COD Ghost Tweaks -

Ghost Tweaks - NOTE ALWAYS KEEP A NOTE OF ALL CHANGES MADE ESPECIALLY THE CONFIG_MP.CFG FILE BEFORE CHANGING SETTINGS --> BACK IT UP<

How to Fix FPS -

1 - FPS Drops Randomly –
To fix drastic FPS drops (during death, leaning) try this fix.

*If FPS drops while playing in Fullscreen, go to the video option.
*Change to Windowed (No Border)

2 - Low FPS –
Due to memory leak issues, running background programs or overlays (FRAPS) will cause performance issues.

*Close any background programs/overlays (FRAPS) – Try running Steam in Offline Mode or disabling Steam Overlay.

Alter these settings to improve FPS:
*Distortion: No
*Motion Blur: No
*Depth of Field: Off
*Terrain Detail: Off

3 - Mouse Acceleration / Stuttering FPS –
Currently, Ghosts will stutter when set to “High Priority” — alter the settings with these steps:

*Open Task Manager (TaskMgr – Ctrl+Alt+Del).
*Scroll and find iw6mp64_ship.exe
*Right click on iw6mp64_ship.exe, then Set Priority: Normal.

Select the CoD: Ghosts .exe and set priority to normal to help fix FPS performance issues.

Windows 8.1 currently causes problems for some users. Check these Mouse Control Panel settings for a temporary fix:
*Do not set “Enhance Pointer Precision” to ON.
*Do not set any mouse “Acceleration” options to ON.

Other programs running in the background, such as FRAPS, can cause problems with mouse acceleration.

4 - Unable to Connect Online –
If your NAT settings are “Strict” or “Normal” you may be unable to connect to online matches. To fix:

*Deactivate Windows Firewall
*Activate Port Forwarding – Check out the extensive guide here - http://portforward.com/english/routers/p…n_Warfare_3.htm

5 - Missing .dll Files –
If a message appears stating you are missing one or several .dll files (Msvcr100.dll, Msvcr110.dll or Msvcr120.dll), download and install the latest DirectX & Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable

6 - Avoid Low Ping Servers -

*Exit COD GHOST PC
*With notepad or your fav text editor
Open this file \Call of Duty Ghosts\players2\config_mp.cfg
For me it was in D:\Games\steam\steamapps\common\\Call of Duty Ghosts\
*change seta cl_maxPing "800" to seta cl_maxPing "150"
*Exit text editor
*Restart COD GHOST PC
*Search for a game with lower ping , if you cant find games
increase to 200 instead of 150

Tip: Might be a good idea to make a backup copy of the config_mp.cfg file before changing it

7 - NVIDIA Control Panel - A MUST DO -

Step 1: Open up NVIDIA Control Panel from your taskbar, and click the "Manage 3D Settings" option.

Step 2: Click the "Program Settings" tab and add the iw3mp.exe COD 4 executable.

Step 3: Set your settings to the following:

*Maximum pre-rendered frames: 1 for faster mouse and keyboard response time, 3 for better FPS
*Multi-display/mixed-GPU acceleration: Single display performance mode OR Multiple display performance mode
*Power management mode: Prefer maximum performance
*Texture Filtering - Anisotropic sample optimization: OFF
*Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias: CLAMP OR ALLOW
*Texture filtering - Quality: QUALITY OR HIGH PERFORMANCE
*Texture filtering - Trilinear Optimization: ON
*Threaded optimization: ON

8 - DirectX encountered an unrecoverable error.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is a DX11 ONLY game.

PC's that can not use DX11 are not supported.
•You need the nVidia GPU 400 series or higher.
•You need an Intel Integrated GPU that supports DX11.
•You need the AMD 5000 series or above.


If you have anything below these Specs the game will not run.


9 - The game doesn't start. "STOPPED WORKING" error

Unplugg all your usb connections and put them back in. Turn off ambx gaming lights.


10. As soon as you click the play button (Single Player), it will update the single player, then it starts updating Multiplayer, wipes all data and makes you redownload the 20 GB all over again.

This problem won't happen if you select to install the MP first and then the SP.

Warning : You need to backup the preload before you do anything on the install part, once if the install is started with SP as first, the preload files are screwed up and can't be used again. So before installing MP/SP, make a backup of the preload files.

11 - Ghost in game FOH is set at 65 based on the Consule, PC should be Higher MW2/MW3 80 was considered a good starting point. Try this first and adjust to suite you -

seta cg_chatTime "14000" Default is "1200". Time chat stays on screen before disappearing.
seta cl_maxPing "200" Default is 800. To ensure you find a good-ping server.

Best Antialiasing Settings ***
Try one of these different antialiasing settings combinations which have been found to give good results.
Combination 1: In game menu set 2x TXAA, then in NVidia Inspector set Antialiasing Compatibility Bits (DX1x) 0x01000000 and Antialiasing Mode Enhance Application Settings + 4x Multisampling.
Combination 2: In game menu turn off all antialiasing, then in NVidia Inspector set NVidia Predefined FXAA Usage to Allowed and Toggle FXAA On or Off to On.
Combination 3: In game menu set SMAA, then in NVidia Inspector set Antialiasing Mode to Enhance Application Settings and Antialiasing Transparency Supersampling to 2x or 4x Supersampling.

NVidia Specific
In NVidia Control Panel, the Power Management Mode may be better for you set to Adaptive, or may be better for you set to Prefer Maximum Performance. Adaptive has done really well in recent tests.

Other
- Some testing has shown some slowdowns related to muzzle flashes.
- There may be be an audio conflict between the AMD on board HDMI audio and the game. The AMD HDMI audio can be disabled in Device Manager. There may be a conflict with motherboard onboard audio as well.
