**********************************

PLEASE SELECT ONE OF THE DEFAULT PP EFFECTS AND WEATHER AVAILABLE IN AC.

DO NOT USE THIRD PARTY PP EFFECTS AND WEATHER WITH 1.4

**********************************

With the imminent release of AC version 1.4 (and Dream Pack 3) we are introducing some great improvements in the reflections, FXAA antialias, exposure and general image quality.

Unfortunately though, this means we had to break compatibility with old ppEffects.ini files. This means if you have added third party ppEffects.ini's you will have exposure problems or other issues.

We know this might cause a bit of frustration but as you will find out by yourself, it is worth it, as it is a great improvement and will also enable modders to achieve even better photorealistic ppeffects in the near future.

Cheers.
