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 9 Sep 2014 - Added Uninstall.bat

  • you can uninstall sweetfx using the new .bat now
  • After over 10,000 downloads and no one saying they got banned because of it. I'm now one hundred percent sure sweetfx is safe.

Sorry but sweetfx doesn't seem to be stable anymore since a few csgo patches ago, for some people it isn't working on each game start.

my advice is that if you have an Nvidia OR AMD graphics card then you can use the vibrance.gui program (link) instead.

sorry but i can't reply to every person about sweetfx, and i don't even know what is causing this problem :\ gl&hf

New version of Razer Synapse is Stopping Sweetfx from working! Close it if you want to use Sweetfx with CSGO.

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.

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 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)

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.
  • 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.
  • Seems like Razer Synapse 2.0 is causing the Sweetfx to not work. please try closing it.

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 users you can use "Vibrance Gui" instead of SweetFX (it works on ESEA/ESL/Leetway).
  • If you are on AMD and want a program to turn on Saturation with you can use AMD Saturation toggler (also works on ESEA/ESL/Leetway)
  • 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.

    If this infact causes VAC bans to occur then I'd seriously not download it. Lol. :P

    Instead if you got NVIDIA graphic card you could change settings there to make games look more colorful and have extra digital vibrance. :)

    Posted by teo265 After doing some research, this indeed is 100% VAC safe. SweetFX doesn't edit the .exe or any of the DLLs. It adds the vibrance layer through DirectX. People have been trying to scare others from using SweetFX in many games, such as DayZ. Been using SweetFX in DayZ for 1,5 years now, and not once have I been banned.

    Exactly.

    I asked the admins here to remove the "moderator notice" but they told me that I can't be sure that it's safe.

    The problem is that I'm 100% sure that it's safe now since i used it in all of my accounts while playing matchmaking (over 1000 games of matchmaking) and didn't get banned on any of them.

    Anyways thanks for supporting my point.
