Additional Notes

  • To use DSR resolutions you will need to set this in the ..\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Square Enix\Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY\BmGame\Config\BmEngine.ini file. Under the [SystemSettings] section change the resolution values to your desired DSR resolution such as:

    ResX=5120
    ResY=2880
    

    While there you can modifying the following settings (pulled from the Tweak Guide) to improve the graphics further.

    DepthOfField=False  
    MaxAnisotropy=16
    ShadowFilterQualityBias=0
    MinShadowResolution=32
    MaxShadowResolution=2048 
    // change to '1024' for faster performance, '3072' or above for better quality
    ShadowFadeResolution=5
    ShadowFilterRadius=5.000000
    SkeletalMeshLODBias=-1
    ParticleLODBias=-1
    // these last two settings affects LoD (Level of Details) which reduces quality of meshes and particles the further the camera is from them. Something far away doesn't need to be as detailed as something which is right in front of the camera. This is made to improve performance, but can introduce some popping. The -1 settings disable LoD altogether, which is very performance hungry!
    
    Press Ctrl+F and search for MemoryPools.
    Under [MemoryPools] make the following changes:
    
    FLightPrimitiveInteractionInitialBlockSize=1024
    FModShadowPrimitiveInteractionInitialBlockSize=1024
    // you can use higher values than that but it will makes the loading screens longer, but will reduce textures and static shadow popping.
    

    Remember to save the changes and set the file to read only so it doesn't get overridden.

  • For depth buffer access in Reshade you will need to use thalixte's dll. See post #703 on Reshade.me for details but you will need to install Reshade as normal and replace the .DLL with this new one. Make sure to set RESHADE_DEPTH_INPUT_IS_REVERSED=0 and tick the following settings under the DX9 menu.

    Preserve depth buffer from being cleared
    Auto preserve
    find best depthstencil based on vertices
    
  • Useful keybinds can be added to ..\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Square Enix\Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY\BmGame\Config\BmInput.ini file at the end of the [Engine.PlayerInput] section. Set the file to read only.
