Add graphics options after the graphics overhaul

JudgementJudgement Member Posts: 789

Title. Basic graphical settings are missing from the game menu and I’m concerned that people may have issues with performance come this graphics update. Of course while For Honor managed to do this without affecting performance at all, across any platforms, it wasn’t really on such a scale as DBD is going to have.

BHVR, when you update the graphics, please add additional graphical settings for people to change and get the performance they want. Anti-aliasing, field of view (it’s up to the player what FOV they want, and up to BHVR to fix the camera issues that may result from it), resolution/screen sizes, colourblind assist, and maybe even a toggle between old and new graphics.

People with weaker PCs, like me with a basic laptop that can run a bunch of games on low, want to play DBD and want to do it without terrible performance. The argument that graphical settings and colourblind assist will give people advantages is baseless because it’s up to the player to determine the graphics settings. Who cares if scratch marks are green, they’re just as visible red or blue, especially if you can easi let change the brightness of the red ones anyway. Who cares if someone increases their field of view or decreases it, when it’s still an option? Who cares about edges and shadows looking all jagged and stuff, when we’re rather have smooth FPS and be able to play the game?

Graphical settings are essential and that the game has gone so long without them is surprising. Should be the next step after Pyramid Head.

    FoW is a perk effect, you cant have it in the options

    An essential graphics setting shouldn’t be a perk effect, and that is certainly no reason as to why it shouldn’t become a graphics setting again. Shadowborn can get reworked, M&A can get changed, and BHVR can stop ignoring the issue by slapping it with bandaids, and just straight-up fix it.

    FoV cannot be changed, the game is very, VERY specially designed around what people are shown in their screens. Adjusting this would require... Well, a completely different game to be made. In DbD, fov isn't an "essential graphics setting", it's a base part of the gameplay that should not be messed with. If people have issues, they should be allowed to adjust other graphics options.
