SweetFX in newest build

Discussion in 'rFactor 2' started by MeqTrader, Jul 25, 2014.

  1. Guys,

    right after the latest update (778) my PC crashed and I had to do a re-install of my machine (I'll admit, user error). Now to add insult to injury I also accidentally deleted my DATA disk which held the rFactor2 install (as well as my Steam folder). All in all a re-install of Windows 7 turned out to be a full blown re-install. Now here's my problem:

    Since I run NVidia 3D (which means 720p resolution) on a 84" beamer screen I need to get as much out of the graphics engine as possible and therefor run the SweetFX addon. However since the move to the 32/64 build with seperate directories I can't seem to find the right spot to place the files. Anyone here able to tell me where I should be dropping the content of the SweetFX addon ?

  2. OK, I just managed to find out the solution: just like before unpack everything in the "Gl4dia70rZ SweetFX package" (as found in the download section of this website) into the root folder of rFactor2 however instead of copying the core directory from the package into the core folder of the rFactor2 install move the content into the Bin32 dir. I know this means "loosing out" on the 64bit part but I have not found a 64bit alternative.

    FYI the Core folder within the package only contains 1 file: "d3d9.dll" so just move this 1 file if you do not like merging directories.
  3. Going to try for install SweetFx x64 in Bin 64 folder like you say Meq.

    It´s not enought accurate like for x32 bits tool but i need earn fps too with Ati 3tv.

    Since arrive home tonight, could you try this similar tool eFx? if this newest tool works in windows 8.1 then i would move to there at same time.

    eFx tool...
