Heroes Generals Engine Room

World War 2 wasn’t just won by the soldiers. Dedicated support teams behind the lines kept things running smoothly. Their invisible contributions made a huge difference that was reflected on the battlefield for the victorious Allies.

Making a similar contribution to the war effort is a new render engine for Heroes & Generals. The “Engine Room” update increases frame rate by 20% on average, with 70% of players in the latest test seeing an improvement, according to a press release from Reto-Moto. If you’re looking for the technical-speak on how it works, the new render engine is

the result of a complete rewrite of the render engine optimizing it for a modern dataflow by using advanced multi-threading techniques so it better utilizes multiple CPU-cores

The update also adds a new tone-mapping system to provide crisper colors and temporal anti-aliasing for a more stable image. One downside of the new render engine is that the game no longer supports DirectX 9 graphics cards, which “served as a hindrance to game performance.”

You can get the skinny on the whole update on the Heroes & Generals site.

    that game has all these grenadier achievements and mods to grenades. yet even if you activated membership and did amazingly well with them it still wouldn’t self sustain. making the entire games push to be a better grenadier a huge waste of time and efforts s your cash flow gets sucked into constant repairs. they say thats good who would want everyone running around a battlefield just grenadeing people as a specialty? my response is then why even have mods for it in the first place?
