    @TheWorse
    That would be great if u could release some testing version from time to time. Most of us are impatient enough to **** our pants on one. Even if u got 2 sets of values and can't decide which one should be set up, u can always post 2 of them and let us solve it :)
    And nvm about that kadzait bull****, guy is out and u r the one who keeps working on the tweak, successfully anyways. No difference who was 1st, the one who releases final version which doesn't need any more tweaks gonna be the man. Keep up the good work.

    Ubisoft annouced (but didn't release yet) the first official patch:

    Code:
    - Automatically reconstructed corrupted save files which prevented loading to go further than 90%. Some collectibles may remain unrecoverable.
    - Fixed the issue preventing players from using hacks in game.
    
    GAMEPLAY FIXES
    - Fixed several mission-breaking bugs.
    - Fixed minor mission and item-related issues.
    - Fixed the issue that caused the empty weapon-wheel.
    
    MULTIPLAYER FIXES
    - Fixed several minor respawn issues.
    - Fixed some connection and session joining issues.
    
    PC SPECIFIC FIXES
    - Fixed graphical glitches on Low & Medium settings.
    - Fixed some crashes on SLI configurations.
    - Implemented several performance improvements.
    - Implemented a few control improvements.
    - Fixed issues causing infinite messaging and timing-out when trying to access the Online Shop from the Extras Menu while Uplay is set to Offline mode.
    - Fixed issues connecting to a Multiplayer game.
    - Implemented several mouse modifications.
    - Fixed "Drinking Game" control issue where wrong information was displayed when played with a gamepad.
    - Fixed "Chess Game" control issue.
    - Fixed bug where the invasion setting was never saved.
    - Fixed graphical issues during cut scenes and cinematics.
    - Fixed several graphical and texture bugs.
    - Removed Vista OS check to prevent false positives.
    - Added game version in main menu
    will it break this mod?

    Whenever I edit the patch files, the game crashes instantly when I try to launch it, I've tried changing just the rain density and I get these results. I've tried using Notepad and Notepad++, any suggestions on how to edit the file properly?

    No man, it's very unlikely. Even if they do so, we gonna repack main game archive which is not a big difference.

    Not that this Users work was for the birds. Could some Mod insert this into the opening post? Or could "The Worse" insert this into his first post? Would be a shame, if the effort of this user was just a waste of time. Even to this moment people do ask the same questions over and over again!

    Vanilla has dense rain storms.
    Vanilla has e3 explosions.

    I will upload a vid in a few minutes with "kadz's blowing e3 explosions" just to make you understand "it's vanilla" =D

    While playing yesterday, textures went from ultra to medium... didn't know why ?

    By the way, Precision X graphs shows memory usage:
    Between 4 Gb and 4,4 Gb
    (all ultra/activated; 1080@60Hz; Vsync on; 4xTXAA or 8xMSAA)

    I haven't yet touched the fog files since last time. I need to experiment until I get the best result at night. But I'll get there. Still anamorphic lensflares needs to be done. For this I'm going to make a custom lensflare through photoshop. And also the lighting and colorgrading needs work. And don't misunderstand what colorgrading means for this game. It's just used to make the lighting look better for all the day and night. I'm going to modify some values of the roads too so you guys can see when rains better road reflections.

    Edit: Wow I didn't see that post from neoglow before, I'll add it to the first page and post credits for his dedication!!

    Sounds great. Btw, is it possible to tweak shadows to make them a bit darker without tweaking contrast and gamma?

    That E3 look does not need SweetFX, I think those shots are a bit too contrasty. See my pics I posted earlier which just uses your mod and nothing else. I much prefer these:
    PS some anamorphic lens flares would be the cherry on the icing :)

    Use Notepad++ to edit these files.
