Risen 3: Titan Lords graphic tweaks


Anisotropic filtering: off.

Depth of field: on. The option will actually improve the framerate if it’s turned on.

Anti-aliasing: on. It doesn’t affect the framerate.

Water Reflections: off. This option consumes a lot of resources. Can make the game to run fluent or lag, especially if your character is near the shores of the sea.

Shadow Quality: Low. The biggest resource consumer. Turn it to low to obtain the best framerate/quality. If the option is turned off, the game will look really bad. Only turn it off if you run on a video card that has less than 1Gb GDDR5.

The last six options didn’t affected the framerate at all. You can leave them to “high”.

Landscape Quality: High.

Texture Quality: High.

Foliage Quality: High.

Shader Quality: High.

Viewable Object Distance: High.

Viewable Landscape Distance: High.

I’ve managed to obtain around 18-25 FPS (measured with Fraps) with these settings on this system: Intel I3 3GHz, 8 gigabytes RAM, ATI Radeon HD 5670 (1 GB GDDR).

How is the game working out for you?

    It’s a problem with the game. I have sometimes 37 fps. No matter which setting i will change. I am really pissed when it’s happening. cuz i need to open the game many times to get normal stable 60 fps…

    I encounter the same problem but only after I alt tab to Windows and then back to the game.

    Also it happens if anything nasty is running in the background.
