Basic improvement FEAR 2

Created by chiculin

Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
Hi, I want to share here my basic FEAR 2 graphic improvement, nothing spectacular nor overdarkened, just a few tweaks to enjoy better looking image. Starting with quint sharp is always welcome to old titles with poor textures. DPX and lift gamma gain to correct the gamma and shadow/light level (not dark). Bloom provide a more interesting light sources effect. Effects, - Quint Sharp - DPX - Lift gamma gain - Chromatic aberration - Quint Bloom Disable ingame, - HDR. (if enabled, it will overexposed/burn white lights. Aside form that, all HDR games causes me eye fatigue) Install, Download and install reshade. Look for fear2.exe and install for dx9. Select Standard, sweetfx, quint and legacy libraries. Download the preset and rename to *.ini. Place the file at the game directory. I recommend to install the mouse fix from PCgamingwiki, FEAR2MouseFix_v0_3. To increase the game FOV, add a launch parameter on steam, +fovy:100 Best regards,

Glad you like it. I always try to get best results with less filters. No overbright, no overdark, tweaking filters ingame and adjusting them to fit every scene.

I uploaded one for FEAR3 and I can honestly say it´s awesome.
