You can tweak Medal of Honor 2010 to run better on your system, or for an increase in performance if you are facing any performance issues. For that, you will need to edit configuration file of Medal of Honor 2010, which you can find in the locations specified for your specific operating system.

In Medal Of Honor 2010, the configuration file you need to edit is “Settings.ini”, which can be found here.

Windows 7/Vista

C:\Users\[Zawad]\Documents\Medal of Honor\Multiplayer\settings.ini

Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\[Zawad]\My Documents\Medal of Honor\Multiplayer\settings.ini


Now, which tweaks you can do ? refer to the guide below.

Medal of Honor 2010 Graphics and Performance Tweaks
Anti-Aliasing (MSAA)
The higher you set this, the more resources the game will consume. So set it low, if you want to increase the performance of your machine.
Best Performance: 0 (1x)
Best Quality: 3 (4x)

Bloom
Effect that tries to mimic the way human eye sees a bright object right after seeing a dark object. More of an eye candy, so turn it off.
Best Performance: false (off)
Best Quality: true (on)

DirectX Mode (DxVersion)
If you are on Windows 7/Vista, you may opt to run the game in DirectX 9 at the expense of graphics and eye candy you get while running the game on DirectX 10. One major disadvantage of running the game on DirectX 9 is that you may experience flickering textures and AA won’t work.
Best Performance: 9
Default: auto

Horizontal Based Ambient Occlusion (HSAO)
Dense shadows that add depth to objects, but can negatively impact performance.
Best Performance: false (off)
Best Quality: true (on)

Shadows
Best Performance: medium or low
Best Quality: high

Undergrowth
Quality of the grass on the ground. Turning it off, gives a massive performance boast.
Best Performance: medium or low
Best Quality: high

VSync
Syncs the games FPS to the refresh rate of your monitor to eliminate “tearing”. People with Average PC’s shouldn’t even think of turning it on, “Always off”. Infact, only turn it on if you can maintain 60+ FPS in the game.
Available settings: on, off

Anisotropic Filtering (Aniso)
Quality of textures at a distance. Not noticeable performance boast, but rendering these textures at distance uses memory, so keep it low if you have low RAM.

Detail
Available settings: low, medium, high

Effects
Quality of particle effects.
Available settings: low, medium, high

Overgrowth
Amount of grass that comes out of the ground.
Available settings: low, medium, high

Soldiers
Level of detail on Players.
Available settings: low, medium, high

StaticObjects
Quality of various objects (barrels, rocks, signs, etc.)
Available settings: low, medium, high

Terrain
Quality of general terrain (not including grass; see Overgrowth & Undergrowth)
Available settings: low, medium, high

Textures
Quality of general textures (walls, fences, poles, etc.)
Available settings: low, medium, high

Vehicles
Level of detail on all vehicles.
Available settings: low, medium, high

Water
Quality of water in the game, which you may never find, so better turn it off.
Best Performance: medium or low
Best Quality: high

Medal of Honor Field Of View Guide (FOV Tweak)
Unlike Battlefield Bad Company 2, Medal of Honor 2010 gives you option to change your Field of View (FOV), you can change your FOV up to 80, it is 55 by default.

Note. If you don’t have FOV line, just add it, “FOV=”.

RenderAheadLimit
Its either draw distance or more of control limit to render queue. No concrete evidence on its effects. So, go wild, you are on your own.
Best Performance: Your results may vary
Default: 2

Sound Quality
Only set this to high if you have a high-end PC, otherwise set it low.
Best Performance: low
Default: low

SpeakerCount
Refer the guide below to choose which number to pick, its completely different from sound settings.
5.1, 6.1, & 7.1 systems: 6
4.0 & 4.1 systems: 4
2.0 stereo & 2.1 systems: 2
Default: 0

Make sure you save a back up of your default “settings.ini” file in case you mess things up. Here is a default “settings.ini”, just in case you need it.

[WindowSettings]
Width=1024
Height=768
Fullscreen=true
RefreshRate=60
