If you play Madfinger’s Dead Trigger, but don’t own a Tegra 3 powered device, then you’re missing out. NVIDIA teamed up with Madfinger to bring better graphics for Tegra 3 chips, but unfortunately, that leaves some users longing for more in the aesthetics department. 

Don’t worry, the Android developer community is here to the rescue. If you own a rooted device, then you can make a simple edit to the game’s files which will allow for the better graphics playback.


  1. First of all, enable graphics details to high in setup/others.
  2. Exit game.
  3. Use root explorer like ES File Explorer.
  4. Go to /data/data/com.madfingergames.deadtrigger/shared_prefs/ folder.
  5. Edit com.madfingergames.deadtrigger.xml file.
  6. Change < int name=”UnityGraphicsQuality” value=”1″ /> to <int name=”UnityGraphicsQuality” value=”2″ / >.
  7. Change < int name=”OptionsGraphicDetail” value=”2″ /> to <int name=”OptionsGraphicDetail” value=”3″ / >.
  8. Save it.
  9. Modify permissions to remove all write permission on User, Group and Other.
  10. Delete com.madfingergames.deadtrigger.xml.bak.
