    Tried last couple of days to play with Ultra texture with my single GTX670 2gb but keep stutter. Yet, even high texture delivers now, love this screen:

    Good screenshots!

    I'm working right now on the intensity of the lights at night, I want to see if I can recreate a lower intensity lights like e3 2012, the actual lighting is really bad at night.

    Well if you look at the videos,both ultra and theworse and also in kadzait24 one but his was not in the video.

    Yes they can be changed/fixed.If you want to play with the settings you can.
    Shadows pop in/out ,shadows appear and disappear with these setting and ranges.So some shadows will disappear as you walk towards them or appear as you walk towards them.Just have to get the settings you like.

    So defaultrenderconfig under <quality id="ultra" I always adjust ultra settings cause that is how I run the game.You can adjust anyone you want low,med,high.With the settings you can fix what was shown in the video's.Use your own values to test.

    <quality id="ultra"
    SunShadowFadeRange="25"
    SunShadowRange0="25"
    SunShadowRange1="75"
    SunShadowRange2="355"

    If you want to know,then these are the settings that kadzait24 uses in his mod when tweaking,and these are the settings that theworse removed from his tweaking.
    I use the kadzait24 setting and theworse settings mixed for more smoke and particles etc.

    Dunno if anyone struggle with Sweetfx on Win 8.1, but running RadeonPro with admin rights made the deal for me. (along with the appropriate sweetfx ofc)

    Fantastic patch to Watch Dogs! I am so glad that TheWorse was able to re enable some of the graphics effects used during E3! It has fixed some stuttering issues, but there is still stuttering in my system. (Probably the 2560x1440 resolution). Keep up the great work!
