ABOUT SAWESOME

SAWESOME is a graphic enhancement for GTA:San Andreas. It changes the look and feel of your game. There are two presets available to install: High-End and Low-End.

The Low-End Preset is tested on two rigs with these specs:
1GB Ram, Nvidia 9400GT 512MB
2GB Ram, Nvidia 9600GT 1GB
and works fine

And the High-End worked fine on a rig with these specs:
4GB Ram, Nvidia GTX 670 2GB

 

The Screenshot Preset isn't made in a way to be playable, and playing with screenshot preset is no, but it's nice if you're thirsty for making screenshots!

PooyanCyrus, yeah. This is not the wrong section, but you can change the title to "[WIP] SAwesome".

 

Btw, nice mod. But I think you should post at least 5 to 6 screenshot(reflection, water, shadow, lighting effect, blur, etc)

@HPro: So whose work are these screens? Your aunt's? This mod has a nice Anti-Alias but screens are a little rubbish because they're taken in low-res.

You are disrespectful like me in your mother's bed.

 

Listen kid, your SAWESOME is just sh*t and it does not change anything in the game.

If you can make the water to reflect the surround it (real time reflection), I'll follow this mod until it's release. :D

You maybe laugh when I said this, but the reflection did happen when the settings are correct. I've found it around GTAF threads long time ago and see some screenshots. Don't know is it still active thread or not. (it's been months I've waiting)

If found it! (I can't use BB codes properly) >> : http://gtaforums.com/topic/473159-gta-sa-water-reflections/page-8

Apparently that was the map turned upside down with the transparency that you get from ENB to make it look like reflections.. and it was only available for San Vice. So I wouldn't exactly call it real reflections especially considering how clear they are.

Check the page 7 of the link that I gave to you. There's a screenshot that shows an 'unfinished' reflection.

That still looks like the same method to me.

What you mean the 'same method'? Do you mean like puting another building upside down and give a clear water effect?

 

I'm really sure that we can make water reflection with ENB. :)

@in45do: it's not reflection. It's more like a "Confusion"! Lots of bug and no way to fix them :( It's exactly against what i want: I want it to run without bug.

It's the same method used for the San Vice one. Adding every single object under the map again would take way too long and the game would crash because of too many IPL's.

 

Rockstar used this method to create a water reflection once in Vice City.

Notice how the building appears and everything else doesn't. (lamppost, tree, etc..)

Yeah, but in 'unfinished' reflection, it is impossible to create the blue sky.

Because underneath the map is the same color as the sky.

Blue hell? No, absolutly no.

 

As you see, the setting of the water (ENB) creating a bug that stretching the real size of an object. Like the blue sky, it is stretched because the setting of the water (creating reflection) and unfortunately it's not a real time reflection.

ENB stretches the objects underneath the water and makes the water transparent and blurred to create a reflection type look.

 

Also, about blue hell. You're right. Not exactly sure what's creating the sky color, it could easily be the water color in the Timecyc though.

 

EDIT: Not sure why people call it blue hell.. it's basically grey.
