With this Reshade, I wanted to warm and soften the game up without straying too much from the color design already in place.
Please note that I select shaders and their settings based on each individual
game I create a Reshade for. This takes time, and I hope my efforts show. It seems common for many creators to reuse the same Reshade across games regardless of art style, mood or setting.
Please feel free to take a moment to checkout my other Reshades if you have a moment!
Note that the instructions provide guidance on downloading these shaders. Downloading only the necessary shaders will help guarantee additional game performance.
1. Download Download the ReShade installer from https://reshade.me
and run it.
2.Select LANoire.exe (\%SteamDirectory%\steamapps\common\L.A.Noire) and click on the graphics API DirectX 10+ (This was tested with DirectX 11).
3.Confirm the installation of standard shaders when the installer's pop-up message opens, and install the following shaders: AmbientLight,ChromaticAberration,FakeHDR,FXAA,LumaSharpen,MagicBloom,Vibrance
4.Download this preset by hitting the button below, and rename the file to "YOUR_PRESET_NAME.ini". The most important part is changing the ".txt" file to ."ini."
5.Run LA Noire; be patient as the game can take longer to load all of the ReShade shaders.
6.Open ReShade menu with "Shift+F2" and use the drop down menu to select the .ini file you just put in your bin folder. Keep hitting the continue button until the boxes turn from red to grey/clear.
7.If you are happy with the settings, Click on the Settings tab.
8.Navigate to Usage Mode and change to Performance. This will ensure the best possible performance for low-end systems while running ReShade
Notes and Known Issues
~ Some cut scenes will be very bright and warm due to the scene lighting with the Reshade. It is suggested that from the Settings tab in Reshade that you configure an appropriate keybinding for toggling the reshade on/off in the event these cut scenes bother you too much. I will look to resolve this issue in future releases.
While I design and test all of my Reshades with performance in-mind, my hardware settings and resolutions may differ from yours. While mood is important, framerate should be the most important if you are a true gamer. Nothing will be "one size fits all", so play around and find the right compromise of performance and quality.
