SweetFX2.0&Reshade error X3000 8 months 2 weeks ago #1

As the title says using sweetfx2.0&Reshade......

Have actually been using it with a few sweetFX1.5 presets and it works well - but for one preset in particular
I get the error message "sweetfx_settings (1,1):error X3000:syntax error: unexpected "identifier"

Anyone know what it means and how to fix it? (not sure if it helps but the .txt file can be found in the link below in the download preset section)

Save the file in ANSI encoding. It's stored in UTF with BOM and ReShade can't handle that.

thanks for the reply - but how precisely can I save it in ANSI encoding? (note its already saved in a .txt file and obviously just trying to cut and paste it into the settings .txt file?)

Open the file in Notepad, go to File > Save as and select "ANSI" in the encoding drop down next to the save button.

Just tried it and the .txt was already in ANSI format - but I saved it again ensuring it was set to ANSI - still exactly the same error message when I drop it into the sweetFX folder inside the game?anything else I can try?
note also this particular preset was made for sweetFX1.5 - I am running it in v2.0 as the title says (although not sure this would be an issue as am running a few 1.5 presets using sweetfx 2.0 without any issues?

glad to see its not just me having the problem - in my case its strange as all the other v1.5 presets I have tried work with v2.0 - its just this one that gives the error message......................................note also crosire's earler suggestion does not work my v1.5 preset was already in ANSI format.....................

Then the preset is broken and the author messed up the file so that ReShade is unable to parse it. Without seeing the preset it is hard to help.

It's totally broken. It's missing a bunch of characters at the beginning. Add "/*" to the beginning of the file, so it reads "/*ame:Battlefield 4".

thanks crosire - now working and its a great preset!
also offtopic questions (as am now trying to get reshade/sweetFx working with most of my games) - so far been unsuccessful with dayofinfamy, insurgency and rising storm 2 - just wondering if they should be reshade compatible? (one of them from memory dayofinfamy the battle eye seems to block it - the others reshade just doesnt seem to fire up at the start).......................................
