Night City Enhanced Reshade
An realistic enhancement Reshade preset for Cyberpunk 2077.
Night City Enhanced is a Reshade preset that will improve the original graphics of the game with minimal or no performance impact, depending on your system. It will give a cleaner atmosphere, a little more realistic look, better color balance, better sharpness and contrast. You will not see a big visual transformation, only a small rework of Cyberpunk 2077 vanilla look. Reshade resources used: Curves, HDR, LiftGammaGain, LumaSharpen, Technicolor2, Tonemap and Vibrance.
ONLY for NVIDIA users: If you are using HDMI conection, Its VERY IMPORTANT to set your Dynamic Range in full, in the graphics card control panel (see this image). For AMD Users: open AMD control panel, click on Gaming tab > Games > Global Graphics > Display > Pixel Format and set to: RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format PC Standard (Full RGB).

ATTENTION: The firewall from some antiviruses can block the download of shader files during Reshade installation (Message: “Unable to Finish Download”). If it is happening to you turn off the firewall temporalily
and try to install Reshade again. In some cases even Windows can block the installation and you will need to check the options in Windows Warning to go on with the install. There is not any viruses in these files, its a false positive.
