Cyberpunk 2077Launching has been plagued by complaints about performance issues, glitches, bugs, etc., but one file structure edit may fix some issues with your game’s PC.
Cyberpunk player “The Phoenix Royal” posted a strange fix on Reddit. This shows that even high-end PCs can be dragged down by some suspicious standard settings in the game’s configuration files.
Many PC performance issues seem to be due to CD Projekt Red allocating the same amount of memory and VRAM to the PC as if the game was being played on an Xbox or PlayStation.
Once the issue was resolved, Redditor found that the game could run and load much faster, and various graphics settings could be much higher than before. The comments in the thread also suggest that other players have had similar success after modifying the file.
ThePhoenixRoyal outlined how to jump to these configuration files and mess with them yourself. Be aware that jumping into a config file risks crashing your game or Windows. Continue at your own risk and understand the dangers associated with digging into files in this way.
