In this guide we are going to take a look at how you can increase performance in ESO. The Video Guide to better Performance in ESO guides you through the whole process. The video shows the simple tweaks first and then goes onto more advanced methods towards the end!

You can make these changes at your own risk, I do not take any responsibility if something breaks.

Increase Performance in ESO (2019) How to Guide

 

UserSettings Parameters – ESO Performance Tweaks

You should feel a performance increase in ESO once you adjust all the settings below, please make sure to search for each setting individually, don’t just copy paste it into the section. If the order gets screwed up, the whole file might become corrupt and ESO will just create a new one with default settings.

IMPORTANT: Don’t just copy paste the text into the file, search the settings and adjust each number individually!

This doens’t increase performance in ESO but saves you plenty of time :P
