BLADE of LIGHT - Blade of Darkness Enhanced.

Modern Graphics upgrade for the game using ENBseries 0.242 ( Graphic enhancements: HDR color correction, SSAO, SSIL, BLOOM, DOF, FLARES, and other custom PIXEL SHADERS...

Blade Of Light mod. Enhanced gameplay where lighting plays a part in the strategy. Use the light bearing blades to slice your way into the heart of the Darkness. Cast a light on your weapon (or any object you are carrying) to help you explore and fight in the dark.

---Blade of Light Description---

The amazing lighting of the game is enhanced through Realtime color correction and image post-processing techniques. However its not just a visual update. Now the light itself is a factor to account for in the player strategies. An archer standing against the sun will be hard to see. Circle your enemies so the light doesn't hit you in the eyes or you'll be fighting silhouettes. Fog is really dense so watch your step, it's a long way down...

The intention is to create a strong contrast between light and Darkness. Increase the immersive aspect of the game by enhancing the lighting quality while preserving as much as possible the original color palette and lighting design. Sunlight is bright and intense but most of the interior areas are really dark. Torches can't illuminate very far. Is very hard to fight your way trough the darkness so all weapons now can glow in the dark (and not only in presence of orcs like the old blades of Gondolin). You can switch the weapon light on or off at any time. That creates spectacular fights in the darkness. While you are circling your foes, the shadows dance over the majestic environments like no other game can do.

Enjoy again this timeless gem from a time when games required actual skill and pushed you to the limit of your abilities. See the skeletons relentlessly beat the crap out of you in beautifully animated fighting choreographies . Orcs move so fast that...well, if you think, you are dead. Move, circle, jump out of their reach. Be patient, look for an opening, find a weakness, study their fighting patterns and... you may hold a chance.

Off to beat the darkness, Light-bringer!

Hey man!

I haven't played this hell of a game since i don't know how long, and this mod looks amazing!
Unfortunately, nothing at all changes graphics wise :|
I dumped the 4 Blade of Light folders into the game directory, then opened with notepad to add those two lines at the end of Nothing changes when I launch the game.

I m on windows 10 but doubt that has anything to do with it?
Could I be missing something?

edit: I 'm on GOG version
edit2: Also tried on a 1.0.1 copy, same results, hmpf.
edit3: The launcher crashes if I try to setup r3dfx, so I use rOpenGL if that is a problem.

My game crashes on Amazon's first map.

After getting the spear and the key in the room with the diagonal arrow traps, I run to the door in the cave. I destroy the two zombies and use the key, as soon as I try to move to the area behind it, the game crashes.

Any idea what I might do to get past that point?

I like the mod, definitely a technical improvement, but too much bloom. The HUD looks like that of an old vector game.
Effects can be adjusted in \Bin\enbseries.ini, unfortunately I have to restart the .EXE for every change made to the .INI. (instructions at You can assign various functions to Shift + <Key> combinations, so you can switch them off and on in real time.
I like the interactive menu in ReShader more, but thanks for getting ENB working with this game, I got BoD solely to play it with this mod.

Nice work :) but I can't push my res higher than 640*480 so menu and game HUD looks very bad :/
Any ideas?

I just found out about this game and I really liked it. But its a shame that I can't make this mod work on windows 10 x64 =/ Can someone help me?
I did as instructed, but I don't have NT compatibility. Non modded game loads with all compatibilities except 98/95. Modded - works only without compatibility on others crash after video or just shows black screed with sound. When game starts there's no enb logo and when I press shift + enter - no menu. I tried renaming video to video.bak. didn't work. Maybe someone made it work on windows 10 and would be willing to help me.

Very good mod but it was too orange and blurry for my liking. I adjusted the ENB settings for a cleaner, moodier Dark Souls-ish look. You can download the files here:

See ya

Exactly what I was looking for, thanks!

As a guy who generally doesn't like blur in games at all, I find it very hard to play the game with such a huge amount of blur.
