I've just tried this mod tonight along with completely maxed out settings at 1920x1200, including Ultra textures and TXAAx4, and not only is the game far less stuttery than before (there is still a little hitching while driving though) on those same settings but the lighting and DOF are fantastic and really enhance the game beyond what was there by default. Thanks TheWorse. I really do think the DOF adds to the game while also masking distant pop in. The only side-effect is the odd bit of flickering on shadows and car headlights but it's no big deal. The question is will these "mod" be officially added back into the game because there is no apparent performance penalty even with cars casting shadows from Aiden. In fact the game seems to run better for me even though I am capped at 30 FPS until the stutter fix patch comes out.
