Issues fixed[edit]

Frame rate drops/stuttering[edit]

Disable texture streaming in 'graphicsettings.lsx'[4]
This setting potentially uses more VRAM. Revert changes if crashes occur.
  1. Open %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Larian Studios\Divinity Original Sin\graphicsettings.lsx with Notepad.
  2. Find the following section:
    <node id="ConfigEntry">
    <attribute id="MapKey" value="TextureStreamingEnabled" type="22" />
    <attribute id="Type" value="0" type="5" />
    <attribute id="Value" value="1" type="4" />
    </node>
  3. Change value="1" to value="0"

Dedicated graphics card not detected on a laptop[edit]

The game doesn't recognize the graphics card and only runs with an onboard chip.
Might only work for NVIDIA cards.[5]
Disable Secure Boot Device in BIOS[6]
  1. Restart the laptop and enter your BIOS
  2. Search for the option Secure Boot Device and disable it
  3. Save your settings and restart
  4. Divinity should now be able to detect the graphics card
