This is a result of Dynamic Time-based Tonemap.

You can disable it, apply the patcher again after this.

I will contact the time based tone mapping author to modify the code to have better results. This is a result of the "lowlum" value. Set it to 0.4 while in game and you will see that it will fix your issue.

During the day the brightness might be a bit low without the time based dynamic Tonemap. Increase the "gray" parameter as well and the r__brightness.

you can actually mitigate this issue a lot by changing the tonemap_adaptation value from 10 to 1, which keeps the "eyesight adjusting to light" effect but makes it a lot less sudden. The dynamic tonemap script sets this to 10 by default, so make sure to edit that script if you find a value you like.

It's now mitigated with my own version of the dynamic Tonemap script included in the addon archive.

Hey Grok, can you describe what exactly your addon do. Does it improve performance?

I cannot say that it will increase performance at it depends on your current graphics parameters.

It provides balanced graphics parameters for nice graphics, good framerate, and nice lightning.

Most people reported much better performances.

does it affect fps at all?

It depends on your current settings. These are reasonable high end parameters. If you have a low end computer check the tweaking part of the addon description.

For some reason, my game looks completely black except for the sky.

Is there something I did wrong?

Here's a picture: I.imgur.com

Edit: nvm I'm just an idiot that didn't install a compatibility patch.

Is this compatible with DX8?

It *should* work for DX8 but just use the patcher. But I guess that some graphics parameters will be set too high since you run DX8. This is not a preset for potato computers.

Can this pathcher be made to run without aggressor weather and with Michikos Weather?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Grokitach Author
Grokitach

Yes. But I'm not sure about the in game shadows and lightning balance since I only tested it with Agressor weather.

Also, Michiko weather breaks the stealth addon. So I rather recommend you to try the Agressor weathers.

I didn't knew Michiko's broke Stealth mod! Thanks Grokitach.
I would rather have Stealth than Michiko's.

Stealth has a patch for Michiko's Weather; I'm assuming this comment was from before that was available?

(Or does the patch not work & I haven't realized it?)

Is there a way to remove the effects of this patcher, it made everything way too dark so i put back my backup gamedata and user file and now my screen is completely white in game, thanks

Clear shader cache most likely.

Reverting to your old config should work 100% if you also disable the addons you installed alongside the patcher. Clear shader cache after that.

Can this mod be used with Mod Organizer? I tried setting it up according to instructions, but ran patcher script in the MO VFS (otherwise it doesn't do anything). The result is a mostly black render in game. I suspect the changes from the patcher have not been reflected in the files, but I wouldn't know how to confirm.

Hi, I've done everything as described, but now I "lost" all textures. everything is white... how can I fix this? or undo the changes? just restore the user.ltx? how do I do it, from the launcher menu?

Hey, So I've decided that I don't really want this addon because it still causes FPS Drops for me even after all the steps so once I've deleted all of the mods and the shaders and the folders they're supposed to be in and deleted the "Groks Optimized Graphics Patch(er)" (This Addon) I am still experiencing the 5-10 FPS Drops as I was not before I installed the Addon. Is there anything else I have to remove or have I not removed the Addon Correctly Specifically the "Groks Optimized Graphics" Addon. Again (This Addon). If I'm just confused then how am I supposed to 'Manually" Remove this Addon Completely so I don't experience these FPS Drops as I dont want the Addon and I have no graphical differences or effects but am suffering a performance loss still. (PLEASE HELP)..

So no matter what I do, (reinstalling this mod, uninstalling this mod along with the ones I installed and just tinkering with everything settings and mods) i have a very dark game and a really short radius fog that follows me everywhere. I literally cannot see doors anymore. I tried deleting shader caches at least tens of times, individually disabling mods to see what's causing that. I've even launched vanilla Anomaly and it's the same result. Tweaking with hemi and gamma doesn't seem to affect much... Any help would be appreciated.

edit: problem seems to go away in directx9 i still want to play in dx11

i fixed the goddamn thing by chance. disabled glossy surfaces ssr and installed its compatibility patch for enhanced shaders instead. i put the compatibility patch's priority over the enhanced shader mod and voila its fixed now. although i have ****** fps now, i am a happy breeker.

Which skyboxes can be installed with this mod? Is there something better than vanilla suitable for the current cubemap?

The sky is too bright, sometimes it has a completely white color, clouds are impossible to distinguish. Sky Bloom Fix does not help to solve the problem.

Hello friend, will this work for me?
I'm using
"Cinematic VFX" Particle Effects Addon (3.7) Moddb.com
Michiko's Weather Revamp (3.0) Moddb.com and
Screen Space Shaders [ Update 11.3 ] [ 1.5.2 - 1.5.1 ] Moddb.com

I left out Enhanced Shaders and Color Gradings because my game turns almost entirely black, the sun is barely visible, and yes, i deleted the previous shader files before launching the game with this ES enabled
