Preset for Mafia III
Created by BaSe

Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
Effects: - Clarity - Curves - Deband (subtle) - FXAA - HighPassSharp - Levels - LumaSharpen - Tonemap - Vibrance What does it do? Removes the yellowish, brown tint and the absurd amount of blur. What do I get? A "clean", much sharper and smoother looking game. No need for fancy cinema effects or oversaturated colors...it's New Bordeaux not Hollywood. Performance hit? ~ 10 FPS worst case @ 1920x1080 INSTRUCTIONS: You need to Download the official ReShade Setup tool (3.63Mb) from here: https://reshade.me/ or here: https://www.mediafire.com/?36mdmdtrk57mmv2 (VirusTotalScan 1/55 is false positive) https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/557e5df9b902d7c2276c0843f6dbe4495d4fa1c2ff47ff68df99cbd3b3730fb0/analysis/1479755050/ 1. Start the setup tool, click "select game" and go to your Mafia 3 game directory. 2. Click on the Mafia3.exe Then click in the circle from the setup tool and choose: Direct3D 10+ 3. Click "Yes" for downloading the shader effects. (7.50Mb) If prompted let it overwrite. 4. First click "Uncheck All" then check the following 9 boxes and click OK: Clarity Curves Deband FXAA HighPassSharp Levels LumaSharpen Tonemap Vibrance 5. Now go in-game and press Shift+F2 to see if ReShade is working. (If it doesn't go to step 2 again.) 6. Start the ReShade tutorial and follow it through for the basic settings and the .ini file 7. Now go to your game directory where the games executables are and find your .ini file. (Not the dxgi.ini.) 8. Open your .ini file with a text editor and delete everything inside. 9. Copy the content from the settings tab and paste it into your ini.file. 10. Save and close the .ini file. Go in-game and click reload in the ReShade overlay and toggle the effects with the key you assigned in the tutorial. That's it.

Freaking fantastic. Amazing preset.

Hi this works for a while but then I get a sudden FPS drop to around 20fps which makes the game unplayable.. it also can happen when switching to MAP or using the SENSE mode. But alt-tabbing out of the game and back in fixes it for a short time until it happens again. This suggests a memory leak to me.. but only does it when the reshade is active.

Ah nevermind...I did something very wrong with my preset.

Follow the new instructions.
That should work.

Sorry for the trouble!

Sounds like the .ini file doesn't load correct.

You can try to rename the dxgi.dll and dxgi.ini to d3d11.dll and d3d11.ini...sometimes that does the trick for some issues.

On my system everything is working fine with the latest update.
I'm sorry.

Nice preset, but unfortunately, is not working here with the last update of the game.
Reshade menu in-game works fine, i try to change de on/off key, try to rename the ini file but when i press the key just nothing happens...
