    *Update*
    V1.1 Released! ~ Now with Depth of Field! Download now! Remember to set your brightness afterwords!
    [HR][/HR]

    BSFGM is a visual modification (Based on EnbSeries) to Garry's mod aimed to give the user a more immersive and profound experience.

    I plan to add a whole list of features to BSFGM but as of now I do not have the list.
    [HR][/HR]

    What I am in need of is suggestions and feed-back on how this runs on your setup.

    Optimizations along with some bug fixes coming soon!


    New Features And Fixes
    --------------------------------
    -Depth of Field
    -Better Lighting

    Screens:
    Take in mind that you cant see all of the details unless you try the mod yourself.

    Start the game and enjoy!

    It's activated by default but you can toggle it by pressing Shift+F12

    Among other things. But yes. As i stated before, This is in early-beta.

    I plan to add a whole list of things along with fixing what it already has.

    I'm not 100% sure but I believe ENB series triggers VAC in source games...
    I've looked online and never found anyone that was VAC banned for using EnbSeries and here's a mod that uses it: CSS RC HD Effects

    Will there be an SVN for this so it is easier to update later?

    Making a SVN repository for such a small and easy to install mod wasn't exactly in the plans, though if more people show an interest in having an SVN for this mod, I would be more than happy to make one.

    Edited:

    I don't know if it works since I can't turn it off and on.
    It sounds like the d3d9.dll isn't being injected properly, It would be great if you could try BFSGM again when the update is released later today and tell me if it works for you or not.

    Thanks for your feedback! What kind of FPS do you get without the mod?

    It does, I fixed that in V1.1 though. I'm glad that you will be, The more people who like this the more progress I'll make.

    Grimdark ~~so real~~.
    Haha yeah, Maybe i shouldn't have released the mod so soon in such an early phase but i wanted to in hopes of giving you guys something else to look forward to.

    You certainly got me looking forward to it :) Unfortunately I'm on a laptop with integrated graphics, but from what I can tell ENBSeries has a lot of potential uses and it'd be great if something similar came for GMod. I'd like some confirmation on that this doesn't trigger VAC, however. From what I understand, VAC only looks for specific hacks that have been reported (and investigated?) so it doesn't sound likely that something like this would trigger it, but I'm not an expert and I don't know what the policy towards mods like these are.

    is this using the Deus Ex version of ENB or GTA 4?

    I might add a shader or 2 I picked up a nack for them when Skyrim came out looking like a dreary gray mass

    Are you taking request for making complete and very advanced custom shaders? As Carter Addon Pack (http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1162629) would be really interested in that.

    It wont trigger VAC in gmod at this moment.

    neither really
    it uses it's own version of d3d9.dll to apply post processing shaders over the game

    also, antistropic filtering is forced to 32x

    I'm having fun with this I never thought to do it, I'm using the skyrim version of ENB on GMod lol (well, attempting to anyways)


    dawww the skyrim version crashes when I join MP (but not SP) so I'll probably be VAC'd soon........
    that sucks. I feel like the read config button doesn't work on this one

    I'm glad that you are! I'm sorry to hear that you only have a laptop at the moment but if it can run Garry's mod I would be grateful if you could try the mod out and tell me how it run's since I'm also working on a version of this mod for lower end computers. Also your question about it being VAC Bannable please refer to post# 8 - 21 - And 22.

    Could be nice for ragdoll posings.
    That would be a good use for it. Really it's not Meant for one specific thing.

    Just use it where it's suited best.

    The Skyrim version. As far as i know that is. I'm still new to ENB. I actually heard about it the day I started work on this mod.... Which is the same day i posted this thread.... So yes I'm VERY new to ENB.

    Are you taking request for making complete and very advanced custom shaders? As Carter Addon Pack (http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1162629) would be really interested in that.
    I wouldn't mind. PM me with details, I would love to start as soon as possible.

    It wont trigger VAC in gmod at this moment.

    If you want to see some future in the project, you could post a "Do want" in here http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1162234
    I love to see progress in the matter of Shading and Graphics and whatnot but please.
    Do not advertise in this thread.

    --edit--
    also, in your enbseries.ini, turn on the BSOD fix, he's said in his blog that having it on should increase performance
    Remember that for all the features to work properly the map has to support HDR ex. gm_construct -

    Thanks for trying it out I'm glad to see some people taking an interest in this.

    Yeah, I agree. I'll work on that later tonight.

    Thanks for letting me in on that, It should... but that all depends on how the source engine renders things. It's turned on in V1.1 due to your suggestion though I haven't had time to test the FPS differences so that will be done later on when i make more optimizations.

    Pretty sure using a custom/modded dll is VAC bannable.
    Please refer to post# 8 - 21 - And 22.

    Sorry I haven't responded sooner, didn't see you had. And dumb me, didn't tell you what I had before (which was 30-50)

    It's perfectly fine. Ahh 30-50? I heard those were good cards, especially for the price. Yeah... Optimizations here we come!

    to be honest the only good thing in ENB series from memory is SSOA which would be quite usefull.
    It could be the only good thing, Depending on how you look at it.

    Haha it sounds like your having fun and your account should be fine. Just curious but does my version crash for you in MP?

    Also It sounds like you know what your doing, Or at-least for the most part.
    Would you by chance be interested in helping me with this project? Pretty please with a blunt on top?

    sure Ghostie,
    I could test and point things out to put you in the right direction, but I rarely get enough time to sit down and really play gmod these past few weeks due to college so I'm not sure how good I'd do as a Developer.

    Your version doesn't crash me in MP, I was trying the V. 106 for Skyrim that uses a dll injector. lol
    It's supposed to provide support for NVIDIA Optimus because it's drivers use an overlay that interferes with it or something.

    This however is definitely not the Skyrim version though, the Skyrim version is missing a lot of features, but I have grown to love it lol

    (also, was the read config button or cyclic reading working for you? I couldn't get it to work)

    some before and after pics of my playing with the effectsm removed the desaturation. It made the game look too grey
    toned down the # of passes it does (16 passes for bloom ahmygawd, reduced to 8)




    my next thought is to brighten it up a bit. it's a little TOO dark, even though I do appreciate the difference, it makes some maps a little scary and hard to play TTT on

    Ghostie, actually I see you are using some kind of custom engine. Wouldn't be it better to create just a shaders like we had them in gmod main folder? Without patching *.dll files? Also, with your way are you capable of creating vertex shader that could be applied to models and modified with vmt files?
