[Guide] Reshade 3 + lightmaps + custom presets

Post#1 » Thu Jul 05, 2018 7:08 pm

Welcome everyone,

I had an idea for a quite long time to make video guide for a fantastic tool - Reshade 3.
Finally, 12hrs later, one pack of cigarettes and 2 coffees its ready.

What is Reshade?

Some of you remember Sildurs mod that enabled SweetFX in RoR client with some extra tweaks thanks to Nvidia Inspector app.
It was some time ago. Development of SweetFX (and its main program - Reshade) went further and latest version 3.4 provides ingame UI, customisable shaders values on-a-fly and whats most important - simple way of saving and sharing created presets. Somehow it also enables to run dx9 games using dx10+ or OpenGL libraries, thanks to that its possible to toggle lightmaps now without altering any client files. With only one .ini file its so easy to let other people use your own custom preset. Multiple effects and shaders provide enough tools to create own immersive experience ingame, like dark and bloody Orc atmosphere, epic and pale with a nostalgic pinch Dark elf vision of world, or shinny and full of fire Empire perspective.

I tried to keep video easy to follow for either RoR beginners and veterans. I based installation on latest "cleaned" Client provided by RoR devs website source.

I hope you enjoy and there wont be any problems with installation.

Required software:

RoR client
Reshade 3
My Reshade preset

Feel free to upload your preset with example pictures, i`ll add them to topic to keep them in one place.

Are there dxgi.dll, dxgi.ini files and reshade-shaders folder in RoR directory? What happens when u press shift + f2?
Try install reshade as admin.

Great initiative telperien.
