View Full Version : How do I get good Water??

I am running IL2 1946 with Full Graphic Detail (I think it's called Excellent).

And I have the Water=2 variable in my confi.ini file.

Here's what my water looks like:

But I'd like my water to look this good. I see many images in the Screenshot thread taht show water this good. How can I get mine to look this good?

I think you go to your conf.ini file and set Water=4, and then set terrain detail to Perfect.

I believe Water 1,2 or 3 is good water

You must have hardwareshaders = 1 in the config too.

ATI: Water=2
NV: Water=3 or 4

Did anything change with 1946? If I remember correctly, I think Foo.bar is right. 2 is good for ATI. But wasn't sure if any other settings were changed/added.

I also did notice that 1946 seems to have a Perfect setting for Land Textures in the Video Options. I hadn't noticed that before because I copied all my mods and settings from my old setup.

You buy it in a bottle, and don't go to Mexico. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif
