    That's the first time i hear that. And even if it's true. There are still 2 people working on SweetFX.

    Boulotaur got tired of it because he worked on it so much, he never said he was done with it nor did he say that he wouldn't work on it again. Evidently he responded to someone in July about sweetFX not working with DX11 with win8.1 and stated this:

    That was a little after he had stated he was burnt out on the project.

    2.0 will come eventually, if someone wanted to pick up where Boulotaur left off and help make 2.0 a reality sooner, they are welcome it as the source code is freely available.

    CeeJay is still working on SweetFX 1.5/1.6, there will be new versions regardless of the the halt in Boulotaur's injector. The project itself is still very much alive, CeeJay is splitting his time(free time) between work on SweetFX and another injector called eFX (which is not his project per-say but he is helping the creator which could lead to OpenGL support for SweetFX.)

    Basically what you hear is not completely true and covered in rumors that don't add up to whats actually been going on. :p

    can anyone tell me the difference between sweetfx 1.4 and sweetfx next(1.5?). Is that the x64 compatible one that's in beta?

    If not I'd appreciate some enlightenment :)

    SweetFX-Next is what Omnipotus calls it, it's just Boulotaur's injector with a slightly less of a mouthful name.

    Any change for workaround with SweetFX to work with Windows 8.1 RTM ?
    Mainly it's a problem because it uses DirectX 11.2. I get this error multiple times:

    Yes, use RadeonPro's sweetFX.

    This should be updated in the FAQ the next time CeeJay is on.

    I'm on Nvidia.
    how would I get that to work?

    He was too, you use it practically the same way an amd user would aside from the the options. You're only using the SweetFX portion which works without a problem with Nvidia cards.

    still ,a guide for the complete newbie wouldn't be bad. you know how to use it and it seems easy to you, but I installed radeonpro and there are some steps like defining sweetfx directory from settings menu etc. Haven't got it work though...

    ^What exactly do you need help with?

    Far as I know, you make a profile for a game, import the settings file to RadeonPro, tick each field you want enabled and highlight the settings and you edit it in the box below "effect settings."

    i figured it out eventualy. thanks anyway. hopefuly there will be a standalone (non-radeonpro) solution available soon...

    I feel like a moron asking a question that has been probably asking a million times.

    Seeing as Win8.1 RTM is close, I'm thinking I'll update to it. SFX works fine in Win8 for me but I keep hearing about issues in 8.1 and seeing as SweetFX doesn't seem to work in 8.1(going by the reports) did CJ Or Boulo ever mention something about fixing it or is Radeonpro is only hope for now?

    There is no problem with win 8.1 if you use Sweetfx with Radeonpro. You can check videos I already posted.

    Boulotaur haven't been around for a couple months, however CeeJay said seeing as RTM is not released and only developers and pirates have it, it's not big issue at the moment. When 8.1 is in official release CeeJay will likely update the dxgi dll(or rather make a new one) to make it compatible.
