Is it correct that all tracers are invisible when using Thermals? I'm not seeing any of them, not even a blip.

Yup they don't work on thermals i did mess about trying to get them to work, but i gave up on them. Maybe someone can fix em, im done with em, they are free to be modded by whoever.

I made a fight with a crapload of AA and jets and the result is freaking star wars! I love it :yay:

also noticed that all the tracers are shown in comparison to vanilla :D

I DL this mod, HDR on standard, but it does nothing but turn all tracers white-ish/slightly yellow. It does not look like the picture. What am I missing?

Keep 'em coming. You're one of the best. We thank you for sticking it out considering you're moving on to the CryEngine very shortly.

Strange, this happens for me with the 6.5 tracer rounds. They turn into white-ish ultra-thin lasers. The rest is top notch stuff. Great work.

These look awful for me. It's aliased all to hell and as a result looks like pixely fairy dust or something. Looks nothing like it does in your image.

I managed to get it looking decent (although quite dull, it lacked any real illumination even in the heart of night) on one round, the coaxial on the NATO APC. Everything else continues to look like a line of pixels, glittering across the screen. Or it's just BIS standard tracers.

I think I have the same issue as you do. Maybe I installed it incorrectly or something... I did it the same as Blastcore-R3 but like you mentioned, my tracers don't looks so hot either. I've tried adjusting the HDR and Particle settings but it hasn't helped much.

I've tried everything, including ever bit of AA I can throw at the game. It doesn't help. Tempted to see if I can just run with driver forced super AA and fix it just to see if it's a good mod or not :p

UPDATE: Nope. Forcing through drivers worked for the game, but even through SSAA, MSAA, and FXAA the problem somehow persists. It's like it's impossible to apply anti-aliasing to those things. BIS tracers receive the AA pass just fine.

Does this make tracers illuminate the ground at night? I've been waiting for that..

What's your guys' opinion about the vanilla tracers? Obviously Blastcore is an absolute must have and makes a tremendous difference to nearly every type of explosion and particle effect in the game--I can't play without it. But what about the vanilla tracers does this mod improve?

I have tested it on dev build and want to give some feedback :

The colors of tracers seems broken, the only red I seen is when I used NATO 6.5 clip, the rest is all green.

As OS said he won't touch it anymore, I have unpack the pbo and change everything to red in the .cpp = that don't work

I have turn every .paa to red = it won't work at all...

That is strange, but I am no modder : I can tweak but I can't explain :(
