Borderlands 2: How to Improve Performance with .ini File Tweaks

This video will help you learn how to tweak the .ini files in Borderlands 2 to get better performance out of your pc.

For a comprehensive text guide please go to

Disable Startup Movies

This will allow you to turn off the various logos when the game starts up. They’re already skippable with a quick click, but this allows you to deactivate all of them.

In WillowEngine.ini, find these lines:

[FullScreenMovie]
StartupMovies=2K_logo
StartupMovies=Gearbox_logo
StartupMovies=NVidia
StartupMovies=Loading
SkippableMovies=2K_logo
SkippableMovies=Gearbox_logo
SkippableMovies=Attract
SkippableMovies=NVidia

Then, add a ; in front of each “StartupMovie” line. The result will be this:

[FullScreenMovie]
;StartupMovies=2K_logo
;StartupMovies=Gearbox_logo
;StartupMovies=NVidia
;StartupMovies=Loading
SkippableMovies=2K_logo
SkippableMovies=Gearbox_logo
SkippableMovies=Attract
SkippableMovies=NVidia

And you’re done — none of the usual logos will load when you start up Borderlands 2, and you’ll get into the game quicker.

Disable Framerate Smoothing

This might help you get better performance if you’re having some graphical issues.

In WillowEngine.ini, find this line:

bSmoothFrameRate=TRUE

If it’s set to TRUE, you can disable it by setting it to FALSE, like this:

bSmoothFrameRate=FALSE

Disable Black Outline Shader

You know that big black outline that surrounds most objects and gives them a more cartoonish look? It’s cool, but removing it is another way you can tone down the graphical requirements of Borderlands 2 to get it to run better.

In WillowEngine.ini, find this line:

DefaultPostProcessName=WillowEngineMaterials.WillowScenePostProcess

To turn off the shader, you need to make adjustments to the line — namely, remove both instances of the word “Willow,” so it looks like this:

DefaultPostProcessName=EngineMaterials.ScenePostProcess

Disable Cel Shading

In WillowEngine.ini, find the same line as above:

DefaultPostProcessName=WillowEngineMaterials.WillowScenePostProcess

and change it to:

DefaultPostProcessName=WillowEngineMaterials.RyanScenePostProcess

That will remove the black outline shader as above, and also disable the cel shading effect to make the graphics slightly more realistic and add more contrast on surfaces. You’ll also get a pretty marked performance boost, because these shaders take a fair amount of processing power.
