Description of the Reshade:
Over the months, this ReShade has grown and taken shape to do a lot more than just lightly improving a few things. Going from changing just a few color pallets to replacing some major components of the lighting system. 

Currently I've created 2 types of presets. One is heavier and thus slightly more difficult to install (3.5) While the other one is much lighter and easier to install.
They have their own perks, cons and pros. So it is up to you to pick which one you would you try out. Below you can find out more about the differences and the features both of these versions provide. 

This is the most comprehensive and technical ReShade preset for BL2 to date. 

If you like my work, consider endorsing the mod and/or leaving a comment! 
Thanks !

Installation 4.0
Installation 3.5 

Known issues:
- Green color in the rainbow of one map may look dull and darkened. This is due to a color shift in neo blue and blue to be create aqua blue instead. However this mostly doesn't affect most greens in game. [present only in 4.0]

- The 3.5 version might have a bit over saturation or feel too colorful. Might fix it one day.
