Sniper Elite 3

SweetFX game notes:
Extract into - \Steam\SteamApps\common\Sniper Elite 3\bin and the SweetFX folder also into - \Steam\SteamApps\common\Sniper Elite 3 That's because the injector searches for files in both directories.

@Merlena It was actually DX11.2 that broke SweetFX for win8.1. DX11.1 was included with WIndows 8 and that OS has no problems whatsoever running SweetFX in DX11.

My fault. I was using symlink to try other methods out, so it could "mirror" both files. Typing mistakes >< Dammit, can't even edit the comments.

Dxgi is the correct one. Sorry for the typo. :/ Feel like an idiot :/

Thanks for the solutions Merlena. I am confused on the dxgii versus the dxgi. Do I rename the eFX's dxgi.dll to dxgii.dll, regsvr32 it, THEN place it in the System32 folder?

Last resort, not recommended.

This removes restrictions, such as UAC and so, making you so to say owner and Administrator over everything, fully exposed. Use at own risk.

1. Open Powershell (as an admin)
2. Enter Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" -Name "EnableLUA" -Value "0"

setting EnableLUA to false (0) prevents Windows from notifying you that an app is installing or trying to make changes to the computer. This can be a bad thing, because you don't really know what it may be installing, or trying to change (it could be trying to change registry settings.

SweetFX has difficulites with 8.1, this why:

The file "dxgii" is a dynamic link libary,part of the DX9, DX10, DX10.1, DX11, DX11.1.

Windows 8 and 8.1 uses the new DirectX 11.1, which is an updated API of the DirectX runtime.

The issue is that when injected into memory of the game it will start to load the shaders that makes this critical - it conflicts mainly with HLSL which is C++ based shaders, and these injectors are compiled by D3DCompiler. Loading unsupported shaders with wrong libery file (dgxii.dll) (Originally named dgxi), what happens? HSDL is created by both DX runtimes, which is updated as said in W8.

Solutions:
1. The file should be signed with (;cmd syntax: regsvr32 "dxgii.dll") you need full admin rights by Windows.
2. Turn off logging in SweetFX/eFX.
3. Turn off SMAA/FXAA or forced AA. (These needs the correct bits first.)
4. RUN IT AS ADMINISTRATOR.
5. Compatibility the executable as running in Windows 7, and as Administrator.
6. Take ownership of all files within the game folder.
7. Disable overlays.
8. Use x64, x86; the correct dxgii.dll in the folders for the game. Do not include d3d9.dll.

¤##Sign the dynamic libary file¤##

- Win+R "CMD.exe"; enter.
Type syntax: regsvr32 dxgi.dll

¤## x64 bit ¤##
Place dxgii into ROOT\Windows\System32\
DO NOT OVERWRITE THE ORIGINAL DXGI.

RadeonPro is just a waste of time and only supports SweetFX up to 1.4 (or last time I tried it).

Neither RadeonPro nor eFX bundle work with WIN8.1 64bit. Did anyone with WIN8.1 64-bit get it to work?
