SweetFX Tutorial for ArmA 3 on Windows 10/8.1/7

Postby dux » 31 Jan 2016, 14:12

For those of you that want to change the look of your ArmA 3, I have created a tutorial to show you how. I originally made it as a steam guide but I wanted to share it here. Steam Link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=591636793

DOWNLOAD LINKS

ReShade: http://reshade.me/sweetfx#download
Real Light V5 [created by Solano]: http://www.videopilot.link/rl/v5/Real_L ... ackage.zip

STEP 1: DOWNLOAD + EXTRACT
Download both .zip files linked in the dowload section and extract them into their seperate folders.

STEP 2: INSTALL RESHADE

1. Open the extracted ReShade folder.
2. Run "ReShade Setup" as administrator.
3. Click select game.
4. Navigate to your ArmA 3 directory and select "arma3.exe" and click "Open".
5. In the ReShade installer, it should read "Success!" in the top left.

STEP 3: INSTALL REAL LIGHT V5

1. In the "Real_Light_V5_Package.zip" extracted folder select the following files:
-"KeyCodes.txt"
-"Reshade.fx"
-"Reshade_settings.txt"
-"Sweet.fx"
-"SweetFX readme.txt"
-"SweetFX_preset.txt"
-"SweetFX_settings.txt"

2. Copy and replace the selected files into your ArmA 3 root directory.

STEP 4: ENJOY!

Thx dux to share your tut. Well done!

Useing ReShade since 1 year and have to say less performance hit and a really enhance of visual appearance!
I do use the ReShade Preset (Real Light V6 adv.) of Solano, too.

Just to mention, if BE is blocking the dxgi.dll, set the file to "read-only"

Cheers

All of the benefits are subjective. Its all down to personal preference, some people, including me. feel that the colours in ArmA 3 are a bit dull; ReShade changes the look and feel of the game. You can change all the settings in the config file (I have no experience with this though). Or you can download presets from here: http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/game/183/ <-- Only the ones marked "ReShade Framework" will work with Reshade.

sweetfx is better to use with sweetfx configurator. sweetfx settings can be adjusted in real time by this tool

I agree, but I have yet to find a solution that works with Windows 10 without RadeonPro which is an added inconvenience.

Okay so I did everything you said, without any errors or anything.
But the problem occurs when I start the game, nothing happens, except for a black screen, it stops responding so I have to quit. Tried to remove the files I copied but didn't help...

Any clue on what to do or do I have to reinstall?


Have a nice day.
