This option can save you a lot of time by disabling the intro video for Dying Light. This option disables the intro Nvidia logo and other company logos. It is a great steam launch option for gamers who play a lot of games. Also, the intro video is quite loud and annoying. Might as well disable it for faster setup.


This steam launch option lets you play Dying Light in high priority settings. The same option works for a lot of games so feel free to test this option in other steam games as well.

It saves you the time of manually using the task manager to increase the priority of the game. This helps you get more resources and higher FPS in gaming.

This option forces the CPU to use all the cores for gaming. This option was originally meant for older games that were not used to the new multicore architecture. If you have an 8 core or a 16 core processor then this option can help you get some added performance in Dying light.

These are experimental options that may or may not work. They need proper testing and honestly, I could not find proper documentation for those from the dying light team. I know that they do work but they significantly drop the graphics quality of the game. Proceed with caution when using this steam launch options in dying light.
