RotWK Lag Minimization Guide

By brabox - 8th October 2017 - 14:19 PM

Improving performance

You can try:
  1. Reduce in-game graphics setting
    For instance, use low/medium and not ultra high.

  2. Close all background applications while playing.
    You can use Windows Task Manager to see which processes use CPU. Click on the "Processes" tab and then on the "CPU" column (see image) so the arrow faces down. Close the applications that are high on the list except for System Idle Process.

  3. Experiment with your video card settings (via the Nvidia or AMD control panel). Use the "speed > quality" setting, or you can manually:
    • Disable anti-aliasing
    • Set texture filtering to performance mode and/or disable texture optimization
    • Increase pre-rendered frames
    • Enable single display optimization (if you use 1 display)

  4. Reduce the game's resolution.
    Be aware that this significantly reduces the visual quality. However, since this game was not made when "full HD" monitors where a thing, the game may not be optimized for high resolutions. Use the 2.02 switcher's "Resolution Fixer" tool (see image) to reduce your game's resolution. Multiplying the width and height values by 0.75 or 0.5 is a good way to maintain the correct aspect ratio. For example:
    • 1920×1080 -> 1440×810 or 960×540
    • 1280×720 -> 960×540

  5. Remove any 3rd party graphics mods.
    Custom zoom outs or texture packs can also contribute to extra lag.
