Updated 13 Apr 22:06 CEST
Shader used: SweetFX 2.0
Preset description:
I reworked 'Shaders of Eternity' by user request to have less vibrant colors/DPX/Technicolor. This is a more color neutral version of my previous preset. Enjoy! =) - BLOOM - LUMASHARPEN - LEVELS - TECHNICOLOR - TECHNICOLOR2 - DPX - LIFTGAMMAGAIN - TONEMAP - VIBRANCE - CURVES - DITHER ////////////////V 1.1 Neutral Shaders of Eternity///////////////////// - Added Technicolor2 into the mix - Tweaked DPX/Technicolor/Technicolor2 Saturation to stay as true to the original vision of PoE as possible. - Reduced Bloom (it may need to be futzed with more) - I can't remember if was pre-release or update I futzed with Curves - Redid Lumasharpen to be better on the eyes //////////////////////V 1.2 Neutral Shaders of Eternity/////////////////// - Fixed lighting to not be broken when it's bright out. - Slight changes to Vibrance - Slight changes to Tonemap - Slight changes to various saturation effects ^ The first item on this list makes this an importantish update ^ //////////////////////////////V 1.3//////////////////////////// - Fixed red balance and saturation - Slight changes to lighting - Changed Green Technicolor1&2 to look closer to the original vision of the game - Other stuff I'm totally forgetting ////////////////////////////////////////V 1.4//////////////////////////////////// - Fixed Sharpening - other tone fixes - Magic coolified - pretty scenery - waiting for update 1.0.4 to see if when the game has all its Shaders compiling through DirectX11 properly (already on the update announcement by Obsidian) to see if there's anything else I can do with the game or if I need to update these shaders Common Issues/Questions Q: Is PoE a 32 bit or 64 bit game? A: PoE is a 32 bit game[/b Q: Which SweetFX DLL should I use? [b]A: Rename ReShade32.dll to OPENGL32.dll Q: Which version of SweetFX should I use? A:SweetFX 2.0 Preview 8 SweetFX 2.0 Preview 8 by CeeJay.dk | ReShade 0.16.00 by Crosire 26 Feb 12:43 CET Q: My 64bit system (especially Win 8.1 for some reason) is having issues with Reshade/SweetFX2.0, what's up? A: Download both the 32bit and 64bit version of DirectX. It's something with BETA Reshade I think. Q: These fumes are making me dizzy Mr. Simpsons? A: Yeah, they'll do that.

The best shader I've tested in this game. Great work!

This is an outstanding preset. Thanks for your time it's so much more vibrant now. Great colours.

The game is truly awesome.

I can't get this to work. I've put it in the root folder of PoE and renamed the sweetfx file in the sweetfx folder. I've tried installing it with reshade instead of manual installation but that does nothing. I selected the game through reshade and it only closes the menu. What am I doing wrong? I have windows 7

Thanks for the reply. I tried to google for a Directx 11 version but I couldn't find it. Mostly I'm just confused because I found some links to install Directx 11 but they don't specify for 32- or 64-bit. Plus, if I did find the Directx 32-bit and installed that, would it override my current 64-bit version and mess up my PC? Here's some of my specs if that helps: i5-4670k, GTX 970, Directx 11, and Windows 7 SP1 64-bit of course.

You need to download the 32-bit version of DirectX as well to get it working. =) I'm trying to find a link, but I can't remember where Microsoft stashes the offline installers. I'll keep looking though. (for sure you're missing a directx x86/32-bit driver)

Could someone please help with the installation? This is my first time using SweetFX. I followed the instructions step by step, but whenever I tried to run the game I kept getting an error message about a missing MSVCP110.DLL, which is actually not missing at all. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. I saw in the post the 64-bit system could have issues with SweetFX 2.0, but I'm not sure if that's why I can't run it or not?

Thanks for your help.

I have nothing to say but well done! Especially for your first time preset.

Great work!

Actually, you can just hit scrolllock and it disables and reenables sweetfx. It's how you make the preset pretty much. =)

Deleting the OpenGL32.dll did the trick! Thanks!!!! I wish it was as simple as pressing a button in game to switch between Sweetfx being on and off. That would be ideal and much easier to switch back and forth.

Hmmmm, try clearing your registry.

Deleting the SweetFX folder and the OpenGL32.dll file should guarantee it stops working. I'll check forums.

How do you uninstall? I've deleted all files I could find but when I start up the game this is always on the screen, "Reshade 0.17.1.814 crosfire loading effect...no effect found".

