I N T R O D U C T I O N :

Hello and welcome to your personal guide on how to make your Nier:Automata™ experience — the Definitive one you deserve.
Unfortunately, Square Enix / Platinum Games did a shitty job when they made the PC version of the game.
Well, I'm here to tell you that you don't have to be satisfied with the mediocrity that is the state of the game's various unfixed, ungiven-a-shit-about bugs and visual quality discrepancies.
Just follow this Guide and you'll be experiencing this beautiful game exactly as we all should have experienced it if the developers + Square Enix just did their fucking jobs correctly.
Thanks to our modding community, this version has now become the de-facto version to play (in my opinion).

You will need the following items in order to proceed with this guide:

  1. A decent computer that can run this game.
  2. ‏‏‎
  3. Attention to Detail.
  4. You have to start the game once before beginning this guide.
    Also you must start the game immediately after installing FAR to verify it worked.
    Those 2 are critical steps.
    It is critical to go through the process very carefully because for one reason or another unless you do everything I say step by step, you'll encounter stupid stuff like the white screen issue (almost as if the game is wondering what the eff is going on with it's files) — so please pay attention to detail.
    ‏‏‎
  5. Nier:Automata™ / Either the singular release or the "Game of the YoRha™ Edition")
  6. ‏‏‎
  7. 7-Zip — a file archiver (really good one).






  1. Start the game once, in Vanilla form, prior to beginning this guide.
  2. ‏‏‎
  3. Create a Folder named: "textures" on your desktop. (I'll explain why later)
  4. ‏‏‎
  5. Download "Preparation Folders" under the FILES TAB, in the Miscellaneous files section. Extract all the folders into your NieR Automata install directory.
  6. ‏‏‎
    Alternatively --- you could manually do it:
