Yakuza 0 - Kiwami

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

- 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.

- 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.

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.

  1. Thanks a lot for the fix masterotaku.

  2. Thanks man, can finally disable the horrid dof in Kiwami.

  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. 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 ?

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

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

  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.

    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.

  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 :-)
