Works on Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 – for both Nvidia and Amd cards!!! You need to use Sweetfx 1.4 /1.5.1 + Efx injector enabled to run it on windows 8.1 64bit dx11…

Question by Fernando P: What Windows Do I Install?
This is my Laptop: amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-dv7-4060us-17-3-Inch-Laptop/dp/B003KN3IXU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1287115073&sr=8-1
i want to play games like GTA 4 , Mafia II, Arcania Gothic 4, Battlefield Bad Company, Crysis…
I’ve thinked on installing windows 7 ultimate 64 but i’m not sure, because i always had bad experiences with all the windows (you guys know what i mean), for example i bought vista ultimate and it was the worst thing ever, so, please i need help choosing a windows for m gaming laptop.

  1. Game wont run with this. error (0xc0000142)

  2. Normally not a fan of Sweetfx. But this is fantastic!

  3. Thanks for sharing this method of getting SweetFX to work with Thief. I
    felt that the game *seriously* needed some help from SweetFX to look less
    dull and blurry. With version 1.3 of the game, installing it to
    BinariesWin64 didn’t work. I had to install it to Binaries2Win64.
    It’s very odd, but it works for me.


  5. How did you get it to work. No matter what I do sweetfx does not take. I
    use the 32bit exe file and I have steam overlay off and still doesn’t take.
    I have the R9 280x and Win7 if it helps

  6. Can not run in x86, but 64 runs. (((( I do not understand why! Just 64 mode
    the game lags!

  7. And you can do that on x86 version Thief? In version 64 runs and 86 no.

  8. i tried using the EFX wrapper on 32 and 64 bit and it doestn work and i
    tried radeon pro on the 32 bit and it also doestn work. help? in on 8.1

  9. Game keeps crashing at loading screen… AND I GOT ALL DRIVERS updated to
    Funny thing is when i had my old drivers the game ran BUT when i updated
    for it to run better it capt crashing after loading… Sooo i redownloaded
    the game deleted every save and shit still dosent work. BLOCKED it from
    firewall, Nothing.
    and even ran it as admin. EVEN PUT EVERYTHING TO VERY LOW… same
    JUST to add, i Can run crysis 3 on high with like 70fps

  10. Cool! Where to now change the settings? Enable SMAA example. In standart
    SweetFX all settings are SweetFX_settings.txt and now where?

  11. It changed totally the same way such as Dishonored did it when I applied
    the sweetfx.
    The improvement is very noticeable

  12. where extactly are you placing the files? thief/binaries/win64?

  13. Windows 7 is good. It is similar in appearance to Vista, but it performs infinitely better.

  14. windows 7
    but if you have not bout that computer yet get this its way faster.
