1. How to install SweetFX for DayZRP!

What is SweetFX:

SweetFX is a plugin for ArmA 2, it makes your game look better without a high FPS drop (0-2 FPS).

How to install it:

1) Download the files: Download!

2) Unzip "ARMA II.rar" into the following directories = /arma 2 operation arrowhead/ and also into /arma 2/

3) Open your game, play a mission,DayZ,... to see if it is working. You need to press F12 to enable SweetFX

4) If it looks bad adjust "Gamma" and "Brightness" in the option menu.

Customize SweetFX:

You can also customize SweetFX by opening "SweetFX_Settings.txt".

Having problems?

- Download the newest version from Guru3D. Should be version 1.5.(This version)

- Extract the files into your ARMA2 OA and ARMA2 directory

- Make duplicates of all .fx .dll and the injector.ini files and stick them in your "beta" folder within the ARMA2 OA directory. (found in the ARMA2 OA directory > expansions > beta)

- Try installing CBA (Community Base Addons.(Download) Launch regular ArmA 2 with CBA enabled, check if F12 is working.

How does it look?

No problem!

Are you in TS? I think I did a bad thing....

I will be in TS around 8 PM CET. What did you do?

I followed the instructions and now my Arma will not launch at all? RP launcher says it can not locate my copy of Arma either? I did manage to use commander and override the directories only for it to say that bad key was given during setup.... help....

How anyone is able to play without this is beyond me. Works in almost 99% of the games. I use it for all that does not require a 3d .dll fix.

Some random images which shows the variety of the tool.

WARNING: You will get addicted to it and other games will seem boring and pale without it ;)

How can graphical improvements not affect FPS?

Thats VERY simple, SweetFX is just let me just call it a sort of overlay for the game that boost the lighting,saturation,...
