Hey, I downloaded this and when I started HLS, after the startup video, the screen remains black and I hear the windows message box 'ding' and the game stops responding. It says something about having the wrong DX version, but I downloaded the newest one from MS. I have an ATi Radeon HD 5770, are its shaders too complex for this?

Yeah, the d3d9.dll from this mod can be a LITTLE fussy. Please try the following from the ENBseries website at enbdev.com:

Open your enbseries.ini file and find the following line:


every value fixes it's own unsupported feature or bug in driver or hardware. For nvidia forceware drivers 169.xx and higher (last tested 174.xx) do not set this parameter to 1 or it will crash (driver bug with R32F texture format), unfortunately these drivers may crash with some other values of this parameter, try yourself. For ATI videocards set this parameter to 1, for old videocards try 5, this may help in some situations.
Values from 0 to 5 actually HDR texture formats: 0 (R32G32F)-high quality and middle performance, 1 (R32F)-high quality and fast, 2 (A32R32G32B32F)-high quality and very slow, 3 (R16F)-low quality and fastest, 4 (R16G16F)-low quality and fast, 5 (A16R16G16B16F)-low quality and middle performance.

Does this overright files from Half-Life: Source, or will it be a copy of the game with updated textures?

This mod overwrites NO files and contains NO textures. It only enhances the way the game's graphics engine renders the game-world. I recommend using this with some of the HD texture packs that are available out there (I use some texture packs in my screenshots and videos)

So, how long until you release a new version? And why is this version 0.23MB, while the Light Version is 0.28 and the normal version before that is 0.25?

Another question, are you working on ways to optimize this for compatibility and performance without sacraficing quality? And is it compatible with other Source Games?

pizzaguylol Jun 4 2011 says:

Dude I love these shaders, but for some reason whenever I use them with my HD model packs the scientists, security guards, soldiers, and G-Man all look horrible. I guess its the normal mapping on the models. Other ENB series dont affect the models in this way for some reason, so I was wondering if there is a setting I can disable in the .ini that would fix this? Thanks.

How do you remove that HUGE logo covering the whole top left corner? The mod itself is great but the damn logo makes the game impossible to play..
