As you can infer from the title, this is a fairly simple ReShade for Movie Battles II. The goal was essentially to make the game look a bit nicer without compromising the 'look'.
BEFORE/AFTER IMAGE ALBUM
SCREENSHOTS WITH RESHADE ENABLED
What does it do?:
-Slight increase in vibrance.
-Ambient Occlusion and improved shadows.
-Additional bloom for lightsources such as sabers, blaster fire and ambient lighting.
-Minor color change that deepens colors to make them colder in cold shades and warmer in warm shades, applies to both textures and lights.
-Other effects such as sharpening specifically aimed at textures for enhancement.
-Several effect configs that you can customize with various other effects at your own leisure (examples include: cel-shading, film grain, ambient lighting, depth of field, motion focus, motion blur, etc..).
-Can also be used for Academy or Outcast.
How do I use it?:
3. Enable or disable with the scroll lock key (if you have no scroll lock key, you can rebind this to another key of your choosing in global.cfg file located in Profiles/Default).
4. If interested, customize the active effects or turn on other ones via config files in the ReShade folder (effects can also be tested and turned on/off while in-game!).
-The ambient occlusion can at times be seen through UI. With the UI already being somewhat transparent, it's not the biggest issue ever, but it's worth noting. It can be disabled if needed.
Does it affect FPS?:
I have it applied to my game on three different systems of varying specifications (one of which being a craptop) and have never had FPS issues from the ReShade. None of the effects are particularly demanding to my knowledge. In my testing, it has been toaster-friendly but your experience could always vary. Some people have reported FPS issues, so if you have any, my first suggestion would be to download the alternate optimized version below. If you still have trouble, tweak some of the settings and see if you can get a mix of good visuals and performance.
1. Download the ReShade pack from HERE. Alternatively, you can download this version if you have FPS troubles. (credit to cannonfodder)
2. Open it using Winrar/7zip.
3. Extract/move all the files into your game folder. You want to put the files in Jedi Academy/Gamedata.
To uninstall, simply remove the files from this download and the ReShade folder.
I think that about covers everything, there's not a whole lot to it lol.
