PRC . X Legacy edition:
" I'm retiring from Fallout 4 modding after 5 years of work. PRC.X is my last version of an ENB I tailored over the past years.
Even if this release is not perfect (and will never be...), it is still the
closest to the original vision I had when I started it.
I'm proud and happy to share it as is.
"

Please delete any previous Reshade or Enb before installing PRC: enbseries and reshade folders, dxgi.dll, enblocal.ini, enbseries.ini, reshade.fx, d3d11.dll, d3dcompiler_46e.dll


PRC install is easy

It only requires to drag&drop files into the Fallout 4 main folder.


  1• Download the latest Enb binariesand drop ONLY d3d11.dll and d3dcompiler_46e.dll into the Fallout 4 main folder, where the game's .exe are.

  2 • Download the PRC Enb preset of your choice : 
- PRC. X Lite: Simple and easy to use, all the camera settings are preset. High FPS.
  Good for gameplay, yet sexy looking with lot of different looks.

- PRC.X Regular:
The version everyone is used to know. Good balance between gameplay and visual quality.
  Relatively powerful yet simple to use, comes with lot of preset in the optional files.

- PRC.X Advanced:
A more complex version of Regular, with more films, cameras and grading.
 The camera, lens and other regular options are now scattered in all the ENB passes using HDR datas.
  This is the replication of camera and you'll feel at home if you are photograph.
 Comes with a complete built-in manual for you to learn how to use it.

Once you downloaded the PRC version you want Then just drop all the files into the Fallout 4 main folder, where the game's .exe and the Enb binaries are.

       Do the same with the optional presets for the regular version I made. (this preset won't work for Advanced or Lite)

  3 • Recommanded but not mandatory : Download and install NAC.X - LEGACY EDITION and make sure to enable the built in Patch for ENB.

  4 •
Have a look at the "Performance & Optimization" below and the Helper Screen I made for PRC.

Ingame be sure to set you weather mod renderer right in the enbeffect,


That's it, you're good to go. Have fun!


If you have any doubts on how to use PRC,
the preset uses a built-in helper with all the information you need to know.

_

If you just want natural and good looking visual
and aren't using any preset or don't plan to take advantage of the camera box from PRC to create your own,
I suggest you give a try to

the most fps friendly & easy to use ENB to give a clean & natural look to your game.

> PRC has been build on a calibrated monitor for ULTRA settings with TAA & HBAO+. A resolution of 1050p minimum is required. <

- Artifacts can be perceived with some foliage mods if Lens aberration or dof chroma is set too high because of ingame TAA, as well as some ghosting because of grain and TAA. If it really bothers you, using ingame FXAA instead of TAA fixes the issue or reduce aberration and chroma.

DIMMED PIPBOY:

- Dimmed pipboy is half on purpose, because this is how would look this kind of screen in real life, and half because I need to drastically lower the input brightness of the game before my corrections and process. For an unknown reason the pipboy UI is linked to it somehow.
If raising the color luminosity from the game's options/display isn't enought you can raise the " fPipboyScreenEmitIntensity " in your fallout4.ini/display settings (or Fallout4pref.ini, it doesn't matter) to compensate. (if the line doesn't exist just create it)
