    Hello,

    How I can achieve "nice shining body" on cars? This one from Unreal screenshots few pages earlier for example?
    I had high and ultra settings but cars in game never looked like that :/

    Performance problems with some users seems to be related with memory directly. It's not my fault again, but ubisoft. I'm able to play smooth the game with a single gtx 680 2gb as I said with everything ultra. FIND ANY STUTTER FIX FROM THE INTERNET AND TRY AGAIN. I'll make version 0.8 to have performance improvements, but still don't expect ME to fix what I can't.

    to uninstall the mod simply remove patch.dat and patch.fat from your data_win64 game forlder.

    I'm adding more ssao specially for areas where is not that noticiable.

    Also E3 explosions is not possible, at least not yet. The game seems to be using the default gas station explosions from e3, but ubisoft maybe tuned it down for release.

    Kadzait24 Thread is only closed because He is banned for two weeks. When He comes back, he will re-Open the thread. So his mod is NOT Dead !

    So the patch.dat itself can be opened via the Windows Editor or any text editor as it stands. Pretty trivial.

    If you could just point us in the right direction that would be awesome. :) Please? I'd just like the DoF off. ^^

    Thanks MalDo for such a quick response.
    Two more questions :

    1. Vsync in-game on or off ? Same question for nvidia panel.
    2. How many GPU buffered frames to use best ?

    Question to my personal Guru TheWorse :)
    Could you tell me your graphic settings ? We have almost the same rig :)

    The Closer Camera folder contains another folder called "Patch Unpack" which contains a bunch of folders. What are they for and why is it not in the Normal and Far folders?

    First of all, huge thank you for going throught the trouble of making this mod and investing so much time and energy into it. Alos, thank you for making it available for everyone else.
    I just had to crate an account to thank you!

    Now you said that you always welcome comments so here is mine:

    The DoF is uneven when driving. This is using 0.7 with the fixed normal camera. Everything is set to Ultra with Temporal SMAA in 1440p.

    Large images below!

    [​IMG]

    This is what the DoF looks like when driving and looking forward. Like I said this is the normal camera. Basically there is no DoF.



    [​IMG]

    Now if you turn the free camera to the rear,there is still no DoF.



    [​IMG]

    When you use the Button (Gamepad "A") to get to the rear view, all of the sudden you have DoF.



    [​IMG]

    This is what the normal camera DoF looks like when you aren't in a car/on a bike. Notice how it is quite a bit more intense.



    [​IMG]

    And finally a picture of the city again when standing next to the car.
    It seems that your mod is not fully applied to the driving cameras.

    Also, and I know this sounds counter intuitive, it seems I am getting better fps when I am using your mod. I will do some more extensive testing on that later today and get back to you with the results. I will also take some more screenshots without the mod, especially to compare the rear view cameras.

    Best combo is set nvidia profile for watch dogs with vsync ON and Vsync Adaptative. Ingame menu, set vsync OFF and gpu buffered frames = 2

    Guys what is the "patch_unpack" folder in "Closer Camera" for? And why is it not in Normal and Far folders?

    The instructions say just copy the contents of One folder to the watch dogs directory. Is that "patch_unpack" folder only for Closer Camera?

    Thanks
