Assassin’s Creed Mirage is one of the best-looking entries in the series yet and renders a beautiful reconstruction of Baghdad. Despite its excellent visuals, one sticking point is the implementation of chromatic aberration, which has been criticized for its overuse throughout the title without any toggle available. Here is how you can disable the Assasin’s Creed Mirage chromatic aberration effect on PC.

Disable the Assassin’s Creed Mirage Chromatic Aberration

To fully disable chromatic aberration in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you need to use a hex editor and replace a value in the executable.

Check out how bad the chromatic aberration is in its current state in the screenshot I took of the opening area.

Notice the tree on the left and the bushes on the right.

Here are the detailed steps to remove chromatic aberration from the game.

Download and Install HxD

  • For this to work, download HxD from the following link
  • Install HxD

Use the Assassin’s Creed Mirage executable in HxD

  • Make sure Assassin’s Creed Mirage isn’t running
  • Launch HxD
  • Now drag the ACMirage.exe (or ACMirage_plus.exe if you are using Ubi+) into HxD
  • Once opened in HxD, you will see a bunch of values
  • Press CTRL+R, and then select the Hex-Values tab in the new window
  • After this click on Search Direction “All”
  • In the Search for section, enter 80 79 32 00 75 4E
  • In the Replace with section, enter the value 80 79 32 01 75 4E

  • Hit save (Ctrl +S) and exit HxD

Here is how the game looks without chromatic aberration. As you can see, the details are sharper, and the overall image quality is much more clear.

Here is the same tree and bush that I shared earlier, now without chromatic aberration.

We hope that Ubisoft adds a toggle for this option in an update, as it is easily the most requested feature at the moment.

    • You’re welcome! Oh, and the game has forced TAA, and upscaling techniques only. I haven’t found a way to disable TAA yet, so you’re best bet is to play at a higher resolution than native and use DSR/VSR for better image quality.

  • Hey, I’ve done what you did and seems to be working. Interesting thing tho is that when I try to searrch for 80 79 32 01 75 4E it says it can’t find it. Then I uninstalled and re installed and searched for 80 79 32 00 75 4E then guess what, can’t find it. And it can’t find 80 79 32 01 75 4E either. WTF? 😀
