About this mod

A graphics enhancement mod for Dark Souls using SweetFX shaders

Permissions and credits
BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, GO TO THE IMAGES SECTION AND SEE THE COMPARISON PICTURES FIRST

I've always disliked how desaturated Dark Souls looks, and don't get me wrong. I liked the how the game looks and the atmospheric environments, but I was a bit disappointed that the game's look you can see on the CGs, promotional art, posters, and trailers look different than in the game. That, and also because I love my games to be vibrant with real colors, but still retain the atmosphere and feel of what the game is supposed to be. So I made this. Anyway, I'll try to keep the description nice and simple, instructions are below.

FEATURES:

- SMAA Anti-Aliasing
- Color Correction
- Vibrancy
- HDR
- Contrast Adjustments
- Vignette
- Dithering
- (OPTIONAL) Cartoon Shaders [makes the game look cel-shaded]


PERFORMANCE:
I wouldn't recommend trying this if you can't keep the game running on it's standard 30fps, but it should have little to no drops on modern video cards.

INSTALLATION:
Simply extract the files inside the archive into your Dark Souls folder.

NOTES & OTHERS STUFF
1) To enable the cartoon shaders, open SweetFX_settings.txt and change USE_CARTOON from 0 to 1

2) A fair warning that the cartoon shader will mess up text a bit by making them slightly hard to read. Recommended use only if you are already familiar with most of the in-game text.

3) Turn off DSfix SMAA if you have it on. If you still want to use DSfix's SMAA, you can turn this mod's SMAA by opening SweetFX_settings.txt and set USE_SMAA from 1 to 0

4) You can use FXAA along with SMAA in case you're wondering.
