    What settings are you using? Driver-side AA doesn't work for me so I have to use in-game TXAA.

    The game is not utilizing full CPU, that's the problem. It's awesome on processors that have powerful single-threads.

    Your AC3 screenshots look too yellow.


    To everyone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE USE SPOILER TAGS FOR IMAGES!

    What is the base game of the grey mod?

    Hmm .. I googled it and it seems to be a mod based on Halflife 2 : Episode 2

    In that case you install SweetFX for Halflife 2 : Episode 2.

    If I remember right you install to the HL2:EP2 folder (It should be under your username folder, and not in the common folder)

    Then you move d3d9.dll and injector.ini to the bin folder under that and then you disable MSAA inside the game.

    Please keep in mind this before use my settings:
    1- Its not obligatory to use SweetFX 2.0 alpha preview but i did this using it.
    2- I dont include Sharpening and SMAA / FXAA settings to avoid problems with users tastes. Use any AA you like and make Sharpen settings to your tastes too.
    3- If you like the settings say thanks wont cost you nothing :). If you dont like its ok too. You can edit anything you want and make it to your tastes.
    4- I just included all settings do you need so copy, paste / change to the SweetFX version you most like.
