Best Settings for No Rest for the Wicked

Getting straight to the point, No Rest for the Wicked does not have a lot of graphical settings options. The screenshot provided below gives you a good idea of every option you have at your disposal. For raw visual options, you currently have Quality presets that range from ‘Performance’ to ‘Best Quality’. To give an idea of performance between these presets, it’s reasonable to expect a 20 to 35% performance increase from ‘Best Quality’ to ‘Performance’ graphical presets.

This seems quite reasonable to me given how the game still looks gorgeous at the lowest preset. Additionally, the game also has options for lowering your render scale on top of sharpness if you want to boost performance that way as well. Beyond that, you can also use Dynamic Resolution Scaling to target specific frames per second. You can set it to target 60fps, and then lower the maximum X and Y scaling so that it can dynamically change your resolution on the fly to keep your framerate higher.

In effect, this works pretty well, and because of the art style, it’s difficult to see when the resolution changes if you’re only having it change between 10-20%. There is also a setting for motion blur for those who like that in games like this, leave it off if that is your preference, but having it on shouldn’t hurt performance. The following settings give me an average of 60-90 fps at 1440p Ultrawide on my mid-range gaming desktop:

Quality Presets: Quality

Render Scale: 100%

Sharpness: 125%

Motion Blur: 50%

Framerate Independent Motion Blur: On

Dynamic Resolution Scaling: On

Target FPS: 100

Maximum X Scaling: 80

Maximum Y Scaling: 80

Finally, the developers do have the intention to add DLSS soon. It’s not clear if that DLSS setting is 2.0 or the latest 3.7 with frame generation, but DLSS is still welcome regardless and should help tremendously. Here’s hoping it’s the latter by the time Co-op Multiplayer is introduced.
