Ok so in game i maxed out the graphics slider but am not sure it's making much of a difference. Can someone tell me what things need to be to max out graphics? Also is there anything i should change in the config?
personally, I'm running full native settings (1920x1080, maximum viewing distance, 150% details - whatever that might actually mean ) and for a 2007 game, it looks fairly nice. However, it is a 2007 game - don't expect miracles
Another option is to further tune your graphic card's settings for the game. Both AMD and Nvidia offer these option in their respective control centers - that way, you can enable even higher anti-aliasing etc. However, I never found these tweaks to do much more than reduce overall performance.
