Cemu Graphics Packs Settings
The settings listed below are the required graphics pack settings to achieve the same look for my reshade preset.
All other graphics pack settings that you find for BOTW that are not listed here can be set to your preference.

*WARNING - Updating your Graphics Packs via Cemu will remove any packs that you already had installed manually.
Such as the older Distant Fog Removal pack that I provide in my download if you've used my setup previously.
If you do update your graphics packs then don't forget to reinstall/setup Distant Fog Removal along with my other recommended settings.

Enhanced Reflections
LOD Bias (whatever works best for you. I use -16)
No Depth of Field

Anti-Aliasing -> Disable Native AA
Set your native resolution

Distant Fog Removal (Not to be confused with the latest graphics pack version called "Fog and Mist")
* This step is very important to achieve the same exact look for my preset and video here
Distant Fog - Main -> Fog 30% Light x2
Hyrule Castle Base Fog -> 30%
Hyrule Castle Ganons Aura -> 30%
NPC Fog Removal -> 30%
World Fog Fields -> Fog Fields Opacity 50%

An older, functioning version of Distant Fog Removal is included in the download.
All you need to do is extract files for REVO ReShade v5.2 into the Cemu folder.
- If you don't see Distant Fog Removal listed under the Graphics Pack settings then manually move
the folder called BreathOfTheWild_DistantFogRemoval from my download  
into "Cemu > graphicsPacks > downloadedGraphicsPacks > BreathOfTheWild"

Workarounds (Graphics packs)
Reshade Compatibility

Extended Tree LOD mod via Cheat Table

Performance settings - ReShade
Check these settings within ReShade if you want a slight boost in performance
Home tab -> Performance Mode (you'll find it at the bottom right corner of the ReShade overlay)
*WARNING - Performance mode might break the depth buffer for AMD cards.
I've tested this on my 6900 XT and it did not work. Leave performance mode unchecked if anything.

Settings tab -> Only load enabled effects
(if you toggled off any shaders listed below then they won't appear on the home tab unless you disable this setting)

Toggleable Shaders - ReShade
- Prod80 Bloom (if you don't like the bloom effect)
- AMD FidelityFX (if you don't like the sharpening effect)
- ADOF (if you don't like the blur effect in the foreground and distance)
Adaptive Fog (If you don't like the light fog in the distance. Also, see disclaimer below)
* Disable shaders to your liking. Also, disabling some of these shaders could give you better performance.

**RTGI users
- If you find that the grass is looking jagged or shimmering too much you can try to increase the Ray Amount. Ray Amount is set to 3 by default
- WARNING. Increasing Ray Amount will also decrease your performance quite a bit.
- Please double check the 'Fade out range' for RTGI within ReShade and make sure it's set to 0.500000 after you install

- You will notice the adaptive fog while looking at your inventory and briefly during loading screens. This only happens here so, please ignore it or simply turn off Adaptive Fog if you really don't like it
- Certain shrines can be a bit heavy on blue/bloom. There's not much I can do here without messing with the visuals for all other areas outside of shrines (mostly the sky and water in the overworld)
Distant NPC's may be clearly visible in heavy rain/fog depending on how your Distant Fog settings are set. There's no other way around this due to emulation limitations if you followed my Distant Fog settings
- Distant LOD flickering is due to emulation limitations (if there's a better LOD mod or settings that I'm missing out there please let me know)

Installation Instructions
Part 1:
 For Beginners. Advanced users check step 1 and skip to step 5.
1) Download the latest version of ReShade from here
2) Run the ReShade setup and locate Cemu.exe
3) Select 'Vulkan'
If you want to use Vulkan then you have to set the proper API in Cemu settings first.
Personally, I prefer Vulkan + Async shader compile over OpenGL.
Async compile can be found under: Cemu > Options > General Settings > Graphics

4) Click skip, then select the following shader packs and click 'OK'
-Standard effects (mandatory)
-SweetFX by
-qUINT by Marty McFly
-Color effects by prod80
-OtisFX by Otis_Inf
Alternatively, you can install ALL available shader packs if you desire
Excluding the Legacy Shader effects!
Personally, I always install every pack with any fresh intstall

5) Download REVO ReShade from Nexus
6) Extract the files into the main folder for Cemu where the Cemu.exe file is located
7) Install RTGI shader files to reshade-shaders folder
-RTGI shader can be purchased here
Part 2: For Beginners. Advanced users, select REVO ReShade in-game
1) Start the game
2) Press the Home/Pos1 key to open ReShade and run the tutorial
3) Select 'Continue' then open the drop down menu and select REVO ReShade
4) 'Continue'
5) 'Continue'
6) 'Finish' the tutorial
7) Go to Reshade settings and set the toggle key to your preference
-Personally I prefer using Scroll Lock as my toggle key
8) Be sure to set the ReShade usage mode to Performance mode.
9) Close the ReShade configuration window
Part 3: That's it! Play the game and enjoy my preset :D
