-Installation-
1. Download the latest version of ReShade Framework http://reshade.me/
2. Extract the ReShade Framework to your Witcher 3 game directory ... \ The Witcher 3 \ bin \ x64
3. Then rename ReShade64.dll to d3d11.dll
4. Download and Unzip the latest version of ~Fantasy~ to replace the default ReShade Framework configuration files (The .cfg configuration files in the ReShade folder) ----> \The Witcher 3 \ bin \ x64 \ ReShade
That's all.

Also note that ReShade 1.1.0 isn't compatible with Fantasy versions below 3.4.
