Crank that setting up. It looks like crap in windows, but try FB out.

Right-click on a blank spot on your desktop and choose "properties". Click "Settings" and then click "Advanced". Click on the tab with your video cards name, select "Color Correction" and you'll see the "Digital Vibrance" slider. Turn it up!

I don't think it will effect screenshots, otherwise i'd post some. In-game, its looks DAMNED GOOD.

Enjoy.

Yes Baldie, it is good. I wasn't gonna post on this because I assumed every NV owner already knew. If you see what is happening, I think all its doing is readjusting the standard adjustments for the "vibrance" effect. Its nice along side the "Ace" effect. I doubt ATI's color will be any better. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, it's a great feature for Nvidia cards, but it's basically to compensate for the shortage of vibrance in FB/IL2.

I don't have an Nvidia anymore (and I'm quite pleased), but FB looks blander than ever now....

I tried this when I first got my GeForce 3 a few years back. It made Il2 and Morrowind so much more colorful. Definitely something I miss.

I didn't like it

on any of my nvidia cards-if you use a color calibrator it looks real-dv looks like a cartoon.

Not so sure. The washed out FB colours look real to me.

It´s good if you got a plain old CRT monitor. If you got a Trinitron (especially if it´s got an aperture grill) the colours get too saturated to be enjoyable with it on even at low...

Play with the color settings oeqvist. If you use a small white area, and you have no color-blidness, adjust the colors individually untill your white area has no hue (no pink, no aqua, or no greenish tint). You can also use a black area to adjust brightness so that black = black (not grey).

Once you have everything set up, FB will look amazing. So amazing, that people who have never seen it comment on how realistic it looks (my room mates grandmother thought I was watching a WWII movie when she saw it).

You can also adjust the sharpness of the screen, but be carefull with this setting. You can get A LOT of detail to show up, so much that the screen develops depth similar to 3d glasses, although not as pronounced (no kidding). The problem is, you'll see some image ghosting.

The best way to set your game up is to go with 640x480@32 (use OpenGL) and use Windowed mode. Pause the game, then use ALT+TAB or CTRL+ESC to get to desktop. You want to monkey around untill you can get your window in a place where you can see the changes while you make the adjustments. Like i said, be carefull with it, and try to adjust your colors so that red and green have depth.

The depth effect will mess with your head at first!!!

Rogo: you are funny. Aren't you the same guy who posts saturated screenshots? Digital Vibrance just allows NVidia owners to get that saturated effect in REAL TIME as apposed to using PS to do one shot.

I'll try this at home. First I'vee thought that the slider is not doing anything.And I'm quite color blind,I can distinguish very well colors but not nuances of the same color,for me they all look the same.But,I will try it.

I don´t think you understood me.

The difference between CRT monitors and Trinitron monitors especially with Aperture grill is that Trinitron monitors is way better with colours. So it´s quite counterproductive to enable digital vibrance and then set up the monitors colors to be less vibrant...

I remember when I had my old Hansol 900P 19" CRT monitor. The colours of my ti-4600 was way better with digital vibrance enabled.

Then I got my 21" Sony Trinitron aperture grill monitor. Run 3D Mark 2001se and was amazed that I got a 3000 point increase with some new dets. I usually benchmark 3dmark 2001 se with antialiasing and anisotropic since that´s the way I play my games and I run 3dmark mostly for stability.

Of course antialiasing and anisotropic wasn´t applied but the increased colours and image quality of my new monitor fooled me to be dead certain that it was enabled. Never thought that monitors could do such a huge difference. I bought it because of the bigger viewing size and the higher refresh rates it supported since I used my edimensional quite a lot with IL 2 and FS 2002 back then.

Sadly they are almost useless now when I got an 9700 PRO http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif.

And the 900P monitor is no slouch either. Have won several awards and it´s sharpness is great.

Now I got my 9700 PRO so running digital vibrance on my monitor would look extremely cartoonish and unrealistic that I am certain of. Even if the Radeons don´t support digital vibrance. However ti-4600 with digital vibrance on and 9700 PRO isn´t a fair fight anyway...

As for CRT digital vibrance is a must for nvidia video cards. LCD:s and Trinitron it´s of much lesser use really.

Aperture grills dont affect color. It improves sharpness by not allowing the electron beam to 'splatter' the pixel.

I repaired trinitrons for 4 years.

You can still get amazing visuals using Digital Vibrance, no matter what display you are using. It allows the end-user to manipulate the colors of the CRT to suit thier own eyes. With a bit of time/ patience, you can even produce mild stereoscopy.

Its awesome, and makes those pathetic red tracers look sooo much better. For the first time ever, I can know where 200 meters is because thats where i converge my weapons.

Digital Vibrance is the best cheat yet. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks you are absolutely right about Aperture grills. Learned something new today http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

This can help alot, I was using cranked color and brightness settings in FB and FS2004 for a while there. I haven't set it back up since I swapped drivers though. Overall I felt the horizon looked better, as well as the haze when color was bumped abit. Especially with the virtual cockpits in FS2004, which are very dark feeling at default settings.

BTW, you can adjust these settings very easily by taking a screen shot while in game, then loading that image into the quickviewer, and adjust the nVidia color panel while looking at the screenshot you took in the preview window in the background. I found that alot better than going back and forth between the game and nVidia panel to adjust.

Cool. Never really thought to do that before.

Now, if I can only get used to windows with the extra vibrance...

BTW, I have a trinitron screen and can only really handle less than half setting of vibrance but that's just me. It does look good in FB though!

I cant find that setting in my GF2MX200. Isn't that what monitor drivers are for?
