Shenmue I & II

Shenmue I & II

View Stats:
[Special K] Stability, Cutscene, Framepacing, Texture Fixes - (9/8/18)
Current Work
  • Anisotropic Texture Filtering + Mipmaps

  • 16:9 Cutscenes

  • 30.0 FPS Framepacing Fix
      Option to completely remove the limit (9/4/18)

  • Fix Steam Overlay crashes when disconnecting gamepads (9/3/18)


Important Notes
  • This version of Special K automatically computes missing mipmaps for textures in Shenmue 1 to fix texture aliasing problems.
      The first time you enter an area or meet an NPC you may find the textures are completely black
      If that happens, exit the game at your earliest convenience and the fully mipmapped texture will be loaded from disk the next time you encounter that NPC.
    To minimize this problem, you are encouraged to grab my partial Mipmap Texture Pack[github.com] and place SK_Res\ in the game's directory


Download and Install
    Vanilla
      Grab this[github.com] and extract it to SteamApps\common\SMLaunch\sm1
    Vanilla + Pre-HUD ReShade
      Grab this[github.com] and extract it to SteamApps\common\SMLaunch\sm1

      A pack of textures with mipmaps is here[github.com] (Extract those into the same directory as the DLLs, make sure your decompression software creates a directory called SK_Res)


Issues Fixed
    Early versions of this mod were known to cause sprite smoothing on SEGA arcade games, this is fixed as of 8/30/18

What exactly is Pre-HUD ReShade?

ReShade is a post-processing effect injector. ”Pre-HUD” refers to Special K’s ability to inject those effects /before/ the HUD of the game is draw. This then prevents those effects from also affecting the HUD and menus.

Basically it allows you to inject effects such as FXAA/SMAA, Ambient Occlusion, Bloom, Depth of Field, and various other effects.

Just Google the drama with his Nier Automata mod. It contained some rather unjustifiable code that could be considered malware.

Ah, yes. One of those ”unjustifiable” pieces of code were a safety check that prevented crashes from occurring on memory layouts the mod did not recognize. Guess which piece of code pirates removed? Guess which versions all of a sudden started to crash when they did so? Apparently reading the public open source code were too difficulty for some.

Here’s an article Kotaku wrote about the event: Popular Nier: Automata PC Mod Includes A Piracy Check, Sparking Meltdown

Tried closing MSI Afterburner/RTSS as well as Nvidia Ansel (see instructions here) and see if that solves it?

You can also open the dxgi.ini and disable the texture cache of the mod, although I imagine this would effectively disable the purpose of the mod as well. Anyway, the texture caching can be disabled by changing "cache=true" to "cache=false" in dxgi.ini, under the "[Textures.D3D11]" section.

Otherwise you can temporarily disable the mod by renaming dxgi.dll to something else, and later Kaldaien might be able to figure out what's causing the textures to go missing.

I disabled those and still nothing. Damn I really wanted HD textures. FML looks like I'll be waiting longer.

Which version of Kaiden's mod do you have? My works fine with 0.9.23 installed.

Just tried again. The textures aren't there still. I started fresh even. No overlays everything disabled. And that one linked makes mine .24 not .23

Could you describe what you did to fix it? I was experiencing the same issue as you were, so I fell back to v0.9.20 (without the Shenmue specific fixes) and it now works fine.

Question btw: Can I use the rest and forego the pre-HUD ReShade? And is this compatible with other ReShade settings? (I usually like to tweak my own - not that this doesn't look great.)

You don't need the custom ReShade, no. Just download the "basic" archive if you just want Special K.

Compatibility with other ReShade presets and shaders is extremely high, however I do believe official ReShade recently did a change related to depth buffers and effects, so those types of shaders from the latest official version of ReShade might not function properly. Basically you might have to find an older version of ReShade's effects in some cases (if Kaldaien didn't already bundle one of those, that is).

Do you get any log files in the sm1\logs folder? If so, can you upload the dxgi.log, modules.log, and game_output.log to pastebin.com and link them here?

Do Not Download this virgins mods, they are illicit and may possibly harm your computer. Avoid, you have been warned.

I do have the log files but they are all empty, which is not the case for Monster Hunter World as an exemple, weird, game run just fine when I delete the two files.

I have to get to work :Miller: I'll try to check when I'll get back in the evening
