Field of view (FOV)

Quick FOV adjustment with hotkeys in real time.
Use Universal Unreal Engine 4 Console Unlocker[12]
  1. Use the Universal Unreal Engine 4 Console Unlocker to access the developer console of the game.
  2. Enter FOV X where X is the desired value.

Enable low settings

Enable low settings[13]
  1. Go to the video settings and change any of the settings so that Graphics Quality is changed to Custom.
  2. Select Graphics Quality and while it is set to Custom press Esc (or B / Circle if using a controller). If done correctly, the value of Graphics Quality and all other settings should change to Low (or Off in the case of Anti-aliasing).
  3. Change one of the individual settings to another value, such as Medium. This is necessary to allow the values on the other settings to take effect, as otherwise the game will still use their previous value.
  4. The easiest way of confirming whether the values have been applied correctly is to either check for either of the following:
    • Anti-aliasing Off results in noticeable aliasing in the game world.
    • Shadow Quality Low results in blocky character shadows in the game world, and the presence of dark eyes on the character in the Abilities and Customization menu screens.

Notes

If Graphics Quality gets changed again the process must be repeated.

Permanent INI changes

Making permanent graphics changes using INI files
  1. Permanent INI changes can be made using Drogean's Custom INI kit.

This lets you create a "mod" for the game that reads a custom engine .ini file you can put ANY console/config tweak into and have it read by the game in just a few clicks. Outside of using the Ue4 console enabler and inputting your commands on every startup, this is the only way to make them permanant Read Me included

Disable anti-aliasing

Edit GameUserSettings.ini[citation needed]
  1. Go to %LOCALAPPDATA%\SwGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\
  2. Open GameUserSettings.ini with Notepad.
  3. Find sg.AntiAliasingQuality=3 at the very bottom under "ScalabilityGroups" and change it to 0.
You can also change the in game setting. Available options are 3 (Epic), 2, 1 and 0 (Disabled).

Disable depth of field

Use Universal Unreal Engine 4 Console Unlocker
  1. Use the Universal Unreal Engine 4 Console Unlocker to access the developer console of the game.
  2. Enter r.DepthOfFieldQuality 0.

Issues unresolved

Corrupt save game

Users have reported issues where the save game can become corrupt if something affects the save process of the game, resulting in non-working saves and lost progress.[17]
Possible fix: Restore the backup save game[citation needed]
  1. Navigate to Save game data location.
  2. Create a copy of the whole save folder on another location so a backup is available.
  3. Rename or delete SaveGame00.sav
  4. Rename Backup00.sav to SaveGame00.sav
  5. Run the game and see if the backup save can be read.

Notes

  1. Unreal Engine 4 engine build: 4.21.2.0[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/1172380/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (1172380) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
