    Download the files:

    https://github.com/psychicEgg/EDHM

    Before starting:

    Remove any custimizations from %LocalAppData%\Frontier Developments\Elite Dangerous\Options\Graphics\
    Download the latest version, as of this review the add-on was at v1.32
    Unzip the files into %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Frontier_Developments\Products\elite-dangerous-64

     

    Now open your Game and go to the graphics settings

    • DISABLE GUI EFFECTS = OFF

     

    Once the mod is loaded, use the function F keys to change the options.

    • F1 to disable the Mod, revert to the default orange HUD (you can switch back and forth)
    • F2 to cycle through shield colours
    • F3 to cycle through OwnShip hologram colours
    • F4 to cycle through distributor colours
    • F5 to dim the HUD
    • F6 to dim the lighting
    • F7 to cycle through cabin lighting colours
    • F8 to cycle through targeting reticle options

     

    For FPS Drops, Recommended initial quality settings:

    • Shadow Quality OFF
    • Bloom OFF
    • Anti-Aliasing FXAA (off for 4K)
    • Supersampling 1.0
    • Ambient Occlusion LOW
    • FX Quality OFF
    • Material Quality MEDIUM
    • Volumetric Effects HIGH

     

    These settings will maximise your FPS. Shadows, Ambient Occlusion and Supersampling have a huge impact on FPS, so increase them slowly.

     

    Editing the Configuration

    • Edit %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Frontier_Developments\Products\elite-dangerous-64\d3dx.ini

     

     

    My Settings are:

    ; ** HUD Dimmer **
    w7 = 5
    
    ; ** Lighting Dimmer **
    w2 = 1
    
    ; ** Ambient Cabin Lights **
    ; 2 = Tie Fighter Red
    w4 = 2
    
    ; ** Targeting reticle **
    ; 3 = Purple / Blue / Green (good for combat)
    w5 = 3
    
    ; ** Shield colour **
    ; 5 = Yellow / Red
    w8 = 5
    
    ; ** OwnShip Hologram **
    ; 6 = Grey / White
    w9 = 6
    
    ; ** Distributor **
    ; 2 = Green-Yellow-Red
    w10 = 2
