Asphalt 7 Retina Mod

I was bored of the bad graphics of asphalt 7 on the new ipad so i decided to mod it a bit. Here's a changelog:

- improved drawdistance
- removed those annoying nitro trails
- removed 30 fps cap
- fixed tire skidmarks so the don't disappear too early
- improved resolution (retina ipad)
- removed msaa (no optical effect but better performance)
- removed black and white effect
- activated blur when crashing other cars

PLEASE NOTE!
The performance is not as good as the stock game!
But still perfectly playable!

The resolution is not fully retina cuz it'd be a diashow but i dramatically improved the visuals of the game and the resolution is dramatically better than the stock one.

HowTo:
Download the DeviceConfig.xml
Replace the .xml with the existing one in the asphalt7 folder.
(you need a iphone browser tool for mac or windows!)
(i don't know if you need a jailbreak, haven't tried it without.)

Replace this file with the existing one:

Anyone got any info on A7's retina update? I heard rumours they were working on one, but does anybody know anything about it?

Yep on the new ipad it looks all blurry and jaggy.
Since its a free game with an IAP system Im pretty sure they will release an update soon though.
Only games for which people payed the full price never get updated by Gameloft since we already paid for it and they don't need to keep us satisfied...(Backstab, Rainbow six, Dungeon Hunters 2, Settlers, 9MM etc etc)

Download coming soon!
It shouldn't need a jailbreak. I've modified GTA3 without JB, and seen others modify other games (like Swordigo) without JB as well.
