The HUD is blurred, I'm sadly thinking all blur is photoshop...

Lol, it's not photoshop, I swear ;)

The Depth of Field is added to the entire scene as a post-processing effect, so occasionally is blurs the HUD, but only when you are looking in the distance. I'm not sure how to exclude the HUD entirely...

In-game you will be able to toggle the effect on and off in real-time, or just look at something nearby to clear up the hud.

It really adds to the gameplay experience... trust me, you'll see!

I have a couple crappy vids up in my profile if you're interested....

The DOF doesn't have a clear focal point, you might want to work on that.

Will this work for the other Half-Life 2 games as well?

I am going to release a separate version for HL2. This mod will technically 'work' with HL2, but the settings won't be quite right for that game as it runs on a different version of the Source engine.

I have a BETA demo video of the HL2 version here:
Moddb.com

The effects in the video are still in development; the final release should be a little brighter and clearer overall.

FYI, my rig is a Dell Precision M6500 Laptop, i7 720QM, 8GB Ram, NVidia QuadroFX 3800M GPU with 1GB Vram.

The GPU is not made for gaming, but it gets me by ;)
