RoShade is a heavily modified ReShade fork specifically tuned for Roblox. Its lite version is available to download for free on Windows PCs. However, the pro version is paid and grants users access to extra features like Screen-Spaced Path Tracing (a low-end form of Ray Tracing), GFX-inspired Backlighting Shader, 4 Pro quality presets, etc.

It has been down since July 5, 2023, since the introduction of Byfron Anti-Cheat. The devs (Zeal) originally made it to work with a 32-bit client of Roblox but that doesn’t work anymore. Microsoft might allow this app to work in Roblox in the future but for that, we’ll have to wait and see.

RoShade vs ReShade

It is a modified version of ReShade for Roblox. It brought new and exclusive features in Roblox along with better visuals and performance. Since ReShade was banned in Roblox, it was made in 32-bit format to bypass Byfron Anti-Cheat. Recently however even the 32-bit build of Ro Shade got banned.

Both of these apps share many features. It introduced easier-to-install path tracing (ray tracing), whereas, on ReShade it can be quite difficult to install. Since ReShade cannot be individually optimized for all games because it is such a tedious and lengthy task, it makes a greater hit on performance than Ro Shade which is specifically optimized for only Roblox.
