Shader used: SweetFX 2.0
Preset description:
Courtesy of Hodi a great video of the preset in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QqxhmaWyIE Please note this preset is intended to be used at default gamma level (ie slider in the middle). If you have adjusted your gamma level either return it to default or follow the instructions in the comments in editing rgb_lift if you wish to change the darkness paramaters. Download Reshade + Sweetfx 2.0 Beta here: http://reshade.me/ Follow the instructions to install reshade then copy the preset into the corresponding SweetFX directory in the game folder. Scroll lock to enable/disable Print screen for screenshots Works on Win 8.1 :) Please ensure you don't have any other applications which hook enabled such as Fraps/Dxtory/Afterburner as this will conflict with Sweetfx (Disable steam overlay as well). Manual install instructions: 1. Go to www.reshade.me and download the Reshade + Sweetfx 2.0 pack 2. Unzip and copy the sweetfx folder, reshade64.dll, reshade.fx and sweetfx.fx files to the witcher exe directory in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\bin\x64 3. Rename reshade64.dll to d3d11.dll 4. Delete SweetFX_Settings file in the sweetfx folder. 5. Download my settings here 6. Rename the settings file to SweetFX_Settings and copy it into the sweetfx folder in the game directory. V1.1: -Changes to gamma settings to provide more realistic nights without impacting daytime colouring/shading. Should make the torch useful now in darker forests. -All screenshots updated to reflect 1.1 settings. The toggle function currently isn't working in reshade 0.18.40 and the witcher 3 (undoubtedly will be fixed in a next release), as long as it says successful in the reshade prompt at the start, then everything is working.

Probably I found a solution too: I'm still using this preset but with another older ReShade version, from here:
And it seems it is working.

12 Jul 21:46 CEST

Imp. I had the same problem till yesterday. The fix i found: witcher3.exe run as administrator and windows 7 compatible mode. Hairwork disable, fullscreen mode, no v-sync, and i deleted nvidia geforce experience.

8 Jul 14:20 CEST

After last updates and DLCs the game began to crash in the inventory. I tryed all recommendations from this thread:
Nothing helped. Also I tryed clean re-install drivers, the game, etc and found the root cause. The crash causes by this SweetFX preset.

Also the game crashes when trying to take a screenshot with SFX.

It worked fine in older versions of the game (no crashes at all). Do anybody have same problem? Is it possible to solve it?

reshade64.dll renamed to d3d11.dll

PC specs: i7-4770K / 8 DDR3 2133Mhz / MSI GTX980Ti / driver 368.39 / Win 8.1 x64

14 Jun 20:13 CEST

Thanks, it's a good preset. I changed it a little bit to my preference, so it isn't that cold, but it's a good basis.

24 Sep 12:47 CEST

If you use instructions in this preset and game crash, may be search x64 folder for file, called "dsound.dll" and if you have it, rename it to something else (i.e. "dsound.dll.off") and try to launch game again.

20 Sep 04:07 CEST

got it working!! had to rename ReShade64.dll to "d3d11.dll". amazing work..thank you

9 Sep 10:43 CEST

can't work anymore ... why ? i lunch the game and 1 sec after,.. crash so someone can help me please ?? my game is in 1.08 version.

31 Aug 13:40 CEST

This preset makes shadows and other shades look really good, but at the same time it washes some of the colour out a lil bit.

To me it's a really tough choice between using this one and vanilla, as this ones has really nice looking darks, but vanilla has slightly more colour fidelity.

27 Aug 21:43 CEST

Disregard my previous post, I got it working by using an older Reshade pack.

But I am having slow downs alot ingame, playing on ULTRA -AA @ 4K on:
i7-5930K @ 4.2GHz
16GB DDR4 @ 2333MHz
EVGA GTX 980 Ti SLi @ 1481/3900
Samsung 850 PRO
Windows 8.1

27 Aug 13:03 CEST

Also the latest Reshade pack does not have sweetfx.fx as mentioned by Jonathan. Are we meant to use a lower version Reshade?

27 Aug 12:04 CEST

does this work with latest W3 patch and is it better than e3FX mod from nexus site?

14 Aug 21:48 CEST

PLEASE UPDATE your "install instructions" to match the new RESHADE 1.0 file structure. For instance: RESHADE 1.0 has NO "sweetfx.fx" file...

