    Let it install the Reshade Shader Packages

    Ok, what shader packages do you install as there are 10 or so?

    I've customized mine over time, but you can just let it go ahead with the default ones.

    Ok

    So you installed all the shader packages except Sweetfx and then went from there?

    I guess I don't understand the question.

    You only need the most recent package (Dec 2019) if you're talking about AnKor's shaders. Really, that's all you need.

    I wouldn't install the SweetFX program anymore.

    I'd use Reshade if I wanted to add post process special graphics effects on top of AnKor's shaders, but that's completely optional to running CFS3. Reshade includes all of the legacy SweetFX shaders along with it's own default ones, and various other custom packs you may find interesting.

    Lately Reshade's developers seem to be mostly focused on creating new effects that rely on z-axis sorting to allow for image manipulation that is dependent on object distance. They've done amazing things like selective fog, and narrow depth of focus for newer games that have their rendering data in the right format, but none of these will work with good old CFS3. My primary application of Reshade is for basic color contrast enhancement, and image sharpening.

    Andy,

    You answered my question as when you open reshade there are about 10 shader packages to install (including as you said the sweetfx shaders). From what I am understanding you loaded all of them and used them as needed.
