Yakuza 0 - Kiwami






3D Vision fix for Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami. It's a merged fix because they share most shaders.

Fixed
- Sea and river water.
- Reflections.
- Some 2D lighting, but it doesn't scale perfectly with convergence.
- Sun lighting.
- Shadows.
- Some effects that only appear in cutscenes.
- Automatic low convergence for cutscenes.


Known issues
- Shadows may be imperfect in some cutscenes. This is the best I can do.
- 2D lighting (which appears at only a few spots at night) doesn't scale perfectly with convergence, and can have some clipping.
- Some 2D lighting when punching enemies or defending.
- Cat fights in Yakuza 0 have incorrect depth for part of the spectators.


Installation
- Download this file and extract its contents in the "Yakuza 0\media" or "Yakuza Kiwami\media" folder, where "Yakuza0.exe" or "YakuzaKiwami.exe" are.
- Launch the game and let it overwrite the profile.


Hotkeys
F1: convergence presets.
F2: HUD depth presets.
F3: HUD toggle. Not disabled by default.
F4: black bars toggle for non high quality cutscenes. It also disables fade to black transitions.
F5: depth of field toggle. Not disabled by default.
F6: ambient occlusion toggle. Not disabled by default.
2 (not the numpad): six bloom presets, from x0 to x1. x1 by default.
3 (not the numpad): dynamic HUD samples (500, 1000, 2000, 4000). 1000 by default (you don't need more).
4 (not the numpad): dynamic HUD presets (centered, per vertex, disabled). It's disabled for cutscenes and menus. Not enabled by default.

  3. Hello there. I have some questions:
    1. The mod's features/fixes are mostly for the 3D Vision, right? Not for when playing on flatscreen (2D) displays. In case I'm wrong, feel free to correct me.
    2. Can we encounter any of the Known Issues if we play on flatscreen displays? I only want to use the DoF toggle. If I enable it, do I risk running into some of the known issues? or not?

    Thank you very much for providing us this feature-rich mod.

    1. 1- The toggles (HUD, depth of field, bloom, SSAO and black bars) work for everyone. The rest are for 3D stuff.

      2- The known issues are exclusively for 3D. You won't see any difference in 2D, and I didn't disable any effect by default.

    2. Hello man, could you fix as well Kiwami 2? It has DOF by default in Kamurocho and it looks horrible. I can pay for the work

    4. i run uninstall bat and the game wont launch anymore please help

      Delete
    5. If you uninstall the mod using the uninstaller have to reinstall direct X because the uninstaller deleted the program too for some reason

      Delete
    6. I just tested this here, ran uninstaller.bat and then run game again in 2D. Works fine. Win10 22H1, Driver 452.06, steam version of game. Not sure what you are seeing there. The uninstaller definitely has nothing to do with DX11 itself, and won't touch any files in system folder. You can edit the .bat file and see exactly what it does.

      If you try to run it in 3D without the Schwing hack on any driver later than 425.31, the game will crash because Nvidia destroyed the DX11 code path.

  4. It seems both games were recently updated:
    > Yakuza 0 received a patch (previously on the beta branch) on 11th March with new fixes.
    > Yakuza Kimami received a beta patch on 11th March, then on 14th March it got officially released (on public branch).

    Does this mod/tool still work with the games? Is it compatible with their newest versions? Please let us know.

    Thank you again.

    1. Is this something you can just try, and let us know? We need people to take the initiative and help out.

  5. It works just fine with the recent patch in Yakuza 0.

  6. for me Yakuza Kiwami crashes on startup, and Yakuza 0 crashes after intro video, runs normally without this mod.
    I would like to turn off DOF but it seems it is not possible.

    1. You'll need to provide more information. I just tested this here using 3DFM to install and launch it was working correctly. No crashes, 3D looks great. Win10 1803, Driver 419.67.

  7. Hi. I heard the upcoming Kiwami 2 game won't have the option to disable Depth of Field. Some users on the game's Steam forum hub posted screenshots of its graphics settings menu, which sadly prove there's no built-in DoF toggle.

    Can you tell us if you got any plans for this? a DoF removal / toggle mod ?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hey can you fix kiwami 2 DOF in Kamurocho? The effect is horrible

    ReplyDelete
  9. Thank you for this mod. Finding the DOF and black bar removal awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yakuza 0 crashes at startup, probably because of patch 4
    Please update the mod, thanks

  11. Hi.

    Working great on Y0, thanks! However, is it possible to disable DOF by default?

    Thanks a lot for your work.

    1. Ok, found a way by changing value 'z=0' to 'z=1' in ';Depth of field toggle.' section. :)

    2. In d3dx.ini file for those who are wondering. Working like a charm on K1 as well.

  12. Hi, i also have crashing in Y0 and YK1 with this mod. It crashes right after the intro movie before the start menu in Y0 and at start up in YK1. I am on Win7 with r9 290, i7 4770k and 16gb RAM. can you take a look at the issue and what additional info do you need?

    1. Do you have the Special K yakuza mod installed? It crashes for me after the intro movie if installed, works fine without it.

      Delete
    2. i had it installed but it did not work, the game wouldnt start with specialk. I deleted specialk and verified my game files afterwards. I looked for an alternative and stumbled upon this mod, which unfortunatelly also doesnt work.

