Graphics settings recommendations


Ultra graphics + Ultra textures settings specs = 4GB 780TI or 290X or higher recommended for this settings
High graphics + Ultra textures settings specs = GTX670 or equivalent for a stutter free experience
Go to control panel and set triplebuffering on, vsync on adaptiv and maximun prerender frames 2. make sure you use my SMAA configuration.
and high graphics settings which are superior to the original game ultra settings. Do not use ultra unless you have the specs above.
Also make a shortcut of the game and go to properties and paste this att the end of target -disablepagefilecheck -cpuCount=4 -exThreads=4
I believe that you may now be able to turn off DOF and still see it during
cinematics

Beaware that you may play with Low and medium whitout any major lost in visual quality.Also know that FPS will go down
when using Ultra textures. Know that after playing on ultra for some time
the game will create a cache to improve the texture loading. This will get
rid of the stuttering after you run WD on Ultra a few times.


Important mod Information


This version will be totally tweakable meaning. You may choose Low, Medium, High,
Ultra and Custom or even mix a match between those settings. These settings have
been tweaked and optimized for better quality and performance. They are much better
than vanilla settings and you get all the eye candy. This mod include modified high
and ultra textures. meaning you will see some ultra textures when playing with high
textures and you WILL BE ABLE to play on Ultra with minimal or no stuttering nevertheless
I would recommend you to put the graphics settings on high or medium when playing with
ultra textures due to an FPS hit. you might be surprise how well it looks. My high graphics
settings are superior than vanillas Ultra settings and much more optimised for quality
and performance. Same goes to my medium setting and low. The ultra settings
are much more superior to vanillas Ultra settings and therefore quite taxing on
your system, nevertheless it has been optimized as much as possible so you can achieve
good performance.

Only the HQ mods feature the modified textures and tweakable settings.
Only Ultra settings have been optimized on The Atmosphere mods
version 1,2,3 and 3.1

Directions:


Unpack and put the patch files(patch.fat and patch.dat in your data_win64 folder in
your Watch Dogs directory Put my SweetFX in the bin folder in your Watch Dogs directory.
The sweetfx is optional only if you want the border. Replace your gamerprofile located
in your documents/ mygames/ Watchdogs with mine.


Minimum System specs:

GTX670, I7 CPU. 16GB RAM. or equivalent
This mods is aim to those who want more graphic fidelity and smoother game play.
This mod has been tested with a GTX670 and GTX670 SLI only so I cannot account
for poor performance on lower systems. If you wish to run SLI which is kind of
broken in this game. you may do so with high textures, ultra settings and Fxaa or
MSAA 4x
.

Ubisoft has announced that the first Watch Dogs game, originally released in 2014, can be played for free for a limited time on PC. The deal is a part of the Free Trial promotion for Ubisoft’s uPlay digital distribution service, and as such requires uPlay to be installed to access the free period. The promotion runs until November 14.

Watch Dogs’ release was controversial for suffering an apparent visual downgrade when compared to its initial reveal trailer, which premiered at Ubisoft’s E3 2012 press conference. The trailer, embedded below, contained significant visual filters such as depth of field and bokeh lens distortion which where downgraded or not present in the retail release two years later.


With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best mods that you should be using when playing Watch Dogs for free – many of which seek to address the visual quality of the game and restore it to a standard first envisioned by this reveal trailer.


This small tool is where you should start your Watch Dogs modding adventures. Download and extract it to any folder on your PC, and then run it and point it to your Watch Dogs install directory (This may be set by uPlay itself). Them simply select the relevant “patch.fat” file of your downloaded mods, and away you go.

Watch Dogs Enhanced Reality Mod

A graphical enhancement mod suite that features fully customisable features designed for a range of PCs. At the highest end, the mod includes changes such as improved lighting and shadows, depth of field, dynamic wind and rain, and high quality particles. The latest version of the mod even includes a new highest possible setting – Ultra Uber!


ingame

A player character replacement mod that swaps out Watch Dogs’ protagonist Aiden Pearce with secondary character Clara Lille. Pearce wasn’t exactly the most warmly-received character (as evidenced by Ubisoft’s own tonal switch in Watch Dogs 2) so the chance to play as someone else isn’t to be missed. This mod is playable in the base game’s singleplayer – it won’t work in multiplayer, and will cause issues when trying to play some of the singleplayer DLC.

Though Watch Dogs doesn’t put as strong a focus on carjacking as its clear competitor – Grand Theft Auto – does, there’s still a plethora of vehicles to find and acquire. And with car chases a crucial part of escaping police and hacking obstacles into their path, you’re going to want the best vehicle available. This mod lets you select and spawn any car in the game from an in-game menu – even one such aforementioned police car.

Though Watch Dogs does allow you to keep playing after the story campaign is over, it does not contain a New Game Plus mode. This mod fixes that, by way of providing edited savegames that emulate the feel of starting in New Game Plus. This means you’ll have plenty of cash, and start with all the available skills unlocked.

While the above Enhanced Reality mod is designed to be customisable and scalable for lower end PCs, those with high-end rigs will want to dive into Kadzait24’s E3 mod – which does whatever it can to recreate the original graphical quality of Watch Dogs’ E3 2012 demo. You can see the results in action in the video below.

Hey,

Is this mod compatible with the last version, the Watch_Dogs Complete Edition on UPlay ?

I'd like to give it a try, but seeing the date of the last update for the mod, I want to know if it works before.

Thanks !
