SweetFX 1.5.1 (Graphic improvement)
Description about SweetFX 1.5.1 (Graphic improvement)
SweetFX Shader Suite (or just SweetFX), is a mod built on the InjectSMAA shader injector, that allows you to apply a suite of post processing shader effects to your games. I mainly use this tool to sharpen up the game image and improve the colour and contrast.
SweetFX works with almost any 32bit (and hopefully soon 64bit) DirectX 9, 10 or 11 games or applications.
It runs on all Windows versions from Windows 2000 and up. Both 32bit and 64bit. Certain parts of SweetFX can be CPU/VGA resource heavy so keep this in mind when modding.
Once this has downloaded you will get a file called SweetFX-Configurator_standalone_with_SweetFX_188.8.131.52z You now need to use a free program called 7Zip or Winrar to unpack (unzip/extract) this.
Open the folder up and you will get a folder galled SweetFX Configurator you can place this anywhere as it is standalone (I have it on an external drive)
Now open up the folder and double click on SweetFX_config.exe we now need to add ETS2 to the program, Click on Add new game in the bottom left and navigate the explorer window to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Euro Truck Simulator 2\bin\win_x86\eurotrucks2.exe" and click on open.
Now you will see ETS2 listed in the column on the left hand side, click on this and on the right hand side click on Add SweetFX.
You will now see a list of effects in the main part of the window that you can edit (You can find various guides on this from Google) I only use 4 of the available effects It is not recoomended just to use them all, each person has their own preference so play with the settings and get it as you want.
My settings and changes are as follows,
Tick smaa_anti-aliasing and change,
smaa_threshold = 0.18
smaa_max_search_steps = 58
smaa_max_search_steps_diag = 14
smaa_corner_rounding = 64
Tick Luma Sharpen and change,
sharp_strength = 1.75
Tick Vibrance and change,
Vibrance = 0.40
Tick Curves and change,
Curves_contrast = 0.25
Once that is done click Save new Config and you can close the tool as it is not needed to be running to perform the changes, now just launch the game as normal and you can see the difference by pressing the Scroll Lock key on your keyboard which enables/disables the effects.
I hope you can follow this and that you can make the game as beautiful as possible, feel free to add your presets/changes below and I will try to answer questions if they arise.
