For Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt players, this guide will show you some setting to have a better performance, let’s check it out.
There is a ton you can do in windows to maximize performance, but we will stick to the basics.
Hit the windows key and type Power plan —
Here you will see Balanced, High Performance and Power Saving – Choose High Performance
Hit the windows key again and press the cogwheel on the left side.
Navigate to the Game section and turn off Xbox GameBar.
Game mode: This has been improved alot and will help low-mid tier pc’s
Hit the windows key and type Graphics and open the graphic settings tab.
If you are struggling with 100% CPU usage or have a low-mid tier pc enable the gpu acceleration.
Below that you can browse and locate Bloodhunt – SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Bloodhunt\Tiger\Binaries\Win64
Once you have done that you will be able to choose “High performance”
Hit the windows key and type Device Manager.
Under system devices there is a unit called “High precision event timer”
By right clicking and disabling this you might get better latency overall.
You can always undo by activating it in the same manner you disabled it if you run into issues.
Nvidia Control Panel
–Nvidia Control Panel Settings–
Adjust image settings with preview : 3rd option – Move the slider to the left, then press the 2nd option and let 3D Settings control the rest
Image Sharpening : Off (You can experiement with 10-20% on 1080p and
choose on the lower resolution option you get ingame)
Ambient Occlusion : Off
Anisotropic Filtering : Application Controlled
AntiAliasing – FXA : Off
AntiAliasing – Gamma correction : On
AntiAliasing – Mode : Application Controlled
AntiAliasing – Transparency : Off
Background Application MFR : Off
CUDA – GPUs : All and make sure it has your GPU selected
DSR – Factors : Off
DSR – Smoothness : Off
Low Latency Mode : Ultra (Ultra usually works okay and gives the best result, but it may vary depending on the game – experiment yourself(You can do this with game open)
Max Frame Rate : Off unless you struggle with Rivatuner as the Nvidia frame rate limiter is fairly close to Rivatuners stable framerate
Monitor Technology : If you have a variable refresh rate monitor G-sync will give you the smoothest framerate without capping your fps but will increase input latency by a small amount
Open GL Rendering GPU : Select your GPU
Shader Cache : Default is fine, but if you have a good amount of space i personally set it to 10GB to ensure it will never be full
Power Management Mode : Prefer Max Performance
Quality – Texture Filtering : High Performance
Threaded Optimization : Auto
Triple Buffering : Off
Vertical Sync : Off
Trilinear Optimization–Texture Filtering : On
–Under Adjust desktop size and position–
Scaling : Does not matter for Performance
But the option to perform the scaling on : Monitor rather than GPU for the best latency
Override scaling configured by game or software = Might work on some titles, others not ( Overall not a big improvement )
%localappdata% – Tiger – Saved – Config – WindowsNoEditor
Here are the config options, open with Notepad (or text editor of your choice) just copy and paste.
It is marked which sections goes into which file, but if you’re unsure.
These groups go into “GameUserSettings”
[D3DRHIPreference] —– Note that this disables dx12 and forces dx11
sg.EffectsQuality=0 — I recommend setting this to 3 rather than 0, makes seeing Saboteurs in stealth more easily.
FullscreenMode=1 should be 0 for True fullscreen
LastConfirmedFullscreenMode=1 should be 0
PreferredFullscreenmode=1 should be 0
In the Engine.ini section i recommend removing these lines below
After making these changes and saving – right click and make them “Read Only”
Otherwise they will change back to default once the game has loaded or a patch has been added.
Game Configs 2
–Game Configs 2–
Windows key – %localappdata% – Tiger – Settings
Open DisplaySettings in Notepad.
This is what you will see.
frameRateLimit: If you are running 240hz you can cap your fps here for the least input latency
( Nvidia, Rivatuner,Gsync etc will improve frame times making it looks smooth, but increase input delay )
frameRateLimitOverride: This option caps the fps to 60 while browsing the map and choosing archetypes before a match, you can set this to
whatever you capped above or 0 if you’re playing on unlimited.
For personal preference, does not impact anything else within the game
Download link: https://www.wagnardsoft.com/content/intelligent-standby-list-cleaner-v1000-releasedOnce downloaded you can use this whenever you play a game.Options within:
The list size is at least: Make this value 1024mb
Free memory is lower than: This is where values will be different for everyone, take your ram size and divide with 2.
For example if you have 16GB ram it will mean you have 16334MB / 2 = 8192 ( You do not need to as specific, you can get away with typing 8000.
8GB = 4000
16GB = 8000
32GB = 16000
