Then, they will simply drop the mod’s contents into the Knowledge folder, and it will work with any of the three upscalers.
Microsoft Retailer/Recreation Cross customers, then again, can’t use SFSE. As such, they’re going to have to put in Final ASI Loader as a substitute after which place the contents of the Upscaling Repair mod into the foundation folder of the sport, close to Starfield.exe.
