SWTOR Clarity & Contrast

Created by Jakkar

Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
Updated preset 26th May 2017: +Lowered the strength of the sharpening filter, but tightened the effect. +In some areas of the game, the "Clarity" effect causes the visuals to appear overblown. This effect is now disabled by default in the preset, you can enable it from the ReShade menu. A Reshade preset for Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO to enhance clarity and contrast. This preset adds Clarity, Levels, FXAA/SMAA & LumaSharpen. ***Installation*** Go to https://reshade.me/, download and install the latest ReShade package into your SWTOR executable folder. Typically, this should be your /swtor/retailclient folder. Once you've installed Reshade, find the settings .ini file and replace all of the text with the values from my settings file below. ***Configuration*** The in-game AA is not effective at dealing with the many jaggies in the game. I've attempted to fix this somewhat by adding a low power FXAA on top of it. However, If you're using the in-game AA at "Medium" setting, the game will look VERY blurry, in which case you'll need to turn off FXAA. You can also try increasing the strength of LumaSharpen to cut through some of the blur. Alternatively, if you want AA without the massive FPS loss, you can disable the in-game AA completely and enable Reshade SMAA. This is my preferred method. I've disabled the in-game AA and set SMAA to hit as many jaggies as possible. This eats up ~5–10 frames on my GTX 1070. Your mileage may vary. Different areas in the game have widely different post-processing applied. If the game looks "overblown" in some areas, try adjusting the strength values of the Clarity and Levels effects. *NOTE THAT YOUR IN-GAME UI/HUD WILL ALSO BE SUBJECT TO RESHADE EFFECTS*

Yeah, the filename is indeed confusing. Unfortunately, I don't have control over it as it is automatically generated. =(

Good to see you enjoy this little tweak. =)

Apologies, just figured out it was not a SweetFX setting file, the file name was confusing. Reshade 3.0 loads the effect fine.

preset is throwing a syntax error for me, using reshade 2.0.3 + sweetfx 2.0
