blured. No fix for that.
