    Hey Thokkiano

    Thank you for the response.

    Ok so about the Sweetfx presets. do I need to enter the presets manually or how do I replace my old presets with Aln wakes?

    Thanks again.

    how did you combine them, the file names from Ubi matches files names from TheWorse, so only one of them runs at a time?!

    Edit: unless if you unpacked, merged and then packed again.

    I did the same to the patch files. I still have the xml without the HUD.


    open your .xml file and change all "0" in teh following values to "1"

    UseCompassMiniMap="0"
    UseRoadSignHilight="0"
    UseSubtitles="0"
    UseReticle="0"
    UseWaypoint="0"
    UseHintsAndTutorial="0"
    UsePdaNotification="0"
    UseMinimap="0"
    UseDynamicMission="0"
    UseItemAndRewards="0"
    UseMissionUpdate="0"
    UseFelony="0"
    UseEquipmentAndTools="0"

    Then save.
    Credit to neoglow for the list :p

    wow, I looks really nice, even medium settings. ( I don use "ultra" )
    But I have a question, bloom is often to intense, especially at day. And I can't see what is other room (while lookin thr. open door etc.)
    Is there a way to set it to longer distance or something like that ?
    sorry for my english :uhoh:

    Did you integrate the mod with the patch by yourself?

    @Everyone!


    Before you install the Patch from Steam/Uplay, Remove the Mod and your XML file. Install the update, launch the game!

    A month of waiting for 19mb patch that improves performance for 3 out of 100 people, NICE!

    Maybe it's just a placebo? They winrar'd alot of pr0n pictures and changed the extensions?

    Wow, someone is very rude. :(

    My game is 100% smoother than before the update, Ive just done some more playing and performace seems to be worse at night than in the day so yes some stuttering returned during night but for me it seems to be Shadow Quality that hogs the GPU so turning this to High instead of Ultra improved it a lot.

    Please dont be so rude, I am only trying to help and share with the forum.

    Let me tell you my feedback : i found this mod absolutely beautiful. But i have uninstall it because the DoF is definitely to short for me and i fell not confortable to play.

    I hope the next update will increase the dof

    I think the patch balanced everything out, 3 people from Guru3D get less stuttering and better FPS but...

    It seems that this patch INTRODUCED STUTTERING for people who never had any performance issues.

    LOL.

    Did they hire monkeys to code?

    Be sure to set everything in high as my custom settings are in high preset, other people reported gains in performance, maybe you should try only the ubisoft patch first...
