How Do I Force SLI in Resident Evil 5?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

The title is pretty self-explanatory. I was wondering how to use SLI in RE5. I heard that you could alter a file and then it would work. I tried this method and changed some file to "SLI = ON" and it didn't work. Could I get step by step instructions on how to remedy this situation? My sig rig is the computer that will be used and I am running RE5 from Steam. Thanks!

I'm not sure how to navigate to the config file anymore (I altered it some time ago). Would ya mind letting me know how to navigate there? Thanks!

I opened the file and it was already set to "ON". I re-saved it and launched the benchmark but only 1 card showed 98% usage. The other was practically at 0%. :/

Thanks! It's much appreciated. So this update will just allow RE5 to use SLI?

If you use the RE5 patch SLI works just fine. All I did is updated my game.
