Post processing shader dont't work
Hello, I'm trying to enable using of external post processing shader (GSDX FX) on the new pcsx2 1.4 but enabling this option in plugin settings do absolutely nothing at all, zero changes to the quality/ filtering of games.

I'm using D3D 11 gsdx with the latest stable 1.4 build, I have path chosen to the shader and .ini file, also ticked "enable external shader" option as well - nothing changes sadly.

you know you have to manual edit the GSdx_FX_Settings with in the shader folder to enabled the features you want right? Just enabling it in PCSX2>GSDX isnt gona do anything

The default settings are also tweaked up a bit, but tried amp it up more and changes finally are visible, altough comparing to DolphinFX / IshiirukaFX on dolphin emu changes are not so big or maybe I'm missing something crucial to make changes more viable...
Do You guys have any preset of some nice settings for GdsxFX shader?
default predefined settings yes, but by defualt only bloom and tone mapping is enabled nothing else is i dont mess with settings i just enable effect
