Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition


Updated 11/26/15:  added more drive locations

What this mod does:
- Fixes shadows, haloing & various lighting issues
- Fixes an issue where the dungeon map had too much depth
- Adds 2 convergence presets on the 'Caps Lock' key. Use the lower convergence preset for some cutscenes.
- Adds an auto-convergence feature when aiming (whenever the crosshair appears on screen). If needed, this can be adjusted by pressing the 'Z' key and adjusting the depth & convergence to your liking. Save your settings by pressing 'F7' and restart the game.

Remaining Issues:
- HUD remains screen depth
- Light shafts look a little off
- Some flickering bloom & jittery shadows (game bug- this happens even with no fix installed & 3D turned off)

Installation:
- The game must be installed in one of these locations:
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\
  • C:\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\
  • D:\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\
  • E:\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\
  • E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\
  • F:\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\
  • G:\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\ 
  • K:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition
  • S:\Steam\steamapps\common\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition\
- Download this ZIP file and extract the contents into the game directory. 
- For the Steam version--  delete the file "GameOverlayRenderer64.dll" in the Steam directory.

Big thanks to HeliX & DHR for the original Darksiders II fix.

    1. Try deleting "GameOverlayRenderer64.dll" in the Steam folder and let me know if it helps or not. Usually that file causes CTD issues with HelixMod DLLs.

    1. I can't do anything about the aim sensitivity. This mod is only meant to address stereoscopic 3D issues.

    1. Reinstall the fix again. Don't copy the debug DLL into the main game folder.

  12. The first time it worked. Then I installed a different version of the game and now shaders not loaded. Already tried different ways of installation, return the first version of the game, changed the driver. Shaders are not loaded. Shadows, etc. broken. How do I restart the shaders in the game?

  13. I need help fixing the compass/map on the bottom right @ 21:9. It sits over towards the middle righthand side of the screen and I can't figure out a way to fix it. Its driving me insane.

  15. Attention, 5 new fixed shaders here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/masterotaku/Darksiders+2/ds2deathinitive_masterotaku_additions_1.7z

    Unzip that file in the root game folder. Overwrite files when it asks you to do it (it should be 1 existing file).

    - Partially fixed light shafts. The effect doesn't produce haloing anymore but the sun light still shoots from screen depth.
    - Water shaders fixed (some fire effects too with this).
    - Refraction effect in normal attacks is completely fixed now.

    This didn't get attention in the forums, so I wanted everyone that passed through here to play the game in the best state possible for now.

  16. Does this helps with 20 fps camera or with insane aim sensitivity?

  17. My game is installed in "I:\Program files (x86)\Steam\Steamapps\Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition"

    Will this work?

    My C: drive is a small SSD and has no room for my Steam games
    My E: drive is only 750Gb, most of that being used so Steam is not there
    My I: drive is an *tb monster with my Steam being there as my Steam folder is currently 4Tb and counting.

    1. It seems to work, although y GTX970 struggles to keep the framerate up. But with no shader mismatches triggering eyestrain (Like the original DS2 without a fix produced) I will revisit this game in 3D when i get my GTX1080
