Default Re: MaLDoHD's High resolution Texture Pack For Crysis2

Ok I got It working, I must say it looks awesome, I would like to see everyone's load out settings and what you think looks the best. Also all ingame setting are overridden by this mod correct ? do I even need to mess with them ?

Here's mine so far. I set the global preset to ultra, then dialed a few things back which gave about a 20% performance gain.

I didn't like the highest AA setting, which has a sharpen filter and to me it looks way oversharpened, shimmers pretty bad. So I set that back one notch. I also toned down the shadow blur to 1.5 based on the recommendation of the utility author to gain some performance, and dialed dof back to intense.

For the check boxes I disabled water tesselation, as the water looks great even without, set object tesselation to reduced(haven't noticed a difference), and disabled ssdo, as ssao should be fine. Realtime and particle shadows aren't needed and hardly noticable, so I killed those.

This gives me a nice 38fps+, and with the excellent motion blur crysis has the game is really quite smooth above that range.

Nice, I just moved the slider to ultra and gave it a shot, I was surprised how well it ran to the default game. I'm gonna mess with the settings and dial it in and report back. It looks like a real PC game now

Well this is mine, like I said I just moved the slider to ultra not thinking it would run good at all, but it runs way better with this mod...even at 30 fps.

I think I will leave it the way it is for now, I don't really see any thing dislike.

For those who have a two card set up set your ingame graphics to ultra and then back to extreme and watch your frame rate go up, mine shot up 20 fps plus...why and how IDK

Make sure to try the alt-enter tweak, which fixes the performance drop from using vsync in DX11. Just alt-enter twice to exit and re-enter full screen. I'm really glad to have vsync back.
