Here’s a video showing Diablo 3 with a darker color scheme. It works as a direct3d post processing filter, making the game look sharper, have less saturation, add a slight bit of a (silver) sepia tone, slightly lowered exposure, slightly raised gamma.
Disclaimer: What you are about to download is a Direct3D hooking filter. It is a DLL file and some shader filter files that you place in the game’s install directory. IT DOES NOT MODIFY ANY GAME FILE OR PROCESS MEMORY. The Steam Overlay uses a similar method for this. BUT I’m not 100% sure if something like this is allowed by Blizzard or whether they count it as a “hack or cheat”. So use it at your own risk, even though I’ve used a filter similar like this for WoW for a year.
1. Download one of these zip files: (with sharpening): www.multiupload.com (no sharpening): www.multiupload.com (no darker colors and only sharpening effect): www.multiupload.com
2. Extract the contents into the root directory of your Diablo 3 install.
3. Start the game and turn off/on the effect using the Pause key on your keyboard. Credit: I take no credit for the actual coding and creation of the DLL file and shader filters, I based this on this mod for skyrim: www.skyrimnexus.com The only thing I did was tweak the filter settings to match what you see in the video. Tweak it yourself: If you know a little bit of coding and syntax you can open up the file injFX_Settings.h in notepad and edit the filter…
