9.9 Texture Compression By Kir_Vik (6%, 12%, 25%, 50%)

Advertise
DISCLAIMER:

This will make your game fly even on a toaster but it also make the game unstable.

This should be done ONLY on a SD client.
Make a backup of  \World_of_Tanks\res\packages\ folder before attempting this.
You are using this on your own risk !!!





OK, here we go:

1. Go to the end of this post and chose one of the download links. The smaller the number %, the greater is the compression (6% compression is around 16mb, 50% compression is around 650mb, you get the idea. Smaller texture size - bigger FPS)

2. When you press the download link, you will be transferred to a shrink address site, just wait 5 seconds:


After 5 seconds a "SKIP THIS ADD" button will appear, click on it:


You will be redirected to mediafire (file sharing site), click on the download button:




The download will start.

4. Create a folder anywhere you want. We will use that folder to unpack the file that we are downloading. Unpack the files into that folder:



5. Depending on what you want do compress you can chose from:

  • Trees, grass etc (foliage)
  • Objects (house textures)
  • Ground (rocks, ground textures)
  • Tanks (tank textures)
  • Map border
  • Tanks camo
  • Tank Tracks (yes, they too take some of the fps on toasters)
We will go for the "Install All Textures":

This will open a Command Prompt window and the textures will unpack into the folder where you unpacked your downloaded files (wait for the Command Prompt window to close.):

Command Prompt window:



New folder with the actual textures:



6. Inside the new folder there is a whole bunch of files and folders. You need to copy ALL of them to "game location"\World_of_Tanks\res\packages\:



7. After you copy ALL files, double click on the file called "autoinstall_[9.x].bat" (this file must be in the "game location"\World_of_Tanks\res\packages\):



This will again open a Command Prompt window and start the actual texture installation. 
Wait for the Command Prompt window to close. All done...
