Bloober Team, the development team behind Layers of Fear, is back and this time around with a cyberpunk horror game called Observer. The game is out now on Steam, and it has been very well received by fans and critics. Players take on the role of an Observer, the new front line of neural police, as you hack into the jagged minds of the insane. In this Observer guide, we are going to take a look a few settings that will improve the overall performance of the game on PC. In simple term, we are going to let you know few settings in Config file to Uncap FPS, Skip Intro, Change FOV, and 21:9 Ultra Wide support. So without any further ado, let’s get started.

Observer PC Error Fixes Guide

Observer PC Error and Fixes

1: Uncap FPS

To Uncap FPS in Observer, you need to edit the config file. Go to the location of the Observer Config file, the path will be something like this – “\AppData\Local\TheObserver\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor”. Make change to this “GameUserSetting.ini” – change the parameter that reads – “FrameRateLimit” set it to 500.000000. FrameRateLimit=500.000000

2: Increase FOV

Go to Engine.ini and add this line:



After adding these lines don’t forget to save Engine.ini file and make it read-only.

3: Skip Intro

To skip those annoying intros in Observer you need to make a change to Movies file. It is location at \steamapps\common\Observer\TheObserver\Content\Movies. Go to this file and rename all Loadingscreen and Loadingloop files. For example – make it X_Loadingscreen (I put “X_” at beginning of those file names. This is something I always do), you can use what ever you want.

4: 21:9 Ultra Wide Support

Observer does not support 21:9 Ultra Wide. Bloober Team has stated that this feature won’t be available at launch. It is going to be implemented later on via patch update. Sadly, there is no ETA at the moment. “Not at launch but we’re working on getting it implemented with an update. No eta at the moment on when that’ll be but we appreciate your patience!” reads a statement from Bloober Team.

5: Observer Starts In VR Mode And Is Unplayable

A lot of players are complaining about this issue. It is a bug, and we have yet to receive an update from the Bloober Team on it. According to the reports we have received, a lot of players with headsets are having this issue and no one can use the game. We have to wait for the development team to fix this issue. As a temporary workaround, I would suggest you to try unplugging your headset, the game might work just fine.

6: Remove or Disable Chromatic Aberration And Depth Of Field

It is completely up to you on whether you want to disable Chromatic Aberration in Observer. This feature suits perfectly with the aesthetic of the game, but there are few players who want to remove/disable Chromatic Aberration during gameplay and during the time they want to take a screenshot. So here’s how to do it.

Go to this Folder – C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Local\TheObserver\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor. Open the Scalability file and paste the following four lines.

  • [PostProcessQuality@3]
  • r.SceneColorFringeQuality=0
  • r.SceneColorFringe.Max=0
  • r.DepthOfFieldQuality=0

Save the changes and set the file to READ-Only.
