Default SweetFX causes game to crash?
I downloaded SweetFX by brntwaffles on tumblr a few months back. My game ran 100% fine, but I didn't see a visual difference. The colors were dull like usual and it didn't do squat, despite all of the needed files being in the main game Bin folder.
So, I decided to download and install the mod again, putting all the files in the Bin folder as instructed to.
I don't know what happened, but I got an error message for a missing dll.
I decided to install the latest version of Direct X. Now the game will crash on startup.
I have Windows 10, no viruses, and no other visual mods.
Please help so I can play again with brighter colors

waste of time using this makes the game actually look worse. you can't make a game with bad gfx from the start look better

I'm trying to delete the SweetFX so I can actually play. Says the folder is in use and other than Origin, nothing sims-related is open.

Okay, you need to remove the SweetFX files, then repair the game, so any missing files are restored. Then the game should run fine.

So be it. Move. ~Jason Bourne

Have you closed Origin and tried to delete them? If not, try it. If you have done that, try closing everything that's open and restarting your computer. Then try deleting the files again.

The folder is most likely set to read-only. Right-click on the Bin folder and choose Properties and untick the read-only box. You can tick it back on after you've repaired the game.