27 Jul 12:25 CEST

so, i have the game and last patch (1.7)

WHATEVER i do, the game crashes and i did it exactly how you write it. without sweetfx everything fine, but when i follow your way, the game starts for 1 sec and crashes :( please help!!!

21 Jul 22:57 CEST

For people that experience crash when changing video to fullscrean:

do not use filename dxgi.dll as is here in instruction. Change it to d3d11.dll.
With this I can finally play in full screen.

20 Jun 02:12 CEST

Really impressive ! Does it work with Windows 7 x64 plz ? :)

8 Jun 14:54 CEST

You can now download latest version of Reshade, toggling on/off now works with new version.

8 Jun 13:27 CEST

Thanx for the clarification.
So it was added at the same time the DLC was added with an GOG Galaxy Update. I didnt noticed that.

7 Jun 05:42 CEST

Just for note, it's not the DLC or the 1.05 patch or anything game-related that adds the new files. It's actually the GOG Galaxy client, and the most likely reason the files are being added is for support of their upcoming overlay.

5 Jun 21:10 CEST

YEAH it is working again even with 3D-Vision fix, Flugan did an update!!!
For those who had troubles download this: http://www.share-online.biz/dl/VK61JHPNTE6P and overwrite all your files.
If you have no 3D-Vision simply delete d3d11.dll and the ShaderFixes folder for not running into problems with crash to desctop errors relate to the 3D-fix. AND: Do not forget to include this profile (because the archiv did contain my preset and my be ou do not like it ^^)
Confirmed on Win 8.1 64 Bit.

5 Jun 19:26 CEST

@Losti Thanks man. Hope a new patch will come along soon for you.

5 Jun 19:09 CEST

Working but not with 3D Vision fix :-(

5 Jun 18:52 CEST

Can anyone confirm if preset works with the 1.05 patch?

5 Jun 18:51 CEST

That is correct. Did those and preset worked. When I said game worked when I deleted the file I meant preset also worked.

5 Jun 14:36 CEST


I didnt write that.
But also if you delete d3d11.dll from the dlc the preset will work again.

But i wrote u have to rename reshade64.dll to d3d9.dll instead of dxgi.dll to make it work. Thats because the DLC installs a d3d11.dll and a dxgi.dll, wich is not compatible with reshade and reverse.

Thats a fact.

5 Jun 14:21 CEST


It is normal, just keep it on default setting, in the middle.

5 Jun 13:46 CEST

Using this preset, I looked at the gamma settings, and I can't show the image in the black circle that is supposed to appear slightly, regardless if the slider is all the way right or all the way left.

Is this normal?

4 Jun 18:10 CEST


if you deleted it, than no preset lol.

4 Jun 17:22 CEST

I deleted d3d11.dll and game works.

4 Jun 17:12 CEST

It is working for me verry well: Win 8.1 Pro 64 Bit. May be this is related to my 3D-Fix with an expternal DLL from Flugan....You can try this even without 3D .... You can try this, dont forgett to update the sweetFX_Settings.txt with this preset here .... http://www.share-online.biz/dl/M8M7EFPNBD

4 Jun 17:05 CEST

@Losti well this version totally fucked up the game couldn't even launch it.

4 Jun 12:21 CEST

Use ReShade 0.18.6 for working ToggleKey . http://www.mediafire.com/download/5lw6hb85p9038as/ReShade+0.18.6+Public+Beta+with+SweetFX+2.0+Beta+8.7z . Just extract all to your x64 directory from wither 3, rename the ReShade64.dll to dxgi.dll and paste the config-content to SweetFX_settings.txt in the SweetFX Folder.

4 Jun 11:56 CEST


You are wrong.
The DLC update added a d3d11.dll in the bin/x64 directory so Reshade wont work or will crash Witcher 3.


4 Jun 11:40 CEST

I wasn't able to take screenshots after the latest update (less than 24 hours ago). Anyone else having the same problems?

4 Jun 11:26 CEST


dlc have nothing to do with the preset working or not.

4 Jun 00:45 CEST

After the Nilfgardian Armor DLC the installation instructions dont work anymore!

Rename ReShade64.dll to d3d9.dll instead of dxgi.dll to make it work!

3 Jun 22:36 CEST

Could you post your ingame graphic settings? To me still looks a bit yellow-ish. Do you have Vignette etc activated?

3 Jun 12:32 CEST

Hi i really want to use this preset but everytime i try to run witcher with in on it says succeed then it crashes to desktop straightaway.

