Mods

Mods that Provide Special Edition Features

SSSiyan Collab Cheat Trainer

A collected mod trainer that provides options for Turbo and Must Style Mode, restored reversals, redirectable inertia, extended practice options, PVP, and more.
Features options from included Devil May Cry Strive mod for tweaking character movesets and general gameplay
This mod now integrates the Legendary Dark Knights mod completely, with customizable enemy density.
Requires Fluffy Manager 5000 for installation.

COOP Trainer And Hidden Graphics Effects Enabler for Devil May Cry 5 by DanteSSS and Raz0r

Provides the ability to play as any of the three main characters in any mission (Divergence).
Enables up to 4 player online coop in most missions, including Bloody Palace.
Works with SSSiyan Collab Cheat Trainer, including the Legendary Dark Knights option (all players must have it enabled)
Enables activation of hidden graphical effects normally used only during cutscenes. Not even the Special Edition on next-gen consoles has these enabled during gameplay.
This includes Contact Shadows, More Anti-Aliasing options, Ambient Occlusion (and more AO options), Subsurface Scattering for skin, Screen Space Reflections, and Motion Blur.
The "Force Motion Blur" option only works if motion blur is set to "Variable" in graphics settings
The SSR (Screen Space Reflections) "On" option produces a large amount of ghosting on object surfaces and makes various surfaces in the game have a blurry, grainy moving pattern to them, especially when you move the camera. This appears to depend per-level and per-surface, having higher fps makes the issue less noticeable. Use at your discretion.
Enables importing of save files from other steam users

RTX Mod

Adds screen space ray traced lighting
Causes AO to "bleed" through alpha transparency effects, such as smoke/fog, volumetric lighting, hair, explosions, etc.
In-game AO should be turned off since it's replaced by RTGI, and has a big enough performance hit as is.
Recommended to use via GShade instead of Reshade
Relies on RTGI beta shader from Pascal Gilcher's Patreon that costs 5 USD to access

Issues fixed

Game is infinitely scrolling after using the Steam Overlay or Alt-Tabbing

Enter Windows Device Manager and disable devices[citation needed]
  1. Open Device Manager from Windows Start Menu
  2. Expand "Human Interface Devices" list
  3. Find and disable device labeled "HID-compliant vendor-defined device"
    • There may be more than one device with that label. Try disabling one by one to see which one is causing the issue.

Notes

When you reopen the game after you have disabled the device, the infinite scrolling shouldn't happen after using Steam Overlay or Alt-Tabbing.

Fix stuttering

Alternative solutions
  • Download and install Rivatuner, add DevilMayCry5.exe and limit Framerate to desired fps.
Use DirectX 11
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change TargetPlatform=DirectX12 to TargetPlatform=DirectX11
  4. Save changes.
This seems to fix the issues for people with low RAM or VRAM, or is experiencing stuttering or desync issues during cutscenes, gameplay

Lens Flare Censorship on female bodies

Devil May Cry .ini has a distinct option for Lens Flare.
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change LensFlareEnable=true to LensFlareEnable=false
  4. In order to get rid of some cutscene censorship at the beginning of mission 7, you have to change DepthOfFiledEnable=true to DepthOfFiledEnable=false
  5. Save your changes, enjoy.
Lens flare may be used in other places in cutscenes, however the writer hasn't noticed any changes.

Contact Shadows

How to use сontact shadows constantly:
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change ContactShadowSetting=CUSTOM to ContactShadowSetting=ON
  4. Save your changes.
Contact shadows will be used during gameplay, not just for the cutscenes.

Cutscene Black Screen Fix

How to fix Black Screen during cutscenes:
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Open dmc5config.ini
  3. Change UseVendorExtention=Enable to UseVendorExtention=Disable
  4. Save your changes.
Might fix the issue on some devices.

DirectX 12 Audio De-Sync Fix (NVIDIA GPU)

How to fix the audio De-Sync on DX12 for NVIDIA GPU's:
  1. Open Nvidia Control Panel.
  2. Click on Program Settings and select the game from the list.
  3. Set Vertical Sync to Fast.
  4. Save your changes.
Might fix the issue on some devices.

Notes

  1. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/601150/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (601150) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
