    I dont get it...I see many peeps in this thread still that earlier complained about screenies expanding the board's layout too much...yet I see sum still and many others that were apart of those convose still posting screenies without spoiler tags or anything and hence forth are still making it so you have to scroll more than youd expect + deformatting the board's layout a lil still.

    Seriously...spoilers arent hard to use peeps...jest type [/SPOILER] at the end of your list of pics and/or quoted config. & put
    before it all.

    PLZ I urge greatly for others posting in this thread to help maintain a safe and clean and friendly environment to all those around you.

    I have a question about the confiigurator 1.3.2. If I click save/load there are NO presets but yet there are presets (both defualt and user added) in the preset folder of both configurator and game folder. How do I load them? thanks

    Borderland has a very bad quality shadows. I play with shadows off because from it hurts eyes :)Why you use high sharpening? Modify it in photoshop or use high value luma sharpen?

    Finished the game. Thanxs to SweetFX, I enjoyed the graphics. It got rid of much of the blurriness.
    Re-sized from 2560x1600

    Cool :) Nice screen Mancubus :)
    Thanks for trying pal :)
    I'll install the game later, i guess a bit more sharpening will eliminate the blur :)

    Sorry for offtopic but we have almost same rigs...What do you do in bios to get 4ghz? Is it only raising multiplier to 40? I'm very2 newbie in OC thing..

    Brilliant shot! Did you only use SweetFX and the game's own modes or anything "on top"?

    What were the settings used by Jim2point0/NeoEnigma on those promotional screen shots of Borderlands 2 and Dishonored? They look incredible!

    The settings on that page are not the promotional ones, but my personal settings which are a bit darker. But if you go to that page, I explain in the description how to make the settings "lighter." Follow that and you'll get the look in the promotional ones.

  18. I'd prefer to see some comparison shots. Because to me it seems like not much was changed compared to original.

    ---

    Guys, is it only me or others do encounter same issues with DX10/11 games, like:

    - I can switch SFX on/off only on the third-fourth click of the <ScrollLock> key
    - Often nothing happens after changing settings and switching back to game, new settings are not read. Pressing <Break> doesn't help.

    Right now it uses an internal format to store the different presets. Yeah.. I most likely need to do some changes to that.

    While I'm in here, I can throw out a link to another project I'm working on, a sweetfx configuration database. The layout is still a bit messy, and the functions are still a bit spartan, but it works well enough. If anyone is good at design and CSS, I'd gladly accept some help :D