3 Jun 10:04 CEST


so you're saying the preset should be made for each monitor? calibrate your monitor. Problem solve.

2 Jun 15:49 CEST

Really nice but way too dark in caves and other interiors, it's literally pitch black and even with a torch equipped you can only see 5 foot in front of you.

2 Jun 07:06 CEST

@Krzych; @Slawek56703
If you're playing a steam version, you can switch between on\off by pressing scr lk while you are in the steam overlay.

2 Jun 04:19 CEST


it doesnt work at the momment until reshade update. Amazing what could find or answer if you know how to READ.

2 Jun 03:37 CEST

sorry I ask but how to on/off ?

1 Jun 20:43 CEST

I created account especially to comment this preset. Surely the best one I have seen. No affect on FPS, natural colors without any bad effects and crazy sharpening that kill your eyes, and what is most important here, it has absolutely no effect on on in-game menu, interface, font and letters. Very most of presets affects it all very badly and nearly destroys font and letters, which is terrible in the game like The Witcher, where you are reading a lot all the time. It needs only toggle function working, like all presets, but this is really great job! Thanks.

1 Jun 17:51 CEST

Really the best settings you can find here to make the game look naturalistic and color correctly as possible. Removes yellow tint without adding purpl one. I tried a lot fx settings, but this is really the right one. Highly recommended!
p.s. Depending on the monitor settings, you may need to raise a little ingame gamma setting.

31 May 21:19 CEST

@cvax i love you man

31 May 12:10 CEST

This one looks very good but It's not working quite correctly for me. When using, the colours change like it should but trees in the distant get very edgy and low quality and Geralts chainmail is flimmering and edges gets very unsmooth in general. Any idea what the issue might be?

30 May 21:12 CEST

Thanks hodi added to the preset description as it shows it off better than my original video :)

29 May 23:45 CEST

Comparison. :D

29 May 16:13 CEST


Screenshots taken with this preset.

28 May 17:19 CEST

If you are wondering how this preset look compared to other presets, see my mega comparisons post here.


Over 400 screenshots comparing all the major presets in identical scenarios so you can finally get a real apples to apples comparison.

27 May 14:09 CEST

New screenshots. Love it

27 May 01:28 CEST


Unfortunately the settings were calibrated on my display and i've not had any issues indoors which is always an issue with sweetfx as it can't account for differences in displays. Assuming your in game gamma levels are at default, as suggested previously you should just raise the rgb_lift values under liftgammagain to a level that is acceptable to you.

26 May 11:38 CEST

Preset is good but incredibly dark in all the indoor areas in the game.

25 May 22:55 CEST

oh nvm.. it was fraps the problem ^^

25 May 22:52 CEST

Update!! please!

25 May 11:25 CEST

Game wont even start now

25 May 06:16 CEST

On my setup I have everything maxed out.


you need to open the game, then alt tab out and open the sweetfx settings txt file. In that near the top where you can enable each variable, change the three items (liftgammagain, vibrance and curves) to 0 and save, then alt tab back in and sweetfx will be off. Do the same but change the same three variables back to 1 and it will be re-enabled.

25 May 00:26 CEST

recommended ingame settings?

25 May 00:17 CEST

Awesome work :D one even the best Preset ive seen so far !! Made a video to show its awesomeness :
Enjoy ! :)

24 May 22:40 CEST

Anyone know how to temporarily disable SweetFx? ss-89 mentioned: "To manually toggle on off is a bit more of a pain and involves alt tabbing out of the game changing the sweetfx variables to off." Does anyone know which variables he was referring to?

24 May 15:57 CEST

Hi peeps, first id like to thank you for this preset, beautifull colors^^, I've tested every other preset, and also testes this "http://www.hardwareluxx.de/community/f146/sweetfx-p0werp1ay-993812-10.html#post23494904" wish is the best preset ever made in the net if you like E3 trailer feel. anyways still prefer yours but what i ofund lacking in your preset versus the german one is "4.0" lumasharpening! trust me i tryed with your preset and now the game looks heavenly ;)

24 May 06:17 CEST

Really amazing work! The only thing is needed is a toggle switch.

23 May 22:12 CEST

OK problem solved, it was Dx !!!

23 May 21:18 CEST


thx for the preset. great work. but for me its too dark. but i dont want to change gamma, i want more brightness. how can i increase it?

23 May 18:58 CEST

@Laurent I'm not sure have you tried renaming dxgi to d3d11.


