I've never heard of one for this game, and I'd be extremely cautious about editing anything in this game due to anti-cheats (meaning I wouldn't modify a single thing).

Luckily the game still looks great four years after launch. If you power up your video card, run max everything with 150% res scaling at 1440p, it looks as good as nearly anything newer.

You run the risk of Punkbuster banning your account and they're very likely to never lift your ban.

I've seen people running sweetfx for years without any problems, never tried it myself but I can see how some people would like it.

sweetfx is safe to use, i've been running it for a while. it makes it easier to see your own crosshair and the targets through the unnecessary visual clutter of bf. it's mainly for the vehicles, pretty much everything works on foot.

Basically, install any overlay at your own risk. If you get picked up by Punkbuster you are pretty much shit out of luck.

Let us not forget that is against the Terms of Service to use these types of programs.

This is straight from the TOS
"Use or distribute unauthorized software programs or tools, such as "auto" software programs, "macro" software programs, "cheat utility" software program or applications, exploits, cheats, or any other game hacking, altering or cheating software or tool."

Sweetfx is game altering software.

Hmmm admitting your using a Macro? Then saying it clears out visual clutter of the game making it easier to see? Sounds to me like your using a third party program to give you an advantage over other players. Sounds like cheating to me. Could that be why your so good with a Tank? Also sounds like a banning offense.

That's not a macro, that's not how a macro works and there is 0 evidence of anyone cheating. There is no need to hackusate people without reason, unless you want to change your name to Obocecha.

Keep this discussion civil or comments will start getting removed.

well i don't think that's cheating since you can achieve almost the same results by messing with your display settings and a bit of tweeking inside the nvidia control panel (Adjust video color settings),but i don't want to do this because it'll make it harder to work on my drawings since i would have to recalibrate my monitor after i'm done playing.

what sweetfx does in this game is just applyng a bit more contrast over all, and some shaders, so there's a wider color range. some persons even make the game look a bit less colorful, or desaturated.(making the game feel a bit more sad) (for example, a gun on the snow will be a bit more visible since is black and sweetfx would make it pop a bit more than can also be achieved by contrast adjustments).

Your right in one respect Cuban. I misspoke, it's not a macro, it's just a program that changes the way the game is viewed. It alters the video feed on the users screen. Which in turn alters the gameplay. So your saying altering the way the game is seen by using a 3rd party program that is clearly not a part of the game. Is not giving a person an advantage over one that is not using it?

Also in my opinion, this is not a matter of civility, it is a matter of following E.A. Games Terms of Service. This is Third party software that alters the view of the game.

Who is altering the gameplay? The gameplay is literally not being altered. Nothing about the game files is being touched, therefore EA ToS are not being breached.

My monitor has a "Game Mode" which sharpens everything. Oh no, I have advantage over people who don't have "Game Mode" on their monitor, let me go and ban myself.

The word, though it is a few years old from an E.A Games community manager, that is now retired.

urban, the kind of guy that reads the fine print.
PrintScreen screenshot didn't work, it has the map displayed, as if holding the M (map) key, should of used console and screenshot.render.
i can totally do without sFx, it's just a part of tweaks to get the desired visual balance. stuff like monitor, nvidia/amd panel, windows and game gfx settings.

The community managers are saying exactly what I said. Use it at your own risk, if you get picked up by FF or PBBANS then you're SOL.

Nobody is cheating, using macros, altering game files (outside of ehancing graphic capabilities that are already part of the game and which can be set if someone chooses to).

Ok ban was a strong word.

Still my point is SweetFX is against the TOS. EA agrees with me.  Apparently so do you, though you refuse to admit it.

"Nobody is cheating, using macros, altering game files (outside of ehancing graphic capabilities that are already part of the game and which can be set if someone chooses to)."

I realize you like to have the last word Cuban. So go ahead and have it. I'm done I made my point, and it is correct.

server community which shall not be named has been on 60Hz with their competing "#1" server for months without issues, just saying.. may want to talk to NFO if your equipment can't hang.
godsowndelta 19th Feb
ya just posted a normal post\inquiry, oops my bad
Angry_Cuban13 19th Feb
Most of the servers you play on 60hZ are probably infantry maps only like Locker, Metro, etc. When you start playing maps like Firestorm, Oman, the water maps, that is when it gets crappy for everyone else
elcorbu 19th Feb
i notice a improved difference in hit registration and smoothness of gameplay from 30 to 60. as other servers seem to run fine on it, wonder if its an issue with the mig box/provider
TwinGunsLLP 19th Feb
60hz is terrible, it doesn't work on #1. We've tried it several times.
Angry_Cuban13 19th Feb
That's not my call, Brian will have to decide that. We also need feedback from more than one person to make these type of changes.
jeffambo 19th Feb
can you just try it for 1 day?
jeffambo 19th Feb
burdel is a polish HC rush server thats 60hz and even though i get 160 ping it still feels better than any non-60hz server i play in
jeffambo 19th Feb
can you try 60hz one more time? Everyone I play with had never had a problem, they have worked out a lot of kinks since they introduced it

60 hZ has been tried multiple times and most recently a year ago. EVERYONE complained of lag and general shitty gameplay
jeffambo 18th Feb
how much more does it cost to run the server at 60hz vs 40hz, ill donate if you guys can turn it up, do you take credit cards, how do i donate?
jeffambo 18th Feb
you dont get shot behind corners and it just feels so much more 'true'
jeffambo 18th Feb
it makes the game soooo much better and they have worked out all the problems it used to cause
