    FYI
    When you include links in a spoiler, then clicking on them closes the spoiler.
    This can be annoying.

    I always middle click them (mouse wheel) to open them in a new tab. It doenst close the spoiler that way. But you've seen those images before anyway :p I just posted them for anyone that may not have seen my old ones. I'll hopefully have some new screens to post tonight. Very fun game, even after beating it 3 times.

    I suppose I could just start posting 1600x900s in spoiler tags as an alternative.

    It is getting the original image.
    Most games render in 32 bit. 4 channels (RGB + Alpha) x 8-bit color depth.

    On another note I just noticed today that there is a new MPC build out and a new MadVR - if you have both installed then you can now use shaders with the MadVR renderer.
    This is good because the MadVR renderer can do useful stuff like upsampling, chroma smoothing and dithering.
    It couldn't do shaders before though - It can now.

    I got it for my birthday.
    Once I have time to actually play them I'll use your SweetFX preset.

    That is also my assesment.

    Border is useful for those of you who get that annoying bright line when forcing special AA modes. Thanks for Oomek for getting the idea for this and for making version 1.0.
    I optimized it and included it.

    I can make a setting that allows people to set the thickness of the border, and I can also allow people to set the color of the border.
    Would there be any demand for such features?

    I don't like the look of the cartoon shader either. I was thinking I might get it to create less thick dark lines, but I can't make it stop processing the UI. If it's in the image when SweetFX gets it, it is processed.

    FXAA is just the default in this preview version.
    I don't plan on making it the default in the final version as I still prefer SMAA over FXAA.

    Yes unfortunately AutoHotkey is too powerful - It's scripting ability allows people to use it for cheats, and therefore it's not a good idea to use because you'll get banned for it.

    We need to find another solution.

    BTW my C skills are also 15 years rusty.

    So you need to add different injectors if you want either FXAA or SMAA? I wonder how Radeonpro does it though, because with it you can have FXAA, SMAA and even MLAA at the same time. Kinda like a blur fest ..lol... but the option is there.

    You can have those options including SweetFX with 32/64bit and DX9/10/11.

    Thank you CeeJay.dk and Merry Christmas !!

    My main site is being recreated but the game settings page should still be up... let me go see what happened.

    EDIT: Oh. DUHHURR. I renamed it. http://whoisjimothy.com/public/beyondultra

    Also added my FXAA preset to the DS2 section. It replaced the old settings file. It might need more testing but so far it looks good. My sharpening might be a bit high. The FXAA settings don't blur THAT much... I don't think. I used Marcel's settings from the last page. I'm still experimenting.

    Also realize I have LGG and curves at the same time. It's possible to lower Lift and increase Gain and just remove the curves shader from those settings but... that would require effort on my part :p I'm lazy.

    Working on adding Borderlands 1. Sadly I lost my settings for that game somehow and need to recreate them and test before I post up anything for that game. Boo hiss.

    Does anyone here use SweetFX on iRacing? Couldn't get it to work, googled it but nothing relevant to find. :\
    Got more than enough fps in that game so it would be sweet ^^ to get nicer graphics on it. :)

    without more info we can't help you

    check where you have extract if there is a log.log
    if not the files aren't in the right place or the game don't load custom dll

    I realize this is off topic but I was so happy I wanted to share (even though most of you already know I'm sure)! I just fired up FC3 and it started updating with a new patch (1.04), there are lots of both MP and SP fixes but most importantly to me they have added a SP option to modify the hud (the patch is still downloading as I have a very slow connection but I'll report back once I fire it up and see the changes)! I imagine this will help many more people enjoy the game again!

    Epic settings for Far Cry 3? I wouldn't try. Seriously... over tweaking sweetfx for Far Cry 3 will do the opposite of good. Kinda like trying to tweak Crysis 2. They are mostly great looking games out of the box.

    I've posted my own sweetfx and inspector settings here: http://whoisjimothy.com/public/beyondultra/

    Yeah I got it to work perfectly , for some reason it just crashed right away.
    But after I deleted Sweetfx and Dsfix from the directory, and repasted
    fresh ones it worked. Don't know why though, and sorry for such a damn slow reply.
