Gameplay video

ATTENTION: This mod in its current form is more a proof-of-concept, although you can use it for regular playthroughs if you can tolerate some of the bugs.

This mod is compatible with:
- Widescreen Fix
- HD Reflections
- HUD Resizer
- Shader materials pack

======== BUGS/ISSUES/TODO ========
  • Make this not proof-of-concept (probably never going to happen)
  • Fix occasional fog issue (probably never going to happen because funny depth buffers)
  • Fix occasional minimap issue
  • Make dynamic fog color switch

======== CHANGELOG ========

==== VERSION 0.2 ====
  • Orange fog was adjusted to be more correct to beta
  • Everything ReShade related was moved to "scripts" folder
  • Added ASI Loader

==== VERSION 0.1 ====
  • Currently done in a very messy way using NFS UG1 Redux shaders: teal/green, blue/purple, orange & white fog color presets.
  • Replaced every sky texture to a night one.

This mod is interesting, I always wanted a mod that would bring back that graphic look like the ps2 version of NFSUG2, I always thought that EA Black Box took more care in the graphic look, materials and lighting in the ps2 version of nfsu2 because in other versions like the pc ones for example seem to have made certain things worse.
