    Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Tweak Guide, By Koroush Ghazi

     Black Ops 2 also provides an interconnecting storyline set in 2025, expanding the Call of Duty series into futuristic warfare. This time, with branching storylines, the choices you make during the campaign will directly influence the outcome. If you enjoy fast-paced multiplayer, then Black Ops 2 provides a solid enhancement to the online gameplay style of the first game. And for PC gamers everywhere, the good news is that Treyarch has listened to your requests: Black Ops 2 drops support for DirectX 9 in exchange for the more advanced DirectX 10/11, and features a range of settings to utilize your PC\\\'s capabilities above and beyond those available on consoles.

    The aim of this guide is to allow you to better understand and best utilize all of the configuration options available in Black Ops 2.

    Before proceeding further, make sure you meet the game\\\'s minimum requirements as provided below:

    • Processor: 2.4 GHz dual core CPU
    • Memory: 2GB RAM (32-bit OS), 4GB RAM (64-bit Windows OS)
    • Hard Drive: At least 16GB of free space
    • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
    • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
    • OS: Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (XP not supported)
    • Internet: Initial installation requires Internet connection for Steam authentication

    What follows are full descriptions for all of the settings available in the various Black Ops 2 options menus. Screenshot comparisons are provided where relevant to highlight the impact on image quality of changing these settings. Performance information is also provided for every setting, although bear in mind that the precise impact on your particular system depends on your specific hardware combination and your other game and system-wide settings. The aim here is to give you enough information so that you can make an informed choice as to the settings you enable or disable to obtain a balance of visual quality and performance acceptable to you.

    General System Optimization

    Almost as important as any in-game setting is the way your Windows installation is configured. A great many problems and performance issues, especially stuttering, crashes and slowdowns, can be traced directly to sub-optimal settings in Windows and out-of-date or badly configured drivers. Go through our Stable Gaming Guide to get your PC in the best shape. At the very least make sure to update your Graphics Drivers to the latest available version.

    Performance Measurement

    To successfully conduct any tweaking, you will need some way of objectively measuring your performance in Frames Per Second (FPS). The easiest way to do this is to use the built-in Draw FPS option, found under the Advanced section of the in-game Settings menu. Enabling this option will result in a yellow FPS counter being shown at the top right of the screen.

    Pay attention to your FPS during the game, particularly during graphically intense scenes, such as combat with multiple enemies, or when special effects such as smoke or explosions are visible. If your FPS dips to a very low level at any point, or is constantly spiking, then this is a good indication that you need to adjust various settings, whether to raise your minimum FPS to at least 30 FPS, or simply to stabilize your framerate to prevent stuttering and variable responsiveness. Keep in mind that since Black Ops 2 is a very fast-paced game, for multiplayer you may need a minimum FPS that is much higher than 30 FPS to maintain sufficient responsiveness to remain competitive.

    General Settings

    To access the full suite of in-game settings, launch Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and select the Options item on the main menu, then select Settings. The main graphics-related options are covered in detail later in this guide. First we examine the general gameplay, sound and control options in this section. None of these settings has any significant impact on performance.

    Gameplay

    Subtitles: If set to Enabled, text subtitles will be shown at the bottom of the screen during conversations and cut scenes, while Disabled removes all such subtitles. This option is specific to campaign mode.

    Graphic Content: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 contains content which some players may find disturbing. If this option is set to Disabled, as much of these elements as possible is removed from the game without changing the storyline. This includes blood and gore effects, foul language, and any violent historical footage shown during the campaign. This setting has no impact on multiplayer mode.

    Player Name Indicator: This setting controls the information displayed above player heads in multiplayer mode:

    • Full Name - The player\\\'s rank icon and rank, any clan tag, and name will be displayed, in that order.
    • Abbreviated - Only the player name, devoid of rank or clan tag, is shown.
    • Icon Only - Only the rank icon and rank level is shown, without any name or clan tag.

    Color Blind Assist: If set to On, this option changes the colors used in the minimap so that they are more easily distinguishable for people who are color blind.

