Metro2033 recommended settings

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just built my sig rig and coming back to PC gaming after an 16 year absence in console land.

So far i'm enjoying the experience and able to set everything at maximum settings.

However from what i've heard Metro2033 would be a different case and I would have to scale things back a bit. Now i've tried several levels of settings and to be honest I cant tell a frame rate difference between them at 1680 x 1050 @60Hz.
Everything looks gorgeous but i'm I missing some hidden display option here?

Or going from consoles have I just accepted low frame rates?

In DX11 options, you can select DOF, High PhysX etc. Disable Vsync you will see the difference.

I've got all those switched on at the mo.
I'll try turning VSync off but I really hate screen tear!

So there's no hidden "enthusiast" settings that involve editing pref files etc?

No, none that I know of. All the settings are in game no hidden as other games. Should try it on higher resolution. At your resolution is pretty easy for your GTX580.

Well that's the top res for my monitor so this is as far as I can go.
Not complaining, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on anything.

Glad I didn't go for a 580sli now though

well if you really want to test your system there are extra options in the config file, i will warn you tho i have tried some on the tweaks recommended and my fps has dropped dramatically, i have switched them back to defaults and i still have the problem so i may need to re-install lol.
but some stuff the may help like you can set the fov to 60 instead of 45 which gives a better view

but unless you have 2 cards in sli i really recommend leaving other stuff alone especially gi options (caused my problem)

I played with the .cfg editing but leave me no choice but to re-install the game. I couldn't reverse whatever I edited, it changed some other settings that I don't know of.
