Skyrim Comparison: Adaptive HDR Makes The Game Look Like Real Life

"This is arguably the best mod for Skyrim. The mod totally changes the look of the game for the better, and it is quite surprising how fast the modders on the PC have managed to create it. This uses a new technique called Adaptive HDR that enhances the look of the game." (PC, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

i thought it was going to be a good article... then i saw "gamingbolt" on the upper right. immediately closed the tab, no thanks.

They have a good article sometimes...it's just very rare

"Like real life" is a bit of an overstatement, it ain't no icenhancer 1.3 or Crysis, but it's certainly damn nice looking!
The_Nameless_One  +   1035d ago
Sensationalist headline to get hits.
RankFTW  +   1035d ago
No way man, this looks better than real life, like real life 2.0!

Oh please. This is just silly.

Get used to seeing stuff like this. These drive a lot of heat/hits on N4G, yet they're nothing of value.

People love graphics, and sites love traffic. We still see GTAIV articles as top stories and that game released years ago. Skyrim is still new. You'll see this for at least a year. It's a shame as it's really not that interesting at all.

It's only of no interest to people who can't use it, to those who can, it's awesome news.
Tony P  +   1036d ago
Great mods are definitely worth the headlines.

But "uber" texture mods are practically a dime a dozen.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1035d ago
@Tony P Not even a texture mod. Shows how much you actually know about this.
Tony P  +   1035d ago
I wasn't talking about the mod in the article, Fox. I was responding to Sev.

The beauty of nested comments means you don't have to type "@(name here)" to reply.

No harm. Everyone makes mistakes.

But maybe next time you could be less of a dick and karma won't come back to bite you in the ass so quickly.

Been a pleasure.

Can we PLEASE ban GamingBolt from N4G?

Mods?

Hello?

Anyone?

SOPA?!?
specialguest  +   1036d ago
Looks enhanced, but I still think the Crysis Real Lifesis mod or Natural Mod looks better.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1036d ago
Of course, they were actually able to modify the game with those mods, Skyrim's mod toll don't come out until Jan, when they do you'll see much more complex mods.

looks like they reduced contrast and bumped up the colors.

You can simply adjust your TV/Monitor and get the same results...

If I'm honest the lighting does look better but at night and on indoor scenes I prefer the standard skyrim, much clearer and easier to see the environment. Overall though I really couldn't care what the game looked like as its damn good fun.

you can have HDR and brighter nights and caves.

If you are experiencing a too dark enviroment you can apply the "Legacy fix": find the file injFX_Settings.ini in your main skyrim folder and open it with notepad.
Find the line: #define Gamma 1.580 located under the TONEMAP tab and edit the value to 1.450

lesser values -> brighter game
higher values -> darker game

There now you can have HDR and brighter nights and caves.

This is not real life

Really? You sure?

Announcing mods isn't news.
sonicsidewinder  +   1035d ago
Terrible comparison images.
Incipio  +   1035d ago
How about some more shadowing on...hmmm...everything? I hate this engine.
christheredhead  +   1035d ago
Am I the only one who can't really tell the difference? hahaha, I have no idea what I'm looking at. They basically look the same to me.
cryptkiller  +   1035d ago
Here is a link to alot more comparisons http://420gamer.blogspot.co...
nilamo  +   1035d ago
Honestly I can't tell the difference from these pictures. Even if I did I doubt it would look like real life.
Give me any CLEAR picture comparison of CG vs real life and you will ALWAYS be able to tell the difference.
leemo19  +   1035d ago
I dl this mod last night though it was good looking and probably had some of the best shadowing and lighting, other mods like the 2k hd looks better.
ninjahunter  +   1035d ago
Probalby worth the download.
zero_cool  +   1035d ago
Skyrim has stylized visuals not a photo realistic visuals case closed!

Happy Holidays Gamers & Happy Gaming!
