Graphics Enhancements. Modern Shaders

A Mod for Sonic Adventure 2

No ads for members. Membership is 100% free. Sign up!
Graphics Enhancement with my preset via ReShade that contains Modern Shaders for that Old Game (MSftOG).

Main goal for this mod is to save the atmosphere of Sonic Adventure 2 by adding modern effects without overdoing with this. It's not just color correction (saturation) like most presets give!

Effects list:
  • Screen Space Reflections (Optional) - Wet surfaces for White Jungle (medium*);
  • Reflective Bump Mapping (Optional) - Reflections of light from bright objects on floor  (high*);
  • PPFX Screen Space Directional Occlustion (SSDO) (Optional) - Imitation of Global Illumination (medium*);
  • Marty McFly's Ambient Obscurance (MXAO) - Imitation of Global Illumination (medium*);
  • Bloom - Reproduce lighting from bright colors (low*);
  • Lightroom - Colour correction and more (low*);
  • Depth of Field (Optional) - Blurs LQ level backgrounds (low*);
  • ChromaticAberration - 3D effect only on corners (low*);
  • SMAA - Antialiasing (low*).
You can disable any of these effect via ReShade overlay (home button).
* impacts on performance

Better with following mods (the order is the same as the priority of the mods in SA2ModManager):
Also, for better image quality set 16x anisotropic filtering via NVIDIA Control Panel/AMD Radeon Settings.

I edit MSftOG.rar frequently so pay attention on last upload dates on files if you want newest version of preset.

    Hey, BTW, if you want to remove the polygon's artifacts produced by MXAO.fx, it would be better to update to a much more recent version called quint_MXAO.

    As it is more advanced, includes smoothed normals, Indirect Lighting(a crude GI approximation in the scene), and more, it should fix your issues(with smoothed normals activated), and you may even be able to remove PPFX SSDO from your Reshade config, giving people higher performance.

    Finally, to remove the effects from the GUI, you can just make a simple basic mask for most of the UI elements in stages, so it should not be an issue(except for emerald hunting stages a bit).

    Some users have a problem with huge fps drops. I'll try to find a fix. My GPU work only in ~40% with effects ON and 5% off (GTX 1070)
