Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

-edit new website: http://enbdev.com/index_en.html

I just got Burnout Paradise and found the built in SSAO feature for PC ground my system to a halt but I thought the vanilla game looked "too clean". You know, that look of 3D games were it's just the pure polys and textures and it feels like it could use more shadowing, some depth of field, some motion blur, some bloom, manual adjustment of pixel lighting, brightness, darkness, add occulion, improve reflections, specular, etc. Basically sort of the look of Half-Life 2 where it's too plain and sharp and textures are obvious, etc.

I discovered this amazing thing called ENBseries by Boris Vorontsov where you just put a d3d9.dll into the folder where any game executable is and his custom ini file and you can add all these features yourself and customize to an amazing degree!

Here's his page showing some screenshots on Burnout Paradise
http://enbdev.com/gallery_en.htm

What really amazed me is that I was wondering if I could use this in other games. I just got H.A.W.X. and I thought it looked a bit plain to me, it could definitely use some motion blur and some more bloom (not too much though! I needed to edit the ini myself to modify some values) to make it really feel like I'm zooming around in a jet at 10,000 feet.

So just copied over the d3d9.dll, the ini files, the effect.txt and voila! It worked! The difference is immediately noticable as it also affects the menus, etc. which ended up with a glowing effect.

What's great is that by using this, you can even use hotkeys to turn features like bloom on and off or even the built in FPS counter. (shift-*). He has many ENB series setup for many games already but you can just add them to any game yourself by putting one of the filesets into the directory where you game executable is.

Here's my H.A.W.X. before and after with some tweaking of the effects in the ini file.


Here are the amazing amount of things you can modify yourself:

I'm frankly shocked that this has worked with any D3D9 game I've tried so far. It has made many older games more cinematic and newer ones look better than stock (often the look is optimized for consoles as we are getting so many ports these days). The performance hit is the best part - there is hardly any for using ENBseries!

I think I used this for GTA San Andreas once, didn't realize it would work with all games.


Tested to work by me

GTA Vice City DX8 one works with Warcraft III.

Burnout Paradise files work with Mass Effect aswell.

Burnout Paradise files work with Grid.

Burnout Paradise files work with Fallout 3, bloom was probably too high.

Burnout Paradise files work with Steam-version of Bioshock.

Burnout Paradise files work with The Last Remnant needed it if you ask me, great game tho.

Doesn't work
Dead Space
Prince of Persia
Warhammer AOR
Dawn of War II

just edit the ebseries.ini file that comes with any of the custom ones he has made under the downloads tab on his website.

Nice find. I'm going to throw this on a few of my older games that have been revamped with D3D9 renderers. First stop: Morrowind+MGE.

Oh sorry, I forgot to edit that I figured it out. And that list of games was tested by me.

tuaarita

I don't agree that your "after" HAWX shot looks better, like some of the Crysis custom configs it just looks too contrasty, especially on the ground. The lifted dark tones of the original game aren't a mistake, they're the result of gamma-correct lighting.
Burnout could definitely do with faster ssao, although it sounded like the ENB guy had given up on it, then again I've read about some people successfully using it.

Litfod

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

The effects are overdone, the fake SSAO causes lots of visual glitches because it can't really access the games' z-buffer, the bloom makes everything look radioactive...

There's also the fact that this uses the same method as SoftTH to extend the game (modified dll file), which means you can't use both at the same time. Given the choice, I would pick SoftTH over this every time (triple-monitor is worth far more than hyper-bloom and screwy shading).

Unknown-One

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

I guess, its lucky for me I don't have 3 monitors. But those pics of RE4 looks pretty awesome. I hope Bloodlines look just as good.

pothb

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

Geez people, just adjust the settings yourself.

I hate the hyperbloom too. I cut it down by 75% of what Boris sets in addition to most of the effects. I'm just doing you guys a favor by letting know there's a tool out there that can add user customizable visual effects, enhancments, and tweaks to any game.

If you are too lazy to play around yourself, no need to complain about what others might enjoy.

Those Burnout: Paradise pics look incredible. They look like a movie.

I've used this before with San Andreas, but the performance hit was pretty huge and there were a lot of artifacts. Pretty amazing how they gave the flat, single-shade water in SA reflection, though.

Einhanderkiller

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

I just put this in GTA3, had to take off Occlusion since it had a MAJOR hit on the FPS, even on a 9800GTX Motion blur didn't have FPS hit but I just didn't like it.

[EFFECT]
EnableBloom=1
EnableOcclusion=0
EnableReflection=1
EnableMotionBlur=0
EnableWater=1
EnableShadow=1
DepthBias=1
EnableDepthOfField=1

Also, this UseEffect=1 toggles the ENBseries on so you don't have to shift+F12 every time.

tuaarita

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

Funny this pops up on the forums just after I stumbled over it for Deus Ex after looking at the status of the hd textures mod. The improvements to the lighting really makes a great difference.

