How to Boost FPS in Outriders - Best Graphics and Video Card Settings, Lag and Frame Rate Issues Fixes


How to Boost FPS in Outriders - Best Graphics and Video Card Settings, Lag and Frame Rate Issues Fixes

The release took place the other day Outriders is one of the most anticipated shooters this spring. Despite the rather smooth gameplay of the demo, presented some time ago, the full-fledged project turned out to be far from ideal from the technical side. Many players see server connection problems, noticeable drop in frame rates, visual bugs and many other small bugs that prevent them from fully enjoying the product. In this article, we will talk about several ways to optimize the game that will increase the FPS in Outriders.

Force start DirectX 11

Problems with frame drops may be related to incorrect automatic launch of the game, due to which the game does not work quite correctly in collaboration with DirectX. To force the launch of DirectX, you must use the command line on Steam:

  1. Launch Steam and go to the game library.
  2. Find Outriders in the list and right-click on the game.
  3. We select the item "Properties" and go to the section "General".
  4. In the line "Launch parameters" enter "-force -dx11" without quotes.

Setting up the video card

While the developers are fixing system errors in the interaction of the game code with video cards, it is recommended to temporarily change some parameters to improve performance:

  1. Disable Ansel.
  2. Disable DLSS.
  3. Turn off vertical sync (Vsync) in the game settings.
  4. Disable FPS Limite in the game settings.

Also note that frame rate drops can occur when visiting new areas and encountering previously uncharted enemies. When you next visit the locations, the FPS does not decrease.

Controller problem

Some players experience a noticeable drop in frame rate when connecting controllers. Most controllers are not properly supported at this time. To fix the error, you need to do a few things:

  1. Open the Steam settings and go to the "Controller" section.
  2. Press the button "Basic controller settings" and uncheck all the boxes.
  3. Restart Steam and go into the game.

These actions should improve the performance of Outriders. If this does not happen, then it is recommended to turn off the device until the developers fix the errors and optimize the controllers.

Graphics settings

Correct in-game settings will help to increase the frame rate on the PC version of the game. It is possible to unscrew all the items down to the Low option, but it is recommended that you select the options below. This will allow you to achieve the best picture at a sufficient frame rate for a comfortable game.

Graphic arts:

  • Display mode - Full screen;
  • Resolution - 1920 × 1080;
  • Resolution scaling - 100;
  • Vertical sync - Off;
  • Frame rate limiting - Off;
  • Viewing angle - 85;
  • Motion Blur - Off (consoles only).
Graphics (Optional):

  • Effects Quality - Low;
  • Texture quality - Medium;
  • Shadow Quality - Medium;
  • Anti-Aliasing - High;
  • Post-processing quality - Low;
  • The quality of objects at a distance is Average;
  • Vegetation Quality - Medium.

How to turn off motion blur on PC

We pass along the path:

C: \ Users \ (Username) \ AppData \ Local \ Madness \ Saved \ Config \ WindowsNoEditor

Find the Engine.ini and Gameusersettings.ini files and open them with notepad. At the bottom of the code for both files, add the following lines and save the documents:

r.MotionblurQuality = 0 // disables motion blur
r.SceneColorFringeQuality = 0 // disables chromatic aberration
r.DepthOfFieldQuality = 0 // completely disables depth of field
r.FastBlurThreshold = 0 // gets rid of blur
r.BlurGBuffer = 0 / / gets rid of blur

Task Manager

To improve the performance of your PC game, you need to prioritize the application over other programs running in the background. To do this, you will need to perform several sequential steps:

  1. Right-click on the taskbar and open the "Task Manager".
  2. Go to the "Details" section and right-click on "Outriders.exe".
  3. Hover the mouse over the "Set priority" column and select "High".
  4. In the window that appears, select "Change priority" to complete the operation.

Xbox Game Bar

Certain default Windows 10 settings can reduce overall system performance while gaming. We carry out several consecutive steps to reduce the load on the system by disabling the Xbox Game Bar:

  1. Find the Xbox Game Bar application in the taskbar search and open it.
  2. Go to the settings by clicking on the gear at the top of the screen.
  3. Move to the section "Creating clips and snapshots" and uncheck the box "Record in the background during the game".
  4. Close the Xbox Game Bar and go to Windows settings.
  5. Open the "Games" section and turn off the Xbox Game Bar in the window that appears.

Windows 10 graphics settings

In Windows 10, power users can tune the graphics performance themselves. To do this, you need to perform a few simple operations:
  1. In the search on the taskbar, we find "Graphics Settings" and open them.
  2. In the "Graphics Performance Settings" section, use the "Add" button and find the executable file in the Outriders folder.
  3. After adding the program, click "Options" and select "High performance".

It is also recommended that you enable the "Scheduling hardware accelerated GPU" checkbox. You will have to restart your computer to apply the action.

Nvidia Control Panel

Open the application and set up some parameters:

  • Power management mode - Maximum performance mode preferred;
  • Texture filtering (anisotropic optimization) - On;
  • Filtering textures (quality) - Performance;
  • Texture filtering (trilinear) - On;
  • Streaming Optimization - On;
  • Vertical sync pulse - Fast.
