Right when the game released yesterday, I did an almost-immediate lookup for the game’s INI file. The engine ini file is located in the following:
Documents\my games\Borderlands 3\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor with the file name being GameUserSettings.ini
You can change pretty much everything at the engine level in this INI. But for right now I’m gonna focus on a couple of main things:
Can’t load into the game? Search the INI for
PreferredGraphicsAPI=DX12 and change it to DX11 (case sensitivity is important here), save and relaunch!
Want to launch BL3 on your Primary Monitor? Again, search the INI for
bPrimaryIsPreferredMonitor=. If it shows False, change it to True, S&R.
You can also set your screen height and width by default through two lines:
ResolutionSizeY= Change these to your monitor’s settings, S&R.
Editing an Ini file, if done wrong; can and WILL break your game. Make sure to backup this file before you begin editing.
edit 09/14/2019 - some users are reporting the frame rate issues are resolved by entering
-HIGH -USEALLAVAILABLECORES into the command line argument for BL3. TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
I can be found on the Borderlands Discord if you need any help, my tag is MikeOHara#9086. I can also be reached on most social media platforms @michaelpohara
Have fun, and enjoy BL3 and LOOT LOOT LOOT
