  • [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.

      You can change CharaMakerReform to false in UserData\GraphicSetting\Config.xml. But your character will look different from the rest of the game, and HSIBL will pop up a warning to help you correct this every time you press F5 in the charamaker.

        The old style presets are deprecated, new presets are in ImageEffect folder.

        My only problem is F5 is the hotkey to "change eyes" on "Shortcuts Plugin - POV, Futa, Animations etc".

          press S to disable Shortcuts plugin and press f5 to manipulate lights, when the lights work is done, turn off HSIBL(F5) and re-press S to reactivate Shortcuts plugin :-)
          ---Repeat the procedure every time you want to access HSIBL and do not forget it---

          Sure to have a combination of keys free, Such as a hardkey on the Home button ( Now LRE is home.:-), would make the job easier. In fact every time, I, I have to press S to remember if I have disabled the shortcut plugin or not. Otherwise this becomes the payday with an entire cycle in the morphing of the mouth.

          Ok: Go to HoneySelect/UserData/ and edit modprefs.ini.... Change the key with one you prefer that is free:

          [Shortcuts]
          resetAllSettings=SHIFT+G
          handleNaturalFaceBehaviour=SHIFT+T
          IncreaseAnimationSpeed=KeypadPlus
          DecreaseAnimationSpeed=KeypadMinus
          ToggleCinemaMode=T
          ToggleUIVisibility=SHIFT+U
          HideMaleHead=6
          HideFemaleHead=SHIFT+6
          ChangeEyes=F5 -------------> **// I changed it with F3 //**
          ChangeEyesOpeness=F6
          ChangeMouth=F7
          ---cut---

          and save.

          Sorry but among a thousand things to do I had also escaped me that you could remap some keys via modprefs.ini ...better late than never!

          I hope so to solve, to me it works:-)

          No, don't need that any more. Just follow the new install process.

      • plasticmind

        I've decided to switch from the latest version of 4K Graphic Patch with 4K diffused textures, to the new LRE v3.1 and Etc..

        I am no longer very satisfied with the quality in Studio Neo with the 4K Graphic Patch, here's my 4K jpeg screen-test: https://i.imgbox.com/0dnQlilO.jpg


        But before proceeding ... I need all your Wisdom!

        Like me.. many users are reluctant to switch to RLE, one of the main reasons, in addition to the greater complexity of using new features like the Cubemaps, which would be very useful a detailed video guide on how to use them;

        the Main Reason is that all the miles of old cards made before LRE will have a strange skin tone, not to say ugly .. but I guess there are solutions to avoid rebuilding the skin with hundreds of cards ..!


        I hope to respond in a clear and exhaustive way to all my questions, in the interest of all:


        1) Can I use old 4K diffused textures with RLE v3.1 (IBL v3.3, CubeMaps, etc.), if this is what difference between 4Kdiffuse/EXtexture? and will there be a lot of quality difference in skin detail/realism? what are the Pros and Cons?


        2) This is the most important question if I keep the old 4K diffuse texture, how should I do it right so I do not have to re-male the skin tone of all my cards? And same question for the new EX textures, if I use these new EX textures, what should I do to avoid re-make the skin tone of my cards?


        3) I have the latest HS official update, and I applied the plasticmind's Graphic Patch 06/30 Fix, what should I do exactly to be ready to go on the new RLE v3.1 (this is my first time), and possibly go to the new EX textures If I can avoid re-creating the skin of my cards, Etc.. Do I have to uninstall the 4K Graphic Patch? Or else..?


        I hope you can answer all of my questions, to be able to have a Greater realism without compromising everything else,

        with your precious support I am sure it will soon be Real!

          I understand.. but the CharacterMaking editor is very slow in load and saving cards data,

          so.. if I wanted at least to retrieve fifty of my favorite cards , to speed up the creation of alternative cards versions of my favorite characters/cards with the only modified skin tones For LRE, what could I use? Is there any trick to save time, maybe there is a utility that could be useful to do this??

          Can you just tell me if I have to Uninstall the Graphic Patch, before proceeding with LRE?

          Would you be able to create your own LUT with GIMP, and are there guide/tutorial on how to create your own LUT or edited a pre-existing LUT profile?


          By chance you are already working on new LRE V4 beta?

          this Amazing scene is your..? https://i.imgbox.com/FN2qtgfJ.jpg

          Spoiler

          the acrobatics characters are Gorgeous, especially the one below, with impressive colors and high detail of the skin, where are the details of the muscle in tension..? new textures coming in?

          LRE vers. 4 looks Fantastic.. I hope you can have that Preset in the future!

          your screens is so clean, banding free, at the same time it looks real!

          the natural color saturation, Gamma and shadows are Amazing, and as if they were almost one with the background!

          I imagine that without Cubemaps can not get a similar result, right?

          I absolutely have to understand how they work..!


          You did something Magical!

          Now the game and studio shows consistent result, it’s just vanilla maps look really bad, you may want to hide them in the main game.

          In the HS party "standard" game, I only see vanilla maps in the selection menu -_-

          but.. in my"map" folder, I have 117 files!

          most of them all by Snooley (City, PPD, Various), because all these maps by Snooley do not see them in the selection menu of HS party game?

          Ps: Is there no way to add new Maps to the standard HS party game, that you see well with LRE..?

          Just follow the how to install part, 0630DLC will overwrite 4k diffuse, so it’s not necessary, but you should backup, there’s no uninstall pack for this mod

        • Hi, I'm trying to use this mod with VR, but I'm getting a memory leak that results in a crash a few seconds after running NEO in VR. I also tried the chara creator in the main game using LRE and the VR mod, but it also had the same crash. Is there a way to solve this? I've installed the newest versions of these mods.

            • plasticmind

              Is there a possibility to save the parameters to be able to load again once you close Studio Neo and you want to match the lighting produced at certain scenes? Or do I have to do everything again?

              es. (No camera 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) but only for general scenes that includes all the camera views.

              Load Scene (1) = HSBIL / load parameter preset 1
              another scene load (2) = HSBIL /load parameter preset 2
              Etc etc
              I hope I explained myself

              Thanks for the reply in advance

              • Hi, thank you for the amazing mods. I have a question about adjusting the cubemap. Is there a way to zoom in/out and rotate the cubemap, other than changing POV?

                Some maps like the bathroom is really zoomed in when I load it, and if I zoom it out using the POV trick, i is unrecognizable because of the fisheye effect.
