    Hi! Been lurking around here for a while now and decided to sign up now to personally say that so far TheWorse's 0.97 is the best looking mod so far right now. The fog brings out a lot of atmosphere, the rain really hits the cyberpunk feeling nicely and the bloom + color grading looks way better than the washed out default looks. The heavy performance issues are the only thing that's stopping me from playing the game fully right now, but I've seen your blog post that a quick hotfix is already about to be uploaded soon so I'm happy. Just a personal gripe is the camera when looking upwards is too weird, but I managed to tweak that myself out personally to bring back the default camera. Looking forward definitely on the hopefully most stable and finished 1.0 release. Keep up the good work!

    SweetFX comes with some presets, and Battlefield 3 is among them, it does nothing unless you copy it over the same location where the game exe and dll hook for SweetFX. So yes it is normal.

    So far I've noticed with V-Sync my FPS goes to 20. I have a GTX 670, so Idk why this is happening. Also when I go borderless my fps on average is about 35.

    There is far to much fog, however during the rain this is perfect. After not so much.

    In the last version (v0.97) during the day looks too white, and I almost can't see anything.

    The performance drops too much also.

    Can you bring back the e3 gas station explosion? Btw the fps drops around 16fps from 35 sometimes for aprox. 5secs, and the cars headlights should have more bloom effect like they should be brighter just an advice :) and i noticed the tree leaves' shadows are flickering and they are huge otherwise really nice mod!

    If you are using my preset and your screen goes black try to disable some of the stuff I've enabled to use. I don't have other solution because it should work just fine.

    @The Worse

    FANTASTIC!

    Colors, physics, I just love the new speed animation to Aiden's coat, rain is more than incredible, so intense and "alive". I say it loses nothing to E3 2012 trailer, except of course, due to Gas station explosion, which is something you can't/haven't yet found how to insert into the game. However, fire sources are now reacting to wind, so many particles and lights. This is what I call "living environment".

    Some pictures I've taken at Medium Textures (Temporal SMAA)/Ultra graphics settings + Maldo Textures merged without overwriting The Worse's patch, which is the setting I use to play. Completely smooth framerate and no stuttering.

    @TheWorse

    Will the version 0.97b whit Maldo's textures overwrites the new textures you've made???

    Thx!

    Excuse me but as far as I've known MalDo's textures are only applied under "High" Texture Settings. Playing with "Medium" textures basically doesn't use MalDo's textures.

    If I'm wrong, may MalDo himself correct me please.

    Please someone tell the software I need to open up patch.dat files so I can put textures into this mod. Thank you!

    Maldo's texture 'hack' replaces several low res textures with high res textures, even in Medium, but with low poly count. Medium and high have a difference in poly count as well.

    0.97b with MalDo textures work just fine.

    I did my best with the performance and the rest so far. Performance should be the same as vanilla with really improved stuttering. I don't really know a more effective way to increase performance without reducing quality. So I'll leave this like it is now.

    This is a comparisson between vanilla and 0.97b

    Interesting, I'm not sure how I feel about the foggy look, I know that Distant DOF can be turned off ingame but the fog has no possible ingame adjustment, correct?

    I'm excited to try it out for the performance benefits!

    interesting... has MalDo confirmed this himself before? I ask because the screenshots from that post look like lower resolution medium textures to me (especially the rainy road textures).
