Cinematic Excellence (Bleak Version)

Preset for Mad Max
Created by AssassinsDecree
Added June 29, 2017
Updated 23 Jul 17:58 CEST
Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
Overall enhancer! Also provides a more cinematic, grim and somber atmosphere. Defogs the image space, making distant details much more visible and letting all details pop. Recommended to turn on in-game video mode, hud on and depth of field with blur slider about a quarter full and the bottom bar that just reads depth of field maxed oit to push the DoF into the distance. Try decreasing the FOV a little too to bring you closer to the action. -- REGULAR VERSION: https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/7434/ -- Video preview: https://youtu.be/vWfQAQ0z1b0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmpo-j0eS4&t=248s Please like, comment and sub for more entertaining commentaries and ReShades. CONTROLS Optional features and the controls to toggle them: Film grain - "3" on numberpad Sharpness - "5" on numberpad Black bars - "0" numberpad Bloom - "6" on numberpad (off by default) !!!IMPORTANT For me the game crashes if I use any form of ReShade or SweetFx in fullscreen mode. So you must enable borderless window mode to use ReShade if yours also crashes when trying to load the game with Reshade enabled. IMPORTANT END!!! INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Download the latest version of ReShade 3.0+ from here: https://reshade.me/ Run the .exe that you just downloaded. Probably best to copy it to your desktop or someone first outside your downloads folder. Follow the steps it tells you and select "DirectX 10+" selecting yes everything it asks. Download my preset by hitting the button below and rename the file to "anythingyouwant.ini". The most important part is changing the ".txt" file to ."ini." Put the file in your game's "bin" folder where "MadMax.exe" is located. Run your game, don't touch anything while reshade loads its effects. Open ReShade menu with "shift+f2" and use the drop down menu to select the .ini file you just put in your bin folder. Keep hitting the continue button until the boxes turn from red to grey/clear. Done. Profit! Toggle the effects with scroll-lock, by default. Use the ReShade's "settings" menu to change the controls for opening the reshade menu, toggling the entire preset on and off and setting up screenshots.

Hey shad, that's really nice of you to come back! Really glad my reshade held up through the whole game! I'll probably do another preset for this game some months down the road. I've learned so much since i released these two reshades.
