    Hi guys,

    Someone got this working with Neverwinter in DX11? I only got it working with DX9, in DX11 the game shows only the cursor and a black screen.

    Hi guru's!

    I'm having problems starting Mass Effect 3 (All DLC's installed) with sweetFX.

    The game crashes at the Bioware intro cinema or at the "Press any key" screen if skipping the Bioware intro.

    I'm able to start the game if i skip the Bioware intro cinema at a certain point (just at the point where the omni-blade starts to show) NB: Very hard to hit the correct point :D

    Game starts great without sweetFX

    Anyone else had this issue?

    Using sweetFX 1.5.1 - Tried several configs and some of my own without any luck

    EDIT: Derp.. nevermind :D been at it for days and just figured it out seconds after posting this - Seems that ME3 + SweetFX + Origin In-game overlay = Crash. Tested OK 3 out of 3 try's after disabling overlay

    Anyone has any idea if the Configurator will ever be updated? It's been a year...

    I updated it for SweetFX 1.5.1 many months ago. You can find the download link in the first post.

    The .1 I added to 1.5 was partly due to some minor changes to the settings in order to work around some bugs in the configurator.

    As he said, he changed it by himself. He wrote in somewhere that this person, The Lazy, really does lives up to his name, of being lazy and dropping projects or taking long to work with it is what I am guessing... Thus, he took the matters into his own hands and updated it. So, download the one he pointed out, I think.

    I'm sure this has an answer somewhere, but I can't find it. I've got an Asus laptop that switches between an integrated intel chip and Nvidia card for graphics, and sweetfx freaking hates that. To be specific, it always defaults to the intel integrated graphics chip no matter what I want to do.

    I think I get this gist of WHY this happens (something about the interaction of windows, a game.exe, sweetfx, and the d3d9.dll), but I can't find a good, solid process of how to work around this.

    Can any of your smart fellers/ladies help a non-technically saavy brother out here?

    PFFT. Of course, right after I posted this I figured a stupid solution. Since I'm trying to run a dx11 game (rome ii), I just deleted the d3d9.dll. Bam. Worked.

    SMAA doesn't seem to work with BF4!?

    And I can't download the Configurator!

    Do you have a link to the files/settings? I did try GEM & SweetFX about a month ago and it looked nowhere near as good as the screenshots people were posting. And the flickering AA is vomit-inducing. But I'll give it another shot and report back.

    Currently work is done on improving the very buggy OpenGL support. Mantle can only be supported as soon as AMD publishes a public SDK (and ut would be complicated even then, as I'm developing on a mobile NVIDIA GPU).

    RadeonPro or HiAlgoBoost would make your day.

    It's just sweetfx with another name and less shaders, isn't it?

    It by itself, I guess that is the case, I am not sure and I am too dumb to figure it out by my own. I used the one that Doktor1 has provided in another place for RTW2.
    Apparently, he has made some changes, as you have done to insert the shaders from 1.5.1 into the Boutolotaur's injector, to make this GEM and the SFX to work together. GEM has it own config file set apart from the SFX:

    I like the GAMETRUECOLOR option more than the others. If I am not mistaken, I have lost around five fps with GEM's shaders in Bioshock Inifinite.
