    DeadIsland Helper Tool
    http://www.theplaywrite.com/tools-a...nd-apply-tweaks-without-having-to-edit-files/




    Afaik (havent tried it myself yet, will do this evening) it unzips the game files and changes some gfx settings outside of the game like

    - no bloom
    - no motion blur
    - no dust clouds
    - fixes keypress stutterings when turning with mouse

    etc etc - to make the game look better and more smoothly



    Should be REALLY good for your gameplay




    [edit] wanna coop sometime? I'm at level 11 now i think

    and that why i dont bother with that garbage. i like to make up my own mind. if we started letting reviews dictate our gaming lives, we would all be in a world of sh!t.

    Blur in action is annoying.

    The city part is a bit creepy.

    I'll report back in 4 hours. :)



    Btw: i had the same problem as many others, had UK PEGI version with EASTERN EUROPE keys. It wasnt possible to unlock the game from Germany or UK, luckily one my UK friends has a Rumanian GF. :D

    After i logged back on i saw Dead Island in my library, but as 'not installed'. After that i was able to install from disk, no problem. :)

    Yes, Bloom is off, crosshair is off, stamina bar is off, and I disabled desaturate, and increased shadow size. (FOV is also around 90)

    when you open it, it sits on the taskbar. basicly right click on the item to set all the options.

    i enabled some options myself to try it, resulting in the game not starting up anymore. using my own files now.

    Use nvidia inspector and add DeadIslandGame.exe to the existent Dead Island 2 profile.

    Wow, just tested the 1.6 Version of the Helper tool, and it works. No bloom, dust, motion blur, no INGAME MIC (!!!!!), no keyboard stuttering

    NO REALLY DUH? Seriously one more that tells me that and I'm going nuts.

    http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=209893

    Here's the thread. It directly went into Nvidia hands. The problem is beyond changing exe trust me.

    Ok, that worked for me.
    One Gtx470 is enough for running the game anyway.

    Helper Tool really helped :)

    FOV fix was most needed along with bloom removal. Now I need to find a shotgun... 5 hours into the game and the only firearm I've come across is a revolver and it takes three headshots to kill a normal zombie.
