Shenmue Dojo's Step by Step Guide to Installing I & II Mods [Video Tutorial]

Jul 24, 2018
Edit: Updated video available - please use this one instead

Interested in revamping your Shenmue 1&2 experience with mods, but don't know where to start?

Fret not! Our own ShenmueGuru has put together a VERY comprehensive video tutorial on how to freshen up your next playthrough... today!

A HUGE ROUND OF APPLAUSE to all the modders & testers across the forums & Shenmue community at large for putting all their (relentless!) passion, talents & efforts into this! Your legend will never die!

And without further ado, LET'S GET MODDY!
followed the tutorial video to the T now Shenmue 1 will freeze and close
Spec: I7 7700HQ
GPU: GTX 1050 4GB
Storage: 1TB WD M.2 SSD
I have followed the video tutorial, but the texture mods don't work at all (did everything according to the video). The game only shows the old textures. Another problem: there is no dxgi.ini file in my sm1 or sm2 folder (only dxgi.dll and dxgi.pdb).

Edit: Found a solutions from the youtube comments: "You have to have create folders in "Documents": Documents\My Mods\SpecialK\PlugIns\ThirdParty\ReShade Then you have to put ReShade64.dll in there. ALso you need to copy the folder SK-Res into Documents\My Mods\SpecialK "
