Is there a way to completely disable SSAO?
So I am running Chivalry on an older rig with a modest dual-core processor and the SSAO is really bringing down my performance. You can set SSAO to low but it does not appear to turn “off” or set to “false” (which I presume means “off”). Anybody have a solution?
I saw that there is an “SSAOQuality” line in the UDKSystemSettings file in My Documents. It says “SSAOQuality=2,” which when playing around with this setting is the equivalent of “low.” Can it be set to “false?” Or is there an easier way to just run Chivalry in DX9?
There is a line for AmbientOcclusion=True/False. I can only presume that that affects SSAO? I don’t know enough about the technology if it’s possibly for two different kinds of AO to work in concurrence. Most likely not I would think…
Chivalry only runs in DirectX 9. You can run it in windowed mode to confirm in the window’s title “Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (32-bit, DX9)”.
