Looks like problems with effect shadows - do those artifacts disappear when setting "Effecs=0" in conf.ini?

Attempting to change the reticle brightness to lower values through the "Toggle Reticle Brighness" key produces a blue reticle instead of a very transparent one. Reticle at high brightness with il2ge:


Reticle at low brightness with il2ge:

Hmm, I can't find that key binding. In which section is it and does it require an extra mod?
Do you mean "Tinted Reticle Dimmer" ? - Edit - Nah that doesn't seem to be it.

No, it's stock 4.12, found near the bottom of the misc section.

This is my next approach to this mod. It's the same every time - the game doesn't start. I met all the requirements from the readme file. My computer is: GeForce GTX 660 Ti - driver for it 344.75 (I know - very old, but works well with IL-2), Intel E8400 processor, Windows 7 64 bit, il2ge-installer downloaded today. I'm good with mods, but here I have no idea what the problem is. I paste the contents of il2ge_full.log and I will be grateful for your help.

OK, the problem is that your driver doesn't support the method glReadnPixels, which is part of OpenGL 4.5.
Installing a newer driver might fix that.
I should probably mention in the requirements that il2ge requires OpenGL 4+.

Thank you so much for help. How do I install the new driver - will I know if it helped.
I don't like changing something that works well. As you can see - it stopped.

Fixed in https://gitlab.com/vrresto/il2ge/-/jobs/422904786/artifacts/raw/il2ge-installer.exe?inline=false.

There is a side effect though, which is wrongly lit objects in some cockpits, for example of the La-7:



Only noticable with the setting Atmosphere=Precomputed.

I'm using the alpha blending mode as a hint to determine whether a rendered object is self illuminating, which fails in the above case.
More precisely: If the opengl blending mode is set to GL_SRC_ALPHA,GL_ONE - I think this corresponds to the option blendAdd in the material definition files.

My graphics card supports OpenGL 4.2. Enough for your mod?