    Chat Messages: If set to Show, this option will allow the display of player text chat messages on the screen in multiplayer mode. If you find these messages distracting or annoying, you can remove them by selecting Hide for this setting.

    Sound

    Volume: There are multiple sliders here allowing control of the volume level for various game audio elements. This includes: Voice for spoken dialog, Music for in-game background music, SFX for special effects such as gunfire and explosions, a Master volume slider that controls the overall volume of all elements, a Cinematic volume slider that determines the level of audio for in-game cut-scenes during campaign mode, and Codcaster sliders to control the volume of gameplay and commentary when watching a pre-recorded game. None of these sliders has any impact on performance, so set them to suit your taste.

    Hearing Impaired: If this option is enabled, spoken dialog will be enhanced over any background audio to make it easier to distinguish.

    Sound Device: This item is may not be selectable if you have only one sound output device connected. It displays the name of the sound hardware that Black Ops 2 is currently using to output game audio on your system. If a connected device is not being identified correctly, or you are having problems with audio output on it, then you will first need to check your Windows sound settings under the Sound component of the Windows Control Panel, then check your sound card or motherboard manufacturer\\\'s website for the latest sound drivers.

    Presets: There are five preset audio mixes here, each determining the way in which game audio is processed:

    • Headphones - Boosts audio response at both ends of the spectrum to provide richer audio on standard headphones.
    • Treyarch Mix - The recommend audio processing for most systems with standard two or more channel speaker setups, as well as high-end headphones.
    • Bass Boost - Increases the low frequency response to provide heavier bass. Suitable if you prefer more bass, or have small speakers.
    • High Boost - Increases the high frequency response to provide crisper audio.
    • Supercrunch - Provides exaggerated sound output at all frequencies. This can make it easier to detect any noise, particularly during multiplayer.

    Once a preset is selected, you can click the System Test option to initiate a brief test sequence. However, any changes to the presets during the test sequence will not be reflected until the test is run again.

    Controls

    The Controls section of the settings allows you to remap your mouse, gamepad and keyboard control assignments. Make sure to go through this section, not only to customize it, but to also become aware of all the various settings. Of note are the following:

    Invert Mouse Look: If set to Yes, pushing your mouse forward will make your character aim down, and moving your mouse back will make him aim upwards. If set to No, the arrangement is reversed.

    Mouse Sensitivity: This slider determines the level of responsiveness of the mouse to your movements. The further to the right the slider, the more responsive the mouse will feel. Keep in mind that if your mouse movements feel laggy, even after raising the Mouse Sensitivity, there are several other things you should check:

    • If your framerate falls below around 30 FPS at any time, particularly during heavy combat, you will start to notice reduced responsiveness. You will need to adjust your graphics settings to raise your minimum FPS.
    • Check the Max Frames Per Second graphics setting (covered later in this guide) to make sure it isn\\\'t set to a low cap, such as 30 FPS. This is too low a maximum frame rate to allow for sufficient responsiveness in a fast-paced game like Black Ops 2; it should be set to at least 60.
    • If the Sync Every Frame setting is enabled, or you have Vertical Sync set to On or Adaptive in the NVIDIA Control Panel, this can contribute to a less responsive feel to mouse movements. See the Sync Every Frame setting in the Graphics Settings section later in this guide for more details.

    Mouse Smoothing: If set to On, this setting attempts to reduce the jerkiness of mouse movements by taking the average of several input samples, rather than just a single sample at any time. Note that mouse smoothing is not the same as mouse acceleration/deceleration. The main benefit of enabling mouse smoothing is that it can increase precision and, as the name implies, provide a feeling of smoothness in mouse movements. The major drawback is that it can result in noticeable mouse lag, making the mouse feel less responsive, particularly during fast-paced action. On balance it is best set to Off for maximum responsiveness in Borderlands 2.

    Also keep in mind that a high mouse sensitivity, while it can improve responsiveness, may also reduce accuracy.

