ReShade CRT Easymode + Custom Layout for 1440p


How to install:

  1. Go to ReShade website and download the installer
  2. Install by selecting the citra-qt.exe and chose Opengl
  3. Of the shaders you are given to choose to download, uncheck everything except DisplayDepth.fx
  4. Put CRTEasymode.fx (from the download bellow) in reshade-shaders\Shaders
  5. Launch any game in citra and press Home, do the tutorial and create [Pushing “+” button] a preset called whatever you want, check CRTEasymode (it will look horrible because of the low res), then exit citra
  6. Go to citra-qt.exe folder and open 'YOUR PRESET NAME".ini
  7. Copy everything from Citra.ini (download below) and paste in your .ini
  8. That’s it for ReShade. Now for custom layout (only for 2560x1440 resolution) go to user\config and open qt-config.ini and copy/paste this under the layout section:

custom_layout\default=false
custom_layout=true
custom_top_left\default=true
custom_top_left=0
custom_top_top\default=false
custom_top_top=150
custom_top_right\default=false
custom_top_right=1920
custom_top_bottom\default=false
custom_top_bottom=1307
custom_bottom_left\default=false
custom_bottom_left=1920
custom_bottom_top\default=false
custom_bottom_top=601
custom_bottom_right\default=false
custom_bottom_right=2560
custom_bottom_bottom\default=false
custom_bottom_bottom=1080

Optional:
-To improve frame pacing in citra, download RivaTunerStatisticServer (comes with MSI Afterburner), add citra-qt.exe then click on zero next to Framerate limit and type 59.96
-To improve (or fix in my case) fullscreen performance for Nvidia graphics cards, open NVIDIA Control panel then go to Manage 3D settings, click on Program Settings and add citra-qt.exe to the list and then set:

  • Power management mode = prefer maximum performance
  • Threaded optimization = On
  • Triple buffering = On
  • Vertical sync = On
