Medieval Dynasty PC Tweaks – How To Get 1080p/60 FPS

Medieval Dynasty PC Tweaks

Medieval Dynasty is a Steam Early Acces title, at the time of writing, and there are bound to be performance issues given that the game is still in development. That is where our Medieval Dynasty PC Graphics Tweaks guide comes in to help players achieve 1080p/60 FPS experience on a mid-range system.

How To Get 60 FPS In Medieval Dynasty

Medieval Dynasty might be in Early Access but in terms of performance, the game is not that bad. Those players who don’t care about FPS can crank the graphics settings up to Ultra on a GTX 1060 and lock the game 30 FPS and they won’t see a drop in FPS.

However, in this Medieval Dynasty PC Graphics Tweaks guide, I’ll be targeting the 60 FPS experience for a mid-range experience. By mid-range, I mean a Core i5 CPU with 8 GB of RAM and a GTX 1060 6GB GPU. The reason why I have chosen a GTX 1060 because it’s still a very capable GPU that can play the latest video games.

Also, I recommend that you install the game on an SSD if you have one. This will not only improve loading times but will also keep the game from stuttering while streaming textures.

The following are the Medieval Dynasty PC graphics options along with their function and a recommend setting for each of the options to get that 1080p/60 FPS experience.

Windowed Mode

Set this option to Fullscreen as it’ll improve FPS but, not by much.

V-Sync

V-Sync or Vertical Synchronization is a display option present in every PC game. This setting synchronizes frames to the player’s display refresh rate to eliminate screen tearing.

I recommend that you keep v.sync off in-game and force it through the GPU driver. To do that, open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game. Select “on” for Vertical Sync and apply the change.

Recommended: Force it through the GPU driver

Frame Rate Limit, How To Lock At 30 FPS

Frame Rate Limit is the option that allows players to lock FPS to either 30 or 60 FPS, or let them unlock FPS to allow the game to render at the highest FPS as the GPU can manage. Since, we are going for a 60 FPS target, set this option to 60.

However, if you prefer graphics over FPS then set this option to 30 and crank the graphics settings to Ultra. However, I recommend that you lock the FPS through the GPU driver. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game. Turn on “Max FPS Limit” and set the value to 30. Apply the change and Medieval Dynasty will be locked at 30 FPS.

Recommended: 60

View Distance

View Distance is a graphics setting that controls the quality of in-game assets that players can see at a distance. The higher the setting the better quality assets that the game will load for faraway objects. Obviously, this will take a toll on performance.

I recommend that you keep this setting on Medium as going above it will cause the FPS to drop.

Recommended: Medium

Anti-Aliasing

Anti-aliasing is the graphics option that removes shimmering and jagged edges or eliminates aliasing from in-game assets. Set this option to Ultra but if you see a dip in performance then drop it to High but, I don’t think it would come to that.

Recommended: Ultra

Post-Processing

The post-Processing graphics option controls a number of in-game effects like depth of field, bloom, and more. These options do cost performance but the hit is not that significant. In the end, it comes down to the players if they want to use these effects. However, players can keep this setting at Ultra.

Recommended: Ultra

Shadows

Shadows option controls in-game shadows cast by objects and NPCs and the quality of shadows at a distance. The higher the setting the better the shadows will be displayed for faraway objects. I recommend that you set it to Medium as the performance cost at High is too high.

Recommended: Medium

Textures

This graphics option controls the quality of in-game textures. The higher the value the better and high-resolution textures the game will load. Keep it at Ultra as a GTX 1060 has ample VRAM.

Recommended: Ultra

Effects

This is also one of the most performance costing graphical settings. Keep it at High and you’ll be good.

Recommended: High

Foliage

Foliage controls the quality and density of grass, trees, and other vegetation in the Medieval Dynasty. This is also one of the most performance taxing options, I recommend that you set it to Medium.

Recommended: Medium

Sharpness

This graphics option controls the sharpness of the image quality. The game is probably using TAA which makes the game look soft. Sharpness can fix the blurriness. As for the recommended setting, this one depends on the player.
