Not sure how compllicated this would be, but I was thinking a lot people who use reshade these days are just downloading a preset. So during the install it would be great to have a button like "Install from preset" that users could point to a preset file and have it download all the shaders (that are publicly available) that the preset uses. Then maybe just a warning for shaders like McFlys RTGI that require a patreon subscribtion and arent publicly available.

+1 on this bad boy, you summed up what I wrote several paragraphs in my own post about. I had a bit more of a grandiose vision of how that would function, but you're definitely right. A lot of presets out there are nothing more than an .INI file, that assumes you have or can easily find and get the specific shaders the author chose to include in their preset. Moreover, you can't even see a complete list of the specific shaders contained in each repository when selecting repositories during setup, so if you don't either guess correctly, or choose EVERY repository during setup then go through each one, you're SOL.

Let's make this a WHOLE lot more user friendly because without everyone having the same shaders installed there's really no guarantee of consistency between two users loading the same preset.

This was implemented in github.com/crosire/reshade/commit/4207cb...bebcb771f00288a101b6 and the ReShade 5 will therefore have this functionality.
