    I did some testing with my rig and here's what I found out about stuttering:

    This is on 1080p with the 0.8 mod with everything turned on and no sweet fx in the middle of the city at night.
    Stuttering severity between 1 to 10, 10 being unplayable.

    Test 1: High Textures, Temporal SMAA, everything else maxed, VRAM usage is between 1980Mb to 2020Mb. Stuttering: 5

    Test 2: High Textures, Temporal SMAA, everything else low, VRAM usage between 1940 to 2010Mb. Stuttering: 3

    Test 3: Medium Textures, Temporal SMAA, everything else maxed, VRAM usage between 1970Mb to 2020Mb. Stuttering: 1

    Test 4: Medium Textures, Temporal SMAA, everything else low, VRAM usage between 1940Mb to 1990Mb. Stuttering: 0

    I really don't get this game...

    COOL! A fellow Swede! Hej du! Yeah I've been doing some support like that, when everybody else was on vacation. In my company, we outsourced to India, which is complete bollocks, but that is fine. The revenue looked fine until last year, when a 20 hrs estimated job ended up at 350 hrs because of offshore inadequacy. So now thankfully times they are a-changing.

    That is why we seem to see eye-to-eye regarding the problem that is 10 inches from the screen lol.

    Agreed, way too dark and the light sources too bright! I prefer your preset (minus vignette and border) ;)

    Thank you, very kind of you. I won't be able to try until later on though as I'm at work now, but truly thanks.

    Will let you know if this resolves it later.

    I'm not completely noob... :)
    I just wonder what is this parameter.
    I tried that with my current settings. It is sure that I would have no stuttering. The game is optimized with NVIDIA GeForce Experience. In GameProfile.xml, is there another parameter has to change?

    Alright, so I have tried scouring this thread for a solution to this problem and the only one I was able to find was poorly worded and it was really hard for me to understand what the heck the guy was telling me to. This problem is when I go to try to apply the settings via the tool.exe(even when ran in administrator) the "run file" prompt immediately hides behind the whole phone application and no matter what I try, I can't bring it to the front to run it and actually apply the patch.

    I'm sorry, i'm out of ideas now. This is the latest one? The one that's 800mb with the maldo texture fix?

    (Sigh)

    Don't get me wrong, 0.8 looks great.
    But I ran a comparison between it and 0.6 and 0.6 still looks better.

    I'm sorry to be like this, TheWorse, I really am. I have the utmost respect and support for the work you're doing and I understand the time and effort you've put into this, but I just can't understand why you had to make changes to stuff that was already perfect.

    If I recall you even said that you don't want it to look like E3 anymore. Why?!
    What is it that makes you so ashamed of it looking like that? The reason people want it to look like the E3 demo is because it's better.

    If it looked better than E3 I wouldn't mind at all. 0.6 looked almost exactly like the demo and less downgraded, whereas 0.7 and 0.8 just somehow don't in my eyes.

    I'm sorry, but I'm still going to stick 0.6 until another version comes along that either looks like E3 again or better.

    Try high textures and fxaa or no anti aliasing and everything on high or ultra, LOD on high especially and you should have way less stuttering. AA plays into it a lot too. The game will look better with high textures and no aa than it does on medium textures with AA.

    Or try maldos fix and put the textures at medium, it'll still be a mixture of ultra textures and medium textues and the stuttering should be even less. Then you might get away with everything on ultra and AA up a bit but fxaa is your best bet as it is the least demanding.

    Let me point something out to some people. While it is completely fine that you guys want to try new mods and configurations and stuff like that, it is quite boring to have to deal with your incessant nagging that you're a noob and it doesn't work, please help me.

    If you are not comfortable opening up Microsoft Office Word and creating a template from scratch, or optimizing your computer by changing pagefile location etc, then you might have trouble figuring out how to work a patch like this.

    There are three lessons to learning that I strongly recommend you try, BEFORE asking anyone else:
    1) Be interested in learning and mastering the tools which you utilize
    2) READ the information that is available regarding the stuff you want to do
    3) If you cannot find the information you are looking for, SEARCH for it

    It is really not that hard. I am not even a hard-ass. I'm a gentle sort of bloke. It is just that going back a couple of pages in this thread I see the same questions over and over again, and the same answers from those kind souls who like to repeat them.

    I swear this same sort of blanked-eyed non-brain-activity is exactly what Watch_Dogs is about. Think for your Self, use your Brain!

    Woww!!

    Very nice TW. Your configurator are working pretty good here.

    I did one setup, works like a charm! 40-50fps very fluid!

    THX! TW+MALDO+VAAS!
