Can shade replace Enb?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

I love the bloom effect and the darker nights that ENBSERIES brings, but at the same time I am getting some black screens with it. I heard about the small program "shade" and wondered if it can replace the bloom effect from enbseries.

another thing is the darker nights what can replace that?

any other injector like sweetfx for instance add to much color, make it terribly unrealistic.

any suggestion?

 

cheerio.

Never did get to grips with ENB but I do use Shade. In the beginning I 'woohoo'ed with the best of them but I'm damned if I can remember what FSX looked like before. What I'm trying to say is, what I see is normal, the ground looks normal, the clouds....you get my drift?

I must disable Shade and see if FSX is as awful as it's made out to be. Maybe it has a lot to do with the scenery you fly over.

They do different things. Shade doesn't give you bloom effects and stuff like that. It enhances the shading from terrain. Like for example the shadow behind a mountain will be darker and more realistic looking. I highly recommend it.

It definitely has enhanced my experiences in and around mountains (especially now that I have MSE V2 States installed).  It is not as good as ENB though as ENB is a hack of a DirectX dll just like in SweetFX.  There are so many configurations you can do to Shade to enhance your immersion in FSX AND it does not crash FSX.  The cost of the product is exceptional and almost free.

 

Best regards,

Jim

Yes, that is the downside of this tool.

It has an effect on ALL shadows, so also the ones in the VC. That's why I stopped using the add-on completely. I had to lower the settings so much in order to not having a too dark VC that I hardly noticed the effect in FSX itself anymore. If someone will ever find a trick to only change the groundshadows, I will use it again. ;)

Do I have to enable ground shadows on fsx settings on order to see it? or will it work without it?

No, I see I should have used another word. ;) You do not have to enable the (utterly worthless and crappy) object ground shadows. Shade works with the er... shadow system of FSX that's ALWAYS on and which you can't turn off. So the shadows you see on mountains etc. but also the 'shadows' you see in the VC (not being real shadows like you have in DX10 mode but the lightingsystem that makes the VC darker or lighter depending on your position). 

 

I have the feeling I could have said this all in one short sentence... ;)
