Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a singleplayer first-person action-RPG sandbox developed by Warhorse Studios, and published by Deep Silver[Note 1].

The game was released on February 13, 2018, with an extensive day-one patch that required replacing almost all of the original game files.[2]

Multiple DLC have been released since the game's launch, including the addition of modding support. A "Royal Edition" which includes the base game and all DLC was released in June 2019.[3]

Limiting the framerate with external tools (e.g. MSI Afterburner) will slow down fast travel on the world map as during this loading process the framerate is normally uncapped.[7]

Field of view (FOV)

Set FOV in console[8]
  1. Open the console (~).
  2. Enter cl_fov XX (replace XX with the FOV you want).
  3. Press Enter.


This can alternatively be set in your user.cfg file.

High frame rate

Change the frame rate cap
  1. Open the console (~).
  2. Enter sys_MaxFPS XX (replace XX with the max FPS you want).
  3. Press Enter.


This can alternatively be set in your user.cfg file.

Global Illumination

Fix low quality global illumination[9]
  1. Edit <path-to-game>\user.cfg or create if it doesn't exist.
  2. Add
  1. Add to launch options: +exec user.cfg

Depth of field

Disable depth of field[10]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\Engine\.
  2. Open engine.pak with 7-Zip or similar. If you get a "read-only" error when trying to edit the file, use Total Commander.
  3. Open the config\cvargroups folder.
  4. Open sys_spec_PostProcessing.cfg.
  5. Change r_DepthOfFIeld=2 to r_DepthOfFIeld=0.

HUD Location Adjustment

Center or adjust the HUD regardless of resolution
  1. Navigate to the game install directory.
  2. Open HUD.xml, located within Data\GameData.pak\Libs\UI\UIElements. Use 7zip or similar to directly open pak files.
  3. Locate the "Constraints" tag, near the top, within the GFx tag.
  4. Replace the existing constraints section with the following, adjusted as needed. This is based on a monitor resolution of 3440x1440, and desired HUD resolution of 2560x1440 (centered 16:9):
       <Align mode="fixed"/>
       <Position top="0" left="440" width="2560" height="1440" />
  1. To center the hud: set "left=#" where # is your screen resolution subtracted by the desired HUD resolution then halved (e.g. (3440 - 2560)/2)
  2. Save the XML and drop it back into the pak file.


These changes will also need to be applied to any patch files containing HUD.xml,which can be found within Data\patch pak files.
This results in minor visual issues during dialogue (black bars are displayed, and grain-overlay does not fill screen).

Issues fixed

Cutscenes are capped at 30 FPS

FPS during some cutscenes are locked to 30. The cutscenes are in-engine, meaning they should go as high as your setup is set, or can render to.
Add a configuration file to unlock the FPS when in fullscreen mode[14]
  1. In-game, ensure the Fullscreen option is selected in the display settings.
  2. Exit the game.
  3. Make a new file called user.cfg in <path-to-game> and open it in a text editor.
  4. Add the following lines, where sys_MaxFPS is your maximum FPS, then save and close the file:
r_Vsync = 0
sys_MaxFPS = 144

5. Add the command +exec user.cfg to your desktop shortcut in the Target section.

Blurry textures

The game takes a long time to load texture mipmaps leading to blurry textures especially on characters.
Increase the game mipmap LOD value to prevent the game from constantly reloading the mipmaps from the disk[15]
  1. Open the in-game console with ~
  2. Type r_TexturesStreamingMipBias -3
  3. Press Enter, then close the console with ~.


This workaround might cause a 2-4 FPS loss.
You can also apply this fix by adding the above line to your user.cfg file, mentioned above.
The mipmaps of some roads textures are tied to the FOV.
Change the FOV to force crisp road textures[citation needed]
  1. Open the in-game console with ~
  2. Type cl_fov 90
  3. Press Enter, then close the console with ~.


This workaround can cause some roads textures to shimmer.
Changing the FOV to another value than 90 might cause even worse results.
The FOV change might no be desirable for some.
You can also apply this fix by adding the above line to your user.cfg file, mentioned above.

Constant freezes during gameplay

Download Battle Encoder Shirase[16][17]
  1. Run the program as admin
  2. Target the process “Kingdom Come” after launching the game, and set CPU to 1%.
Change Nvidia Control Panel Settings[18]
  1. Select “SLI and PhysX Configurations” (may just say PhysX for some of you)
  2. Select your GPU under the “PhysX Settings”

Memory allocation failed on 4GB RAM[19]

The error always appears in the 1st return to Skalitz - save the game before digging (otherwise you will repeat the whole rainy section). The error usually disappears after the game restart.

Performance issues[Note 4]

Use the optimizing tool or one of the linked in its description (depending on your specs)[20]
Set 60Hz refresh rate
Turn off G-Sync

    "Another thing, unfortunately Anisotropic Filtering is tied to texture level, despite 16x AF not being a demanding setting at all. With Textures set to High, the max AF level is just 4x - so no matter how good your (edit: I’m writing this for the general public, I know that your 1080ti can use Ultra textures) LOD and draw distance settings are, you will always get murky textures. It’s only at Textures set to Very High and Ultra does 16x AF kick in, making long distance viewing look much crisper (with appropriately high LOD settings)."

    "It’s a shame that AF is tied to the texture settings, and that the recommended GPU VRAM for a given texture setting isn’t specified, except it is in the game’s files. From sys_spec_TextureResolution.cfg

    * Texture set to Low is for 1 GB VRAM
    * Texture set to Medium is for 1.5 GB VRAM
    * Texture set to High is for 2 GB VRAM
    * Texture set to Very High is for 3 GB VRAM
    * Texture set to Ultra is for 6 GB VRAM

    Those correspond to the Texture CVARS 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7, respectively.
