Capped at 60 FPS; see High frame rate. CryEngine 3 may set your monitor's refresh rate to the lowest supported refresh rate; this results in stuttering and poor performance even if internal GPU render shows a high fps.[3] See Game chooses wrong refresh rate.

Field of view (FOV)[edit]

This game uses vertical FOV. See FOV Calculator for help.
Set FOV in system.cfg[4]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>
  2. Edit system.cfg
  3. Change cl_fov= and r_DrawNearFov= to the FOV you want.
  4. Save your changes and close the file.

High frame rate[edit]

Set FPS cap in console.cfg[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\Game2\_FastLoad\
  2. Open startup.pak, look in the Config folder, extract console.cfg.
  3. Open console.cfg and make a new line: sys_maxfps 144
  4. Save console.cfg, drag and drop it back in to the Config folder inside startup.pak.

Notes

Frame rate affects certain in-game mission timers; at high frame rates (above 100 fps or so) some side objectives may fail too quickly to be completed.
In-game V-sync option locks frame rate to 60 regardless of modifications to console.cfg or monitor refresh rate.

Screen effects[edit]

Disable screen effects[5]
  1. Open system.cfg <path-to-game>\system.cfg.
  2. Add a new line r_Flares=0
  3. Save the file.

Issues fixed[edit]

Game chooses wrong refresh rate[edit]

CryEngine 3 may set your monitor's refresh rate to the lowest supported refresh rate if the game is in fullscreen mode; this results in stuttering and poor performance even if internal GPU render shows a high fps.[3]
Override refresh rate set by game[7]
  1. Download 3Dmigoto.
  2. Copy the files in the x32 folder to the installation folder.
  3. Open d3dx.ini.
  4. Change ;refresh_rate=60 to the desired value, and remove the semicolon (e.g. refresh_rate=144).
  5. Change hunting=1 to ;hunting=1 by adding a semicolon.
  6. Save the changes and close the file.
Play the game in DirectX 9[7]
Disable fullscreen optimizations
  1. Navigate to the Bin32 folder from the game's root directory and locate EnemyFront.exe.
  2. Right click the exe file and choose Properties.
  3. Select the Compatibility tab, and check Disable fullscreen optimizations.
  4. Hit apply and the game will now run at your monitor's native refresh rate.

Notes

  1. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  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>/256190/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (256190) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
