Realistic Lighting 2 JBX (Reshade and SweetFX) v1.9.7

The custom setting v1.9.7 offers the best visual of the gaming environment for most games.

    Description: The custom setting v1.9.7 offers the best visual of the gaming environment for most games, without affecting the quality of lighting and colors. The excess of brightness, bad contrast and pure white is eliminated for more realistic graphics, compatibility with many Games and Mod Graphics.

    Recommendation: Avoid modifying the default brightness and contrast of the monitor*, play in Full HD (1920X1080) or higher and use the graphics settings that I recommend to get the best possible result in the game.

    Additional: Deactivate the graphic options of post-processing effects and any other adjustment that affects the quality of the environment, including anti-aliasing filter not recommended. The brightness or gamma settings must be by default in the games. in some games you have to adjust it to avoid excess brightness.

    Hey.
    Very nice preset. The game looks way better now.
    I have a little question though..
    Is there a way to make it less sharp? It looks way too over sharpened as it is right now. I applied ur settings but I'd like to have it less sharp.
    Can you help?

      Adjust the gamma (brightness) of the game as I recommend. his review of brightness has nothing to do with reality. Some monitors are brighter than others. consult that before rating negatively. regards

    The toning is not as realistic, some details through colors are lost. Also reflections are too strong.

      You simply do not install my preset correctly. I'm sorry, but your comment is not worth anything to me.

    The mod itself is nice, but it is causing annoying graphic bug. When driving in rainy condition at night, the road surface (reflections, shadows) sometimes flickers/popup randomly. It happens even when I disable all effects in Reshade via Insert button. The only solution is to delete reshade completely so it is not loaded by game, it seems the game is not compatible with it :/
