    Great job. I still haven't seen a gameplay where Ultra Textures ran like in this one.

    Make sure to release and I'll sure have it downloaded and will thank you a lot.

    You think that would make a noticeable difference here in my GTX 770 2GB?

    I mean, I don't dream about running WD at Ultra Textures, but I would be happy if my game ran at High Textures just like you did at Ultra in your video.

    Also, one little thing, you've tested it at the most stuttered part of the map, so your modification/patch really works. :)

    Hey TheWorse

    What exactly are you talking about here ? :

    "You'll be able to choose if you want default lensflares, anamorphic lensflares or SpotLight Volumes (Volumetric light)"


    You mean every light in game can be volumetric light, like every street lamp?, how can it be interchangable if lensflare are only applied on the point the light is coming from, so top of the street lamp and volumetric light is something that's ''hanging'' in air ??

    Wouldn't it be ideal to include both volumetric and lens flare at the same time? I don't know if I understand corectly.

    Here's a pic to show the fps... I was only getting 28- 33 before now i don't drop below 40 and it runs real smooth:)

    [​IMG]


    Lads follow the guide


    Here is a way that i just found to get my game running smooth until 0.8 is released.

    In the link i have provided contains TheWorse0.7+ upd1.3 + BossDoFv2+ My XML..


    Now the steps you have to follow are:


    First set up your game to through RadeonPro....It works with Nvidia/Amd

    When you have your game step up with RadeonPro... Then

    Make sure you have your game selected in RadeonPro and go to the visual tab
    and check FXAA + SMAA and set them to Ultra then scroll down to Anisotropic Filtering
    And check that and set it to 8x.

    Then move to the tweaks tab in RadeonPro and Scroll down and check disable Aero.
    If you are already using SweetFx leave that tab alone..... then exit


    Now BACK UP the patch files and the xml that you already use just in case.

    Then put the files in the rar provided to the right folders.


    Now remember to not change anything in the game settings or it will overwrite the xml.

    If you realy need to change something then change it though in the xml.

    I have all the hud etc turned of and AA + DOF + Motionsickness off.

    The FXAA + SMAA set to ultra that you are running in RadeonPro will give you less jaggies with the same performance as temp SMAA in game.


    Here's the link....

    There is fog in streets, its reduced by default, and I don't know the way to increase it yet along with the particles. There is no possible way to decrease the ammount of particles only to increase the respawn time.

    Volumetric headlights was something showed at e3 2012 but was completely removed from the game, so I had to rework the headlights code along with the lensflares one to make the effect work properly.

    E3 explosion files are still there but seems that the game is using different textures and different xml settings for it. It's still impossible to make it work yet, unless someone finds a REAL way to do it.

    Not sure why the screen shot through MSI afterburner doesn't look that great, but anyways here's a bug I found. I've been seeing people with lime green hair all over the map (like the women in the background) as well as lime green heads. In addition there is a woman's face texture plastered on the texture for the bricks at this location, the first time i've seen that.

    Let me know if anyone else is seeing this is well in their game.

    I have Worse 0.7 mod+Ubisoft update+BossDoFv2 installed into my game as well as a SweetFX preset and downloaded XML from the user Downtown

    I was cheering for Ubisoft with their E3 presentation of new game like Far Cry 4 and Rainboz Six Siege but I will not buy any of there games again unless they are on sale. I am not even pissed. I'm dissapointed. I was excited for watch dogs. I thought they were going to put more care detail and activities like gta but I had that feeling that they wouldn't. I was expecting the graphics to look better than E3 2012 after the delay but they ended up looking worse and I STILL preordered the game with the season pass for $90.

    Ubisoft needs to get there act together because they have potential but to hold back PC platform just to have parity with the current/last gen systems is a crime.

    @TheWorse

    If I was to combine the stutter fix by sunset, would I still be able to use the config tool?
    Does 0.8v use E3 wind and E3 bloom?

    Thank you.

    This mod is truly amazing! I can't wait to see what's next. Thanks, TheWorse!
    I am having one issue unrelated to TheWorse's mod. I am using a SweetFX preset with RadeonPro, and it has worked fine even after the patch. However, Watch Dogs suddenly crashes on startup whenever I use SweetFX. Sometimes it will load, but SweetFX doesn't work. I have tried different presets, and they have not worked. Please help!
