    As above..

    I have been using SweetFx for years. Had to repair my game files in BF4 and when finished SweetFx no longer works.

    Ive re-installed SweetFX using the same methods Ive used before and it just wont start.

    Really confusing. In configurator it says active. When I hit Scroll lock key in game (145) no change. I'm usually really good at this sorta stuff but since I cannot figure this out I ask for help from the SweetFX gods.

    Just tried it out,works fine.This is what I used to test it out,I made them up for a different game but just follow directions in download and use the BF4 folder.

    b.To use the presets I done up.Alt tab out of game, go to game default install folder(EG:C:\Steam\steamapps\common\TheGolfClub2) and under the Mod ini folder selete anyone mod.ini file ,open from 1 thru 10 and copy and replace it with the mod.ini file in the default folder(EG:C:\Steam\steamapps\common\TheGolfClub2).
    c.Go back to game .Open reshade (shift + F2) and under home hit reload and new preset will be loaded.
