For Hogwarts Legacy players who want to optimise game performance, this guide will show you how, let’s check it out.
Here’s a list of all optimizations I’ve found:
1. DISABLE FULLSCREEN OPTIMIZATIONS
Go to SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Hogwarts Legacy, right click .exe, properties, compatibility, disable full screen optimizations, save.
2. FORCE FULLSCREEN MODE
Paste %LOCALAPPDATA%\Hogwarts Legacy\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\ in windows explorer and open GameUserSettings.ini, then replace this
3. BEST DISPLAY & VIDEO SETTINGS
Window mode: Fullscreen
Select monitor: Your primary monitor
Rendering Resolution: 100%
Upscale Type: None
Anti Aliasing Mode: DLAA
Nvidia Low Reflex Latency: Off
Field of View: As per preference

Chromatic Aberration: On
Film Grain: On

Play around with replacing DLAA with DLSS according you your rig. I’m playing on a 6gig 2060m and it’s still visually appealing and at the limit of the input delay comfort range.
By doing step 2 alone, you can actually see that the game starts in full-screen mode and takes priority of the primary display.
Full-screen will be displayed as “” in display settings, as the game does not currently support it, probably because of DX12 compatibility issues.
