Votan's Adaptive (Video-)Settings  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.5.0
by: votan [More]
Description
This add-on adjusts the view- and particle distance to the current graphic load and context (normal, combat, UI hidden) to stabilize the framerate. If the view distance drops and drops, additional effects get disabled:
Distorsion, god rays and antialiasing. In this order.

And if the framerate raises again, e.g. because you left the crowded city, the view distance increases again. This way you can choose between quality and performance: Smooth fps in combat and best graphics otherwise.

Since 1.3.0: If you travel or use a door, the view distance is set back to the average between minimum and maximum. This is because:
  • You may leave a low GPU load zone and enter a heavy GPU load zone and do not hit a GPU burst wall.
  • You may leave a heavy GPU load zone and enter a low GPU load zone and would see the "nothing" where the opposite wall should be.

This add-on works with Shissu's PvP/Game Booster. The difference is:
  • Shissu's PvP/Game Booster is more effective, but also regonizable and active during combat/on demand only.
  • This add-on is less effective than Shissu's PvP/Game Booster, but more subtile and operates all the time.

If you want to see the add-on's activities, enable framerate performance indicator (/fps)

A "Thank You" to @dorrino and @Cabum for their feedback.

Remarks
  • Be fair to the system: If you use (adaptive) v-sync, like I do, keep the minimum framerate a few frames below limit (<60).
    Otherwise the add-on can not detect under-load.
  • As higher your target framerate, as slower the view distance will increase again.

If you feel dissatisfied with the second main menu entry for "Addons", take a look at Harven's AS to LAM adapter.

Important!
If your view distance drops and keeps at minimum (your Minimum View Distance) you may have a problem with an add-on or need a new machine .

If in doubt, just don't use the add-on and you will see.

Beschreibung
Dieses Addon passt die Sichtweite und Partikeldistanz der aktuellen Grafikauslastung und dem Kontext an (Normal, Kampf, UI ausgeblendet) um die Framerate zu stabilisieren.
Wenn die Sichtweite schrumpft und schrumpft, werden weitere Effekte abgeschaltet:
Verzerrung, Lichtstrahlen und Antialiasing. In der Reihenfolge.

Wenn die Framerate wieder steigt, zum Beispiel weil Du die überfüllte Stadt verlassen hast, steigt die Sichtweite wieder. Auf diese Weise kannst Du zwischen Qualität und Performance wählen: Hohe Framerate im Kampf und ansonsten bessere Grafik.

Seit 1.3.0: Wenn Du reist oder eine Tür verwendest, wird die Sichtweite wieder auf den Mittelwert zwischen Minimum und Maximum gesetzt. Und zwar deswegen:
  • Möglicherweise verläßt Du eine Zone mit geringer GPU Last und tritts in eine Zone mit hoher GPU Last und wirst nicht von einer Belastungsspitze umgehauen.
  • Möglicherweise verläßt Du eine Zone mit hoher GPU Last und tritts in eine Zone mit geringer GPU Last und würdest das "Nichts" sehen, wo die gegenüberliegende Wand sein sollte.

Dieses Addon funktioniert zusammen mit Shissu's PvP/Game Booster. Der Unterschied ist:
  • Shissu's PvP/Game Booster ist effektiver, aber auch bemerkbarer und nur während des Kampfes/bei Bedarf aktiv.
  • Dieses Addon ist weniger effektiv als Shissu's PvP/Game Booster, aber mehr subtil und arbeitet die ganze Zeit.

Wenn Du sehen willst, was das Addon macht, kannst Du den Framerate Performance Indikator aktivieren (/fps)

Anmerkung
  • Sei fair zu dem System: Wenn Du, so wie ich, (adaptives) V-Sync verwendest, halte die Minimum Framerate unter der Begrenzung (<60).
    Sonst kann das Addon keine Unterlast feststellen.
  • Je höher die Ziel Framerate, desto langsamer erhöht sich die Sichtweite wieder.

Wenn Du nicht mit dem zweiten Hauptmenüeintrag für "Erweiterungen" leben kannst, schau Dir mal Harven's AS to LAM adapter an.

Wichtig!
Wenn die Sichtweite auf Minimum (15) fällt und dort bleibt, besteht entweder ein Problem mit einem Addon oder Du brauchst ein neuen Rechner .
Im Zweifel, verwende das Addon einfach nicht und Du wirst sehen.

To Do
- Option to change view distance only. Keep particle distance untouched.

Gallery
All sceenshots made at 2560x1440 (WQHD) with "Supreme" texture quality.

Not the best moment to seek for the screenshot key, but hey 60fps

yes.
But I guess we talk about a G-Sync Monitor. Do you really care about until "dropping" to 100fps?
I would love the ability to extend it to 144fps. It does prevent me from using the addon.

Yes, of course. Check your addon settings section.
Thanks for the response but how can I do that? In the "VotansAdaptiveSettings.txt" file in Addons folder I don't see what I could change to make this happen.

Port into trial: addon changes settings to "minimalistic profile", I'd also deactivate the adaptive scaling form your addon (I feel it does way better overland than in trials, but purely subjective)
I understand that some options require a reloadui, but if you make it a habit to port in then do a realodui (many do anyways, to change the addon setup)...

Port out: addon chooses "nicer" profile, reloadui. And we get to see tamriels beauty in HD XD
You confuse me. Nor does this addon change settings which required reload, neither does it effect quality that much. It reduces the view distance and some minor visual effects.
Yeah I realize that. XD

It would be additional functionality obviously, but I thought it would fit to this addons.
Otherwise I can put it under addon request in the forums
Actually the options we can change with your "advanced settings" would also nicely fit in XD

For what it's worth, Shissu's Guild Tools setup panel is also broken. Not sure if it's for the same reason, but I'm also not able to access the separate Votan Add-Ons Settings menu panel.

I'd like to get the big dorky "current quest" off of covering the middle of the map.. but can't.

Is there another way to turn it off?
I have actually the same problem for ALL Votan's addon.

IF i want to get the settings, i am forced to use the https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info...AMadapter.html which i totally dislike.

i did try all i could, as far as possible, downloaded 3 times the addons, removed all my others addons and libs that were not required by Votan, nothing works but this library that is not up to date either because using https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info937-HarvensAStoLAMadapter.html the game ask me to get a new version of this.
Yes, confirmed.
Harven's Addon Settings is not crashing, but not providing newly required data. So it says, they are not available.
As a work-a-round you need to use the adapter until Harven updates the lib.

sorry.
