Black Ops 3 Beta Optimizations

  
  Set the CPU priority to high, here is how to make a shortcut and always launch BO3 in high priority. Don’t alt-tab from the game, appearantly it can break the priority.

In your steamapps folder, locate the BO3 Beta folder and go inside the “players” folder and edit the ini file. Set the value of “ResolutionMultiplier” to 1 instead of 0.85 to get proper pixel ratio and increase visibility.

My kind of gamer
