    Default Re: Better Texture & Performance up to 50 %

    How does this mod is boosting the game up to 50%? What are the changes ?

  3. #3

    Icon3 Re: Better Texture & Performance up to 50 %

    How the boosting work:

    ----> Your Graphics Card gets more free space of his limited VRAM (very faster than RAM)
    ----> Compress texture that are uncompressed!
    ----> Delete Texture that are loaded in your Graphics Card what have any function!

    I explored the texture and find some uncompressed texture with a very big size (up to max. 46MB) without Alpha Channel! That texture that I disable and compress are texture that colored your units! I use this mod a long time!
    I have never seen color mask that are uncompressed just here! There is no problem to compress them without change image quality because gloss files have the same function like the color mask!

    I compress the color_mask with the same Mip Maps for same quality!

    Try it and see yourself how your Performance rise up and look if you see a difference

    Default Re: Better Texture & Performance up to 50 %

    I tried your mod on a battle with 8000 soldiers, and I must admit that the performances are strikingly boosted. The animations are still jerky on huge melee (and that's weird; because I have a good computer, but I think that's the same for everyone) but it works good. Well done, you deserve +Rep

    No, it worked fine. I disabled the depth of field, and my animations bug disappeared.

    I assume you can try it without any danger.

    Yup, works fine. Don't expect a huge difference but it's nice.

    Pretty much. I saw slightly improved performance when troops were standing/marching, but (understandably) it slowed down during the big melee, and I couldn't perceive any improvements even if they were there. I'll use it .

    !!!Thanks for a fast Reply!!!

    Try this to enhance more Performance and boost animations on close range!

    I add my unit_stats_land tweak to show how big my unit size are! For better animations on close range!

    Works good all over 120 unit size slow down very much the animations on close rage!

    I can play the game on a Intel Atom Dualcore 330 with Geforce 9400 (ION) 512 MB (VRAM) with 4 GB RAM at 1280x720 all Settings on ULTRA!!! Its my HTPC!

    My Performace pack is around 67 MB big with compressed texture vs 268 MB uncompressed texture! A very big difference!

    Superghostboy, man. Don't talk like that. You... you're getting me really, really excited. Like, you're raising my hopes up. My hopes are a balloon, slowly drifting into the sky. I don't want it to pop. I don't want the armies of Reality to fire an RPG into my balloon and send it spiraling down as a flaming ball of despair. I just downloaded your second tweak, and I'm about to test it. I'll edit this post and let you know what I experience. I want my balloon to reach Saturn. SATURN, MAN. Whatever happens, you have my thanks for taking on this innovative project.

    Edit: Whoops, forgot to edit lol. Well I do notice an improvement, but not anything major, so I'm just going to tweak unit sizes until I find a better balance between epicness and performance. I'll definitely keep the mod, thanks for your hard work. My balloon is deflated, but still flying high.

    This sounds too good to be true. Can you at least post some videos of this mod proving the it actually increases fps? I mean, how is it possible to have the good image quality and better fps?

    Post no. 10: unit_stats_land tweak.rar (7.7 KB, 9 views) unit_dust_parameters.rar (785 Bytes, 7 views)Does the dust parameter mod remove dust from arrow impacts or units creating dust whilst walking ? I `d love to try this out , so what do I need ? Only the mod from post no. 1? Thank you !

    Icon4 Re: Better Texture & Performance up to 50 %

    Sorry, but you dont understand me what I wanted to tell you!

    You don't need to download

    unit_stats_land tweak.rar (7.7 KB, 9 views)
    unit_dust_parameters.rar (785 Bytes, 7 views)[


    This are only my settings how I play and how big my unit size are!

    Sure the animation on close range gets better with a little smaller army because the Game - Engine handle it better and the AI controls better his army!

    Someone ask me about the unit_dust_parameters.rar?

    Unit_dust_parameters controls:

    infantry_walking
    infantry_running
    infantry_charging
    infantry_melee

    cavalry_walking
    cavalry_running
    cavalry_charging
    cavalry_melee

    elephants_walking
    elephants_running
    elephants_charging
    elephants_melee

    artillery_walking
    artillery_running
    artillery_melee

    Like in Napoleon Total War you see dust from the units but in Shogun 2 not! Disable in unit_dust_parameters and landbattle.xml gets more FPS, too!


    Whatever unit size you used you get a FPS boost with my Performance-MOD (first post) with the same image quality!

    Default Re: Better Texture & Performance up to 50 %

    do i need to put both, mod performance boost and texture update?

  18. #18

    Icon4 Re: Better Texture & Performance up to 50 %

    Yes, if you want?

    textur update----> for better Texture (Smoke,Dust,Wake,Grenade,Cannon fire)
    performance pack ----> for boosting Performance

    There is no problem to use both mods!
    If you use both mods you get better texture (more image quality) and a performance boost!

    Is the mod compatible with Alternative Clan Colours mod by Demokritos? I use it and like it very much so I wouldn't like to remove it.
