Graphics settings

Do you have some special graphics settings? I saw in other sections threads about optimal settings but not in this one. I can run it easily on ultra but I would like to know what would be the best settings for visibility/gameplay. There is not much help on youtube because it seems that most of those youtubers don't know anything about 'good/optimal settings'.

I saw this http://i.imgur.com/3sihuTt.png and this http://i.imgur.com/EbWUayb.jpg but I am not sure after this one Graphics settings and how they affect FPS even if it is for BF4.


You can post your settings for comparison.

Well, for one you should turn up mesh quality to ultra (unlike what those pictures showed) because it affects draw distance.

Also (from my understanding and what I've heard) using resolution scale >100% with "low" post-processing is sort of a waste, because post-processing controls the type (and thus quality) of filtering done when the image is scaled back to your native resolution.

Things people said

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

fxaa medium-high and resolution at 125% for lower performing pcs and i guess you could go above that with better pcs, it just makes the antia-alias so much better.

i actually use terrian at low, no ambient occclusion(though i do sometimes think about getting to ssao... but the last patch gave a pretty big impact on performance so at least for now i won't) and post-process to medium to fix some issues, other then that, same as adonariz+ what i said above for anti alias.

Nvidia is recommending me using 75% for the Resolution Scale in addition to setting everything at Low. Haha.
