Best settings to use for AC4:Black Flag?

#1Xa3r0xPosted 4/14/2014 7:52:53 PM
I have an i5 4670k OCed to 4.2 ghz, and GTX 770. Just wondering the best settings to use so I can always get 60fps. Also, do you guys prefer KB or Controller?

For AC games I always use controller because it's a third person game with little to no aiming.

Why don't you just try it yourself?

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

TC, ignore 2nd poster. The board was slightly better when he was recently banned. Shame wasn't permanent.

Ignore 3rd poster. Embarassing when the user goes to ps4 forum and attempts to gloat PC user, displaying an embarassment to PC users. Freaking farmer. Er peon/peasant, or whatever the pc elitist neckbears keep sprouting.

As for ACIV, the two most impact options of the fps I believe are the AA (Fxaa/mxaa/txaa) and shadows. Turn off soft shadows, and set to FXAA. Put physx to normal, and turn god rays to low. Everything else you can put high. You should get a stable 60 fps rate. Just experiment and use fraps to test fps when around cities.

Well in all seriousness it's not that hard to play around with settings and either benchmark with FRAPS or simply watch FPS. Then he goes on asking about keyboard vs. controller... something as simple as plugging in one yourself and seeing how it feels. I do so myself when I don't think a game is good for KB&M. (Mortal Kombat) etc. In addition, if he doesn't know what settings are most demanding for any game, then indeed. The peasant within.

Except AC4 is a garbage port so asking what setting work best is a valid question, since effects that normally shouldn't cripple the framerate, do cripple it in AC4.
