Greetings everyone, I've been on a hunt for better look because the game seems a little "foggy" and "pale" in my eyes, I tried many hacks until I found the following to be the best so far.

First here are some screenshots:

sliding comparison images at https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/9634/




Instructions:
1- go to https://sfx.thelazy.net/downloads/
2- download SweetFX 1.5
3- copy to game directory (where the game is installed)
4- unzip (don't overwrite "d3d9.dll" if you already have mod tools installed)
5- go to https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3373/
6- download the preset (.txt) file
7- rename file to "SweetFX_settings"
8- open the game directory and copy the file over (it must show you overwrite confirmation)
9- run game and check to see if it's working
10- if it's not working then copy files from SweetFX\dlls\ to the main game directory, try the fxaa first, if it also doesn't work, try the smaa files.
11- change the brightness to your liking in the games options > screen
12- play the game like a BOSSSS


P.S. @MASTER , @Rojikku , @Rikuto , I don't know if any of you know about this, but I think it'll improve the quality of streams, there is advanced settings that can be altered to increase quality at the cost of GPU power.

EDIT: if you feel the colors aren't bright enough or too bright try one of these (the only others worth loading):
a) https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3509/ (almost same but consumes more gpu)
b) https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3349/ (less color vibrant: easier on the eye)
c) https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3328/ (brighter white tone)
d) https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3315/ (brighter blue tone)
e) https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3389/ (brighter red tone)
f) https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3325/ (even less color vibrant; nearest to origin)

Also, this is a safe operation because you can easily turn it off by adding two slashes "//" before "#include "SweetFX_settings.txt"" in the "SweetFX_preset.txt" file in the game directory

By game directory, do you mean where all the game stuff is is located once you gor through Progam files x86, Steam, steamapps, common, then DOA5LR?
search for "ninja_vi.wmv" that's where the game is installed, it's different for those who change default install folder, but to make sure there's also DATA folder and movie folder that contains some in-game cutscenes.

Ok,I got you! I got it to work, I just copied the files and pasted them in the folder where DOA5LR is located like I do the mods xD

I worked after I used the dll files from my system 32 folder. It should been tweaked by TN itself a long time ago. It's "subtle" as the game still the same, it won't look like DOA6, but it certainly gives it another mood, different from the regular jaded mood you get from playing/watching a game with a washed out color pallete.

I did this a while ago on my game and it started to make my frame rates janky after a while.
well, if you already optimized the setting to the highest resolution, shadows and anti-aliasing to make it run 60fps on your hardware then you apply this hack, it will take drops up to 7 frames at some places like when the fuel tanks on fire in the rig stage, but if you lower the anti-aliasing or shadows or have good hardware it won't, experiment to see what would be best for you.
