  • [Skin] HS Linear Rendering Experiment v3.1 (update 17/07/24)

    To simplify the install process. In this new version, the latest Graphic Patch (v17.07) from 4K diffuse pack, HS image based lighting (3.0) and lighting rendering asistant (1.0) are included.

    The game adds a strong S curve at the end of the process, and uses textures with diminished contrast and saturation, which not only makes texture artifact more visible, but also interferes with the linear rendering workflow. PBR shader is designed to create photo-realistic rendering but it only works in linear space, when it's not working in the linear space, we'll see either too strong reflection or too strong shadow just what HS looks like. What I'm trying to do is fix both the texture and curve so that PBR shader can work in the linear space, the results are promising.

    gamma rendering workflow
    gamma space texture --> rendering in gamma space --> gamma corrected image

    linear rendering workflow
    gamma space texture --- gamma to linear conversion --> linear space texture --> rendering in linear space --> linear space image --- linear to gamma conversion --> gamma corrected image

    HS rendering workflow
    over corrected gamma texture --- gamma to linear conversion --> gamma space texture --> rendering in gamma space --> color correction curve --> linear space image --- linear to gamma conversion --> gamma corrected image

    • Limit
    Now it only works on female characters, everything else looks gray until their textures been fixed. So I recommend using this on a fresh install, or do a complete backup of your game, and only use it in Studio Neo, if you're using it in main game, press X to disable map. Fully colorable clothes or items can be fixed by readjusting the color.
    The Chara maker background can only set to solid color now, but you can load cubemaps in chara maker.
    • How to install
    1. Install 0630DLC from illusion.jp
    2. Install SBX2.5 uncensor
    3. (Optional) Install translation loader
    4. Extract all files copy into the game folder and overwrite
    5. Install IPA 3.3(drag & drop HoneySelect_xx.exe StudioNEO_xx.exe onto IPA.exe)
    6. (Optional) Install wideslider (run HoneySelect_xx_WideSliderPatch.exe and StudioNEO_xx_WideSliderPatch.exe)
    7. (Optional) Grab cubemaps from https://mega.nz/#F!ofhTgbTQ!fAgjV1YlQ7wRy4vZ-LhZNQ
    • How to use
    Go to chara maker change your characters' skin and face type to the new types(one new body and 21 new faces), and take the LRE sample character as reference to adjust skins. If you have a huge number of characters, I recommend Ultra Char Editor v0.1 for party.
    F5 menu now works in Hscene, StudioNeo and Chara maker.

    Upgrade from v2?
    There's not much change to the character, but post effect has greatly changed, the old config files are not compatible, backup the old UserData\GraphicSetting folder just in case you want to roll back.

        I notice this three lines are missing from the latest version of LRE:
        ReflectionCubemapMipmapBias, ReflectionIntensity, and ReflectionBounces??? Why the change? Are these not necessary anymore?

        I just tried installing LRE and the result is this!

        Is there something wrong?

        P/s : All other skin types are like this! How can I bring back like before?

          To get a realistic looking skin choose the EX skin at the bottom of the list and adjust according to taste. Remember this mod is aiming for photo realism whereas the original game (and most skin mods) are cartoon style and saturated- it uses a different lighting model so other mods and original content will need adjusting- it can be tricky to get what you want but it's worth it.

          same issue. Once I restart the computer, the whole becomes super dark, including the characters

          You also need to pick one of the new EX-skins in Facial Settings -> Facial Type -> Skin.

      • #38
        does anyone know why this may have rendered my studioNEO non functional? it loads infinitely at about 75% now in addition to the dark preset

            That'd be the one
            also much thanks to the guy above me who gave advice, installing the files LRE was dependent on did fix my install of NEO. Installing the newest version of LRE beyond that fixed the issue of darkness, to others experiencing this problem.

            It's nice when others help me cover for my own foolishness

          The color so dark seems to be a raw 3D, without interpreting and applying gamma correction. Then a mathematically correct rendering. By applying the preset and as I said before, the only application of the gamma correction, you should get a realistic rendering. However when I tried (disabling fog and vignette) I noticed a annoying general blush that makes it a bit too synthetic and plastic.
          I would like to ask how it takes off that blush or how it works on the radius, it seems to me that the radius of the illumination is too wide, but maybe I'm wrong.

          Is it possible to have a full package of Linear rendering experiments, including everything you need and updated? If not possible, at least the direct links to the single package to download in order?

          So getting the mega links is free no? ù.ù

                  Thanks plasticmind . Still getting black screen on launch with 0630 update andLRE 2.2 full version. The timestamp of a number of files, e.g. globalgamemanagers in HoneySelect_64_Data from LRE are from 20170428 whereas it's 20170622 for the 0630 update.
