This preset is an adaptation for Rise of the Tomb raider, based on my TR Visual Redone for the previous TR. It will improve the original graphics of the game with minimal or no performance impact, depending on your system. Adjustments were made for a more realistic look, better color balance and better sharpness.  Reshade resources used: AmbientLight, Border , Curves, Filmic Pass,  HDR, Technicolor2, LiftGammaGain, LumaSharpen, Tonemap and Vibrance.


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).


1- Download the latest Reshade from: https://reshade.me/  ;

2- Run the executable to install the Reshade ----> select the game or browse until find the game executable .exe folder  (usually [........Steam\steamapps\common\Rise of the Tomb Raider ] ) and click  on the game .exe  file ----> select Direct3D10/11/12 (and click inside this same bar ) ----> 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,  Curves.fx, DPX.fx, FakeHDR.fx, FilmicPass.fx, LiftGammaGain.fx, LumaSharpen.fx, Technicolor2, Tonemap.fx and  Vibrance.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 game folder ;

4- Run the game, use "Home" key to open Reshade menu, click on continue and at the bar near the top  choose the file "Phoenix.ini" (like the exemple in image bellow) , so click on "Select", after on "continue" bars and "Finish" bar at the bottom of the menu, then "Home" key again to close it. NOTE: If you dont like the black bars at the top and the bottom of the screen, uncheck Border.fx box in the menu. 


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 )



To uninstall you need to delete: reshade - shaders folder, Phoenix.ini, Reshade.ini and the 2 dxgi files from
[........Steam\steamapps\common\Rise of the Tomb Raider ] folder .
