I play on pretty low settings as I started out on a very low power pc and got used to the way it looks.

What did you do?

About week ago I found an advanced post-processing injector. I've started modifying UT2004 using various post-processing effects available in this tool. All the effects after they have been set up, show up on screen in real time, so you can see all the changes, you've made. You can turn on/off all the effects anytime by pressing button on a keyboard.

Yep

Release soon
Tutorial too
 In current state it looks good with most ut2k4 maps (including ctf-face-classic),
Ons-torlan needs another preset but it's almost done.

Here we go :)



Download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m7y1c02fb9p9e2c/UT2004GraphicsMod.rar?dl=0
If this site shows up in my native language press "Pobierz" in the upper right corner, then "Pobierz bezpośrednio"

If you have a problem with running UT after copying files to the "System" folder, try to install Microsoft Visual C ++ Redistributable 2015 32bit version (UT 2004 is 32bit app), this should solve the problem
You can download it here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=52685

Please, let me know if it works ;)
You have 4 presets to choose from.

To delete the mod, simply remove all copied files as well as reshade.ini and d3d9.log

Sure. You can use it with any gametype, even when displaying the main menu.

The only disadvantage of using mod is performance impact, 2 presets have been made for quite good machines (I don't mean a modern high-end computer. A few years old computer with a pretty good processor and gpu should run smoothly with this presets), the other 2 presets only change the saturation of colours and texture sharpness, which has a minor impact on the performance.
