    Wild Hunt Re-Engaged V5.1 now released (18 Aug)

    I have Wiedzmin Lighting Preset to V5.1 to work with newly update Wiedzmin Lighting V7.5

    Changes:

    STLM Version- No changes
    Wiedzmin Lighting Version- Adjusted colors/brightness/contrast/disabled FXAA to be used with Wiedzmin V7.5

    I have also now included Adaptive, Traditional and ReShade 2.0 versions into one file. You only need to install one version. Adaptive adjusts automatically based on your location and needs the mod DifferentSFX. Traditional is one preset that applies to every area of the game. ReShade 2.0 has presets for each location but, doesn't use DifferentSFX to automatically switch presets.

    Note: This uses ReShade 1.1 because DifferentSFX doesn't work with ReShade 3.0.

    Please see install video on DESC page under Install Steps to see how to install. Video has been updated as of V5.0.

    Thanks to Mondello90 for testing this for me prior to release.

    For those that want a way to launch both DifferentSFX.exe and your Witcher3.exe with one click and have the DifferentSFX close down when you exit out of Witcher 3 feel free to use this BAT/exe file. Works great

    Any chance you'd re-create your traditional / non-adaptive reshade for use with Reshade 3.0+? You've done an amazing job!

      I tried before but, it didn't look exactly the same. I probably could get it pretty close if I took some time but, just dont have that time right now unfortunately. Very busy with work.

    Hey, i installed this reshades, all is good, beautiful colours, i like it, but i have some issue. My shadows is too dark sometimes its hard to see anybody there. On ur screens shadows not so dark as my. I tried to set gamma on max in game settings, feels better with shadows but light places (like roads) become too bright. Hope u can give me some advice, cos i really like this mod.

      You can try adjusting curves for each presets.

      Open LocationPresets/ReShade/<location folder/sweetFx.cfg and look for

      #define Curves_contrast and lower the value.

      Thanks, its work, but now i got another problem. I can run Witcher 3 only 1 time per reset. If i try to run it 2nd time i got just black screen at start and nothing happens. I can see only reshade massages and can use F10 to turn it on of off.

      It happens cause of mods. After i disable them all in NMM game work perfectly. When i start adding them 1 by 1 and after every mod start the game, black screen spawns. For example, when i add HQ Faces after HDRP i got black screen. When i disable HQ Faces, game start well. When i disable HDRP and add HQ Faces game start well, but when i add HDRP it cause black screen. Is Witcher 3 have limit for visual mods and how can i bypass this limit?

    I have installed reshade 3.4.0, different sfx, and copied this mod's files (adaptive version) all properly. I start different sfx exe first, then The Witcher. Now how exactly do I enable *this* mod? Are you saying that I don't need to press F2 or load any ini or anything?

      Follow my install video on the description page. If you would have you would know that this uses reshade 1.1 and is included in the file not reshade 3.4. Not trying to sound rude, promise. Just my install steps are there for a reason. ;-p

    Hi.....
    I have two questions for you if you do not mind answering.....
    Can we add borders in the reshade to have a more filmic scenery.....?
    Aldo is it possible to make the shadows pop out more at night.....?
    Thanks again.... i m using the adaptive wlm preset with the last phoenix along with ulm and it is a work of art.....!!!

      You can enable border in the the SweetFX.cfg file. Look for #define USE_BORDER 0 and change to 1. You may have to mess with its settings and you will have to do the same to all location presets if you are using the differentSFX version.

      ReShade doesn't have shadow adjustments so, you would have to mess with liftgammagain settings in the sweetFX.cfg too.

      Glad to hear it is working good with the phoenix mod.

      Hey firemanaf.... the more i m testing the game with your reshade & phoenix lighting the more astonished i am.....!!!
      May i ask you one more thing......
      Since all of your editions about wlm work more or less really good with both wlm and phoenix, would you happen to have in mind which one of the wlm reshades of re engaged give the darkest atmosphere in nights and interiors...? I m using your last release and i m really satisfied about the feeling the nights give, but if you can recall if a previous edition is more dark it would be good to let me know.....
      Finally is there something to tweak to darken the nights without messing with the final outcome.....?
      Thank you so much for the support......!!!!!

      Thank you. I'm glad to hear that. I managed to try out the new pheonix lighting today with this. Only got to test out White Orchard and was happy with the result.

