View Full Version : ACU is bad with AA / Graphics are bad? What's wrong with you? FPS FIX

I finally got my acu copy and I saw that people were complaining A LOT!
So I tested it by myself.
Everything on the highest I get 30 FPS so I decided not to play on it, so I started searching what is the option killing my frames.
Ambient Occlusion? - NO not even close

Shadows? - hmm not really I put it on low because I barely see a difference between Soft Shadow and low Fps is slightly higher.

Anti Aliasing- uh placing this on 8x will kill the frames so I didn't want to test the other options so I simply turned it of.
Any problems? no! Just the cinematics from the top view were you see allot of details you will see glitchy lines otherwise you barely see AA on or off.
So If you want 30-40 more FPS just turn it off it's not a pain.

Then people said the game looked bad.. I call that a joke!
Be sure you fully installed ACU before playing then start it op the ammount on details on ULTRA HIGH is beautiful.

Running Through city - 60-70
Cut-scene - 35-60
Lot's of details
Inside- 62+

Average/fighting/running IMPORTANT- 55+
And this is without them bringing out patches yet!

I thing after they released some good optimizing patches I will be able to run this game with the same FPS but with Anti Aliasing enabled

My specs
CPU: I7 4770 K (Standard clock 3.5 GHZ)
GPU: MSI GTX 970 4G Gaming (Standard clock)
RAM:Corsair Vengeance 1600 mhz 8GB
HDD:some ****ty old hdd with low write speeds

This should be it
Stop complaining the graphics are bad

so do you have ambient occlusion and AA on or off ?

From what I read he's saying AA is killing the frame rate (which I've read somewhere else as well) and that ambient occlusion and shadows aren't major problems.

So I suppose he's got everything on max except for AA, which he has turned off.

Ambient Occlusion ON on the highest AA off
