Put it in: C:\Username\name\salem('salem' not '.salem')\custom_res
so you'll have custom_res\gfx\... in there after unpacking.


Hans I tried your mod today and still had low fps(there was a boost but not big one). Had higher fps on my old lowgfx mod and even better on usernm tiles mod. No idea what's causing it as your texture files are similiar in kb size to my old ones. Will try repacking both my and usernm tiles when i have time with updated boshaw tool and see the exact fps boost with each gfx mod.


I did run some tests today and checked how much processing power rendering objects takes. Don't count on big fps boost from editing models. (the only exception would be ammount of crops per farm ;P).
I made game render cubes 50 units above each game object.

Normal 10-16fps:

Cubes only 10-18fps:

Nothing 14-20fps:

Both objects+cubes gave me around 8-14fps.

Thanks for those tests, Chiprel, this is very interesting.

Given these results, it is even more puzzling why Crops cause such a performance hit. Perhaps each cotton plant has as many polygons as a house, and so you're rendering a village worth of stuff in just a few fields of cotton.

I must still be missing something. I keep getting the error "This client is too old."

I don't make custom clients, just a graphics mod which can be used BY a custom client. We are all of us at the mercy of EnderWiggin's ability to make updates.

I'm afraid hans long since quit the forum (and, most likely, the game itself).

I know he did it through the layer util (adapted from the haven layer util) which unpacks the resource files, allows you to edit them and also allows you to re-pack them.
You can find info on it here
I have neither the crayons nor the time to explain it to you.
