Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Use MEC Cinematic Tools[citation needed]
Instructions[3]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>.
  2. Create a new file named user.cfg.
  3. Open the file with your text editor of choice.
  4. Write Render.ForceFov # where # is your prefered fov.
  5. Save your changes.

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

On higher end machines it's possible to use resolution scaling for downsampling up to two times the dimensions of selected resolution. Post processing antialiasing is applied before downsampling is done.
Antialiasing is controlled by overall quality presets, and post-processing antialiasing is applied with every preset excluding Low.
Disable antialiasing on custom preset[citation needed]
  1. Set in game preset to Custom.
  2. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  3. Open PROF_SAVE_profile with preferred text editor.
  4. Change GstRender.AntiAliasingDeferred and GstRender.AntiAliasingPost to 0.
  5. Start the game.

Notes

GstRender.AntiAliasingDeferred does not seem to have any effect.
If the game crashes after this change, change the reflection details to low with (GstRender.ReflectionQuality 0).[4]

Issues fixed[edit]

Blurry visuals and textures[edit]

By default, if the game tries to utilize more VRAM than is available, it will automatically decrease the quality of game assets, including textures and shadows.
Disable GPU memory restriction in graphics settings[citation needed]

Notes

Make sure your machine is withing requirements before doing this as especially low amount of VRAM may introduce other problems including stuttering.
In-game post-processing antialiasing also blurs visuals. See Anti-aliasing (AA).

Stuttering[edit]

This fix resolves stuttering at regular intervals, unconfirmed if it fixes other stuttering.
Enable GPU memory restriction in graphics settings.
Set Origin to offline mode[7]
Change refresh rate[citation needed]
  1. Set your monitors refresh rate at 60hz.[citation needed]
  2. Set in-game fullscreen option to windowed.
  3. Try setting GameTime.MaxVariableFPS to 60 or 30
Move save files to SSD[citation needed]
  • If your game is on a SSD but the save files are present on a HDD, it will cause stuttering and CPU/GPU spikes every 5 seconds or so. Move your save files to the SSD or create a symbolic link.

Black screen on launch[edit]

Disable the Teamviewer QuickConnect plugin[citation needed]
  1. Open Teamviewer, select "Extra" then "Options". Go to the "Advanced" tab and select "Show advanced options.
  2. Under "Advanced settings for Computers and Contacts" click "Configure" and untick "Show QuickConnect button".

Notes

This can also be done by opening an explorer window, clicking on the QuickConnect icon, and selecting disable in the bottom right corner.