SMAA isn't enabled in this preset so I'm not sure what you're referring to?

23 May 14:11 CEST

@ss-89 SMAA makes the texts a little bit blurry. Can I fix this or is it just because of SMAA?

23 May 11:58 CEST

Hello, i beg you to help me, i can't launch any sweet fx, i have this screen when i launch the game :


It lasts 1/2 sec, then go back to desk...

Can you please helpme :(

I am Nvidia, no fraps and tryed everything...

22 May 21:43 CEST

Yo, thx for the gfx :) Since the toggle isn't working, could you please describe the steps of going into the files after alt-tabbing to temporarily disable SweetFx? Just so we can know how to toggle without uninstalling :)

22 May 15:34 CEST

Not at this moment in time as I feel it's relatively balanced, however as I progress through the game if there are tweaks I feel could improve the preset then I will post an update.

22 May 14:40 CEST

Just curious, are you currently working on a v1.2 version of this preset?

22 May 11:37 CEST

Also - HBAO+ makes certain areas darker, so the gamma reduction may seem more pronounced.

22 May 09:50 CEST

Yh also curiously I wonder if some people had altered the in game gamma levels prior to using the preset as this is intended for default gamma level (ie slider in the middle). I turned the preset off, adjusted the gamma level for the image to be barely visible and then turned the preset on and exhibited the same crushed blacks and dark interiors. I'd suggest if others have this issue before adjusting rgb_lift values, to just check that in game gamma is at default.

22 May 08:22 CEST

Thank you for the tips. So far I have adjusted gamma to 0.97 and seems a reasonable compromise, since I also had problem with very dark interiors, even during the day. In caves or during the night I still have to use the torch or Cat elixir. But as you said, it heavily depends on the monitor and its calibration, so YMMV.

22 May 01:19 CEST

Hello i made a comparison video, you can add it to the description if you like it !

21 May 23:43 CEST

Hey, really like this preset. Thanks!

It works the same with patch 1.03 for me.

I've been having an issue (since before 1.03), however, where it's stuck on "loading effect..." if the game is set to fullscreen. Both windowed modes work though. If I switch it to fullscreen after it's loaded, the game freezes. If possible, I'd like to have it in fullscreen since I get some precious FPS back. Any ideas?

For my monitor, I boosted rgb_lift values under lift gamma gain to 0.98 in the settings file which helped with the crushing darkness in some areas.

Again, thanks for the is awesome preset!

21 May 23:07 CEST

the game just wont start anymore. have closed AB, radeonpro, fraps,...

anything else I could try ?

21 May 22:07 CEST

Seems Fraps caused the problem

21 May 21:52 CEST

Have you got any other apps running which hook such as fraps, Afterburner (specifically the OSD rivatuner server), dxtory etc as they will likely cause a crash as per my description.

If not try renaming dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll

21 May 21:41 CEST

Hmm it does not work for me I just get a "Witcher 3 has stopped working" when i try to start the game with this :( It works again if I remove the "dxgi.dll" file.. Any suggestions?

21 May 21:10 CEST

Yeah, it seems was due to the latest patch, the language could only be changed from the main menu, not from ingame options... I already solved :D sorry, my bad.

Thank you very much for your work and support!

21 May 20:12 CEST


I don't have a problem indoors but I would suggest upping all three rgb_lift values under liftgammagain. It's currently at 0.93 (default is 1), keep upping it until it's to your liking. As with all presets there could be differences in monitor calibration etc so it's worth adjusting for your own setup.


I very much doubt it, could be to do with the latest patch that went through. I'm not sure how to change it back sorry!


Definitely working, tested myself, if it isn't change your resolution to a different one and then back and ensure fullscreen mode is enabled, should kick it back to life.

21 May 19:26 CEST

Excuse me but the subtitles language has changed when I installed this... is that possible? can someone help me? I need to put it back in spanish, help me please!

21 May 18:40 CEST

Can anybody confirm that it doesnt work with latest patch?

21 May 18:28 CEST

this preset is GREAT. by far the best one with a color pallet thats properly saturated. the only problem for me, however, is that the lighting indoors is horrid. the gamma is FAR too low to the point that visibility is nonexistent. For instance, in the Barons home in Velen you basically need the act potion to see anything not within a foot of a torch

21 May 16:46 CEST

NOT WORKING with Patch 1.03...

