    Mod to unlock and target 60fps in Crash Bandicoot 4 It's About Time

    I've included two variants, dynamic 720p (original res) or dynamic 540p. The dynamic resolution adjustments are more aggressive for handheld.

    To install: select your variant and locate the 010073401175E000 folder to atmosphere/contents/

    Most of my testing was done in docked mode with a maximum overclock and the game plays very well with the dynamic 720p variant though did drop into the 40-50fps range during more demanding sections, testing those sections with the 540p mod held in the 50-60fps range. The game doesn't look too bad in docked mode at 540p thanks to the TAA solution it uses, TAA is not used in handheld mode however.

    I recommend adjusting the overclock values until you find a performance you're comfortable with, Masagrator's Status-Monitor-Overlay and NX-FPS tools will help you check the exact performance.

    Please can you make 720p with 30fps in handheld mode?

    I just use reverse NX to set game to docked mode into handheld mode. then use this patch...
    Was hoping it is possible to add in more details, of lightening/atmosphere.

    Feels pretty good at 1224/921mhz on the CPU/GPU, looks nice in docked mode but damn at 1224/460mhz in handheld it can get BAD

    Great work man! Is it possible with maximum gpu clock to boost docked resolution to dynamic 900p or close to it?

    For anyone looking for graphical improvement mods there's already an excellent 1080p mod out there by @ecl0674

    The only issue is that cannot be posted here as it contains the full exefs main instead of a patch so you'll have to locate it yourself.

    Group quality AA set to 2 looks too blurry on TV IMO

    That mod isn't really 1080p, as max dynamic resolution threshold is 66.66% so max output resolution is 720p, with min resolution threshold 44.44% so min resolution output is 480p. The game resolution is in the 720p-480p range in docked mode.
    I tried increase the min resolution threshold but it causes framerate issues, even with max OC.

    can you PM me where to look for it? Google search turns up nothing. I'm not asking for the patch, just where to look for it.

    BTW regarding @ecl0674 mod exefs part only adds motion blur if I'm not mistaken, it's not needed to enable effects, tweak resolution and TAA. So it's legal post it here without the exefs section.

    Admittedly I didn't actually try it out or look at the files, just saw the Russian notes and screenshots. edited to remove as mod is incomplete as stated by ecl0674

    How would you tweak effects? Cuz the lightening missing in ps4/ps5 is what annoys me most.

    Nope. 1st - able to change shadows cascades, 2nd - able to set shadows distance above 2.0, and 3rd - motion blur.
    Please, do not try it without main file. This mod is desinged to use with exefs.

    It looks like a great mod, just wondering why you don't use small ips patches instead of the full main? Much more preferable in terms of size and being able to share.

    What strings did you patched in the main? I can make an IPS patch out it if you want

    Just compare 2 files (orig and mod) and you'll see.
