After a few delays and waiting, System Shock Remake is finally out on PC, and it’s fantastic. Nightdive Studios continue to impress by remastering, and now remaking classic PC titles for modern audiences. The remake is developed on Unreal Engine 4, and both looks and runs great. Though, if you want to disable the System Shock Remake TAA setting, here is how you can do that.
Disable the System Shock Remake TAA Setting
The in-game options of System Shock Remake don’t let you adjust TAA which means that at the native resolution, you’ll have to face the ghosting, and general blurriness that TAA adds to the image quality in favor of performance. It comes down to personal preference and your hardware, but you can technically disable the setting entirely.
- Open Windows Run by either pressing Windows + R keys together or by searching for it in Windows Search
- Enter the following address, and press OK
%USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\Nightdive Studios\SystemShock\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\
- Here, open the GameUserSettings.ini file using a text editor like Notepad, or Notepad++
- Now, set the value of the following to 0
- Save the file (Ctrl + S) and exit out
That’s all you need to do, and the next time you launch System Shock Remake, TAA will be completely disabled.
Now, this will certainly introduce aliasing, which can be remedied by playing on a higher resolution than your native using DSR/VSR/DLDSR. This will make the image look much cleaner without TAA getting in the way of clarity. Keep in mind though, this will certainly take a hit on performance, but the title isn’t that demanding to begin with.
Turning TAA Back On
If you wish to turn back TAA on, you can easily do that by setting the value of sg.AntiAliasingQuality back to 3.
