Metro 2033 Config file screw up

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hey all,

i have a problem now that i have altered something in my config file :S
on a forum someone said to change the following options

r_gi from 0 to 1
and r_gi_quality from 0.4 (default) to 1

so i did this but experienced a huge drop in fps

so i set them back to default (on both config files both steam userdata and in my documents) yet i still have poor dps

before i changed it the game ran fine, smooth on maxed settings.

does anyone know why this option despite changing the config back is still causing my dps drop?

i checked the config files afterwards and they havent reverted back to higher settings they have stayed at default

Thanks in advance

Just back up your save files, and delete every thing related to metro 2033, Install folder to registry. And then try a fresh install
