They just need to release the SDK and this game will get fixed! Shit, that one cat added DX10 support in like a day...
DX10 isn't really supported. Only the ini files were edited which is common to all UE3 games: http://forums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?t=79493

Do the ini file concerns only compability (like adding a graphic card working for the game) or can it makes actually more like re-work on the color grading system (I believe this is internal to UE3 but I couldn't find anything really useful on this ini file).

I'm not sure but I belive it only allows DX10 if supported by the exe which doesn't seem to be the case.

Okay, I'll try harder to see if I can find anything.
Thank you  ;)

Hi i found some unofficial fixes and tweaks for the pc version of the game. Not saving the day but helps the atmosphere a bit...the game got darker, colours, tones changed, its more sharpen, mimic of hdr etc.

PREVIEW:
(bug on the bottom of the prev its only appears to be my pc's fault)

Run the decrypter exe and browse the game's main folder, extract there.

Copy the txt file where the acm exe can be found to get the result u see on the previews above.

Inverse Effect

The game still looks grapicially bad,

Basically this just makes the shadows super shadow-ey and the lighting very vivid. It certainly looks more atmospheric but it's just a distraction.

Agreed. Now the game looks just as shit with brighter colours.

atmosphere feels better for me at least a bit...its not looks like a cartoonish dreamcast game...but somewhat a doom 3 like game ...yeahyeah its just it's look

Slaine

It's really sad how people have now resorted to trying to fix the game themselves.

We shouldn't have to. We paid money for a finished product.

Gearbox should really be embarrassed about this.

It seems people are going nuts trying to change this and that. while some things are tweakable and people can tweak shaders and whatnot, maybe even hooking into it (not sure how legal), half the things people have tried just dont do anything. Its for the most part psychosomatic.

I straight up DELETED the graphics card compatability files, lightmass files and everything else I could find and the game didnt even care that they were gone... it changed nothing. Not just the local copies, I deleted the default copies as well as the ones left in by the crew with comments intact.

what weve got is what weve got and if its not in the game/engine settings it prettymuch doesnt exist.

why bugs u if someone want it to be a bit more atmospheric? :D ...i wanted to have fun with my mates so i tried to make it at least acceptable for coop

Aceburster

 Oh no man, Im not tryin to give you a hard time, sweetFX works no doubt and I dont blame ya for doing what ya can. The problem is that it only does so much.

ve seen on lots of forums hoping that we will get the kind of atmosphere and lighting and AI fixes from a modder or a tweak. Its looking like Gearbox is gonna have to step up, or its going to take quite a while to get the job done within the community because its not so much about tweaking as it is writing code from scratch and injecting it into the game process. Lotsa issues there.

I'm releasing a small batch of tweaks soon myself. It's not much but it's something! I hope it inspires others to get started too.
