If you missed the first survey, don’t worry, now’s your chance to let your voice be heard!

I found this video tutorial on how to optimize your Sandstorm game. Since i already followed other guides specially on the nvidia settings which i already had i just only replace the engine.ini file with the one i downloaded from the video description which i will leave you the file as an attachment.

I really didn't replace any other file but i did the changes on steam, i also didn't use the launch option that says NOTEXTURESTREAMING since that option is for high end video cards.

So without further due, here is the video:
