Erik's True Vibrant & Colorful Reshade

Preset for Battlefield 3

Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
Effects used: Clarity.fx, Colourfulness.fx, FilmicAnamorphSharpen.fx, Technicolor2.fx, Vibrance.fx Reshade Version: 3.4.0 A personal Reshade preset carefully calibrated to bring out the game's colors without however making it look over-saturated or too bright. With this preset I believe I achieved a solid balance between looks and gameplay. One could even argue that the game is easier with this preset since shadows are a bit lighter and enemies no longer disappear at every spot of black and gray in the game. However, this preset while not using any special effects such as extreme bloom,SMAA or other unnecessary shaders, it does hit performance. For me personally there was roughly 10 to 15FPS decrease. So make sure that you can run the vanilla game at 75-85FPS before using this reshade if you want to always stay above 60FPS. This reshade was tested on a stock I5-4690K (3,5Ghz) and an R9 290 (4GB) running on the absolute highest settings at 1920x1080 resolution. If your system is equal or stronger to mine, then this preset will run perfectly fine and you will not notice in drops in performance. Installation: - Download and install Reshade 3 (This specific preset was created with version 3.4.0, though I expect it will be compatible with future versions too. I will try to regularly update it if it doesn't work with any future releases) - Take the downloaded preset and turn it into an .ini file. (For example: Simply rename Reshade_Settings.txt into Reshade_Settings.ini) - Now paste the .ini file in your Battlefield 3 directory (\Origin Games\Battlefield 3) - Launch the game and load the preset using the in-game Reshade menu (Shift + F2) - On the Reshade's Settings tab change Usage mode to 'Performance' for a slight FPS boost - Done, enjoy!

The vanilla game is far from looking realistic. Real life has vibrant colors. BF3 on the other hand is practically a gray mess. My preset does an excellent job at returning the colors back to the game.

Oversaturrated. This game called realistic for a reason. And one of this reasons realistic less saturrated colors. Now its looks like cartoon.
