1 comment by Senescent on Jan 6th, 2015

After neglecting this page for quite sometime I've decided to clean everything up a bit. The biggest change is that I've moved GES to a newer version of SweetFX. This should allow it to be used on all versions of FC2. (Including the Steam Fortune Edition!) I've removed a bunch of old comments regarding technical issues as they should be fixed. Just make sure you have your game running on DirectX 9.

A common complaint about GES in the past is that the game is too dark with the mod installed. This is due to the nature of FC2 and the method I've used to create this mod. The default brightness, contrast, and gamma settings can look a bit wonky even on properly calibrated monitors. I suggest tweaking these values in-game until you achieve your desired result. Personally I only need to bump gamma up a bit and then everything looks fantastic. However, everybody's results will differ. Just experiment!

I've also re-cut the original trailer which you can view below.

I hope you enjoy the mod and your time spent in colorful Africa!

Also, should Bloom and HDR be disabled when using this mod? Does anyone have some ready settings for brightness, contrast and gamma?

"и Open FC2 and switch to DirectX 9."

Why doesn't this work when using DirectX 10?

Wonderful idea, just what it needed. How does it change the game so much with under 1 mb of material?

i think it's probably like using resources already available in the game it just changes the parameters or something
