Change Log *v1.4 (2/01/2017)
With new 126.96.36.199 game verison all config files have been reset so changes need to be remade and sg.FoliageQuality variable needs to be readded to the DefaultGameUserSettings.ini file.
Changed config edit location back to original: C:\Users\[COMP NAME]\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Days of War\DaysOfWar\Config
Added: sg.FoliageQuality to both the DefaultScalability.ini & DefaultGameUserSettings.ini
Section 1: Modifying your DefaultGameUserSettings.ini
THIS GUIDE IS 100% SAFE AND LEGAL. YOU WILL NOT GET BANNED, CORRUPT YOUR GAME, ETC. IF YOU WANT TO REVERT TO DEFAULT SETTINGS AT ANY TIME: DELETE THE FILES YOU MODIFIED AND VALIDATE YOUR GAME FILES VIA STEAM LIBRARY.
Simply modify the DefaultGameUserSettings.ini located in your Config folder C:\Users\YourUserName\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Days of War\DaysOfWar\Config as follows:
The values are 0 to 3, with 3 being the most taxing and 0 being the least taxing.
Good starting point to see immediate improvements in FPS:
You don't have to do anything but modify the values manually or copy and paste over the original lines of code in this file. Reasoning: Reduces graphical demands lower than available through the in-game options and increases performance, as well as making visibility clearer.
Attention: Your DefaultGameUserSettings.ini may reset the custom values after certain game updates or after manually changing the graphical settings in-game.
Section 2: Modifying your DefaultScalability.ini
Adding in settings for sg.FoliageQuality:
Open DefaultScalability.ini located in your Config folder(Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Days of War\DaysOfWar\Config)
Add the following code to the bottom of the file to be able to select levels of detail between 0 and 3 in your DefaultGameUserSettings.ini config file
Video settings check: To avoid 'blurryness' in-game, make sure your"Screen Percentage"in the "Video" settings is all the way to the right (100%).
Remember to disable all of the 'fluff' features such as Dust, Lights, and Weather as well as VSync.
Gameplay settings check: In the "Gameplay" settings, you will want to disable the "Camera Bob Enabled" option, and look into using their "Debug" options which can help performance as well.
They warn that the animation visibility optimization is experimental, but can help those on low-end hardware or who want to try and improve performance.
In-Game Usernames: To change your in-game name, it should be based off of your Steam name but if that does not work: edit the"PlayerNickname="line in your "AppData\Local\DaysOfWar\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Engine.ini"file.
Section 4: Utilizing Console Commands
There aren't many console commands compared to most games, but here are the few that we have found to be useful:
gamma 3 | Changes your in-game gamma. Range: 1 to 5.
stat fps | Shows your FPS and ms.
stat unit | Shows overall frame time, game thread, rendering thread, and GPU times.
Section 5: Before & After Screenshots (No Gamma Changes)
Before: After: Thanks to Turner for the screenshots.
