Toggles fullscreen-as-window mode. Fills screen but allows seamless switching.

sys_spec_TextureResolution

0-4

0

Not recommended to set it to value higher than your available video memory (as per below) because this will cause severe performance issues in the game.

CVar

Values

Default

Notes

sys_highrestimer

0/1

0

Enables high resolution system timer. Can help increase frame rate.

 

Important:

Increases the system wide timer resolution which causes the OS scheduler to respond more instantly. It's not recommended to enable this cvar by default as it can increase CPU usage inside the kernel depending on the OS version, meaning adverse perf impact on lower end machines with not enough cores, increased power consumption, etc.

i_forcefeedback

0/1

1

Enables/disables force feedback for the Xbone/Xbox 360 gamepads.

 

Can either be set in the system.cfg or in the console when being ingame.

gfx_draw

0/1

1

Enables/disables all flash elements in the game (also including the menu). Should only be disabled when trying to create beauty shots of ingame environment.

 

Can either be set in the system.cfg or in the console when being ingame.

r_PostAASharpening

0-4

0.2

With this CVar the image sharpness can be set, e.g. to increase it for getting better quality screenshots. Recommended values are between 0 and 2. Default value is 0.2.

 

Can either be set in the system.cfg or in the console when being ingame.