    3. Dude ty for your comment! i hope all goes well in your life

  13. Thank for posting this. I look forward to using it. By chance is there a HUD or something to tell you what your current settings are?

    Thank you

  14. Does this only work with Yakuza 0 patch 3+? Trying to use with patch 2 (later patches perform poorly for me for some reason), crashes after intro. AMD RX 580 with 19.9.2 drivers, windows 10 1903.

  15. Thank you very much for this great 3D vision fix :-)

  16. Also crash for me here.

    1. Works fine here. Win 10 1903, Driver 446.14. Even works in HelixVision. Steam version.

      When you can't figure things out, just use driver 425.31 and everything works.

      Delete
  17. It crashes kiwami for me at startup, using an rx 570 and the latest drivers

  18. Just realized this is for Nvidia only, how dumb
    Well, does anyone know any other way of getting rid of depth of field?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, running in 2D when you could have 3D is dumb. The stereoscopic 3D is only for NVidia, but the 3Dmigoto tool works on AMD. You can disable effects using it. Google around and you will find people using it for all sorts of modding, including no-HUD gamers.

  19. Crashes whenever i try to launch kiwami

    1. Crashed on first launch for me, second and further seem fine. Win10 2004, Driver 432.00. Steam version of game.

      I'm using HelixVision to apply the schwing hack automatically.

  20. Yakuza 0 crashes after startup video

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You need to run the Schwing hack, and use a driver no later than 452.06. Anything past 425.31 will crash DX11 games.

    1. Just tested both Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami. Both work fine here.

  22. It happens to me to crash too, I have the steam version of the game, with the latest updates. When I unninstall 3d Vision fix, the game works, when I install it, the game crashes after I skip the intro scene.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. See above comments, you need to run the Schwing hack for any driver past 425.31, with max driver version possible of 452.06. This happens on all DX11 games because of NVidia.

      Delete
    2. Found workaround. Use Nvidia Inspector and use in the Commons tab the extensions option Medal of Honor Allied Assault.

  23. Ty! really helps me with my mod pack for improve the graphics i hope all goes well in your life

  24. Installing this has completely messed up controllers for both 0 and Kiwami. The inputs are all incorrect, with the only exemption being the face buttons. Trying to edit the controller bindings in-game doesn't work, they never apply to the correct spots.

    1. You might have game in Windowed mode (which can mess with controls) try switching to Fullscreen.

      Delete
    2. I did have it in Borderless Windowed at the time, but switching over to fullscreen didn't help any. I appreciate you trying to help, though.

      Delete
    3. Not sure what you are seeing. I just tested this with Xbox One wireless controller and everything worked like expected.

      Check that the Steam controller stuff is not messing with the settings. I don't think this has anything to do with the game fix, most likely to be Steam settings.

      Delete
    4. It's your mod, the instant I uninstalled it, instantly fixed my controls. Take responsibility and fix it.

      Delete
    5. I tested it, and it works fine. Not a single other person reports a problem. It's your machine. If you don't care to try to fix your broken system, that's your call.

  27. I put the files into the media folder as instructed but now the game won't ever load unless I remove them and play the game as normal. Any ideas? I'm using the steam version of the game

    1. Just tested this here and it was working without any problems. Steam version. Driver 452.06. Used 3DFM/HelixVision to install and start the game. Tested Yakuza 0.

      If you are running drivers later than 452.31 you need the Schwing hack either by 3DFM or manual.

      Delete
    2. Hiya I did a little google search on what 452.31 meant and it seems you are referring to NVIDIA drivers. Unfortunately I am using an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card if that affects anything lol

      Delete
    3. Uh... Yeah, not sure what you are looking for here? This mod fixes graphic glitches when it is run in stereoscopic 3D using NVidia 3D Vision. So it doesn't make sense to use it on an AMD card, because it requires 3D Vision to work.

      Delete
    4. i'm running drivers later than 452 what can i do

      Delete
    5. NVidia destroyed the DX11 3D code path in all drivers after 452.06, so there is no current solution for drivers later than that. We need 3D Vision driver to work, and NVidia just deleted it for no reason.

      Delete
  28. Awful, broke my controls, terrible mod, terrible support from the creator insisting it is "working without any problems."
    Then why does it think R3 is the pause button you fucking ass?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Look man, I went out of my way and retested this on MY system. It works fine. No one else reports this problem. Since YOUR system fails, it is obviously broken only for you. It doesn't have anything to do with our mod. I can't solve a problem that isn't caused by us. We don't do any remapping of ANY controls, we just use system libraries.

      Pro-tip: pissing off the only people who can possibly help you, is not a winning strategy. There are a few things that you could try- and now you get to figure it out yourself.

  29. Idk if this only happens to me but for some reason the option of Cutscenes lighting and shadow dont work, im activate editing the file with z1=1 and doesnt work, i know that because the light effects of the street lights in the public park of yakuza 0 are better when that option is activated a friend show me

  30. Hello there. I've had this mod installed since my first playthrough back in 2019 (maybe earlier), and i seem to remember it got rid of any borders for ultrawide 3440x1440. However now, maybe an update or something, i have little borders on the left and right which i can't get rid of. Something i'm doing wrong? Cheers.

    1. Maybe try Ctrl-F11, which changes the 3D frustum, and can stretch to fit.
