    Thanks man that worked! :banana:
    One more question though. I'm using kadzait24 5.0, and since he's done with modding for the time being, the gunshot decals will remain broken for a while :bang: Do you know how to revert to the vanilla decals?? Also, in Far Cry 3 the object blinking could be "disabled" by simply making the color transparent. Maybe that would work for Watch Dogs too?

    ::Edit:: Removing "materialimpact" from the generated folder reverted decals to vanilla. :banana:

    I'm looking for this info too! I wanted to replace some of the sound files but have no idea how. I can convert all the sbao files to wav or ogg files and pick out which ones I want to change, but once that's done I still don't know how to get my own music/sounds into sbao files to replace them.

    Any game modding veterans out there know?

    So I'm having some bad luck with this... I was able to find the specific files for some of the songs I want to replace in the sound track, but now I'm not able to create .sbao files out of my mp3s

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Nice. I'm interested in how you managed to remove traffic and people.

    I've been poking on the binhex values on civiliandensity to no avail :(. I gave up after that lol.

    Never got around to playing with the .xml files in peoplespawninfo.lib & vehiclespawninfo.lib. I'm guessing thats how you figured out how to remove people completely?

    Would greatly appreciated if you upload ur custom patch :)
