  • Guide to getting maximum FPS on a Macbook

    The following are based on what I have found to help and benefit my overall playing experience. I have tested this on my 2015 macbook Pro and get 35-55 fps ingame, 90ish pregame and 160 in matchmaking lobby.

    1) PLAY IN BOOTCAMP. I feel in bootcamp u can get real boost in fps. ALS ALL THE FOLLOWING DETAILS APPLY TO DOING THIS IN BOOTCAMP.

    2) Remove the grass. Heres a video detailing how to -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STk6x3M3-f8 THIS GIVES THE BIGGEST FPS boost.

    3) Set all the settings to low (or medium for things like anti aliasing that for me didnt impact fps that much + post processing).

    4) Set Mac-shipping-Fortnite.exe priority to Above Normal(otherwise heats up like crazy)

    5) Change Performance settings. To do this right click on Computer properties and it should take you to a screen that shows computer specs, OS etc. To the left click advanced settings. CLick Performance settings and deselect everything apart from things you may want to leave.

    6) Don't have anything running in the background like chrome.(I leave spotify and discord running for obvious reasons)

    7) Turn audio quality to Low.

    8) PLAY IN FULLSCREEN. i cant stress this enough but this gives alot more fps than being in fullscreen windowed.

    ALSO if someone can find the files in the mac version where engine, and game settings are (that have resolution settings etc in them) that would be helpful and could basically make obsolete playing on bootcamp.

    Hope these help you, definitely helped me.(also guide is made by me :D )

      I found where the files are.
      /Users/robertehrlish/Library/Application Support/Epic/EpicGamesLauncher/Intermediate/Config/CoalescedSourceConfigs
      And the file that has to do with graphics is called EditorPerProjectUserSettings.ini

        That file also allows you to change FOV!

            So you got the grass off? Where exactly you paste those lines?

              No longer works with the newest update. They removed any edits done to engine.ini

              sure, go to task manager, which if u right click on the Task bar(windows) you will find it there. After that, go to "details" and find "Mac-Shipping-Fortnite.exe". Right click it,--> set priority, --> High etc.

                        I have a Mac Book Air, as I hit install fortnite on the epic games Launcher, I get a message saying, are you sure you want to run fortnite, as your system is not good enough, and fortnite may crash

                          this may be because your specs are too low.
