Realmware BF3 Colour Tweaker 1.2
This utility allows you to edit the Battlefield 3 game files by tweaking the colour and lighting settings for each map in the game. That is, for the base game maps, Back to Karkand, Close Quarters, and Armored Kill, you can adjust the following settings:
- Colour grading.
- Sunlight colour.
Some people were asking for this in the colour correction mod thread, so Insanecrimsontid and I put this together. Basically, it does the hex editing with the .sb (and now .cas) files for you. It also has the default values for everything built-in, so you should be able to easily return to the original settings if you wish.
It doesn't allow you to modify sun glare or anything like that, as we want to stay strictly out of cheat territory. This is also not a replacement for Frankelstner's BF3 File Tweaker, as it only allows you to change basic visual settings. It should be considered a complement to Frankelstner's tool, for you to enjoy the game in full colour; until he can add support for the expansions to his own tweaker utility, the only tool that supports them is this one.
Note that if you have additional .cas files (cas_50.cas, etc.) created by Frankelstner's tool, then those files can override the changes made by our own tool.
A screenshot of this program is included below. If you would like to see more, then check out the screenshots page on our website.
This tool only really has two system requirements.
Operating system: For the greatest user experience, you should be running either Windows Vista, or Windows 7. However, you can still use this with Windows XP, as long as you have at least Service Pack 2 installed.
.NET Framework: As this program is written for the .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile, you will need that installed. It's a small download, far smaller than the full .NET Framework 4.0. If you are using the setup exe (which is recommended), you don't have to worry about it; it'll all be taken care of for you. If you are using the zip archive, you can download the .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile here.
If you would like to download this program and try it out, then head over to the download page on our website. We recommend that you choose the setup exe option, but you can also download the program files as a zip archive if you prefer.
This tool includes an automatic update checker, so you will be notified within the program whenever a new update is available (unless you choose to disable this function). This means that you can stay up-to-date with the latest features and fixes.
Response from DICE:
A news post was posted on Battlelog in October warning that modifying game files for any reason is grounds for banning. However, that doesn't actually mean they'll do anything about it; they may or they may not. If they do, it'd probably come with the Aftermath patch.
DarkLord7854 from DICE said on Reddit a couple of days ago to "Look for an announcement when Aftermath drops".
Response from PBBans:
PBBans has publicly stated on their forums that they will not ban players for using BF3 Colour Tweaker:

GGC-Stream has publicly stated at least three times on their forums that they will not ban players for using BF3 Colour Tweaker (but they are banning for Frankelstner's BF3 File Tweaker):
