Planetside 2 FPS tweaks
Posted 03 December 2012 - 05:59 PM
Well to start with a lil background, before these tweaks I would generally cap at 20-30 fps at the warpgate and it being capped by cpu, afterwards Im 50-70 fps capped by gpu.
First off, Back up your UserOptions.ini file. (mine was in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PlanetSide 2 yours may vary)
Nest you need to open the useroptions.ini with notepad and replace everything in the Rendering section with this:
then also find the terrain\render flora and change this to off.
Save this, then remember to right click and set to read only/apply ...set to go. (if you dont read only it, the game will just overwrite with the defaults.)
Mine still drops to 20ish in big fights, but thats better than the 5-10 it was before, and as an added bonus, theres also no more fog on Esamir!

Disable Aero Theme
-*Vista, W7, W8 only*-
- Go into your PlanetSide 2 directory (OR find your PS2 shortcut) and find PlanetSide2.exe
- Right click it, click the Compatibility tab.
- From there, Inside the "Settings" box, click "Disable Desktop Composition".
-*All Operating Systems*-
You can edit your UserOptions.ini to improve and get the most out of PlanetSide 2, by editing the UserOptions.
- Go inside your PlanetSide 2 directory
- Locate UserOptions.ini, inside it..
- Copy my settings below such as [Display], [Rendering], [Sound], and [Terrain] over your [Display], [Rendering], [Sound], and [Terrain].
What does this do? This will edit the UserOptions and strain it to get the most performance possible from editing it. This is a very important step to do if you want more performance.
Unlock your Processor Cores
-*All Operating Systems*-
The final step, and perhaps the most important step. Your cores are all parked by default as Windows set them, this holds your processor back from going to its maximum power, you will need to "unpark" them to get the most performance and get PlanetSide 2 running smooth.
Beware: Laptops may have overheating issues for some reason, Desktop PCs will stay the same temperature as they did before.
You will need to download a Core Unlocking program. This task can be done through REGEDIT/Windows registry, but this is more simple as the program does it for you.
- Download the software at: http://www.coderbag....ark-CPU-App.zip
- Extract the archive file into a folder anywhere.
- Open the software up.
- Click the button "Check Status". This will check the registry to find how many cores you have and if they are Unparked, or Parked.
- Once the processors show them up (Will most likely show an extra core for some reason) click on the button "Unpark All". This will Unpark your cores for maximum performance
You can check your Processors' performance by:
- Right-click on your Start-Bar, click "Task Manager" OR hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and click "Task Manager".
- Goto the "Performance" tab.
- Note: This screenshot below is my system running an i7-Extreme. Most systems do not have this many processors.
Razer's Gamebooster can help you close out bad processes that run in the background and even Tweak your computer for best performance!

There is one regedit you can do, that will display in the "Change advanced power settings". And you don't need to reboot to do this.
This route will make you edit your registry, use it at your own risk. There is one item that needs to be edited to unlock in the "Change advanced power settings". And if you do plan on using this. Back up your registry.

One in particular can fix latency issues and make your ping lower.
(It says for WoW but it's for all interweb programs.)
Use any of these at your own risk.

If you have a gpu and cpu capable of Ultra settings, then just copy and replace the respective parts in your usersettings.ini
[Display] FullscreenRefresh=0 Maximized=0 FullscreenWidth=1920 FullscreenHeight=1080 WindowedWidth=1024 WindowedHeight=768 RenderQuality=1.410000 Mode=WindowedFullscreen FullscreenMode=Windowed [Rendering] GraphicsQuality=5 TextureQuality=0 TerrainLOD=5 FloralDistanceScale=2.000000 ShadowQuality=5 RenderDistance=-1 Gamma=0.000000 MaximumFPS=120 UseLod0a=0 OverallQuality=-1 LightingQuality=5 EffectsQuality=5 TerrainQuality=5 FloraQuality=5 ModelQuality=5 MotionBlurQuality=5 BlurQuality=5 AOQuality=5 AmbientOcclusionQuality=5 ParticleQuality=5 VerticalFOV=74 FloralLOD=5 EffectsLOD=5 ParticleLOD=5 ParticleDistanceScale=2.000000 EffectsDistanceScale=2.000000 FogShadowsEnable=1 MotionBlur=1 VSync=0 AO=1 GpuPhysics=1
this will make the game look amazing, but it will tax your computer (esp the RenderQuality=1.41, you might have to tune that down to 1.20) 1.41 = 2x super-sampling, 1.20 = 1x
GpuPhysics is for Physx which is no longer avaliable (was in beta for a very short time tho, loooked amazing) leaving it set to 1 will have no impact on the game ATM* (it will return to the game at some point)
MotionBlur might give you motion sickness ;)
*IF* you think you have a bad-ass rig, then set RenderQuality=2.0 and watch as Planetside 2 makes your computer it's bitch (4x super-sampling)
I personally don't run this config, it's too much for my i5 3570k, perhaps if i had an i7 it could handle the shadows and particles
and as a Big super Tip, if you use this you will only be able to see 100m on esamir, setting ParticleLOD=0 will lower the fog to a respectable level
