Default Re: Post your final config for retail crysis here!

ooooo k. I figured it all out for the most part. He was putting too much emphasis on the shadows and over doing the HDR. It was too extremes fighting each other for the same space and it wasn't working. For the position of the sun, the shadows were just too strong and the darks were much too dark to be belivable and the HDR glow was absolutely overkill.

I took 4 sets of those screenshots in those 4 different locations and changed a little bit each time. Going back to my original screen shots, they look all washed out and faded looking. The darker shadows do a better more dramatic job at wowing me with the lighting and the HDR is much better and less distracting.
