From older Reshade with SweetFX (non 3.0/+) presets I like Time to Survive the best. Just decrease contrast in options if it's too saturated or too bright, and maybe brightness for one point.

27 Dec 17:44 CET

Gameplay with amazing Cine FX preset by Da_Rellik: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAvEg-VNfUU

29 Jun 19:57 CEST

hmm, i got it to apply Quentin's - Cinematic HD FX but it just makes everything blurry - not sure why?

17 May 04:29 CEST

after very long hours and days of work i finally finished GreyAway for Far Cry 4. i hope you appreciate the work and might check it out. thanks.

31 Jan 01:30 CET

Got it to work with radeon pro.
Disabled uplay, setup radeon pro, I have to cycle between fullscreen and windowed to get it to hook.

29 Jan 03:25 CET

Damn. Thanks man, but I get compiler failed with 2 errors.
SMAA syntax error # X3000

18 Jan 21:44 CET

I got it to work with this:

Its the ReShade + SweetFX 2.0 version with the dxgi.dll it created for Cod:AW (the autodetection on FarCry4.exe fails)

11 Jan 21:45 CET

Radeon pro just didn't hook at all though. No change.

11 Jan 21:44 CET

I just don't think its possible. I can't believe you guys can get it working!
I tried all the presets, the configurator, radeon pro, and two different sweet fx versions.

Crash on startup every time. No errors in log.

16 Dec 05:04 CET

THANK YOU SHIZZ. Those files worked for me using radeon pro. I also tried putting them just with the exe, like many other games, and still got the crash. But at least it works with this method! Thank you for uploading them--hopefully they can help others too :)

15 Dec 20:06 CET

Well, let's try this: Use the exact same version that I am using. I uploaded it here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/lb7ymwkaga02noc/fc4.rar

I noticed that sometimes RadeonPro loads fine, but then it 'un-loads' after the first screen where you press Enter. The only fix I know for this is switching between windowed/borderless/fullscreen until it works again (If you use the preset I uploaded, you will notice the difference right on the menu; it's a modified version of Da_Rellik's preset).
If this doesn't work, then I don't know what else to do :c I was just like you and everyone else here, trying every possible method until this one worked out for me.

15 Dec 06:43 CET

Okay, I have followed every step in your post Shizz, and I still do not see sweetfx config being loaded. I do see the FPS viewer that RadeonPro has on by default. I can toggle Sweetfx, and see in the top-right it change on and off. The game itself does not look any different. I've tried several presets, and I've made sure to remove comments. I've used exaggerated settings after not seeing any difference, such as high vibrance and tonemap, and still can't see a difference when toggling the effect.

14 Dec 06:06 CET

If you're on Nvidia hardware, RadeonPro won't do any extra stuff besides injecting sweetfx, as far as I know. All the tweaks and configs only work on AMD, for nvidia users I think it's just a way around to inject shaders.

14 Dec 05:53 CET

Radeon Pro doesn't even catch Far Cry 4 for me... I add the shortcut commands -skipintro, and game ignores it. Works fine if I have this line on a shortcut on desktop.

12 Dec 03:33 CET

Also, make sure to run the game on Fullscreen. If you're using Borderless (Like I was doing), RadeonPro won't work at all.
To summarize:
-Use SFX 1.5.1 with x64 dlls
-Run SFX through RadeonPro
-Open Sweetfx_Settings.txt and delete everything above " /Choose Effects/ "
-Import settings manually on RadeonPro
-Launch game from RadeonPro list and make sure you're using Fullscreen mode on game settings.

12 Dec 03:26 CET

I found something that worked for me: Run SweetFX via RadeonPro, but make sure to DELETE HEADERS / DEVELOPER NOTES from the SweetFX_Settings file. Just delete everything above '/Choose Effects/'. I found out that most of the time this section contains stupid and unnecesary special characters and stuff that somehow get in the way when the program needs to read the settings.
This is also detailed in this tutorial that shows how to use SweetFX with RadeonPro on Windows 8.1 (Though I'm using Windows 7 x64, and it works for me using this exact method): http://www.overclock.net/t/1485750/how-to-use-sweetfx-in-windows-8-1

Just do every single step and it will work.

8 Dec 16:57 CET

I have yet to try this: ON youtube some guy told me this:

"Also make sure you use a preset made for 1.5.1 or copy the values from current preset to a stock 1.5.1 as that also can make it crash (i.e if using presets for 1.3-1.4 etc)."

7 Dec 07:02 CET

I get same errors as jonathan1107. I am also on the GTX 970

6 Dec 04:32 CET

this is what's found in my sweetfx log:

22:30:57] D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain redirected successfully

(here's a more detailed version of what I've tried to make sweetfx work with farcry4... still haven'T succeeded :(

For the love of God I can't get sweetfx to work with farcry 4 on my computer. I tried litteraly everything my mind can come up with. Searched on forums... soooo desperate lol...

Here are the things I tried:
(I have a GTX 970 nvidia card with windows 7 64 bit, graphics card is OC'ed using MSI AB and RivaTuner Statistics server for FPS monitoring along with temps and whatnot)

- Tried running rivatuner's d3d compatibility mode (on vs off)
- Tried the game fullscreen vs borderless
- Tried all the versions of Sweetfx there is (1.4 ... 1.5... boulotaur's version ... SFXconfig 1.4) evvvvverything...
- Tried compatibility mode (vista sp1 sp2 u name it)
- Tried disabling desktop composition
- Tried running as admin (my UAC is disabled anyhow)
- Tried everything.

The closest I've gotten it to work is using the SFXConfig utilty presented in this video. I get a "farcry4.exe has stopped working" when trying to launch the game (I have the skipintro affix to the shortcut)

The error message says that "dxgi.dll is the faulty file" and when running in vista compatibility mode "ntdll.dll" is the faulty file apparantly...

What on Earth must I do for sweetfx to work with farcry 4 ???

6 Dec 04:01 CET

@ AziD

I tried your suggestion and used the SFXconfig (1.4) copied everything in the bin folder and then updated all the presets and selected kputt's config for farcry 4...

And now my game won't even start (I get the FarCry4.exe has stopped working) and the faulty file is found to be "dxgi.dll" when running the farcry.exe file normally and "ntdll" when running the game in vista sp2 compatibility mode.

I've been trying to get sweetfx to work with this game this whole day... still no success...

I've NEVER had such a hard time with sweetfx like this ever before...

3 Dec 18:29 CET

SfxConfig more info here: http://sfx.thelazy.net/forum/sweetfx/44/

3 Dec 18:24 CET

For those struggling to get this to work. I used SFXconfig. I dont remember where I got it, but its made of author (s) of this site and you can even update the same config thats hosted here. Just load preset, then click save settings (brose to game exe, and the program does the rest. This version is with sweetfx 1.5.1

27 Nov 09:51 CET

I am also not getting sweetfx to work. I have tried 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.5.1, eFX, a special Win8 version, and RadeonPro and GeDoSaTo. None pick up the game. If I use the x64 dll, I get this crash,

[12:02:33] D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain redirected successfully [12:02:33] Hooking swapchain... [12:02:33] D3D10CreateDeviceAndSwapChain failed: 0000000080070057 !

I threw the file in the folder "Far Cry 4\bin", but your filter is not working! What could be the problem?

19 Nov 14:08 CET

Hello, I'm on windows 7 and was getting crashes with sweetfx in far cry, tried running on compatibility mode, editing the gameprofile, but one thing made the sweetfx work without a problem: Not using the LEVELS effect.
I'm not running on compatibility mode anymore and it's running without a problem.
