  • ENB Series for Arma2 and AO

    Not sure if any of you will find this interesting at all but here I go.

    Back in my FS9 day's the community came across something called ENB series. It's coding or software or whatever you want to call it.. Well, some russian genius named Boris Vorontsov managed to take the coding and turn into into a set of files that can be applied to ANY game. What it does is it takes the colors and adjust them to be realistic and better looking. It creates darker shadows and personally makes the sun's impact on a game more realistc. The video below is the ENB series with the standard file that became available years ago.



    I find that AO is not very pretty and seems to have a white film to it and this mod takes care of it. it's not something you need to put in a command line but rather drop it into your root ArmA2 folder. When you start the game it automatically becomes activated and you can turn it on or off via CTRL+SHIFT+F12 at any point.

    Here is the tuned version of the ENB Series the FS9 community uses.

    You can go into the file and adjust any of the settings to make the game darker increasing the strength of the shadows or increase the bloom effect.

    Try it out if you want and report back if you think it's pointless or if it does impress you.

    To those who are worried... THERE IS NO FPS HIT WITH THIS MOD.

        BLLLOOMMMM LOTS OF BLLLLOOMMM. I can never understand why people think more bloom = better graphics.

        The hungry, ignorant man immediately grasps that he is handed a fish, but is bewildered when handed a net. The man who shivers in the cold thinks happily of the man who invites him to sit by his fire, and somewhat poorly of the man who loans him an axe, flint and steel.

          So does it work for ARMA?

            Understand that the video is not a representation of the file i have provided. The settings that come with the file have the bloom toned done a TON so don't feel worried by the video.

            Could people post pictures to show the comparison for AO with ENB activation and without it on? Just so people can get an idea of what they can expect.

            @HOT,

            I haven't tried it with ARMA but it should work with ARMA. I can imagine that it would make it look awesome and possibly revive the series :)

                  Well from the video it looked like it made dark things darker and light things lighter.

                    I hate repeating myself but DO NOT USE THE VIDEO AS A MEANS OF JUDGING THE MOD. The file I have provided tones down the Bloom alot and is really meant for color correction and isn't as dark as the video.

                      If you would post snap shots without the ENB I think we all could look at the difference. But just looking at them these pictures are INSANE looking and just look so beautiful.

                        Is this response after testing it or just assuming you think there will be lag.

                          Im assuming that anything that increases graphical eye candy will add fps drop AKA lag. This is a fair assumption in a game that allready has HUGE problems with fps unless your running a 10 by 10 foot bank of processors.

                              I just tested it, no FPS loss and it actually makes the game slightly darker. I like it, all the white objects are no longer blinding it gives the game a more realistic feel that not everything is so bright and cheerful.
