Notes

Some sections of config file may not be present, until a specific gamemode is played for the first time.

Anisotropic filtering (AF)[edit]

Anisotropic filtering is changed along with streaming options, when player adjusts Texture Detail.

Texture Detail AF samples
1 Disabled
2 Disabled
3 4x
4 4x
5 16x

It is possible to manually change the Anisotropic filtering options.

Notes

Changing any graphical option will result in a game reverting the settings to original values.

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

There is an option for Multisampling in S9Engine.ini, but it does nothing. Instead use SMAA injector or force AA from graphics drivers panel.

Installing AA injector[citation needed]
  1. Download either SMAA injector.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\Binaries\Win32\ and paste the files here.
  3. Open injector.ini.
  4. Change weird_steam_hack = 0 to weird_steam_hack = 1.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/97100/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (97100) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
