Current Version (Beta) 1.07 Last Updated - January 22, 2015 Introduction This project implements tweaks the tone-mapping, adds effects such as SSAO, Depth of Field, Godrays, Bloom, sharpness, etc via Reshade by Crosire. Version History v1.07 - Added Reshade 0.13.1 & MasterEffect ReBorn 1.0.340 - Removed SSAO, added Gaussian Anamflare. Re-organized Effects in alphabetical order, sorted by FPS Hit / Performance v1.04 - Reduced darkening from SSAO, minor changes. v1.03 - Initial Release Requirements Your GPU must support OpenGL 4.3. Also ensure you have the latest drivers: Latest Nvidia Driver // GTX 400 series or higher // Drivers older than 347.09 will NOT work due to opengl bug - (May be resolved as of Jan 22, 2015, if you wish to use older driver) Latest AMD Driver // Radeon HD 5xxx or higher Installation Step 1 Download v1.07, extract the contents to the same folder as swkotor2.exe Step 2 Run the game > If everything worked, you should first get a prompt for reshade (Message Box) > Then in-game you will see text in the top left, also as you make edits in real-time > Press Scroll Lock key to disable/enable effects in-game Editing Effects In-Game Edit ReShade.fx to edit my presets in Notepad or Notepad++ > You can adjust effects in real time. I recommend running the game in Windowed Mode to save time. To run TSL in windowed mode, make sure your swkotor2.ini has the following codes added: [Display Options] FullScreen=0 [Graphics Options] AllowWindowedMode=1 FullScreen=0 > When in game, press ALT-Enter to activate Windowed Mode.

Old Screenshots: Image1 / Image2 / Image3 / Image4 / Image5 / Image6 / Image7 / Image8 / Image9 Image10 / Image11 / Image12 FAQ It's too dark / bright in game? > Adjust your brightness in-game to taste, I am using this monitor. Can I use FRAPS, MSI On-Screen-Display / Afterburner? > Fraps works and will record video/screenshots with effects enabled, wasn't successful using MSI On-Screen-Display / Afterburner. How much of a performance hit? > Open the Reshade.fx - I have sorted the effects under categories with the supposed FPS Hit, I am using a GTX 970 so your results may vary. How to apply antialiasing like in your screenshots? > Use this guide if Nvidia GPU How to enable/disable effects / toggle key? > Hit "Scroll Lock" key, right above your Home key. Can I take screenshots? > Either user FRAPS, or hit the "Prt Scr" key when in-game. This will save a screenshot in your kotor directory (same as executable). It will generate a normal screenshot (vanilla, no effects), as well as with effects. This way you can make easy comparisons. What can we look forward to in the future? > Hopefully a good integration of Depth of Field. All that i tested, I still had hud, menu, chat being blurred, so it wasn't worth it for gameplay purposes. As Crosire's Reshade comes out of beta and is more stable, an official release here, with 2-3 different presets. Hopefully more shaders like SMAA implemented too. This way we will have other options for antialiasing with same or less overhead. I'm still trying to find the best balance of black/white levels, and tone-mapping, please share your screenshots here so we can compare
Guide Updated 10/26/14 This guide requires Nvidia Inspector Currently there are no options to get ENB, SweetFX, etc working in Kotor/Kotor2. These options will give you the highest quality for Antialiasing, Texture Filtering, Screen-Tear, and input delay. 1) Launch Nvidia Inspector, and open "Driver (256+) Profile Settings. 2) Click the drop-down arrow by the Home Icon. Search and Click the Profile for "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2" Use my settings below as reference, or import my profile. Make sure to apply changes! Antialiasing - Mode - Override any application setting Antialiasing - 8xQ (8x Multisampling) // Or set to 4x Antialiasing - Transparency Supersampling (8x Sparse Grid Supersampling) // Or set to 4x Anisotropic Filtering Mode - User-defined / Off Anisotropic Filtering Setting - 16x Texture Filtering - LOD Bias (OGL) - 0 // Values between 0 and -0.250 improve sharpness but introduce shimmering Texture Filtering - Negative LOD Bias - Clamp Texture Filtering - Quality - High Quality Texture Filtering - Trilinear Optimization - Off Frame Rate Limiter - 58 fps // Change to 118fps if you are using 120Hz Monitor, or offf for 144Hz+ Download Nvidia Inspector Profile Profile for 60Hz Monitor (Locked @ 58fps) *Most common Profile for 120Hz Monitor (Locked @ 118fps) Profile for unlimited FPS Notes / Warnings > Ensure that the Antialiasing modes are matching. For example, 2x/2x, 4x/4x, 8x/8x > Adjust LOD Bias (OGL) to taste. Values between 0 (Soft) and minus -1.500 (Sharper) increase sharpness of textures, although shimmering may occur. Most shimmering I've noticed only on the starting Peragus, although with sharper textures (floor). Therefore you may enjoy settings at 0, -.5000, -1.000, -1.500. My uploaded profile has LOD Bias @ 0 for best stability.
