[Special K] Render Quality and Performance Settings SEGA Forgot - [Updated: 8/10/18]
Version History
  • 8/10/18: - Config menu works without CEGUI; CEGUI disabled by default for compat.
  • 8/9/18: - Fixed screenshot deadlock
  • 8/8/18: - Fixed various threading issues with other overlays
  • 8/7/18: 0.9.24.? - Re-Compiled with AVX instructions turned off for people with older CPUs.

    This mini-plugin for Special K will improve image quality as well as adding all the bells and whistles that come with Special K.

      Current Features:
      • Option to disable first-person blur
      • Option to disable Depth of Field
      • Option to disable SSAO
          Since people won't shutup about this, I should point out it's a performance option rather than img. quality -- I'm trying to cover all bases here and give players options that the developers did not.

      • Fixed the volume at start; JESUS that volume is scary!

      • HUDless Screenshots
          Default Keybind = Numberpad Minus

Download and Install
  1. Grab this archive[github.com] from GitHub.
  2. Extract it to your game's install directory (SteamApps\common\Yakuza 0\media)

    Press Ctrl + Shift + Backspace to open Special K's config menu, then focus on the options under the "Yakuza 0" heading.

    If the mod does not work, third-party software (especially FRAPS!), anti-virus software or Windows 7 is usually to blame.
    Windows 7 has a half-dozen optional updates that you need to install to use modern software such as mine; it's easier just to upgrade to Windows 10 :P
      If after closing third-party software the game still does not start, please paste logs/dinput8.log, logs/modules.log and logs/game_output.log to pastebin.com and provide a link in a post.

Misc Notes
    Texture mods with Special K are currently unsupported due to some truly bizarre memory management problems in this game's graphics engine.

      Update: 8/5/18
        A test version that enables texture mods is here[github.com].

Source Code
    I went overboard with code refactoring and that stuff's not going in the master branch until I have time to validate (that's where you guys come in) software operation better :)

Thanks for this fixes!
No, but that's only because 0.9.24 isn't released yet :)

You can just download the file I linked above and manually transplant those files. Said download is what my installer would use when the Global version is installed, but just picking the plug-ins out of it like this will actually let you use ReShade using this standalone mod.

good job, i didn't notice how worse depth of field makes this game look when i played it on PS4.
why is it making my controller vibrate like hell though, lmao
KyrenCross Aug 2, 2018 @ 8:05pm 
Got it to work with reshade, You did it again Kaldaien.
Yakuza world looks so much better without that vaseline effect ^_^.

Nothing is coming up when I hit ctrl + shift + backspace. It only locks my controller until I hit it again. Also, when I exit the game it hangs for a couple minutes.

I would love to get this working.

After installing this, every time I close the game it's still running. Seems to dinput8.dll at work.

If I had to guess, since you're not providing any logs here... you're running WIndows 7? :) I hate that OS, it shouldn't exist.
Latest build of Windows 10, and there is no logs to provide, with dinput8.dll in the media folder when i start yakuza 0 the "preparing to start yakuza 0" steam box pops up for a split second and then disapears and nothing happens yakuza doesn't start, as soon as i remove dinput8.dll the game starts fine.

The ability to remove the first person blur and depth of field is awesome, thanks for working on this!

I am getting a crash when I go into first person mode with blur disabled and take screenshots using the steam hotkey (mine is set to num pad -). It doesn't happen immediately but after taking a few, the current frame freezes on the screen and then after that controller input causes a metal gear solid alerted guards type of sound and then the game crashes.

If you can't reproduce it I can post the log files.

Am I the only one with terrible frame pacing issues with the game?
Zeikar Aug 2, 2018 @ 9:27pm 
Process doesn't terminate after exiting game. Yakuza0.exe is still running.

Fine for me using the games own framelimiter (AppData\Roaming\Sega\Yakuza0\graphics.ini set MaxFPS= to your fps limit) but using special-k's frame limiter also gives me frame pacing issues, i guess that's because the ingame frame limiter can't be disabled so using another one on top of it is detrimental.

How do I disable only the hello overlay popup?
Zeikar Aug 2, 2018 @ 10:09pm 
Special K still eating 10 FPS like it did when I had Windows 7.

The control panel have an option in a section for how long that banner should appear for. It is by default set to 20. Slide it all the way to the left to 0.
