    Here is my test screenies for Dead Space 2:

    Notice how I got virtually all jaggies out and how the lighting appears slightly better and that you can actually see what is what now on screen, everything doesnt jest mesh together anymore.

    I plan to test out my current config a lil further and if needed tweak it slightly more and then in time plan to release my configuration to the public here.

    Hope all like.

    I forgot to mention: yesterday, after releasing the latest preview build, I played a bit with SweetFX and got it working directly from RP, without the need of 3rd party injectors. I'll do some more testing and compare results with injector version, if everything goes fine, the installer will be update later tonight. To SweetFX fans, fingers crossed then

    hi guys
    I've been working on a full video series exploring the potential of sweetfx. Part one is released and parts 2 and 3 follow this week. Thanks for ceejay and terra for permission to showcase their work.

    Anyone know how to embed youtube into these forums?

    Part one
    What is sweetfx? How do I install it?

    Edit: Great video! :) A bit saddened we have to wait for part 2 to see live edits, though..

    Is there a way to use the FXAA injector along with SweetFX?

    Not a bad idea. I'll try ENB + SweetFX to see if that works.

    Playing Rage right now. Oh how I wish this game wasnt OpenGL so I could use SweetFX here too.

    Overall, I like it, I anticipate seeing any further refinements you do to the injejcor settings. heretofore, I had been using Sepia to de-blue-ify the game.

    My GW2 Settings based upon TechnoJellyFish's settings.

    /*-----------------------------------------------------------.
    / Choose effects /
    '-----------------------------------------------------------*/

    // Set to 1 for ON or 0 for OFF
    #define USE_SMAA_ANTIALIASING 1 //[0 or 1] SMAA Anti-aliasing : Smoothens jagged lines.
    #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_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_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_LIFTGAMMAGAIN 1 //[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 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)
    #define USE_SPLITSCREEN 0 //[0 or 1] Splitscreen : Enables the before-and-after splitscreen comparison mode.

    // -- Advanced SMAA settings --
    #define COLOR_EDGE_DETECTION 1 // [0 or 1] 1 Enables color edge detection (slower but slightly more acurate) - 0 uses luma edge detection (faster)

    Are you using the 32bit or the 64bit exe? - because the injector that SweetFX uses is only compatible with the 32bit exe.
