Video settings[edit]

Graphics option Option Notes
Widescreen resolution
Limited widescreen resolution support. Fullscreen mode supports various resolutions between 1280x720 and 1920x1200, but window mode is limited to either 1280x720 or 1920x1080. For 2560x1440 see the WSGF topic.
For 2560x1080 or 3440x1440, see the WSGF topic.
4K Ultra HD
While the game can't natively output at 4K, it does internally render the game at 4K if configured to 1920x1080 while using the "Highest" anti-aliasing option. The output can be forced to 4K by using Special K and its resolution limiting, window mode override, and borderless fullscreen implementation.
Field of view (FOV)
Window mode is limited to either 1280x720 or 1920x1080.
Borderless fullscreen windowed
The game actually never is truly in fullscreen mode, it's always in borderless fullscreen windowed.
Anisotropic filtering (AF)
Enabled by default but very low, can be overridden by GPU drivers.
Anti-aliasing (AA)
Normal (Temporal AA), High (Temporal AA + 2.25x SSAA) and Highest (Normals AA + 4x SSAA)[5]
Vertical sync (Vsync)
No option in launcher.
Some users are reporting that forcing Vsync doesn't work.[6] Others are having success forcing it[7]

Issues fixed[edit]

Audio in Cutscenes out of sync[edit]

Caused by refresh rates higher than 60Hz. Limiting the framerate to 30 FPS or your refresh rate to 60Hz resolves this issue[citation needed]

Game crashes after launching at "Fabula Nova Crystallis" splash screen[edit]

The cause of the issue is unknown - Square-Enix noted that they were investigating but have not updated the game since the first weeks after release.[1] A workaround involves launching the game on Steam through an alternate Windows user account. This circumvents the crash and allows the game to function[citation needed]

Black screen without sound during pre-rendered cutscenes[edit]

Re-/Installing the Media Feature Pack, Windows Media Player and/or Codec Packs like K-Lite Codec Pack or CCCP can resolve this problem[citation needed]
It is unknown what exactly fixes the black screen during FMV cutscenes as some people still report this problem.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Game crashes on Windows 10 v1809 October 2018 Update[edit]

On Windows 10 v1809 the game crashes whenever a cutscene tries to load, leaving the game unplayable.[3][4]
Workaround: Prevent cutscenes from playing by renaming the <path-to-game>\WIN\JP\movie folder, and use the Skip button when a black screen occurs in the game (where a cutscene would normally play).[8]

Crackling and popping of audio in FMVs[edit]

On some setups the audio of FMVs don't seem to play correctly. The audio has popping and crackling present akin to time stretched synchronous audio. Might be due to Sample Rate[6]
