    HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE
    kStor2poche'S Technicolor reborn thread

    Hello, kStor2poche's technicolor reborn is a graphic enhancer for BeamNG.drive based on the reshade post processing injector. It tries to mimic a three strip technicolor effect used back in the 50's to render colors wich involves a
    retro purple-ish (/!\ now avaible in a tintless version for a lighter experience /!\) look !

    Before going into subparts, I recommend you to look @cessni 's and @Car_Killer 's graphics enhancers if you don't like mine (go to additional infos subpart)
    and recommend you to use @cessni 's texture mods in combination with my preset (go to downloads and use conditions subpart)

    For me, it is way to dark and purpilish, you should probaly make the effect less powerful, If I can say so.

    Yeah but looking at pics and trying it in game for at least two days isn't the same thing... It took me 2 to 3 hours to get used to it but if you feel again that it's to dark, augment gamma in the game options. It will also lower the effect a little bit...
    If it's still too powerfull and/or too dark for you, I will make a little guide for how to make it good for you in the faq.
    And, btw, most of the pics were taken in the morning or at (idk if "at" is the right word) sunset... If you want a reference, the upper left and upper mid screenshots were taken with the default beamng time.

    IMO the vanilla game looks better. Everything looks extremely pink/purple. Perhaps your monitor's color settings are off?

    -_- please read the thread before repliying, it is mentionned that the preset is purple-ish and you have screenshots... BTW colors of my monitor are not off and on my note 4's amoled display, wich has outstanding color reproduction, it looks even better for me but, like most things in life it all comes to personnal preference...

    ps : you btw maybe donloaded the 1st version wich is even more tinted than v2...

    I know what you're going for, IMO it's just too purple. I'm just trying to give constructive criticism, you don't need to get defensive over it...
    Besides, other people feel the same way. Now of course we can't make you change anything (especially if you really do see the tint as ok), but these are just suggestions.

    Ok, first, all the posts befor our discuss is about v1 of the perset and second, here, telling me to remove a purple tint from a preset meant to be purple-ish is like saying to McDonald to remove the fish from their filet-o-fish... I mean, if you don't like it don't use it, that's all...

    If you don't want the ugly purple tint, go to the k2ptr.zip file and open up SweetFX.CFG, then find this line

    ////---------------//
    ///**TECHNICOLOR**///
    //---------------////
    #define USE_TECHNICOLOR 1 //[Shared] //-TECHNICOLOR : Attempts to mimic the look of an old movie using the Technicolor three-strip color process (Techicolor Process 4) 1

    //>TECHNICOLOR settings<\\
    #define TechniAmount 0.50 //[0.00:1.00] //-
    #define TechniPower 4.30 //[0.00:8.00] //-
    #define redNegativeAmount 0.75 //[0.00:1.00] //-
    #define greenNegativeAmount 1.00 //[0.00:1.00] //-
    #define blueNegativeAmount 0.50 //[0.00:1.00] //-

    Change the highlighted section from 1 to 0.

    Makes the shader look fresh :cool:

    Thanks !

    Yup, I could add another download for those who wants it without the tint but be aware this makes the shader a lot more saturated...

    EDIT : looks much authentic and better when using 1.00 for red green and blue negative amounts and I think it's this one I'll add as a variant and will adjust the first post later
