ReShade for IL2:GB

Post  MJDixon on Mon Mar 19, 2018 10:41 pm

I've found that the lighting in BoX is very washed out (especially noticable in the Kittyhawk and the Boston, which have light grey instrument panels, when they're actually supposed to be a lot darker as far as I can tell, plus the nights are never really dark - not that that's a bad thing when you're trying to fly in them Laughing ).

Anyway, there's a program called Reshade that a lot of people in BoX use, which you can use to edit the lighting/colour in games, and also add stuff like different anti-aliasing, or depth of field, etc - essentially lots of post-processing stuff that you can put on top of the game:


It's easy to install, just point it to IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\bin\game\il-2.exe and select the Direct3D 10+ option, you can then select which effects to install (I just pick them all, as you can test them in game and make profiles for them).

Then in game just press Shift + F2 to open up the ReShade options to fiddle with.

Here are some unedited comparison shots with my current setup:

Here are my presets if you want to try them, just put them in IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\bin\game and select them in the Shift + F2 screen.

The Longest Day Reshade

I had mine on last night on the Finnish Server, so they don't seem to cause any issue in Multiplayer.