    On the next page we begin our look at the various graphics-related settings in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

    Graphics Settings

     

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has a large number of graphics-related settings, and these can have a substantial impact on the way the game looks and plays on your system.

General Optimization

Battlefield 3 Tweak Guide by Koroush Ghazi

 however BF3 turns the formula back towards the wider mix of infantry and vehicle warfare that was in Battlefield 2. Fighter aircraft take to the skies again, there are over 20 driveable vehicles, and a whole new range of vehicle and weapons modifications provide something for every style of gameplay. With 9 huge multiplayer maps and 5 game modes (Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch, Rush, Squad Rush and Conquest), playing BF3 is as close as many of us will get to the feeling of being in the thick of a large-scale battle. It's no exaggeration to say that Battlefield 3 really pours on the adrenaline-charged action in precisely the way that many BF2 fans have been eagerly awaiting

The aim of this guide is to allow you to better understand and best utilize all of the configuration options available in Battlefield 3.

Before proceeding further, make sure you meet the game's minimum requirements as provided below, with the recommended requirements in brackets:

  • Processor: 2 GHz dual core CPU (Quad Core CPU)
  • Memory: 2GB (4GB) RAM
  • Hard Drive: At least 20GB of free space
  • Video Card: DirectX 10 compatible (NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT minimum, GTX 560 or above recommended)
  • Sound Card: DirectX compatible
  • OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7

Importantly: Battlefield 3 does not run under Windows XP. It requires DirectX 10 support at a minimum, which only Windows Vista and Windows 7 can provide.

What follows are full descriptions for all of the settings available in BF3's various options menus. Screenshot comparisons are provided where relevant to highlight the impact on image quality of changing these settings. Performance information is also provided for every setting, although bear in mind that the precise impact on your particular system depends on your specific hardware combination and your other game and system-wide settings. The aim here is to give you enough information so that you can make an informed choice as to the settings you enable or disable to obtain a balance of visual quality and performance acceptable to you.

General System Optimization

Almost as important as any in-game setting is the way your Windows installation is configured. A great many problems and performance issues, especially stuttering, crashes and slowdowns, can be traced directly to sub-optimal settings in Windows and out-of-date or badly configured drivers. Take a look at our Stable Gaming Guide for tips on how to get your PC in the best shape. At the very least make sure to update your graphics drivers to the latest available version, as the latest drivers are specifically optimized for Battlefield 3.

Performance Measurement

To successfully conduct any tweaking, you will need some way of objectively measuring your performance in Frames Per Second (FPS). The quickest and easiest way to measure your FPS in BF3 is to open the in-game console by pressing the ~ key (above the TAB key). Then type render.drawfps 1 and press Enter to display a small FPS counter at the top right of the screen. You can disable this FPS counter by opening the console again and typing render.drawfps 0 and pressing Enter. More details are in the Advanced Tweaking section of the guide.

Pay attention to your FPS during the game, particularly during graphically intense scenes, such as in heavy combat or in highly detailed outdoor areas. If your FPS dips into the low double or single digits for example, this is a good indication that you need to adjust various settings until your minimum FPS is consistently above 20-25 FPS during normal gameplay, such as when walking around, and higher still (30-35 FPS) during combat to maintain appropriate responsiveness in a fast-paced game like BF3.

Video Settings

The full range of video settings can be found under the Video tab of the Options screen. In the following sections, we'll go through each of the video settings and see how they affect performance and image quality.

 

Settings

 

In the performance graphs shown, for each setting we start with a "baseline" where all options are set to the High video preset, as well as setting Fullscreen to On and VSync to Off. From this baseline, we vary individual settings to measure their effect on performance and image quality. To see how various combinations of settings work for other NVIDIA GPUs, check out the Optimal Playable Settings section of the site.

Full System Configuration

  • GeForce GTX 560 1GB
  • Intel Core i7 940
  • 3GB RAM
  • Win7 64-bit
  • Nvidia 285.62 WHQL Drivers

eneral Video Settings

The general video settings can be found on the left side of the Video tab, and are covered below.

