Aliens Fireteam Elite: How to Remove Muzzle Flashes and other Annoying Effects

Here is a guide on how to remove Muzzle Flashes and other Annoying Effects.

 

Why Do?

It helps with FPS drops in a lot of cases, especially when PUPS is deployed. That damn thing was a bane of my existence – would be playing just fine and then my recon buddy tosses PUPS.. both I and Xenos instantly get a debuff of becoming slower and dumber: Y

AND it removes all of the blinding muzzle flashes! A great deal if you’d ask me!



How to Remove?

You will need to go to ..\AppData\Local\Endeavor\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor folder and find the Engine.ini file, then open it with any text editor.

Paste this at the end:

[SystemSettings]
FX.MaxCPUParticlesPerEmitter=0
FX.MaxGPUParticlesSpawnedPerFrame=0

Save the file.
To revert – simply remove the lines from this file.

Additional setting:

If you wish to remove darkened edges of the screen (and have it clear like on my screenshots) then you should paste the following instead:

[SystemSettings]
r.Tonemapper.Quality=0
FX.MaxCPUParticlesPerEmitter=0
FX.MaxGPUParticlesSpawnedPerFrame=0

What’re the Cons?

1: You won’t see the flames of your teammates (But who am I kidding, you are most likely playing with my modded bots o-o)

2: When you are placing turrets/mines/consumables it won’t show you the “hologram” of the thing. So you’ll have to learn to place them without relaying on that.
