Preset description:
Use ninjas Sweetfx injector. you can download the full package here: http://ninjafada.com/ffxiv/ARR/p3/p3v9.rar extract in the game folder where ffxiv.exe is My personal preset for much enhanced detail for good gaming and enthusiast pc rigs. If too colorful adjust vibrancy settings in setting preset between 0.5 and 0.1 I usually run 0.5 or 0.3. 0.3 is a bit less colorful but I like it also.

Your p3v9.rar file is corrupt according to WinRAR. Please help!

Actually the .exe that runs the game not the one that launches it is in the GAME folder. So if sweetfx is in your boot folder its in the wrong place usually games start via the games .exe in this games case it uses a launcher which then redirects to the game .exe in the GAME folder. so having it in Boot wont do anything as thats just the launcher. Its not the exe that retrieves the DX data.

Also, Not sure why SweetFX would be installed into the GAME folder when the .exe file that launches the launcher/game is in the BOOT folder. I thought SweetFX had to be in the folder with the file that actually starts the game...

"Did you rename the preset "SweetFX_Settings" And overwrite the one that comes with the injector and have you updated your Direct X 9? Also it has to be in the GAME folder its probably crashing due to you needing to update DX9. Post back if this helps."

I've done all of this and FFXIV:ARR crashes right after logging in. Any ideas?

Do you need to turn off the in-game HDR to use the sweetfx one? What would be your choice of preference.

Did found the reason: Im Using Philips amBX Speaker Devices and in the Taskmanager it said that the process used by the driver(amBx related) do the problem actually just deleting them in the TaskManager and voilà : It works!

No you can turn off FXAA in game if you like as SMAA is better optimized and does the same thing better. In the next 4 years SMAA will become the gaming industry standard as FXAA is now. Currenty the industry is behind the times again and gamers need an injector to get SMAA. Crysis 3 runs SMAA and a couple other titles being now released are beginning to use it.

Any reason for FXAA over SMAA? Otherwise great. All other DweetFX I tried using crashed.

cant start the game in combo with the injector - d3d9.dll keeps me crashing in the GAME folder - but within the boot it works .--but no effect
