If you have an old computer or if you want to be faster in Path of Exile races, you should optimize some parameters. This will improve the graphic performance and the load times if you switch between areas.

Here is what you have to do:

  • Open Windows Explorer and go to
C:\Documents and Settings\[User]\My Documents\My Games\Path of Exile

or

C:\Users\[User]\Documents\My Games\Path of Exile

depending on your version of Windows

  • Make a copy of the file production_Config.cfg
  • Open the file in your favourite editor.
  • Search for the [Display] section and replace it with these values:
[DISPLAY]
antialias_mode=0
borderless_windowed_fullscreen=false
fullscreen=true
post_processing=false
resolution_height=600
resolution_width=1024
screen_shake=false
shadow_type=no_shadows
texture_filtering=1
texture_quality=3
vsync=true
  • Save the file and restart Path of Exile

Of course, you can play around with these settings to optimize for your hardware.

Note: These settings are for very old computers.

Note2: The parameter that has the most influence on loading times is texture_quality, the higher the value the faster the areas will load.
