Sweet Fx in SpinTires - Graphic Enhancement

Recommended Posts

Some of you already use it for ST or another games.

If you made a cool preset, share it in this post.  :)


For the ones that don't know what's or how to install it, here is the instructions.


SweetFX is a graphics mod which was created by CeeJay.dk of Guru3D. SweetFX allows injection of a suite of post processing shader effects into games. It allows users to modify the processing effects into their games to their liking, making it possible to change the look and mood of the games they play.



SweetFX includes the following shaders:


Bloom: Makes strong lights bleed their light into their surroundings.

Cineon DPX: Makes the image look like it was converted from film to Cineon DPX. Can be used to create a sunny look.

Curves: Contrast adjustments using S-curves - without causing clipping.

Dither: Applies dithering to simulate more colors than the monitor can display, which lessens the banding artifacts.

HDR: Mimics an HDR tonemapped look.

Lift Gamma Gain: Adjust brightness and color of shadows, midtones and highlights.

LumaSharpen: Sharpens the image, making details easier to see.

Sepia: Sepia tones the image.

SMAA Anti-aliasing: Anti-aliases the image using the SMAA technique.

Splitscreen: Enables the before-and-after splitscreen comparison mode.

Technicolor: Makes the image look like it was processed using a three-strip Technicolor process.

Tonemap: Adjust gamma, exposure, saturation, bleach and defog.

Vibrance: Intelligently saturates/desaturates the pixels depending on their original saturation.

Vignette: Darkens the edges of the image to make it look more like it was shot with a camera lens.




Unzip and install Flight Fx anywhere.

Unzip the file SweetFx.zip in the Root folder of Spintires.


(Is the same steps for whatever game, feel free to try it on whatever DirectX game, won't work on OpenGL ones )


This application won't affect your MP or achievements.


How to Use It:


-With the game closed run the program Flight Fx, click on Register New Game, search for SpinTires.exe in the Root folder.

-Click Enable SweetFx

-Where it says Shaders ON/OFF click on the box and press a key that you don't use often (Numpad 0 in my case)

-Where it says Reload Shaders click on the box and press a key that you don't use often (Numpad 1 in my case)

-Open the game and make it window mode so you can interact with FlightFx easily.

-Activate splitscreen to compare the results easily.

Just press numpad 0 to turn on and off the effects and check the changes or numpad 1 for reaload the shader.


And that's it, just play around with the values and presets until you find a configuration that fits you.

After you made a nice preset, just close the FlightFx. The Effect will stay working. 


I will add a preset made by BlaizZz.


Note: Flight Fx is a SweetFx Configurator made for Rise of Flight, and I chose it instead of the regular Configurator cause the friendly interface.

This can really make the nights challenging.
