A Word From Our Techpriests

We have seen a lot of comments about raytracing being on by default for many of our users and we have been investigating this for quite some time. We thought we had caught all cases of this in the release patch but more issues have been found.

We have managed to identify another issue that affects players on GPUs that do not support raytracing at all. The issue is that we have faulty fallbacks for settings that are removed from the settings menu because they are not supported on the GPU causing them to fall back to true instead of false.

The patch for this will reset your settings and re-detect optimal settings from the launcher, when the game is launched we should set proper defaults for you that sets rt_reflections_enabled and rtxgi_enabled to false.

It is important to note that our user settings file contains multiple other raytracing related settings, these settings are sub settings to rt_reflections_enabled and rtxgi_enabled and controls the behavior of those features. Changing those settings or the settings being true has no bad effect on performance whatsoever. In fact some of those features being enabled is because they enable optimizations to the raytracing features. Turning all of them off is not necessarily the most optimal state for performance should you want to enable raytracing in the future.

There is one exception to this and it is the setting called “rtxgi_scale”. This setting while controlling the quality of the dynamic rtxgi if rtxgi_enabled = true will also control the quality of the baked rtxgi if the setting baked_ddgi = true (the setting called “Global Illumination” under advanced settings). When you set rtxgi_scale to 0 that means that the baked rtxgi will also be off. While this will give you better framerate, and might be another reason for following the guides gives you better framerate, some levels that rely highly on this baked global illumination for their looks will become excessively dark as they will lack sufficient light contribution in heavily occluded areas. This is the reason why we decided to not support turning off Global Illumination from the settings menu as it makes some levels almost unplayable due to the darkness for which we have no suitable fallback.

You are of course always free to tweak your settings manually and play around with the different options we give you in there but please do note that there is an intended logic to these settings where it is quite easy to set them up to conflict with each other. This is something that our settings menus and launcher detection takes into consideration. Any manual editing of the user_settings.config may result in settings ending up in a permanently broken state from which the settings menu might not be able to save you, in this case using the reset button in the launcher is your best solution to the problem. That option will clear all your render settings and start you over fresh. Please be aware that manual editing of the user_settings.config, especially modifying read/write properties of that file will make it very hard for us to diagnose/debug your problems should you have them so when reporting bugs related to settings make sure to mention if you have edited them manually to avoid confusion. There is no shame in this, we just want to know this so that we can offer the proper assistance.
