[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


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!!!!!
