    Hello,

    Can anyone help me? or at least redirect me somewhere I could find a trouble shooting thread on how to make this mod work? Don't tell me to google it, I did, and all I find was "A modder found an amazing bla bla bla" 50 times.

    so first thank you for all of your good work but i dont wand any camera change i just want the graphical improvements
    i know people asked this like a million times but can you re do the instructions and be more specific.
    what do i need to put where and do i need the folder "patch_unpack"?

    I just played for a couple minutes to see if I installed sweetFX correctly (of course I didn't -.- ) and saw this little graphics "glitch". It's no big deal but just take a closer look at the cables.

    My goal is to incorporate a one click install for TheWorse, just waiting to hear from him if he wants it.

    Not your watch_dogs shortcut, but the shortcut to the actual uPlay program.

    Hey dude, i was a fan of what you did with crysis 3. I remember how horribly the game ran but u tweaked some settings in the CFG files and got rid of some high demanding effects which barely gave any graphically improvements but yet took a lot of power. Disabling those useless things gave me like a 20fps boost without loss of any graphical fidelity.

    My request is, could u not do the same for WD and in ur own way optimize it? Hey if u got the time why not help us newbies out :p

    Guys I tried the game without the patch and the timescale is different... With the worse mod it's too short. Someone can help me to set it?

    I already created this, but mind you it will conflict with this mod since I use the runtime setting.

    I think the confusion is that you are not explaining what you did very well "want to use it easy" gives no detail about anything... Want to use what easy? What happens if I don't use it? ect...

    -It is my understanding you added/edited variables in the 'ultra' preset to make the game look different. In order to use these tweaks the preset HAS to be set to ultra and no graphics settings can be changed.

    -If the ultra preset is not used 'Bloom & Headlight Shadows' will still work, but the various xml tweaks will not be available.

    -If you use the 'Ultra' preset in game (and do not change any of the graphical settings), you do not need to edit your gamerprofile.xml.

    - If you change your 'Quality=ultra' and make your Gamerprofile.xml 'read only' changing settings in game will only make them temporary. When you enter the game the next time, the settings will be reverted back to 'Ultra'

    - None of the xml tweaks were used on any of the other graphics profiles (only ultra). So if you use Custom, Low, Med, High you will not see his XML changes only the bloom/headlights.


    ----

    The Worse, I still think you should add the xml changes to the 'custom' profile as well (but don't define the quality, keep them as PC) that way people can use the ultra preset or custom and your changes will still work. Anyway, am I missing something there?
