Atelier Graphics Tweak
Atelier Graphics Fixes v3b

I have reached out to KT to try to get the FXAA fix integrated into the game.

Instructions:
Rename whatever dll to dinput8.dll and place in same folder as Atelier game.
--------------------------------------------------

meow, I'm not a graphics engineer so this may break in interesting and horrible ways.

Features:
Fixes FXAA thresholds to filter most edges.
Smooths out AO level transition, may reduce strength slightly for much better visual fidelity in motion.
Three versions - no lines (noline), regular lines (v3b), and THICC lines.

Other fixes are only applicable to older games, so you shouldn't have to worry about them.

Fixes:
+---+---+---+---+-------------------------------+ |A18|A19|A20|A21| Game | +---+---+---+---+-------------------------------+ | | | | * | Bloom too aggressive | Dev added NoBloom option! (and reduced strength) | | | | * | Depth of Field too aggressive | Dev added NoDOF option! | y | y | y | y | FXAA thresholds set too high | | . | . | . | * | FXAA run before tonemapping | * when disabled, no FXAA run. So injecting AA here makes sense. | y | y | y | y | HBAO level of detail jarring | | - | % | - | - | SSR depth filter wrong | only in Lydie & Suelle | y | - | - | - | ugly linear tonemapping | 1e950b76-7a1b0be4-b14dff5e-0468e8f3.dxbc | y | - | - | - | HBAO too weak | +---+---+---+---+-------------------------------+ y: fixed with this hack .: (plan fix) %: (in progress) : no idea, if there's a fix, it might apply accidentally -: fixed by dev *: zomg it's a choice!!

v3b: 10 Nov 2019
Update for 1.00b
The dev added shadow resolution settings. Boo, I was working on this (but I can't complain). Do note that "high" shadows can consume over half of the render time per frame.
They also reduced the strength of bloom. IMO it's still overdone, but 0.3 is much better than 0.4.

Change log:
1. Removed no-DoF and no-bloom hacks, as these were implemented by the dev.
2. Added no-outline and THICC-outline versions. Still not had chance to add config capability.
3. Initialize NVAPI to force GPU on laptop MSHybrid systems to prefer NVIDIA GPUs.

Upcoming:
Texture state tracking, for button mods.
SMAA 1x Anti Aliasing.
Config capability

Later:
In-game toggle (for non-Create[Resource] calls)
UI Skip (toggle is hard prequisite)
TAA
Source code (after code cleanup)

Is there a comparison images for before and after fix?
I'm just using the nvidia program to override the game settings.

Is there an option to disable post process AA altogether?

4Kの場合は差がはっきりと現れる。
In the case of 4K, the difference appears clearly.

Thank you very much! I guess there's no way to use this alongside Special K is there? I use Special K to replace the XBOX button textures with PS4 ones. I would try to replace the textures in the .pak files themselves but I don't know what engine Ryza runs on so I have a hard time unpacking them.

Oh wow thank you very much! :D Now I just have to learn how to use HyoutaTools so I can unpack the .g1t files and reach the actual .dds textures!

Use Linkdata to convert .g1t to .dds and you can convert back the dds to g1t https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1HgY-19h4vfC403lb-D26SgdDqkZ2zFvp?usp=sharing
