Killing Floor 2 Tweaker v2.2 released!

KF2

I guess I can call this one an Easter Special update for the Spring Event in Killing Floor 2. Updated some of the existing features to be even better and adding few extra goodies that will make gameplay as well as fiddling with INI files more convenient. Happy Easter! 🙂

New features in version 2.2 (2018-03-31)

  • Totally redesigned Disable Intro Videos feature (doesn’t affect credits and loading screens anymore)
  • Added ability to throw 250, 1000 or 5000 dosh with “M” key
  • Added ability to instantly open Killing Floor 2 Config folder without having to manually navigate to it

Killing Floor 2 Tweaker v2.1 released!

KF2

Another day, another huge update for the Killing Floor 2 Tweaker. Spend nearly 2 days testing parameters for shadows and finally managed to figure out correct ones (darn you Only Stream-In Textures setting invalidating all other settings when disabled!). Long hours in the early morning paid off after all 😀

New features in version 2.1 (2018-02-08)

  • Dramatically improved Ultra High Quality Shadows feature (smoother shadows edges, higher shadows resolution and higher shadows draw distance)
  • Removed old “Smooth Framerate” setting under “Performance” section and replaced it with full separate controls for it
  • Redesigned RESTORE DEFAULTS once again, making it faster to use and more granular on a single settings page
  • RESTORE DEFAULTS doesn’t touch INI files that are not in any way manipulated by KF2 Tweaker (except RESET ALL option)
  • Improved 3D Audio settings
  • Updated settings descriptions
  • Minor bug fixes

Recommended to reset “Engine Settings” and “Game System Settings” and re-apply tweaks again due to significant changes in KF2 Tweaker. Not doing so may leave certain tweaks unchanged “in the background” without controls to change them back.

Ultra High Quality Shadows showcase

When Ultra High Quality Shadows feature is enabled, Killing Floor 2 Tweaker sets shadows parameters beyond normal Ultra preset selectable within game settings, making shadow edges dramatically smoother, shadows are more detailed and are rendered significantly further away from player’s point of view. Not only that, distant lower quality shadows now have more details which makes transition between distant lower quality shadows and closer detailed shadows less visible. Performance difference in my tests on GTX 1080Ti are insignificant, but may affect lower end graphic cards slightly.

Killing Floor 2 Tweaker v2.0 released!

KF2

It has been a while since my last update. Have dropped a small update yesterday and decided to dig into Killing Floor 2 settings files again. And found quite few new gems. So many of them in fact that I’ve decided to skip few minor versions and release 2.0 because there are so many new things. A lot of them performance related, some of them visual quality related. I’ve also entirely redesigned the “Restore Defaults” feature which is now more reliable and easy to use since it properly resets the game settings and gives you the control to keep or also reset keybinds (game controls).

New features in version 2.0 (2018-01-23)

  • Removed both of old “Restore Defaults” features because many settings don’t have absolute defaults, but depend on system you’re running KF2 on.
  • Added separate “Restore Keybinds Defaults” option to only reset keybinds to game default.
  • Added new “Restore Defaults” which resets all settings back to your system defaults except keybinds.
  • Added “Smooth Framerate” toggle
  • Added “Instanced Rendering” toggle
  • Added “Compute Bloom and SSAO” toggle
  • Added “Combine Similar Mappings” toggle
  • Added “System Memory Usage (RAM)” allowing you to dedicate more system memory (RAM) to KF2.
  • Updated many settings descriptions
  • Minor bug fixes

Disable film grain effect in Need for Speed 2016

Not sure why this isn’t in the game’s graphics settings, but if you want to get rid of weird shimmering effect on reflections and world in general, you’ll have to disable film grain effect for this game. It may add a certain gritty feel to the game, but not everyone like it and like I said, it creates some sort of minor artifacting on the screen which can be annoying sometimes. I’ve made two screenshots, but on still images, you really have to zoom in to see the difference where in real-time gameplay, it’s easily noticeable. So, best to try both and decide yourself which effect you like the most. I hope Ghost will add this setting to the in-game graphics settings so you don’t have to fiddle with setting files using Notepad…

How to:

Go to…
.\Documents\Need For Speed\settings

…open PROFILEOPTIONS_profile using Notepad.

Search for text 3GstRender.FilmGrain using Ctrl+F function (text searching field).

It will look like this:

NFS2016_FilmGrain.png

See that 1 at the end of 3GstRender.FilmGrain? You have to change it from 1 to 0 (zero).

In the end, it should look like this:

NFS2016_FilmGrain_OFF.png

Click File and Save. Play the game 🙂
