You can add non-steam games into Steam library and launch it for FPS overlay.

Looks worse...IMO and nothing really dramatic other than removing the piss color.

I'll never understand the obsession with crushing your blacks.

Most of the profiles in the database are terrible. There are a couple decent ones.

Do the people that make these don't have their monitors properly calibrated or what?

From what I've seen the vast majority of people buy their monitor, plug it in, and assume that's how it's supposed to look. I can count on 1 finger the number of people I know who have actually gone through the trouble of getting a colorimeter and spending the 2-3 hours to properly calibrate their display.

BTW, that one person would be me.

Everyone else I know has their monitor left far too bright and far to color saturated, so the only way they can get anything close to black is by crushing the grays until they look black.



And yes, based on what I've seen from SweetFX profiles, the vast majority of them don't have the slightest clue as to how to properly calibrate a display. They look horribly ugly on properly calibrated monitors.

And before anyone starts throwing out trolling claims, have you done this to your own monitor?



If not, you should assume that your monitor looks like crap. Your colors are almost certainly too heavily saturated and shifted too far into the reds, and your dark grays are crushed into blacks. I've never seen ANY television or monitor that was even close to properly calibrated out of the box.

Most people don't calibrate there monitors. I never calibrated any of my monitors, neither does any of my friends. So I think the SweetFX settings will largely depend on how your monitor is calibrated from the factory. To your monitor the blacks might not look good, but maybe to a differently calibrated monitor it improved the look.

If not, you should assume that your monitor looks like crap. Your colors are almost certainly too heavily saturated and shifted too far into the reds, and your dark grays are crushed into blacks. I've never seen ANY television or monitor that was even close to properly calibrated out of the box.

Not always true, some monitors do come well calibrated such as the dell u2713hm like I have. Might not be perfect but it's pretty darn close out of the box. No doubt there are others that are even more finely calibrated out of the box so it's a bit far to assume they're all borked unless calibrated with a colorimeter.

I know my screen is a little darker than normal but I prefer the darker blacks to the brighter whites. Plus it's easier on the eyes while coding so I can definitely live with it.


Overall I do agree with you though, most sweetfx profiles look absolutely rubbish. Washed out with incredibly dark shadows and all sorts of other nasty effects. If you want it done right do it yourself imo, otherwise you're unlikely to ever come up with a solution that will please you. With respect to the witcher 3 though, I'd say the colours currently are actually pretty good. Only had a couple of cases where I thought colours were too bright and that was only in respect to some clothing, not the environment which looks pretty accurate on my monitor.

While i don't have a colormeter myself i did research and used a icc profile to adjust my colors.
Probably not completely perfect but the difference between a good and bad icc profile is staggering.

Too much sharpening and it's too dark killing the most dark details. I don't like it all. Maybe it seems better in screenshots but I tried it and don't like it.

This is a game which allready have most off the gfx features man would try to archieve when using postshaders by sweetfx, reshade or gemfx. It's very difficult to enhance this any further, without decrasing fidelity on some other parts.
