A SweetFX preset designed to enhance the textures and the overall graphics of X:R without overdoing it. Tested in all star systems to provide the best results in both dark and bright sectors.

NEW VERSION 2.1 64bit!
VERSION 2.0 Optimized for the new shader!



Features:
- Much better texture appearance and feel
- Sharp graphics
- HDR-like glow
- Movie like look
- Low FPS impact (2-5 fps)

Info:
Special attention has been given to the low resolution textures of the game to make them appear as much higher quality as possible. Also alot of effort put into balancing the brightness in order to provide the illusion of HDR without making the image too dark. Lastly some desaturation and movie-like coloring was added to give a more realistic look. I hope you find it as pleasing to the eye as I do!
