I don't understand why you want to turn a gorgeous game with specific mood into "Tera" like looking game? It looks way better when its foggy...

Just small information for people using this. gW2 screenshots folder will still have screenshots whid do not show changed made by SweetFX. When you take a screenshot SweetFX makes a bmp file in game's folder.

All injectors are good, no doubt.

Looking at the Op's armor to me it smacks of hypocracy on Anets behalf. How tough they are with names, chat, forum verbiage to make it a "family game", you can't help but see the artist uses the red highlight around the breasts, to mimic someone's hands fondling her breasts. It's just calling a spade a spade there. I personally like it, but it shows how bi-polar they even are.

I've tried SweetFX a few times but unfortunately every time I do the game crashes instantly upon loading...

Edit: Found the solution. Turn off FXAA (I already have it off) and more importantly, run GW2.exe as administrator. :)

Um.. all armor is dyable. It looks that way (with the red around the breasts) because that is the dye that person used on that armor. Someone else could use the same chest armor and dye it a few thousand different ways (there are over 350 dyes in the game). It doesn't look that way become some 'hypocritical artists wanted to sexualize it in a supposedly family-friendly game' hehe. Trust me, there are several other chest armor pieces that are far more suggestive and revealing than that one lol.

Edit: Oh and, GW2 isn't a 'family' game. It's rated T, so some suggestive or revealing armors are expected. But hell at least it isn't as bad as say Tera.

OP if you are still around please share your settings with me too. I just downloaded after i saw this post. I didn't even know such a mod existed. And i am frankly kind of lost with so many options.

Thanks in advance.

I changed the settings a bit since then Zeus, but its a good start. You gotta work the settings to your liking usually since we all run different gpu and the such. Just gotta play around with it.

It's the deisgn on the outer edges of the breasts and not the dye. Sure you can make it stand out more making the two contrast one another. But it's the design. Very sexy, while the companies mouth-pieces come off as very very conservative.

Actually I agree with him, the current world has a lot of nice subtleties. This removes those subtleties, takes away the nice blending.

meh, to each his/her own I suppose.

I agree with you the current world of tyria is truelly amzing with lots of nice little subtleties here and there. But I havent notice much of those being taken away using sweetfx, in fact I feel its enhanced. And the whole foggy effect is still there, it just I dont play with Post-processing on at all. Which is a big part of the blooming glooming foggy effect. I hate it, but yes to each their own.

This is cool, but I prefer the default engine, with postprocessing turned off. I wish there was a HD texture pack though, or someone would mod the textures.

#define USE_BLOOM         1 //[0 or 1] Bloom : Makes bright lights bleed their light into their surroundings (relatively high performance cost)

#define USE_HDR           1 //[0 or 1] HDR : Not actual HDR - It just tries to mimic an HDR look (relatively high performance cost)

#define USE_TECHNICOLOR   0 //[0 or 1] TECHNICOLOR : Attempts to mimic the look of an old movie using the Technicolor three-strip color process (Techicolor Process 4)

#define USE_DPX           0 //[0 or 1] Cineon DPX : Should make the image look like it's been converted to DXP Cineon - basically it's another movie-like look similar to technicolor.

#define USE_VIGNETTE      0 //[0 or 1] Vignette : Darkens the edges of the image to make it look more like it was shot with a camera lens. May cause banding artifacts.

#define USE_DITHER        0 //[0 or 1] Dither : Applies dithering to simulate more colors than your monitor can display. This lessens banding artifacts (mostly caused by Vignette)
