  • Disabled motion blur, vignette, dof (gameplay), c.a., in game AA
  • Enhanced smooth shadow (more realistic and better performance)
  • Locked control scheme to pad (can be changed)
  • Sweetfx profile for better dark colors
  • Enhanced view (better compromise in performance and quality)
  • Better grass (and performance)
  • Textures filtering optimized
  • Almost no pop in
  • Balanced npc
  • Better controller sensitivity
  • Performance hairwork only on Geralt
