Field of view (FOV)
Use 21xMachi9 to adjust the field of view.
Windowed
Borderless fullscreen windowed
Two options: "Windowed (Fullscreen)" and "Windowed (Borderless)". The "Windowed (Fullscreen)" setting works similarly to "Borderless", but will apply the game's resolution to an optimal setting that cannot be changed.
Anisotropic filtering (AF)
Changes with the texture quality setting. For manual adjustment force in GPU control panel or see Anisotropic filtering (AF).
Anti-aliasing (AA)
FXAA and TAA presets available.
Vertical sync (Vsync)
60 FPS and 120+ FPS
Choice between 30 FPS, 60 FPS, 120 FPS, 144 FPS, or 200 FPS. Use 21xMachi9 to raise the cap above 200 FPS, or to set custom targets.

Anisotropic filtering (AF)[edit]

Adjust AF samples[4]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Engine.ini.
  3. Add the following and save the file.
[SystemSettings]
r.MaxAnisotropy=16

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

Enable AA sharpening[4]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Engine.ini.
  3. Add the following and save the file.
[SystemSettings]
r.Tonemapper.Sharpen=1
This will sharpen the image to offset the blur caused by FXAA and TAA. A value between 0.5-1.0 is recommended, 10 is the maximum. It has no performance impact.
