Here is how you can change the FOV, disable mouse smoothing, motion blur and more in State of Decay 2

State of Decay 2 has just been released and PC gamers have already figured ways via which they can adjust/tweak the game. Although the game comes with a certain amount of graphics seetings, gamers can further tweak it thanks to its .INI configuration files.

PC gamers can change the Field of View, disable mouse smoothing, disable motion blur, depth of field, lens flares, and enable supersampling.

The .INI configuration files is located at the “%localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.Dayton_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\StateOfDecay2\Saved\Config\UWP” folder. In there, you will find the Engine.ini and the GameuserSettings.ini files.

In order to tweak the aforementioned settings, you’ll have to follow this guide. You’ll also need to set the files as read-only after your changes.
