gear How to make Silent hunter III look better (for Nvidia graphic cards)[Pics included]

Hello i have created a small tutorial video how to install nvidia inspector and how to load up the best graphical profile(which is made by Fubar2niner for Silent hunter III. This can somewhat effect the performance. All of the files are included in the description. That's my cat in 0:49
Enjoy.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I know for some reason it doesin't fix the non shining sun in periscope but it does fix it on ext camera and etc.



External camera

Strange you still have the flat sun in second periscope view...it should be like the second external view.

Can you post the list of options that this profile make?

I've looked into it, and they have essentially the same AA settings as in my configuration (and similar result). But the sun looks amazing -- I want this!
My sun looks like in your periscope view.

But I little bit paranoid about "Download this. Then download that. Then run this with that. Don't ask, it's just works, it's magic!"

Works like a charm.

Sometimes the sun disk is small, but it depends on the viewing angle at that time. Otherwise its quite large indeed

Tried the settings. They make my game lag. I have a modern computer, so it is not a performance issue, probably drivers.



But I get very similar visuals just forcing AA at 4x. Greater values kills the sun. And like in the original post, in periscope view I have sun only as a disc. But not lags -- probably game uses different rendering in periscope view.

You can try by going to nvidia control panel and resetting settings for sh3. And try installing the profile again. And if doesint work. Just try to setn AA to X2

I already reverted to my settings -- it looks very close to yours screenshots and I'm not that dependent on graphics

Niume,

Thanks for posting your video. I tried the Nvidia Profile Inspector with the SH3 profile you recommended and found it to be an improvement to the original graphics. So far I have not run into any problems. Again thanks!
