A new comparison screenshot of my upcoming shader package for HL2 Episode 2. This one will come with a few versions (UHQ, HQ, Lite)...
This screenshot shows the UHQ version.

It looks like it's just sepia tone with higher contrast lighting. Ugh.

If you don't like it, that's fine.

For the record, there is no sepia tone or simple contrast filter applied here. There is some color correction, but there is also depth-of-field, ambient occlusion, adaptive bloom and some post-processing. This beta release still looks a little fuzzy, will clean this up for the release.

I prefer off to on, again. Sorry but high end graphics are just like making all stuffs brurry, like l4d2

When I release the mod, there will be two versions. One will have less of the post-processing effects, but will keep the image more crisp. I think you'll like it ;)

Yeah. I could do without the haze. It would probably look good with HL2 and EP1, as those editions have a jarringly clear atmosphere and low re textures that could stand some subtle blemishes. EP2 looks good with it's current look.

I've learned how to manage the haze now.

The final release will be epic... just wait...!
