Earlier in the month we learned that DICE officially disapproved of a mod which removed the colour grading from Battlefield 3, and warned about the possibility of bans. Now it seems the community’s confusion over that position has resulted in a vague capitulation from the developer, who will be adding a console command in the next PC patch to disable the colour grading in the game.
“There will be a console command for disabling the color grading entirely in the game included with the next PC game client update,” writes Mikael Kalms, senior programmer at DICE, on the Mordor HQ forums. “We believe that turning it off gives no major competitive advantage/disadvantage. IRNV scope and a few others which turn the image into greyscale or greenscale don’t work properly without color grading and will look real ugly.”
“There will be no in-game UI for turning it on/off. We are unlikely to handle support questions and bug reports regarding stuff that happens when color grading is disabled.”
