# 1 SweetFX Settings?
07-08-2014, 05:38 PM
I love using SweetFX in many games to improve the graphics. I been looking for some STO settings and can't find any. If you use SweetFX in STO can you post your setting?

SweetFX does not alter the game data nor the communications between the client and server in any way. It is merely a post process injector that modifies the framebuffer of DirectX applications/games to enhance visuals. I don't see how Cryptic could have any legitimate complaint against it, especially when you consider that there are certain graphical options in the official Nvidia/AMD/Intel graphics control panel that can be forced, despite what the application/game supports internally. For example, Nvidia's FXAA is also a post process enhancement.

Addressing the topic, I would say it's all personal preference. This interview with the creator of SweetFX explains the various effects and may be helpful for deciding which ones you want to play with. Personally I mostly use the HDR, SMAA and Lumasharpen effects at default settings in games, though in STO I don't use HDR due to performance reasons.

This is a different situation. The LCARS modifications were alterations to the client.
