Default [HOW TO] Disabling dynamic shadows, gain 20-40 fps!

Search your config on
Documents > My Games > Borderlands 2 > WillowGame > Config
Open up WillowEngine.ini
Search for [SystemSettings]
change it to
"DynamicShadows=False" (without the " )

congratulations you just gain a LOT of fps, this made my game from unplayable when shooting things to pretty playable when shooting things
You can edit other options there, like bloom, lens flare, distortion, and other stuff i did not know what does that do

they should update the video settings so there's a turning off shadow function and those light/ray effects, those things kills my fps
