How to make your own settings file:
http://www.insidetwoworlds.com/showthread.php?t=32933

Tl;dr: Put the parameters one after another in a notepad document. Save it in the folder with TW2 executable. While in game, open up the console ("~" button) and type" @nameofyourparametersfile
You have to enable it in the console every time you launch the game from the desktop.

Tweaking guide:

Comprehensive parameters list:
http://forum.worldofplayers.de/forum/threads/908547-Console-Commands?p=14468957#post14468957
------------------------------------------------------------
FREE FPS TWEAKS
Following tweaks will get you some additional frames without sacrificing any (or very little) visual candy:

Engine.StencilShadows 0
Engine.ParalaxOnTerrain 0

If you already disabled shadows in the game's graphic settings, use this line for additional frames:

Engine.SSAOForceOFF 1
------------------------------------------------------------
GRAPHIC TWEAKS
Following tweaks disable fog and annoying dialog depth of field. They don't affect the framerate.

Graph.EnableFog 0
Cam.Talk.DOFAmount 0

Optionally:

Engine.EdgeAABlend X

This controls the amount of edge blurriness, default value is 1 (don't set it higher). You can lower it to 0.75 or 0.5 for sharper but more jagged image (or 0 to completely disable).
------------------------------------------------------------
ANTIALIASING

Use this program (it works both, for ATI and NVIDIA):
http://mrhaandi.blogspot.com/p/injectsmaa.html

Just paste the files from the D3D9 OR D3D10 folder to the game installation (folder with TwoWorlds2.exe file).
I recommend opening injector.ini and changing:

SMAA_PRESET_HIGH
to
SMAA_PRESET_LOW

It still gives very nice AA effect with minimum performance hit. Here's a comparison:

------------------------------------------------------------
DirectX 10 is very resource heavy but doesn't really add much to graphics compared to DirectX 9 so it's best to start the game using the TwoWorlds2.exe for a massive performance boost.
------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT
------------------------------------------------------------
The game doesn't have a triple buffering option so be sure to force it unless you're not using vsync (but why would you do that?!). Without triple buffering you'll suffer 15/30 fps drops in some heavy resource scenes. You can force it via graphic card's control panel (doesn't always work*) or use the D3DOverrider or MSI Afterburner programs.

*Sometimes you need to alt-tab then return to game to make it work.

Bump because I added a lot of new info. Sue me ;)
Does it have all the camera tweaks? I was just about to post something similar regarding camera tweaks, but this is better, especially if it has all the camera tweaks.

First thing I tweaked when I got Two Worlds 2 a long time ago was change the camera. The blur and shaking was annoying. Why do people enjoy that so much? How can they enjoy it compared to clean moving and a clean simple following camera so you can actually see all the scenery and graphics.

Thanks for putting this up! I did not know how to create my own settings file, that would be very helpful! I'll see if I can get it to work.
Is there any way in order to limit the FPS to 60 and enable Vsync? I suffer from screen tearing because of the unnecessary high framerate and my card gets noisy because always at full load. Above 100 FPS is just no use... but i dont know how to enable Vsync, the game got generally very few graphic options.

There IS a vsync option in the game's graphic settings and it's not hidden...
Are we talking about the same game? Two World Two (2)?

I cant find a Vsync, prehaps im blind. Any screenshot of that stuff?

I dont get those options at all

The background is the same so we clearly got the same game but i do miss almost any options you got.

My game version is 1.3.7. I was downloading it yesterday from gog so it should be the newest version. Something is screwed but i dont know how that is possible or how to solve the issue.

Thats how it looks: http://oi40.tinypic.com/10miiwp.jpg

Press that arrow down under the antialiasing... Also, go in the interface options and turn resizeable interface OFF for smaller UI (there's also small inventory icons setting).

That was kinda hidden, and the interface is way to big sized at 1080P. A bit weird. That game isnt that old (compared to most of the other gog games) and nowadays 1080P is pretty much a standart resolution. So most games, even on gog, should be tuned in order to match that standart.

But thanks to your fix i finally solved the issue and most of the stuff isnt "hidden" anymore, phew im happy.

Besides, the graphic surely is a lot of bling and one of the best looking gog games, however, it surely is taxing on the hardware, from nothing simply comes nothing.

It's big because you have enabled resizeable interface. Turn it OFF and turn ON small inventory icons and the interface will be small and handy. I also recommend turning looting animation OFF because it saves A LOT of time when looting corpses.
Alright, thanks. Everything fixed now.
Sorry if I bump an old thread but this is kind of useful for new players.

This mod is REALLY good as it combines all the multiplayer areas and the DLC areas with the main campaign, adds a lot of gameplay tweaks and adds more gameplay hours (20+). A must for everyone who is starting a fresh game.

Well, it was never actually hidden in the first place...your mind just overlooked the down arrow on the options screen and you "didn't see it" even though it was in plain sight. I did the same thing initially, so you aren't alone. But if you look at it objectively, the down arrow is rather obvious...;)

I really like the game and the DLC--both very imaginative. If this game had not come out so close to Skyrim I think it would have received a lot better press and reviews--I play at 1920x1200 and think there is a lot of good stuff in the game graphically. I run with the graphics options maxed and still get great performance--parallax turned on, etc. These days even a mid-range gpu like a 2GB HD 7850 @ < $160 will run the game maxed out in IQ at an excellent frame-rate @ 1920x1200 and possibly higher.

I'll have to get back into this game sometime soon!

Edit: Hey, just noticed you are from Switzerland. Beautiful country--I visited for a few weeks several years back and spent most of the visit in Montreaux (SP?) and some time in Zurich. Gorgeous country. Looking out over the Alps the sheer silence is deafening...you'd have to be there to understand that, right? Good deal...;)

I updated my first post with some triple buffering info.
