    looks great ! nothing to mention really... glad the way it is now

    it only sucks a bit that you use diffrent settings then me , but i guess that counts for alot of people... i feel like there should be an .xml for low-mid-high specs and then ofc the impossible spec xD guess the guy that does that will earn alot of rep from the noobs that are learning here ;) aaahhh we'll ... for now im good just had to edit the .xml file to ultra textures then change blur and dof off and put it on 4x anti in-game as i don't know where in the xml i can edit it and im afraid i might type something wrong a lil help with a screenshot would be awesome ofc :p ps: i just know i will replay this game when your 1.0 hits <:8~~ defalt would be so happy !

    Mystic,

    It's great that you provided your cameracontext.lib file, but unfortunately not everyone (including myself) knows how to unpack the fat/dat files and pack them back. I know you said it's for those who knows how to do that, but well, how many people would that be on this website? Three, maybe four? Those who knows how to do that could edit it for their liking, anyway. No love for newbies, huh? :D

    I'd really appreciate if someone kind enough could come up with a subtler DOF version, guys. Other than that, everything works fantastic for me.

    Same here. I like the 0.6 colors as it is almost identical to the E3 version. Only thing that I dislike is the DoF. Is it possible to make the 0.6 version with the DoF settings of 0.7 ?

    This looks so good! Thanks TheWorse for going through all the trouble and sharing the improvement with us :)
    Can someone please tell me how to place the files?
    I've got 3 Folders, one named "Closer Camera, Far Camera, Normal Camera" and that's it.
    With no instructions

    Hello,
    What is the difference between TheWorse's "Ultra" preset compared to a custom made preset set in game?

    Thank you.

    I think we are getting close :) This is without SweetFX, and the xml is just the Ultra preset created by the game.

    That night shot is almost the same as the E3 preview, all that's missing is some lens flares :)

    I'm pretty happy with how everything is right now. Keep up the good work.

    So would you be interested at all in working on a performance version that optimizes and removes effects instead of installing them?

    My only issue is slightly too much bloom, but as stated he's going to fix that in the next release :)

    Sometimes the game is too damn dark, I was doing a mission in a warehouse at night and I couldn't see anything. Is that due to the mod?

    Install directions are on page one/first post where you downloaded the mod from. I will explain.

    The two Patch files go in your data_win64 folder located in your watch_dogs folder

    For his graphic presets you open your Gamerprofile.xml, find the line that says quality="_runtime" and change it to quality="ultra".
    Your Gamerprofile.xml is located in my documents/my games/watch dogs/ open the folder that has a big string of numbers and letters similar to this 80912345-12fgh-43ghy-84ab-433ads40d3fg. This is where the gamerprofile.xml located that the game uses.

    I like the Closer camera as it has a normal camera angle. The other ones feel weird to me.

    Ignore the "patch_unpack" folder unless you want to take a stab at your own mods and repack it.

    you can use "Gibbed.Disrupt.Unpack" for unpach the patch, drag it to the unpack.exe that will create an folder, inside you will found library that you can the same unpack with "Gibbed.Disrupt.ConvertBinaryObject" for exemple cameracontext.lib', it will create an other folder with xml inside , change value, when finished drag the cameracontext_converted.xml on "Gibbed.Disrupt.ConvertBinaryObject" it will made a file name .fcb
    rename it .lib and replace the original with it
    in end drag the entire folder patch_unpack on the exe "Gibbed.Disrupt.Pack"

    and its done :p

    It just doesn't look at all like what his photos look like. The distances are blurred out more now. But no cool looking water or better shading. Everything looks the same, with blurry distances.
