Permissions and credits
"Advanced Graphical Improvements for Arkham Knight" (A.K.A: AGIAK) enhances and improves the base graphics of the game by advanced shaders injected with Reshade by introducing the following effects; advanced color correction, ambient obscurance, screen space reflections, SMAA anti aliasing, and a dynamic Depth of Field effect, all with a quick, customizable install.


  • Customizable Install
  • Advanced Color Correction
  • Ambient Obscurance
  • Screen Space Reflections
  • SMAA Anti Aliasing
  • Dynamic Depth of Field

Customizable Install:

All of the features and effects listed can be instantly and seamlessly toggled on or off in game. Don't like an effect? Turn it off!

List of commands:
All effects are toggled on by default

  Num 1: Toggle Ambient Obscurance
  Num 2: Toggle Color Correction
  Num 3: Toggle Depth of Field
  Num 4: Toggle Screen Space Reflections
  Num 5: Toggle Lighting Effects
  Num 6: Toggle Sharpening Effects

Dynamic Depth of Field:

The dynamic Depth of Field effect seamlessly lowers the depth of field intensity when entering combat, or using the Batmobile, so you can stay aware of your surroundings when it matters, and have a blurred and out of focus background when it doesn't. 


WARNING: If you have installed Reshade BEFORE extracting the zip file, it will not work properly. Reshade must not be installed since the ZIP already includes everything you need.

To install, download the zip file and extract to "...\Batman Arkham Knight\Binaries\Win64" (the directory should contain "BatmanAK.exe").
Do NOT just extract the configuration file to the directory! This mod has files that vanilla Reshade does not contain.

This has been tested and confirmed working with Reshade version 4.0.2. Newer or older versions of Reshade may not work, use them at your own risk.


I will freely provide support for bugs and crashes related to this mod, provided you have the correct version of Reshade installed.

Crashes related to the game itself should be posted to the game forums, and crashes related to Reshade itself (NOT my mod) should be posted to the Reshade forums.


Q: Am I supposed to be seeing the mod effects through the menu/UI?

A: Unfortunately, yes. Reshade cannot automatically detect when a menu is opened, or where the UI is, so it is totally normal to see the effects through the menu/UI. 

Q: Is there a way to toggle the effects without a number pad?

A: Yes! You can press "Home" to open the Reshade configuration menu, where you can enable or disable effects.

Q: Is there a way I can edit this mod to my preferences?

A: Also yes! If you open the Reshade configuration menu, you can edit many of the settings I have already edited. Just do not post a modified version of my preset anywhere, and keep in mind that I will not provide support for modified versions.


This mod should be compatible with everything that doesn't use a dxgi.ini. That means it isn't compatible with other Reshade presets or an ENB (if one even exists for Arkham Knight). It should be compatible with all skins or gameplay enhancements.
