Rocket League Lag, Ping, FPS Performance Fix (UPDATED)
- 2019.05.16 19:38
Action packed and fast-paced gameplay with stunning visual effects, Rocket League shines a new light on the world of gaming. Developed and published by Psyonix in July 2015 on PC and Play Station 4 then on Xbox, MAC , Linux and Nintendo Switch later on. With the budget just under 2 million dollars the official development started in 2013.
Psyonix managed to put rocket powered cars and soccer together creating a very different type of eSport game. Upon release Rocket League quickly grasped attention of many worldwide because of its unique design. Unfortunately, its concept is not so new, it is actually a sequel to the less known "Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars". Lead developer Dave Hagewood sold the company to Epic Games and announced that Psyonix will have more resources to support Rocket League eSport and by the end of 2019 and that the game will be available exclusively on Epic Store from then on.
Rocket League Video Options Guide
One of many things we love in Rocket League its ability to still look amazing even though we reduced the options on the low. In this short guide we are going to help you optimize your in-game video options to work best on your machine.
In case you are in a rush we have also prepared a 3 minute video guide for you here!
Resolution and Aspect Ratio - like in every other game, resolution change has the biggest impact on performance and quality.
Display Mode sets the mode your game will run in (Fullscreen, Windowed or in some cases Windowed Fullscreen. When is full screen, you computer will only render and run the game at the native monitor resolution or the one you have selected under Video settings.
V-Sync or Vertical Synchronization is an option in Rocket League that enables the application to synchronize in game frame rate with monitor refresh rate. It impacts performance, but in any case we suggest to turn it off.
Basic Video Settings
Anti-Aliasing makes rough objects in-game appear more realistic in the background because it smoothens out the edges of textures, anti aliasing consumes a fair amount of processing power.
Render Quality gives you control over the game rendering resolution and the amount of GPU power consumption, modify accordingly to your graphics card processing power.
MAX FPS limits the amount of frames your game can achieve. The higher the FPS, the lower the input lag a lot of the time, but since it's an online game it's hardly noticeable.
Advanced Video Settings
Texture Detail is a basic option that lets you modify how much detail you want to go in texture rendering.
Particle Detail adjusts the quality of visible particles, it is not a much noticeable difference in a fast paced game such as Rocket League, but it does mildly affect performance.
High Quality Shaders probably affects performance the most in Rocket League, only suggested to top tier builds.
Ambient Occlusion is a very smart 3D lightning rendering option. It calculates the amount of brightness the object should have based on geometry. Although it used to be too much to handle back in 2007, nowadays its fairly common to use AO in-game, but since it affects performance we suggest to turn it off.
Rest of the lightning options are pretty much self explanatory, and when combined they do use up processing power, so reorganize as you wish.
