About this mod

This can be a ReShade Preset meant to deliver a extra stylistic look to Darkish Souls Remastered. I discovered DS:R to be visually uninteresting, lacking the stylistic bloom and distant DOF results of the PTDE, and likewise felt it added a little bit of unneeded heat to the colour palette. I did my greatest to reinforce the environment with out fully altering the texture.

Tweaked for five (default) in-game brightness

Be certain that to take a look at the included screenshots and movies for a good suggestion of the preset’s look.  Any kind of pixellation is a results of compression, there aren’t any movie grain or chromatic abberation-type results included on this preset.

I included a model with no added bloom or ambient gentle, in case you might be against that impact.

Of my presets, the Lite model is round 50% extra demanding than the bottom recreation, the Very Lite model is round 30% extra demanding. Count on the Full model to be upwards of 3x as demanding as the bottom recreation, so solely advisable for very sturdy fashionable GPUs (970 1080p, 1070 1440p, 1080 TI 4k). 

At 4k utilizing the Full model, MXAO render scale ought to be set to 0.500 within the ReShade overlay, because the efficiency hit is exponentially increased than different resolutions (as much as 25%), however makes little seen distinction at 4k previous 0.500.

Methods to set up:

Downloading the ReShade program itself is not obligatory.

1. Obtain my assortment of tweaked and customized shaders for Darkish Souls Remastered from the obtain part.

2. Unzip your model of alternative into your Darkish Souls Remastered set up folder (the folder with DarkSoulsRemastered.exe) and select to switch all if obligatory.

3. When ingame, undergo the ReShade tutorial utilizing the shift f2 overlay. Choose the preset from the dropdown menu most acceptable on your {hardware}. The display screen will look bizarre for a second, wait and it’ll appropriate itself.  You may toggle results for comparability utilizing Scroll Lock.

Please contemplate endorsing for those who loved the preset.

Data & Toggle Keys:

Scroll Lock – Toggle ReShade
Delete – Toggle MXAO
Insert – Toggle Depth of Area

The preset was tweaked utilizing default brightness, with ingame AA set to TAA, AO set to on, and DOF set to on.

If sure results do not look proper, strive launching Darkish Souls Remastered in offline mode. Some video games do not enable entry to the depth buffer when taking part in on-line.

If textual content seems blurry in sure conditions, the trigger is depth of area. you possibly can toggle the impact with Insert, or you possibly can simply intention the digicam on the floor when utilizing the menu if the issue happens.  Alternatively, for those who do not look after DOF generally, you possibly can simply disable it.

Solely downside I’ve seen is that MXAO (Full model solely) bleeds barely by means of fog, the impact might be toggled with Delete if it bothers you.

To those that expertise crashing issues or white display screen with ReShade (do not do that in any other case), strive renaming dxgi.dll and dxgi.ini to d3d11.dll and d3d11.ini within the principle recreation folder.  If that does not work, strive disabling Steam Overlay.

Results used:

Pirate Bloom (Very Lite solely)
Ambient Mild
SMAA (Full solely)
AdaptiveSharpen (Full solely)
MXAO + Oblique Lighting (Full solely)
Pirate Mild Adaptation
Pirate Depth of Area (static)
Lumasharpen (Lite solely)

Pirate GI and SSAO are included within the preset solely as a result of they’re a part of the identical impact as DOF and deleting them would trigger it to cease working.  Turning these on will solely eat FPS for no seen distinction, so simply ignore them.
