Command Console[edit]

Enable Command Console
  1. Follow the guide to download and set up IGCSInjector
  2. Make sure that IGCSInjector and it's files are copied to "<path-to-game>\EDFIR\Binaries\Win64\"
  3. Open "IGCSInjector.ini", and change "Process=" to "Process=EDFIR-Win64-Shipping.exe"
  4. After the game launches, open "IGCSInjector.exe" to enable the command console.

Notes

The reason using the command console injector is required is because the game automatically overwrites INI files, and changes console variables that handle graphics/resolution settings on startup, when changing in-game settings, and when entering gameplay from the main menu. They also need to be re-entered every time the game is launched.

Anisotropic filtering (AF)[edit]

Change Render Percentage
  1. See Command Console to enable the Command Console.
  2. Press the "Tilde" key to open the command console
  3. Enter "r.MaxAnisotropy xx", replacing "xx" with your desired anisotropic filtering mode

Notes

r.MaxAnisotropy values include 1, 2, 4 (Default), 8, and 16.

Custom Resolution[edit]

Change In-Game Resolution
  1. See Command Console to enable the Command Console.
  2. Press the "Tilde" key to open the command console.
  3. Enter "r.SetRes 1920x1080", replacing "1920x1080" with your desired screen resolution

Notes

The game by default uses Vert- FOV Scaling, which requires adjusting the FOV when using a wider/narrower horizontal aspect ratio. See Field of View.

Field of View[edit]

Change Field of View
  1. See Command Console to enable the Command Console.
  2. Press the "Tilde" key to open the command console
  3. Enter "fov xx", replacing "xx" with your desired FOV.

High Frame rate[edit]

Change (or unlock) framerate cap
  1. See Command Console to enable the Command Console.
  2. Press the "Tilde" key to open the command console
  3. Enter "t.MaxFPS xx", replacing "xx" with your desired framerate cap.

Notes

"t.MaxFPS 0" doesn't disable the framerate cap. Use "t.MaxFPS 9999" if uncapping the framerate is desired.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/1039890/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (1039890) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
