  1. gfx-enable-native-gfx-jobs was the line that already existed for me, and it wasn’t set to 0 or 1, it was blank.

  2. Unseen, the 2 min memory thing is a typo. Obviously the one with more zeroes is meant to be max memory.

  3. Holy cow this actually worked, though. My framerate in the intro doubled from 30 minimum to 60 minimum.
