Another week, another release.
- Option to unlock the framerate. Thanks to the hard work of Clément Barnier, the framerate can now be unlocked completely.
This means that if your system can’t maintain 60 FPS, it will drop down gracefully to 55 instead of going directly to 30. There are some issues with this, look into the .ini files for details.
- Fixed the SMAA issue introduced in 1.5 (with edges touching the skybox)
- Fixed the major HUD modification issues with damage numbers and subtitles (other HUD issues remain, including boss health bars)
- Various small performance tweaks
On my PC, I now get between 56 and 60 FPS in the Firelink Shrine, at 2560×1440 with SMAA 4, SSAO 2, 1080p DoF and DoF blur 1. Note that you need to play in windowed mode (or borderless windowed fullscreen mode) or use some third party solution if you want Vsync with an unlocked framerate.
