A more vivid and sharper Experience
Greetings! I created this preset since the basic color palette of FFXV seems rather dull and bland to me and to reduce the games blur introtuced through TAA. The preset is meant to be atmospheric, adding more vivid colors and a cleaner image to highlighten the true beauty of the game! Disclaimer: To properly activate it the first time you have to run the Game in Borderless Window Mode or Alt+Tab once to activate and configure the Reshade GUI. [Instalation Note]: 1. Go to https://reshade.me/ 2. Download the installer 3. Install by selecting the game's executable from the folder where the game is installed 4. Of the shaders you are given to choose to download, choose all, since every Reshade use different Shaders. 5. Open the game and press Shift+F2, do the tutorial and create (Push the "+" button) a preset called "ffxv_s" or whatever you please. 6. Go to "game".exe folder and open "ffxv_s".ini 7. Copy my preset from here (Press Show Settings) and paste in "ffxv_s".ini 8. Once it's enabled make sure to check "Performance" Mode in the Settings so you are not loading all settings everytime you start/tab in, but instead just the selected few from my Preset. [Instalation Note for those with Special K]: Optional: Use my Video Tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXSfpL9pa04 Keep in mind, English is not my mothertongue so I have an accent and I slip up here and there but I think everything should be understandable. 1.
