Frequently Asked

Questions? Find your solution here.

Will this have any performance impact?

Yes it does impact your performance but not by much, i kept all the heavy processing shaders out of this preset.
My own setup lost around 3 fps on average from mid 55 average to like 51-52

Will this work on the steam version?

Yes please read the instructions, as the installation is different to the MS store version.

Why did you make this preset?

It was honestly bugging me endlessly how bad the colorgrading of the sim is, ReShade is very limited in what it can do.
But I think i found a nice acceptable middle ground for how it looks now.

Can I just drop this into the community folder?

No you can't, it's not that kind of addon.
Please follow the instructions carefully.

WOW! Stunning preset! Thanks for your awesome, continous hard work mate! But one question, is it possible to reduce the burned out highlights? Its rly hard to look at white buildings in front of a white cloud illuminated by the sun. They literally get one bright, white object.

Since the update the Reshade doesn´t work anymore on the MS Store version.

The game starts but theres no Reshade message anymore like before

how do i do this? 6. In case the shaders haven't been activated enable the 4 shaders: ''MinimalColorGrading.fx'' ''PD80_04_Contrast_Brightness_Saturation.fx'' ''qUINT_lightroom.fx'' "PD80_04_Selective_Color_v2.fx" .

Press what?

Dont work for me. On loading MSFS it crash to option select "save mode" or continue. If i select to continue, MSFS still not load reshade. I used resade on P3D before i know what it is but in MSFS for me dont work.

Hi there, I have installed the MS Store version per the instructions, added the file paths, etc, however I have no options for the shaders on the main menu. The final light preset shows, but no option to enable the different shaders below that. Is there something I did wrong?

Your instructions at point no 3 gets very unclear for someone not accustomed to doing it. Just saying. Steam version.

Very nice improvement from the default coloring. It could be tweak a bit more !

21-09-21 status update:

v1.3 is coming along well, 1.2 had a bit to excessive bleaching effects and the green hue was a bit overdone imo.

There will be some tweaks to that, and some other couple changes.

For night flying just toggle the reshade off, as the reshade preset will be aimed for dusk dawn and daytimes.

Good morning,

Thanks for your work

Everything seems to be correct for me except the options that you show on your capture ''Shaders that need to be ON.png''.

I don't have any of these options available in the ''HOME'' tab

would you have an idea of the problem ?

When I try to open the sim via the .bat file, I cant get past the "checking for updates" screen before it crashes to desktop

did all those new steps and nothing works , i load the sim press home and nothing happens , i followed all of steps

can you make this work with nvidia ansel ? so it can be used with nvidias geforce experience

Hi,

Where are the instructions to set this?

Can I use it with MSFS Store version?

What is the Github site address for this software?

Thanks.

Can you add steam specific instructions? Thanks.
