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.

- INSTALLATION STEPS        

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  Sekiro folder (usually [......Steam\steamapps\common\Sekiro] ) and click  on the game .exe  file ----> Open ----> select Direct3D 10/11/12 (and click inside this same bar) ----> In the shaders collections window click on "Uncheck All" , you will see that the first option can'tbe unchecked, no problem,  roll down and select ONLY the last option (Legacy Standard Effects) ----> confirm and wait  ----> in the FIRST shaders list click on "Uncheck All"  again  ----> OK  and WAIT until the download of the next one is finished ----> in the SECOND shaders list  verify if all boxes are enabled and click on  OK ---->  Its DONE ----> Close the installation.

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" , 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. 


             
ENJOY AND PLEASE CLICK ON "ENDORSE" IF YOU LIKE THE PRESET!
