Screen Resolution: Your Monitor’s Native Resolution

Set the Screen Resolution setting to the native resolution of your display. Using your native resolution will ensure that the game’s visuals will have proper detail without any blurriness. In case you’re running the game on a very resource-limited PC, you could scale down your resolution.

Fullscreen Monitor Index: Select your Main Display

In the Fullscreen Monitor Index, simply select the primary monitor that you want the game to be displayed on. This setting will only be available if you have a multi-monitor setup.

Windowed Mode: Off

It’s important to run Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga in fullscreen for the best FPS. So, using windowed mode will negatively impact your performance.

Borderless: Off

Borderless is a somewhat better display mode than Windowed mode. It helps you minimize and return to the game quicker if you work on any other application while playing. However, to favor performance, the fullscreen mode is what we’ll use.

Vertical Sync: Off

As in every game, we’ll disable vertical sync to avoid capping FPS to your monitor’s max refresh rate. Plus, V-sync also introduces input lag and stuttering, which ruins the whole experience. 

Shadow Quality: Low

Shadow Quality is one of the most taxing graphics settings in Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga. It produces one of the finest shadows in a Lego game, but the hit-on performance is unjustified. Switching Shadow Quality to low helps reduce the load on GPU while keeping a decent amount of shadow effects. 

Anti Aliasing: Temporal AA

Temporal AA is the best anti-aliasing option. It’s both cost-effective and outputs the best Anti-Aliasing effect that successfully minimizes jagged edges in the textures.

Ambient Occlusion: Low

Turning Ambient Occlusion to Low game gives me a boost of 3-5 FPS, depending on the environment. Plus, during regular fast-paced gameplay, I didn’t notice any visual degradation whatsoever. 

Screen Space Reflections: Low

Screen Space Reflections (SSR) is also one of the most taxing graphics settings. Best leave it at low to enjoy the game at higher FPS at the cost of reflection quality. If you have a decent PC, I recommend bumping this setting to medium.

Image Sharpening: Off

There’s no need for additional image sharpening in Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga as textures are already crisp as it is. One weird thing I’ve experienced is that using texture sharpening actually costs performance.

HDR Output: Disable

There’s no need to enable HDR, even if you’re running the game on a high-end PC. The reason for this is that it reduces FPS and doesn’t work as intended (at least at launch).

To enable Game Mode, all you have to do is:

  2. Once you’re in Game Mode Settings, toggle the game mode on. 

And that’s it. Now Game Mode is enabled, and all you have to do is launch Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga to experience its effect on performance. 

Use Launch Options to Force Fullscreen Mode

In the graphics settings above, I’ve mentioned that running the game in Windowed or Borderless will negatively affect your FPS.

So, here’s how you can always start the game in Fullscreen mode:

  1. Open Steam and go to your games library.
  2. Here, locate Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga, right-click on it, and go to properties. 
  3. Once you’re in properties, open the General tab and find the Launch Options.
  4. Here, type the command ” -Fullscreen” (without quotes) to run the game on fullscreen mode whenever you launch it. 

It has helped tremendously with stuttering, lag, and FPS drops issues for people. Even if you aren’t running into issues, you should still benefit from running the game on fullscreen mode.

Run The Game as Administrator

Running Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga as admin can solve several performance issues. For starters, any application that might be messing with your game won’t be able to affect it anymore.

To do this, simply:

  1. Locate the Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga game files through Steam.
  2. Once inside, right-click on the main executable and select properties. 
  3. In properties, switch to the compatibility tab and check on the setting” run the application with administrative privileges.”
  4. After you’re done, apply the setting, then close the property window.

Your game will always run with admin privileges and it’ll hopefully solve your performance issues.

Disable Your Antivirus

Antivirus may protect us from external threats, but in rare cases, it becomes an internal threat itself. Several antiviruses are known to cause problems with game files. Some antivirus even removes game files that they find slightly at risk. It disrupts the gaming experience and must be stopped.

Check if you’re gaming is running better by temporarily disabling your antivirus. If your game does perform better, simply add an exception into the antivirus of your game’s install folder.

May High Performance be With You

That wraps up our guide. From taking in-game graphics settings to solving critical performance issues, all methods are tried, tested, and working.
