    Can we have comparative screens for your SweetFX preset, like in this Website (http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/) ?

    Edit : Well done !!! It looks like an adapted version of "Realistic Preset".

    oh? i did not base it on that. i was just making my SweetFX and used the settings I saw fit :D
    Also, about the textures, do you like them? I think they look pretty good, and the textures match well with my SFX :)

    Will make comparison shots later, be back soon with some

    I am enjoying the patch very much. One small hiccup though. I do not know how to restore my billboards and signs to default images/textures. The ones in game now are via some foreign language or commercial !

    The sweetfx doesn't work for me.It never does. I guess it's because I have the game on steam. Maybe you could show a screenshot of where to put the files as I think I have some files in my bin that shouldn't be there.

    Do you have Windows 8.1 ? If it's the case you have to use Radeon Pro.

    For instance I don't see differences for the textures. I didn't really pay attention before so... I would like comparison too ^^.

    I'll add some screens because it's only under rain.

    Nice try, but I still prefer K-putt'e preset, with gaussian.

    In order to see the difference in Aiden's clothing, you need to use his default clothes
    I have not modified other like the Gangster.
    Select his default clothing in the store and you will see how i made his coat look. ALso I changed his mask, made it darker, same for default Cap. I only modded his default clothing :)
    Also, if you feel that gaussian is a requirement, why don't you take K-Putts Value for Gaussian and enter it into my SweetFx? I bet you will like mine better then! lol :D

    If you want to compare here you go, I also made his hair sharper along with his face
    All Textures were supersampled in Paint.net using MIP MAPS
    Both were without SFX
    Do Not know why the shot for with came out like that but at least you are able to see the whole change in textures. :D

    For textures, I think it can't really say which one is better. Indeed, it's more detailed. But is it normal it's so dark ?

    For the hair I don't see. I especially like the pullover.

    I think It would look better with a farther view.

    For the SweetFX are there tools to easily adjust presets ?
    Your Sweet-FX looks indeed like K-Putt'e because it doesn't change the main atmosphere given by Lunahya and Marduk.

    I think It could be a first version that needs to be refined.

    (I posted with K-Putt'e preset in page 21).

    Here is a good comparison of your preset :

    Mr. Marduk, when you'll release the next version of the patch please include all performance fixes and lighting for train/helicopter which you shared separately and also as a personal preference if you can please upgrade the original Signs folder to Hi-Def textures. Graphics/_Textures/Signs ! Thank you for a great mod !

    With the gaussian blur, it's ok.

    No, I use 7. if it does work for you can you screenshot your bin were the files are located? I think I have files that should't be in there that might be interfering with sweetfx.

    It's a great honor ! Indeed I like the glow around the lights. I just went out and saw it on lamps ^^

    I already did some modifications to include it but thank you for your script (I think I'll not be alone to like it).

    Edit : There is a big mistake in Bloom Settings : BloomWidth : 0.0150, not 0.150 !
    I think bloom should be tuned down a little.

    Use Brightness = 35.

    I don't know if it's because of my overclocking and SSD, but I now run the normal version decently (about 30 fps and very few stutter) with everything to ultra apart shadows to high and SMAA.

    I thought it was for Geforce GTX 780 3gb. I am astonished.

    Did you work on Crysis ? If it's the case you are indeed a legend ^^

    guys, do yourselves a favor and enable triple buffering in the driver, and if you want, v-sync... I get 40-60 fps now with all settings ultra shadows high and high textures with temporal smaa... Watch_Dogs never felt so smooth :D

    Hey, thanks for the download link, bro. And yes, that was me. How did you know?

    In retrospect I don't regret any minute of my time spent tweaking Crysis to be able to make it playable and pretty for many people without recommended specs back in the day. All done with the help of a team of great tweakers and app programmers, working together from the community and for the community.
