No problem bloke, you're just getting too creative there. The Global Settings, and the SweetFX Settings, are indeed different things.
(exampled above in post #13, Global file being 3KB, SweetFX one being 26KB in sizes) You open either one, or the other, "in Notepad" to edit them if desired.
You'll find the best results will come from learning about the features themselves, and trial and error (be careful!) adjusting them to your own suit is, ultimately best.
However, for convenience, people do share The FX Settings around in practice, to show people different configurations that may just work out enough for us to save time.
But again, they are different, and are different things.
Glad to be of some help,
