This was mentioned on the board a little while ago: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46654

It's alright, it definatly isn't true HDR though, just a basic bloom filter, and it doesn't really work all that well. I thought the bloom mod for Doom 3 worked better, since it didn't apply the effect EVERYWHERE on the screen. Still, it makes it look a little better than default, and it's an OK alternative while we wait for the Lost Coast/HDR addition to be made availible.

yea, didnt care for it, nice effort, but I didnt like how the light affects the whole screen rather than certain parts/items, just kinda looked like I messed with the brightness on my monitor and went from 58% to 72%