Fullscreen Monitor: If you have multiple monitors, this setting allows you to select which one to use as your primary display monitor for BF3.

Fullscreen Resolution: This determines the Resolution of the game image, measured by the number of pixels horizontally and vertically (e.g. 1920 pixels x 1080 pixels). It also lets you select the Refresh Rate at your chosen resolution shown in Hz. The number of resolutions and refresh rates available here is limited by the capabilities of both your graphics card and monitor. The higher the resolution you choose, the more detailed the image will be. However higher resolutions also generate an increased load on your system, particularly your graphics card, and hence can reduce your overall performance. The performance impact can sometimes be substantial, so if adjusting the other settings fails to sufficiently improve your performance, reduce your resolution. For the sharpest image on an LCD monitor, either select the maximum available resolution here, which is also referred to as your Native Resolution, or if choosing a resolution below your maximum, set the Fullscreen option to Off - see further below.

An indication of the performance impact of changing this setting is shown below:

Resolution Chart

The graph shows that progressively higher resolutions will reduce your FPS significantly. Resolution is one of the major determinants of overall performance in BF3.

Fullscreen: If you want to run BF3 in a window on your Desktop, as opposed to taking up the entire screen, then select Off here. Running BF3 in windowed is best done if you want to reduce the game's screen resolution to improve performance, but still maintain a crisp image.

Brightness: This slider controls the level of brightness for the in-game image. It has no impact on performance, so set to suit your taste.

Vertical Sync: Vertical Synchronization (VSync) is the synchronization of your graphics card and monitor's abilities to redraw an image on the screen a number of times each second, measured in Hz. This is not the same as FPS, but when VSync is On your maximum FPS will also be capped to your monitor's Refresh Rate - see your Refresh Rate value in the Fullscreen Resolution setting. For most people the refresh rate is around 59-60Hz, which means your framerate will be also capped to around 60 FPS if VSync is On. When VSync is Off, you may experience a phenomenon known as 'tearing': portions of the image temporarily appear to be out of alignment. This does no harm to your system, but it can be annoying. Enabling VSync removes tearing but aside from capping the framerate, it can also reduce your FPS by up to 50% or more, and importantly, introduce some mouse lag. To benefit from VSync without taking the performance hit, you can enable Triple Buffering, which should already be enabled by default in BF3. Otherwise the easiest way to guarantee the highest framerates, and to prevent any mouse lag, is to simply set Vertical Sync to Off. You can also disable Triple Buffering as covered in the Advanced Tweaking section.

Field of View: This setting determines your Field of View (FOV), which is how much of the game world you can see at once on the screen. The default is 70 degrees, and here you can select any value between 60 and 90 degrees. Raising FOV requires a level restart to apply any changes, and it can also reduce performance if raised due to more of the game world being visible. See the Advanced Tweaking section if you want to set a custom FOV value.

Motion Blur Amount: This setting determines the amount of Motion Blur used. Since it's dependent on the Motion Blur setting, its impact is covered in the description for that setting later in this guide.

Open Screen Adjust: When you click 'Open Screen Adjust', a new screen will open. Within it is a dark gray window with arrows on its edges, indicating the maximum extent to which the Heads Up Display (HUD) elements, such as your compass and ammo counter, can be displayed on your screen. Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to resize this window. For example, expand the gray window all the way to the edges of the screen, and in turn your HUD elements will be displayed at the far edges of the screen as well, making them less obstructive.

Stereoscopic 3D: Battlefield 3 now supports stereoscopic 3D. NVIDIA users who have a 3D Vision-capable system can turn this option On to provide a more immersive gameplay experience. More information on how to enable and use this functionality is on this page.

Colorblind Support: If set to On, the game will alter some of the colors used for various game elements to ensure that they are easier to distinguish for players who are color blind.

Once you've adjusted the settings on this screen, you will be prompted to apply and save your settings.
