Command line parameters[edit]

See command line arguments on how to use the following options.[1]
Parameter Description
-extendedmotionbluroff Will disable more of the motion blur effects when Motion Blur is turned off in the graphics menu.
-unlockaspectratio Removes the borders on the top/bottom or left/right of the screen in non-16:9 aspect ratios. Please note that Vanquish was originally designed to a 16:9 aspect ratio only, and as such, certain UI elements will be distorted with the lock disabled.
-fov 80 Use a number between 40-120 to change the field of view. The game was designed for an FOV of 80°, so errors may occur at other values.
-monitor 2
(or any number in a multi-monitor setup)
This will allow users to select which monitor to treat as the primary device, which will allow full screen exclusive to work on that display.
-audio 2
(or any number corresponding to an audio device)
Force the game to use the selected device rather than the default device (may help players with audio device issues).
-window This will force the game to boot into windowed mode (should help if the game is defaulting to an unsupported resolution).
–fulltone Players should try this if they're having issues with the brightness rapidly changing (may very slightly impact performance).
–fastvisor For players experiencing slowdown in the visor cutscenes, may improve frame rate in these sections.
