Thanks for responding.
I don't know anything about shaders.

As it is now the default settings with SweetFX seem pretty good. Stalker game looks awesome with full dynamic lighting.
My main concern is the antialiasing setting. I just want to get the best antialiasing correction possible without killing the computer.

For better AA (at the cost of an increased performance hit) modify the default settings to this

 

#define SMAA_THRESHOLD 0.05           // [0.05 to 0.20] Edge detection threshold
#define SMAA_MAX_SEARCH_STEPS 64      // [0 to 98] Determines the radius SMAA will search for aliased edges
#define SMAA_MAX_SEARCH_STEPS_DIAG 16  // [0 to 16] Determines the radius SMAA will search for diagonal aliased edges

 

To get the best AA possible you may also want to slightly reduce the LumaSharpen setting. Decrease sharp_strength and sharp_clamp in small increments.

 

You could also try out some of the presets included with SweetFX (see "Presets" folder) or in this thread.

TFL Replica, thanks very much for the info. I will do some experimenting now.

Update::

Well it seems like SweetFX is working for Shoc but I don't understand why I have to put the 'sweetfx' folder and the other files into the game's bin folder. Because the instructions for Clear Sky and COP state the following:

** Stalker: Clear Sky and Stalker: Call of Pripyat **
Install SweetFX to the main Stalker folder but move the dlls and injector.ini to the bin folder

When I install sweetfx to CS and COP as instructions state, I get a black screen. Same for putting everything into the bin folder I get a black screen.

as far as COP the log.log has the following lines:

full path: E:\Program Files (x86)\bitComposer Games\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat\bin\

Only d3d9.dll, dxgi.dll and injector.ini need to be in the bin folder. Put everything else (including the SweetFX folder) in the main stalker folder, which would be "E:\Program Files (x86)\bitComposer Games\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat".

 


 

In other news, SweetFX Configurator has been updated again.

Configurator is nice.
Installed sweetfx.
Unchecked Steam hack.

When lauching game an error comes up stating that the fxgame.ltx file is not found.
This file resides in the folder above the bin folder where the executable and all sweetfx files are.
When launching game from desktop icon same error occurs.
log.log file shows same messages as in previous post.

BUT when sweetfx is not installed game runs ok.

Note that when using configurator to remove sweetfx not all files are removed and the sweefx folder is not removed.

Woops, should mention that I am experimenting with CS. Shoc works.


Suggestion that the configurator allow entry of command line parameters in a future version.

Edit your game's short and make sure the "start in" field is "E:\Program Files (x86)\bitComposer Games\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat" and not the bin folder.

 

I'm not sure why you're still having errors. Try copying everything to both the bin folder and the main folder.

I'll pass that along to the developer.

I tried using Sweet FX with EVE Online but couldn't get it to work, seperate issue to you. But i ended up using nVidia Inspector instead and it has alot more AA Options than the nVidia Control Panel.

Does this help you? It helped my wife to get The Sims 3 to use her vid card instead of the HD4000...

For some, the problem seems to be dependent software; for others, graphics cards that won't run the program. I had the same problem with my laptop, couldn't fix it using any of the solutions posted here. I've got an NVidia GT 330M graphics card; should run the program, according to specs, but for some reason the program wouldn't open. I realized that NVidia Optimus may be choosing to use on-board graphics, since Magicka isn't loaded into its "known executables" by default. Sure enough, I added Magicka.exe to the Optimus list of software requiring the graphics card, and it works like a charm.

Instructions: If you're using a newer laptop that you know has an NVidia graphics card, try checking your Optimus settings. Open the "NVIDIA Control Panel" from your start menu. On the lefthand side, under "Select a task...", open the "3D Settings" tree, and select "Manage 3D Settings". Now on the righthand panel, click the "Program Settings" tab. Under "1. Select a program...", click "Add", navigate to your \Steam\steamapps\common\magicka directory and select "Magicka.exe". Under "2. Select the preferred graphics...", choose "High-performance NVIDIA processor", then (VERY IMPORTANT) click "Apply" in the bottom right.
