After noticing a slow but sure decline in my gaming experience I decided to do a clean install of Fallout 4. On the the first run of the game to create the .ini files I received a notice that Fallout 4 does not recognize my graphics card and all settings are reverted to low quality. I accepted that and proceed with setting the parameters to "Ultra" and exit the game launcher.
When I opened the newly created .ini files, I found the Fallout4.ini literally void of data except for this one entry:
sD3DDevice="NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti"
In the same directory (Documents\My Games\Fallout 4) The Fallout4Prefs.ini contained the settings I selected during the initial set up procedure.
However, in the game directory (G:\Games\Steam...\Fallout4\Fallout4 I found another Fallout4Prefs.ini file created a few minutes after the .ini file in the "My Games" directory with the "low quality" settings:
Fallout4Prefs. ini in "My Games" Directory:
Fallout4Prefs.ini in Fallout4\Fallout4 Directory:
and many others...
My questions are:
1. How to populate the Fallout4. ini file with the correct parameters?
2. Why two different Fallout4Prefs.ini files? I am not sure which one the game is using. Should I even be concerned about this?
Any assistance on this matter will be much appreciated.
