A mod/add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X that adds a night vision effect to your virtual flights. It's the classic green/black night vision effect.

Screenshot showing night vision in FSX.This add-on has been hard to get hold of due to the original author's website being taken offline so we are releasing it here for our users.


This mod requires you to overwrite any existing FSX ENBSeries mod you may already have installed (chances are you don't).

Steps to install

  1. Copy d3d9.dll, enbpalette.bmp, and enbseries.ini into your main FSX install folder.

Installation of the "tube" night vision panel into your aircraft (optional)

Contained in this file are the FSX Night Vision mod and the "panel" for simulated night vision tube.

  1. The files in simobjects/yourairplane/panel are to show the structure, the readme.cfg contains the information to add to your panel.cfg.
  2. Make sure your window.xx is in numerical order, I.E. 1-2-3-4-5-6

Enable Night Vision

  1. Press SHIFT+F12 to turn on the night vision mode.

Edit the enbseries.cfg file with Notepad, if you feel the bloom is too high, I turned it way down.

Developer: Crazieman.

Works great in FS2004 too!

It works on Steam only if you flying with 2 screens, one of the screens get de NV, is there a solution?

Hi, it does work in FSX Steam but my question is; would it be possible to decide in the .cfg or somewhere else, which screen or view this effect works in? I would like to use it in one camera view only.

Thanks in advance, G.

It does work in FSX: Steam Edition!

Put d3d9.dll, enbpalette.bmp, and enbseries.ini into your main FSX folder.

Is the hotkey for this effect reprogrammable via the control settings menu, or is it hardwired to Shift+F12?

I'd like to be able to reassign it (in my case, to Shift+N)!
