Toukiden 2, the claw..., say it in reverence.
Probably inspired by the likes of devil may cry 4, or an
other earlier game with a similar mechanic, plays a central
role in the gameplay and, as much of the game, often leaves
you grasping air.

Don't get me wrong this is quite a intriguing game but much
like the cuisine it offers it is an acquired taste.

The visual tweaks are listed below how ever a word of caution
if you have not played this game it might be wise to disable
the hud tweaks, at least initially, please see 'further tweaking'.

update 06/10/2020
- altered reshade tonemap preserves contrast a bit better
- no 3dmigoto tweaks were altered

3dmigoto shader tweaks:
- remove bloom landscape mid region
- remove bloom daytime
- reduce dark shadows on objects and high whitepoint plus remove shadow flicker caused by sunbeams
- rebalance contrast dynamic sky layer moving clouds, etc
- remove fxaa code fxaa inactive
- increase saturation and reduce distance blurring
- correct tonemapping, reduce overbright transistion safe zone etc
- reduce length lightshaft
- reduce fog on characters specificaly oni enemy
- reduce darkness avatar and npcs
- reduce fog on mountains, increase ambient occlusion
- reduce atmospheric scattering which causes color loss
- remove hud healthbar companions
- reduce glowing rock overlay
- modify specular structures, buildings and reduce white clipping floor tiles
- hide floating names above character but als removes claw targeting
and other gui gamplay prompts

The reshade shaders, are customized, re-balance the brightness and
a slight yellow tinge reduction, smaa (in game AA is disabled by a shaderfix)
plus a lumasharpen shader which gives the textures a bit more
definition.

An option B of this package contains *only* shaderfixes
please use this version if you do not like the reshade tweaks.

Note(s):
The reshade package has customized shaders it is not advisable to mix and match.
