  • HUGE performance boost (how to use DX9)

    This has been posted all over the internet but just in case...

    <path to documents and settings>/BFBC2Beta/settings.ini


    In there, if you change:

    DxVersion=auto

    to

    DxVersion=9

    The game will use Direct X 9 instead of defaulting to 10. This has given me a 100% performance increase. I put all of my settings on max and I get 70+ FPS.

    Also I haven't tested but I have seen if you set

    bloom=true

    to

    bloom=false

    You get a performance increase too but not nearly as much as the direct x 9.

    This gave me between 20 and 30 more FPS on average, MUCH smoother now, thanks.

    Also, either this or me putting on the TG tag has made me do better all day.... You decide which.

      You can't have any AA if you force Dx9 just FYI

          Nice post.....changing that DX setting just upped my performance enough to make things playable.

              no change in FPS or appearance?

                One thing that can be very easy to do is overclock. I over clocked my i5 750 from 2.66 GHz to 2.8 GHz (also OCd my GTX 260 from 575MHz to 675MHz) llast night and got a huge boost in performance. Went from 40-50 FPS to 70 FPS on high settings with DX9, I might try and switch back to DX10 later to see the effects.

                  Dx10 gives my Macbook Pro issues... I get graphical artifacts, and lots of strange issues. Even if I play on low, the artifacts show up.

                  On Dx9, though, I can run on all high with not the slightest of issues.

                      WOW! I can actually run where I want to and kill people now..

                      If you haven't tried this yet do so. The game runs so smoothly for me now it's unbelievable.. My KD is now around 2 instead of 0,50-1 and I doubled my accuracy if not tripled it.. Even the recoil is better:D

                        Hey gang, I moved to DX9 and it helped some but my real problem is that everything freezes for a second or two at times in the game. Mainly when I am in a firefight so I get killed even more than i usually do.....

                        Anyone have any idea what is causing this?

                          lag issues?....it's pretty common

                            i did this and thought i would work as you can see in my last post a few up.....it didn't work for me it's as if i have lag too!! my ping is always around 15-20 though i heard some people with single core CPU's such as myself could even handle the game on medium settings and i had a better video card then them i think
                            i also have nothing running in the backround except teamspeak

                              I had a 3GHz dual-core and it was struggling mightily to keep up with the destructible environment on low settings. I don't know where you heard that, but unfortunately it just ain't so.
