  1. Alright I updated the main post with the latest version of ReShade and 2 brand new presets. The old post is still available in spoiler tags just in case anybody prefers the old stuff and needs the info.
  2. Got a few more screenshots. Hopefully this shader releases free to the public soon.
  3. You probably have an incorrect depth buffer setting in the global pre-processor settings. Check and make sure: RESHADE_DEPTH_LINEARIZATION_FAR_PLANE = 1000 RESHADE_DEPTH_INPUT_IS_UPSIDE_DOWN = 0 RESHADE_DEPTH_INPUT_IS_REVERSED = 0 RESHADE_DEPTH_INPUT_IS_LOGARITHMIC = 0 Also, I just wanna show off some screenshots of the new preset I'm working on. I updated to the latest version of reshade (should be an easier install process) and am making use of some new shaders, one of which is an alpha release for "ray traced" global illumination (only in screen space though, so keep expectations tempered). I've tweaked colors and bloom as well, I think it's turning out quite good. That said, I can't upload that shader and preset because the global illumination shader isn't public yet. Once it is, I'll make sure to post it here! If you guys want an updated version of the mod minus the GI shader though, lemme know and I'll upload that. 2.0.1 "Pretty" preset: New work in progress:
  4. I "finalized" the preset and reduced the contrast. It's in the OP. I took it in a slightly different direction, what I was doing only looked good in a few areas.
  5. So I was playing around with ReShade and made a new preset while going for something "cinematic" and dumb. Lens flare, film grain, depth of field, some very muted tonemapping (a primarily teal look to capture a sci fi feel), chromatic aberration, etc. It's basically unplayable because of what it does to the UI and, like I said, it's really dumb, but here are some screenshots. If anybody wants me to package it and post it, let me know, but I'm not anticipating any demand for it. Still though, it looks kinda neat, so maybe somebody wants it for screenshots or something. It wouldn't involve uninstalling the other preset, it would be easily swappable in-game. Screenshot 1 Screenshot 2
  6. Zipped the source up and uploaded it: https://mega.nz/#!W5JyAC4J!JrUVrhfyD90zOT8YaA8saoS60ls6sURkcw8apgZWvV0
  7. I didn't fork it, I just cloned it. The only change I made was commenting out a couple lines of code, nothing was added.
  8. No problem, hope you can figure out what's causing your issue. You should still make one if you aren't happy with mine, more choices are good! I set out to make something different from the first one and it turned out more or less the same lol.
  9. I've got it working for the client on that server as well. Just so you know why it is the way it is, for PSOBB you need d3d8.dll and d3d9.dll. ReShade doesn't support dx8, which is what PSO uses. However, there's a dx8 to dx9 converter (the d3d8.dll) that will allow reshade to work. d3d9.dll is ReShade itself. In the zip file I uploaded, all the files needed are included. There's some extra steps involved in getting my version working compared to the normal ReShade 3.0+ installer, so if you glossed over it due to familiarity, try reading the steps again. I went through the installation steps I laid out on a fresh install on PSOBB to make sure I didn't miss anything, so I'm not sure what else the problem could be.
  10. Okay so for some reason the developer of ReShade decided he wanted to force everyone to use 3.0. That's annoying. Oh well, I included the DLL in the presets now (and moved them to mega). The only reason I didn't include them before was because he asked people not to do it. Fairly annoying that he did that. Anyway, the guide is updated to reflect the changes. Let me know if anything goes wrong.
  11. I think that bloom shader is based on a Gaussian function, so you aren't wrong lol. The bloom shouldn't be hurting performance, it isn't an intensive effect. If anything, it's ambient occlusion or RBM.
  12. Odds are it's the ambient occlusion causing the issue. These aren't optimized effects, they are written in a way to work with any game that reshade can get the necessary information for. Next time it happens, try toggling off just ambient occlusion (caps lock). As stated before, I'm using a gtx 1070, performance anomalies will probably go unnoticed by me since they won't affect me at all in this game. If it didn't change, you may have done something wrong. I just double checked and I uploaded the correct file. You put it in the ReShade folder in your PSO directory and told it to overwrite the file, correct? If you do see a difference and it didn't fix the problem, could you take a screenshot showing a specific area? I used a filter that literally reduced the teal-ish color lol. It's also possible that you are referring to the bloom shader I used. Just to be sure, go into the GemFX.cfg file and try disabling USE_BLOOM. Note that you CAN make these changes while playing the game.
  13. Okay. If you still have issues, the RBM setting is a major performance hog, probably more than the ambient occlusion. SMAA is a small hit, but you don't miss out on much at all by disabling it.
