No Vietnam Filter

Client Side - This means that only your game is affected by the changes of this mod.


“No Vietnam Filter” is not only a mod that gets rid of the vietnam-movie like post processing effects, but also improves the general lighting in a more realistic way. While this vietnam-movie look is somehow fitting, I personally don’t like it, so I decided to change the post processing effects to a more realistic look and ended up with a complete lighting overhaul. I still call the mod “No Vietnam Filter”, because at its core it does only that: get rid of the vietnam-movie look.
Since pictures are saying more than thousands words I will stop writing unnecessary stuff now, simply enjoy!

No ENB, ReShade, SweetFX etc. used, so no FPS loss!

This mod modifies & affects only the Vietnam maps!

All screenshots were created with the highest graphics settings & bloom disabled.


  • No Vietnam Post Processing Effects
  • Realistic Lighting Overhaul

Which means:

  • No washed out look
  • Reduced bloom
  • Brighter shadows
  • Better fitting LOD colors*
  • Better feeling for depth of a map

*except for the map “Operation Hastings” which has weird lighting even unmodified.

Please consider supporting me by reporting bugs, giving feedback, making suggestions or endorsing this mod on Nexus Mods if you like it.


  • Enhanced Draw Distance by me - Enhances the draw distance & LOD settings of the base game & Vietnam add-on. Up to 16x higher draw distance!
  • Vehicle HUD Overhaul by me - changes a few graphical aspects of the vehicle HUDs. No scanlines, no grain/noise, less drastic color grading & more.
  • No Bad Filter by me - Overhauls the post processing & lighting effects of the base game maps to achieve a more realistic & natural look.

Since BFBC2 Mod Loader modifies two game files directly, there is always the risk of a BAN! I use client-side modifications (cosmetic stuff only) on official servers (Punkbuster protected) as well as on Nexus Emulator/Project Rome servers for a long time without any problems. Even the official servers are modded as hell, so I don’t expect a ban in the future. I am still NOT responsible for any BAN you get, so use this mod on your OWN RISK!
