Trouble trying to create banding, and an IDE for shaders

I spent most of the day trying to get the anti-cheating shader to work.  I still don't have it working quite right, but it's getting closer.  The idea is to create worse and worse banding the darker something is, thus blurring any details.  I am able to create banding just fine, but making it vary depending on the brightness is proving to be a bit troublesome.

If you are looking for an IDE to write shaders in, I recommend RenderMonkey by AMD.  It supports both Direct3D and OpenGL shader languages, and shows you a preview of the shader you are writing.  Intellisense and syntax highlighting are also available.
