I Am Weapon: Revival






Not a bad little twin-stick shooter. Surprisingly nice graphics, dynamic lighting, and really nice aesthetics that look like they are pulled right out of a Tim Burton movie. Good thing it looks so good, though, because there's quite a few gameplay design issues that I'm not a fan of, such as infinite respawning enemies (that, worst of all, can and will spawn behind you), unable to rebind controls, and also:


Unfortunately that meme is not an exaggeration. Anyway, I think the pro's slightly outweigh the cons and make it a worthwhile game to play for some mindless violence & decent visuals if you can pick it up on the cheap. Also, even though it's a twin stick shooter, I recommend playing with a keyboard and mouse for more accurate aiming. You'll most likely need it!

Instructions

1. Download fix: HERE
2. Unzip file to game directory where IAmWeaponRevival.exe exists
3. Add IAmWeaponRevival.exe to 3D-Hub Video Player using Nvidia Inspector
4. Add launch option "-window-mode exclusive" without the quotes
5. Recommend increasing convergence until cursor is aligned with character's head.

Tools used for this fix:

-3DMigoto DX11 wrapper
-DarkStarSword's Unity 5.3 template

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn v1.0 W.I.P

Hi All,

I have yet another fix and this time a MMO FFXIV: A Realm Reborn..

First off you need to associate the ffxiv_dx11.exe with a Working 3D PRofile under DX11. I used The Witcher 3 again..

Here is the guide incase you do not know how to assign a exe to a Profile:

1. Guide here [by DHR]


After you do that find the folder where the exe is nested by default it is here:

x:\Program Files(x86)\SquareEnix\Final Fantasy XIV - A Realm Reborn\Game\ffxiv_dx11

insert the fix there. here is the Download link:

*******************************************************************************
EDIT there are 2 links 1 is for the Windows 10-64bit fix and the other for Win7-64bit fix
*******************************************************************************

Win+7+64bit+FFXIV+v4.5.rar


Win+10+-+64bit++FFXIV+v2.5.rar

Here are my Reccomended Graphic settings (Your mileage may vary):

1. General
    a. Enable wet surface areas (Checked)
    b. Real time reflections = max
    c. edge smoothing = FXAA
    d. Transparent light  =  normal
    e. Grass Quality = High
    f. Parallax Occlusion = High
    g. Tessalation = High
    h. Glare = Standard
    I.  Map res = High

2. Shadow all = hide..

3. Use high detail models on shadows
    a. Shadow res = med
    b. Cascading = Off
    c. Softening = Strong

4. Texture filtering= Anistropic
     a. Level = 8x  (end user setting whatever you desire)

5. Movement Physics ALL = Checked

6. Effects ALL = OFF

7.Screen space Ambient Occlusion
   a. HBAO+Quality
   b Glare = Normal

I put in a Convergance Preset which may need to be configured by yourself.. I set it too what I like. so the setting may vary dependent on what you like convergance set at..

Here are the Keystrokes and what they do:

1. "," ket sets the convergance down too 1.5 for Cut Scenes..
2. "." key sets it back for ingame setting..
3. "[" this sets the cycle of convergance settings for nameplates/ Hud items


******************************************************************
UPDATE v2.1: I set the mouse cursor with a convergance hotkey and on a cycle.. you need to use the Software Cursor ingame.. just goto ingame options, then mouse, it is there check it on and voila the mosue will be at same depth with nameplates and hud.. also combined it with the convergance keys already set..

********************************************************************************
Update: I made a new fix for Win 10 and Win 7.  v4.1 and v2.1.. I still need to figure the clouds out and this fix should be good at least until the next patch perhaps..

*********************************************************************************

Update new version with all the skyboxes fixed with the help of bo3b..Win 7 64bit v4.5 and Win 10 v 2.5..


ENJOY ;)

Dragon Ball Xenoverse








Fixed
- Water reflections.
- Floor reflections.
- Portals.
- Wrong refraction/transparency in some special attacks.

Disabled
- A double image effect that appears for a split second when you start to fly fast.

Hotkeys
- F1 and F2: convergence presets. To overwrite the settings, press ctrl+F7.
- F3: environment cel shading toggle. Not disabled by default.
- F4: characters cel shading toggle. Not disabled by default.
- F5: bloom toggle (if it's enabled in the game options). Not disabled by default.
- F6: sun shafts + shiny sun shader toggle. Not disabled by default. To disable it correctly, don't press the key when you are looking at the effect or it will get stuck in that position. You can do it just after you boot the game, for example.
- F7: crosshair (among other things, like the d-pad left information) depth presets. Screen depth by default. Keep pressing this hotkey to increase depth (multiple steps between 50% and 100%). As it isn't dynamic, its accuracy will depend on distance and the depth you choose. Warning: area icons in portals are also used in the d-pad up mission briefing, so they will be at depth there too.

