Skyrim Mod: FXAA Post Process Injector

Skyrim FXAA Post Process Injector mod by [some dude].

Description: Enhance your graphics with a slew of post processing effects, including bloom, sharpen, technicolor, sepia, tonemap, vignette, and more. This amazing mod makes Skyrim more realistic than ever!

How to change settings:

It is very easy to change shader settings. Open injFX_Settings.h with a text editor and adjust the values with care.
Next to each setting is a brief explanation of what it does. You can experiment with the values until you find something that suits your taste.

You do not need to restart your game every time you want to change a setting. Results can be seen by saving the file while alt tabbing or minimizing/maximizing the game. (Full screen only)

PAUSE Key : Enable/Disable Effects



Run the installer and choose which settings you would like. Make sure you double check which directory it is extracting to. It should extract to Skyrim's main directory with the game executable (TESV.exe).

Extract the contents from one of the folders into your main Skyrim directory w/ the game executable. Usually:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim


If you used the installer, uninstall FXAA Post-Process Injector from the list of programs in your Control Panel or by running the uninstaller in your Skyrim directory. If you manually extracted the files, simply delete them. If you don't know which files belong to the mod, there is a screenshot in the Images tab. 


Compatible with both ATI and Nvidia graphics cards.


Make sure you have the latest DirectX runtime installed. Link in mirrors.
If you are experiencing crashes, please set the Skyrim executable (TESV.exe) to run as administrator. 
(Right click TESV.exe > Properties > Compatibility > Check "Run this program as administrator.") 

Turn off any on-screen display programs and monitoring tools such as Fraps, ATI Tray Tools, MSI Afterburner, GPU-Z, XFire etc.

Not related to this mod, but a solution to a common cause of crashing: access the Sound menu from the Control panel. In the playback tab, right click on speakers and select properties. Select the advanced tab on the new screen and select 24 bit, 44100Hz (Studio Quality) from the drop down menu. 

Here's a comprehensive list of problems and solutions not related to this mod that can help you out if you can't identify the cause of your crashing/performance problems. 

Disable v-sync if experiencing sluggish FPS or mouse lag.

Certain SkyrimPrefs.ini graphical tweaks may cause instability and crashes.

Blurry UI text is a side effect of the mod and cannot be fixed. Post-processing affects the entire image, and therefore it is not possible to exclude the UI.
