We'll see what they decide to do, I don't use sweet fx since my FPS are already too low but some color tweak really improve the beauty of the game I whish we could do this in game.

Hello

I'm just posting here to say that SweetFX seems to have issues running along side ATI Tray Tools. I'm unsure of the specific tweaks that causes MW:O to lock on start-up while using both SweetFX and ATI-TT, testing is still ongoing. I can confirm I had SweetFX properly installed for it worked when I disabled ATI-TT, however it did not give a performance boost comparable to ATI-TT.

Here's my (partial) dxdiag dump:

Spoiler


With a slaughtered user.cfg, ATI-TT and running MW:O through a program called Razer Game Booster (the simplified explanation is that it temporarily shuts down unneeded processes to free up memory for the game being run), I get an FPS of around 20-25 in Forest Colony, River City & Tourmaline, about 10-15 in Caustic & Frozen City, and Alpine is practically unplayable. Still suffer lag spikes when the action heats up in any map.

If anyone has some insight on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Short version:
Looked at your specs, You have 504 MB of dedicated video memory and after every match your processor is on the side of the road pukeing it's guts out cause you ran it too hard.

Short short version:
You need to get atleast a budget desktop gaming rig.

Short Short Short Version:
real computer = playable game.

This looks a lot like you just turned the contrast up.

Which is fine, contrast can help.

If you want basic image adjustments, try SweetFX with everything but Tonemap, Vibrance, and Curves off. These three can do a lot while not bothering the GPU much (like SMAA or HDR would). Or, you could try using your GPU control panel -- for no FPS loss at all.

Sweet FX WINODWS 8.1 USERS!!!
if you are getting the error "yadda yadda create dxgifactory2 could not be located yadda yadda..... d3d11.dll" and either crash OR error, still loads with no "magic." Delete the file located in bin32 dxgi.dll

Perhaps someone here can comment as to why this works, but im guessing the deleted file seeks to find the other which appears to be a dx11 file. This game running only dx9 atm, shouldn't care.
But what do I know? Im just a tinkering carpenter/mechanic/machinist.

BTW windows 8.1 can suck it.

anyone else noticed missing "Bloom-effect" after one of the latest patches?
Colors are fine, it's just bloom/HDR effect

Isn't SweetFX considered a hack by the mods/admins?

nah, the only thing that they don't like is removing film grain.
SweetFX isn't more than increasing contrast atm.

...The game look so0 much better - check terror therma with sweetFX, it's the only reason why I don't disconnect anymore :angry:

**resurrects the thread**

I tried using the latest sweetfx and it causes MWO to crash on startup (the main client starts up and then immediately quits with no error message, boot patcher works just fine). Is it no longer compatible with MWO?

Any modifications or just copy-paste of the 2.0 files? I'm gonna try as soon as I return home!

for the settings above just copy and replace the following @ sweetfx settings.

these settings are just basic and seem a bit dark at some maps - I'm going to write a complete new "how to" later this week especially for the finetuning...

/*-----------------------------------------------------------.
/ Choose effects /
'-----------------------------------------------------------*/
// Effects are listed in the order that they are applied.
// Set to 1 for ON or 0 for OFF
#define USE_ASCII 0 //[0 or 1] Ascii : Converts the image to Ascii-art.
#define USE_CARTOON 0 //[0 or 1] Cartoon : "Toon"s the image.
#define USE_SMAA 1 //[0 or 1] SMAA Anti-aliasing : Smoothens jagged lines using the SMAA technique.
#define USE_FXAA 0 //[0 or 1] FXAA Anti-aliasing : Smoothens jagged lines using the FXAA technique.
#define USE_EXPLOSION 0 //[0 or 1] Explosion : Scatters the pixels, making the image look fuzzy.
#define USE_CA 0 //[0 or 1] Chromatic Aberration : Mimics the look of a cheap camera lens, by distorting the colors.
#define USE_ADVANCED_CRT 0 //[0 or 1] Advanced CRT : Simulates an old CRT TV display. (has a very high performance cost)
#define USE_PIXELART_CRT 0 //[0 or 1] PixelArt CRT : Scanlines for pixel art (high performance cost)
#define USE_BLOOM 1 //[0 or 1] Bloom : Makes bright lights bleed their light into their surroundings (relatively high performance cost)
#define USE_HDR 1 //[0 or 1] HDR : Not actual HDR - It just tries to mimic an HDR look (relatively high performance cost)
#define USE_LUMASHARPEN 1 //[0 or 1] LumaSharpen : Sharpens the image.

#define USE_LEVELS 0 //[0 or 1] Levels : Sets a new black and white point. This increases contrast but causes clipping. Use Curves instead if you want to avoid that.
#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_MONOCHROME 0 //[0 or 1] Monochrome : Monochrome makes the colors disappear.
#define USE_COLORMATRIX 0 //[0 or 1] Color Matrix : Allows color modification using a user-defined color matrix.
#define USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN 1 //[0 or 1] Lift Gamma Gain : Adjust brightness and color of shadows, midtones and highlights.
#define USE_TONEMAP 1 //[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 0 //[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_FILMGRAIN 0 //[0 or 1] Film Grain : Adds film grain to the image.
#define USE_DITHER 0 //[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_BORDER 0 //[0 or 1] Border : Can be used to create letterbox borders around the image.
#define USE_SPLITSCREEN 0 //[0 or 1] Splitscreen : Enables the before-and-after splitscreen comparison mode. (Only partially working right now)

#define USE_TRANSITION 0 //[0 or 1] Transition : Shows a welcome screen and then transitions to the regularly scheduled programming

#define USE_DISPLAY_DEPTH 0 //[0 or 1] Display Depth : Enables the possibility to display the depth buffer - You will still need to toogle it on/off with (*) in-game

#define USE_CUSTOM 0 //[0 or 1] Custom : Write your own shader by editing custom.h, and then enable it here.

Giving this a shot too, though I forgot to take a before/after. The colors do look alot more vibrant and real now, it's quite noticable.

- couple notes: during install had issue with missing dll, had to install this: www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=30679
- am not sure whether the bin32 or bin64 directory is the correct one, I just put the files in both places & copied the changes to the sweetfx settings into both respective sweetfx folders.
