# Batman: Arkham Knight Tweaking

Looking around for Arkham Knight tweaks, I found the this guide the most helpful.

Just to give you a reference point, I have an Intel i7 950 and an AMD Radeon R9 290, and most notably, the following tweaks seem to have helped me the most:

### 1. Texture Streaming

I've found this to generally be helpful, but I've only tried this on a WD Black and an SSD - your mileage may vary.

BmEngine.ini

[TextureStreaming]
MinTextureResidentMipCount=7
PoolSize=4096
MemoryMargin=192
MemoryLoss=0
HysteresisLimit=11
DropMipLevelsLimit=16
StopIncreasingLimit=12
StopStreamingLimit=8
MinEvictSize=10
MinFudgeFactor=1
FudgeFactorIncreaseRateOfChange=0.5
FudgeFactorDecreaseRateOfChange=-0.4
MinRequestedMipsToConsider=11
MinTimeToGuaranteeMinMipCount=2
MaxTimeToGuaranteeMinMipCount=5
UseTextureFileCache=False
LightmapStreamingFactor=0.1
AllowStreamingLightmaps=False
TextureFileCacheBulkDataAlignment=1
UsePriorityStreaming=True
bAllowSwitchingStreamingSystem=False
UseDynamicStreaming=True
bEnableAsyncDefrag=True
bEnableAsyncReallocation=True
MaxDefragRelocations=256
MaxDefragDownShift=128
BoostPlayerTextures=6.0
TemporalAAMemoryReserve=4.0
ReflectionTexturePoolSize=96

### 2. Upping Maximum Framerate

As my computer couldn't maintain 60fps, I chose to only increase the maximum frame rate.

BmSystemSettings.ini

[SystemSettings]
...
MaxFPS=60
...

BmEngine.ini

[Engine.Engine]
...
bSmoothFrameRate=TRUE
MinSmoothedFrameRate=29
MaxSmoothedFrameRate=62

[Engine.Client]
...
; This is actually your refresh rate, set it to match your desktop's refresh rate and ignore what its name seems to imply
MinDesiredFrameRate=60.0

### 3. Motion Blur and Reflections

I found that turning off Motion Blur and Reflections also helped with frame rates, especially during rain, it does make your cape and the Batmobile less shiny, but sacrifices have to be made.

BmSystemSettings.ini

...
MaxFilterBlurSampleCount=1
...
Reflections=False
AllowImageReflections=False
...
