Super low Payday 2 config file, FPS Boost on low end PCs (Intel Celeron + IntelHD)

Look at this, look at this game… isn’t
it glorious? Last year I did a video showcasing some of
the mods you can use to reduce your graphics and increase performance on Payday 2. Before that I made a video exploring the configuration
file to improve performance on this game, but don’t watch that, it’s not very good. What is good is this, a configuration file
that will boost performance and force the lowest graphics possible in Payday 2, no needs
for mods or any other tool and I am going to test how it does on this Intel Celeron + IntelHD
combo that I have fallen so much in love with during my last set of videos. Welcome to the LowSpecGamer the show where
I explore ways of reducing graphics and increasing performance so they can be played under the
minimum requirements. And on this episode, we are getting back to
Payday 2 to update the configuration file and get the game running. To start, this video is possible due to this
thread in the LowSpecGamer subreddit, so thank you Tak_Riuto for sharing his configuration
file. The configuration file is linked in the description. To use it all you need to do is to navigate
to your configuration file located in your hidden appData (don’t forget to enable hidden
folders), local, payday 2, and the file is called render settings. Inside this file there is a section called,
once again, render settings which you need to substitute for the one I have left in the
description. This will drop all settings to their lowest
possible level, disable a bunch of effects and lights, and also drop all texture quality
to ridiculously low levels. Let me show the effect this had on my intelHD
test setup. Woah. Ok, I just got dr- Oh, that’s in- woah! Now this is something. Well I’ve certainly never seen the game
like this before. I have no idea what’s going on, I literally
have no idea what’s going on, this looks like a complete different game. So, this is Akemi. You might have seen her name in previous videos
and now she’s a moderator for the Discord channel that you should absolutely join. Oh god, this isn’t going to go well for
anyone, isn’t it? My god! Look! This is fantastic! This is- you can tell a lot about the game
based on the quality of its trees and those are top notch, that’s really impressive. Wow, Akemi is just… hey, leave some for
me! Oh ok, now the party gets started. Oh god! There’s so many of them! Oh god, god god god god. Oh no no no no no no no no no no, this is
not how I die, this is not how I die. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH Yeah, while I’m suffering here, Akemi is
doing all the freaking job and just getting all the money. So many! Ok! Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go, let’s
go, I’m right behind you! Ah run! Run for your lives! Run! Well, that’s insane! That is all for this short video, thank you
to the people in the subreddit contributing to this video! And to the Patreons who donate and you, for
watching… I will see you all in the next video.

    I can't edit it, either.

  65. ShadowDyeman says:

    I was able to get the file working and got a pretty decent FPS boost. However, I can't recommend this file to people who like to try to do stealth missions. With the changes made in the config file, it makes it nearly impossible to do some stealth missions because some of the textures just merge into each other making it hard to spot guards and cameras even if you right next to them. Another thing to mention is that I did this one mission with a guy where we were supposed to rob some sort of art museum and I kept walking through lasers I legit could not see at all thanks to something in the file. we restarted like 5 times before the guy kicked me. I know this video is well gone and done now but I would like it if someone could look into fixing this so we still get a decent FPS boost but can at least tell the difference between a guard and a plaster wall.
