Improve Kingdom Under Fire 2's Graphics

I had the chance to try Kingdom Under Fire 2 this week. Kingdom Under Fire 2 is a fun action MMORPG/RTS to play. The graphics of the game are sufficient but it needs to be improved a bit.

With a few settings on the Nvidia Control Panel, I made the game visually better. Of course fps has dropped a little but the FPS was around 70 on GTX 1070 and i7 4790k. You can also find many of the settings below in AMD Radeon Software.

How can I further improve my graphics quality in Kingdom Under Fire II?

First of all, adjust the in-game video settings like this.

Overall Quality: Uncheck
Texture Quality: High
Terrain Quality: High
Shader Quality: Very High
Shadow Quality: Very High
Post-processing Quality: Very High
Anti-aliasing: SMAA
Motion Blur: Disable
HDR: Enable
Light Scattering Effect: Enable
Shallow Focus: Enable
SSAO: Enable
Shadows: Enable

You should also uncheck the Preset on the Screen Calibration section and set the Saturation to 1.30. So the colors will be more vivid. Then, apply the changes and exit the game.

Now head to "Manage 3D Settings" in Nvidia Control Panel.

  • Click the Program Settings
  • Click the Add
  • Select the Kingdom Under Fire II from the list, then click on the “Add Selected Program” button.
  • After, adjust the following settings

Anisotropic filtering: 16x
Antialiasing - FXAA: On
Antialiasing - Mode: Enhance the application setting
Antialiasing - Setting: 8x
Antialiasing - Transparency: 8x (supersample)
Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA): On
Power management mode: Prefer maximum performance
Texture filtering - Anisotropic sample optimization: Off
Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias: Clamp
Texture filtering - Quality: High quality
Texture filtering - Trilinear optimization: Off

Apply the changes.

In addition, to better image quality, you can use the Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR). The DSR can be used with other antialiasing settings to improve image quality. And of course, the DSR requires a high-end PC.

You can also try these Nvidia settings in all other games. I don't know how much it will work, but you can just try.

That's all. Have fun!
