THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV: Optimization Guide

It’s no secret that THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV is poorly optimized. In this guide I will collect suggestions that may help you to run the game more smoothly


Running the game in Direct X 11

If you have an older PC or are experiencing performance issues in KOFXV on PC, adding “-dx11” to your launch options to force the game into DirectX 11 mode might help you run the game more smoothly. Credits to twitter user @JohnXuandou

Game not using full CPU

weird issue I found.
my KOFXV was using only 4 out of 12 threads of CPU. it shouldn’t be so by I changed it to use full CPU thereads & the FPS drops completely gone for both DX12 & DX11. (I still recommend DX11 though). Credits to twitter user @BogardMajeed
