    Man I can´t wait for your tweaked camera lib, I like the dof but it´s hard to walk around with it. I´d do my own but I have no idea how you tweaked those xml :eek:

    I did it myself in Cheat Engine. If you've never used a cheat engine table before, this won't be very useful. I'll write up a guide on it later.

    You can also change the time of day with that. Go from night to day with just a few key presses :p

    A few shots I took with that:

    Should note that I haven't used SweetFX at all for this game.

    Jesus Christ jim2point0, the 1st image looks like an image from the game Alan Wake.
    And how did you managed to make the water looks so real on the 3rd image?

    @TheWorse

    Could you please include a fix for the poor fps during rainy weather?
    Thank you.

    I didn't do anything. That's just rain splashes combined with the right time of day so the lighting hits it just right :p

    Downsampling. Playable if you're packing a few titan blacks maybe :p

    lol, nice one.

    Hmm I highly doubt that since it runs appallingly on those cards, I saw few people talking about the massive stutter when the sli is enabled ....

    took some shots using jim's table , the DOF is annoying and act on it's own lots of times it's like a battle to get it working the way you want it not to mention the shadows at night being funny sometimes

    i hope DOF can be adjusted to the player's wish in future mods , good job theworse

    The mod is great, awesome work TheWorse, BUT, is there a way to restore the original color and contrast? I don't like the desaturated browny look > .<

    Exelent screenshots as always!

    Important Update: Headlight Shadows completely fixed (not flickering anymore!, radius, etc)

    Still, stuttering should be improved, but keep in mind now shadows are rendered in real time at night, 2 Headlights shadowmaps per car. Watch dogs seems to be really stable so far though.

    Also I was really exited to see iCEnhancer talking about the modification!

    Oh and I'll change the colorgrading. But tell me how you want it to look like Saturation, contrast etc.

    You deserve, dude!!

    Personally i like to calibrate this things according to my monitor, so if you can leave as neutral as possible would be great.

    To achieve visual fidelity, what should the brightness in-game set at?

    I use SLI. I do not have massive stutter when I play at native res (2560x1440).

    Well that's fantastic news! I look forward to your next release. Can you turn the rain settings back to default, though? :p
