Requires Kingdom Come : Deliverance version 1.2 or +


-Click properties on the link to your KC:D and add
-heapsize 1572864 +exec user.cfg
for example
"C:\Steam\Kingdom Come Deliverance\Bin\Win64\KingdomCome.exe" -heapsize 2097152 +exec user.cfg
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\KingdomComeDeliverance" -heapsize 2097152 +exec user.cfg
for Steam go to your Steam library, right click on the game. Then click "Properties", and then insert the -heapsize 1572864 under Launch options.

Note : 1572864 is for 8Gb RAM ; if you have more use a higher number instead. If you don't know how much RAM you have, you can check it by right-clicking Computer->then select Properties->installed memory
Note : +exec user.cfg will launch the customized file.

-Download and unzip the user.cfg file, copy it to the root of your game folder.
for example
C:\Steam\Kingdom Come Deliverance      or      C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\KingdomComeDeliverance
(or in the mod folder)

Note : If you need to know if you have a core i5 or i7 or AMD processor, you can check it by right-clicking Computer->then select Properties->processor

-If you have a version of KCD below v1.6, then download    BES cpu limit       (thanks for mion /Rinkanali, i hope that they don't mind the link)
Launch your game
Open BES, click the "Target" button, select KingdomCome.exe, select "Limit This", set it to -1% with the slider, click the "Limit/watch" button, click "Yes", click "Close", reduce the BES window.
Enjoy !

-If you have a version of KCD below v1.6, and find that one of your CPU is highly used while other aren't, to balance things open windows task manager->processes tab->right click KingdomCome.exe->Set Affinity->untick the most used CPU->ok->right-click again->add the tick back.
I am still trying to do it automatically with CryEngine (user.cfg).

- If you installed an old version of this mod before, remove (see Removal section) or replace it first.

User.cfg (please download the user.cfg file that suits to your computer ; see the files tab)


Remove user.cfg from the directory


v1.6 Added a file tested on v1.6 (for 8Gb RAM, 3Gb VRam, Core i5).
v1.5          Added a file from dfile for Kingdom Come v1.5
v1.06Better CPU loadbalancing. Enhanced/tweaked shading, anisotropy, antialiasing, lightning, volumetric, shadow, texture. All commands have been checked in the tilde (²) console.
v1.04        Raised e_StreamCgfPoolSize. Added additional notes (heapsize, cursor, SLI/Crossfire fps boost, HD Texture, Shading fps boost). Added a video at Rattay.
v1.02Removed the settings to disable SLI, skip intro, hide/show HUD, commands for system.cfg. Standard set to 2GB VRAM to avoid possible crash for those who don't read the file description.
v1.0   All commands have been checked in the tilde (²) console.

Additional notes

About heapsize :
Source :
Source : (some says it works, some say it doesn't)
Source :       "I can assure you that it DOES. When I remove the line my fps drops an average of 10 frames, and game studders."
I am 100% sure that Windows uses heapsize when set in the launch options, since i had a KC:D crash once with a heapsize value too high with a Windows error message telling that heapsize was set too high. Nobody told that it was for Cryengine.

Cursor settings (the dot in the middle)
wh_ui_ShowCursor 0 -- get rid of the dot
wh_pl_showfirecursor = 1 -- dot for bow only

SLI and CrossFire :
r_MultiGPU = 1 --1 it enables multi-GPU support for SLI and Crossfire; if set to 2 it attempts to auto-detect
check this link too :

HD textures: you need at least 3Gb VRam

Shading :
! Warning ! Do not use with Athlon x2 !
Use it only if you really need fps, because when i tried it there was lightning on some walls instead of shadows.
e_svoTI_Active = -1
