Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty – Best Settings for Limiting Lag & Stuttering

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty isn’t well optimized for PC and many players have been facing lag and stuttering issues.

Thankfully, by altering some settings both on Windows and in-game players can increase their FPS and make the game more stable overall.

In this Wo Long Fallen Dynasty guide, I will list the best settings to help you limit lag and stuttering while also increasing the FPS you get.

For this first option, open your Windows search bar and search for ‘Game Mode settings’. Then, turn Game Mode on.

While this doesn’t work on all games, it seems to improve overall performance with Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and it’s fairly easy to do.

Also, if you have an Nvidia card series 1000 or higher, you can search ‘Graphics Settings’ and enable Hardware Acccelatered GPU scheduling. This boosts FPS slightly by reducing CPU utilization and sending commands directly to the GPU when using multiple apps.

Best GPU Settings for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

In terms of graphics card settings, first of all, make sure to keep your drivers updated. Simply access your GPU’s software and check for available updates there.

Then, for Nvidia cards, access Nvidia Control Panel and make sure you have Low Latency Mode set to on.
