Incredible mod.
Would it be possible to make it compatible with DLTX since it also replace the game .exe ?

I see that a lot of mods are dependent on it, so I'll make it a priority to merge with DLTX. The solution is not immediately obvious to me, but I will try to get in contact with the author.

EDIT: Done!

I did a patch for BaS support. It's not perfect but it works. It took me some time to try each scope and be as unobtrusive as possible while still seeing the fog moving around.
If there is a missing scope or an issue, let me know.
As a bonus, I added the effect for the binoculars, but you won't see the surrounding. You would only be able to see the fog moving around as you move the camera, the effect isn't intrusive.
The mod's author can add it in the download files !
-Link deleted : Added in the description, go get it !-
You have to replace directly the file in gamedata, do not use a mod manager, it won't work.

This looks incredible! I've seen the concept vid sometime ago and tought it old take a long, long time to be out lol

I'm waiting some more votes to download this as I'm kinda paranoid about .exes, but congrats on such a clever solution for better scopes without the performance hit ;D

Edit: Go for it. Absolutely amazing, even more now with DLTX support!!

This is great. The outer scope darken is much needed for 2D scope immersion!

Would a DX10 version be possible????? Would be a nice option as it offers better performance for some users.

I will make a DX10 version in the near future but I want to make sure everything works on DX11 first, including eventually adding support for other large engine modifications like DLTX

How much of a performance overhead is to be expected on part of the bitcoin miner?

I respect how you understand your niche and strengths in the competitive market of anomaly scope mods ;)
Sounds incredible and if it can play along beef NVGs, the reflections shader and few other indispensables, I don’t see how this would not become the next vanilla incorporated feature in Anomaly, fantastic work.

Incompatible with other shader mods? I have Beef NVG, Enhanced Shaders and Glossy SSR shader mods installed, after installing this one and cleaning shader cache I get this error on startup:

Uh oh. It should definitely be compatible with Beef's NVG at-least, but I'm not sure about the others. It seems I've left an unused definition in the shader `uniform float4 shader_param_4;` which may be causing the problem, though I'm not sure why that would cause a crash. I'll look into it.

It is compatible, just delete the night vision file and this is it.

Well I installed Beef NVG, Enhanced Shaders and Glossy SSR and I couldn't reproduce the crash. If you want, you can try deleting the line `uniform float4 shader_param_4;` in the .ps file yourself and see if it works. I'll push an update soon that does that since it's unused anyway.

Just got done implementing DLTX. The mod author did a very good job of making it intuitive, so it was much easier than I expected. Everything seems to be working.

Is default setting (scope_factor 0.66) the most recommended preset? Or what's your most preferred setting? Great work btw, can't believe it that you finally released the work, many thanks :)

The default settings are my preferred settings yes. Personally the lowest I will go is 0.5, anything lower and it can become difficult to acquire targets further away. Glad you like it!

OMG THIS IS PERFECT! I've been lurking for years modding stalker but i only recently started making my own. I plan on finishing it sometime this year and huge part of it was just fixing the immersion breaking aspects of vanilla. I reactivated and replaced all the 2D scopes because the reality is that they are less immersion breaking than the alternative, but it felt like something was missing. PIP scopes is very overrated (great and ambitious mod, absurd tradeoffs) but i felt like something lightweight that modernizes 2D scopes would make using them objectively more appealing than PIP. Here it is. Excellent work

Hey! cool mod, waited a long time!
But there is a problem - the scope_radius, which the mod sets manually, does not work correctly. It puts 4.0 when 3.5 looks great!
By the way, I have a 21x9 monitor, Maybe this is a problem?
Thanks!

Interesting. I have not tested it on 21x9 so it could be an issue. You can change the scope values in scopeRadii.script to be bigger if you need

The patch for BaS won't work, the folder in it in gamedata folder is called "script" instead of "scripts" and it won't overwrite files from the mod, keep in mind about that and rename the folder in patch to "scripts"
