I absolutely hate DLSS 3, the delay it causes completely ruins the immersion for me, and I’ve no idea how anyone thinks it’s usable in a game that relies on reflexes to dodge enemies, but to each their own.
At the same time, I realize that my potato RTX3080, 5800X@5GHz, 32GB@3800CL16 computer will not run this game natively 1440p at any reasonable FPS.
Is there some hidden setting in some config file, or some DLLs I can replace or whatever to get DLSS 1 or 2 instead?
FSR somehow lowers FPS on my rig, so that’s not an option.
Newer versions of DLSS usually bring improvements in image quality, performance, or both.
All files are digitally signed with NVIDIA’s signature, so you can be sure they are unaltered.
Download your desired version and extract the .dll file here:
C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Warhammer 40,000 DARKTIDE\binaries (or wherever you have chosen to install the game)
The game uses version 2.4.0 from March 25th, 2022 which is odd, as the newest version (2.5.0) is from December 12th, 2022.
If you boot up the game, and you just see a black screen when loading in - delete the folder: C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Fatshark (xxxxxx is your name on your PC) and boot up again. If you can’t see the “AppData” folder, make sure you have “show hidden folders” checked in file-explorer settings.
You’re right, I tried every newer version and for some reason, it removes the DLSS option in the settings menu (in-game)? Must be because the current version the game uses (2.4.0) is hard coded into the game somehow, despite you remove the file for a newer one. Still odd they use this version, as many newer versions has been released since, which improve performance, quality etc.
Only if you also disable V-Sync, ensure this is enabled and you will have no screen tearing what so ever.
G-Sync keeps your screen refresh rate in sync with your FPS, my experience thus far has been G-Sync is causing more issues (in Darktide) to what it’s supposed to be solving in the first place. I’m getting an overall much ‘smoother’ experience and with V-Sync enabled, without any screen tearing.
Based on this current response, yeah things are obvious your rather input sensitive.
And did it occur to you I’m might be running G-Sync for the exact same reason, yet here I am pointing out that disabling it made the game (for me) to run ‘smoother’ and provide an over better experience?
I mean you might have also noticed that op might be a bit delusional. He thinks hes using dlss 3 on a 3080, and that for some reason that causes massive input lag. The forced reflex enabled when using that adds a few ms, and your frame times with frame generation are still below 10ms.
Ill check out how the game feels with out gsync. Might be worth a try with all those frame time spikes the engine seems to have baked in.
I don’t get how that can be tbh. 3070ti, 5800X and 32GB RAM here and the game runs at >100fps in the hub, and 60-90FPS during missions on medium @1440p (DLSS: performance, Nvidia Reflex on). Sounds like something is maybe not quite “right” with your system/setup otherwise. Unless “reasonable” FPS to you is > 120 ^^
