    Just a few i found you can edit you cant edit in the game menu.
    Open the hardware_settings_config in Documents and edit these lines.

    <graphics_detail level="high" />
    <vehicles characterQuality="4" lodQuality="3" />
    <envmap faces="4" size="512" forceBilinear="true" />
    <water update="true" detail="1" />
    <mirrors enabled="true" forceBilinear="true" width="512" height="128" car_maxlod="4" car_culldist="100.0" />

    Anyone who can mannage to find more pls post here.
  2. yea any general performance enhancing tweaks would be awesome, I'd like to run medium car reflections (so the mclarens don't look like gray poop) but NOT have mirrors since mirrors give me a big performance hit. is this possible?

    system is a asus g72gx, p8700(core2duo) 2.53ghz, nvidia gtx260m, so not the highest end thing out there. runs f1 2010 w/ everything on medium but 2011 is just a little much for it. have to put everything on low =\. So I'd like to know anyway to turn up some of the important things (cars, drivers, track surface) and turn down things like trees/crowds/stuff that you go by at 300kph and won't be looking at anyway.

    You need to edit this
    <mirrors enabled="true" to false
    then i would play around with vehicles characterQuality
  4. cool thanks
  5. Do mirrors have a performance hit ??
  6. <graphics_detail level="ultra" />
  7. Mine:

    <gamma level="1.2" />
    <textures lod="99" /> - level of distance of textures, default 0, you can go up to 99
    <graphics_detail level="ultra" /> - ULTRA ONLY FOR DX11 card, for DX9 card set to "high"
    <shadows enabled="true" size="4096" maskQuality="2" /> - default shadows are 2048x2048, 4096x4096 - sharper shadows.
    <headlights headlightQuality="2" /> - default is 0, enhances quality of lights, 2 is max.
    <particles enabled="true" wind="true" />
    <crowd enabled="true" detail="1" />
    <cloth enabled="true" detail="1" />
    <postprocess enabled="true" blur="true" quality="2" uid="4" />
    <groundcover mode="blended" clutter="true" />
    <objects lod="2.0" maxlod="0" /> default 1.5, enhances level of distance of objects
    <trees lod="2.0" maxlod="0" /> default 1.5, enhances level of distance of trees
    <vehicles characterQuality="4" lodQuality="3" />
    <envmap faces="6" size="1024" forceBilinear="false" /> - you can put size to 3072 but you need to have ULTRA HIGH END RIG.
    <water update="true" detail="2" />
    <mirrors enabled="true" forceBilinear="false" width="2048" height="512" car_maxlod="0" car_culldist="500.0" />
    <skidmarks enabled="true" />
    <dynamic_ambient_occ enabled="true" />
    <track_reflections enabled="true" />
    <physics environmentalDamage="true" vehicleDamage="true" />
    <motion enabled="true" ip="dbox" port="20777" delay="1" extradata="0" />
    <led_display nativeSupport="true" />
  8. i bet that's pretty but that doesn't remotely help people with slightly older vid cards Mysho
  9. Impossible to disabled mirrors?
