right !
- 3rd of March 2016 - Added better transition timings when Aiming and not Aiming in d3dx.ini
- 3rd of March 2016 - Added ability to disable SOME of the PureHair Animations to FIX SLI BUG. This might also be useful for other people as it seems to increase performance by a bit!

- 7th of March 2016 - Updated to 3DMigoto 1.2.34 which allowed the fix to come with pre-backed shaders. The ASM source code is still available in "" file. This will dramatically improve shader loading!
