Speeding up Login to the game and adjusting FOV

Besides all of the modifications which can be done to increase the games FPS you can also change other features of the game which will speed up login and also increase the field of view for a character. These are more of the optional tweaks which you can choose to do to your game. Keep in mind modification of the client still falls into gray area's when it comes to submiting screenshots to the GM team remember that when you go to submit for contests.

Note: Make sure any configurations does in the .ini files are set to READ ONLY to stop the client from rewriting them

Modification of Field of Vision (FOV)

You will need to locate:
64Bit:   C:\Program Files (x86)\TERA\Client\S1Game\Config\S1Input.ini
32Bit:   C:\Program Files\TERA\Client\S1Game\Config\S1Input.ini

Look for the line bEnableMouseSmoothing then under it add the following:
Bindings=(Name="end",Command="fov 90")
Bindings=(Name="home",Command="fov 71")

When you press the end key you will have a field of vision of 90. When you press the home key it will go back to the default field of vision.

Disable Opening Movies/Logos

Doing this will speed up the entry into the game but keep in mind doing this will most likely remove the loading screens making them black in game so you will not have the pretty art that Tera Online uses when you do this.

Locate the following folder:
64Bit:   C:\Program Files (x86)\TERA\Client\S1Game\CookedPC\Art_Data\Packages\Video\
32Bit:   C:\Program Files\TERA\Client\S1Game\CookedPC\Art_Data\Packages\Video\

Then rename the following files in this folder:
intro_atari.bik   <-This one control's atari's logo
intro_bhs.bik    <- This one control's the begining movie for bluehole studio's  
intro_eme.bik   <- This one control's En Masse's introduction
intro_fog.bik (Europe Version)  <-gameforge logo specific to Europe
intro_ubi.bik (Europe Version)  <-Ubisoft logo specific to Europe
Prologue_kor.bik  <- The main introduction movie before the game takes you to the login screen.

I was able to view them using the a BIK player since it is a known video format for gaming.
Disable Mouse Smoothing

This effect's how your mouse works in game. Mouse smoothing is an option which slows down your mouses movement this can be bad if your trying to do something quickly cause the game will actually cause your mouse to move slower based on this setting.

You will need to locate:
64Bit:   C:\Program Files (x86)\TERA\Client\S1Game\Config\S1Input.ini
32Bit:   C:\Program Files\TERA\Client\S1Game\Config\S1Input.ini


Change to:

This will increase the response time of your mouse.


This only applies to newer windows and does not apply for people using windows xp but most people have this modification that they can do. But this will work from windows vista to most current systems. What this option in windows does is limits the network receive speed to 10% of its maximum – 100Mbps on gigabit ethernet, and 10Mbps on fast ethernet. But if the service itself is removed it will disable all of the sound for the computer and that's not a good thing. So all we need to do is turn off the throttling without killing the sound services.

Go to start then Run and type regedit
Then go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile
There will be an entry for network performance throttling, default value is 10; set it to FFFFFFFF hex
* Reboot

This effects quite afew games when it comes to lag issues.
