    I hope this qualifies for this forum. I am in fact looking for some type of guide or instruction but not how to play the game but how to make it look the best. If this does not qualify please let me know where to post it.

    My 2 problems are with Anti-Aliasing and Lighting. I contacted support and they said as far as anti-aliasing they use a hybrid TXAA. If I wanted to add to it or replace it I can force it in my drivers. BTW I use Nvidia so I did force FXAA and set it to enhance the default AA and it is a bit better. I was then wondering if I could inject a second AA, as I have read can be done with TXAA and FXAA when set to Enhance, like SMAA. I found several SMAA injectors but they seem old. I am not sure what the latest build SMAA is in now but would love to know.

    The second this is shader and light quality. While I am well aware this will never look like Skyrim I have seen pictures of people using SweetFX to improve lighting effect and they look amazing! The problem is I can't get it to work. If I use just SweetFX I get some obscure DX11 error and the game crashes. If I use SweetFX Configurator the same thing happens. I then read someone saying the in order to get it to work with ESO you need to run it through RadeonPRO. Well I did, and it worked, but no matter how I change the SweetFX settings there is NO difference with it on or off so I don't know what I am doing wrong. Then there is HDR, which I can turn on in SweetFX if I could get it to work.

    I guess I am wondering where I can look or what I can try next. Can I inject SMAA and or HDR without SweetFX or can someone who, perhaps has it working, run me through how they got it SweetFX working with ESO?

    Thanks so much for any info!

    No, Taylor. I've had no problem playing ESO. But, I saw your email exchanges and winced at the canned responses that their customer service gave you. It was like they had no clue & were just emailing responses from their training manual, hoping that something would work. ack!

    Maybe you could suggest to their higher management that they should have an ESO manager responsible for trouble-shooting Customer Service problems, using your experience as an example. That would bring the matter to the attention of someone who actually wants ESO to succeed & probably get the problem with your account promptly resolved.

    Here's a guide on how to setup SweetFX in ESO. Haven't tried it myself, but looking at the guide it seems easy enough.
