changed the resolution to 800×600

– reduced range of display shadows

After applying this mod, we have seen a significant improvement in overall framerates and there’s not much quality downgrade. On a low end GPU such as the AMD Radeon HD 5770 there was around 50 fps in the forest and around 30+ frames in Novigard.

  1. game has been updated to 1.0.4, but mod requires 1.0.3, can these settings be changed in the game files, or an older version restored

  2. Thanks a lot Zunair!

    @mygunsisforfun: Settings work on 1.0.4. It is not really a mod as you just copy the user files into your witcher 3 directory and therefore should assist with any future patch, you might just have to copy it over again.

    I have a Radeon 6970m, which is below min spec, and I tested at low settings first without the “mod”, which was slightly laggy and I dropped fps. With the “mod” this was improved visibly. I even cranked the mod up to 1920×1080 and still runs fine.

    The game runs very smoothly for a PC eater…

    GJ Zunair!

      • Hi how to use this mod? My pc is NVidia 545, and I found out the game requires 600. will this work with 1.07? I’ve been so frustrated that on some days it can run when I have set all to lowest but now it will freeze very long and have to force shut down. Oh no I hope it won’t be like what that above user says 🙁 I asked their tech admin but all they say is patch but seems a bit worse

  3. When i use those files my 1.07 game says “game version has been updated. all settings reset to their defaults”. Game resets settings even if i make those files read only. It just won’t use them and use some temporary settings instead witch wont be saved after game closes. What is the problem? How can i fix that? I believe i don’t have any DLC installed. Only patches. Unless GoG includes DLC in their patches.

    player.settings file of 1.07 version has some different values than file presented here. I tried modyfying 1.07 file by adding values from BUDGET section but game just deletes all entries with cv preset.

  4. What the f*** dude.. i have Nvidia Geforce Gt740m..
    And witcher 3 was lag on lowest settings ..
    This file that you mentioned …its working successfully …. thnkz a lot…. its working

  5. I currently have the Witcher 3 Hunter’s config program installed, and have modified some minor things in my user.settings file. Can you tell me if and what changes might occur with the installation of this mod?
