    MY TOP 3 LIGHTING MODS to use alongside this mod (in order of preference) :

    --> Phoenix Lighting Mod version 2

    --> Wiedzmin Lighting Mod version 8 (more desaturated)

    --> Phoenix Lighting Mod version 7.1 (more contrast)


    NOT RECOMMENDED :

    --> Vanilla : too warm

    --> Phoenix Lighting Mod version 13 : harsh light

    Edit : You can download the full modlist in the Files section.

    TROUBLESHOOTING !! READ THIS !!

    --> Make sure you followed the install instructions correctly
    --> Make sure you installed a lighting mod ( see post above )
    --> Make sure you switched to "Performance mode" in the Reshade overlay
    ( https://staticdelivery.nexusmods.com/images/952/3988038-1564600803.png )



    P: My game is way too blurry!
    A: Depending on your resolution/game settings, the blur caused by the antialiasing technique FXAA can be too strong. You can either disable it in the reshade overlay or lower the effect (first slider)

    P: The colors are completely washed out!
    A: The preset was designed with slightly desaturated greens, more saturated reds, stronger white curve etc. You can try a different lighting mod to pair with (changes the result enormously), or tweak qUINT_lightroom to your liking. Or maybe you simply don’t like my preset.

    P: I play on a potato and I even can’t afford to use the lite preset.
    A: You can still benefit from the same color shading by only selecting Technicolor 2 and qUINT_Lightroom for a fps loss of maybe 1-2


    HOW TO UNINSTALL

    Remove the following files:
    - dxgi.dll
    - Reshade.ini
    - Exodus_Original.ini / Exodus_Extreme.ini / Exodus_Lite.ini
    - reshade-shaders folder

    Hey, it looks nice for what i got running, but either its my fault for doing something wrong or this needs an update.
    Its my first time doing anything with re-shade (Version 4.7.0) so i dont know whats going on or how to fix it but i get 3 errors on startup for

    Lightroom [qUINT_lightroom.fx] failed to compile

    FXAA [aaFXAA.fx] failed to compile

    FXAA [FXAA.fx] failed to compile

    screenshots: https://imgur.com/a/sdz0YZc

    Is there any way to fix this?

      Unfortunately I have to get rid of it, as it is right now, my game is way too dark now once the sun settles or Im in a building/cave etc.
      I dont mind using Cat potion in the wild but if i cant see anything in a house when i talk to someone or such, its too much :/

    What is the file directory when using the steam version? I think this is for GOG?

    2- Install reshade and select witcher3.exe, located in the x64 folder (...\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt GOTY\bin\x64).

    I got to C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\The Witcher 3\Config backup\bin My only options after that are...

    C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\The Witcher 3\Config backup\bin\config
    C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\The Witcher 3\Config backup\bin\config\base
    C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\The Witcher 3\Config backup\bin\config\r4game\user_config_matrix\pc

    Can someone run me though how to use this with the steam version?

    Are you still working on the version with raytracing? The link in the readme is broken. If you are I'd love to buy it and mess around with it a bit!

    Thibaultnt,

    I really like this re-shade it's replaced my old re-engaged from ver2.0. I was able to tweak my settings almost just right. Colorful dry, cold days, intense natural light, not bloomish or saturated with Wiedzmin Lighting Mod. My nights are close to prefect, yet the night sky and moon are still too bright after gamma and slight tv adj. Any more settings or mods you recommend that would help with darker nights, almost torch needed. Or anyone that has close to the same set up with this. I use friendly mediation and cannot merge darker nights properly to save my life. I got a lot into this already lol. Thanks everyone for any help or advice.

    In my opinion, the surface sharpen is completely pointless when you dull it down with FXAA. Save some FPS and turn off Surface sharpen and FXAA and get the exact same look.

      You are fully capable of deciding and doing that yourself

    the guide says that the impact is 10-15, but it doesn’t work for me, it takes a couple of FPS

    Jesus Christ. What resolution are you playing this at? It absolutely blows on my setup when running at 4k....

    i9 9900ks (5ghz all cores)
    32gb DDR4 2900mhz
    2080ti FTW Hydro

    What gives?

    I am about 40fps when I was 75fps before turning on pascals ray tracing effect?

    What is the secret?

    Ok, so I've tried installing this several times but only got it to work when I didn't use all the mods listed in the creators full mod list. It looked decent but I was using PTLM ultimate. I didn't notice much difference. Could be because I used ultimate instead of version 2 like listed. Easy fix. But when install ALL the mods from the mod list, the game won't start and has tons of issues that can't be resolved with the script merger. Can anyone help me get all of these mods into the game? Thank you

    How do I get the Exodus Extreme reshade? The file only contains the Original and Lite versions. I can't see the qUINT_bloom.fx or qUINT_RT.fx under the reshade settings. Is it still possible to get the extreme preset?
