  • Postprocess quality: Medium
  • Shader quality: Low

Disabling V-SYNC

By default, V-SYNC is enabled. You can disable it via a config file and here is how you do it. Note that this may already be patched by the time you’re reading this. If so, please do us a favor and comment down below — after we verify that it’s patched, we will remove this section from the guide.

  1. Navigate to your Kingdom Come: Deliverance folder (Usually C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonKingdomComeDeliverance)
  2. Create a .txt file named user.cfg
  3. Open the file and add r_vsync=0 to the file
  4. If you want to limit the frame rate, add sys_maxfps=X where X is the number of frames you want the game to be limited to.

Improving RAM Usage

Let’s set the heapsize RAM limit for the game via the launch options in Steam.

  1. Right-click on Kingdom Come: Deliverance in your own Steam library and click on Set Launch Options
  2. Insert your heapsize of choice based on the amount of RAM you want to use.
    • 4 GB: -heapsize 524288
    • 8 GB: -heapsize 1048576
    • 12 GB: -heapsize 1572864
    • 16 GB: -heapsize 2097152
    • 24 GB: -heapsize 3145728
    • 32 GB: -heapsize 4194304

And that’s it! We hope our optimization tips have helped you squeeze some more FPS out of this amazing game.
