Essential improvements

EDFix

EDFix increases the internal resolution for better image quality (and also allows for manually adjusting it). Without EDFix, the game defaults to 83.33% resolution scaling.
Install EDFix
  1. Download the latest version of EDFix or the mirrored version.
  2. Extract the contents of the ".zip" file to <path-to-game>\EDFIR\Binaries\Win64\

Notes

Allows to set a custom FOV, FPS cap, resolution scale, motion blur setting, and anisotropic filtering setting inside of the config.ini that can be found in the plugins folder.
