so it's my 9th preset i skipped some here ^^ tweaked a lot and tested a loooooooot with 100 screenshots , +ingame and benchmark 2fps cost for me you can download the full package here: http://ninjafada.com/ffxiv/ARR/p3/p3v9.rar extract in the game folder where ffxiv.exe is vous pouvez virer l'antialiasing IG vu que sweetfx en a un et vous gagnerez 5fps de moyenne you can remove in game antialiasing to save 5fps

don't remove hdr from the game it's not the same as the one in sweetfx
for fxaa you can remove it to gain fps
you may adjust #define sharp_strength 0.90
from 0.50 to 1.50 as you prefer

Do you need to disable the in-game HDR and FXAA for this to work it's best?

about the other questions
http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/screenshot/2223 was a screenshot provided by the devs i used a lot a filter on it but the problem they changed a lot of things since so we can't have the same result without having problem in other place , like donjon or sunset

for SMAA you can use it instead of FXAA but it makes the chat font dirty , my FXAA is very light it doesn't blur away and the lumasharpen works after i thing

you can test your screenshot i included the DX9IV.exe drag n drop the screenshot on it and it will be opened with sweetfx

Yes i know that key, thanks. =)

As for us being able to see the changes while in-game is awesome, no need to alt-tab, windowed mode is much faster =)

Thanks again, now need to wait for the beta ;_;

yes you can alt tab, edit and save
press pause in game it will reload
i changed the button for the toggle off/on to menu/select it's the key between the win right et ctrl right, it open a context menu most of the time

Sorry to post again, forgot something.

Can we tweak the settings while the game is open? I mean, in a way that we can see the changes in-game.

PS: Bolotaur's SFX doesn't let me use the Enable/Disable button so i don't even know if SFX is enabled or not (but i think it is because it looks sharper).

Cheers.

So i don't need Bolotaur's SFX anymore?

I'd rather have a version with decent AA (SMAA) than the current FXAA because a lot of stuff is pixelated in the distance.

Anyway i linked that preset because of this shot, i really like the colors: http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/screenshot/2223/

I'm not sure what you did, either HDR and/or bloom, the light also looks great, sadly i can't try this preset nor the one linked because the beta is only on Friday ._.

Thanks anyway.
