Borderlands 2 Improving Graphics Guide: SweetFX Tutorial. SMAA. Sharpening. Vibrance And More!




What do you think about this video?

Massa902: Can you Downsample? Like Adjust the resolution that is greater than you monitor's Native Res?´╗┐

Pedrinha Gamer: the game does not open´╗┐

PCGamesAndTek: SweetFX is built on top of SMAA injector.

Anthony P: tried now on Hitman : Absolution and Tomb Raider, and works ... so yes it works on DX11, and it also written on the guru.3d page " It works with all 32bit DirectX 9 , 10 and 11 games (and many applications). "

hwkfr: 3, 2, 1 ... fail

mrnebu: i got it to work after i disabled the following - right click on desktop - screen resolution - advanced settings - monitor - make sure that the "hide modes that this monitor..." option is no checked!!! also make sure u got AA FXAA off when u start it with borderlands and u should be good to go!

ricioz96: I dunno where in this world fxaa impacts the fps and smaa doesn't as much. Fxaa affects it by 3 at most, smaa can go as far as 10

TheAdiposeTV: awesome! You can get some really beautiful effects with this.

TheAdiposeTV: there is a file called injector.ini where you can change which button does what. Theres also a link in the file that gives you the code for each key. Good luck! Adi

TheAdiposeTV: That should work fine - thats exactly what i was using in the vid

AtomzicGamer101: AMD uses Physx?, wow the rumors are true!

TobyMcHD: Another great link is sfx.thelazy. (net), this is where you can find many presets people have made for the mod, and it has screenshots for before and after the preset application :)

TheAdiposeTV: Thanks for the tips. Will help others I'm sure. Adi

TheAdiposeTV: Thanks for the sub. ... and yes I've heard the Frankie comparison before.

zXona: DAMMNNN i love your voice! ^^

TheAdiposeTV: do you get any error message?

james judge: Nice video!

JuLz101: I got a readon 7850 hd so a higher one than yours but with Physx it's a bit more laggy than i see it in your videos. That's a bit strange ?

TheAdiposeTV: Thank you Mr potter

Mason Nolan: It keeps crashing before launch. I click play on steam and it doesn't launch. Please help! SweetFX is AMAZING on all my other games.

zXona: IN BOTH OF THEM! :DDD

Chris Sousa: I tried doing this but it doesn't change anything. Can anyone help me as to why it does that?

Mason Nolan: Nope. I just clicked then nothing happened. Steam shows it tried to launched by green frame but still nothing.

Michael Verne: Did anyone tried this along with the outline disabled tweak?

TheAdiposeTV: You're welcome. I'm going to be continuing this series on sweetFX looking at the difference settings over the coming weeks. Adi

TheAdiposeTV: sigh.... yes apprently I'm sounding more and more like him these days :-z

boeftim: k but for me the outline revover broke....

CeeJayDK: BTW some of the settings can be set outside the ranges I defined in the settings file. Doing so however will probably create freaky results :) Try taking Vibrance to 2.00 or even 3.00 - extreme colour to the max. And if you thought that was freaky try extreme negative values , like - 2.00 which actually inverts your colours

RoflH4x0rz: Great vid, thanks! Will improve my bl2

CeeJayDK: On some keyboards you need to hold down a Fn key and press another key to activate scroll lock - but otherwise as Adi said you can simply edit injector.ini to change the keymapping

TheAdiposeTV: I often play with this on and no outlines so they definately work together. Adi

TheAdiposeTV: ...good? love in a sexy rugged kinda way? or love in a nerdy teacher kinda way?

Miles Rodriguez: thanks yea i just change the bindings because i dont hav an actual scroll lockkey or sub key.

boeftim: dude i like it but what happens with it if i have the black oulines turnd of and can u try make a file that looks good and makes for better fps?

Miles Rodriguez: Oh and adipose i dont think i have a scroll lock key so how would you think i could change the binding so i could turn it off

Miles Rodriguez: Hey Adipose thanks man it working fine with an Intel HD 3000!!

TheAdiposeTV: Thanks for sharing that. I'll post it back to anyone else who asks the question. Adi

TheAdiposeTV: No probs. Adi

mrnebu: got downsampling to work, had to disable a function for screen resolution in windows. you guys should check the readme that comes with it!! :D

jamie watts: ok thanks will do, I also downloaded a preset from sweetfx downloads (bl2sharp-xtra detail-contrast) works like a treat! great forum to refer to for extras.

TheAdiposeTV: I think I run physX medium - not high - does that explain it?

Miles Rodriguez: Oh ok thx again!!

xex321654: just download winrar :)

jamie watts: Downloaded sweetfx! freakin awesome and so easy to use thanks Adipose! :D playing bl2 is way much better :) thanks man.

TheAdiposeTV: no... UNLESS you run it through radeon pro if you have an ati card.

urpokarhu1: Hello, Could you share us your settings preset?

Warren Clyde: I enjoyed this video. Watching in 1080p is a must for these type of videos showing graphics and detail. Thanks for the video!

Colossal: With the full saturation it looks like the official screenshots. Which were staged and photoshopped. So that's cool.

TheAdiposeTV: oh I'm glad you said that. I was disappointed when I finally got it uploaded that some of the effects arent as good in the video as real life - so I'm glad they are still noticable. I really need to get the quality up in my desktop videos. Thanks for watching and commenting. Adi

SigaTech69: if you own a 600 series gpu from nvidia use txaa x4 if its available then sweetfx or enb would work for the rest of the processing in the scene being rendered
