    Bump. Thanks for taking the time to post this. My 2018 laptop with basic Intel graphics took a horrible performance hit after the dx11 update. Super frustrating. FPS were so bad it was bordering on unplayable. Rebuilding the eqclient.ini really seems to do the trick. Load times and performance improved so much I did the same on my souped up dekstop. Really isn't that bad - just copied and pasted keymaps, text colors, and chat filters settings from my old INI.

    Do you think that maybe with the new graphics system it is perhaps always selecting "Microsoft Basic Render Driver" instead of your actual graphics card?

    That might explain why performance suddenly became so bad, even on high end systems.

    What I would love to see, but never will, would be a detailed document from DBG showing every single possible entry in all these.ini files along with details of what values are valid.

    Also, highlight entries that are no longer used, etc.
