Graphics Enhancer for Star Wars Battlefront II. My main objective was to make the game more realistic by sharpening the image, normalizing color saturation, improving game lighting, using a more subtle bloom and making it compatible with ALL the maps (there are some well known graphics enhancers that are glitchy in white maps like Hoth, or in Space). PLEASE GIVE CREDIT IF YOU USE MY MOD.

Description

This mod is a reconfiguration of the 2016 Graphics Mod made by NMir. My main objective was to make the game more realistic by sharpening the image, normalizing color saturation, improving game lighting, using a more subtle bloom and making it compatible with ALL the maps (there are some graphics enhancers that are glitchy in white maps like Hoth, or in Space).

I like how you set up the shaders, very well done - this is the best graphics mod so far for the two classic Battlefronts (yes, it also works with BFI) :D

For further improving the visuals I recommend to enable the FILMICCURVE, which adds some extra lightness in areas which are 'sunlighted', eg. Mos Eisley looks more 'deserty' when you use it ;)

Great to hear it works in BF 1. I'll try filmic curve, but always remember after every setup, try HOTH!! It may look TOO white.
Thanks for the feedback

I used it on Rhen Var in BFI (which is nearly as white as Hoth) ... it was quite white but still playable.
I'll try Hoth tomorrow, thx for the hint!

I learned from playing around with the MasterEffect settings, that the included SMAA is both more accurate and less hardware demanding than the ingame AA ... I recommend, to try it out for yourself (ingame AA [off] - MasterEffect SMAA [1])

I went best with SMAA set like this (while using your Sharpening presets):
//SMAA
#define fSMAAThreshold 0.08
#define iSMAAMaxSearchSteps 64
#define iSMAAMaxSearchStepsDiag 32
#define iSMAACornerRounding 100
#define iSMAAEdgeDetectionMode 2
#define bSMAAPredication 0
#define fSMAAPredicationThreshold 0.01
#define fSMAAPredicationScale 2.0
#define fSMAAPredicationStrength 0.4
#define iSMAADebugOutput 0

Thanks for commenting, I find it a little bright too BUT that effect sort of makes the snow more real right?
Anyways, I'm working on a texture fix especially for Hoth.

My game crashes at startup, I am running a nvidia graphics card (GTX 1060 to be exact). Not sure if there is some fix you may know of?

I also have tested other graphics mods and I get similar problems, the game runs fine without graphics mods.

I can only advise you to do the usual:
Update drivers, reinstall game, try reshade in other games.
If you still have issues, It's beyond my comprehension. May the force be with you,

It is probably just my computer but I seem to lag when I turn the Graphics Mod on. It takes forever to load and exit maps.

It's probably it :) I'm doing mods trying to achieve the best graphical improvements considering modern hardware capabilities... not thinking about performance nor old pcs. Sorry! :(

btw you can try reducing the view distance or ingame bloom. Maybe disabling some features, but it won't look as good as the pictures.

im having the same problem as some have encountered an extraordinarily long load screen. i have bf evolved and a few other mods installed and they are all installed correctly. cant really give you my specs because i dont know how they compare and it seems irrelevant if it runs smoothly otherwise. but its just not going past the load screen when i start a map like hoth. tried it on a couple others and got the same problem. of anyone can respond with helpful advice i would be grateful. thanks.

Try installing it to a fresh install of BF2. Be sure to follow the instructions step by step.

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but the graphics aren't changing.

Edit: Nevermind, fixed.

Is the Battlefront evolved mod required for this?

No. You only need the base game
