ME3 no dof reduce black crush variation is a mod for†Mass Effect 3, created by†thrive4.

Description (in authorís own words):

This mod reduces black crush in game and introduces many other tweaks

see description for more info

So these tweaks are based on disabling 'dof' in the 'GamerSettings.ini' this approach can be found in a number of other mods on this nexus. The twist in this case is a specific shadertweak with helix and some specific color balancing with sweetfx.

Take note disabling 'dof' also alters a number of other effects, bloom, screen fringing aka vignette, flares and it alters the colors quite a lot, this mod focuses specifically on the color alteration in an attempt to restore it to somewhat a somewhat more normalized palette.

Finally there are a number of specific tweaks to fog issues on the normandy and the object selector (doors, etc).

Helix tweaks contain:

- re-balance contrast and gamma dof is off

- remove object selector javick room deck engineering

- remove fog normandy javick room deck engineering

- remove object selector unfortunately also reduces bloom

Further a sweetfx tone map re-balances brightness, normalizes the color palette and a 'poor mans form of tessellation' gives the assets (objects, environment, etc) a bit of relief and more definition. Also added smaa so please disable AA in the game.

An optional GamerSettings.ini (use with caution)

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 3\BIOGame\Config


Special thanks for the excellent texture mod by creeperlava:

A Lot Of Textures (ALOT)

- install

First, this is really necessary, disable 'dof' in the GamerSettings.ini this can be found in the folder:

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 3\BIOGame\Config





Copy the contents of the zip file to the install folder of

mass effect 3, the folder which contains MassEffect3.exe.

'mass effect 3\Binaries\Win32\MassEffect3.exe'

With exception of the folder 'optional'.

This contains a copy of 'GamerSettings.ini' as example,

normally the file is located in:

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 3\BIOGame\Config
