  2. Open Engine.ini in a text editor (if it does not exist, create it).
  3. Add the following lines:

Issues fixed

Low GPU Usage caused by CPU bottlenecking on certain PC configurations

Fix low GPU usage by using DirectX 12 rather than DirectX 11
Disables the ability to use the shader compilation fix

Alleviate or eliminate shader compilation stutter

Force enable shader preloading[citation needed]
Massively improves framepacing during gameplay and alleviates most stutters caused by shader compilation.
Does not work with the DirectX 12 version of the game. Also does not work on current AMD RDNA2 systems due to the driver not caching the shaders properly. Can exacerbate stuttering during level loading screens as the CPU is utilized on all cores to 100%. The shader cache has to be compiled again once a display driver has been uninstalled or updated due to the display driver's shader cache being deleted/reset in the update/uninstall process.
  1. Go to %LOCALAPPDATA%\ReadyOrNot\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\
  2. Open Engine.ini in a text editor.
  3. Add the following text as a new paragraph at the bottom and then save the file.
