Black & White: Last Light (SinCityStyle)

Preset for Metro Last Light
Created by r3dfield

Shader used: SweetFX 1.4
Preset description:
"Sin City" / "Limbo" inspired and based of my "Complete Metro Overhaul" settings, this preset provides a different Metro experience...with it's own charme and atmosphere! ------------------------------------------- This preset is great (and mainly designed) for taking screenshots and making wallpapers. Some areas look really awesome. If you need one for actual gameplay, just use my "Complete Metro Overhaul" preset. ------------------------------------------- HD Gameplay: ------------ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olH3NlCr9-I&hd=1

/*-----------------------------------------------------------. / Choose effects / '-----------------------------------------------------------*/ #define USE_SMAA_ANTIALIASING 1 //[0 or 1] SMAA Anti-aliasing : Smoothens jagged lines using the SMAA technique. #define USE_CARTOON 1 //[0 or 1] Cartoon : "Toon"s the image. (Interferes with SMAA, CRT, Bloom, HDR and Lumasharpen) #define USE_HDR 1 //[0 or 1] HDR : Not actual HDR - It just tries to mimic an HDR look (relatively high performance cost) #define USE_LUMASHARPEN 1 //[0 or 1] LumaSharpen : Also sharpens the antialiased edges which makes them less smooth - I'm working on fixing that. #define USE_MONOCHROME 1 //[0 or 1] Monochrome : Monochrome makes the colors disappear. #define USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN 1 //[0 or 1] Lift Gamma Gain : Adjust brightness and color of shadows, midtones and highlights (avoids clipping) #define USE_CURVES 1 //[0 or 1] Curves : Contrast adjustments using S-curves. #define USE_SEPIA 1 //[0 or 1] Sepia : Sepia tones the image. #define USE_DITHER 1 //[0 or 1] Dither : Applies dithering to simulate more colors than your monitor can display.

That's what I wrote in my description above ;) This one is more artbased. Of course you can play with it...but wasn't designed for it. I already did one for actual gameplay.

maybe, but in my opinion not for gaming :)

cuz it looks cool in many areas and it's great for making screenshots and wallpapers.
