Set around the murky and neon-tilted cityscapes, Stray is an aesthetically pleasing game to play. This might be due to the forced TAA setting coded into this video game. TAA is an acronym for Temporal Anti-Aliasing setting which smooths down the resolution of games. But there should be some freedom to it, right? With TAA setting switched on, there is also a blurred effect to smooth down the resolution. While some players enjoy smooth resolution and graphics, some players prefer crisp and clear resolution. So, here’s our guide on how to disable the TAA setting in Stray.
How to Disable the TAA Setting in Stray
You can disable the TAA setting by editing a configuration file for Stray. Follow the mentioned below steps to disable this setting:
- Hit the Win + R button to launch Windows Run.
- Then, type and enter the following address: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Hk_project\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor
- We need to head to the Configuration folder for Stray. Here’s the default file directory: Local\Hk_project\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor
- As you head over to this folder, you need to navigate the “Engine.ini” file.
- Open that configuration file using a Notepad or WordPad.
