If you didn’t know yet, I have a XFX 790i SLI Ultra motherboard that I run my computer on. It’s s775, sadly I’m too poor to get anything else, but it runs along fine with my 8gb DDR3 1600mhz-ram. I actually got it for around 700 SEK, which is about 100 USD, and it’s originally […]
That is the instructional video. I’ve been away pretty much since the release so I haven’t been able to update the site yet, but it’s availible by clicking the huge picture on modbuilder.net - just download it and try it out! I hope you’re pleased with the publishing of configurations and custom tweak guides too!
There is a features list on the website too. But basiclly, the new awesome features are Tweak Guides and publishing. There are still a couple of bugs, so please contact me on twitter or by email and I’ll fix them!
I’m sorry I’m not writing anything advanced or awesome, but I’m tired, it’s half past 12 in the middle of the night and I’m at a friends house sorting out DDR1-ram memory… So yeah. But you have a video to watch!
For all of you that scratches your heads about the location of the Battlefield 3 Configuration File, it’s located under C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Battlefield 3\settings and the file PROF_SAVE_profile – yes, it is correct. The BF3 CFG file does not have a line ending (.cfg, .ini, .con or whatever) – so don’t be fooled by it. There’s also a PROF_SAVE_body file – where your whole soldier profile is located, such as accessories to weapons, skins and other customizations are keeped. However, that’s a binary file – so don’t expect to have much fun with it, sadly.
Leave any question in the comments below and I’ll try to answer them!
Why remake something that already exists? – Well yeah, I started working on this software long before i noticed the BF3 Config Utility by MindWeaver, and when I noticed it, I thought “hey, why not make MY software compatible with his software?” And so I did. This software is a 100% compatible with it, using the same profile system and even has functions to repair faulty profiles.
The goal of this software is to combine small and powerful in a single software. It’s supposed to work while you’re just sitting back and enjoying the ride. I’m pretty much very far from that goal right now (I’m sorry), but all the basic functions are there, like editing, saving/loading from and to profiles, exporting and importing to both files and clipboard, as well as a bunch of neat editing tools customizable for every item.
In the very last day of developing I also added protocol support. This means, basiclly, that you can – using the protocol support – edit the variables of your Battlefield 3 Configuration file and the software. For example, if you have the software installed and a key for it, press here to remove motion blur! Clicking the link will open a ModBuilder BF3 Configurator-window that asks if you want to apply the changes, if you press Yes it will remove motion blur!
There will indeed be a lot of new features for it coming along the way, both on the Protocol support and the software itself. One of the features I’m developing right now is the Guided Tweaking System (where users create guided tweaks by themselves and share with others), that makes it a lot easier to tweak and explain different matters and impacts depending on what you do. Some that is also worth mentioning is the Tweak-Bot that detects faulty configs, errors, or just warns you for different settings that may do bad impact. However, it requires a lot of work looking everything up – and I haven’t had that yet.
