About this mod

I've designed this ReShade preset for my first playthrough of The Witcher 3. The graphics have been carefully enhanced in order to preserve the beauty that CDPR have created. It will basically make your game look like it's brand new again. For vanilla lighting, STLM, and B&W DLC. Enjoy! :)

Requirements
Permissions and credits
100+ Endorsements!!

Thank you all very much!! :)




Thank you for taking an interest in this little project of mine. Are you here because you want to play 100+ hours of the Witcher 3 with a ReShade preset that's easy on the eyes, one that stays true to CDPR's vision? Well, you came to the right place. ;) Please, step inside my office...



First things first, I just want to say thanks for taking the time to give this mod a try. I know there are tons of ReShade presets out there, and we all have different tastes. Maybe we are the same? :) I should probably mention that this is not my first mod either, I've been modding graphics for various games for many years (see list of mods below), which is why I decided to design this preset for my first playthrough of The Witcher 3. These graphics have been carefully enhanced in order to preserve the beauty that CDPR have created. I feel that I've accomplished that goal....

To summarize, it will basically make your game look like it's brand new again. Oh, and please excuse my basic description page, maybe I'll work on that later! :)

INSTALLATION:
-----------------------

Copy the contents of the "Main files" folder to the bin/x64 folder
of the game installation directory. (where witcher3.exe is located)

Done!


(Optional)
Choose a preset option and copy the "ReShade" to your bin/x64 folder.

Done!


(Optional)
The Advanced Effects folder will enable AO, Indirect Light, and DOF.
Choose an option and copy the contents to your bin/x64 folder.

Done!



IN-GAME SETTINGS:
----------------------------

If possible, set all graphics options to the highest setting.

Turn off in-game sharpening. (Read below for more info)

Set the in-game "Gamma" to the middle.

Please use "Full-screen" resolution to ensure proper image display.

Done!


Note: All preset options that I've included have AA enabled as well.
Do not force hardware AA through your graphics driver.



ABOUT SHARPENING METHODS:
------------------------------------------

"Adaptive Sharpen" is enabled in my presets.
It resembles the in-game sharpening method but looks slightly better.
You may choose to disable it by opening the CustomFX.cfg with notepad.
Look for this line:

#define USE_ADAPTIVESHARPEN 1 <--- change to 0 to disable


"Lumasharpen" is a more common type of sharpening.
You may try my Lumasharpen setting instead. Open SweetFX.cfg, then
look for this line:

#define USE_LUMASHARPEN 0 <--- change to 1 to enable



RESHADE HOTKEYS (CONTROLS):
--------------------------------------------

- F10 to toggle main effect
- Insert to toggle Depth Of Field
- Delete to toggle Ambient Light
- F12 to toggle Gaussian Blur
- Numpad5 to toggle Ambient Occlusion/Indirect Lighting



TROUBLESHOOTING:
--------------------------

Please be sure to remove ReShade files from a previous install before
installing this preset.

Disable any third-party programs, game boosters, FRAPS, etc.

If you get a crash on startup, delete the d3d11.dll and any other
files named "dxgi" from the bin/x64 folder. Then reinstall my preset.

Rename "d3d11.dll" to "dxgi.dll" if the game won't launch.

These files worked flawlessly on my game and I hope the same for you.

Please seek the forum if you need help. Enjoy! :)
