Phoenix Samurai Reshade is a preset that will improve some details of Sekiro's 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: Curves, DPX Cineon, LumaSharpen, Technicolor2, 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 version from ;

2- Run the executable to install the Reshade ----> select the game or browse until find the  Sekiro folder (usually [......Steam\steamapps\common\Sekiro] ) and click  on the game .exe  file ----> Next ----> select Direct3D10/11/12  ----> Next ----> Next again ----> In the shaders collections window  roll down and select the last option (Legacy Effects) ----> Next ----> wait  the download of the shaders ---> Next and Finish...

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 your Sekiro main folder ; 

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 ).  

IMPORTANT: If you are using FPS monitoring or recording programs (like FRAPS, for exemple) the game (with Reshade installed) maybe will not open if these kind of software is already running. If you want to use a program like that, open the game FIRST , and during title screen press alt + tab, open the monitoring/recording software and go back to the game. 



  To uninstall you need to delete: reshade - shaders folder, Phoenix.ini, dxgi.dll and any other file with "Reshade" in the name from  Sekiro main folder .
