I know this is digging up an old topic - but I thought a quick note worthwhile for those not technically minded enough to go thru the patching process:

- you can find xrRender_R2.dll in various mods with this patching already done - ie. Twilight K.E.T. has one that works for vanilla and AMK - so worth trying in other mods - looks like it's set to 200m.

Another mod that I think may have patched xrRender tho I haven't checked yet is MISERY

I also haven't found an R1 patched xrRender - if i do find one I'll post info.

I may have a go at patching R1 myself and upload it to filefront or something (seeing as no one else has - rolleyes) and again I'll post info if I do that.

Thanks, Info on any already done ones you find will be appreciated. I've tried to set up and do my own but failed so I've been looking for some aswell. I knew about Ket's and a DX11 one for COP but I take a major hit with that COP one. MY fps goes from 100 ish to 20 ish.

Heres the link for the COP one as posted by Loner up in the COP section.
http://www.x-raysdk.com/files/patches/StalkerCOPAlexMorozGrassPatch.exe

It looks great but it seems to have been done for max distance on dx11 and requires a very capable machine, I'm taking the loss mentioned with a PhenomII x4, 4gb(1066) DDR3 and an overclocked Sapphire HD7850 (It feels unplayable).

We could do with a set made for each game with different distances for each setting, r1, r2, r3 and r4, Not just for maxed out system users.

I will also let you know of any I find and I'll check for posts here too, cheers.

Just yesterday, I did a patch for 1.0004 SoC with the value of 401. Tried 801 too, wasn't that bad on my new rig, slight stutter, but 401 was a good compromise. Anyone need any versions of the grass patch for 1.0004 soc, I'd be willing to patch the files.

Yes please, I'd like all the variations I can get hold of so I can use it with all the mods I use.

Well, I can do those, but for 1.0004 only. I don't want to patch my current install of SoC any further, until I've finished a project I'm working on. But I can do the different distance variations for 1.0004.

That's great, I'm sure you'll get plenty of people downloading them, Thanks.

If you want the COP ones too I also have DX10 and DX11 (I'm not sure if I did DX9) patched to 300 which seems to be the best performance-to-visual quality ratio I found.

Ok, here are some prepatched distance files.
Remember to backup your original file, in case you want to revert back to vanilla distance or experience any issues.
There are a few distance presets: 89,97, 125, 201, 401 and 801 meters.

These files are ONLY for 1.0004 running with full dynamic lighting, though I'm not sure if any of the patches affect the Xrenderer_R2.dll files. Wouldn't recommend trying these with other patches (unless you remember to backup
the original file, in which case, no harm done... )

INSTALL:

Pick the distance number you want and just copy the xrenderer_r2.dll for that into the game's BIN folder.

Yes please, I'd like all I can get so I can find the best for my system. Including dx9, static etc if anyone has them. 300 does sound more like what my pc can handle at the moment so thanks


@Darius6, Thankyou.

I don't have time right now to patch DX8 and 9 or fool around with different numbers, I'm just going to package up what I already have for CoP:

http://www.sendspace.com/file/wm5xya

It's only DX10 and 11 it turns out, with 300 distance.

I don't even know if I have the stuff installed to patch the other dll's or if I remember how I got it working.
If/when I have time I'll patch the other two.
