This project will be halted due to studies.I hope you understand.
Anyone intrested in continuing this pm me.




Intro:

Hey guys...
As you know you can now get asphalt 7 for free os samsung apps(yay! ) but when i downloaded the graphics were pretty bad for my standards...
Anyway i decided to look into in and i messed a bit with the games files...
The results i got were sweet!

Features:

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)

New in V2!
Fully blown out graphics!
All details maxed out!
-Enabled High quality car shader
-Lod back to highest value
-Gamma luminance enabled
-Dynamic reflection optimized
-Car reflection in garage enabled

This looks ULTRA SWEET!
Instructions are the same for sammy version,for paid version i need help!


Installation:

Download the attached file,extract it and and paste it in
sdcard/Android/data/com.gameloft.android.SAMSUNG.GloftA7SS/files


Looks like it won't work with the paid version of asphalt 7!
Although you can download the sammy one for free if you want.

Update:There's WIP!When we figure it out full instructions will be given!

Update!Full credits goes to tolis626!
Great guy!

So guys,after some dirty copy-paste-work and random number changing(Numbers that don't concern us,don't worry )
I think I managed to get this to work.
Well,it did download something again,but I kinda think it works.
Maybe it's just me though...Can you guys test this?
Method is the same 7zip stuff I posted earlier.

How to:
Download the DeviceConfigPaid.zip extract it and use the instructions below!
Remember,it's still a WIP so we need feedback guys!

I opened the main.xxx.obb(Don't remember the name ) with 7zip,went to /data/DeviceConfig in there and copied your file over the previous one.

Then simply renamed .tar to .obb and copied back onto SGS3.
Initial play seems okay, but im at work so will give full report later.
No lag @ 1.6Ghz/700mhz GPU.

Final Notes
1)This will work 100% and DOES NOT HAVE ANY RISK(s)...
If run into any problem,just delete the file and the game will re-download the previous one in seconds!

2)I'm not sure if the ones that bought it have the game installed in that directory!
If you do,you're most likely in luck fellas!
If you don't,i can't do anything sorry....

3)Seems like it doesn't work on jellybean...:/
Sorry guys,i'm using LH3 ics rom...it should have theoreticaly worked with jelly bean....anyway,try it you may be lucky!
There's no risk..

4)Do you think we should spread the word??
Press submit thread as news tip so we can give help to more users!

I want ANYONE to post me their device's original DeviceConfig.xml and tell me from which device is this file!
When you post i'll have the version ready for that device,i found the issue that caused the download 1mb update and made the file working!
But in order to fix it,i'll need your ORIGINAL file!
By the way i also need an xml of the paid S3 version so i can make this work also.
Thank you guys.

EDIT:Added Galaxy S3 version V2 with even better graphics while maintaining great performance.
I need feedback on this one!
For now it only works on sammy version but as soon as someone with the paid version posts me his xml i'll make it work for the paid one as well...
P.S. The universal version will be based on the V2 not on the old one,don't worry...


For anyone else wondering how/where can you get the game for free the link is right here!
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1872844

P.S.
1)I've made some screenshots but there's not much difference there!you'll notice the difference when you play,not in static images...

2)This WILL NOT WORK ON OTHER DEVICES...yet!
I you want it to ask me and i'll try to make it work for that device....
(and you can be a tester... )
I'll start a universal version soon so stay tuned!

3)I am not responsible for anything that happens if you mess up,delete data,cause a nuclear war,or have kittens assault you and anything else!


Happy Gaming everyone!

Easy tiger, why would i search the forum for that? I just got home from work and checked the forum and saw your post, obviously the first thing i checked was the Samsung Apps store. If you had linked to a different post in the OP detailing the info regarding where to look on S Apps then yes shame on me for not looking at it. Anyway thanks for the info and the mod.

I also was about to delete the game as graphics and accelerometer controls are awful. This has made the game much smoother and looks really nice. Controls suck but that's not your fault. Thank you :thumbup:
