Woah, where did this voodoo come from and why did I just now notice it?

#1
Screwed around with an autobuild I got my hands on (haven't done this since before 0.5) and saw some strange things changed in it. Bloom is completely ditched from the options menu and out right replaced with HDR, that even more strangely DOESN'T KILL THE FRAME RATE (hell, it may even run better for me than bloom did in previous versions. Weird). If that wasn't interesting enough, there's a checkbox for frame buffer whatever the hell it's called thingy there. Tick it and it really makes the glow and HDR come alive. The description on the box looked familiar though, so I went snooping through the advanced options and found out where I first saw it at. r_viewfbo, bingo. Ticking the box for it sets it to 2 which is a 16 bit frame buffer (I really have no idea what I'm talking about right now lol), 1 is 8 bit which is lower quality and doesn't make the glow stand out like it does with 2, and 3 will kill your GPU but is sharp as hell. Pretty neat stuff, setting it's scale (r_viewscale) above 1 also makes the standard anti-aliasing method look REALLY bad in comparison as well.

In-game, no FBO (other effects settings visible in first pic)

In-game, r_viewfbo 2 (effects settings same as in first pic)

I'm saying that at some point bloom got completely replaced by HDR that has pretty much the same performance cost as bloom did and there's some really cool frame buffer stuff thrown into the effects setting screen that I never noticed before. Also, that's a nice list of achievements you have there... oh wait. lol

wtf that is HDR? looks like bloom.
that glow is way over the top for my taste.

The glow can be tweaked and my screen brightness was lower than default which makes the glow look even more ridiculous.

HDR and "bloom" use the same cvar now - r_bloom.

It simply is High Dynamic Range if the framebuffer supports it, but otherwise works the very same way.
