    Sometimes it doesn't show up in screenshots unless you can print screen grab a screenshot. Sometimes it's subtle to the point that someone can't really tell for sure. Sometimes it depends on your rendering resolution or aspect ratio.
    But it is also possible it doesn't work at all too.

    Do you see a performance hit with it turned on compared to when turned off? (Take a screen of GPU usage in an easily repeatable A/B scenario in game. IE: Start a mission. Screenshot GPU usage when you go in game and are stationary. Turn it on and do the same thing)


    Also with optimus you want to be sure the dGPU is being used and not the iGPU

    The dGPU is definitely used, also my forced 16x AF works great, but the HBAO still doesn't. Performance seems to be the same no matter what I set it.

    I really don't know why it shouldn't work...

    Well it definitely isn't working if GPu usage is the same. Are you playing in 16:9?

    I would just try other flags until you find one that works, see if it has major issues. If not then give it a shot.

    hex edit to the highest strength (0x00000003) (5E D0 00 18 00 00 16 18 75 A0 6F 0F 00 00 00 00), it's a bit too much so change it to whatever value you want

    any known flags for the newer Call of Duty's? such as Bo3 and say modern warfare remastered? I found black ops 2 to be a lost cause and just had to resort to reshade. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

    Currently WIP on "remastered" version of the game needs help on improving draw distance of the city and enemies (I only can edit textures :( ). If you have better AO flag plz reply.

    PC version have a glitches/not all effects cuz of "bad port" mb here would be a way to complete effect scrtipts (textures?) from XBOX 360 version?
    And i wanna make possible to change a stances by a button and combo wall attacks with ground attacks on any surface. (By default you need be on wall to make a different attacks but game have a bug when SM attacks enemy and rushing to ground and animation with damage is continues so i thing it's possible to trigger wall attacs to ground via script.)

    Im replaying The Witcher 2, and want to use HBAO instead of in Game SSAO which has a dark aura around Geralt.
    The profile suggested here (https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/hbao-compatibility-flags-thread.387114/page-39) works fine, looks good while gaming and does not have the ugly dark aura, but has a glitch in "cutscenes", where you can see polygons in characters:

    I am using it even with that glitch, because I can't stand the dark aura that in game SSAO has and the glitch does not appear in normal gaming.

    If you feel like messing with a hex editor , you might be able to fix it by adjusting the angle bias I think. Can't remember if that's the one that really helps with this effect.
    That or in combination with making the effect less strong. (Or look at my adjustments for Dead Rising and modify it to those values and see what it looks like. That and Tales of Zestiria. The parameters are the same in DX9/10/11)

    Does anyone know the flag for Dead or Alive 5: Last Round? I'm currently trying to find the right one but the game is free on steam in case someone wants to help. :)

    Not as far as I am aware. It usually has to be done per game. Even on same engine, they usually are set up differently enough to cause problems.

    I just noticed you added the games to the list, unfortunately the names are wrong. First one is "Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm" and second is "Rising Storm 2: Vietnam". Probably should have typed the full names in the first place.

    0x00000030 will definitively not work for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, since this game is DX11 only.
    The flag you suggest will only have an effect in DX9 titles.

    Care to take any A/B shots for either game anybody? I didn't really look too hard at the source links. Upon further inspection, the screenshots in the 2nd link don't seem to have AO applied and there aren't any screens in the Steam Guide..
