Remnant From The Ashes has launched for PC and consoles. While not much of the game can be tweaked on consoles, PC is a very different story. The following are some tweaks for Remnant From The Ashes PC version to get you to that 1080p/60 FPS experience.


How To Get 60 FPS In Remnant From The Ashes

Remnant From The Ashes has it’s fair share of errors and issues, see our errors and fixes guide. However, not all have a high-end system to play a game at 60 FPS at Ultra settings. In my Remnant From The Ashes PC Tweaks guide, I will take you step by step on how you can boost performance and ensure a 1080p/60 FPS experience.

Boost Performance

With so many PC configurations out there, there are bound to be performance issues for some even if the game is optimized. The Following steps will potentially boost Remnant From The Ashes PC performance.

Make sure you are using the latest GPU drivers and that no background process is using too much of your CPU, GPU, or HDD. End the process if it’s using as it’ll cause FPS drops.

First, launch the game turn-off in-game v.sync and then close the game. Then open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Remnant From The Ashes from the list and make the following changes which at least should eliminate stuttering.

Anti-aliasing-FXAA – “Off”
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – “Off”
Anti-aliasing Mode – “Application Controlled”
Anti-aliasing-Transparency – “Off”
CUDA GPUs – “All”
Low Latency Mode – depends on the player, it basically reduces input latency
Max Frame rate – Enable it if you intend to limit FPS. Also, limiting the FPS will reduce GPU Load.
Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA) – “Off”
OpenGL Rendering GPU – “Auto”
Set Power Management to “Prefer Maximum Performance”
Shader Cache – “On” only if you are using an HDD. Don’t need to enable it for an SSD.
Set Texture filtering – Quality to “High Performance”
Triple Buffering – “Off”
Set Vertical Syn to “On”
Virtual Reality Pre-Rendered Frames – “Use 3D Application Settings”.

If you own at least a GTX 10 series GPU with a decent enough CPU then Open Nvidia Control panel > Manage 3D Settings> Program Settings. Select the game from the list and set Vertical Sync to “Fast”.

Start the game and disable Vertical sync and Nvidia’s setting will take over. This will give an FPS boost to Remnant From The Ashes on PC if you have moderate enough GPU and CPU.

How To Disable VOIP/Voice Chat

Remnant From The Ashes has voice chat enabled by default and players can’t disable it from the menu. Here is a workaround to disable it.

Go to “%LOCALAPPDATA%\Remnant\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor” and open Engine.ini in notepad. Just add the following at the bottom and save it as this will disable the VOIP or voice chat in-game.


How To Get 1080p/60 FPS

Remnant From The Ashes isn’t one of those games that are designed for 60 FPS gameplay experience. However, playing the game at 60 FPS is definitely a good thing.

Here I will discuss each and every graphical setting in the game and will provide you with optimal settings for a 1080p/60 FPS experience on a mid-range PC. Note that by mid-range I mean, Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB paired with an Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM. By low-end I mean Nvidia GTX 1050 with Core i3 7th-gen or older.

Shadow Distance
This Remnant From The Ashes graphical setting determines shadow quality for faraway objects. Obviously, this graphical setting demands a lot of GPU VRAM which the GTX 1060 6GB is able to provide.

However, if you do face performance issue then this setting should be your first choice to turn down. Note that for low-end systems, this setting might need to be turned down entirely.

Best Image Quality: 100
Performance: 50
Recommended: 70

Shadow Quality
This one determines the overall quality of shadows in Remnant From The Ashes. This is a taxing graphical setting and even more so for a low-end PC.

While it’s not confirmed, at the time of writing, but it’s likely that ambient occlusion setting is tied to Shadow Quality.

Best Image Quality: Ultra
Performance: Medium
Recommended: High

Antialiasing the graphical setting that removes the aliasing or jagged edges in the game and makes the image much more presentable. However, this requires significant computational power.

If you are using a GTX 1060 with a Core i3 CPU 7th-gen or older, then you might be bottlenecking your GPU. In that case, keep the anti-lasing on medium and increase it if you see there is no drop in performance.

Best Image Quality: Ultra
Performance: Medium
Recommended: Ultra

View Distance
This graphical setting in remnant From The Ashes determines the level of texture quality for faraway objects. This setting takes a lot of VRAM and can drop performance on a low-end system. For a low-end system, keep this setting at medium or low.

Best Image Quality: Ultra
Performance: Medium
Recommended: Ultra

Texture Quality
This setting is self-explanatory as it controls the quality of textures. As you increase this setting, it will demand more VRAM which a low-end system might not be able to provide so keep it at medium or High for low-end systems.

Best Image Quality: Ultra
Performance: High
Recommended: Ultra

Post Processing
This graphical setting determines effects like depth of field, chromatic aberration, and bloom. It’s up to you if you like playing the game with effects like Depth of field and chromatic aberration.

Best Image Quality: Ultra
Performance: High
Recommended: High

This graphical setting determines the quality of particle effects. In some areas of the game, this setting being on Ultra can have an impact on performance.

Best Image Quality: Ultra
Performance: High
Recommended: High

Foliage Quality
Foliage Quality determines the quality of trees, grass, and other plants in-game. Other than quality, it also dictates if the plants will react to player movements.
