How to skip the game starting the 2K launcher, which may help a little bit with the performance.
How to Improve Performance
Find a way to TheQuarry.exe file on your computer, it is usualy located in your Steam library.
- X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Quarry\TheQuarry.exe
X = Your disc name/letter
If you have a custom place for your Steam library, you definitely know how to find it and do not need any guide.
- 1) Run Steam client, go to your Steam library and right click The Quarry.
- 2) Select “Properties…”.
- 3) The very first window that appears contains a “LAUNCH OPTIONS” section.
- 4) Copy + paste the path to your TheQuarry.exe file with quotation marks and add %command% at the end.
“D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Quarry\TheQuarry.exe” %command%
Close the window, run the game and BAM! No 2K launcher and slightly better performance!
If you still have issues with lags and out-of-sync cutscenes, make sure the game is installed on SSD if you have one.
Lowering Texture and foliage quality also helps.
