Yes, it ought to be compatible with any Stalker mod, and in fact any DX9 or DX10 game. DX11 games have compatibility issues, and reshade is working around this.

I use sweetfx with every game possible because it just makes them look so much nicer. Even some essential SMAA and lumasharpen has virtually no performance hit and improves the quality of textures and details so much.

Here are my settings I use with SoC--I used them for several mods, the last of which was Fotograf with the ENB (you can use SweetFX and ENB together with dll chaining).

In CoP, the HDR effect screws up texture details. Some colors show up as black, most notable in the item icons. Survarium does this as well, strangely.

There are other settings at the sweetfx database you guys can look through, too

SweetFX does make things look nicer. To Clear the air what I meant when I said that it dosen't like soup is that it lags a lot more It does run though and that's all that matters.

Play around with your settings! Disable stuff like HDR or bloom effects, which can increase the load and drop performance for lower-end users or intensive scenes. Last time I tried stalkersoup it was still using shaders based on the skyshaders or shadermax or whatever, and it had its own postfx effects you could mess with such as saturation. So if you're using their color effects, you could disable color correction effects in sweetfx.

SweetFX can be edited in realtime while you run a game, so you can alt-tab, disable some settings, then tab back in and reload the shader settings and see if a performance jump happens. The reload key can be chosen in the injector config file for sweetfx

Yeah I know about that, and I would love to have the ability to toy around with the settings but Soup' is broken at the moment and crashes like two minutes in

Maybe give NS mod with the OP-2? Stalkersoup's author said they won't be incorporating these latest changes, so I guess it's out of date already
