Is this compatible with current version of KSP? Yes! It is compatible with all versions of 32-bit KSP!

 

BlueHarvest ENB Series +GEM-FX is a shader sweet for DX9 games, in this case KSP. This version contains the GEM-FX core for a brilliant new shader package, on top of SweetFX, and ENB Series. Pushing the limits of post processing on KSP as we know it. Lucifer Hawk has done some amazing work and shown me some great new ways of implementing shaders, and getting the best desired results. With that in mind, remember, ENB, in general, is more of a artistic approach. Something to the Eye-of-the-Beholder. As in, what you may think is rubbish, the creator of the 'art' may in fact adore it. ;) So lets not gripe about "Oh I hate ENB" etc, etc.

Note: this modification is for screenshots and videos. Do not mention the GUI. This is inevitable with any ENB/SweetFX modification. Disable HUD with F2. This modification also rebalances lighting. Space will be dark you will need to equip lighting on your vessels.
