(HUGE) FIX: for low FPS (at least on NVIDIA cards)
Me and my friends recently got this game, we all have pretty actualized and decent gaming rigs, but as so many of you have experienced the game just ran like crap no matter the video setting you use.
My system Specs:
i5 > 3.2Ghz
MSI GTX560Ti OC
Before i discovered this fix the best i could get ingame at 800x600 with everything off or on lowest settings was around 30 FPS
After this simple fix i discovered twaking the config.cfg my computer runs it at 300fps on menus and between 60-100 ingame, but most important, EVERYTHING MAXED OUT in HD RESOLUTION (1080p)
How to?: easy
-locate this file config.cfg in the cryostasis folder and edit it with notepad or whatever
-find those lines:
@r.fur = 1
@r.postglow = 1
-Change them to look like this:
@r.fur = 0
@r.postglow = 0
-Save the changes and run the game.
Those 2 effects are the FPS killers, at least for NVIDIA gpus, tested with 4 GTX mid-high end cards, all of em got same FPS boost.
Enjoy this great game ;)
