There's a method to change the graphics quality in REAL RACING 3 which needs you to change the files in the data folder of real racing depending on your current graphics config... but for that you need to identify what are the current configs...

But in this method you will just need to know which settings you want..... the configs are

Quote:

AndroidLow.plist (blurry textures, no real-time reflections only shadows from bridges, car has blob shadow)
AndroidMid.plist (normal textures, no real-time reflections only shadows from bridges, car has real-time shadow)
AndroidHigh.plist (normal textures, real-time reflections of environment and bridges, car has real-time shadow)
AndroidXtraHigh.plist (no difference to AndroidHigh.plist)

Just decide the config you require based on the above description....

The default path to the configs is "/sdcard/Android/data/com.ea..games.r3_row/.depot/eds/" if you dont see .depot dir then check your settings for show hidden folder......


1) Make backup of all the files...
2) now if you want Highest config i.e. AndroidXtraHigh for you then
3) delete all the files from the default directory (of course after making back up)
4) then from the backup, copy the AndroidXtraHigh.plist to the default directory and rename it to AndroidLow.plist
5) then again from the backup, copy the AndroidXtraHigh.plist to the default directory and rename it to AndroidMid.plist
6) then again from the backup, copy the AndroidXtraHigh.plist to the default directory and rename it to AndroidHigh.plist
7) then again from the backup, copy the AndroidXtraHigh.plist to the default directory and do not rename it....

Same way you can do with other configs also.....

so what we will have in the default directory is the same XtraHigh config files but with different names.... So whichever file the game loads by default we will get the XtraHigh config......

Go and Enjoy RR3...
Worked great for me......

Tries this little "mod" on my Galaxy Note 8.0 and it bumped the gfx up quite a bit with renaming XtraHigh to all the other names.

I thought that the Note 8.0 with its quite impressive hardware would use High already but it seems it didnt

I'm Using An AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 "i747" & The game just will not run in Any higher quality in that RR3 Graphic's app, So i figured i'd ask here & try to do this manually, Why does my GS2 "i727" Skyrocket, Run this game better than the GS3 "i747"?
On My Skyrocket, the graphic's run in high with mirror reflection's, but on my GS3 I cannot for the life of me get the game Running With High Or Even Medium 2 Graphic's Setting's!

& I Know it can handle it, it work's but then it crashes when i go to repair a car, or even view a car. than sometime's it load's, so i'm not sure what's causing the crashing, but it crashes a lot on the GS3. What's the best way for me to get Reflection in the Mirror's But keep the Other Graphic Level's down a bit? is there a way to fine tune which graphic area's are high & low in the Plist File's?

I Really want to get back to progressing in RR3, As i'v gotten pretty far already, just got the Mclaren MP4-12C, It was a Gold Only Car & 20% Off so i figured id just get it. Is there anyway to Unlock ALL? Like an Offline sort of cheat? which i still want to use my save file to progress & really play the game through, but i'd really like to test drive a few of those race car's i won't get anytime soon. The Veneno Cost's 900 Gold & It's A Gold Only Car. R$ Can't buy the car, So it cost's 100$ to add 1,000 Gold, & This car cost's 900 Gold, Yikes... It's Basically A 100$ Car, they definitely should of thought over those prices for those new car's, it's really hard for a new player to get into this game, especially when i started playing on the GS2 Skyrocket With High Graphic's & No Crashing, Now i got a GS3 & the game doesn't even run in Medium?

Something's very oddly wrong with this GS3. Also Google Play Store, I'v Bought Asphalt 8, & Now Google Play keep's saying Update Game, & When i go to Update The Game, It Say's It's Unsupported? Yet i bought that exact game ON this GS3! & It worked before, now i can't even load the game cause it just say's update, & i can't get the update, cause it's unsupported now? I want to Root My GS3, But i'm being very careful with it, I Rooted My GS2 Skyrocket "Android 4.4.1", Which maybe why it run's in full high graphic's. & the GS3 is "Stock" "Android 4.3."

I Just don't understand why i can't get this one game running on the GS3? Anybody have any idea's? or is there any other RR3 Graphic App's that are good i can test out? I Have to deal with my GS3 for Awhile till i can upgrade, which will be awhile. so it seem's right now at this point i can play maybe 1 race, & then Crash & Force Close. & Sometime's the Crash Is BAD! I'll Finish 4 Lap's To Find Out It Didn't Save. I Just can't take the crashing anymore, but still want to keep playing this game as it's grown on me as something i do a few races a day. but now i really can't sense i switched to a GS3.

I Can Probably record a video Of RR3 Running In High Graphic's, But The GS3 Cannot Handle High Graphic's?
It Act's like it want's to but just crashes & i have no clue where to begin to get it to stop crashing like that. i cleared the Plist & re-installed, It was working on Medium High for 1 day till i restarted my phone, & i had Mirror Reflection's, & they just disappeared & now there smudgy/blurry again. so I'm 100% the game can run in High. But it just won't, Maybe Rooting it will fix the issue? i still never touched it after stock cause of all the new security app's like KNOX, & all those other background program's that make it harder to root the phone. so i'm taking it slow with rooting it.
