Thanks, MarteenDee, tried your settings and I must say the game runs much smoother than before.

Can't really say I notice any difference visually, but then again, I'm just at Saudi Arabia.

Kudos! :sorcerer:

 

I'm happy tweaks are working for you.

 

Definitely, proper caching is doing its job. If you've used all settings visual difference isn't obvious but there is some. Especially in the way how shadows are cast and that they're less blocky and way smoother. Also slightly better textures in the distance.

 

It seems impossible to edit previous posts, so I'll make another list of changes with short explanation later.

I've modified my APEngine following your guidelines and it most of the stuttering issues.

I've almost not touched the shadows part, yet.

I'll have a look at the other settings and see what I can understand, then test.

In APGame.ini, it's pretty clear the following section can be modded to change the threshold for perk reception :

Of course, there are some spoilers.

But clearly, the variables are defined elsewhere - if they could be found we could make totally new perks, or edit existing perks to totally new things.

MarteenDee, can any of the values you listed be higher or are those settings as high as it will go without crashing? For instance, is it possible to raise the minshadowresolution to 128 or 256 to improve shadows or does it only cull shadows below the value you set?

 

Edit: You can also edit the max decals and decal lifetime in APGame. I haven't tested it yet if it actually increases them.

True. Still, it's nice that some values used by game are exposed in ini files, so some tweaking can be done.

 

Also note that in perk list in ini file, only perks that have some value associated with them are listed there, not all possible perks.

I'm thinking the same. These might be just settings for something tied with how much whatever is needed to get that perk or how much bonus you get when perk is acquired. I bet those values change when you choose game difficulty or between Rookie/Veteran type of game.

In other words, maybe it's possible to alter them after you choose difficulty to make the game either more difficult or easier in some areas.

Whole "rule" though which "writes" those values in ini file is buried somewhere in the scripts for sure. Would be cool to compare those values with different difficulties or character choices.

With MaxShadowResolution it's definitely possible - but on the other hand I haven't seen a system which would easily digest shadows with resolution bigger than 4096. As I said - I'm tweaking values to get the best visuals possible without putting strain on my system, hence the values.

 

Don't make MinShadowResolution bigger than 32 as it will cause massive glitches.

 

It's simple: shadows needs to be scaled not only within a distance but also, for example, on face - if you stop the game from using lower resolution shadows (MinShadowResolution > 32) low resolution shadows won't scale to certain level and won't be rendered.

anyone knows how to get modified stuff ingame (textures/models and stuff?) - or is it not possible?

is there some sort of override folder or do we have to repackage stuff? hope someone knows...

 

only ini tweaking = o:)

Instead of -_- and :) and o:) you can search the web for any Unreal 3 tools and try to bring us something :w00t:

 

 

I want to modify (speed) the very fast transition "Cover - Aiming" Any ideas???

 

You might want to check some values in APGame.ini, right next to all movement settings. I wasn't fiddling with those yet so you may find something interesting and share it with us...

Those are the requirements to unlock the perk changing the number after the = allows you to mod it. Works quite well but doesn't affect the values of the perks themselves maybe after some looking around, someone will find them.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

well not the answer i had hoped for... you now its hard to start modding from 0% so i thought maybe someone already got the solution or something..

anyway retexturing is possible the easy way by using texmod.. it works!

Ultimate APEngine.ini modification for super smooth gameplay:

 

[MemoryPools]

FLightPrimitiveInteractionInitialBlockSize=512

FModShadowPrimitiveInteractionInitialBlockSize=512

 

Change 512 in both instances with the value appropriate for your RAM. I have 4GB and changed values to 2048.

 

These two measure how much memory Alpha Protocol can use on your system. It doesn't removes completely stutter when AI spawns and doesn't help with Clearinghouse though. But all gameplay is a lot smoother (if you removed FPS cap beforehand, of course).

MaxStaleCacheSize=512

MaxOverallCacheSize=1024

 

I was able to up these to 1024,2048. When I tried 2048,4096 it wouldn't load. I have the poolsize up to 4096 so far without crashing.

 

It appears levelling up can be modded as well as unlocking special skills. Only up to level 20 is possible.

Both. I'm getting stable 120+ fps with this tweak and loading times seems to be faster.

With 16xAF and 8x edge detect AA it does matter.

Game simply feels smoother as it may use up to 2048Mb of RAM instead of 512Mb. Nearly no HD activity (except when loading levels and that damn weapon shop). I bet there's a way to redirect which packets and scripts are fully loaded into memory. Unless it's filthy coding - and that's the issue only Obsidian guys are able to fix...

 

 

Here's my APEngine.ini if you want to compare any values (use WinMerge or something similar):

Tried the settings you posted earlier and i do feel the game going a lot smoother. With about the same settings (i put 2048 as my ram since i have 3.25 and i didn't know how much that amounted :p) it doesn't drop from 60 while i was getting 30-45 before. The texture popping is still pretty noticeable and i've noticed that the lockpicking minigame now moves a lot faster, which was kind of hard to get used to but now it's a definite improvement since with some practice it makes lockpicking somewhat easier/riskier.

I have a question for the experts

 

Which damage table goes with which weapon. How does one find this out?

Which accuracy table is attached to which weapon?

 

DefaultWeapons.ini

 

I am so sick of the poor accuracy of pistols even at close range...

 

Point at a wall - 3-5 feet away

 

unload a full clip into it, now watch the innacurate bullet spread... its bs total bs

 

How can you achieve a full stealth if the weapons are so inaccurate

 

I wasted 30 minutes on a stealth mission only to have the 12th guy open fire on my, because it took 5 friggin shots which I have all of my weapons on 1 shot 1 kill. 5 shots at very close range. What a way to make me furious, that sob never should have been allowed to open fire... 30 minutes wasted!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This sounded the alarm and might I add really ticked me off.

 

I wish there was a way to make notepad ++ replace all accuracy data at once

 

Instead I have to change each value individually.

 

BTW I started a new campaign as recruit and I am only using AR HK21 and Hamilton 45 all the way thru

I expect these two weapons to be standard issue recruit gear. I am carry out my missions with this load combined with combat armor and interceptor armor.

 

Example:

Accuracytable[15] (SpreadMinFiringDegrees=4.1,SpreadMaxFiringDegrees=12,SpreadReturnRate=10.2,Visu

alSpreadMin=12,VisualSpreadMax=500)

 

Changing to

SpreadMinFiringDegrees=0,SpreadMaxFiringDegrees=0,SpreadReturnRate=4,VisualSprea

dMin=0,VisualSpreadMax=0

 

I am so sick of bad inaccurate weapons even at close range

 

I tried replace

SpreadMinFiringDegrees=4.1

 

using the wildcard function of

SpreadMinFiringDegrees=*.* - it doesn't replace jack... I have to edit all 87 tables manually

You realise the pistol is pretty much made for critical hit headshots right? That's why it's so inaccurte when shooting without aiming.

 

If you use it like that, it hardly ever fails, but that obviously doesn't make it a perfect weapon if can't take your time to aim (but all weapons got their cons and pro's like that).

I agree that that is such a stupid idiotic pathetic garbage hateful retarded scumbag evil satanic nazi like term ever created. At least top 5.

I always aim

 

I don't use corner shots or skills at all

I zoom in and fire, but I don't wait for the red crosshair's to appear

 

I'll upload a video and let you see it for yourself.

You'll understand then

Tried the settings you posted earlier and i do feel the game going a lot smoother. With about the same settings (i put 2048 as my ram since i have 3.25 and i didn't know how much that amounted :ermm:) it doesn't drop from 60 while i was getting 30-45 before. The texture popping is still pretty noticeable and i've noticed that the lockpicking minigame now moves a lot faster, which was kind of hard to get used to but now it's a definite improvement since with some practice it makes lockpicking somewhat easier/riskier.

 

Yeah. Good choice for RAM values (3.25gig minus about 1gig for system services and other stuff running in the background gives around 2048Mb for game to use) and I'm happy that you found these changes improving the game.

 

Anyway: I was checking in Unreal Engine 3 documentation and found some interesting stuff.

 

Alpha Protocol don't use any "next-gen" Shader Model 3.0 bells and whistles, hence there isn't any option in config files to switch it on or off. But on the other hand - few games were made with SM3.0 technology and it's documented that Unreal Engine 3 have native support for it. So... I decided to dig a little deeper and experiment with what I've learned...

 

Outcome? (watch in full screen)

Unlocked SM3.0 support gave full AA and better AF options - all regulated by engine, so I could turn them off in my GFX control panel. Haven't seen any texture-popping during action yet (I'm now pretty sure that problems with Clearinghouse are from bad scripts or quirky .upk management). Only problem might be for those with weaker hardware - major FPS hit - from ~120+ to stable 60FPS (which is still playable, though).

 

Extreme visual quality tweak for people with strong hardware. Enjoy!

Hamilton 45 default pistol accuracy

 

its a friggin joke

 

Here is the video

Now if that is close range, imagine it as distance opens. Your chances of an accurate headshot are extremely slim

 

no crosshairs and no chainshot, do a walking while aimed headshot. even a crouched while aimed headshot during movement.

Think out of box. How big is the circle shows how inaccurate is the pistol, not how big is recoil (big difference compared to standard shooters). So, use those critical shots, if you want to be really accurate, or use proper assault rifle if you want long range accuracy (just because you can point crosshair to someone far away doesn't mean that pistol should be as accurate as rifle). Or just don't aim for the head, but the body (so that whole circle is on enemy, increasing chance of actual hit). There is reason why body armor is more important then helmet.

....blah blah blah.....

 

If you want to play some shooter game, you should go and buy Conviction or Modern Warfare 2 - instead of RPG game.

In Alpha Protocol, to be more accurate with your guns, you have to gain experience and get some skills. There's also many upgrades available, which makes weapons even more deadly. Stop trolling on these forums and especially in this thread. There's no proof yet that any gun stats are moddable through config files...

 

Now - kindly leave, if you want to continue this idiocy - in every language, there's thing called "punctuation", and similarly - every game have its premises. You seems to not knowing either, which makes you a joke. Over.

 

---------------------------------------

Back on topic - could anyone with W7 or Vista try to enable DX10 support in above config (AllowD3D10=True) and check if it's crashing the game? Thanks in advance.
