    All about SweetFX

    SweetFX is one of those "Mystical" things that many of us are reluctant to try. In my quest to improve my CLoD visual experience, I stumbled upon this sight that explains it and uses many actual screenshots to reinforce all the technical talk.

    http://delightlylinux.wordpress.com/...-shader-suite/

    I recommend it highly. It has separate links to all the different features of SweetFX.

    Does this work with Cliffs of Dover? I thought it was not compatable with the game's new AA.

    Works fine with the new in-game FXAA. Doesn't like the windows update KB2670838, which comes with IE10.

    Good to know. I have gotten rid of that update, and I don't use IE anyways, and don't have version 10 installed.

    Re: All about SweetFX

    From review and test/play, I have found that a sweet spot with SweetFX is the ensure SMAA is enabled, and use it complemented with Nvidia's FXAA only.

    This is it, all other AA variants found in Nvidia/Inspector are off, including CLOD ingame AA. With SweetFX SMAA and Nvidia FXAA only, CLOD appears to look best for my rig with stellar FPS numbers and good contact dot spotting. Annoying distant shimmer is quite reduced and I can fly for long time without eye weirdness. Note I am running triplehead thus not using downsampling (manual or DSR).

    Re: All about SweetFX

    has someone come around to making his own preset?

    HDR gives me lovely lighting, color and contrast, but unfortunately the horizon is just an intense Fog of war. I turned it off again because it was too annoying.
    I basically left it at vibrance on and lumasharpen on. Bloom is terrible, the clouds looked like whipped cream, save for the edged.

    Re: All about SweetFX

    Hi guys. Good to see some other fellows obsessed with visuals.

    I have a custom SweetFX that I use on EVERY GAME. It's ONLY to enhance what's already there. It shouldn't change the original art at all.
    I plan to test it with CoD in the next 24 hours, and if it works, I'll post a dropbox download here.

    Re: All about SweetFX

    Well, I've gotten it half working, but the menus get artifacts for some reason. I've never seen that with SweetFX.

    I'm about to try running it with the OpenGL wrapper. Unless I am dumber than I thought, CLoD is a 32bit exe, right?

    I'm also looking for confs.ini tweaks. There's some settings in there that I don't recognize and have no idea what they're for, nor do I know the maximum accepted values.

    I searched for some, but they're all performance tweaks, and not quality.

    Re: All about SweetFX

    A new version of ReShade (v 3.0.3) is a major update of this utility. It is used while you have the game running and is nothing short of splendid!

    Simply install it, and once in the game, press CTRL+F2 to start the tutorial. Changes are instantaneous.

    Download it here:

    http://reshade.me/

    EDIT (20161028): When it works, it's great. It always works well the first time I start up after booting the computer. But, on my system, I sometimes get a launcher fail from which there is no recovery when I leave the game while using DeBander (The only thing I use). Computer restart is my best remedy.

    I've removed the reshade added files from the game directory and everything has returned to normal, with rings around the sun again. Be forewarned...

    Re: All about SweetFX

    Trying to get Reshade 3.0.6 tu run with the game, it's not working.
    It says 44 aspects still need to be compiled at the beginning but that window cuts out in the main menu and nothing happens anymore.
    Do I just have to be more patient?

    When you install it just add the shaders that you use. If you add all of them you'll get huge loading time in the game.
