Roblox shaders are mods that enhance the visual quality of Roblox. A popular method for doing so is ReShade, a post-processing injector.
'Roblox shaders' is a commonly used term to describe ReShade presets that are specifically made for Roblox. These presets contain a predefined arrangement of shaders written in ReShade FX (based on HLSL), which change the appearance of pixels based on color and depth data.
Effects are oftentimes controllable through a GUI.
Things to keep in mind when using shaders
- Shaders may affect your in-game performance, depending on the degree to which they are applied. For general usage, at least a GTX 1050 Ti or Radeon RX 570 is recommended.
- It is unknown whether using Roblox shaders can result in a ban. Nonetheless, there are no recorded cases for such bans, and Roblox has appeared to tolerate the usage of other mods, such as the Roblox FPS Unlocker. However, some games' anti-cheat systems may treat shader software installed as exploits, and accidentally kick or ban the user.
- On ReShade, if performance mode is disabled, almost every shader can be customized further.
