Chill's Far Cry 3 Reshade v1.0

Preset for Far Cry 3

Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
Summary Far Cry 3 and the series as a whole have always pushed the boundaries for graphics. Time is starting to age this game slowly but surely, so this is my attempt at a "lift". As with most of my Reshades, I focus on keeping the original experience as closely as possible...and try to avoid just being another cinematic=contrast, realism=gamma. This was tested at 4K resolution. Important Note 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! https://sfx.thelazy.net/users/u/iChillum/ Required Shaders Note that the instructions provide guidance on downloading these shaders. Downloading only the necessary shaders will help guarantee additional game performance. -Ambient Light -ChromaticAberration -ColorMatrix -Curves -FakeHDR -LumaSharpen -Vibrance Installation 1. Download the ReShade installer from https://reshade.me and run it. 2.Select farcry3_d3d11.exe (\%SteamDirectory%\steamapps\common\Far Cry 3\bin) and click on the graphics API Direct3D 10+ (This was tested with DirectX 11 - If using DirectX 9, select "farcry3.exe" instead in the same directory, and choose "Direct3D 9" for this step). 3.Confirm the installation of standard shaders when the installer's pop-up message opens, and install the following shaders: AmbientLight,CA,ColorMatrix,Curves,HDR,LumaSharpen,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 Far Cry 3; 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. I also recommend configuring separate keybinds for Reshade under the Settings tab seeing as Far Cry uses F2 in-game. I use "Home" for Reshade Menu, "End" for on/off. Performance 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. My PC Hardware: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/iChillum/saved/#view=dkYLD3 ~ CPU is overclocked to 4.8GHz Turbo speed, and CPU cores are unparked. Release Notes 1.0 - Nov. 27, 2017 Initial release
