    #define USE_FXAA_ANTIALIASING 1 //[0 or 1] FXAA Anti-aliasing : Smoothens jagged lines using the FXAA technique. WIP - Currently only works in DX9 and you need to use the FXAA injector dlls.
    #define USE_LUMASHARPEN   1 //[0 or 1] LumaSharpen : Also sharpens the antialiased edges which makes them less smooth - I'm working on fixing that.
    #define USE_BLOOM         0 //[0 or 1] Bloom : Makes bright lights bleed their light into their surroundings (relatively high performance cost)
    #define USE_HDR           1 //[0 or 1] HDR : Not actual HDR - It just tries to mimic an HDR look (relatively high performance cost)
    #define USE_TECHNICOLOR   0 //[0 or 1] TECHNICOLOR : Attempts to mimic the look of an old movie using the Technicolor three-strip color process (Techicolor Process 4)
    #define USE_DPX           1 //[0 or 1] Cineon DPX : Should make the image look like it's been converted to DXP Cineon - basically it's another movie-like look similar to technicolor.

    #define USE_VIBRANCE      0 //[0 or 1] Vibrance : Intelligently saturates (or desaturates if you use negative values) the pixels depending on their original saturation.

    #define USE_DITHER        0 //[0 or 1] Dither : Applies dithering to simulate more colors than your monitor can display. This lessens banding artifacts (mostly caused by Vignette)
    #define USE_BORDER        0 //[0 or 1] Border : Makes the screenedge black as a workaround for the bright edge that forcing some AA modes sometimes causes.

    Hi, guys.

    I have been playing around with SweetFX ever since the Realmware Color Tweaker was killed off by DICE, R.I.P color tweaker :_;

    Anyway, I have been trying to replicate the results of the color tweaker using SweetFX so that BF3 looks as it did with the Realmware Color Tweaker installed.
    I have managed to get it looking near enough to that standard, it's not as good but it's near enough and looks a hell of a lot better than standard BF3 anyway

    Here are some screen shots of before and after.

    The top picture of each screenshot is standard BF3, the one below is with my SweetFX settings.

    These are the settings I changed in Sweet FX

    USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN = 1
    USE_TONEMAP = 1
    SMAA_THRESHOLD = 0.20 // USE_SMAA_ANTIALIASING
    SMAA_MAX_SEARCH_STEPS = 98 // USE_SMAA_ANTIALIASING
    SMAA_MAX_SEARCH_STEPS_DIAG = 16 // USE_SMAA_ANTIALIASING
    SMAA_CORNER_ROUNDING = 100 // USE_SMAA_ANTIALIASING
    pattern = 1 // USE_LUMASHARPEN
    RGB_Lift = float3(0.950, 0.950, 0.950)// USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN
    RGB_Gamma = float3(0.900, 0.900, 0.900)// USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN
    RGB_Gain = float3(1.000, 1.000, 1.009)// USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN
    Saturation = -0.10 // USE_TONEMAP
    Defog = 0.010 // USE_TONEMAP
    FogColor = float3(0.00, 0.00, 1.00)// USE_TONEMAP
    Vibrance = 0.30 // USE_VIBRANCE

    And for anyone that wants to give my SweetFX settings a try you can download it here

    Game looks so flat and dull without the outlines. What exactly was done with sweetfx? It looks similar to regular borderlands 2... maybe slightly desaturated.

    No problem and all you need to do is:

    1- Delete all SweetFX 1.3 files from your Dead Space 2 directory.
    2- Copy all files from SweetFX 2.0 alpha and paste on your Dead Space 2 directory the same as you did before with SweetFX 1.3.
    3- Copy and paste all my settings to " SweetFX_settings " of SweetFX 2.0, then save.
    4- Go play, enjoy, finish the game and wait for the upcoming Dead Space 3.

    Thats all.
