About this mod

A reshade config, which tries to make the game look more vibrant without going over the top.

Permissions and credits
Since there are not that many Reshade configs out yet (and none of the ones out fits my taste), I decided to create my own.
The difference to the vanilla look is very subtle, you can see it best after installing the preset and toggling the effects using the "Home"-key (it looks like lifting the fog).
After finishing, I thought I should take a minute to upload it here to hopefully make someone happy ;)

If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comment section. Have fun :)



--- THIS CONFIG WAS MADE USING RESHADE 3.1.1 ---

Notes

Performance
If you use v1.3, you will experience a little performance hit due to the activated MXAO-effect.
You can deactivate it by using the "End"-key, this wont change the appearance of the preset, just remove the shadowing-effect of MXAO and thus give you a slight performance increase.

Dark nights
For those who dont want the nights to be realistically dark: you guys should use v1.1 of the preset.
In v1.2 and onwards I darkened the nights a little bit, so it would fit what I know from the real world (at least nights are that dark where I live^^).



Important Controls

Effects (all effects simultaneously except MXAO) can be toggled using the "Scroll Lock"-key.
MXAO can be toggled separately using the "End"-key.




Installation

1. Dowload the reshade framework from https://reshade.me .
2. Double-click the file you just downloaded.
3. Click "Select game" and select your KCD exe-file.
4. Choose "Direct3D 10+".
5. When prompted if you wish to download the shaders, click "Yes".
6. When the download is done, you can close the program.
7. Unpack my zip-file and move the ini-file to the directory where your KCD executable is.
8. Start the game, press Shift+F2, follow the tutorial and instead of creating a new file,
pick the ini you just put in your KCD-directory.
DONE.



Uninstallation

1.
Remove the following from the KCD directory (where the KCD executable is): "reshade"-folder, dxgi.dll, dxgi.ini, dxgi.log (only exists if you have loaded the framework at least once), Hint-Reshade_preset.ini.
DONE.



Changelog

v1.3
Added MXAO and a key to separately toggle the effect (the "End"-Key).

v1.2

Tweaked the colors to look more realistic (which obviously is a subjective feeling ;) ).
Added key-bindings so you can actually toggle all the effects with the "Scroll Lock"-key (if you are not "experienced" enough to know how to do it any other way).

v1.1
Tweaked the tone a bit (which only makes a slight difference during the day, but lets you see much better at night).
