Control - Remedy Dev Improves the Game on His Own to Stunnning Effect
A developer from Remedy decided to develop an unofficial patch for Control on its own, fixing virtually all problems of the game. Among other things, he introduced HDR support, improved DLSS, lighting and ray tracing, and fixed some technical issues.
Released in 2019 Control is undisputedly a visually appealing game, but this does not mean that its setting and technical layer are without flaws. Remedy has already finished with the development of the project, but one of the developers employed by the team was not ready to say goodbye to this title and developed a modification, fixing virtually all the remaining problems in the game.
The project was called CONTROL - HDR Ultrawide DLSS RT Patch and the list of changes it offers is impressive.
- The mod adds native support for HDR.
- Updated DLSS to version 3.1.1 and improved its implementation.
- DLAA support has been added.
- Introduced a new maximum texture setting that removes texture docking issues in front of the player's eyes (this is a suggestion for those with cards having at least 8 GB of memory).
- New higher ray tracing and volumetric lighting settings have been added.
- Full support for ultra-wide screens, even up to 32:9 . By the way, problems with interface elements displaying incorrectly in resolutions with aspect ratios other than 16:9 have also been fixed.
- Fixed incorrect launching of the game on GPUs other than Nvidia and AMD (e.g. Intel Arc).
- Numerous engine fixes have been implemented, reducing game hangs and other technical bug fixes.
Digital Foundry delighted with the mod
As you can see, the list of changes is impressive and the project is a must-have item for those who want to return to Control. To see how all these improvements look in action, it's worth watching the video prepared by Digital Foundry.