Installation
- Download this file and extract its contents in the root folder of the game ("DB Xenoverse" folder).

Arma3 Fix (W.I.P)

 Hi All,

I thought I would post the current 3D Arma3 fix.. I read the post that had a beginning post and with the help of D-Man11, Helifax I was able to get Arma 3 Fixed up a bit. At least the White Trees, Bushes and Branches are now normal..

Here is the list of what to do:

1. First Associate Arma3.exe, Arma3Launcher.exe with The Witcher 3 Profile in NVidia inspector, and Delete the Original Arma3 Profile..

2. Input the fix found in the DL Link Provided in with the Arma 3 EXE. it contains the 2 bad shader files that needed fixing and the Helix Mod.. Here is where the EXE is nested under Steam:
 
     2a. x:/ local disk/ Program Filesx86 / Steam / steamapps / common / Arma3 / .......

3. Then start up Arma3 and go to the Options/Video menu and set the following likewise:
     3a. Under General/Quality set shadow to Disabled (Still need to work on these) it was reported in the original thread you can set too low but it seemed wierd, you can try and see what you think..
     
      3b. Under Lighting set HDR to Low.. I just did that because of past issues with HDR but it may or may not work at a higher setting (untested)

      3c. AA +  PP Set Bloom, Radial Blur, Rotational Blur and Debth of Field to ZERO..

      4d. Antialiasing set FSAA, PPAA too Disabled..

      5e. Anistropic Filter can be set to whatever you like..

Now With all that done Go into a SinglePlayer -- Showcase mission: Infantry. When the Mission starts the 3D should kick in upon Mission Start. IF it does not do this:

   1. Alt + Tab Out of the game then click the Arma 3 Icon in the taskbar. The game should first minimize then it maximizes upon clicking the Arma 3 Icon in Taskbar and 3D should now be enabled..

But the first time you run the game following the above directions it should just kick in the first time. But if you quit the Mission and goto another mission the 3D may not kick in first time, just do the ALT + Tab trick and it should enable 3d.. I am stumped as to why it does this..

I have noticed in Multiplayer the 3D would not kick in even with the ALT + TAb but entering the Launcher.exe in  The_Witcher 3.exe made it kick in first try.. but subsequent restarting of a mission may not make it work. just alt + tab out and in it should come on..

If it just plain refuses to start in 3D, Please post maybe we need to look further into how to better get 3D enabled ingame..

One Last thing I don't think this fix works with BattleEye.. So if you play on a server with that enabled you may be out of luck.. Be Carefull with this mod and Arma3 Battleye.. I have no idea what will happen. I play on a Private server so no  need for me to worry about it..

EDIT: Well with Battleye Enabled and the fix installed the game will get an error message upaon launching and not run.. So basically you can NOT PLay this game with Battleye and the 3D fix enabled.. :(


Here is the link for the Zipped folder with the Current Fix:

Arma3+Win+7/10+3D+fixv2.0.rar

===================================================================

EDIT: I updated the file and fixed the Aiming Reticle in the red dot at least but should work for other scopes.. you can either use the rifle zoomed out or zoomed in while pressing the "ALT" keypress. it is a toggle that disables the convergance when aiming the rifle..

I just did a quick test in Infantry and it was pretty accurate.. I have to get a way to use the on screen pointer but will need to figure out how to do that.. Hopefully we will have more accurate shots.. 

IF you would like to remove the ingame Crosshair here is where the setting is just set too Zero and save file..

Documents/Arma3/Yourname.Arma3Profile..

Open with Notepad++ and goto line 484: weaponCrosshair=0;

Set too Zero to remove the ingame crosshair..

******************************************************************************

Update v2.0: this should work for both Win 7 and Win 10.. I also added nameplates cycle key so they cycle to depth with the Right Bracket key.. I am unsure but the ingame crosshair maybe better aligned with one of the presets (Untested).

There is an Aiming hotkey to kill convergance when Aiming down the sight.. that is the Left ALT key..


If you like this mod. Just a Thank you and more to it I hope you can now Enjoy Arma 3 In Glorious S3D.. ;) Don't forget to thank all the other modders and coders.. Without their work we would not have so many DX11/DX9 games working Great in S3D.. THNX ALL!!
