Note;
  • You need to make sure 'OverallQuality=' is set to -1 for custom settings to be applied.
  • I have my shadows on medium because they are too heavy on PC resources when playing FPS games.
  • Motion blur and ambient occlusion are both off because I find them to be gimmicks that have no effect in improving visual quality.

  • Everything else is set to where they should be for ultra, this will also move over most of the processes to your GPU which will also improve your fps because the CPU will not bottleneck your system.

    General info

    Everything except TextureQuality and ParticleLOD is as follows;
    1 = Low
    2 = Medium
    3 = High
    4 = Ultra

    TextureQuality is as follows;
    3 = Low
    2 = Medium
    1 = High
    0 = Ultra

    PartliceLOD is as follows;
    0 = Low
    1 = Medium
    2 = High
    3 = Ultra

    I've uploaded some screenshots from in-game to show the difference between the two settings.

    If you look carefully, the textures on the vehicle terminal are sharper, especially on the bottom left side where there are 4 circles.


    In this screenshot you can clearly see the textures on the vehicle are more detailed.


    Look carefully at the lightings grills and vents, they look more sharper thanks to better textures.


    Notice the detail of the heat haze surrounding the inner explosion, surrounding buildings and landing platform.

    Does this increase the graphics beyond the settings possible in the in-game menu?

    Damn, it looks good now :D
    Thx for these settings (turned motion blur off though, it annoys me, and set RenderDistance to 3000).
    Runs pretty good at the warpgate, I'll test it in battle later in the evening :P

    I can run Ultra at +-40FPS, which really is good enough, but just like playing or med or low settings, i keep getting the same stutter every few secs, which really ruins gameplay in high pop area's.

    It wasn't always like this though, before GU3 i had perfect smooth gameplay, but it all got fucked after GU4 for me.

    Damn stutter...

    I'm running a q6600 at 2.6 with 6GB ram and a gtx660 no matter what settings I go to that I've tried I can only get about 20 fps in any platoon vs platoon battle, then I go to a tech lab and it just get's a whole lot worse. Wish it ran better :(

    The only setting that goes to ultra is the texture, the other ones just defaults back to medium and that's why some players say they have more fps with "ultra settings"

    You can overclock that q6600 to around 3.2ghz with very little effort. I run mine at that and it made a MASSIVE difference to the games performance.

    I clocked my i5 from 3.5 to 4.4, and it made a *massive* difference as well. Just as I can tell you that the upgrade from 2.3 to 3.5 is *massive* too.
