    You can edit GamerProfile.xml

    Find and change from ShadowQuality="high" to ShadowQuality="pc".

    Also it seems slightly improved shadow resolution and fps as well.

    EDIT: 2 differents shadow quality

    ShadowQuality="high"

    Looks nice but it's unplayable with a HD7870.

    Very nice.

    And my rig can handle it.

    40-50 and on high spots 30-36. Not bad.

    I tried this and its really nice and i say what everybody else does, you should lower the dof or make it dynamic also i've noticed that the lights inside the metro are too bright at first but after 2-3 secs if i get on board the brightness disappears and the cars headlights are flickering sometimes and if i shoot to certain points the bullet impact is much bigger black hole but not always. If you manage to do the E3 gas station explosion too you will be a hero and this mod will be the best :D

    Is setting Shadows to Ultra but not High, breaking your mod?

    It not because he has a lot of stuff added. It's some of the settings inside the patch, not the actual graphics or wind, trees or anything like that. I reworked his mod to have the same performance as The Worse which runs super good for me. I spent hours and hours yesterday modifying kadz, getting it to perform good while keeping the weather, headlights and all that good stuff. Now that kadz has a new version out. I will most likely do the same thing to it and smooth it out for high-ultra settings.

    I love how it's always windy now. It adds immensely to the atmosphere.

    Spot-on modification on that one, Kad.

    Open your gamerprofile.xml with notepad and count nine lines down. You will see this.

    <GameProfile Sensitivity="0.9" MouseLookSensitivityX="50"

    Add TimeScale = "30" to the line so it looks like this
    <GameProfile TimeScale = "30" Sensitivity="0.9" MouseLookSensitivityX="50"

    Close/save file. Now make your gamerprofile.xml read only.

    HEY KADZ
    real GREAT JOB!! the mod is AWSOME!
    you are in the right path bro!

    my feedback about v5beta3 is ... WOW!

    almoust no suttering on all ultra in a gtx770 getting 25/35 fps in motion 40+standstill,
    i had very good results on high/ultra mix 40/50fps
    ...also got a few fps drops to single digits, when turn off DOF and Blur got better results and the fps drop was not so high...
    ..also detected a new bug with the cars, when you spin the tires you get some black stuff with the smoke, i tryed many configs and it was allways there when i was doing some donuts... hummm donuts!
    ...some reflexions on the buildings windows up close are a bit ugly for my taste, the reflexions on cars are great... i did drive a SUV just for that big window in the back and enjoy those nice reflexions in the car windows ...
    ...besides the ocasional flickering and some headlights flikering .. on the first test i did i can say for sure your mod is the best!
    Thank You
    Keep up the good work!


    BTW ... 1ST SETTING I DID PERSONALISE WAS TURN DOF OFF, after a few minuts XD

    OMG! This looks stunning! It has only one drawback, if you only have 2GB of Vram, be ready for stutter. After a few minutes of flawless gameplay (Everything on Ultra including textures and 2x TXAA) my Vram gets full and my PC can't handle it. Strange thing is, if I set shadows to Ultra instead of High, it runs better!? Can you shed some light into this Kadzait? Shadows on ultra (through the ingame menu), gives better performance with everything maxed out? Does it de-activate something? Or is my PC crazy? (i7 4770K + 16GB Ram + MSI Twin Frozr Geforce GTX 770 2GB Gaming Edition).

    I'm uploading a video to demonstrate all ultra 1080p: http://youtu.be/TZ8OZKRYC_k

    One extra info, I downgraded from version 1.3 of the game to 1.01! :D
    (Replaced Disrupt_b64.dll and Watch_Dogs.exe with the ones from the Retail copy of the game. Works wonders, just had to set uplay to offline afterwards)
