Editing my .ini file for better FPS

#1GreAsyG2003Posted 12/29/2011 10:39:30 PM
Have a quick question,

What is 'D3DFullScreen' and would it be best to have it set as true or false when trying to get better FPS?

Also, any other edits to the .ini file that I should make to get the best FPS out of the game?

Search box. Type ini. Press enter. Read the swtor .ini tweak topic, and it links to another topic with some really detailed information on it.

Why can't you just change the settings in the game itself?? Turn everything to Low.

I know what thread you are talking about and correct me if I am wrong, but that thread is more tailored to getting better graphics for the players with high end machines, not better FPS for lower end machines. Also, I didn't see anywhere where they described what D3DFullScreen is. Again, correct me if I am wrong.

More things to tweak in the .ini file.

let me bump this

I had asked a similar question both in a separate topic and in the other topic as well and never got a response.

I would also like to know exactly how low I can set the settings in order to improve performance for my laptop.

so far all i know is that you should be able to reduce the ammount of dynamic lights in the game resulting in better fps.I have not tried this tweak yet to confirm if it works,so let us all know.

Well I just changed the settings in game and there isn't anything in the .ini file that hasn't changed at all. So just change the settings in the game...
