Straight Up Enhancer - Simulated HDR

Preset for Battlefield V
Created by AssassinsDecree
Added Sept. 9, 2018
Updated 10 Nov 00:38 CET
Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
**Works brilliantly in the full game. I selected the trial.exe since I'm on the 10-hour trial currently. Cheers. *To see the differences better, please view the pics in fullscreen mode by clicking the picture again after opening a picture initially.
DESCRIPTION & FEATURES A nice, lightweight enhancer for the game with all added effects on hotkeys. This ReShade preset enhances colors on an individual basis, using the Lightroom shader, so you won't find any ugly blanket color saturation that looks ugly and distorted on some colors while looking good on others. Additionally, I've made individual adjustments to shadows, highlights, exposure, and contrast, with a bit of sharpness in the end to give you the effect of "wiping off your glasses" and seeing the game in a pseudo HDR. Hope you like it! Cheers, Merc
INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS 1. Download the latest version of the ReShade framework from ReShade.me (3.4.1 at the time of creating this). 2. Run the .exe, chose your Battlefield V .exe, called "bfvob.exe", which is found in this subfolder path: "... Origin Games\Battlefield V Open Beta" Now choose the DirectX 10+ version when it asks which API to use. 3. Select yes when it ask if you want to download a collection of effects. Click "uncheck all" (you'll be using the ones in my dropbox folder instead). 4. Download my zip file, "Merc's BFV Beta ReShade" from the dropbox link below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fwnq39asluzv6qx/Merc%27s%20BFV%20Beta%20ReShade.7z?dl=0 5. Open the zip folder and place the reshade-shaders folder in your Battlefield V Open Beta folder, where you found your game's .exe "... Origin Games\Battlefield V Open Beta" folder. 6. Download the Straight Up Enhancer preset itself from the link on this page by clicking the "download" button at the bottom of this page you're on now. 7. Rename the preset file "anythingyouwant.ini" with the only important part of step 8 being that you change the file extension from ".txt" to ".ini". 8. Put the preset file in the same "Battlefield V Open Beta" folder we've been working in so far where the game's .exe is and where the reshade-shaders folder, dxgi.dll, and reshade.ini should all now be. 9. Rename your ReShade "dxgi.dll" file to "d3d11.dll" (stops the game from crashing to desktop on launch for me, though this step is randomly unnecessary for some people. 9. Run your game and open the ReShade menu with Shift+F2 and open click the little arrow at the top of the reshade menu to open the drop-down menu. Select the preset.ini file you named whatever you wanted in step 7. 10. Profit?
HOTKEYS Letterbox (black bars) 0 on numberpad Sharpening - 5 on the numberpad Color and lighting changes (Lightroom) - 4 on the numberpad
UNINSTALLING 1. Delete the reshade-shaders folder, d3d11.dll (or dxgi.dll if you didn't rename it), and reshade.ini from your game folder. That's it.
Performance and Other Stuff Enjoy, leave comments below if you're having trouble installing. You may notice a slight decrease in performance, but it should be almost identical to what FPS you were getting before without ReShade installed. I may add bloom and lens dirt later along with other cinematic effects

Awesome news - I look forward to seeing your next effects, agree with your reasoning entirely!

Thanks so much! I plan to replace a few of the game's effects over time. I don't particularly love DICE's implementation of film grain (not noticeable enough, so why bother including it at all), and I simply disagree with their implementation of chromatic aberration... also think their lens aberration could be a touch stronger. Perhaps I'll do my own vignette too. We'll see.

Great preset, thanks - will check back for those updates, should you do them :)

ReShade framework doesn't support directx 12 yet. Just make sure you have it off in the game's options menu.
