Ultimate HD Plus  Reshade is a preset that will improve some details of Resident Evil 4 original graphics with minimal or no performance impact. Several adjustments were made for a better color balance and  for a better general look. Reshade resources used: AmbientLight, Border, Colourfulness, Curves, DPX, HDR, Technicolor2, LumaSharpen and Tonemap.


1- 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).

2- Not mandatory, but HIGH RECOMMENDED to use the HD textures from : Resident Evil 4 HD Project


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  (usually [........Steam\steamapps\common\Resident Evil 4\Bin32 ] ) and click  on the game .exe  file ----> Open ----> select Direct3D9 (and click inside this same bar at left side)
----> 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: AmbientLight.fx , Border.fx, Colorfulness.fx, Curves.fx, DPX.fx, FakeHDR.fx, LumaSharpen.fx, Technicolor2 and Tonemap.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 the same Bin32 folder mentioned in step 2  ; 

4- Run the game, use "Home" key to open Reshade menu, click on continue and at the bar near the top  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 > Effects Toggle Key  (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 d3d9 files from [........Steam\steamapps\common\Resident Evil 4\Bin32 ] folder .
