So the AO shadows showing via partitions bugged me, attempted solving it by way of disabling it fully with Cheat Engine however unfortunately turns out not one of the alternative AO shaders paintings that neatly with NA.
Taking a look at it some extra it appeared like the shadows had been showing on account of LODs being loaded in, spent an hour or three digging round and sooner or later discovered the code chargeable for putting in the LOD distances, and after that it wasn’t too onerous to make a snappy DLL to hook that code and disable them.
With this it kind of feels all of the unsightly close-up LODs can now be disabled (even delicate LODs like grills disappearing from automobiles!), and AO-through-walls most commonly appears to be mounted with it too.
There may be nonetheless some far-distance LODs that glance kinda nasty till you cross up shut, however the ones don’t seem to be too demanding IMO, the shut ones that AO had issues of must be mounted a minimum of.
