caliginous vivification

Shader used: SweetFX 1.5
Preset description:
Salutations fellow gamers; before getting into the information of this preset, it was made with the game's brightness configured to 85 ticks from the left. It is required if you want the preset to look exactly like it does in the pictures below. With that said, I would encourage users to experiment with this value, some might want a brighter atmosphere, or even a darker one, to each their own, 85 is a good starting point or medium to gauge if one wants it lower or higher. This preset 'caliginous vivification' gives the game Dead or Alive 5 Last Round a more dark mood but not entirely. To explain, if a stage is sunny, it does not suddenly change into a cloudy day, the preset brings out more shadows, making them more prominent, but the overall stage is still cast in radiant light, more colorful too. The inverse can be said about night stages, stages with low light sources (Such as caves.) or stages that loose light with activation (Circus stage.); they feel more like dark spaces, more sulky, and the light sources are more stark to say the least, akin to how shadows are more striking in the day. Regarding textures, with characters this preset brings out much concealed color and complexity of skin tones, and attire; gold shines more, dirt seems to have more weight to it when on characters, hair has more texture, singular hair strains pop out more, eyes have a more reflective characteristic too. With clothes textures now grab the optics, folds in pants now have shadows, clothes such as large pants visually have more density. The same can be said with stage/background textures, they are now vivid; which include floorboards, grass, paintings, tigers, audience, ice, fire, this preset makes them less invisible or looked over. The particle effects from either water, snow, Alpha 152, mist etc. are much more keen to the naked eye, depth of field too in some capacities. That said, people who are familiar with this game know that some of the stage textures in this game are atrocious to say the least. This preset will not solve the low resolution of them. The thing is in a fighting game the parameters of space one is confined in is much smaller, meaning if a stage does not have transition, both participants will be fixated to that area for a good period, it is not like an open world title where most unflattering textures can be hidden through out the vast landscape, in a fighting game the quality either good or bad is instantly perceived at the start of a match. Team Ninja usually does better, their previous titles are no where near this bad; hopefully a kind Samaritan from the nexus site who mods for either the Elder Scrolls series or Fallout series, could lend a much helping hand. I know that is wishful thinking, but those type of mods are needed, I am not saying character mods are not nifty because they are, but stage textures impact the game more with atmosphere and immersion. The game has been out for over a year, well over a year if one counts when earlier incarnations were released on PS3 and 360. It should not be on the game community to fix a game, Team Ninja should do it themselves; regardless the platform the game should be at a constant equilibrium with content; including net-code, patches, stage dlc, etc. Team Ninja for whatever rationality or scapegoat, to them pc is not equal to PS4 or XB1; it unfortunately keeps up the history and recent history of fighting games on pc, in that one should lower their expectations, once lowered lower them again, as to not get sorely out hustled and eviscerated by ones own enthusiasm or faux promises in the brief form of truth from game developers; looking at you Team Ninja, but even more than them looking at you Ed Boon and NetherRealm studios; but I digress. Hopefully you like the preset, if not that is fine too, free will is a wonderful thing; do what you will with your will. Take care, farewell, and peace out. One more thing if one is interested in some of the mods in the pictures below they can be found here: http://w11.zetaboards.com/SFxT_Mods/topic/11106570/1/ http://w11.zetaboards.com/SFxT_Mods/topic/11590308/1/ http://www.freestepdodge.com/threads/costume-mods.6327/ http://www.freestepdodge.com/threads/pc-community-mod-resources.5565/ Note that with the above sites, a great degree of the mods are the same, however there are some mods that differ between the two of them.

I wish I would have commented on the real reason behind so many uploads with this preset. It was not because of Dead or Alive 5, it could have been any game at the time, just by happenstance this was the game; the reason was the lack of feedback from earlier presets. Sure there were downloads but I was not sure if users enjoyed them or not; what about the preset they liked or did not, whether negative or positive would have been fine, it beats working in the dark, not knowing if one's work is truly achieving anything. I figured uploading an abnormal amount of pictures would get a response and it did; still to this day this preset has the most comments. The only other preset commented on without provocation was "vivacious justness" for Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition. The last user who commented liked the preset but only could get it to work with an earlier version of reshade that was compatible with SweetFX 2.0. In regard to this feedback, I plan to make another preset with the newest version of reshade; it is not out of the realm of possibility other users could have had a similar experience. I'm not one for adulation, sincerely and selflessly to others who enjoy a common game that I do, I hope the preset enhances their experience in some fashion. Feedback every now and then to see if that is the case would not hurt. I digress.

