Dark Souls 2 - ENB Settings

Dark Souls 2 - GEM ENB Settings
Dark Souls 2 - GEM ENB
This is a quick blog post to share my settings for GeDoSato & GEM ENB. This is not a tutorial on how to install these mods.

Easiest way to use my settings would be to make a back up of both of your settings/ini files and replace with mine. (make sure you adjust the resolution to match your native res)

GeDoSato Beta7

# Internal settings

# The amount of logging output for debugging purpose.
# Should be set to 0 if everything works fine for performance reasons.
logLevel 0

########################################################################################
# Graphics settings

# The actual rendering resolution you want to use,
# and how many Hz you want the game to think it works at.
#renderWidth 5120
#renderHeight 2880
#renderWidth 3840
#renderHeight 2160
#renderWidth 3200
#renderHeight 1800
renderWidth 2560
renderHeight 1440
reportedHz 60

# The resolution you want to downsample *to*.
# Should generally always be your output device pixel size and frequency.
# Writing something not supported by the display here will probably cause a crash.
#presentWidth 2560
#presentHeight 1440
presentWidth 1920
presentHeight 1080
#presentWidth 1280
#presentHeight 720
presentHz 60

# How many vertical traces to wait when presenting
# -1 = unchanged
# 0 = no vsync
# 1 = standard vsync
# 2 = half refresh rate (e.g. 30 on 60 Hz)
# 3 = 1/3rd refresh rate, etc.
presentInterval 1

# The type of scaling you want to use.
# bilinear: what GPUs generally do, cheap performance-wise
# bicubic: higher quality, more expensive performance-wise
scalingType bilinear

# Emulate exact flipping behaviour
# requires some extra performance/memory,
# but may be important for some games to work
emulateFlipBehaviour false

# For games which use strange methods to query resolutions,
# injecting a new one might not work. In such cases, you can try replacing an
# existing resolution. E.g. "overrideWidth 800", "overrideHeight 600" to replace 800x600
# 0 = override disabled
overrideWidth 0
overrideHeight 0

# Forces borderless windowed fullscreen mode instead of fullscreen mode

# Select the type of DOF effect
# basic = basic pseudo-Bokeh DoF
# bokeh = shaped circular Bokeh DoF - WARNING: high performance impact

# Bokeh Depth of Field radius
# default = 1.00
# higher = more blurry (e.g. 1.1)

## Post

# Enable Postprocessing
# false = off

# durante = basic postprocessing adapted from SweetFX (dark, local contrast)
