You could probably use those for all games or even make the AA stronger. You could try lowering the threshold and corner rounding parameters even further. The ultra preset is always a good, reliable starting point because it's satisfactory for most games. I only edit it when I'm feeling adventurous or when I just want a little more oomph.

It worked with:
War Inc: Battlezone
Tomb Raider: Anniversary

It had no effect on:
Audiosurf
CS:GO (I might have put it in the wrong place for this one)

It crashed:
The Sims 3

Results seem to be diff on each game. All on Windows 8 Pro.

If CS:GO is anything like Black Mesa then it will require the files to be in two different locations. Take a look at the Black Mesa guide (in the OP, "Installation" section, under the "Exceptions" spoiler). Hopefully someone can comment on your Sims 3 issue.

A folder with my name doesn't even exist. All the games I have installed (besides CS:GO) are not from valve. And CS:GO is in the common folder.

And I mostly need this for Sims 3. Other games run fine, but Sims 3 only runs fine with the AA off but then everything looks extremely ugly.

From my experience, if a game crashes then it's one of two things:

 

1)Permissions (you've convinced me that this is not the issue in this case, just make sure you run as admin anyway)

2)File locations

 

Since you mentioned your path was: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\

Fire a shot in the dark and copy all the files to "The Sims 3" and "Game" in addition to "Bin". See if that changes anything.

So I had not gotten a chance to try out SweetFX with Project CARS and it works great. It looks awesome... but I am unable to have the frame rate limited and also run sweetfx at the same time. The frame rate won't be limited if it's active. I'm using MSI AB to limit it btw. Anyway around this?

Edit: So to get them working together... you have to enable "comparability with modified Direct3D runtime libraries". thumb.gif

I'm curuious but what type of performance do you get in that game... for me after getting out of the boat onto the island during the first part... it became unplayable. With my system I get around 12fps ALWAYS while it's raining. No matter the settings or tweaks that I use... mad.gif

The game is plagued by a handful of performance and stability issues. I loaded up my last save and waited for it to rain. Didn't have to wait too long as you can probably guess from the clouds. The framerate during rain was ~43-45fps and GPU usage was pegged at 99%. I forgot to save during the rain so I didn't test rain+SweetFX but it shouldn't be too different.

So I disabled Crossfire... and I get the exact same performance. With crossfire on, I get 60fps everywhere, but when looking at towns. I get 10-30fps when looking at towns.
