I made some changes. Having gotten tired of only being able to use mods like VisualV, NVR when they are uptodate (otherwise bugs, etc), I wanted to customise my game via a more update friendly "portable" way, i.e. ENB for car damage, fixes, lens removal and better MSAA combined with ReShade for simple colour adjustments (thats all i really want tbh, and I understand ReShade better and find it friendlier than ENB)
ENB made a huge fix to the overbright cars (im dumb, i just realise now its cause i managed to disable ingame bloom with it). I have literally everything disabled in ENB (except car damage, MSAA fixes, game fixes & chromatic abberation removal enabled) and ReShade fully disabled right now, but it still fixes it (and only it i.e. it doesnt mess up anything else). Also seems to fix sky being blindingly bright.

Whole game looks way sharper now. Shimmering jaggies literally magically removed themselves for a 5-10fps hit (i was already at 90+ already in all times and weathers), distant stuff isn't blurry, and the lens effects being removed means i can see stuff clearly finally.
The only issue is, the adaptation getting stuck (too bright day / too dark night) still happens, even with adaptation enabled in ENB: https://imgur.com/a/8ngzrr4
Any specific settigns i need to tweak in ENB for that? Also, i made another discovery, going into firstperson then out fixes it. So its 100% some weird game bug. Really odd that I experience this on fully stock and a63nt-5m1th doesnt.
So the last issue is just that adaption getting stuck, then i need to extend those lod distances where stuff pops in right infront of my car, then im happy
Oh and, even tho i have all effects disabled in enb it still messes with
trees, any idea what to do about that? am i missing a setting https://imgur.com/a/A7rAmRV
as a general noob question, how can i tweak the enb effects? changing stuff in the inis and menus has no effect, yet still, it fixes the bloom issue by itself and changes vegetation. disabling/enabling aa or bloom settings doesnt do anything, where do i find the actual settings to control
also this issue - with enb installed alone, whether or not global effect is on/off, the grass shimmers. its only grass and small vegetation but it flickers a lot. AO is off. any ideas? you need to look closely. https://streamable.com/eu6jv8 might be a dll issue
