SweetFX Digital Vibrance for CSGO.

Moderator Notice

Modifying the EXE and DLL files can result in VAC bans when scanned. This has never been confirmed safe by Valve but some users claim to have used it for 1000+ hours ingame without any issues.

Use at own risk.

Update Added New uninstallation instructions! - 11 months ago

  • Don't use SweetFX Uninstall.bat! READ THE UNINSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS PLEASE!
  • Use vibrance.gui (google it) instead of this if you have any problems!!

If SweetFX stopped working for you, or you can't get it to work then my advice is that you use vibrance.gui instead (link) if you have an Nvidia OR AMD graphics card.

Steelseries Engine 3 & Razer Synapse are Stopping Sweetfx from working! Close them if you want to use Sweetfx.

Also try this:

  1. Verify integiry of game cache 2. Install SweetFX 4. Run the game, should say "First time setup" 3. Now sweetfx should work.

IF IT STOPS WORKING THEN PLEASE CHECK YOUR VIDEO OPTIONS AND MAKE SURE THAT MULTISAMPLING IS DISABLED!!!! OR IT WONT WORK.

FOLLOW THE UNINSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS BELLOW! UNINSTALL.BAT MIGHT NOT WORK FOR YOU! KEEP IN MIND THAT IF YOU UNINSTALL SWEETFX AND YOU FORGET TO REMOVE ALL THE FILES THEN CSGO WON'T LAUNCH! SEE BELOW

You will NOT get VAC banned because of SweetFX, I have been using it for more than 2000 hours of CSGO on 5 accounts without anything happening.

To Install: (With Pictures)

To Uninstall:

  • Go to your CS:GO Directory
  • DELETE ALL OF SWEETFX'S FILES! IF YOU LEAVE ANY FILES THEN THE GAME WON'T START!! UNINSTALL.BAT ISNT WORKING FOR EVERYONE SO JUST DO IT MANUALLY.
  • Here are all the files in /common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive: http://i.imgur.com/nAaGDAS.jpg (8 FILES AND THE SWEETFX FOLDER!) MAKE SURE YOU DONT DELETE THE "d3d9.dll" IN THE MAIN CSGO FOLDER!!!
  • Also delete these 2 files in the "bin" folder (d3d9.dll and injector.ini): http://i.imgur.com/DAtlYE7.jpg

Allowed in:

  • Matchmaking, Community servers, Altpug, CEVO.

Not allowed in:

  • ESEA, ESL.

Notes:

  • To toggle it in the game press Scroll Lock.
  • You can adjust the saturation by editing SweetFX_settings.txt (look for #Define Vibrance 1.0 and change it to 0.6 or something)
  • Disable SweetFX before opening your Hammer Map Editor or it might crash.
  • DO NOT USE IT WITH RADEON PRO. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. IT WON'T WORK WITH RADEON PRO.

If it doesn't work:

  • IT DOESN'T WORK WITH TEAMSPEAK/MUMBLE/XFIRE OVERLAYS, disable the overlay and sweetfx will work.
  • IT DOESN'T WORK WITH STEELSERIES ENGINE 3 AND RAZER SYNAPSE!
  • you can try to close any programs that you don't need in your notifications area (bottom right of taskbar), one of them could be the reason that is blocking sweetfx.

Most Pro Players Use Digital Vibrance

The reasons for that are explained by Markeloff here: Markeloff's settings
For Example: f0rest Get Right Friberg fifflaren Xizt ceh9 Scream Shox

Sweetfx will give you the same Digital Vibrance inside CS:GO only, without affecting any other applications :D!

Alternatives to SweetFX:

  • For Nvidia & AMD users you can use "Vibrance Gui" instead of SweetFX (it works on ALL THE SERVICES! including ESEA/ESL/CEVO/FACEIT) And I'm using vibrance.gui now
  • Keep in mind that Sweetfx is the only program that works with Laptops and with older graphics cards that don't have a vibrance slider, So if the other programs don't work for you SweetFX will be useful for you.

    As it says in the title, ive been banned for using SweetFX, wich is ment to make your Digital Vibrance more colourfull, and it says on the website (http://csgo.gamebanana.com/gamefiles/3415), that i wont get VAC-Banned by using this.

    I've used it for about a week, and as it says on the website 'You will NOT get VAC banned because of SweetFX, I have been using it for more than 2000 hours of CSGO on 5 accounts without anything happening.' i should'nt be banned for it.

    I'm 100% sure there are still some files from sweetfx still not removed.

    If you keep some files and remove some then csgo won't start.

    I have follow this instruction :

        Go to your CS:GO Directory and Double Click on "SweetFX Uninstall.bat"
        Delete "SweetFX Uninstall.bat" after it finishes. (some people might not have this .bat, just redownload the .zip to get it)
    

    sometimes that .bat file isn't given enough permissions, can you please add me on steam and i'm sure i'll fix this for you really quickly.

    I can't play CS:GO anymore after I installed this mod. I try to verify the integrity of the gamer but when I try to launch the game, it directly closes.

    Solution ?

    uninstall it and dont use it. use vibrance.gui instead please.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled CS: GO but impossible to start the game ...
