XML Tweaks for better performance

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this has been posted here yet, but i just found it on the ubi forums and it works like a charm. Drako did some research into the xml files and found some useful tweaks.


256mb 7800GTX

2.8ghz dual core

2gb Ram

I have it running with medium textures at 1680 x 1050 with shadows off and it's not jerky at all.

Hope this helps some people. Maybe the link should be added to the solutions sticky?

my game play is not jerky, but even turning the whole "texture managed" section to false yields no FPS boost to me.

<variable name="texture_managed_backdrop" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_buildings" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_buildings_low" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_characters" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_default" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_effects" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_ground" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_lightmaps" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_no_lod" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_plants" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_player_vehicles" value="true"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_props" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_props_bump" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_props_high" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_silhouettes" value="false"/>

<variable name="texture_managed_sky" value="false"/>

Try setting the whole section to true. I made of copy of the XML file first. I have the same video card as the other threads author so i just copy and pasted what he had on the forums. Setting them to true tells graw to use your computers physical memory as a buffer and not just what you have on your video card. Setting the whole section to false tells it not to so it probably wouldn't give you a performance boost.

Thats what I did. First I set all 'managed' values to FALSE and did some testing. And then I set them all to TRUE and did the same tests. Sorry to say - no difference.

Not saying that no-one might experience a difference depending on HW setup.
