P3D 3.1 DSR/HDR/Reshade

Recommended Posts

I've been testing a few settings trying to find alternatives to sharpen up P3D, thought I would share some pics...I'm using DSR 1.5x, P3D HDR, and a few Reshade Sweetfx settings, what I'm most impressed with is how Reshade has transformed my MSE 2.0 textures by adding more color and depth.  Wish you all a Happy New Year.

I was messing with reshade today and I could not tweak reshade to look like that..The cockpit shots look so real. And the dive over the mountains look like it was taken from another plane. Can you post your reshade settings. Thanks

Make sure to follow the readme.txt in the reshade folder you created, it explains how to setup reshade.  Run the mediator.exe in the folder and follow its step by step instructions.  After you've followed the mediator setup, you should have a setup screen that looks like this:

After you've pointed the mediator to your p3d.exe, choose which settings you want to install by using the pipeline tab.  Once your done, click apply and you're ready to go.  The scroll lock key turns reshade off/on in the sim.

Maurice,

 

I only spend a few seconds checking the boxes in the pipeline, then I adjust the sliders in the sweetfx tab, hit apply and see what kind of results I get on the screen.

 Help me out here. All I have is a Sweet FX folder in the sim. I can't find a "Reshade" folder, or a mediator.exe.  I have Reshade 1.1 with Sweet FX installed, and it works in the sim.  Where is this mediator.exe ?  All I have in the Reshade install folder is Reshadesetup.exe. (and a bunch of .dll and so forth.)

Nice shots and thanks for sharing the settings. I never tried reshade before. So I applied it to P3D and punched in your settings. The colours seem to have much more definition now and also these settings give you a more realistic night time effect (darker). I'm really liking the settings now. I always found the HDR in P3D a little washed out even with saturation at full. The combination of both now looks fantastic.

 

I'd be interested to see your HDR settings for P3D too. I also use 4x DSR to kick it up to 4k with 2xMSA and it looks great.

Great shots! Looking at the one you took above the mountains, are you using FreeMesh or something? I just use the default mesh in P3D v3 and it doesn't look as detailed as that!
