    Thx! Your 64bit files actually works under Windows 8.1 x64+Battlefield x64 mode! No more blurry mushy colours! You saved my day! :banana:

    Offtopic: Next in the wishlist would be Rivatuner Statistic server x64 support!

    I have a performance loss by 30 fps in Skyrim. (from 50 to 20) I have a Geforce GT 540M on my laptop. Is it normal? Is there a way to fix it?

    Code:
       /*-----------------------------------------------------------.

    #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. Set gaussian blur along with it to get a halation effect
    #define USE_BLOOM             0 //[0 or 1] Bloom : Makes bright lights bleed their light into their surroundings (relatively high performance cost)
    #define USE_HDR               0 //[0 or 1] HDR : Not actual HDR - It just tries to mimic an HDR look (relatively high performance cost)
    #define USE_LUMASHARPEN       0 //[0 or 1] LumaSharpen : Also sharpens the antialiased edges which makes them less smooth - I'm working on fixing that.
    #define USE_GAUSSIAN          0 //[0 or 1] Gaussian Blur : can be used to... blur, but also bloom/hazy/glowy look, also unsharp masking

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

    If you going to MSI AB thread, you will know that it is supported with the beta version. ;)

    Try disable all effect and enable one at once and you will find the problem, 540m is not so potent for add more effect, try use only lumasharper and vibrance, disable antialiasing in game if is on and use smaa.

    I'd like to use the SMAA in BF4, FXAA in the game really work bad and MSAA x4 is very heavy, probably still has not been optimized.

    Probably CeeJay is too busy, but i hope that in January he's able to complete the full support to the SMAA

    meanwhile I hope for a game and drivers optimization.

    For BF4, did you set as 100% resolution?

    You sure your game hasn't stop running on the Nvidia GPU? Nvidia's optimus for laptops doesn't support binaries like ENB or sweetfx (unless you use ENB's injector). If you're having a huge performance hit like you say you're probably running on Intel's onboard graphics.

    EDIT: CeeJay talked about this a while back. (Click Here)

    Yes because with my system i lose to many fps with more than 100%, but lumasharpen fix all with small performance impact.

    I look forward to see how mantle increases performance, unfortunately in this case we have to wait some time before efx becomes compatible with mantle.


    I think you're right

    As already suggested, it's your card. NVIDIA Optimus doesn't like most of the Direct3D 9 wrappers out there and switches to your internal graphics card, got a 540M myself.
    There are multiple ways around this issue:
    • Use the workaround by HiAlgo linked above
    • Use the ENB injector and configure it to load SweetFX as the proxy library
    • Use an external application to inject the library once the game started. Onl Supported by Radeon Pro (which does that as far as I know) and eFX.
    • Simply use an injector which doesn't have that issue. I don't know if there is any other than eFX which solved the issue yet, without the need for a workaround (sorry for a bit of selfadvertising)
    Pick what you find easiest.

    Whiplashwang, Crosire
    HiAlgo works, thanks.

    SGSSAA is a relly good techique but is it possible to combine it with other methods to sth. like SG-SMAA or SG-MSAA?

    Can anyone confirm that redistributing SweetFX is allowed?

    I'm a member of another forum and I've offered to upload the sweetfx package there but a moderator will not allow the upload to go live until It's been confirmed.

    Thanks.

    :edit:
    I also offered to upload since it has a custom preset for a specific game
    ( I say game, It's for a new simulator that's been released )

    I think it is allowed because I've seen it in bunch of other forums around teh web. But I think you would rather wait for a confirmation from someone more reputable.


    Again, I'd like to ask, can someone make the 1.5.1 have the Chromatic Aberration? I have Boulotaur here, but I'd rather use 1.5.1. PLease? ):

    EDIT: A typo that I found.

    I believe that it is okay to redistribute SweetFX as long as credit is given where credit is due, take for example TFL on OCN.

    Is there a way to use SwFX with d3doverrider, or enable triple buffering somehow with it?

    Hi there, can someone help me?
    I downloaded SweeFX configurator 1.3 and I'm trying to aplly it's SMAA in Far Cry 3(dx9 PostFX set to False) and The Witcher 2.

    It just won't apply SMAA, other filters seem to be working fine.

    My GPU is a GTX 460 768 MB
    Using nvidia 327.23 driver

    Edit: Tested again, it's working on The Witcher 2 altough not on Geralt, he is jagged as hell while other objects like tree's look much better
