    Holy ****, why do you people need to come here and **** this thread up?

    I also use the xml, and its burning my PC down. You cannot ignore that explosions look better, that there are more particles (something I really appreciate) and stuff.

    I mean, if there were no effect at all, why should the game run with much fewer fps then? Just because? That's stupid.

    @OP, can I recognise somehow if I messed my game up? I mean, I used your first xml, then the second one. Is it now "broken"? I don't want to start over again :D

    Btw, it may be possible to discover names of XML file`s settings (names of nodes and attributes, named values) right in game`s binaries (exe-files, dll-files). Just open binary file in any hex-editor program and either browse entire body for a strings, or search for already known names and then look near for unknown ones.

    I had to create an account just to answer this.

    This mod is awesome, and really, you must be completely blind not to see any change.

    edit : and I agree, best way to see it is to wait for hevy rain and look at the ground. Those splashes man, they are so neat now. And the road looks sharp, the puddle doesn't look blurry anymore...

    I wanted to testify here because when I first tried it, there was no change at all, so I was like" WTF is this BS ?"

    But there is a very important thing to do so it can work : make your GamerProfile XML file to be READ ONLY

    Otherwise, it seems that the game just load average default settings, and I think that is why we see so many "comparison screenshots" with not HBAO.

    Anyway, tried the XML V2 only, looking great but it's unplayble for me right now (around 12 FPS with some severe stuttering around 4-5 fps), even when switching to temporalsmaa (performance were even lower before actually).

    So please keep up the good work, stop focusing on angry ppl that can read simple explanations, and post V3 please !

    Kudos

    In my case, FPS are the same with the .XML modified (or maybe 3-5FPS less), only a bit lags sometimes but it's fully playable.

    Maybe the concept of my request is escaping you. Maybe it's a language barrier but I am saying that there is a difference between your XML and ultra prebake. Reread my request I am at work and can't run the test myself.

    Again I will say this from all the screens I'v seen you post the most notable difference is the gamma and contrast. Which most of us had doen since day one with this game.

    I don't feel the burden of proof is on me your the one making the claims that you are vastly improving the game then posting videos as "proof" but when someone else post a YT video you discredit it saying it is compressed.

    Because He increased res values too much, and yes, that is stupid.

    Kadzait instead of posting the same lame excuses for over 20 pages do honest video comparision Yourself if You are so paranoid.

    No its not about resolution its all about lodscales what i post again to everyone know.

    if anyone has huge FPS drop with kadzaits xml put back ULTRA settings values for LOD.

    DetailDistanceScaleModifier="0.8" >> 1.0 (ultra)
    LodScale="0.7" >> 0.8 (ultra)
    KillLodScale="0.7" >> 0.8 (ultra)
    BuildingKillLodScale="0.8" >> same
    ClustersLodScale="0.8" >> 1.0 (ultra)
    RealTreesLodScale="0.9" >> 1.0 (ultra)

    His values are more like add image quality but less for cost huge FPS and its LOD in distance sou you even really notice ..

    Kadzait - I think the main problem people are having with you is the lack of consistency in your information, and your comments.

    Your first post on here is making substantial claims that just aren't showing.

    You say that now we have to start a new game because the save game/ engine breaks your code.

    You say direct comparisons between normal ultra and your file can't be done, so you won't do it, but it can be done, and people have done it and showed on here.

    You say there's no point looking at footage on a youtube video, then you post your own footage on a youtube video and ask others to post a comparison video.

    I could go on....

    I said i wont do a comparision shots or video since its lame and not possible when ToD changes a lot here in this game.

    When i have the console i will do that no problem.

    And i said you to make me a video like the last one, same everything going on and you deny. Why you deny? Its so simple, E3 location, raining and that's all.

    Its the better way, but you deny. I wont reply to you anymore as i wont for the rest of the users that doesn't wants to let people read the thread.

    Also I have created an account just to follow and respond, you're really doing a great job.
    I hope you continue to work on it, and know that you have my support for anything!
    Forget who say the contrary, there is much ignorance in the world (unfortunately) probably do not even know how to use your XML! Ho do all they can to discredit you! Know that you are finished on the front page of major newspapers of videogames here in Italy! So you're not crazy! You are appreciated for your work, believe me! I wish you a good job!

    Sorry for my English, I used Google translate!

    Classic. I'm actually trying to provide constructive criticism, and you're just throwing your toys out of the pram.

    What would be the point in me making a video, if you think there is no point in comparing any videos or any screenshots?

    You're talking in circles and completely contradicting yourself my friend.

    Tried that but it's not changing at all for me. 12FPS all the way. Well, even OCed, my 670GTX isn't enough anymore ?

    Because you can do it by just not using any XML and with a new savegame and if the game is exactly the same as that video, you will prove it doesn't do anything. And has nothing to do with only graphics, there is more stuff going on that you wont see.

    So its not for just a "comparision" that honestly at this point is not needed at all. Thousands of people knows it does change.

    Only a few of you are still arguing, that makes it lame.

    Like i said, keep arguing if that's what you love to do. Thousands of people are thinking the opposite.

    I will upload 3.0 late in the day.
