8.11 Compressed Textures


Update on the old post. This version is for 8.11. Enjoy.

IMPORTANT: This is not the usual AHuMex compressor. AHuMex stopped making his compressor from patch 8.8. This is from a new author, so far works absolutely the same.  

A lot of people have the same problem - old computer or fable laptop. So, can WoT work on something that is not top notch PC machine? The answer is YES. This little program will compress your game textures to 25% or to 3%. At 25% you will get at least 50% higher frame rate, at 5% at least 70%. At 25% compression the game looks the same, at 3% it looks bad but you can play WoT even on a netbook with Atom processor.



Compression on 25%:






Compression on 3%:





Unzip and copy the content of folder"WoT texture 0.8.11 X%.7z" to "World_of_Tanks\res\packages\" double click on Kir_Vik_autoinstall_0.8.11_only.bat file. Command Prompt window will open and the compression will start. This will take about 5-15 minutes. After the Command Prompt window closes by itself restart the computer and play...
Since update 8.6 alot of people had problems with game crashing after compresssion. One of the most common reasons was unupdated DirectX.

*IMPORTANT: I will update this post when I find new version of the compression. So, if any other textures are found they will be posted HERE

    4. 8.11 has a lot of changes so it is about 15% demanding.
      Textures that are added on 13.02.14. are from the same author as the one for 8.10.
      As before this is a trial and error situation. You need to test what is the best solution for you.

    5. Ok. I was wrong. Textures of which i meant are from another author than here. (looks like this: http://worldof-tanks.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/25-.jpg), but they are for 8.10 only at this moment. Thanks and sorry for confusion.

  16. These textures are not compatible with hit zone mods.
    Found this out through trial and error and the missing shaders.pkg but now it is working fine.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Compatible ???
      Hit zone skins are added to the "res_mods" folder, this edit's only content in the "res" folder. The compressor will NOT (ofc) compress hit zone skins, so they will work (if added after compression) just fine.

      Apart from this, on some systems compression just wont work. I have no idea why. Last patch, same author, same textures and about 15% of people had huge issues installing this. For instance, in my clan some 10+ people are using this (laptops with integrated intel graphics, AMD APUs and no problem what so ever)

  21. Hi,
    This is the first time I am trying to use compressed textures. WoT runs OK on my PC but my GPU got busted and now I only have the mobo's internal graphics or no WoT for 2 weeks until I get a new GPU :( With the internal graphics and all settings on Low / Off and Standard rendering I am getting barely 15 fps @ 1366x768 Windowed. So I looked for compressed tex and found your blog. I tried the 1.5% and the 6% packs - ran the installer into a temp folder then copied all the .pkg files into Game_Folder\res\packages after making backup of the packages folder. But with both the packs, the game doesn't start. The launcher tries to start the game then the game crashes and unloads from the memory. If I put in the original .pkg files the game loads as usual. Any idea why this is happening? Also, what do u mean by DirectX needs to be updated? I am on Win 7 x64 and my DirectX is updated for v10 and v11 as well as v9 which I had to install when installing WoT. Thanks for all the help.

    1. About DirectX - some people still run this on win XP and most of them never update DX. So, you have nothing to worry about.

      Like I said before, 15% of users regularly have problems with this. Unfortunately after AHuMex stopped making his textures no one made them that perfect since.

      You can try copying the downloaded packages folder to \World Of Tanks\res_mods\0.8.11\, in theory the game will first fetch the compressed textures and if it has any problems it will revert to the stock ones.

      Apart from that unfortunately I have nothing else what can help you at this moment.

  22. Hi Plazma,

    Thanks for your reply. I understand that these mods are not ur creation so you can only help us as another WoT player :) But still, even one small idea is better than none so I thank you for your suggestion. Will try it now. Btw, where do I place the compressed tex. in the res_mods? Do I create packages folder and then place the compressed textures there? Like this - \World Of Tanks\res_mods\0.8.11\packages\ ?

    Best Regards.

  26. Hi Plazma and the rest of you,

    As I had stated in my last post, I had been unable to run the game using the compressed texture packs posted here. Forget loading the map, even the game (WorldOfTanks.exe) wouldn't run and the game kept crashing. I tested the 1.5%, 3% and 6% textures but it was no help. I also tried extracting the texture files into the res_mods folder as Plazma suggested but that didn't work either as the game only used the stock textures and ignored the compressed ones in res_mods. So I was stuck for a while, unable to play the game at all. But then I found the program WoT Tweaker Plus. Plazma has featured this program in this blog in the past but I got the 8.11 version of it. Since the program doesn't come in English so I had to put all the Cyrillic characters into Google to translate it for myself :P After understanding how the program works I used it to compress the texture files of WoT up to 97% (3% textures). This didn't take long, around 30 minutes. After the program was done, I ran WoT and Bingo!! The game ran flawlessly with all textures compressed. Thanks to Phantasm, the creator of WoT Tweaker Plus, I am now able to play WoT with integrated graphics on my mobo :) Oh and since the program compressed all the stock textures by itself so it doesn't download any additional data from the net. All you have to download is the program itself. Great for those on low speed or limited usage connections (like myself).

    I posted this here so that those of you who cant run the game with the compressed textures could try out this program. Maybe it could work for you as it did for me.

    Regards.

      -I can't copy the cyrillic text from the program's screen, so I can't paste and translate like you did.

      Are there any solutions to my problems? Thanks for the find BTW.

Command Prompt window will open and the compression will start. This will take about 5-15 minutes. After the Command Prompt window closes by itself restart the computer and play...

    1. To be honest with you, this has problems with everything.
      The author recommendation is to apply this on a fresh game client. Now, if the game works stably with compressed textures add mods and see what happens.
      For instance, mods that have anything to do with textures, fog, etc can crash the game after compression.
      So it's a case of trial and error.

  47. Can I compress WOT 9.0 textures with WOT Tweaker Plus?

    1. Yes, but it will only do a partial texture compression. It's better than nothing but still not as good as the real thing.
      My advice - wait for the real thing....
