    This Could Be Very Interesting - AnKor's Shaders

    http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.ph...at#Post3881675

    This could eventually allow SweetFX to run in CFS3 as well...

    This has some very interesting implications, but I'm away from my Win7 machine for the hols...

    Very interesting indeed. I've got the DX8 version of ENB working just fine, but hadn't been able to get the DX9 version or sweetfx working. I don't know much about them, what capabilities do they have over DX8 ENB?

    So far, it's not working for me, but I think it's the 3840 x 1024 resolution that causing the problem. Anyone else try it out successfully yet?

    I tried, no luck yet, haven't had time to mess with it much though.

    I have it working now. The trick was to rerun CFS3config and to assign the screen resolution again.

    He's also posted a newer version of the dlls on page one of his thread, so you might want to download it again.

    If you choose to install FlightFX to manage your SweetFX settings you should also install the latest version of SweetFX (1.5.1 http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=381912) in the FlightFX/FX folder before you register CFS3 as a new game. If you don't FlightFX will install it's own older version of SweetFX into your game.

    Here's how I did my SweetFX install:

    1. Download the latest converter files from here http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.ph...at#Post3881675 and install the d3d8.dll and d3d8.ini files where your cfs3.exe file is. This can be done for each install of CFS3 you may have.

    2. Edit the ini file to NoMultisampling=1 (you do not need this if you're going to be using the DX9 ENB injector found here http://www.enbdev.com/download.htm)

    3. Run CFS3Config.exe and make sure you choose the proper display options selection again (it will probably show 800 x 600 x 32).

    4. Download FlightFX from here http://riseofflight.com/Forum/viewto...p?f=49&t=34103 and install it on your computer.

    5. Since version 1.0 of Flight FX does not have latest version (1.5.1) of Sweet FX included you need to download that from here http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=381912 and extract all of it to the FX folder where you have Flight FX installed. Let it overwrite any of the files that may have the same names as what FlightFX already had.

    6. Now you can run Flight FX and click on Register New Game at the bottom left. It will open a dialog box where you'll navigate it to your cfs3.exe file. That will populate the paths at the top right of Flight FX for you.

    7. Click on Enable Sweet FX and it will copy most of the needed files into your CFS3 install. It misses SweetFX_compatibility_settings.txt which is in the Flight FX / FX / SweetFX folder and needs to be manually copied into the matching one Flight FX created in your CFS3 directory.

    8. Select the FX Preset you want to use from the pull down list. The files behind this list are located in the Flight FX / FX / SweetFX / Presets folder. They are just text files so you can create new presets manually by cut and past if you like. Make a back-up copy of any of your favorites because it is all too easy to overwrite them by mistake in Flight FX.

    That is really all there is to it. At this point you can edit any of the settings under the FX Settings tab and the effect will be immediate.

    By default the Scroll Lock key will toggle the shader effects on and off.
    The Print Screen Key will place a screenshot in your CFS3 root directory (This overrules CFS3 that normally wants to save screenshots in the CFS3 folder under My Documents).
    If you uncheck the Enable SweetFX box in Flight FX it will uninstall SweetFX (but not the D3D8 and SweetFX_compatibility_settings files you did manually) and you're back to normal.

    Thanks Major, I'm looking forward to investigating this next week.

    Here are some more interesting settings for a much brighter and clearer image.

    #define USE_LUMASHARPEN   1 //[0 or 1] LumaSharpen : Also sharpens the antialiased edges which makes them less smooth - I'm working on fixing that.
    #define USE_BLOOM         1 //[0 or 1] Bloom : Makes bright lights bleed their light into their surroundings (relatively high performance cost)
    #define USE_HDR           1 //[0 or 1] HDR : Not actual HDR - It just tries to mimic an HDR look (relatively high performance cost)
    #define USE_TECHNICOLOR   0 //[0 or 1] TECHNICOLOR : Attempts to mimic the look of an old movie using the Technicolor three-strip color process (Techicolor Process 4)
    #define USE_DPX           1 //[0 or 1] Cineon DPX : Should make the image look like it's been converted to DXP Cineon - basically it's another movie-like look similar to technicolor.
    #define USE_LIFTGAMMAGAIN 1 //[0 or 1] Lift Gamma Gain : Adjust brightness and color of shadows, midtones and highlights (avoids clipping)
    #define USE_TONEMAP       0 //[0 or 1] Tonemap : Adjust gamma, exposure, saturation, bleach and defog. (may cause clipping)
    #define USE_VIBRANCE      0 //[0 or 1] Vibrance : Intelligently saturates (or desaturates if you use negative values) the pixels depending on their original saturation.
    #define USE_CURVES        0 //[0 or 1] Curves : Contrast adjustments using S-curves.
    #define USE_SEPIA         0 //[0 or 1] Sepia : Sepia tones the image.
    #define USE_VIGNETTE      0 //[0 or 1] Vignette : Darkens the edges of the image to make it look more like it was shot with a camera lens. May cause banding artifacts.
    #define USE_DITHER        0 //[0 or 1] Dither : Applies dithering to simulate more colors than your monitor can display. This lessens banding artifacts (mostly caused by Vignette)

    Another few tweeks to make the HDR a bit lighter, and add some Vibrance to the colors. This looks great for sunny summer days, but not so good under dark gloomy skies.

    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.
    
    
    If you made a good setttings preset please share it with your friends, on forums and websites,
    and/or submit it to the SweetFX Settings Database : http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/
    
    
    This description field and the above Game and Author fields are here so you can fill in your own details for the presets you create.
    Just delete this description and fill in your own and then share it with the world.
    
    
    Hope you enjoy my mod.

    Got it working, sort of. My reflections on metal and glass have gotten all messed up. Did you have this problem?

    I haven't noticed anything like that, but I'm using it for installs where I've already modified the m3d files to be compatible with Shader Specular Shine enabled in Win 7.

    Me too. Specular effects are fine, but anything that uses the environment map isn't working.

  22. #22
    Fixed! It turned out to be a shaders tweak I had made and forgot about as it had no effect in DX8 but messed it up running in DX9. Also, the format the .dds cube map texture is saved in is important. The stock texture works fine, but others don't and need to be converted.

    I just read the of the thread, wow! He's got bump mapping and self shadows working! And if it works there it will work here.
