    INI performance & graphics tweaks here

    If you are not satisfied with your game's performance, or all the excessive blur/bloom effects etc, try some of these tweaks. You can find the ini in:

    My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3 Demo\UTGame\Config\UTEngine.ini

    DO NOT CUT AND PASTE OVER THE ENTIRE SECTION! I have merely included a few of the settings for you to compare to your own.

    [SystemSettings]
    MotionBlur=False <-cuts out unnecessary blur fx
    DepthOfField=False <-same
    Bloom=True
    QualityBloom=False <-unsure, but probably helps
    Trilinear=False <-improves FPS

    Colors will appear more vibrant and the game will feel more like previous UT's. Excessive FX are just unnecessary and I think it's a shame that people have to dig in the ini's just to disable them to get the game to look how they expect.

    Make your ini read only after applying these settings.



    Curious what the settings below do:

    AllowD3D10=False <-I set this, not sure if it actually affects anything in XP
    DetailMode=2 <-very curious what this is

    Also, from one of the stickies, this helps hitches on Nvidia 6 and 7 series cards (just want to make all ini tweaks easy to find in one thread):

    [Engine.ISVHacks]
    UseMinimalNVIDIADriverShaderOptimization=False.

    Change that line to

    UseMinimalNVIDIADriverShaderOptimization=True

    Why Bloom=true? Doesnt that enable light bloom (which eats FPS)?

    StaticDecals=False
    DynamicDecals=False
    DynamicLights=False
    DynamicShadows=False
    LightEnvironmentShadows=False


    Distortion=False
    DropParticleDistortion=False
    SpeedTreeLeaves=False
    SpeedTreeFronds=False
    OnlyStreamInTextures=False
    LensFlares=False
    FogVolumes=False
    FloatingPointRenderTargets=True
    Trilinear=False

    You can turn bloom off completely if you want, I don't know how much FPS it "eats" so I left it alone. Made a negligable difference for me.

    You checked in My Documents, not in the UT3 demo subfolders?

    Why don't you explain why each one of these would be useful instead of just listing every setting as set to False? I'd prefer to stick to important things only, I bet you don't even know what many of those things do or how they effect performance. For instance why is disabling streamed in textures better?

    the typical turn off anything that will give a drip of FPS... XD

    Thank for your guild.. Bersy... especially the Nvidia one...
