Thanks for the speedy reply! I thought so... uuggghhhh. This is not terribly helpful as some elements look a little washed out still.Yes they have switched it off entirely
However, I did notice a massive improvement in the last update regarding shade balance in the rift, before it was completely outrageous necessitating file alteration. This was probably when the files were internally overridden by the game also.
I quite enjoyed getting the settings just so to my liking.
