SweetFX of Guru3D for Assassin's Creed 3

This mod will give your Assassin's Creed 3 a more serious and sinister look. The shadows are more dim that it makes the environment a place for silent killing. This may lead you to a new cinematic experience of the game.

What's SweetFX?

SweetFX is a universal image improvement and tweaking mod, that works with almost any 32bit DirectX 9, 10 or 11 game or application.

It's goal is to provide similar tools for games in realtime, as video processing software provides for movies and videos.


  1. Extract/Unzip archive file

  2. Inside the folder, 'Poot Dis', copy/cut pasta them on the game's directory (Assassin's Creed 3 folder)

  3. On the 'Le Choose' folder, pick the version you like between 'Original' or 'Less Contrast (Shadow - brighter; Light - darker)'

  4. Choose whether you would rather use 'No Vignette' or 'Vignette (Recommended)', and then paste your chosen feature on the same directory

  5. Prepare your Tomahawk

  6. Launch the game

Mod Keys (while in-game)

Keys can be reconfigured in the injector.ini file.

**Print-Screen button** Saves a screenshot named ScreenshotXXXX.bmp in the directory you installed SweetFX to.

**Scroll-Lock button** Switches it ON and OFF. (Note that plug-in starts in ON mode.) Some keyboards (mostly on laptops) don't have a dedicated SCROLL_LOCK button, but require you to hold down the `Fn` button while you press another key to activate Scroll Lock.

**Pause button** Reloads the shader files (for people who'll tweak the shaders)

Notes 'n' Recommendations

  • Mod is best for Summer weather in the game

  • Game's Brightness (on options): 4 - 5

  • Monitor's Brightness: 70% - 100%

  • Mod gives a small rate of FPS Drop

  • Will be tweaking this up by the mean time

  • No need to rate this submission

  • ... what else.

Finally an image injector for the game (since I still can't find an ENB Series for it). I know it's BF3-ish, but somehow it turns out pretty fitting. I find it very fond of tweaking the settings of the mod, so I've made a preset of my own.

I will always and always update this whenever or if ever you guys tell me your suggestions. Go ahead!

Anyway, just enjoy the mod and place your criticisms and suggestions below. I might make a different preset someday, but my current ideas are just typical. (I actually have the AC1-ish preset like what you see in the trailer, but it'll burn your eyes twice more)

I was supposed to add 11 screenshots, but the maximum is 10, so I'll just leave this here.

I also found out that it has this AC: Brotherhood atmosphere whenever I have this mod activated.

This is not yet final by the way. :I

    Posted by meetthespy863 I placed the files but the game crashed instantly when I launched it.

    Un-install it and launch the game. Exit, and then install this setting (major/minor changes on visuals might occur with this setting). Launch the game again.
