Yeah that should be easy. I'll try a few different ways to see which is fastest.

As insane as it sounds, adding an if statement to the shader sped up the lighten blend mode. The reason I kept seperate .fp files is because the opposite is supposed to happen! I noticed another inefficiency as well, so in all that was a pretty good suggestion 8-)

Right. I don't know how that thought came into my mind, now that I thought about it. Disregard.

I'm really enjoying the progress on this. I tried cranking everything to max and leaving strength at default on version 1.03, and I think I finally achieved the effect I wanted. Very subtle motion blur on really fast turns. Kinda like motion blur in Source Engine.

Samples at max? That's awesome, I can barely play above 10! :cry: :lol:

I was surprised that I didn't see any noticeable performance impact too. But it's definitely overkill.
I think the max value could be lowered, because past 50 it's really hard to notice any difference.

It appears that my vision in-game instead is just a black screen. Once I enter in a new game, that always happens.

Here's a screenshot, edited so that's it doesn't take up so much space:

Interesting... any other mods loaded?

I assumed it was the case, and launched it without any other mods, but nope, it appears there is something odd going on.

Post your video card/graphics hardware specs. You can see it at the beginning of the console.

This mod is pretty cool to use.
I already put this mod into autoload.

I did a little research on the model and it sounds like it's prone to overheat with modern gaming. Does the glitch go away when you toggle the effect off?

You can try this higher performance version in case it helps:
MBlur1.03b.pk3

It scales the samples back for slow mouse movements because the effect is harder to see then anyway. Increasing the samples slider might actually be needed in order to see it again but don't go overboard in case it is overheating.

Yup, it goes away when it's off. However, another glitch with the new version is that normal mode makes everything look white. Unlike the black screen glitch, it doesn't intrude the status bar or the player weapon sprite, it just simply leaves the rest of my vision white, like as if the map is only a white void.

Hey Pixel Eater, normally I dislike motion blur in 1st person shooters but with the right settings, it actually works pretty well. I think you did a decent job here implementing it and the settings for it. By default its just a tad too much, but my personal settings are Samples - 5, Strength - 40 or 48, Recovery - on the default 64, and Blend - Lighten. I'd recommend these settings to anyone using this. Thanks Pixel Eater!

Thanks for keeping me up to date Remaker. Unfortunately it really seems like it's due to a bigger issue than the shader itself- it's defined as 'beforebloom' which means it can only affect what's behind the player sprite. If the glitch is happening in front of the status bar it's either hardware or something happening within GZDoom itself. That said, try this one and see if anything improves:
MBlur1.03x.pk3
I've marked it "x" as it's a regression because it gets the screen height within the shader itself rather than from zscript.
