(With STLM 3.1.1)


So you just installed that "E3" lighting mod and then immediately felt: "something is still missing..."?
I had that feeling, too. Until I created this ReShade preset.



(With STLM 3.1.1, showcased by RebornTV)


Intended to use ONLY with Super Turbo lighting Mod by Essenthy: http://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/657/* OR with Wiedzmin Lighting Mod by Mishikedman: http://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/2358/**
* (Looks best with STLM version 3.1.1, closest possible to E3 2014, link for STLM 3.1.1 can be found at "Files" tab, check "Recommended mods" below for fixes)
** (Anamorphic lens flares are no longer usually visible with WLM due to lower exposure)





Improves every lighting situation with advanced post-processing filters.
A lot of work and testing have been put in this preset, in order to bring the closest to prerelease color balance and effects, while maintaining gameplay-friendly look.
This won't hurt your eyes in any way, nor your game performance (unlike some other ReShade presets).





(With STLM 3.1.1)



Features:

-Prerelease-based and balanced bloom. This includes the "purple bloom" effect from E3 2014 35 minute gameplay demo.
-Prerelease-based and balanced anamorphic lens flares. The brightest lightsources now cast horizontal lines just like in E3 2014 35 minute gameplay demo.
-Accurate prerelease-based color balance, brightness and contrast that work well in every situation. 100% story-tested.
-Very low performance impact (at 1080p, 0fps - 3fps, depends on the scene).
-Slightly reduced greenish yellow tint to resemble pre-release browns, purples and color temperature.
-No more "oversaturation" - in any lighting condition.
-No more ugly "glowing" yellows or orange.
-Very subtle film grain. This helps to alleviate color banding.
-Slightly reduced overall saturation in Toussaint, without killing the "colorful" atmosphere.




Installation:

MAKE SURE ORIGIN/STEAM/GOG OVERLAY IS DISABLED.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE ANY RESHADE/SWEETFX INSTALLED, COMPLETELY DELETE IT OR MOVE IT SOMEWHERE ELSE (INCLUDING DXGI.DLL OR D3D11.DLL, AND .FX FILES) BEFORE INSTALLING.
