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


OK, here we go:


(ALL THE PICTURES ARE FROM 9.9, THE PROCEDURE IS TOTALLY THE SAME FOR 9.15 I'M JUST TO LAZY TO MAKE NEW SCREENSHOTS)

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 (or 15 if you use addblock):


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



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



The download will start.

3. 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:



4. 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:



5. 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...

    2. i know this would as a lot but, could someone run this on their PC and upload a TORRENT of the completed compressed textures at 6%

    3. or how about using "http://tortoisesvn.net/downloads" SVN folder and linking it to the creator of this compression, and all you would need to do is link your svn folder to his, and when you add a compressed texture, everyone else would get that texture in their svn folder

  2. i think i did this before, i ran the stuff on windows pc and then transfered the compressed textures to mac and placed them in the .app WOT file in the right location, and it works.... JUST A PAIN TO have to run on windows then transfer then paste in right location is all....

    1. This has a much better compression options since the wot tweaker compresses just sever textures, this will compress (overwrite) ALL.
      Wot tweaker will be good for disabling some ingame effects that cause stuttering on slow machines.
      Also, this is the version for 9.15.
      You need the 9.15.1.1. version...

    2. I just noticed that now wow I will find the right one and I will use both wot tweaker and this together.

    1. Black sky + wot tweker plus (to diable some ingame effects like smoke etc.) + defrag your HDD with smartdefrag (google it, it's free) + XVM (remove it, if it's NOT very important to you), Tundra DrWebber (removes foliage and thus the CPU/GPU have less to render, you can set it up to work only in sniper mode)

      Apart from this use as little mods as you can since they all make a little workload for the CPU.