21 May 14:46 CEST

1440p video of the preset in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVGjPtj1mys

21 May 13:20 CEST

May be conflicting with Nvidia forced AA, I can't be certain though.

21 May 12:44 CEST

Does AA have to be off?

In Nvidia Control panel I have AA forced, Vsync adaptive.

In-game I think AA is off. Not at home so can't check at the moment.

I get the feeling there's a setting somewhere that is interfering, as it certainly says "successful" at launch. Just not working in-game.

21 May 11:18 CEST


Not until reshade fix the current issue I'm afraid


Under liftgammagain increase all three rgb_lift values (default is 1) if you don't want nights as bright as default but slightly brighter than current then I'd suggest around 0.96. I reduced the brightness at night in order to make the flame torch and cat eyes potion useful otherwise default nights were too bright.


Not sure I'm afraid, there was an issue with reshade 0.18.50 as the gamma was incorrect which is why it was taken down so make sure you're using 0.18.40. Otherwise I'm not sure.

21 May 09:15 CEST

It says successful on launch, but all it's done is make the game FAR darker.

Hitting scroll lock does nothing.

No Afterburner on, not even signed in to Steam.

Can't get this to work :(

21 May 08:38 CEST


Great setting, I've been playing with your present for quite a few hours and improves visual perception greatly; but I (personally) would like to increase gamma during the night. Could you point me to how to do that, please?

21 May 06:06 CEST

IS there any Way to get the TOGGLE key to work with the witcher 3 reshade???

21 May 05:16 CEST

Ignore my previous comment, everything is working great! :)

21 May 04:06 CEST

Absolutely brilliant preset. However it doesn't work in cutscenes, or doesn't appear to anyway. Is there anything that can be done?

21 May 03:43 CEST

Hi.. has anyone tried this on a GTX 780ti classified??

20 May 23:11 CEST


Nope, should work regardless of settings.


Yes that is correct.


Nope your settings are fine.


Not sure why that is tbh, fire and smoke effects work fine for me. Someone mentioned the game bugged for them and fire effects were gone but a restart sorted it.


As explained in the description the toggle function currently doesn't work in the current version of reshade with Witcher 3 but should be fixed soon, as long as it says successful on launch it is working. You should be able to notice the difference in the colour palette.

20 May 20:41 CEST

how to find out what is working correctly?

scroll lock It does not work

20 May 20:05 CEST

looks really good, but unfortunately, after i installed this, i was unable to see the smokes and fire effects in the game... uninstalling now

20 May 19:57 CEST

Do i have to reset any settings i have already made? (i have only changed the in-game settings)

20 May 19:43 CEST

Isn't it the RivaTuner Statistic Server component of Afterburner that would be incompatible, not Afterburner itself? Unless I'm mistaken, RSS is the one that has the hook that can give things like frame-rate counters, AB is basically purely for overclocking/hardware monitoring (no hook). Just thought it might be worth mentioning for those who don't want to use this since it's advertised as incompatible with AB.

20 May 19:25 CEST

Is there anything that we have to disable in-game for the effects to work?

20 May 18:42 CEST

Fantastic preset, thanks a lot for sharing this!
This game is so Beautiful and deserved it!

20 May 16:41 CEST

sux that afterburner needs to be disabled... can't use sweetfx then...

20 May 12:56 CEST

As mentioned earlier, I finally found a decent sharpening strength. #define sharp_strength 0.40 #define sharp_clamp 0.02. It seems to bring out the finer textures a little more without being grainy, like the leather straps on Geralt's armor etc. :)

19 May 22:42 CEST

@ss-8919 fraps, you nailed it.
working now perfect.
pls add to description.

19 May 22:40 CEST

Couldn't get this to work, and I don't want to disable Afterburner. I downloaded SweetFX 1.5, it works fine :)

19 May 19:59 CEST

No problems here in fullscreen. have you tried changing resolution to lower and then back again?

19 May 19:48 CEST

Okay so I have an issue atm with using the preset. My game automatically starts with Borderless Window mode and, sometimes when I try to revert back to fullscreen, it just doesn't work. Feels like your preset is forcing my game to stay borderless window. Is it the case?

19 May 19:14 CEST


Unfortunately I haven't found a way net but would definitely be a nice option :)


Not sure but as I've said to others make sure you have steam overlay disabled (if using steam) and ensure no other programs that use hooks are enabled, such as fraps/afterburner/dxtory etc as they conflict with sweetfx.

