ULG (Ultra Low Graphics)




Change Log



Version 5.0

Some simple but necessary changes to the installation script. There are now several different options of graphics 'levels'. IE XXXL vs XXL vs XL. Also a few functionality changes and some updates to the configurations as usual. No XP yet, sorry.


Version 4.0

Major changes to both the config and installer. Should now work with Vista 7 and 8. XP no, maybe in the future. Remember to extract the entire folder to your desktop, don't just run it from a temporary download folder or it will not work. Aside from that I have done extensive testing on all the computers I have at hand with no issues. So enjoy!
A special thanks to sracha, who also did extensive beta testing and helped with optimizing the configs even further.


Version 3.2 - Windows 7

Adds and fixed a few extras. The installer is heavily revised (again) from the previous version. I now understand that a certain utility that works perfectly in Windows 7 does not work in Windows 8 so I am splitting the file into two versions; one for W7 and one for W8. So far I have not found a solution for W8 users, but I am working on it.


Version 3.2 - Windows 8

Cancelled... Vista , 7 , and 8 are all combined in 4.0 now.


Version 3.1

The installer is now much more intelligent and auto-detects most needed information. Also some major improvements to performance. ~200mb decrease in vram usage (now averaging 300mb total usage) and 15-25 fps improvement from default low settings. And the glitch where characters eye textures were just gray is now fixed too.


Version 3.0

Discontinues both the 'config' and texture pack versions. I have now built everything into a standalone batch installer so there is no more config editing or incomplete texture packs. This is probably the final design I will do, but there will defenitely be more optimization updates.


Version 2.0

Adds a config version alongside the texture packs. This config modification will use multiple processor optimizations and texture skipping mods to heavily decrease system load. Much more efficient than the texture pack.


Version 1.3

Added more landscape textures.


Version 1.2

Added a lot of landscape and terrain textures.


Version 1.1

Decreased size and increased compression of textures.