  14. You can also try going into the McFX.cfg file in notepad and disabling RBM (change "USE_RBM 1" to "USE_RBM 0"), as well as going into SweetFX.cfg and disabling SMAA (same instructions, just with SMAA). That'll disable reflections and anti aliasing. Any other shaders will require me to rework the entire tone of the mod
  15. If you haven't messed with anything in your driver's control panel, you don't have anything to worry about. Even though AMDs APUs are good for what they are, they aren't gonna be able to run the higher end version. It utilizes half of my gtx 1070 in the lobby (a good bit less in other areas), so you need something that can push half the performance of a Titan X for no slowdown. The ambient occlusion has a major performance hit, so try using the version that has it disabled. It'll still look pretty good. Try tweaking the HDR setting (lower the power from 1.4 to 1.3/1.2). I'm using a 120 hz monitor, and like most of those monitors, the color reproduction and contrast is absolutely terrible, so it's definitely possible it doesn't look great for you.
  16. I removed the blue tint. I don't know if it is the desired result, but it does look nice. I didn't really test this out in a lot of areas, so it's possible some areas may look funky. Download this file and extract it to the ReShade folder. As for the toggle key, I don't know which key you want, so I'll tell you how to do it. In the reshade folder, open up the file called Common.cfg in notepad. Look for RFX_ToggleKey. Then, look here to find the virtual key code for the key you'd like. Copy the hexadecimal value for the corresponding key and replace the text "VK_SCROLL" with it. Save and exit. That key should now work as a toggle for the effects. EDIT: I ran around in some more areas and I think I prefer the tint removal, so thank you for suggesting it!
  17. I'm happy you like it so much. Yes you can change the toggle key to something else. I can't remember which config file has it off the top of my head, so I'll find that out for you tomorrow. I'll also try to remove some blue tint, but it's possible it won't have the desired result in all areas. We'll see though.
  18. Well it's hard to do much more than slap post processing effects on the game. I can't even find an HD texture mod for the game (if you know of one, please share lol). The game isn't very popular anymore of course, so there probably aren't a lot of presets people have made. I remember finding some ENB mods a while back, but I thought they looked bad. If you had an interest, you could play around with the shaders and customize it to look pretty much any way you want. Short answer: Not really, but it's not hard to customize ReShade.
  19. For those that are interested, I made the guide for my reshade profile. And here's another screenshot using it
  20. What Is This? This specifically is a modified ReShade .dll (built on September 29th) that can keep depth buffer access in multiplayer games, along with a couple presets I made. As for what ReShade is generally, it's a post processing injector similar to ENB, except it works generically in just about any game. It can't modify textures or models or otherwise enhance the in-game effects/lighting, but it can add in depth-dependent effects like ambient occlusion or depth of field and otherwise do anything you could do to an image in photoshop. Why Would I Want It? Take a look at this gallery. If this preset doesn't interest you, this includes tons of shaders I didn't use, so you may want to play around with it yourself if that's your cup of tea. Alright, I'm Sold, Where's the Download? Here you go! But there's a catch! The Global Illumination shader used in the gallery photos labeled "x GI" is currently in beta and the developer does not want it publicly distributed. For now, if you want access to said shader, you'll need to support the developer on his Patreon, where it is in the $5 tier (I am in no way, shape, or form affiliated with the developer of this shader). Once the shader is finished in development, it will be available for free. As for why you might consider throwing him 5 bones, he's responsible for a ton of quality shaders for ReShade which are absolutely free, such as the great MXAO shader I've used as an alternative until the GI shader is available publicly. How Do I Install This Thing? Once you've downloaded the files, extract them to the root of your PSOBB install (where the PSOBB.exe is located). Boot up the game, and open the ReShade menu by pressing Shift + F1. At the top of that menu, there will be a selected preset. Ensure that the correct preset is selected (PSO+GI if you installed the GI shader, PSO+MXAO if you have not). As an added suggestion, go into the control panel for your video card and enable 16x Anisotropic Filtering for the game. Also, you cannot use MSAA or SSAA with this mod. It may simply make the depth effects not work, or it may crash at launch. How's Performance? These effects are extremely performance intensive as configured. At 3440x1440, this pushes my RTX 2080 to about 50-55% utilization. If you have a modern mid-range gaming PC and aren't running a 4k monitor this should run fine for you. I can't do a large range of performance testing, so if you have any performance problems please let me know what GPU you have, what resolution, and where you have problems. If anybody has issues on reasonable hardware, I can try to make a more performant preset. Optimization wasn't a concern for me given the age of this game and it having a 30 fps cap. Thanks for taking the time to look at this! I spent a lot of time tweaking this to my tastes and making sure it didn't look bad in a large variety of scenes. If you give it a download, let me know what you think, and if you make your own preset, I'd love to see some screenshots! Hope you all have a great day!
  21. That was a far faster response than expected lol. I've checked most areas in the game already to make sure it looks good, but I want to do some more testing/refining before sharing it with everyone here. I'll go ahead and share the couple downsides with reshade inherently. You can't use hardware AA if you want the ambient occlusion (reshade has SMAA though, so not the end of the world), and the ambient occlusion bleeds through alpha effects. PSO makes little use of them....except for CCA. I need to add a toggle for the ambient occlusion alone specifically for that area.
  22. I made a reshade profile for the game, here's what my episode 2 ship looks like (if anybody is interested in the settings, I can make a thread sharing it)
