    Post Processing Tweaks

    I've been playing around with some graphics stuff, trying to rid of a bit of the blurriness etc.

    Step 1) Add these files to your Guild Wars 2 folder (settings have been tweaked for GW2):
    https://rapidshare.com/files/2984840924/FXAA Tool.zip

    Step 2) Disable FXAA in game (and in drivers if forced on).

    Step 3) Use Pause|Break to toggle it on/off.

    Step 4) Give your opinion

    Yeah I did. The main problem is with blur, sepia etc, not AA.

    Changed OP to no longer recommend disabling the standard post processing.
    I just took a trip to the Grove, and turning it off kills a lot of the nice light effects.

    Oh. Did the MSAA injector work okay? How high did you get it before you experienced a big performance hit?

    Yeah it worked fine.
    I don't really get a performance hit from anything with my GTX 680

    Oh, I misread you
    I thought you meant SMAA injector. You don't need an injector for MSAA, you can just force it in your drivers.

    Yeah, I agree, I'm not a fan of what it did to the water. The rest of it looks amazing though.

    Not the OP, but if it's anything similar to DarkD3 (I believe it is) then yeah. Just chuck it right in there.

    Just in with the rest of the GW2 files.
    injFX_Shaders stays in it's own folder though.

    Graphics card override works for GW2? It hardly ever works anymore.