I truly like the effects you've done here but for some odd reason I like the graphics/colors as they were at launch.

Any ideas would be great! I guess I could always delete the game then re-install?

Can someone please explain to me how to place this in the correct area on Steam? I have the Config downloaded and the latest version of SweetFX but not the ReShade. So far I just copy this and past it onto the pillarsofeternity.exe but that does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. LOVE your work ;)

i fixed it turns out the launch command i had set for the game was causing the odd red shade when using ReShade (-force-opengl)

oh sorry.... yes using the latest 1.3 settings... i tried 1.2 to see if that was the same its also causing a strong red hue tho

no i have not got the latest patch yet and it seems really red on the whole screen but more dominant at the bottom

Hmmm, red should be toned down but I definitely brought it out more than in the original. Can you give me a location where the red is super noticeable? I ask only because I've been playing for awhile and haven't noticed any crazy imbalance.

Do you have the latest iteration 1.3?

Woo! Finally got those colors right lol. I notice the sharpening too, I'll probably get OCD and fix it at some point this weekend. I should also probably put up better pics too, haha. Thanks for the awesome feedback DIXI!

3 Apr 23:16 CEST

Yup, version 1.3 is basically perfect. For me atleast.

You did a great job on the lightning. Armors are not shiny anymore. Good job!

The only thing I'd fix now would be the sharpening. There's a tiny tiny bit sharpening going on that I can see personally.

But really dude, other than that it's perfect. Colors and lighning are perfectly balanced imo.

Sticking to that one :)!

Looks great! I like how you don't tint the colors too much. I took a crack at my first preset and can now appreciate how hard and time consuming it is to dial one of these in. I have a lot of time left in correcting the color tinting and overall brightness, but I might just play the game for a bit too :-).

No worries DIXI! I'm a big believer that friendly criticism and a friendly eye can help artists make far superior works, and you've been giving good advice! I'm just stoked I can do something so appreciated by the same crowd who were busy playing Baulder's Gate and Fallout2 with me as a kid, it just has good feels! I'm happy I can improve anyone's experience playing the game. I'm working on the shine (I notice it most on the plate helms or whatever have the really close mesh). So far I lose the quality of AA overall just to get a helmet, but I'ma keep trying. I want to work on making spells more magicy like BG2. =D

Try running the game as an admin then. If you can't get reshade to work, you will never be able to use a preset for this game, because it's an Opengl game.

Btw, it is still a little tiny tiny bit shiny (or bright) imo refusedzero. Woke up today and I was able to see what could be improved :).

@Dusty777 - D/L this http://www.mediafire.com/download/d664gz8c16a9u8z/ReShade+0.16.0+Public+Beta+with+SweetFX+2.0+Beta+8.7z

Extract this into the root game folder.

Then rename and replace the SweetFX_settings.txt(in the SweetFX folder) with mine.

Double click Reshade Setup.exe and point it at PillarsofEternity.exe and hit the button.

Should work then. =)

Dusty777
31 Mar 10:47 CEST

Yes,i think i am.
Can you maybe upload on mega the whole thing
with sweetfx and reshade so i just extract everything in the root of the game.
Just to rule this out.
But i think i have everything setup correctly otherwise i wouldn't be able to see changes on lower res.

DIXI
31 Mar 09:29 CEST

Are you using Reshade Dusty? You need the Reshade program in order to make this preset work.

Dusty777
31 Mar 07:38 CEST

Is anybody know why for me this and any other sweetfx preset works only when
pillars is set to resolution lower than desktop resolution?
Now desktop is set to 1400*1050 and
it works on resolutions smaller than that.
But if i change desktop to 1600*1200 than 1400*1050 and of course smaller works.

Yup. Version 1.2 is way better than it was for me!

You should also look on the lightning imo. When it comes to dark areas like dungeons or night time, your preset is perfect.

BUT! I just got to Gilded Vale on day time and yeah, not ideal. Way too bright. Try it yourself and see what I mean. It's hard to explained.

Keep up the good work otherwise!

Thank you DIXI! I'll keep the text sharpening in mind when updating the settings.txt next (iduno what I'll be able to get away with, but I agree with you tho).

30 Mar 21:33 CEST

Yes, yes, yes! This is the best so far!

I had the same issue with your first preset "Sharders of Eternity". It was too vibrant. Now it is perfect!

I'd say the writing still looks a tiny bit too "sharpened" imo. Know what I mean? BUT, if it changes the colors too drastically, don't change anything :).

Best one atm!
