TERA FPS FIX!!! (nvidia only)

Jun 19, 2013 1:13 pm
Ok i don't know it any1 have same problems, but with nvidia i had huge lags in dugneons and nexus :) so now even on high settings i have no problem with lags. this is my guide (Que) so if you going to post its somewhere else, please don't forget to write where you took it from..

1st step: Download Nvidia inspector From here and install it.
2nd step: Open nvidia inspector and press Driver settings (two screws), then just type in TERA if they will find tera.exe or tera profile select it and delete.

4th step: Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\TERA\Client\S1Game\Config" and delete the following files.


Start your game up so the S1 files get renewed.
Now use the following ini tweaks.

1.) Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\TERA\Client\S1Game\
2.) Make a backup of the S1Engine file.
3.) Open up S1Engine
4.) Press F3 to use the search function to easily find the following lines and change them to the following settings.

UseMinimalNVIDIADriverShaderOptimization=True<----> UseMinimalNVIDIADriverShaderOptimization=False
Dont change the above line if you have ATI,since i don't know the effects of what will happen with ATI cards,only for Nvidia users.

bDisablePhysXHardwareSupport=True <-----> bDisablePhysXHardwareSupport=False
(Only for Nvidia )

( Your Min - Max FrameRate may be set lower or higher according to what your system is capable of and the fps your have right now.)

Now close the file,rightclick it,select properties and check the box that says Read Only,press ok and do the same for all other S1 files in that folder so nothing gets changed automatically.

I read that someone recommended to install new video codes (ex. k-lite ) when they have issues with flash player will check later on.

edit: Installed new K-lite codes 8.7.0 and:
1. Make limit to 10MB http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...manager03.html
2. ADDED folder with TERA http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...manager04.html

Now I no longer have 'lag/delay' while opening skills inventory or options. Anyway friends from my guild told me that there was some update around 2MB but i didn't saw any update on my launcher ;O

Everything is fine now and running smoothly with or without UI. I'm running the game in 80FPS tops and 40-60FPS in Velika.

    That trick helps in a lot of games... but I still dont get it... Discrete Graphics Adapter and the Integrated one running at the same time?

    it turns off your main card and turns in integrated video card. so this "trick" helps you to keep your main card "aka nvida" on.

    hm... sounds like something related to the LucidVirtu MVP program.... Use the integrated one when you are not playing... that way you save tons of power... lol!

        Yes. Nvidia video cards aren't good optimized with Tera Online, so this guide let you release all your video card power ;D
