DYNAMIC SHADERS
for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl


Shader mod by Meltac, (C) 2011, 2012


This small mod adds dynamic depth of field (DOF) as well as zoom DOF and adaptive nightvision scopes in r2 render mode (dynamic lighting). It is built onto STALKER Shaders MAX 1.05 by Kingo64.

Previously known as "Dynamic Depth of Field Shaders". Old download thread:
https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=21053&sec_id=17

This mod is compatible with 98% of other mods and is highly recommended.

Main Features:

Near Field DOF: Unlike in the original shaders from Sky4Ace, not only objects far away but also those to which you are very close will be blurred (when you don't focus them).

Full Dynamic DOF ( "auto-focus" ): The depth effect depends on your target distance, meaning that objects which are further away or much closer than those you are focusing will be blurred - the way your digital camera does it in auto-focus mode. This effect is well-known from Stalker CoP and other newer games.

Zoom DOF: When zooming in weapon aim mode (with or without scope), the regions further away from the screen center will be continuously blurred, like in other games (e.g. Far Cry 2). This effect was requested long ago by the community but so far nobody had found a way to realize it because it can't be done by shaders only but needs some scripting.

Alternative blur algorithms: In addition to the classic method by Sky4Ace, a simple gaussian blur algorithm is provided to incorporate the intended depth effect. Users may choose which one to have the work done (using a console setting).

Heavy configurable: All the above effects may be deactivated or adjusted to your favor (check shaders/r2/ShaderSettings.txt).


Features and improvements of Version 1.1:

- improved depth of field algorithm with more configuration settings
- support for all 41 levels of the extended Kostya's STALKER Map Pack
- support for mods with zoom-less weapons (for DOF in aim mode)
- support for modified FOV (Field Of View), like with FOV-Switcher tools
- improved/fixed motion blur behavior
- better balanced configuration presets
- adaptive nightvision scopes with additional scope zoom

Patch 1 for 1.1 Beta ready for download - Highly recommended!

The first official patch is now available.

Fixed issues:

1. Blurry overall image (everything looks over-bloomy)
2. CTD / Fatal error "...attempt to index local 'add_data'"
3. Nighvision effect in zoom mode does not cover entire scope sight
4. Blurry or flickery image when zooming with iron sight (without scope)
5. Scope overlay is displayed when zooming with attached grenade launcher
6. Scope effects (NV, zoom) are displayed when zooming with GL
7. Attachable scopes (pso/susat) possibly have incorrect texture overlays

Patch 2 for 1.1 Beta (non-cumulative version)

Hi folks, here's the announced second patch for the 1.1 Beta:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/dynamic-shaders/downloads

It's not cumulative, so please install Patch 1 prior to applying this one.

This small patch fixes the following issue: Scope texture is displayed on weapons with attachable scope (pso/susat) when zooming with iron sights.

Important note:
Although mentioned several times before; Few people reported repeatedly that the zoom DOF still doesn't work in some cases, or the entire screen becomes blurry when aiming with some weapons. This is not a bug, but happens in one of the following cases:

The mod hasn't been installed or merged correctly/completely
-- or --
The affected weapon doesn't have any zoom in aim mode.

There are two alternative ways to fix this:

1. (Recommended fix):
decrease scope_zoom_factor in the config file (.ltx) of the affected weapon(s), e.g. use a value of 40.

2. (Alternative workaround, but not perfect):
Open file shader_control.script and change the value of the variable "alternative_zoom_recognition" from false to true. Depending on the other mod(s) being run along with Dynamic Shaders, the values of the variables "alternative_zoom_accuracy" and/or "alternative_zoom_fov" need to be modified as well (requires some testing).

Note that the latter way, switching on and off the zoom DOF will have some delay when entering / leaving aim mode.

Please also consider the notes on my moddb page if you experience any issues with the mod.

EDIT:

Dynamic Shaders 1.2 Beta - First Hotfix

Please download this file:

and copy it into the gamedata/shaders/r2 folder, replacing the existing file there.
This should fix an issue with having way too much bloom / blur over the entire screen.
