Supercharge Your Infinity Blade Graphics Even On Older Devices [Jailbreak]

maxresdefault

There’s a reason that Apple usually invites Epic Games on stage. The developers’ mobile-only series, Infinity Blade and its sequels, shows off the gaming potential of any new iOS device by pushing its graphical potential to the very limits.

Infinity Blade games look beautiful no matter what device you run them on, but there’s a big difference graphically between playing Infinity Blade III on an iPad 2 and an iPad Air. If you happen to have a jailbroken device, though, a new jailbreak tweak will trick Infinity Blade into running at a higher graphical setting… apparently with little degradation of performance.

The jailbreak tweak is called IB Graphics Selector, and it adds a preference pane to ‘Settings’ that allows you to enable the tweak, overriding the game’s auto-detection method and allowing you to choose which device Infinity Blade thinks it is running on.

In IB Graphics Selector, there are graphic presets for default, iPhone 3GS, A4, A4 iPad, A5, A5 iPad (iPad mini), A5X iPad (iPad 3), A6, A6X iPad (iPad 4), A7, and A7 iPad. And encouraging to the tweak’s author, even if you have an A5 device, you can push the graphics up to A7 and still run the game at 60+ frames per second.

Of course, all of this requires you to have a jailbroken device running iOS 6.1.3 or lower, but if you happen to have a device like that and want to supercharge your Infinity Blade dueling, you can grab the tweak now from BigBoss repo.

    “even if you have an A5 device, you can push the graphics up to A7 and still run the game at 60+ frames per second.”

    How’s that even possible? Then why do all developers of intensive games limit the graphics of, say, the iPhone 5 to about the same level? I’ve never seen IB3 graphics as seen on the iPhone 5s run on an iPhone 5 or lower, for the obvious reason that it can’t handle such graphics at 30+ fps.
