    You can check their official statement on this matter here:

    https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/support/account/Policy-Third-Party-Programs/first#post354869

    but technically as long as nothing is modified in any way of Game file or gameplay you dont break their ToS. It´s just a  "injector" for directx ....like using a photoshop filters for image but for a game.  It´s been used in other games without getting banned, its even used in the original Gw1 and peoples been using this since beta. I bet they are aware of the using of this mod for the game, you can find it in their official tech forums, Im sure devs would hopp right onto it the second its talked about....

    I can see the difference already! you can take screens in Hi-res bitmap though if you want, just from your gw2 shortcut properties under Target you put -bmp at end like this 

    "C:Program Files (x86)Guild Wars 2Gw2.exe" -bmp

    Enable HDR, some vibrance and then AA and it will look quite good (tweak them to your liking), leave rest as it was set up from the start (IMO). :p

    But they override the dxd.dlls?
    it Was a banable offence in world of Warcraft if i remember correctly..

    Not that its a huge issue, But was just thinking best to get arenas stance before people us it..

    I don't understand why you want to turn a gorgeous game with specific mood into "Tera" like looking game? It looks way better when its foggy...
  • QSatuQSatu WarsawPosts: 1,735Member Uncommon
    Just small information for people using this. gW2 screenshots folder will still have screenshots whid do not show changed made by SweetFX. When you take a screenshot SweetFX makes a bmp file in game's folder.

    Maybe because lot of people didn't like the washed out colours gw2 has,I remember from gw1 how vibrant and bright were the colors .Thanks op,I'll probably give it a try next time I log in .

    It's not. It's low level jotun greatsword. Costs like 200 karma or something.

    All injectors are good, no doubt.

    Looking at the Op's armor to me it smacks of hypocracy on Anets behalf. How tough they are with names, chat, forum verbiage to make it a "family game", you can't help but see the artist uses the red highlight around the breasts, to mimic someone's hands fondling her breasts. It's just calling a spade a spade there. I personally like it, but it shows how bi-polar they even are.

    I've tried SweetFX a few times but unfortunately every time I do the game crashes instantly upon loading...

    Edit: Found the solution. Turn off FXAA (I already have it off) and more importantly, run GW2.exe as administrator. :)

    Um.. all armor is dyable. It looks that way (with the red around the breasts) because that is the dye that person used on that armor. Someone else could use the same chest armor and dye it a few thousand different ways (there are over 350 dyes in the game). It doesn't look that way become some 'hypocritical artists wanted to sexualize it in a supposedly family-friendly game' hehe. Trust me, there are several other chest armor pieces that are far more suggestive and revealing than that one lol.

    Edit: Oh and, GW2 isn't a 'family' game. It's rated T, so some suggestive or revealing armors are expected. But hell at least it isn't as bad as say Tera.

    OP if you are still around please share your settings with me too. I just downloaded after i saw this post. I didn't even know such a mod existed. And i am frankly kind of lost with so many options.

    Thanks in advance.
