This mod simulates HDR Lighting for those that don't have the hardware. It does cause a performance hit, but can be toggled on and off in-game. NOTE: Don't use this if you want to use HDR and AA at the same time. Current drivers provide a workaround fo
This mod adds a fake HDR effect usable by anyone with a sm2.0 graphics card, and which is also fully comptable with AA. There is a speed hit, and it probably doesn't look as good as the real thing either. (Since I don't have a sm3.0 graphics card, and can barely play oblivion without it CTDing anyway, I cant see what the real thing looks like.)
If you are using ATI tray tools, please ensure that you read the installation instructions in the readme!
To install, just extract the contents of the zip file to oblivions base folder. The 'd3d9.dll' file should end up in the same folder as oblivion.exe. There's no need to activate any esps or anything.
The effect can be toggled on and off in game by hitting the '+' key on the numpad. You can also toggle single pixel mode by hitting numpad '-' and toggle AffectMenus by hitting numpad '*'
The shader is easily tweakable; see the readme for details. (I haven't spent much time tweaking it myself, due to oblivions deep and personal hatred of my computer.)
