Playing this game on a 60 hz monitor the game should be colorfull and probably no need for a color reshade !
This reshade is made for 144 hz monitors using standard monitor mode, where some games are grey and have no colors, maybe the icc monitor profile get ignored ?

ABOUT USING THIS IN MULTIPLAYER DISCLAIMER:
I've played some multiplayer with this reshade file and i am not banned !

But if they change their mind and start banning reshade users
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BAN !

YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK, THANK YOU.

You have to use the standard reshade version, that's all.

Note about the reshade download:

Do not download the one with full addon support.
Download the one without full addon support because,
the one you can download with limited addon support but signed to be allowed in multiplayer games and the other is
one with full addon support and no depth buffer blockage for offline games, it will probably get you banned in online games.

First of all what is CAS two time pass ? When creating a video file inside a video editor program, before starting to render the final video file, there is one option, it is to render the video with one time pass or two time pass. Creating the video file with two time pass the video has better frame quality, the video looks better, sharper. So i've tried to recreate this effect in pc games using reshade CAS and the ingame CAS and i have to say in some games it realy works well. Doing this with any game goes like this, enable CAS in the ingame settings menu and then enable the 2nd CAS inside reshade.

Reshade V1
sharpening only: 
1st AMD CAS: texture sharpening

Reshade V2 this is the one im using for my playthrough
less shadows, more color and sharpening:
 
1st Unsharp: vignette shadow removal and textures look different, better
2nd Colourfulness: strong color increase value 0.51, re adjust if you like more or less color
3rd AMD CAS: texture sharpening
4th Lightroom for reducing red glowing colors using red exposure value -0.900
If you don't want to use the vignette removal and extra color, disble those effects and use AMD CAS only.

Reshade V3
more color and sharpening:
 
1st Colourfulness: strong color increase value 0.51, re adjust if you like more or less color
2nd CAS: texture sharpening
3rd Lightroom for reducing red glowing colors using red exposure value -0.900
If you don't want to use the extra color, disble those effects and use AMD CAS only.

Reshade V4
creators preset, for making new reshade presets:
1st Unsharp: vignette shadow removal and textures look different, better
2nd Colourfulness: strong color increase value 0.51, re adjust if you like more or less color
3rd AMD CAS: texture sharpening
4th Lightroom for reducing red glowing colors using red exposure value -0.900
5th After Before: compare left and right side, with a line in the midlle.
The same preset as the V2 gameplay file above, but the effects are off and on in one frame !

Note* You can reset the used shader effects and put new effects between the "before after" shader in the shader list for comparing the effects on and off in one frame with the line in the middle.

Install: Copy the reshade files into the game folder Steam\steamapps\common\ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON\Game Doublecheck, if your folder is different.
You can download all 4 preset files and switch between them forth and back ingame. This way you can choose the one you like the most.

When installing Reshade into the game folder, click on unselect all and then select all shader.

Recommended reshade settings:
 Load only enabled effects in the settings menu and use performance mode.

Hotkeys:

Pos1: standard hotkey to enable the reshade menu ingame
Insert: toggle reshade on and off hotkey for comparing the difference
Print: for screenshots will be inside the game folder
Page up: reload the ini file
Page down: performance mode on and off
End: for choosing the next preset

Recommended graphic settings:
Max it out on the highest settings and change two other effects to off.
Check every tab if it is the highest settings possible, because when i hit the overall tab on highest settings,
there was one setting not on the highest, had to do it manually.

Then we disable motion blur (blurry cam movement) and we disable depth of field (blurry background textures).
You can see the settings to disable in the screenshots too, those pictures are the very last.

Autoscaling for preventing framedrops: Off, just use fps max 60 if you have framedrops.

Note: Always use fullscreen mode for maximum performance. Windowed or fullscreen windowed, will have less performance.
If the pc is getting very loud playing this game, just use fps limit 60.

Warning very important: If you enter an area where everything is glowing and the reshade increases the glow, turn the reshade off as long as you are in this area.

If there are any kind of problems with the game, take a look at reddit:

*This reshade was created without a HDR monitor, so maybe this won't work on HDR monitors.

*Important note to everyone who get to feel a headache or eyes hurting, you should disable cas and use lower color values because these effects can create pixel corruption by oversharpening the picture. Using this reshade config it is fine for me, but i had this in other games, even without reshade.
So be carefull when using sharpening and color effects, thank you.

*Feel free to change my reshade settings and upload your own reshade.

If you are a game developer: This is the kind of graphics are what gamers realy want. Full colors, straight textures and clear sight ! Look at the screenshots or test the reshade file by yourself. When you create a new game think about putting some kind of colorcorrection into your new developed game for 8 bit monitors or add something like this in the settings menu for being able to toggle the colorcorrection on and off.
