Phoenix Enhancer is a preset that gives a vivid visual for The Elder Scrolls Online, made with the following Reshade resources:  Colourfulness, Curves, HDR, LiftGammaGain, LumaSharpen, Technicolor2, Tonemap and Vibrance . The performance impact should be minimal or none, depending on your system specs.

ONLY for NVIDIA users
:  If you are using HDMI conection, Its VERY IMPORTANT to set your Dynamic Range in full, in the graphics card control panel (see this image).
For AMD Users:  open AMD control panel, click on Gaming tab > Games >Global Graphics > Display > Pixel Format  and set to: RGB 4:4:4 Pixel
Format PC Standard (Full RGB).


1- Download the Reshade version 4.9.1 from here , and extract its .exe file somewhere ;

2- Run the executable to install the Reshade ----> Select the game or browse until find the game executable .exe folder  [ Usualy .........../Zenimax Online/ The Elder Scrolls Online/Game/Client] folder and click on Eso64.exe ----> Open ----> select Direct3D10/11/12 (if nothing happens click on this same bar) ----> In the shaders collections window click on "Uncheck All" , you will see that the first option can't be unchecked, no problem,  roll down and select ONLY the last option (Legacy Standard Effects) ----->  confirm and wait  the download of the shaders ---> In the shaders window you can click on "Uncheck all" and check only these .fx files:  Colorfulness.fx, Curves.fx, FakeHDR.fx, LiftGammaGain.fx, LumaSharpen.fx, Technicolor2, Tonemap.fx and Vibrance.fx ---> Confirm and close the little window when you see the message  "Reshade Setup was successful".

ATTENTION: The firewall from some antiviruses can block the download of shader files during Reshade installation (Message:"Unable to Finish Download"). If it is happening to you turn off the firewall temporalily and try to install Reshade again. In some cases even Windows can block the installation and you will need to check the options in Windows Warning to go on with the install.  There is not any viruses in these files, its a false positive.

3- Download my mod from files tab of this page, and extract the file Phoenix.ini to your [.........../Zenimax Online/ The Elder Scrolls Online/Game/Client] folder ; 

4- Run the game, use "Home" key to open Reshade menu, click on the bar near the top and select the file "Phoenix.ini" (like the exemple in image bellow), so click on "continue" bars and "Finish" bar at the bottom of the menu, then "Home" key again to close it.


5- (Optional) If you want to set a hotkey to Enable/Disable the Reshade Effects you can do it on Reshade menu Settings tab > Effect Toggle Key option (I use F3 key to turn ON/OFF all the effects, but it will not be activated by default after your installation, you will need to activate it by yourself if you  want, cause Reshade does not allow to save it on the preset ini file which I shared here ). 



To uninstall you need to delete: reshade - shaders folder, Phoenix.ini, Reshade.ini and the 2 dxgi files from  [.........../Zenimax Online/ The Elder Scrolls Online/Game/Client] folder . 

*** Reshade.ini file was introduced in Reshade version 3.4.1. If using previous versions you do not have it but you will have another   dxgi  file to delete instead: dxgi.ini. 


* MXAO was removed in the version 1.1. It was causing issues. 

** DOF was removed in version 1.1a. After some ESO updates the effect is not working fine.
