About this mod

A sort of dark and moody ReShade preset I like using for screenshots.

Permissions and credits
This is a ReShade preset that is very high in contrast, emphasizing bone-dry whites and sharp shadows. The theme here that I was going for is a world in peril - a parched land - sort of dark and moody, and it is very much the aesthetic I personally go for when screenshotting landscapes. Due to the very bright areas here and there, this would probably be better suited for just screenshotting purposes for many people. You'll be able to see what I mean by looking at the screenshots. The companion select cards are also very dark until you scroll over to the one you want. I've included a screenshot for that as well, so you can get a better idea. 

Although most of these screenshots were taken with DAI Cinematic Tools, they were not altered at all. 

How to Install ReShade: 

  • You must first download ReShade from here.
  • Download this preset. 
  • Upon opening the ReShade setup tool, it will prompt you to find your DragonAgeInquisition.exe, similar to how you found it for DAI Mod Manager. (Program Files -> Origin Games -> Dragon Age Inquisition).
  • You will then be able to select Direct3D 10+ from the listed options. 
  • Download the offered shaders. Unzip and add this preset file into the folder that contains the DragonAgeInquisition.exe (you should see the new ReShade folders there now as well). 
  • After downloading the shaders offered from ReShade, you will then be prompted to customize your paths for screenshots, presets, shaders, effects...  
  • If you start up your game and it pretty much immediately closes, you may need to change the dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll (in the same folder that contains the DragonAgeInquisition.exe and new ReShade files). Otherwise, there will be a notification at the top of your game screen letting you know ReShade is working, and you will be led through a brief tutorial. The game should also look like my screenshots.
