[GUIDE] Insurgency: Sandstorm configs for low-ends

Post by Kentone » Fri Aug 31, 2018 10:29 pm

And by low end, I say at least:
8GB RAM
2GB GPU (Tested on 750ti Boost)
i3 7100

NEW INSTRUCTIONS!
If you have 16 GB of ram this should make not a lot of change in performance, this is for the people that plays with 8GB!

Put all the graphic settings to low, maybe you can have the FXAA or the effects a bit up as they shouldn't affect memory a lot
then just go to:

Code: Select all

%localappdata%\Insurgency\Saved\Config\WindowsClient\
and edit

GameUserSettings.ini

search for the line starting by:

OverrideOptions=

and on that line, almost at the end change this values:

("r.Streaming.PoolSize", (Value=400,bModified=True)),("r.Shadow.MaxResolution", (Value=512)),("r.Shadow.MaxCSMResolution", (Value=512)
to
("r.Streaming.PoolSize", (Value=100,bModified=True)),("r.Shadow.MaxResolution", (Value=256)),("r.Shadow.MaxCSMResolution", (Value=256)

---------------------------------------------------------

OLD INSTRUCTIONS - OUTDATED
Well, if you have something near that, if you put the game on low, the game starts to eat RAM until it touches the ceiling, so I found instructions on Reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/insurgency/com ... eriencing/
Do the 7th step ^

I tweaked the configs a bit, with the configs from the reddit my memory stays at 7.5GB ram, with the little tweaks I did stays on 6GB
Unzip this files (download button up to the right)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NW0L6w ... v9A86/view

Then go to

Code: Select all

%localappdata%\Insurgency\Saved\Config\WindowsClient
and backup this files:

Code: Select all

Engine.ini
GameUserSettings.ini
Then, put the files from the zip on that folder and start the game. You should see improvement, at least I played two entire matches, only with some stuttering at certain moments.

Higher power hardware should be benefitted from this as well, it will look like shit, but should go smoother :D
HF!

:D that's the idea!
Lets hope NWI gets the point, and realize not everyone can afford a NASA computer.

The game runs well on the gpu, is just a memory issue :)

But... but.., I bought a NASA computer..!! Well it was on the day Neil Armstrong retired...

My MSI G-series is almost 4 years old and this is the first game where I'm being confronted with the ancient Roman adagium: "don'be a cheap ass, update your hardware!".


UPDATE. 8 gb of extra memory did the job, it's playable now. I hope the extra SSD I'll recieve in a few days will make it more comfy.

UPDATE 2: adding a 500gb SSD exclusivly for my Steamfolder results in a shift from 'playable' to "f'*****g awesome beyond comortable" I can now help to secure point A every game instead of entering the game minutes later than te rest... :dancebanana:

oh well another £20 down the pan, when I get time ztrainer I will pop on discord and discuss shitstorm but nothing I have tried makes any difference at all , and if I cant even use the keyboard and mouse , or an xbox controller , then theres not much hope , it will probably go the same way as squad did , refund please!!!!!
