    Game: Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon
    SweetFX version: 1.4
    Author: CeeJay.dk, Boulotaur2024, ninjafada
    Description: 
    
    These are the default settings for SweetFX 1.4
    They smoothen jagged edges with SMAA anti-aliasing, sharpen the image with LumaSharpen and make the colors slightly more vibrant with Vibrance.
    
    Please note when tweaking settings that higher numbers does not always equal better (nor does lower).
    Finding the best settings for your game and your taste is about finding just the right amount to apply.
    
    If you made a good setttings preset please share it with your friends, on forums and websites,
    and/or submit it to the SweetFX Settings Database : http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/

    #define USE_FXAA_ANTIALIASING 0 //[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_CARTOON       0 //[0 or 1] Cartoon : "Toon"s the image. (Interferes with SMAA, CRT, Bloom, HDR and Lumasharpen)
    #define USE_TVLEVELS      0 //[0 or 1] TVLevels : Adjusts the brightness/darkness of the scene with a straight line instead of a curve.
    #define USE_ADVANCED_CRT  0 //[0 or 1] Advanced CRT : Simulates an old CRT TV display. (Interferes with SMAA, Cartoon, Bloom, HDR and Lumasharpen, and it has a very high performance cost) 
    #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_LUMASHARPEN   1 //[0 or 1] LumaSharpen : Also sharpens the antialiased edges which makes them less smooth - I'm working on fixing that.
    #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           0 //[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_MONOCHROME    0 //[0 or 1] Monochrome : Monochrome makes the colors disappear.
    #define USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN 0 //[0 or 1] Lift Gamma Gain : Adjust brightness and color of shadows, midtones and highlights (avoids clipping)
    #define USE_TONEMAP       0 //[0 or 1] Tonemap : Adjust gamma, exposure, saturation, bleach and defog. (may cause clipping)
    #define USE_VIBRANCE      1 //[0 or 1] Vibrance : Intelligently saturates (or desaturates if you use negative values) the pixels depending on their original saturation.
    #define USE_CURVES        0 //[0 or 1] Curves : Contrast adjustments using S-curves.
    #define USE_SEPIA         0 //[0 or 1] Sepia : Sepia tones the image.
    #define USE_VIGNETTE      0 //[0 or 1] Vignette : Darkens the edges of the image to make it look more like it was shot with a camera lens. May cause banding artifacts.
    #define USE_DITHER        1 //[0 or 1] Dither : Applies dithering to simulate more colors than your monitor can display. This lessens banding artifacts (mostly caused by Vignette)

    thanks ill try those and leave some feedback once tried out :) , i recon tcpips version would be the best of em all since it includes all the tweaks of the other members here as well

    http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=4582825&postcount=551

    btw ceejay makes some good points in what to improve :)

    update> niceee , anything else thats possible tweak wise for blood dragon , im lovin this madness :wanker: , btw i havent updated my hardware specs but blood dragon really is pushing my single geforce titan over here , yes ive officially abandoned sli entirely in favor of single gpu performance and no microstuttering and lower power consumption than 2 680s, just couldnt hold out til maxwell , well itll have to do till maxwell atleast :)

    btw am i the only one thats getting occasional framedrops or microstutters even with a single gpu in blood dragon aka far cry3 blood dragon , im using 314.22 drivers, every other game is running buttery smooth , maybe i have to wait for new drivers

    single 670 here , stock frequences
    game all maxed out no problem
    314.22 too
    the more powerfull your gpu are the more it will bounce in boost mode
    i got this problem on fews games when you have too much power to disable the boost, then you have a explosion fps drops boost goes on and stay on until the scene is calm
    so 2 choices, underclock so it will need boost in calm scene
    overclock a lot so it don't need boost
    or force boost always on

    Use the settings file provided with the injector, or add these lines at the end
    Code:
       /*-----------------------------------------------------------.
      /                      Key settings                           /
      '-----------------------------------------------------------*/

    I can't get SweetFX working with Dolphin Emulator (Resident Evil Remake)...no matter if I use Direct3D9 or 11 in graphics settings. Any ideas? I used this instruction...no success :/

    Damn...my mistake. I installed the latest Dolphin version and didn't recognize the it was x64...the one I used before was x86...so I had to use the x64 dlls ;) Works now...thanks anyway.