Oh. My. Stars. And. Garters.

Here's some sage advice: Less is more.
I get that you like to do things in excess, but you really gotta try to edit yourself, man. It's like when making a portfolio, just present a dozen of your best pieces, keep it short and sweet. The plethora of info you give is beyond overwhelming, and probably serves to drive away more ppl than it does attract.

To each their own, though. I'm just trying to save you some effort. It must have taken a few days to upload that many screenshots. :O

Proudi, you make an excellent point. I did think about that when uploading overall; even the latest preset I did the number of images are the lowest I have done thus far. I'll condense the images of this preset immensely when I have the time. Thanks for the heads up.

well ... it looks nice but rlly 800+ screenshots are to much ... hmmm consider that you can use the site for free ... u upload pics to a server u dont need to pay for ... so in my opinion it's
inappropriate(800 pics could be ~80 presets with 10pics...)... if u want to show it why dont use a vid comparison and post the link in the preset description :)

FierySwordwoman, that is your personal scope and that is fine, I differ in opinion but I am not going to haul hostility. I respectfully have a different view. Everyone is not the same, think the same, if that was the case the world would be less interesting, less innovative. I did not do this for self adulation, if you look at the number of screen-shots with my other presets they are no where near as high, this is more than likely a one time thing because of the mods. I cannot personally make you believe the reason for the volume of images, that is fine. I seek no one's validation. I am my own man, you are your own woman. I would not dare project my own personal beliefs about your life's decisions and say that my perception of your actions superseded your own first hand experience. I know of MxO or MxR now, not everyone in the world desires to be in the spotlight, or upload videos, he does, which is his absolute right, but not I; different styles for different folks based on many criteria in one's life experience. You feel a certain way and so do I, they just happen to differ, that is expected, the thing I absolutely refuse is to be verbally violent about it. I never assume anyone of humankind is an idiot or not capable of intellectual, emotional, or spiritual aptitude or prowess. I try to hold myself to this more than anyone else among other things, "If one knows everything, one can no longer learn anything."

Hot damn, looks like you set a new record in the number of attached screenshots

"if users want to see the preset in multiple scenarios"
"I like things in a more comprehensive manner"

You say that, but you show each stage at slightly different angles like 12 times. At what point do you consider something redundant?

I agree in being comprehensive/complete. In fact, I've considered going back and uploading 1 or 2 more screens for some of my presets.
There's a point where something stops being comprehensive and starts being oversaturated, though. In my opinion, you've easily crossed that line. As someone who's never seen this game before, even I'd know that if I seen even one of the comparisons for the grassy sky stage, I wouldn't need any more related to that to make a judgement.

People aren't *complete* idiots; if you show them a small handful of good comparisons, they can figure out exactly what your preset does all on their own.
Really, you just need to show a handful of comparisons that flaunt unique colors and show the most difference in comparison. Based on what you've uploaded, If I were you I'd have just picked 1 good comparison from:

The grassy stage
The sakura tree stage
The dusty desert stage
The back-ally-of-a-big-city stage
The dark metal stuff stage

"I am posting more than usual to show off the hard work modders did"

I doubt the SweetFX site is the way to do this. I've never even heard of this game before.
You'd have the best luck showing mods on whatever counts as the game's official forum.
Also mod spotlights are a thing. See "MXR Mods" as an example of how popular they can be.

Touche', I suppose. Users do not have to look at every image, but they are there if
users want to see the preset in multiple scenarios; different characters, stages,
stage items, stage effects etc.

To my knowledge there is not a prerequisite of the number of images that can be posted to a singular game. I am posting more than usual to show off the hard work modders did on this game; most of the time the work of modders go un-praised or thanked in the proper fashion. This is sort of a nod of admiration of their unselfish work, they do all of it without compensation, the least I could do is some promotion to maybe get users interested in trying out their mods/work for themselves if they play this game.

Everyone has a different way of
conceptualizing things, to some a few images is satisfactory, more power to them. I on the other hand, like to things in a more comprehensive manner, for example I recently wrote a 10 page correspondence to a family member.

I am comfortable in my own skin, even if others possibly are not? Thank you for your concern; if it is not breaking any rules, or hurting anyone, I shall continue.

I don't even know what game this is, but friendly advice:

-There [i]can[/i] be too much of something.

Can be too large

And what is currently over 400 comparison screenshots (over 800 individual images) can be just a tad too many, don't you think?
