  2. The "Author" name is: .Unnamed
    Thats my other nickname, so dont think i stole the settings :O_o: I use that name in games like COD, CS 1.6, etc. I forget to change the name :roflmao:

  3. Will be very good if anyone of you can upload some previews with "ultra" settings, I think this "sweetfx" deserves that :roflmao:

    Does this work with Windows 8.1?
     
  7. Doesn't work on W8.1... Like all other sweetfx... :(
     
  8. For me is too dark, Bahrain is terrible
     
  9. For Windows 8 users, type "sweetfx windows 8.1" in google, there you can find some posts with the fix.

  10. Depends on each monitor, like i said, you can reduce "vibrance" and "curves" values to your taste xD

  11. I dont want to use RadeonPro... :/
     
  12. And what if you don't have any modding programs...? How to install these, actually?
     
  13. I think you most use radeonpro to use sweetfx in windows 8, sorry i dont know

  14. "I think you most use radeonpro to use sweetfx in windows 8, sorry i dont know"

    I think too.
    I trying Radeonpro, and it work ! But, launch Radeonpro, and launch the game just for Sweetfx... I prefer launch my game, and radeonpro...
    sorry for my english :s
     
  15. i used it some months ago, but i dont like to use it :/

  17. Hi,

    could you also do a sweetfx for NASCAR 14 please? I would really appreciate it!
     
  18. I think you can use this sweetfx for NASCAR 14, i use the sweetfx 1.5 for NASCAR (i have it to), so check how looks with this sweetfx.
    Neveraless i have this settings (old) i used for NASCAR:

    Replace everything inside the "sweetfx_settings.txt" file (made a backup first)

    Please note when tweaking settings that higher numbers does not always equal better (nor does lower).
    Finding the best settings for your game and your taste is about finding just the right amount to apply.

    If you made a good setttings preset please share it with your friends, on forums and websites,
    and/or submit it to the SweetFX Settings Database : http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/
