New version SweetFX 1.5 - works with XSplit
https://sfx.thelazy.net/static/media/do ... 5-23364.7z - unzip to C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin
should replace d3d9.dll

Turn on/off - Scroll lock
F11 - reload setting(if you want to tweak it in SweetFX_settings.txt)

Settings file attached - copy it to same folder.

I think this should be integrated with all effects off(cuz performance) - just color correction.
Until then here is a quick guide to change settings:
1. Start a game from C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin\ForgedAlliance.exe
2. in same folder open SweetFX_settings.txt
search for "Tonemap settings" to change gamma, saturation, exposure, hue
and right above Tonemap you have " Lift Gamma Gain settings" - for color balance.
3. Make changes, save file
4. Alt+Tab back to game and press F11(defined in injector.ini) - it will update settings on the run. No need to restart the game.

For people that have troubles with different d3d file - i guess you can use SweatFX Reshade https://sfx.thelazy.net/static/media/do ... _Beta_8.7z

Problems with XSplit, i guess, were not cuz of SweatFX, but cuz of DoF. SweatFX 1.5 works with XSplit fine. And, i guess, Reshader will also do.

for people asked for "calmer" version - i'm playing like this:

quick fix would be to delete the bin folder in programdata it will get created again. If you installed it to program files, install FA again.

Ok people in this thread need to know two things :
1.) back up your current d3d9.dll in C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin
2.) when running SweetFX install guide it to FA.exe from C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin NOT from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Supreme Commander Forged Alliance\bin

That how it works in reshade version i guess.
that's #define USE_VIGNETTE 1 in SweetFX_settings.txt. Change to 0.
