Cinematic War Stories
is a ReShade 3.0 preset for Battlefield 1 that aims to bring a filmic look to the latest installment in the Battlefield franchise. This preset was balanced for all the multiplayer maps, as well as the thrilling singleplayer campaign sequences. The optional depth of field looks great and personally reminds me of a modded Skyrim. This preset will be updated in the near future.
All screenshots were taken using the Depth of Field version. Multiplayer doesn't support DoF, only the campaign.
This preset doesn't work properly with the Origin Trial version.
It only works with the FULL version of the game and you must have the Origin in-game overlay disabled.
First, download "Cinematic War Stories Preset v1.0
" from the bottom of this page.
Next, download ReShade 3.0 from here: http://reshade.me/#download
Install it to the Battlefield 1 game directory and select "Direct3D 10+" as the library.
Next, install the "reshade-shaders" folder that it asks you to.
Select from the Normal or DoF version of Cinematic War Stories.
Copy all the files and folders as necessary, including the "reshade-shaders" folder.
Paste everything to your main Battlefield 1 game directory.
Replace any files and folders it asks.
Open dxgi.ini and make sure the FILE PATH for your BF1 Game Directory is correct.
The default hard drive path uses C:/
If you use a completely different hard drive path for Battlefield 1, then replace all values with C:/.
Finally, launch Battlefield 1 and enjoy your new visuals!
You can press the Scroll-Lock key on your keyboard to open up ReShade 3.0 and edit the preset. You can also turn it off by switching to the preset labeled "PRESET OFF" from the dropdown menu. This is an easy way to compare and contrast the differences between BF1 Vanilla and BF1 Cinematic War Stories Preset.
Screenshots can be taken with the Print-Screen button on your keyboard.
They will be saved to your Battlefield 1 game directory.
