Stronghold Crusader 2 graphic settings
Stronghold Crusader 2 is poorly optimized. The game looks bad and moves bad for its graphics.
Here are some tweaks/settings that allows you to have a decent framerate.
The default resolution of your monitor.
Vertical Sync: off.
Fullscreen: on. The game is pretty much unplayable on windowed mode. You won’t be able to move the camera on the right side. There is no fullscreen-windowed option.
Shadow quality: medium. Won’t make a big difference unless is set on high.
Texture detail: low.
Water detail: low.
Terrain detail: medium.
Dynamic lights: on. The game looks awful with this option turned off.
SS Ambient Occlusion: off.
Rim lightning effects: off.
Bloom effects: off.
Depth of field effect: off.
Level of detail scaling: low.
Particle detail: high.
The game works fine on this video card: ATI Radeon HD 5670 (1 GB GDDR). If you have a worse video card, just try the game with everything on low.
