If we had access to make new texture maps for games being apply to apply those new maps the game didnt original support say something like bump mapping in kotor 1 and kotor 2 , or even reflection maps that could be controlled by a shader within reshade.I would love to be able to enable say a folder location with custom bump maps made for kotor series and really boost how the game looks. In my opinion this is a great step for older games with limited graphic functions and is a better solution then a outright engine port which is in progress with kotor to ue4 i do believe fan project btw. If this would be possible or not what would make enabling this easier to do and perform better if possible

Yes, it would be good to dump and replace the textures with ReShade like some Glide wrappers and Dolphin Emulator do.
There is a texture scaler plugin for Gimp - Resynthesizer. It can easily upscale the 64x64 texture to 256x256, and, if you repeat, to 1024x1024.
It also would be good to write a shader that will convert diffuse maps to tangent normal maps. This is the example of shader of that kind which I done for Cycles.

I suppose that kind of modding will require engine hack for each game requested.

Moreover it would definitely get ReShade banned from multiplayer games.
Cheers, crosire =)

Which game got you banned from using SweetFX?
Finding relief somewhere between a tree's branch and its shade.

and thus we now know why enb creator only mods and works on things he wants to , when someone has a suggestion there is the off chance that could be used in a negative way for online games but when a feature to help extended onto a bad game engine has the chance to allow "bad texture" modding for online games it becomes moreover definitely get reshade banned from online games such view on a project like this to just keep throwing shaders into a "framework" that actually in most cases hurt the original intended feel of a game but who am i kidding we need more saturation and color accuracy where all color correction is destroyed in the process and texture so sharp that aliasing occurs and color artifacting starts up.

There is already no limit what shader we can write using the depth buffer. The limitation is only applied to the specific applications which does absolutely not rule out that the written shader can still be used in all the other apps.
We have to ask ourself though how well texture swapping could work in such a generic way.
True, all static color correction can ultimately be covered by one LUT but to get there we have various algorithms that differ in their results and need to be applied to create the necessary input which is needed for the LUT shader.
For everyone who does not own photoshop or similar those algorithms can be chosen and applied through ReShade.
Everything else is a matter of taste which is why we provide free variables for each individual shader and not only the hard coded version of our own "bad" taste ;)
