Asphalt 7 Patch Delivers Better Graphics on Newer Devices

Downloading a game from Google Play doesn’t always guarantee that it will have the best graphics possible. Much like console games, Android game visual settings are usually locked in place to ensure smooth game play. While this is great for those who want to play games on older devices, users with newer devices could always have a little better.

Now, there’s a patch for Asphalt 7 to improve the visuals for those with faster devices. The patch was released by XDA Senior Member nfsmw_gr and includes a number of features. They include:

Now the game has:
1)anti aliasing enabled
2)the car and enviroment looks much better and the biggest plus
3)it it runs 60 fps most of the time!! (i need confirmation about this,although it’s much smoother!)
4)POTENTIALY decrease battery drain due to less workload for the gpu with the new settings…
I’ve played 20 minutes and only 5% is gone!(using lh3 ics and siyah 1.5.2 with undervolted and overclocked cpu+gpu (1600mhz cpu,533mhz gpu)

It is also quite easy to install, as it only involves moving a modified file to the proper location in the game folders. While this may not be the best choice for those with older devices, those running the latest hardware such as the Samsung Galaxy S III may find the game much more appealing after the modification.

There are two versions—one for the paid version of the game and one for the free version. The free version is said to be available in the Samsung App Store, but it is only for a limited time and other restrictions. For more details, head to the original thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
