Default Effects Quality Locked on High

I cannot change the effects quality under graphics settings. I tried resetting my profile and changing all the graphics settings low and high and it is still locked onto high. I am running a low end pc and trying to grab some extra frames. Any help would well appreciated.

They need to make the effects setting unlock again becasue it will not be fair for the other player who have low end Computers

I'd rather they lock all settings to the max to stop the advantage of low settings completely. The graphic settings barely affect framerate in this game, since it's running on an engine from 2005.

I'm playing on i5 2500k (with a lot of dust on the cooler so it goes up to 90 C xd) and gtx 560 ti, never dropping below 100 fps on max

I'm agree with sydney. What are the implications of locking all effects settings to high?

Would minimum computer requirements increase?

Would any development be easier?

sure, effects uses the largest textures in game and lot's of processing power. but yes much easier to develop since you don't have to make them look good on low and medium also using less stuff

think the developers are stupid for forcefully locking effects on high...the game is dying out and your fought this would help.
stupidest thing, totally disagree for people with low end systems or anyone that like there own graphics customization.

The performance difference with effects on high vs low can only be felt if you are running a 10 year old low end GPU....
