Apparently forcing the start of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade for PC with DirectX 11 could limit the stuttering problems that plague the port. At least this is what was suggested by the editors of PC Gamer who tested this solution, noting improvements in this regard. In return, however, you’ll have to forgo HDR.
To start Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade in DirectX 11 you will need to access the Epic Games Launcher and click on the profile icon at the top right to enter the Settings. From here scroll down until you reach the installed games section, click on Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade and check the “Additional command line arguments” box. Enter “dx11” (without quotes) and start the application. If you want to force the game into fullscreen mode you will need to add “-fullscreen” as well.
As mentioned at the beginning, this “do it yourself” solution should limit stuttering problems, such as those seen in Chapter 3 or when there are numerous characters on the screen. On the other hand, you will lose HDR , so make sure you choose the SDR option in the game settings.
Obviously the hope is that in the future Square Enix will publish an update that improves the performance of the PC port of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade.
