Note: Some pcs can and do handle UE4 games on Epic and High. Though not all can.. the above tips and tricks help anyone with the repeated crashing and time outs.. and those that have a lower FPS than the median point of 25 FPS.

GAME ERRORS and FIXES

Issues attacking/harvesting

If you are experiencing issues with your mounts only striking once or twice in upwards of 5 to 10 seconds, you may want to reset your max fps setting. The game is default set to 30 fps instead of 60 fps. The game at higher than 30-40 frames per second starts doing strange things with attacks. The way to fix this problem is:Issues attacking/harvesting.

  1. Go to the console in game (default key is Numpad +)(also called the tab bar)
  2. Type: t.maxfps 30
  3. Enjoy 🙂

BTW Your mount attack speed will be better as well. When above 50 fps, most mount attack speed will be at about 3 seconds in between attacks. After this change most will experience at least an increase of 1.2 seconds in attack speed. (1.2 sec instead of 3 sec)
