Resident Evil 4 Remake is one of the best titles of the year and an excellent remake of the original 2005 release. The PC port is great, with tons of settings to tweak and adjust, but the modding scene has taken the title to the next level. If you want more information about enemies in the game, you can install the Resident Evil 4 Remake Health Bars mod, and here is how.

This mod created by GreenComfyTea does exactly what it says and adds health bars to enemies in the game.

I highly recommend that you use this mod after you’ve beaten the game because it does get in the way of immersion and the survival horror aspect of the title.


This mod works differently from the Fluffy Mod Manager, so you’ll need the REFramework, and REFramework Direct2D. If you already have both, you can skip this prerequisite part.

  • Sign-up on NexusMods, so that you can download the mod manager, and mod files
  • Install Winrar or 7zip, to extract compressed files

Download REFramework

Manual Download REFramework
  • This will download a zip file

Download REFramework Direct2D

Manual Download REFramework D2D
REFramework D2D
  • This will download a zip file

Extracting both Tools

Extract both zip files (REFramework, and REFramework D2D) directly into the Resident Evil 4 Remake folder.

Installing the Mod

That’s pretty much it, and the next time you launch the game, REFramework’s toolbar will appear in-game. You can toggle it using the ins key. You also need to get a bit close to the enemies for the health bar to show up.

Here are a few screenshots of the mod in action.

  • I followed your instructions exactly, now the game doesn’t open, it says ‘an error occurred while updating’ in the little steam box that normally just says ‘preparing to launch’ then opens the game

    • Are you on Steam Deck? Also, you can simply remove the files as I instructed, and verify RE4 through Steam just for good measure.
