Sweetfx 2.0 and reshade CTD

Recommended Posts

I am trying to install this: https://reshade.me/sweetfx#download

But, when I start fsx se, it shows a white screen instead of the home screen. When I then select the fly now page, all I get a is a black screen, and the game crashes. If I rename the dll to d3d9.dll instead of dxgi.dll, it temporarily shows the aircraft preview screen when I press fly now, and I see the effects working (says loading effect). However, after like one second, fsx again crashes. I have a friend that installed the same things, and it works for him. I use nvidia inspector, but disabling it doesn't help. I use dx 10, but using dx9 doesn't help either. Any ideas?

They say that version is not recommended on the site and you should download shade 3.0 as it works better with SweetFX2.0.  Perhaps I'm missing something.

 

We have a SweetFX forum and I will move it there where all of the SweetFX guru's visit.

 

Best regards,

I've tried the latest reshade as can be found on their website, but with it my sim doesn't even start. It closes immediately during the splash screen.

The problem with SweetFX (IMHO) is that the settings that work great for some do not work for everyone.

Yes, for my friend with the same graphics card model as I have, it works great.

I tried the sweetfx and reshade link I posted above on a laptop with fsx, and it didn't work when the gauge was named dxgi.dll (same crash as desktop). However, when I renamed it to d3d9.dll, it began to work on the laptop. On the desktop, as soon as I get to the fsx preview screen, it says loading effect (I can see sweetfx working), but I immediately then get a CTD (laptop stays running). I suspect my antivirus might have something to do with it, as it injects a dll into running processes. But, other than that I have closed any other process which I believe tries to create an overlay.

You can go into your anti-virus program and exclude the fsx directory from scanning.
