How to update the reshade and sweetfx.
Requires newest version of this mod be pre-installed before the update.
Download and install the updated reshade. Install over top of this mod in the game folder for it to update the required files.
- Download and run the ReShade Setup.exe
- Click Select Game and Direct it to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Deus Ex The Fall\DeusEx_steam.exe
Select rendering API - click the OpenGL and tell it to overwrite the existing installation if asked.
Say Yes to overwrite.
Say No to installing reshade shaders.
Once finished close the installer bar.
Open the game folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Deus Ex The Fall\
- Delete the reshade.fx. This is the old one and is not needed as the effects will still be coming from the sweet.fx and sweetfx settings file once completed.
*You can leave the reshade.fx in and it will load with the sweetfx but it will alter the game saturation, check ingame and if you decide to leave it disabled just delete it as it is the old reshade.fx and is not required.
Although if kept, it does provide a second layer of the sweetfx settings over the initial layer, further increasing definition and the other effects. The original reshade.fx applies the sweetfx settings from the SweetFX_settings.txt, basically overlapping the same effects twice.
In order to correct the over-saturation issue, alter the HDR settings in the SweetFX_settings.txt, remember that any change is applied twice, one layer on top of the other, so settings are doubled, make changes at +/- .05 increments. Most bleed over & saturation comes from the radius setting under HDR whereas the other is game brightness.
Start The Game To setup ingame file.
Click the + next to the address bar in the upper right, it will popup a small bar asking for a name. Call it deus and press enter. The address bar should now list the newly created file and in the area below the Sweetfx [sweet.fx] (& SweetFX [Reshade.fx] if not deleted) should be listed and checked with it's toggle key listed. Change toggle if you like. Once finished close reshade.
*If you choose to disable the reshade.fx, you can delete it from the game folder as it is from the older reshade and is not required for the sweetfx to work.
The original reshade.fx applies the sweetfx settings from the sweetfx_settings file, basically overlapping the same effects twice.
