Default Anti-epilepsy filter?

Luthier wrote on Sukhoi.ru forum at 19:38 GMT (sorry Google translated):

Quote:
In our game there is a wonderful new feature that saves you all from epilepsy. It is made at the request of the Western publishers, Yubisofta.

Since epilepsy is caused by a rapid flashing of the facilities, and flight simulator is basically a genre of fast flickering objects, the epilepsy caused all: propeller, shooting, explosions, sun, flying airplanes, transportation machines, entry into the hangar, flying at low level, and etc .

Despite the fact that in the old IL-2 it was more an epileptic, new requirements were introduced only last year. We perelopatli entire game because of this unfortunate epilepsy.

The main protivopripadochnaya shell, which is above everything that was done two weeks ago, the total despair. It compares each previous frame with each frame and compares the brightness of the pixel by pixel, and if it is too large, averaging pixels to give pleasing epileptic-limits. This crap brakes at the ground, and does not work with cards SLI. Off with her we can not yet make it optional, too, can not yet.

Without it Yubisoft refused to publish the game.

But as the 1C in general all the same, cause you have a game fits or not, we are urgently looking for a way to cut it all on the Russian version. It is necessary to assure Yubisoftu and give them a check that off in Russia will not allow Western epileptic somehow disable this thing at home.
This sounds realy incredible. Isn't the "Will induce epilepsy" enough? Hard to believe, since for instance cigarettes which we know KILL can be sold without problem.

Not really sure what he is saying.They have done something to the game to prevent epilepsy but it causes issues with the game?

Yes, as far as I understand there's a filter that prevents quick changes in brightness by smoothing the transitions to be more friendly to persons suffering from photosensitive epilepsy.

This filter was requested by Ubisoft, and cannot (must not) be switched off. It breaks SLI compatibility and lowers performance.

What boggles the mind (not in this case where Ubi is involved) is why it must not be optional. This just goes along with the well known phrase by A. Einstein:

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

... provided that the feature and above report is true.

EDIT: Can we have the link to the thread/post luthier made at Sukhoi.ru forum? Thnx.

What the hell?
We have to suffer from performance issues in order to not get sick of epilepsy?

It's lamentable. There's GOT to be a way for some talented individual to figure out how to disable this thing once we've had the game for a while.

This is like forcing me to ride my bike with training wheels on it because some people have inner ear infections.

That's basically right. I've got it but it's been very much under control for years now. I told my Neurologist how many hours I sit in front of this monitor playing IL-2 every day. He replied "You really are better"
