Portal graphic improvement.
I was bored today so I start to search in to the game files and I improved my graphics a lot with some settings on dxsupport. If you are interested, just ,read below:
1. Go into game directory and in the folder bin, open dxsupport
2. Before changing anything make a backup file
3. In the file you will see different versions of DirectX. Search for your directX version.
Note: The direct x version is showed in the line: name "DirectX version" where Direct X version is a number Ex: 85 which is Direct X version 8.5.
-You can`t find a Direct X version bigger than 9.8
-If you don`t know your Direct X version just click Start then Run and type dxdiag. You will see your Direct X version in the last line.
-If you have a higher direct x version than 9.8 just go in game options and select a lower version in video tab if you can (I don`t recommend to modify this file if you have a bigger version).
4 Paste this on your Direct X version under the line "NoUserClipPlanes" "0"

"ConVar.mat_antialias" "16"
"ConVar.r_fastzreject" "0"
"ConVar.mat_reducefillrate" "1"
"ConVar.mat_forceaniso" "1"

"ConVar.r_overlayfademax" "2000"
"ConVar.mat_colorcorrection" "1"
"ConVar.mat_motion_blur_enabled" "1"
"ConVar.r_flashlightdepthtexture" "1"

5. The dxsupport contain the name of all supported graphic card. There you must find your graphic card and change a variable.
Note: -If you don`t know your graphic card, just right click on your desktop and select proprieties , and then select settings tab and you will see your graphic card name or you can use the dxdiag method.
-To find more easier your graphic card in the dxsupport file ,click find and type your graphic card name Ex: ATI Radeon HD 9250 (is my graphic card).

6. Change the CVAR ""ConVar.mat_motion_blur_enabled" "0" TO "1"
7. Save your changes and run the game.

:) Do you tried this? I have got some improvements on font`s clarity, shapes and lighting and Texture quality. For example is the background with the cake (The chocolate chips was not visible before I change the file, Before i saw only a chocolate topping)

screenshots? (before and after...or at least after)
EnacheDangeorous 19 feb om 4:27vm 
yes for sure

I also discovered that if you have a 64-bit computer you can put the variable "ConVar.mat_antialias" to "64" (YES that means on 32-bit you can put max to "32'' )
