This mod/preset is designed to help you get the sharpest, cleanest image you may get out of your game without the need to force anything upon your gpu and taken a massive performance hit.

I spent many years injecting shaders into games and for the longest time I was like everyone else and always skrewing over the lighting and actually making the overall image blurrier than it by default was. This the final product of solving those issues.

INSTALLATION:
  1. http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVoodoo2/ and download the latest version
  2. Open zip
  3. Extract "dgVoodooCpl.exe" and "dgVoodoo.conf" to where you have your game installed. Ex:  C:\GOG Games\No One Lives Forever
  4. Enter the "MS" folder in the zip
  5. Then the "x86" folder
  6. Extract "D3DImm.dll" and "DDraw.dll" to where you have your game installed. Ex: C:\GOG Games\No One Lives Forever
  7. Run "dgVoodooCpl.exe"
  8. Under the "General" tab change the option for "Output API" to be "Direct3D 12 (feature level 11.0)"
  9. Click the "DirectX" tab
  10. I recommend changing the "VRAM" to "4096 MB" and the "Resolution" to one you desire
  11. I also recommend under "Texturing" section to change "Filtering" to "Force anisotropic 16x" and to change "Antialiasing (MSAA)" to "8x"
  12. And under "Miscellanneous" check off "Bilinear blit stretch", "Force vSync", "Fast video memory access", & "Apply Phong shading when possible"
  13. Then click "Apply" and "OK"
  14. Goto https://reshade.me/ and download the latest version
  15. Run the file after the download finishes
  16. Click on "Click here to select a game and manage its ReShade installation"
  17. Either wait and click the game in the auto search or click the bottom right corner button, "Browse...", and search for the game's exe. Ex: lithtech.exe
  18. When prompted with the question, "Which rendering API does lithtech use?", select "Direct3D 10/11/12"
  19. Check mark "Standard effects", "SweetFX by Ceejay.dk", and "qUINT by Marty McFly"
  20. Click "OK"
  21. I highly recommend then clicking on "Edit ReShade settings"
  22. Then checking off on "Skip Tutorial" then "OK"
  23. Close ReShade installer
  24. Download my mod/preset and just extract it where you installed ReShade or where the game's exe is located
  25. In the games launch menu select the "Display..." option
  26. Then choose "LithTech Direct3D Renderer (d3d.ren)" under the "Renderers:" window
  27. Then under "Displays:" choose "dgVoodoo DirectX Wrapper (display)"
  28. Then choose the same resolution you chose in dgVoodooCpl.exe
  29. Then click OK
  30. Then click the "Advanced..." option
  31. Check "Disable DirectX 6 controls" & "Disable joysticks"
  32. Then click OK
  33. Then click Launch
  34. Then ingame select "Options"
  35. Then select "Display"
  36. Then change "Texture depth" to 32
  37. Then go back to the "Options" menu and select "Performance"
  38. Enable "Sound filtering effects"
  39. ENJOI