    I'm taking a pretty big performance hit using this, like 5-10 fps. I'm only using the sharpen setting to counter the blur from downsampling.
    Switching it on ingame with the hotkey and the frames goes down, switch it off and the frames go up again. Anyone else have this problem?

    Why not, but that would mean losing the benefit of sharpening the image only after it has been antialiased, which I'm doing right now with the new injector. I think it looks a bit better but that may be just me. (see my previous posts for comparison screenshots)

    Yep that should be doable

    By the way CeeJay, I've been trying to get rid of the Linear <> SRGB convertions in the Main.h, you're right they do take away performance (~0.2 fps on an average 50 fps benchmark) and while I think it works for DX9 (you'll notice in the Main.h no convertion is done anymore in DX9), DX10/11 has been but a nightmare : I tried all the combinations possible in the C++ code RGB, SRB etc... but the shaders eventually never look the same (either too dark or too bright) as they look with the double convertion you're doing in the Main.h. I'm really confused and believe me, I tried ALOT of different things so I'm kinda lost now. Even after re-reading 10 times your last post about it. That's why I left both convertions intacts in the Main.h (only for DX10/11), otherwise people would complain -and rightly so- that their presets look different

    Turns out it's the SMAA causing the performance hit, will you able to turn it off 100% in future SweetFX versions?

    Hello there guys!

    Im kinda new to forums, so please excuse me for any inconveniences :)
    Also, I want to express extreme gratitude to CeeJay.dk for the suite!

    So back on the track. I pretty much tinkered with the code in the lumasharpen.h shader, and came up with some pretty nice feature. It seems like it adds depth to the textures, much like bump-mapping. I primarily tested it on League of Legends, so I'm gonna post screenshots of that first, maybe post more later, but you should be able to tell the difference.

    with SweetFX - http://s23.postimg.org/uksl0a2aj/Screenshot2850.jpg
    w/o SweetFX - http://s23.postimg.org/t86aknfh7/Screenshot3344.jpg

    I modified the original Pattern 1 in LumaSharpen.h, as i thought it's the least used for sharpening, but u can create your own. Here are the changes in the code that i made:

    **** my set of color coeficients, feel free to experiment
    #define CoefLuma float3(0.2, 0.5, 0.3)

    **** the one and only texture fetch it needs
    #if pattern == 1
    float3 blur_ori = myTex2D(s0, tex - float2(px,py)).rgb;
    #endif

    **** the sharpening procedure
    float3 sharp = ori - blur_ori;
    sharp /= sqrt(sharp);
    float sharp_luma = clamp(sharp, -sharp_strength_luma, sharp_strength_luma);
    float4 done = inputcolor + sharp.rgbr/3.14;

    **** the output
    return saturate(done);

    In the SweetFX_Settings.txt I used those values:

    // -- Sharpening --
    #define sharp_strength 1.00
    #define sharp_clamp 0.5

    // -- Advanced sharpening settings --
    #define pattern 1
    #define offset_bias 0.25

    #define show_sharpen 0

    Don't know if one can post links to files, but if so, crucify me :) Here goes:
    ** LumaSharpen.h

    It should gain the benefit of applying anti-aliasing to the sharpened result, which may look better. I'd like to compare it against the other.

    You comparison shots AFAIK compare AA applied first and then sharpening in the next pass, against AA applied first and the sharpening based on the aliased image blended in with the AA result.
    I'm suggestion doing sharpening in the first pass and then applying SMAA in it's own pass(es), which would apply AA to the sharpened image.

    Yes.
    BTW what SMAA settings are you using? (so I can determine how fast the settings are)
