This guide describes how to improve the game’s graphics and at the same time increase the game’s performance.
 
 

What’s wrong with the graphics?

The very first time you play ‘A Plague Tale: Innocence’ you might notice that despite the game’s gorgeous graphics, everything outside your focus seems a little blurry. While some of you may not mind this effect, other players find it very annoying. Unfortunately, you can not disable this distortion in the graphics setting in the game. However, you can disable it in a configuration file.
 
 
 

Access the File

Please note that before you change anything the game should not be running! This should be clear.
 
 
The file in question is located here:
 
 
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\My Games\A Plague Tale Innocence\ENGINESETTINGS
 
 
The file ENGINESETTINGS does not have a file extension but you can open it in any editor. In order to do so search for the file in your Windows Explorer. Copy the following line:
 
 
%userprofile%\Documents\My Games\A Plague Tale Innocence\
 
 
Now open the Windows Explorer by pressing the Windows key and E.
 
Click on the top line and paste the directory path.
 
 
A Plague Tale: Innocence How to Improve Visual Quality + Best Graphics Settings in Game - Access the File - E6010CC
 
 
Press enter and you should see the configuration file.
 
 
A Plague Tale: Innocence How to Improve Visual Quality + Best Graphics Settings in Game - Access the File - C09FF3C
 
 
 

Backup the File

Before we change anything let’s create a backup of the file, just in case something goes wrong or your wish to use the original settings after examining the changes.
 
Select the file (click on it) and press Ctrl & C to copy the file. Then press Ctrl & V to create a copy of the file.
 
 
 

Adjust the Configuration

Right-click on the file ENGINESETTINGS and select Open with.
 
Select Editor.
 
In case you have Notepad++, UltraEdit, TextPad or any other editor you can of course open the file with this as well.
 
 
Now move to the bottom of the file.
 
Here you will find the following section:
 
 

 
{PostProcess
 
Enabled 1
 
EyeAdaptation 1
 
ColorGrading 1
 
Sharpen 1
 
Fringe 1
 
LensDistortion 1
 
Dirt 1
 
LensFlare 1
 
FilmGrain 1
 
Vignette 1
 
LensBlurMultiplier 1.000000
 
FringeMultiplier 1.000000
 
}
 
}
 
 
The setting that causes the blurriness is Fringe. Switch it from 1 to 0 so it looks like this:
 
 

 
{PostProcess
 
Enabled 1
 
EyeAdaptation 1
 
ColorGrading 1
 
Sharpen 1
 
Fringe 0
 
LensDistortion 1
 
Dirt 1
 
LensFlare 1
 
FilmGrain 1
 
Vignette 1
 
LensBlurMultiplier 1.000000
 
FringeMultiplier 1.000000
 
}
 
}
 
 
Save the file and start the game.
 
 
 

Inspect the Changes

Let’s take a look at what has changed.
 
 
Before (with fringe):
 
 
A Plague Tale: Innocence How to Improve Visual Quality + Best Graphics Settings in Game - Inspect the Changes - 9ED56E6
 
 
After (without fringe):
 
 
A Plague Tale: Innocence How to Improve Visual Quality + Best Graphics Settings in Game - Inspect the Changes - F9AD1DF
 
 
Take a look at the leaves growing near the ground left of Amicia. They are blurry with the original settings. Compare the small twigs to the right of Amicia. Everything looks crisper and at the same time graphic performance significantly improves, which means you get more fps (frames per second) with better pictures.
 
 
 

Is there more?

Yes, there’s more. So far we only changed a single setting, the fringe.
 
When I played the game I also disabled:
 

  • DOF
  • MotionBlur
  • LensDistortion
  • LensFlare
  • FilmGrain
  • Vignette

 
Disabling each of these settings improves graphic performance, meaning you get more fps. But of course, tastes are different and while most players hate FilmGrain, there may be some who don’t. So it is up to each of you to decide which setting you like to change. The procedure is the same. Quit the game. Open the file. Deactivated with 0 and activated with 1. Then save and restart the game to check the change.
 
 
If you find this guide helpful, I would appreciate a thumbs up. Thanks!
