SweetFX Tweak for WOFFue (for Bucksnort SweetFX Package)


Hello fellow WOFFue flyers,

Please find included with this post a very small package that includes my SweetFX settings file and d3d8 initialization files - this is a tweak of the settings file located in the JSGME-friendly Bucksnort SweetFX mod that is available for WOFFue (see the relevant thread for WOFFue on the SimHQ forum to download the Bucksnort package).

Once you've downloaded the Bucksnort package, read the directions included in the "Read Me" file in my package for how/where to copy over my settings file - which should give greater vibrancy, sharpness, and also very subtle bloom in WOFFue. Works particularly well on AMD cards but should work on any graphics card. See the pics. included with this post for a good example of improved grass color, among other things, with the SweetFX tweak.

Happy flying,

Von S :smile:

Hello fellow WOFFue flyers,

For those who like sharp, crisp visuals in their WOFFue, please find included below a zipped file that contains two alternate SweetFX settings files that go with my SweetFX tweaks package (for the Bucksnort SweetFX mod). You will find a "subtle bloom" and "no bloom" settings file included.

See pics. included further below for examples of how the subtle bloom looks (coupled with a Lod Bias value set to -1, by the way) - the scenery is now about as sharp as I can get it in WOFFue on my rig.

Also, for those running WOFFue on AMD cards, as indicated in my posts over on SimHQ, turn off terrain shadows (set to 0) in the relevant d3d8 ini files included with this SweetFX tweaks package, but feel free to enable cloud density and cloud shadow values - enabling cloud density/shadows gives aircraft shadows on the ground too, not only on the aircraft itself. I run a value of 3 for example for cloud density/shadow values, and with terrain shadows set to zero - there is no shadow flickering from my AMD cards. Higher cloud density/shadow values should be fine too, but might slightly shave off some of the framerate.

Happy flying,

Von S :smile:
