So this will be a very long and drawn out post about how to fix fps / Make it higher. I've been playing since release so I know a thing or two about dat fps life. If you do not have an SSD - Putting your game on texture quality high will be quite a struggle for your PC. It will reduce stutter and you will have a much better time over all. If you do not have a SSD and you're wondering why sometimes you're getting stutter on a texture that's above medium this might be the reason why. Graphic - The differance from Medium and slightly high are a lot larger than just slightly high to very high. You might see very minimal changes going from slightly to very high. But as for Medium to slightly it's a huge impact to fps in general. The big FPS killers are Improve distance - Faraway NPC detail - Shower workers should all be disabled as you will not see much of a difference with these on and often times this will just suck your FPS. Auto frame Optimizer does next to nothing turning this off and lowering overall settings would be a better choice in general. High end mode is simply just not worth using. Even with me running a 1080TI I stray away from using it. Make sure that Graphic card low-power Mode Is always turned off ( especially if you're on a laptop ) If you're about to go to a boss making sure that Remove other players effects is on is vital to having better fps. Also making sure that distance effects is also off, simply while farming you might see a FPS increase while leaving these on. You will only need these when you pvp in 1v1's. Or 1vx small group battles. Gamma And Contrast are personal Perf. Character name display - if you hide all of the names you'll get a small fps increase off of this. Going into your Game and turning off system Notifications will depend on your system on low end systems I would say to turn off a few of these. Also another big one is to hide all pets or view just your own pets ( as you will receive a huge loss in frame surprisingly by seeing others pets ) If you want to edit your UI Hit ESC and disable ( By clicking the eye in the corner ) All UI essentials that you don't need. Going next into the Nivida settings. These are always going to matter based on the graphic card that you have; However Anisotrpic Filting - Off if you're having issues. Texture filtering - Making sure this is on Performance if you're having issues. If you're have an issue with Vsync turn it off and turning Tripple buffer on helps in some cases. However if you turn it off and you start to get screen tearing turn it back on and use fast. If you're getting massive stutter sometimes this is related to temp files, other times it can be the cache file as well. However, this is one of those games that Ping can effect fps. Sadly, so once again looking at my VPN guide might help you if you have higher ping. Another way to increase fps as listed by @Armageddonx911 on reddit is 1.Start up task manager when BDO is running , you have to be logged in the character in the game. Not character or server selection. 2.Set BlackDesert64.exe to high priority. 3.Find ALL the CoherentUI_Host.exe . Right click each and set their priority to LOW. 4.Repeat 3rd step but instead set AFFINITY and UNTICK all the cores except 1. ( CPU 0) 5.Profit Also sometimes this works Set the BDO Launcher to Windows XP Service Pack 3 Compatibility. Also, Another list of Nvidia Settings I'm not going to steal anymore information from him but overall these are simple sets to improve FPS without going too in depth. For the rest of the steps you can look into https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdeser...ultimate_guide_for_fpsperformanceping_issues/ For more ways he'll be able to teach you this is as much as I can really tell you without stealing stuff from him. Thank you for your time, I hope this helps. Cheers!
