/*-----------------------------------------------------------. / Description / '------------------------------------------------------------/ Game: Any SweetFX version: 1.4 Author: CeeJay.dk Description: These are the default settings for SweetFX 1.4 They smoothen jagged edges with SMAA anti-aliasing, sharpen the image with LumaSharpen and make the colors slightly more vibrant with Vibrance. 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.

also: plese forgive the typos. my PC is in my lounge room and leaning over a wireless keyboard on a coffee table from a sofa with a bad back is both painful and distracting.

in recent months I have been steering away from SweetFX and usiong reshade. I prefer reshade as it performs more powerful shaders and also supports OpegGL (2.0 and above)

Thanks for your feedback. @Raztaman. This is not a crowning achievement as a preset for me. This is infact my firs preset. I may redo it to better reflect the feedback given. maybe I will switch to Reshade (assuming this game won't turn into a slideshow on reshade). Hopefully now that this game is no longer lumbering in Early Access Hell there is better optimization for mods like Reshade and Sweetfx. One thing I noticed as far as sharpening is concerned is if I run in 4K DSR the sharpening has to be set twice as high as it only has helf the effect. the up side of this is that sharpening then doesn't affect antialiasing, but a good GPU would be a requirement. I have not played this game in donkeys years, but should give it another go now that I have my new GTX1080 and I should make another preset and also investigate Reshade.

Also has VERY bad performance drop for sweetfx, probably because the game's not optimized for this kind of thing yet, at all.

Too much saturation, too much sharpening.
