##### New computer. Would like some settings advice please.
« on: June 12, 2020, 12:08:43 PM »

I have a new computer and it's a fairly good one I think. I can run Great Battles on ultra on everything and the fps shows two sets of numbers. 59 over 67 Not sure what that means but anyway, with a good graphics card what is the best settings for the game? In game I get the good fps but it seems like when moving the camera on the outside view, it seems blurred. Also, the radio wires on the P-38 look like 1946's blocky wire.

59 over 67 means 59 FPS and 67 degrees FoV.

Hi Bombsaway!
These settings will be optimal in my opinion.
Video Card:

Smoothing Options - 4x or 8x (If a powerful graphics card)
"Smoothing - transparency" - 2x or 4x (If a powerful graphics card)
"Smoothing - mode" - Replacing application settings

Eh... no!
Despereaux, Mark was talking about IL-2 Great Battles, not IL-2 1946.

Mark, the only valid and dead simple advise for Nvidia Settings and IL-2 Great Battles is this:
Don't touch anything in Nvidia settings, leave it at defaults.
All settings are to be made in IL-2 Great Battles itself.
The only thing you can touch if you want to, but it won't change a thing usually, is the Power Settings: You can set these to "Prefer Maximum Performance" for IL-2 Great Battles, but the driver will choose the performance powerscheme automatically on demand anyway.
Ignore any advice to change further settings in the Nvidia Control Panel.
Whatever else you touch there, it will only make matters worse in IL-2 Great Battles.
Really.
Seriously.
Definitely.
Anyone saying any other is talking plain bull.

Oh oh! A thousand apologies!
All right. In modern games, everything is set up in the games themselves.
Should I delete a post?

Thank you DESPEREAUX for trying. Thanks Mike for you advice as always. My mistake. I was meaning the settings in the game itself. Such as shadows, grass, clouds and so on. The graphics setting for Great Battles. I should have been more clear in what I was asking. My apologies. If anyone would have some advice for those settings, I would be grateful.

In game I get the good fps but it seems like when moving the camera on the outside view, it seems blurred.

Settings > Camera > External view > Cinematic (uncheck)

My settings for a budget desktop PC with 1050Ti:

My 4.006 settings:

Latest game patches (4.006e in particular) introduced some severe FPS issues with clouds @high/extreme, so my current 4.007 settings have clouds @medium and Antialiasing @2.
