I recently updated my ACT ToolKit Help Document, with re writes and additional text. It is much easier to read and I've improved the understanding better for Windows 8.1/10 use.
After that I did some tests with it to see if performance can be increased in Windows 10 in D3D mode for EAW. (natively, straight with no wrapper program).
I have found some Fixes that work to increase speed, but just a bit. ;)
This Help Document explains the Microsoft ACT Toolkit and some usage instructions plus my on going testing results.
If you like working with the Registry or want to work with Compatibility Toolkit program by testing different settings , This doc is for you! :)
Here' s the page from my web site: https://eaw.neocities.org/windows-act-toolkit.html
It can get complicated, but if you have questions, please ask them here, and I'll try to answer them. Thanks!
Stormbirds summed up the new updates for Cliffs of Dover.
A series of updates over the last several days have focused on the work that Team Fusion Simulations is busy doing turning IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover into a VR supported sim. That’s not all because they are also busy upgrading the visuals of the sim with higher resolution textures and TrueSky technology for new volumetric clouds. Here’s the latest!
Try and find the bombers in these clouds
Higher resolution textures, VR support, and volumetric clouds round out the headline features of a future visual update coming to IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Blitz and Desert Wings – Tobruk. These veteran sims are getting one of the most significant updates in the series’ history when it comes to core technologies and the inclusion of the new cloud technology, on its own, will likely be as transformative as it has been for other sims that have employed it.
I couldn’t agree more with this statement from Team Fusion.
Have a look at some of the screenshots below or check out even more 4K resolution images here.
As of yet, no release date has been offered for this update and work appears to be ongoing on this project. Still, it seems like we’re getting closer to do the time when it will become available. It should be very interesting to check out when we get there. More to come!
