    Btw this is my absolute favorite weather state i find it much better then many of the things we even saw in many of the E3 Demos :)

    So much atmosphere you hardly find in any Game :)

    And the combination and tuning of the whole is near perfect :)

    Sorry, but you have to delete the old xml file and let it create a new one and then modify it ultra?

    Before you put patch.dat/.fat in the win64 folder you start the game and select Ultra or High. Close the game and put the patch files in the win64 and start the game again. Everything should work.

    Regarding the High/Ultra preset requirement, I'm using "Custom" and it works too but the difference is that I've only changed AA and GPU Max Buffer (which makes it Custom mode).

    TheWorse, your message box is full. So many fans or spam from kad XD

    By the way, I will post the link for the stuttering test patch.

    A few users say they have stuttering problems even with TheWorse modifications. So I made a quick STUTTERING TEST PATCH that uses the modifications from TheWorse too

    https://mega.co.nz/#!aU8HECxA!IiiDbX11J2QM8RR6zFyU8bXKGjvrU6IBb049dy_QU-g


    IMPORTANT - READ FIRST!
    --------------------------------

    -This is not a patch to play the game, there is a lot of texture aliasing
    -This is a stuttering test for people that have stuttering using ultra textures
    -It contains a compilation of Ultra textures without mipmaps used as High textures + TheWorse mod 0.7b


    How to test:

    1. Unrar the file and copy patch.dat and patch.fat into your watch dogs "data_win64" folder (make a backup if you already have a modded patch file)
    2. Multigpu users, disable multigpu in your drivers (remember, this is only a test). Recommended to use Adaptative Vsync too.
    3. Start the game
    4. In the game options menu, select your native resolution, vsync off, max rendered frames = 2
    5. Select HIGH TEXTURES!!!! (NOT ULTRA, you will see ultra textures using High texture option)
    6. Players with 2 GB of VRAM, set high or medium shadows and reflections.
    7. Resume game. You will see a lot of texture aliasing but the stuttering should be reduced.


    Share the results. If that patch improves the stuttering for a few users, I will create textures with mipmaps for those that have more texture aliasing.

    Am I the only one wondering if you will be able to add the gas station explosion from E3? Really would make this game better.

    I don't have the graphical power to run the game on the ultra preset, but high works just fine. But is is possible to change the Depth of Field in this preset? I did a little search in the settings, but couldnt find anything that could change that. My other question is if it is possible to change the anti-aliasing. the preset I use now does not seem to have any AA at all, and I would like to have at least some :p. Does anyone know how to change these things?
    Thanks TheWorse, for giving us the watchdogs we deserve! :)

    He already said, that he is working on it :), hopefully it looks possible!

    Btw all those that want the DOF/Motion Blur off

    Make your gamerprofile.xml "read only"

    Then when you load the game, in options, just "turn off" DOF and Motion Blur the viola, fixed, everything else works as normal :).

    You'll need to do it each time you load the game up, but so what? Easy fix for now :).

    Where I can change textures quality ? In game options or in XML file ?
    Can I change refresh rate in game ? Vsync on or off in-game and in nvidia panel ?

    Game -> Options -> Display

    NOTE: Texture quality option must be changed in the main menu, before playing the game.

    Everything looks so perfect! I just wonder if it's possible to bring back focus effect known from E3 trailer. Any trace of such files in E3 package that you discovered, TheWorse?
