About this game

Based on the popular pen & paper game
DAS SCHWARZE AUGE (The Dark Eye) - Book of Heroes 
takes you straight to the fantasy world of Aventurien, where you can,
together with friends or alone, read dungeons and experience adventures
that can only be overcome by your party.

• Play with up to 4 players by combining the special skills of different species
and professions to defeat enemies, solve puzzles
and overcome challenges in the procedurally generated missions.

• Create your characters from 12 different professions such as Assassin,
mercenary, consecrated Rondrag, knight or black magician and the 4 species of elves,
half-elves, dwarfs, humans and customize the appearance of your characters.

• There are versatile character development opportunities as well as crafting items.
Find powerful items that you can keep in your personal treasure chest
or sell them at face value in the shop.

• Play with friends or alone in single player mode.
Each character you create follows one of 8 personal goals and has its own agenda.
Play with your companions or hire suitable heroes in the “Black Boar Inn”.

This file was created for ReShade version 4.5.4.
1. ReShade 4.5.4 install: full content, works perfectly
(Since everything works well with ReShade 4.5.4, an update to ReShade 4.6.+ is not absolutely necessary!)

Instructions for version 4.6, 4.7, +.
Select effect packages to install:
2.1. Standard effect is already switched on
2.2. Legacy standard effects (only select this when using old presents) on
Everything else off!
2.3. Select legacy standard effects: all on!

This is important, otherwise
Aventuria ReShade will not work properly !

3. Before you close the setup tool,
switch on "Skip tutorial" and "Performance Mode".
Then everything should start automatically.
Close setup tool

4. Install
Aventuria ReShade:
- Insert
Aventuria ReShade file (DefaultPreset.ini) in the program folder:
C:\ ... \
The Dark Eye: Book of Heroes\DefaultPreset.ini (exe is located)

5. Start Game:
ReShade starts automatically the first time (screen info above left)
and should take over
Aventuria ReShade (DefaultPreset.ini) completely and after a short loading time.
Depending on the system, this is very quick and can lead to short stuttering.

I ask for a short feedback, should a new ReShade update cause problems with
Aventuria ReShade.
I try to update in a timely manner. thank you
