I saw someone on YouTube who used this config but they just blur-ed the roads and grass but not the clothings, removed graffiti and blurred the in-game ads
Can I know how to do so?
The clothing looks poor after I used the config ='(
Just blur the roads and remove the in game graffiti no prob gimme a few. Quick question what position is your quality slider?

It would actually be roads and buildings though they are the same textcat

I'm using a config (after changing yours lowest one a bit) which makes things lower than yours. I still lag, but instead of freezing i microstutter (rarely freeze anymore). I can also now record with it.

I changed it after this, charactor models and car models seem to be even worse xD

(starting to record in better quality)

Interesting development, I was trying FloatingPointRenderTargets=False* today out of curiosity, it actually doesn't improve FPS around explosions, it just seems to remove the visibility and ruin the look of the game, you can try it your self and watch your FPS take a hit even though the explosion wasn't "rendered" but I guess really it's just not visible to your eye but it's still there, FPS took the same hit with it off as it does with it on, so basically that setting is worthless. :pumpkin01:

Pretty much and it also removes a lot of the post processing thats probably why it looks like crap.

I could really use better FPS...

Is there any way to get the lowest quality possible on everything BUT clothing/character details? I saw the config you used earlier but my FPS wasn't really affected by the change.

If it wouldn't be too much trouble could you do two configs? One with just clothing, one with clothing and vehicle detail? If not, just clothing is fine. Thanks!

First off thank you a lot for providing these.

But unfortunately I still get drops to 5-10 fps. I honestly think my hardware may not be suited for APB anymore (this test was a fresh install with extremely low settings).

I'm not willing to test without character rendering because that's the only reason I play anymore, but I doubt there would be much of a difference...

Gonna try some other stuff. Saving the setting files. Thank you a lot again!

Anytime! Sorry it didn't help out :(. Was it a fresh install of APB or a full format and install of windows?

These look like they could help me get better fps, but where do I put them once I've downloaded the config? lol I'm completely clueless about computers, so I'd be grateful for any help ^_^

EDIT: nvm a few of my friends helped me set it up. I'm using the one that doesn't affect clothes/cars, and it's like a dream lol
Thx so mush USPStyle ^_^

Hi there, I tried your config but the fps didn't boost. :(
Probably because I have been using a low quality config. I was wondering if you can tell me which option to turn false so that the road and ads and graffitis would be blurred? Thanks for the help

StaticDecals=True (Setting to False removes Graffiti)
TEXCAT_Environment (Roads and buildings)
TEXCAT_Signage (In game billboards)

It should look something like:
TEXCAT_Environment=(Usage=0,MinLODSize=1,MaxLODSize=4096,LODBias=0,DisableStreaming=False,FairUsagePriority=10)
TEXCAT_Environment=(Usage=1,MinLODSize=1,MaxLODSize=4096,LODBias=0,DisableStreaming=False,FairUsagePriority=10)

The values you want to change are MinLODSize=x,MaxLODSize=y,LODBias=z
-x&y=Lower values provide lower quality
--The lowest seems to be ~16 you can put both at 0 and it will just use the lowest allowable
-y=The higher the value the blurrier the image.
--The highest usable value is 4, using a higher number will not do anything but you are welcome to try :P.

One day when I get around to it I will make a full write-up.

Make lodbias -1 and it should lower it more than 0.

You saw that in the APB.ru config didn't you? :P As for why they did that I do not know (I wish I did) since a higher LODBias value in the TEXCAT will blur the image more and a negative value will give it more clarity. I might have to try out their config to see what it looks like. :)

Hey USP, some users have been requesting a config file that only has reduced blood particles, can you upload one and put it on the main page, 005000.0 should do, I've been directing people here, but some people are too lazy to actually change one setting them selves.

Which setting needs to be changed just so explosions don't cause massive lag?
Most important being cars blowing up, tommy gun sprays and even percs blowing up.

It's weird because I never used to have any issues with those but recently, I think after the last patch or so, I have had some really annoying moments.

The worst part is my mouse glitches out at the same time as well... it just doesn't respond correctly and goes crazy.
Is there a setting for that or is that just the lag causing the mouse to go crazy?

I've already turned off mouse acceleration a while ago.
I have always had some strange mouse problems in this game... but it has got really bad recently.

I am using their config atm and charactors are NOT blurred however there are 0 car customizations. Just because of they way they designed it. There is another which gets rid of every customization but i'm not using it (i did but it made it hard for me to hit people cause they were all clay models xD.

ParticleMaxWorldSpaceArea=100000.0
To
ParticleMaxWorldSpaceArea=000001.0

Should help decrease particle lag maybe -0.1 will work as well, have not tried that yet,