19 May 18:59 CEST

Would really like a NO HUD toggle for making screens on the fly, anyone know if something like that is out?

19 May 18:42 CEST

game crashes at start, w7 x64 sp1.

dxgi.log http://pastebin.com/cJWp9af3
witcher3.exe crashinfo http://pastebin.com/yDAiPzPx
do not see any usable info from there, any help?

19 May 17:59 CEST

I usually include it in all my presets except this, as CDPR already included a post-process sharpen filter. If you want go ahead, but I tried it and it looked overly sharp and introduced aliasing which I prefer to reduce than increase :P

19 May 17:44 CEST

Love the preset. Just wondering what your opinions are on adding lumasharpen? Been playing around with it, but not sure it's it make the image look better or worse (definitely more VGX trailer like with the sharpen). Thanks.

19 May 17:30 CEST


That's a quirk of the screenshot as I took too long and the moon shifted on the enabled shot.

I've redone that particular screenshot and you can see that the bloom is still there.

19 May 15:37 CEST

I love this preset, but I like more the vanilla nights. The moon bloom through trees in the 4th pic without SweetFx, is so beaufiul. Do you plant to make a version with default nights of the game? :(

19 May 15:01 CEST

See the description, it's currently not working in reshade 0.18.40

19 May 14:46 CEST

It says the SweetFX is running when starting up, but the Toggle key is not working. SCRoll lock

19 May 13:45 CEST

Nevermind my comment, it seems after a restart I now see the fires again.
Was maybe a bug with the witcher

19 May 13:40 CEST

I have reshade working and it looks great but there seems to be no fire effects anymore in game!
I just tested the starting area where geralt comes out of the tub and there is no more fire in the fireplace and also the candles don't work.
Anyone else with this problem?

19 May 12:14 CEST


Yes maxed out at 1440p on my 5820k@4.5 and Titan X (plus separate GTX 960 for dedicated physx).


Could be a combination of different time of day/area in the game as lighting changes vastly or because you have different graphics settings, as above I am running everything maxed out (including physx and gameworks effects)

19 May 11:46 CEST

for me it looks different, not like on those pictures
i dunno its like some effects arent on
game is darker now

19 May 11:46 CEST

@ss-89 Best preset yet looks like the 2014 pc footage from e3. Are you running it maxed out ?

19 May 11:06 CEST

Delete all the sweetfx/reshade files from your directory and follow the manual installation instructions in the description above.

Also please ensure steam overlay is disabled (if using steam) and programs such as msi Afterburner are closed as they can conflict with sweetfx.

19 May 10:54 CEST

Did exactly as instructed but the game won't start, tried it several times. Right after starting up the exe, it crashes and I get a dxgi.log which looks fine to me, and a witcher3.exe_crash file. The game starts up fine without the injector :<

19 May 09:56 CEST

What a great preset, and a breathtaking game! I play this with i7-4790k on 4,8 ghz and GTX 970 4 GB all on ultra except for NVIDIA hair which i turned off. Runs smooth enough.

To install:

1. Download Reshade + Sweetfx 2.0 from http://reshade.me/
2. Open with winrar or anything, and extract all files into your game folder \bin\x64
3. Delete reshade32.dll
4. Rename reshade64.dll to dxgi.dll
5. Download this preset and copy the file in gamefolder \bin\X64\Sweetfx
6. Go into Sweetfx folder, delete SweetFX_settings and rename this preset to SweetFX_settings.
7. DONE!

This preset makes the game complete. Thanks

19 May 08:56 CEST

another lovely config SS-89

Yes the toggle function currently isn't working in reshade 0.18.40 and the witcher 3 (undoubtedly will be fixed in a next release).

To manually toggle on off is a bit more of a pain and involves alt tabbing out of the game changing the sweetfx variables to off and saving and alt tabbing back in. Unless you specifically need that function then I wouldn't worry, as long as it says successful in the reshade prompt at the start, then everything is working.

I have the same problem.

I installed Reshade, found the Witcher.exe, placed your preset into the sweetfx folder and ran the game. At the start of the game i see some lines about the sweetfx and i can also make screenshots using print screen on my keyboard. Tho, when using Scroll lock nothing happends. I can't switch it on (or off) Any idea what's wrong?

I can't say for certain as I no longer use windows 7 but I'm pretty sure it will.

Does it work on Windows 7 too?
