    I've been digging through facialposedefinition.lib and tried exchanging some values from old.Tanner.xml to malechar01.xml, theres 2 values that needs to be left untouched or you will get crash on strartup, so I kept those 2, while rest were fully swapped with values from old.Tanner, however, I'm not seeing any differences.

    Anyone got an idea what does this .lib do?

    I guess it's not enough then. Maybe even impossible in retail version.

    I suppose it should be? I mean official list of heroes is char01/male01 - aiden, char02/female02 - clara... etc? No female01 either in the lib.

    Guys, how you like my Medium DOF? Should I proceed and add it to all other cameras?

    yes, you are right.
    add them work, butsome added /edited shaders need to start a new ggame to get them work. in cause of an shader cache, wich is Not edit able in save games.

    In defaultrenderconfig.xml is a code how you should add the shaders
    (open the file with notepad ++, so you will see a descrption how the "code" must look, it is wrote in green)

    edit the shaders, and found the codes in engine/settings/shader
    (hope this helps a little bit)
    ps there you also can found the subsurface scattering called sss

    very nice job essenthi! though it is incomplete... if you play the mission rat's lair and get into a chase you will notice that there is more to the song than just that melody you played, actually that is only the beginning of the whole song :)
    Just wanted to inform you as this sounds very nice but should add this part to it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KFU8YSDLUg
    This is what is supposed to be the rest of the song you made.
    Hope that was helpful :)

    sorry but the reflections on the cars, at night, I repeat, at night, now appear after updating the patch ubisoft or after updating the nvidia driver?

    i have been thinking that maybe the reason we don't see the parallax occlusion mapping is because they scrapped the meshes that had the mapping in it and replaced it with some that does not include pom in it, just a theory but why else would we not be able to see it after all this? Maybe there is something buried deep in the game files that we have not looked before that could enable or maybe it was just scrapped all together, either way the game still looks amazing but it would be even more amazing if we could just get that back.
    Is it possible to do what Skyrim modders have done with the parallax occlusion mapping and make the meshes again? Or is the file type that Ubi uses alien to the tools that people use to make the mesh?
    I have seen someone turn the XBG into a file that could be used by blender but the name of the site i found it on escapes me... But what i remember is that he had to do some sort of scripting? I do not entirely remember but he was able to change the format of the Aiden model and make it editable in blender, the thing is when i downloaded it the first time, i noticed that i do not know how to use blender, lol
    Ugh, i will search for the site in which i found it on because that could be helpful to out endeavors in making the game look even more awesome than it already does! :banana:

    that is the link to the forum i was talking about in my last post,
    Here is the link to the files for the models in which can be used in blender 249 http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11602

    And then here is a site that was shown on the thread, i have not looked at it but you guys may be interested so i am going to put it in there :) http://www.zmodeler3.com/
    Hopefully people know how to script in blender and actually model in blender too ! :D

    I talked with a guy who had knowledge about XBG, he said that he has no plans to release this kit, since he lost interest in the game.

    Such a shame.
