About this mod

Another reshade for DS1.

Permissions and credits

Many existing reshade presets are using a "d3d9.dll" thing. I find those presets with a "d3d9.dll" can't really help me. I don't know why but it seems that only reshade presets with "dgxi.dll" or "d3d11.dll" work on my PC. I can hardly find a DS1 reshade preset which uses a "d3d11.dll" in Nexusmods, so I download reshade framework and decide to make a preset myself. 

But I don't have any experience on this. I don't even know what those terms like SMAA or MXAO actually mean. So I just turn every one of them on and off to see whether it's good for my game performance, and the numerical value are kind of complex for me so I just leave them default. Fortunately I'm quite satisfied with some of the effects with their default numerical values. And these effects are exactly what this preset of mine contains.

  1. Download reshade framework from here if you don't have one.
  2. Double-click what you've downloaded and select your DARKSOULS.exe. It's often located in place like"steamapps\common\Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition\DATA".
  3. Click on "Direct3D 10+", which is in the middle of the three options.
  4. Click "Yes" when it asks you if you wish to do something.
  5. Click "OK".
  6. Download my preset and put "Taoerche's favor.ini" into the folder you just found your DARKSOULS.exe.
  7. Start the game, there should be some English sentences at the top left of the screen. Press "shift+F2" when it counts back to 0.
  8. Follow the tutorial, choose my "Taoerche's favor" when you need to choose a preset, and then reload.
  9. It's done! Finally! Now prepare to die.
