BioShock Infinite is here and you want to play it as smoothly as possible with the least amount of glitches and lag. Here is how:
Fix the overly sensitive mouse
The default option for the mouse sensitivity is the second lowest choice available, and the mouse flies around too fast to stop and smell Columbia’s roses. Unfortunately, dropping the mouse to the lowest choice available makes it too slow (at least for many of use). Now, you can muck around for an hour (like some of us did) adjusting your mouse sensitivity through your gaming mouse’s proprietary software, then combining that with the in-game slider. Or you can just edit a config file.
You can edit the ranges of the slider, so you can more precisely alter the speeds:
Now, each tick on the slider will be a more precise change, and you may not have to combine the sensitivity with third-party software.
Widen the field-of-view
You may not notice it at first, but the field-of-view in Bioshock Infinite is actually a little tight. The FOV option only changes the view by around 15%, but with a simple config edit, you can extend the field.
Now, when you start the game, your slider will extend the FOV further than before.
Disable the annoying intro videos
After a long day of work you want to sit down and play some BioShock, not sit through a bunch of company logos. They only take around a minute (if that) to get through, but they’re annoying regardless. Luckily, you can disable them, and get right into the game after you start it up.
When you start the game next, you won’t have to deal with companies barraging you with their logos.
There are widespread reports that the game has a bit of lag of choppiness regardless of how powerful your rig may be. Well, this doesn’t seem to have any sort of reliable fix, but there are a few things that helped me.
BioShock games have harder difficulties unlock after you beat easier ones. However, those of you experienced withe the series will most likely find Infinite a bit easy. In order to avoid wasting a playthrough to get to the good stuff, you can unlock a harder mode right from the start.
