Make Games More Playable on the HTC One X with Game Modder
Over the last few months, we have been bringing news about the ongoing battle between users and gaming on the HTC One X. In short, the HTC One X seems to have issues with lackluster performance on games that should be a breeze for such a powerful device. One such solution, as linked above, was a CPU booster app. Now, there is a mod that will change the games themselves to work better on the One X.
XDA Recognized Contributor thunder07 released the mod, which is entitled APK Game Modder. It isn’t as its name may imply. There isn’t any game hacking to unlock infinite credits or special items early in the game. This mod is more for performance purposes only. As thunder07 explains:
This App Will Read A Mod Configuration File & Patch Your Game’s APK to increase/decrease graphics Quality to make the game more playable.
In other words, instead of increasing the power of the One X to handle games as they are, this mod will lower the quality of graphics in games so the device can handle them more easily. Many may just go with making the One X more powerful through overclocking the processor, but some may not want to make their already limited battery life even worse. So for some, this may be the way to enjoy games without ruining battery life.

Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
