Adjust LOD on AMD/ATI Graphics Cards On The Fly with QuickLOD

This weekend we already explained why GENiEBEN is, statistically speaking, most likely to be the cause of your blocked submission. But of course GENiEBEN does more than just fulfill the role of Result Moderator. He builds nifty software tools and then shares them with the result of the community.

Today, GENiEBEN shared an application called QuickLOD. This tool allows you to change Level Of Detail for ATi/AMD cards on the fly, meaning in between GT loading screens for example. The great thing about this tool is that it's open source. The github repository is shared in the forum thread.

Enjoy the tool everyone, and thanks GENiEBEN for sharing!

sweet.

GENiEBEN says:

Hey guys, small issue with installer, will fix it later tonight. Move the folder release\platforms one level up to fix it yourself.

Belgium Teemto says:

Nice this will replace setLOD in my tool kit. Maybe an idea for a future improvement would be to add support for NVIDIA cards as well?

It will support nvidia as soon as they fix their API.
I've updated the installer (on github), it should now work correctly, please update.

Is there any instructions for how to use and apply this to the Apps, for those who are newbies to the HWbot!!

Respectfully,

AJ.

Belgium Massman says:

1) move the slider 2) click apply 3) open benchmark 4) hit short-key (like ctrl+alt+1) Then the LOD should be applied during the benchmark :).

United Kingdom Ajay57 says:

Thanks for the reply MassMan any tips for which bench marks this works best with, sorry to ask to many questions of you!!
Its just i am trying to improve my 2D and 3D Mark Scores here.

Happy New Year,
AJ.

Step 2 has to be "Save and minimize" if you want the application to respond to hotkeys during benchmark.

Thank you for all the work and commitment in doing this for everyone, i look forward to trying this out soon. Just waiting for my new Nvidia Cards to arrive in the next few day's.

Respectfully,

Forgot to update this, for those unaware, it doesn't work if LOD was never altered before with other tool; so yeah, do what riska said. Do not bother with LOD in CSGO, it is useless, and you will not see the bloody bomb anymore jfyi :)

VERY awesome, looking forward to nVidia support one day :)

Thankyou for making this!
