- Additional fixes catched wrong by RegEx or not catched (Losti)

- volumetric lights = disabled

3.  Download

- To improve this game, simply use the UNIVERSAL Fix 2

4.  Introduction to get it working

- uninstall old fixes!!! ... if you have used a WIP or updating to the latest fix if there is an update
- install the latest NVIDIA driver
--- If you have any trouble that is not described in section 2, use DDU and clean install your graphic driver
- download and extract the archive to your "...\BardsTale4\Binaries\Win64" directory, where the BardsTale4-Win64-Shipping.exe is located
- follow section 4.1 !!!
- PLEASE press F10 if you load the game and it will remain 2D !!
- PLEASE read this:

==> if you have any trouble or issues you cannot solve please do not hesitate to contact me via my PayPal donation address, or in the 3D-Vision Forum

TB and SBS Mode (optional):
- The game support SBS/TB Mode using 3Dmigoto. Remove the ";" in the  ";include = ShaderFixes\3dvision2sbs.ini" of the d3dx.ini. Default TB Mode. F11 to cycle. Also remember to use "HDMI Checkerboard" in the NVCP to remove the 720p limitation.

4.1  Ingame Settings

- Everything you want (I think ... not finally tested, fix is coming with RegEx on the fly Shader-Fixing that should catch all effects)
- if you have any trouble that is not described in section 2, use highest available settings and lower them step by step to see which one is causing issues
- choose FXAA or no AA but NOT Temporal AA
- disable motion blure ("Bewegungsunschärfe")

5.  Key Settings

-  this is a cycle key
- d3dx.ini section: [Key3-HudDepth]
- Cycle depth of the HUD

-  this is a cycle key
- d3dx.ini section: [Key3-Crosshair]
- Cycle depth of the Crosshair

-  this is a toggle key
- d3dx.ini section: [Key6-ReadNotice]
- for reading notices and or if you need no depth in menue things....

6.  Key Setting - Customization

----only for more advanced users---

If you don’t like the settings the fix comes with, you have to find your own likes:
- to watch your current convergence/separation set hunting=1 in d3d11.ini
- change constants/settings/keys and check the result in game by pressing F10

6.1  3Dmigoto - Constants

----only for more advanced users---

- the fix comes with the following default constant settings
z1 = 0.5


- general HUD-depth: the less the less the HUD depth, standard is 0.5


- general HUD-depth: the less the less the HUD depth, standard is 0.3

6.2  3Dmigoto - Preset Changes

----only for more advanced users---

- change the settings for the presets if you dont like it



6.3  Advanced Key Config

----only for more advanced users---

You can define keys in [Constants] section with:

Key = KEY 

- for choosing a key look here for replace KEY with it (
- replace CONSTANTX with the constants written above
- replace XXX with a value, see above
- replace SEPXX with a separation value, leave it = the separation you choose by STRG+F3/4, no changes, 100 = 100%
- replace CONVXX with a convergence value, leave it = the convergence you choose by STRG+F5/6, no changes

Key Press Types:
- type = hold ==> only active while holding this key
- type = toggle ==> enable/disable this setting
- type = cycle ==> cycles the settings via this key, e.g. SEPARATION = 100, 50 will cycle between 100% and 50% separation pressing this key
--if you have more settings you need to define it for every cycle step:
--means: if you want to change separation and you want to use the same constant for both settings use:
- no definition = settings set on ON once pressed the key

You can also change any existing key definitions changing the key behind key = in the d3dx.ini .... if you like the setting but want another key for it.
