    Looks alright. A bit too yellow for my personal taste, but I'll give it a run.

    Would love if Reshade would work again. :/ I bet it's because of the stupid online part.

    Hi, I have a question;

    if I only want to modify a config file into the engine\settings folder. Do I need to unpack every file of patch.fat or patch2.fat files, modify the file, and pack every file again as one of those files? or can I create a new zpatch or patch3 with only that modified file?

    Because I can't found the way to get the game to use the modified file.

    make a new folder call it eg: patch3
    Put all files that you want there
    then in CMD write "WD2Pack.exe patch3 patch3.fat"

    I see, but that's what I did and doesn't work. :(

    My first edit was only with testing purposes, I changed every texture quality level with lowest preset values in defaultrendersettings.xml, but no effect. I put the file into engine\settings folder and packed a zpatch.fat

    That's the case. I verified game files with uplay before starting the process. When I get home I will share file size of the exe and the fat file if you want to help me. Thank you very much.

    Forget it. My bad.

    It works. But I think there is some kind of cache of the config in the profile checkpoint data. If I change the graphics options and reload the checkpoint I can see my changes even when I ended with the same config as started. Changing options maybe forces a reload of the settings inside the defaultrendersettings file. \o/

    Thank you anyway.

    The latest patch disabled all modding possibilities. EasyAntiCheat does detect them now.
