Nvidia Ambient Occlusion
So when I go into the Nvidia Control Panel and enable Ambient Occlusion for Half life 2, it works and looks good until something appears on the HUD. For example, when I scroll through my weapons the ambient occlusion disappears for no reason. Or when I turn on my Aux Power, it disappears.

HL2 is a single player game and does not use VAC (the feature "Valve Anti-Cheat enabled" is not listed here).

Ah, well that clears the whole VAC worry. Thank you. I suppose I'll try using ENBSeries AO later.

Alright, so I couldn't get ENB to work. Still, might anyone else have this problem with the Nvidia Control Panel AO or am I the only one? Does anyone have any ideas as to why this problem occurs?

Problem still occurs. Can anyone help?

Wait, are you having problems with ambient occlusion or VAC? You shouldn't rewrite your original post, that it loses some of the questions, so other people with the same problem will be able to find it more easilly.
Anyways, as for the ambient occlusion, I enabled it for Garry's Mod (a HL2 mod) once, and experienced major graphical bugs. AO just doesn't work well with Source, well at least not the Nvidia one. Is the ENB good, by the way? I was looking onto Cinematic Mod but it was a too major overhaul (and well, investing 40 gigs into such a useless thing?). Does it also work for episodes?

Having problems with AO. Before I edited the post, I asked if ENB would activate VAC, but because I couldn't get ENB to work, I changed it to only ask about why the AO wasn't working properly.

I couldn't get ENB to work for HL2 (probably installed it incorrectly), but I've seen ENB on Skyrim and it looks pretty great. I also saw a bit of ENB footage for HL2 on Youtube, and it also looked pretty good, though not a drastic overhaul.

The graphics mod I'm looking forward to for HL2 is Half Life 2: Update.
