Age of Wonders 4 – Guaranteed 60 FPS Performance Fix

Wondering why others are getting 60 FPS on max settings with the same hardware but you’re not? Now you (Sort of) know!

Performance Fix to Get 60 FPS

Guide

Tested on a GTX 1060 3GB Era PC

Im not entirely sure why this works but im assuming there’s some sort of bug with the graphics settings, if a dev could leave some input then let us know!

My theory is that it has to do with the lighting or particle effects as my frames would tank on the main menu or anytime there were heavy particle effects on screen.

If this fix works for you then support the game by leaving a rating and message below!
