The hack must be performed on all the ?cfg? files in the ?CVarGroups? folder.

To put it visually, you replace the following code (which is the High setting), with the longer code below (which is Very High).


e_water_ocean_soft_particles= 1

The difference between “high” settings and the tweaked settings is immense: shadows are deeper, more realistic; the leaves have better reflective properties, better textures; the colours are better; and the level of detail is simply stunning. With these settings I’m running the game between 15-25 FPS at 1440×900 and (wait for it) 8x AA, and it looks PERFECT. Best of all, this is in XP.
