Racer - ReShade install guide

Discussion in 'Racer' started by sti228, Oct 22, 2016.

  1. Hello. Lot of people ask me how to install new ReShade program - version 3.0.3 for Racer. So I decided to make a little "guide" for this subject. Hope it helps :) Let's start.

    In this lesson i use Racer v0.9.0 RC4 and latest ReShade v3.0.3 (released on October 21th 2016).

    First Part

    After download, go and copy/paste ReShade_Setup_3.0.3.exe to your Racer main folder.

    Then open program setup.exe file, where you can see welcome window.

    [​IMG]

    Click Select game, select Racer.exe file

    [​IMG]

    and click on open button. Choose OpenGL

    [​IMG]

    and when window pop up select Yes for download standard effects.

    [​IMG]

    Wait some seconds until it's done.

    [​IMG]

    Close window.

    [​IMG]

    After install ReShade you will notice some extra folder and files in your Racer root folder. This means that you install everything correctly :)

  2. Second part

    Start Racer.exe file and look up. You will see effects loading message and after 1-2 seconds program will ready for use.

    [​IMG]

    To open and close program press Shift+F2 button on your keyboard. When you first time install ReShade it will show you explanation about every window and tab.

    First you need to create your profile .ini file.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Type your name and press Enter (i type sti228).

    [​IMG]

    Now you can see yourname.ini file (sti228.ini in this case) is saved and effects appeared in home tab. Click finish button.

    Home tab

    [​IMG]

    Settings tab

    [​IMG]

  3. The only problem is:

    I think racer was supposed to have a camera mode in pause mode.

    Depth Buffer can only be accessed via pause or removing all the car's scripts.

    I wish Reshade could access directly the depth buffer.
    I can make AMAZING TWEAKS, but AO / DOF / Reflective Floor only works pausing the game =/
     
  4. The motionblur filter, IS AMAZING.
    Even though it uses depth buffer, it can emulate without it better than Racer engine does.
    The 2 other images are showing the differences between on / off ReShade.


    If you want, i have some updates of motionblur post process fx

  5. I don't understand what you want to say. You mean while play Racer click on "P" button and pause game ? Without pause this effects don't work in game ? Or you talk about replay mode ?

    It's not possible to make program or script for free camera like in LFS, rFactor, Assetto Corsa ? I mean "free cam" movement, because in game cameras attached and follow around (orbit) car. Will be good to reconnect somehow camera from car and use it individually.

    P. S. Sweet screens :O_o: If it's possible please share your settings.

  6. Try ReShade mxao / DOF with a scripted car and in realtime.
    It just doesnt work
     
  7. MXAO and DOF works for me. Which DOF you use ? Save your settings with MXAO/DOF and i will load it. I use this BMW X5M and Racer RC4.

  8. Racer RC10 only works pausing it
     
  9. I don't use RC10 and probably will never do. Car interior dashboard don't work anymore and it's too bad.

    Anyway you can report this problem in ReShade Forum
     
  10. Found the problem.
    My abs.rsx script was using shared references.


    Every script that uses shared reference bugs racer's depth map
