Anisotropic filtering (AF)
Default singleplayer AF level is 4 samples. See Anisotropic filtering (AF).
Anti-aliasing (AA)
In game AA doesn't do anything. Nvidia users can follow this guide for better AA. Emulated 4K resolution via DSR provides the best results with the proper video cards and drivers. AMD users can use a combination of GeDoSaTo or VSR along with SMAA/FXAA.
Vertical sync (Vsync)
60 FPS and 120+ FPS

Field of view (FOV)[edit]

This game uses vertical FOV in multiplayer. See FOV Calculator for help.

Improving Visual Fidelity, Texture Quality[edit]

Improving Shadow Quality, Texture Streaming and Level of Detail[2]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open MOHAEngine.ini.
  3. Find all of the posted values and change them to match unless noted by the comment.
  4. CSMSizeScale=4.000000 -- WARNING, this massively increases VRAM usage; 3.000000 provides a good balance of quality and performance.

ShadowFilterRadius=1.000000 -- Higher values will cause some visual glitches, however this will not.
NumStreamedMips=0 -- Add this to the end of every "TEXTUREGROUP" this includes the comma!
PoolSize=320 -- This can be the size of your choosing
Do note that the ones below in all CAPS are actually DIFFERENT variables than the ones not in caps. They are specific to this game at the very end of "[SystemSettings]"
