How to turn off motion blur?

Before you start making any changes, make sure to backup the file in question. That way, you can restore the original version if you mess something up, instead of waiting to reinstall the entire game.

The file you’re looking for is called GameUserSettings.ini and you’ll find it in /Users/your_username/App Data/Local/Packages/Microsoft.Dayton_1.3137.99.2_x64/Local State/State of Decay 2/Saved/Config/UWP/. Once you’ve found (and backed up) the file, open it in Notepad. If you want to disable motion blur, you should look for the lines containing MotionBlurQuality, PostProcessQuality, and DOFQuality. Set the value of each of these to 0. In theory, changing the first one should suffice, but it doesn’t always to the trick. Save the file and run the game, and everything should be in order.

State of Decay 2 hasn’t been having the best early start. People are complaining about the code 6 error, and a lot of folks don’t even know how to play coop. It’s been a rocky ride so far, and even things as simple as getting your Doomsday pack ultimate edition bonus items seem to be causing problems. The game is going to be properly released on May 22nd, and we hope the day one patch fixes most of the issues.