      As far as nights,.sadly no you can't adjust nights without affecting days. Reshade is one setting for all time of days. Unlike ENB. I recommend using mod like darker nights if you want darker nights without messing up the reshade. If you want to mess with reshade setting look at adjusting curves slightly but that will affect day too unfortunately

      No i m not changing anything...... don t want to change the balance of your work..... also i don t want to mess with phoenix so i won t use darker nights ( even though i m a big fun of this mod )..... both mods re engaged and phoenix are too good to be tweaked.......!!!!!
      My main question was though if any previous versions of re re engaged, 4,1 4,2 4,3 5,0 5,1 ( i m using 6,1 ) provides any darker feeling...... i m really amazed and don t won t to tweak anything, but if something is there i d like to test it... so if you remember making any one of them any darker, please let me know.....
      Thank you so much for providing all this support......!!!

      Well appreciate the kind words. As far as past presets I really dont recall any being darker than any of the others. Settings are fairly similar with just slight adjustment to colors for better balance with weather mod updates.

      I have to say with the latest Phoenix v2, daytime it look amazing.
      Nights are the issue, you can notice it when you talk with the baron nighttime near the fireplace in the castle, the orange is really strong. also on Ciri cutscene near the fire (when she set up the race with the baron) the dark around her face (and all the other participants) is really wrong (not using any shadow mod).

      Still, when the sun rise it really look good. Just the nights are the issue.

      Sadly, with ReShade there is not separate day and night settings. But, I haven't done a lot of testing with this version of Re-Engaged with the new Pheonix mod. I probably could increase redc amount under DPX in the sweetfx config file. That may help.

      Sorry i hope it didn't sound like i wanted to criticize.
      Was just to give feedback about the new Phoenix and your great Reshade, so you know where to start if, in future, you want to adapt it to the new lighting mod.

      Also the test was with the Wiedzmin Lighting VIII version of this reshade, i supposed that its more "close" to the new Phoenix.
      But now i go give it a try with STLM version and see what happens.

      Cheers

      Nope, I didn't feel that way or take in a negative way. I always appreciate feedback. Just pointing out its hard to balance days and nights with ReShade cause it is one setting for both.

      It crashes with the reshade? Could it be the differentsfx mod? If you remove the differentsfx does it start? If so you need to run script merger. If it's fine it could be the reshade in which case rename the dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll and see if helps.

    Currently using Re-engaged with Weidzman adaptive version, I think it is working.

    But I would like to know if there is any other mod/preset or value I can edit to have a more DOF effect like this mod:
    https://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/1558/

    I love DOF!!

    hi firemanaf!
    i know you are busy but hopefully you have some time left

    wanted to ask you if there is a way to change the reshade settings ingame. still im using your adaptive version with reshade 1.1 and i only know how to toggle on/off the full reshade preset using F10 but not how i can disable particular ones.

    especially the red tint/light, still dont know which exactly, is bothering me a bit. i like the red color a lot in the whole game but since im using BrutalFace i have to reduce/modify it a bit (Geralt looks like he has taken a too hot bath all the time) and also dont break the concept of your reshade.

    hope you can point me in the right direction and tell me what i could do for this

    at any rate thank you for this unique reshade of yours

      Hi,
      If its only one location you can open the LocationPresets folder and then the location you want. Then open sweetFX config file and scroll down to the DPX section. Then increase the value for #define RedC to decrease the red amount in the image.

    Hello, first i like to thank you for your amazing work.
    Second, it is my first time modding this game and installed your Adaptive version for Phoenix VIII (WLM) thanks to your easy tutorial on youtube.
    The only hot keys that work for me though are F8 and F10. According to your hotkeys description this only turns on/off F8 SMAA and F10 Lumasharpen and colors. Is this correct ?
    Finally i don't think its looking like the pictures some users and yourself posted. Mine looks brutally contrasted, Geralt's face just explode in white as well as some clouds in the sky, loosing their gray scale.
    I think i'm doing something wrong, i also calibrated my TV in this case with the website that you provided. Some words of wisdom would be appreciated.
    Thanks a lot for your time and effort.

      Hi and thanks.

      I removed the hotkeys on the latest Weidzmin preset due to always getting comments from users on how to disable so, all those effects are supposed to be F10 but, looks like I forgot the SMAA one.

      As far as the brightness it is possible its like that at times with Wiedzmin. I didn't do heavy testing when I updated the preset. I am no longer even playing this game and only updated due to some requests so, I didn't test nearly as much as I could have to make sure all situtation were good. Now, the testing I did do, I did notice the bright sky at times but, not the face. But, again could be the contrast settings.

      I also really just lost motivation with working on Weidzmin preset cause I would get a good version out and he would say that was his last version for it and then he did that like 3 more times after that and I just got tired of trying to update. Especially when I am so busy with my Skyrim ENBs.

      Sorry about that.
