    It's a combination of downsampling, .ini settings and sweetfx and it's more trouble trying to share it and troubleshoot everyones issues with it than it's worth. Give it some time and the community should come up with something decent that's drag and drop.

    I've never gotten SMAA to work with any game, except Torchlight 2. Is this normal? I too have tried things like DeadSpace, Counter Strike GO, Dark Souls, etc

    No, it's not possible without a new injector. That's the way the injectSMAA injector does it and there is no changing it.

    I find it annoying too.

    The best workaround I've found is to sort the folder by creation date.
    You may have to add the creation data to the shown colums first and then you can sort by it.

    In other news, I'm feeling better and I'm back to work in my day-job. Still very tired so I haven't resumed work on SweetFX yet, but I plan to.

    Well, I can't get the thing working. Apologies if I'm just being a retard, but I'm certain I've done everything correctly to the letter.

    I've searched everywhere, but as I'm unable to get any real debugging information, it's a bit frustrating.

    All that I'm getting from log.log is:
    I'm at a bit of a loss here. I've taken all the steps outlined here but no no avail. I've done a bit of Googling, but the log dump I have doesn't throw up anything of much use (and it doesn't even look like an error to me).

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    For Crysis 3, you need to place all SweetFX files in the bin32 folder. But you also need to Make copies of the shader files and settings and place them in the base crysis 3 folder.

    As the game is launching, it looks in the bin32 folder for shader files and settings. If it doesn't find them, it crashes.
    Once the game is launched, it looks in the base folder. Very strange.

    If that's to me then I'm actually trying to use it with ARMA II: OA - I didn't mention it because the log dump made it kinda obvious ;D

    for the walking dead i had to put all the files in 3 folders including the document folder
    i didn't installed crysis3 yet, but thanks for the info ^^

    proffrink the log doesn't show an installation problem so i think you have an incompability problem with others running software

    (Happy you're back into business CJ) Like I said I'm working on a new injector, it is working so far (DX9 only so far), but I still need to improve compatibility : games behave quite differently, some use the endscene(), some other only present(), others use both (hehe)... [some_dude] really did a nice job back in the days getting his injector to work with so many games... So far mine is working 100% for all of the DX9 commercial games I have installed, I'm having some issues with DX9 Pcsx2 and MAME though, working on it anyway... Not much time to write, expect a release in a couple of weeks.

    EDIT : I was banging my head against the wall trying to inject Crysis : it was working fine ingame, but definitely not in the start menus (black screen)... Turned out the game is using DX10 surfaces even for menus (while the engine does run in dx9 when forced with the appropriate flag) ! I hope this is the only game that does that, full compatibility will be a nightmare otherwise... Good news is that you won't have to mess anymore with exotic shaders folders locations, I put everything (dll + sweetfx folders) right into the bin32 folder and voilĂ  : )

    EDIT : I think I'll give up with pcsx2 dx9, I know what's "wrong" (it's using the swapchain->Present() instead of the "regular" d3ddevice->Present()) but that would be too much work to fix right now. I believe pcsx2 dx10 should work ok without any effort if it behaves like it does with [some_dude]/mrhaandi injector.

    Hm, ok.

    Any ideas? Is there a list of software known to cause issues? The only ones I can think of that I have installed would be:
    - Lightshot desktop
    - FRAPS

    I've disabled both but it did nothing :(

    Hallo,
    are there any known problems with SweetFX 1.3 and VAC in Black Ops 2?
    Regards.

    Got it working!

    The issue was Flux :)

    Honestly stuff like this should be in the readme. I'll PM the author.

    Hi, I'm having trouble getting this to work with Day-Z Commander. Stock ARMA 2 OA beta will launch fine but not when launched externally via Day-z Commander. Any ideas? It wont even write the log file when using it through Dayz commander

    I am trying to use this on Far Cry 3. But when I do, I just get a "Autopatch system has stopped working" error and game closes as soon as it starts.

    Jim, does it improve the game allot as in other games and is there a fps hit that is noticeable?

    Hi guys. Could someone help me get the "halation" effect to work with this port. I have all my settings finished but I really want this effect :/

    The effect come with the multipass version of the shader but is not included in the SweetFX shader folder, or mentioned in the config.

    Here's the effect in action...

    OFF:

    Thanks :)

    Hi!
    I have troubles getting it to work at all. I've watched the yt videos, but I don't see a mistake I could have made. Maybe there is a simple reason why it is not working? I've tried v1.3.3 (GUI) and Alpha 2.0 in C&C Red Alert 3 and the new beta of ShootMania.
    Thanks for some advice, this gadget sounds so cool!
