I have been using Reshade with various games for some time.  It works wonders with most games.

 

ReShade is a generic post-processing injector for games and video software developed by crosire. Imagine your favorite game with ambient occlusion, real depth of field effects, color correction and more ... ReShade exposes an automated and generic way to access both frame color and depth information (latter is automatically disabled during multiplayer to prevent exploitation) and all the tools to make it happen.

 

Recently AMD developed a Contrast and Sharpness segment as part of their drivers for the new RX5700.  Some modders have been able to incorporate this into ReShade and it makes a big difference in the game graphics for me.  Thought I would share it here...

 

First you must install ReShade.  Go to the web site download and install it.  Instructions are on the site and its simple. 

After installation, copy the CAS.fx file in the attached zip file into the reshade-shaders/shaders directory and start the game.

What the heck for, does absolutely nothing to give an advantage.  just improves graphic quality...

My understanding was that to the anti-cheat code that WG runs, it was causing a false-positive.

Does anyone have some screenshots to share? I'm interested in the difference this mod makes with WoWP.

 

 

Cheers!

I thought about posting some, but its a subtle change, but very noticeable to the eye.  The major difference on my PC is the contrast, it automatically adjusts contrast and sharpness, balancing out contrast to help with sharpness. That is if you engage the AMD CAS, which is its main purpose. It really pops when I use one of my custom metallic skins.  I'll try to get a screenshot of difference after the event..

 

My system is probably only mid to low range... AMD 6100 CPU, with Nividia 1050 TI video (50-60 FPS in game) 

 

Its easy to install and uninstall if you want to give it a test...

I like techy things so I thought I would give this a try for grins.  

 

Completely borked the game.  Will not start.  Uninstalled Reshade, and still game is borked.  Ran check and repair, still borked.   

 

Proceed with caution.  Be sure to set up a restore point before doing this if you want to try it.    

 

Update:  I found these uninstall instructions and followed the manual uninstall directions to find the offending .ini and .dll files and deleted them, all is good now.  https://reshade.me/forum/troubleshooting/5227-easy-troubleshooting-never-deal-troubles-again

the borg or bork?

this is my favorite borg...

the 8 pound 6 ounce fist pawing in the air Borg


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

After some experimentation, I thought I would add to this post.  Here are my settings for ReShade on WoWP/WoT

 

The first three are very good and the last three make slight differences.  I was going for clarity, sharpness, and lighting. I did not use any for color enhancement.

Here are some comparison shots.  In hangar and in battle.

And remember these shots are taken using my mods, so it may look somewhat different than yours

 

Enjoy!

I know this isn't new but thx for the comparison picture, for the life of me I couldn't tell the difference on the first one (most likely because of my eyes, they are not as good as once was)
