Create the file called

user.cfg

Add the following commands:

WorldRender.SpotLightShadowmapResolution 256
RenderDevice.TrippleBufferingEnable 0
RenderDevice.ForceRenderAheadLimit 0
Render.DrawFps 1
WorldRender.FxaaEnable 0
RenderDevice.Dx11Enable 0
Render.PerfOverlayEnable 0
PostProcess.DynamicAOEnable 0
Render.DeviceVSyncEnable 0
WorldRender.MotionBlurEnable 0
WorldRender.SpotLightShadowmapEnable 0
WorldRender.TransparencyShadowmapsEnable 0
WorldRender.DxDeferredCsPathEnable 0
WorldRender.FxaaEnable 0
RenderDevice.VSyncEnable 0
Gametime.MaxVariableFps 300

This should give you anywhere from 10-50 fps. I got 50 with my rig. A friend with a significantly less of a rig got 10. There are no visual differences.

Enjoy!

Does this count for multiplayer? I would rather not modify/add game files for my multiplayer games, just incase.

Cheers for the config SightUp.

I've only used the Disable triple bufferring command, but seems to make the game a bit smoother.

Do you know what the "WorldRender.DxDeferredCsPathEnable 0" actually did ?
I tried it and saw no difference to FPS or anything.
Read somewhere that people think its offloads work to the CPU or increases amount of VRAM usage... but didn't see that myself.

I see you removed it now due to "lock at 30" What do you mean by this ?

OP it's renderperfoverlay that's locking your FPS, not something else. The command you removed is the best one.. no visual changes yet boosts 30 fps? wth ^^

I've been gone the whole weekend so I don't know what optimizations people have come up with so far. Can someone confirm if these work since I can't test them atm