Was the clipping clothing in melee combat ever addressed? It really bothered me on my only run through the game. I'd give it another go if that was fixed.

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

When I get it reinstalled I'll get back to you on that. I havne't touched the game for like 2 years probably.

EDIT: Okay, I don't have a clue if what you were asking is fixed. But probably not. That aside, I have no idea how to work this thing so its gonna be a while til I get a good setting, if ever.

Man, could you upload your enbseries.ini, effect.txt and d3d9.dll? Cause i have hawx and i downloaded enb few months, without seeing this topic, anyway, it worked almost perfect, and it wasn't perfect because i couldn't activate Motion Blur!? i tried everything, google it a lot of times, and i found this topic, i registred on the forum just to ask you this xD, can you upload these files or help me to make motion blur work??? Please help me T-T

MajorBrno

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

I don't have this game installed anymore and haven't played it for a long time. Not every effect will work with every game as the shader files that Boris creates are tailored to specific games they are made for but often, they will work to some degree with other games.

His website URL has changed:
http://enbdev.com/index_en.html

I am pretty sure but am not certain that I used ENBseries v0.075a for Burnout Paradise on HAWX as I discovered ENBseries when I was playing BOP and I just copied it over to HAWX without changing anything. These are the settings that I have in my Burnout Paradise folder. Unfortunately I don't have HAWX anymore to try it. I should rebuy it on my steam account one day as it was a good arcade flight sim even though some people thought it was underwhelming. The PC platform really needs more flight/space sims.

d3d9.dll should ever really change, should be the same version as on his website.

If these settings don't work for you, I don't know how to program shaders or work with Boris's configuration files really aside from messing about with ENBseries in GTAIV but I could never get it to work with the new version since Boris dropped support. I would suggest that you contact Boris Vorontsov directly for help in making an ENBseries for HAWX. He might not object since it already works pretty much as it is. Boris should be working for a big name game developer already. His work is better than most of the junk many games put out there in stock configuration. Like he said when he complained about Rockstar changing all the shaders in the new GTA IV patch, they should have hired/consulted him LOL.

Man thanks for answering me so fast O_O, xD, man i almost cry while loading the game :P, but unfortunately it didn't work ?_? , why, why motion blur??? why the one of the most realistic effects enb could give me did not work??? why T-T?

You forgot the part where you label it a DirectX 9 vs DirectX 10 (or 11 these days?) comparison and make it look like you'll get exclusive features if you buy the new OS. Here, I fixed it for you :





Amazing.

Looks pretty good. Wonder if it'll work with the old Call of Duty games I'm currently working my way through. Although if it does work for Bloodlines I'll def have to give that game another go. Need to give my Malkavian another crack :P

interesting. I have been using the dx10 setup for ut99. I might try this as well and see if can get the Dues Ex one to work. I like a small amount of motion blur like the default amount in TF2. I thought HL2 had these option available already. Or was that just after lost coast?

Make any DX9 game better add Bloom SSAO shadowing motion blur DOF manually

You guys need to play it to see the difference. I hate those effects in games too. I hate HDR and motion blur in games like Dirt and the bloomfest of many games. ENBSeries is different though.

The difference between the vanilla game and ENB GTA IV is insane and his effects make things more clear and realistic looking instead of muddy and overly contrasted like many developers do. Boris knows what he's doing.

Doing what I'm doing and applying it to other games that aren't specifically tested by him is up to the discretion of the player. You can activate what features you want and many won't work anyway.

Hey, i think i found the problem!!! i read your post about the Richard Burns Rally and downloaded the enb for it, and there's something i forgot to tell you about my enb. A week ago, i was testing enb's and i discovered that the only d3d9.dll that worked with HAWX was the burnout one, the others make the game look like a White with black points screen when enb is enabled and a black with color points screen with enb disabled, but only the 3D thins, the 2D like menus are ok. So i tried the Richard Burns Rally enb, same thing, white with black points, but i loaded the game, and tadam!!!!! MOTION BLUR! the screen was all white and all, but i could see cleary a motion blur when i hit the acceleration key. So i think it could be the d3d9.dll, because i deleted the RBR dll and used the same settings with the burnout dll, game was all right, but no motion blur. Help me :P

Yeah I've never been a fan of overcooked HDR, motion blur and SSAO. As soon as I got NFS Shift I turned off the motion blur and bloom and thought it looked way better with them off.

I'm sorry, I can't tell you which one I used for certain, it was more than a year ago, I tried a lot of files and settings on various games and they may have gotten mixed up. Maybe the Richard Burns Rally one as that one has motion blur for sure? There are also a few betas that he had on his old site and aren't published anymore.

I haven't tried yet, if only for lack of time and the possible problem that I have it through Steam. I'll try to hack it tonight and see what happens.
