DLSS 3 Mod Installation in Starfield
Navigate to the contents of Starfield Frame Generation – Replacing FSR2 with DLSS-G folder. Copy all of the contents and paste it into your Starfield located in Steam->Steamapps->common->Starfield. It will prompt you to replace the existing files and proceed to do so.
After that, locate the streamline folder. It is a subfolder inside the Starfield folder. You must copy the .dll files of the folders you extracted from NVIDIA DLSS DLL software and NVIDIA DLSS 3 Frame Generation DLL contents inside the streamline folder.
If you find the drag-and-drop option annoying, click the scope of each folder you want to copy and press “CTRL+A.” This will highlight all the contents. Click to copy, then hover your cursor over the streamline folder and paste it there. Follow this method for each of the two extracted folders.
