About this mod

ReShade preset using the Magic HDR shader combined with a few others to simulate a cinematic "HDR" effect. Low performance impact!

Permissions and credits

(Updated for version 1.3)

Download the newest version of ReShade at Home (
Launch the ReShade Setup file and select "Click here to select a game and manage it's ReShade installation"
Find "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (sekiro.exe)" in the list of games that pops up and select it
Select "Direct3D 10/11/12" for the rendering API
Check the boxes for the shader packages you need to install which are:

SweetFX by
Color effects by prod80
Insane-Shaders by Lord of Lunacy
FXShaders by luluco250

If you do not want to install all the shaders in each pack the specific shaders you need are:

Curves.fx from SweetFX
PD8003_Curved_Levels.fx from Color effects
ReVeil.fx from Insane-Shaders
MagicHDR.fx from FXShaders

Copy my preset file "Sekiro HDR 1.3.ini" into the Sekiro folder, wherever you have game folders installed on your PC.
Launch the game and hit the Home key to pull up the menu for ReShade. It might have you go through a tutorial so just click through that. Once you have access to the menu select the drop down bar at the top and select Sekiro HDR 1.3.ini from the list.
Make sure you have the ingame brightness set to the default setting (5)

And you should be good to go!

Update history:

1.1 - Fixed a bug I found with the original shaders used. Replaced with 2 different shaders and rearranged shader order to fix overly bright areas.

1.3 - Completely fixed ALL color banding problems, and has better contrast/colors. Overall effect is much more accurate.

This is a slightly tweaked version of my Global HDR preset I've been working on for a while now. The global version works pretty well with every game I've tested so far, but the black level in Sekiro is messed up so I had to make a specific version for this one. You can find the global version here Magic HDR ReShade preset for Nioh 2 at Nioh 2 Nexus - Mods and community
