Do you experience poor performance while ground branching is being done? This guide MAY a*sist you.


Good morning and welcome to the guide.
Ground Branch is currently poorly optimised at the time I am writing this. While playing the game, it was apparent that the game allocates all resources to your processing unit. This leaves your GPU to do the bulk of the work. This guide will basically force your GPU to kick in and HOPEFULLY improve performance.
Disclaimer: – This workaround may not be for everyone. It all depends what your hardware is.

Engage in overdrive

It's time for the GPU's to be forced to do its job by increasing the resolution. You will need access to your GPU control panels. This guide will only work with Nvidia GPUs. You can however enable the same setting for AMD GPUs.
1. Open Nvidia Control Panel
2. Manage 3D Setting and ensure you are on global settings
3. Scroll down and find "DSR – Factors". Click on it to activate it.
(If you are using a 1080p display, select 1.78xDL.

4. Click Apply settings
5. Navigate into program settings while Nvidia control panel is active
6. Add Ground Branch into program settings
7. Select "Power management mode" to select "Prefer maximum Performance"

8. Click Apply and close the control panel
The hard part is over. Move on!

In-game settings

After you have opened the game, go into video/graphics in the settings menu. Copy the settings in this image.
For those who are not able to see the image
Resolution: 2560×1440
Screen mode – full Screen
VSync: false
Anti-Aliasing: TAA (Temporal)
Screen Space Reflections Offered
Shadow quality (medium if fps are dipping, hardware dependent)
Use simplified character shadows: no
Texture quality. Epic(. If you have less than 8GB VRAM, I recommend selecting high).
Foliage quality: low
Effects quality: medium
Post process quality: low

If you follow this guide, your frame rate will hopefully improve to a level where the game is playable and offers a smoother user experience. This is again down the hardware in your computer. If the game is still slow, check for chip set driver and GPU drivers. Remove any resource-hogging programs and install additional RGB lighting.
Bonus tips
If you experience frame timing issues or stuttering in your game, you can apply an FPS Cap via your GPU Control Panel. I experienced frame timing issues and high 60's-70's when I used the workaround. The issue was significantly reduced by setting a cap at around 74%/75 frames. This may vary depending on what your hardware is and what monitor you have.
If screen tearing is a problem, enable GSync/Freesync and activate VSync IN YOUR GPU ACCESS PANEL, NOT ON GAME! This will eliminate screen tearing and won't cause input delays.
That's all. Thank you for reading!
