    Divine Wind faster graphics Pack.

    I've noticed important slowdown on my machine with the latest EU3 expansion, and i don't mean Paradox Connect slowdown, but graphic lag. So I've gone to work, and released a "faster fog". Turned out it wasn't much faster. So I got back to work and I modded out as much as I could.

    Now, for those who have rather laggy computers, you can try this. I'm not sure it will be much of an improvement, but it will not be slower, that I promise .

    There are two versions : the "fast" is probably a bit faster, and the "very fast" is even faster but the graphical quality is "noticeably" reduced.

    How to install:
    -Download the files
    -Go to your EU Folder
    -Go to Data/gfx/
    -Rename the "FX" folder to "Original FX" or something like that
    -copy the new file ( either FX fast or FX Veryfast )
    -Rename the new file to FX
    -Run EU3

    Images of the vanilla EU3 ( for comparison )

    Images of the fast version ( notice the fog, the unit texture is less smooth )

    Images of the very fast version ( no texture on political map, even less smoothness overall )

    Thank you!

    Could we see screenshots showing the differences of the graphics (and their quality) between vanilla, fast and veryfast ?

    Well, I just restarted under MacOSX so it'll have to wait, but I'll do screenshots this evening.

    Great idea, safferli.

    I just updated the first post with information on how to install this ( I had totally forgotten ), and updated the graphic packs with only a very slight FOW in the far view.

    Plus, I added screenshots for comparison, so you see what I mean by "noticeable" difference.

    To those who downloaded, did you notice a speed difference?

    I'm downloading it, will tell you if it helps or not.

    EDIT: I can't download it, for some reason Paradox attachments aren't working.

    For those who have problems with PI attachments, I've linked another source.

    I have a lot of graphic lag only if i am looking the france or the central germany. In asia or india the game works perfectly. I don' t have a great computer but i haven' t ever had this problem in this kind of games.. Victoria II works without problem for example. I tried to use the fast modification but it didn' t work. I will try the faster..

    Wraiiti out of curiousity, did you use the files for 5.1beta for this? Or did you use 5.0?
    I only ask because I assume PDox may have also attempted to improve graphics performance.
    If so, it would be nice to incorporate those also.
    In terms of actual speed difference from your fixpack, I shall report with my results sometime later today.
    O, and nice work with the fastest political map; I've always liked my political maps flat and non-textured, and lately that's just not been possible.

    Thanks & Enjoy.

    I've given a look at the new files: it seems PI has only changed the "arrows" file. I could modify this one but it's not the biggest thing on speed. For the rest, they must have optimized the graphic engine rather than the scripts.

    that's faster , but still noticiably slower than zoomed out ...
    no more unfinished IN AAR's

    I don't have any speed issues, I just hate the new fog. Is there a way for me to get just the bland fog, like if I pull out a certain subset of the files from the 'Fast' version?
