FPS fix for Valheim

The steps are simple:

Right click on Valheim in your Steam library and go to ‘Manage’ and then ‘Browse local files.’
That should bring up a window of Valheim’s game files.

Click on the valheim_Data folder.
Find the file named ‘boot’ or ‘boot.config’ and open it with Notepad.
Add “gfx-enable-gfx-jobs=1” as a separate line at the very top.
Add “gfx-enable-native-gfx-jobs=1” right below the first line.
Save and close the file.

Go back to Valheim in your Steam library, right click and select ‘Properties.’
Add “-windows-mode exclusive” into the launch options field.
Close that window.

Open up Task Manager (press Ctrl + Alt + Delete) and find Valheim under the processes tab.
Right click and select ‘Go to details.’
Right click valheim.exe, select ‘Set Priority’ and change it to ‘High.’
You’ll have to repeat this final step with Task Manager each time you launch the game.

Freelancer

After playing freelancer a couple of years ago, some collegues and I dediced to play again and in order to do so, I started a dedicated server.

This started with a local spare P4 dell desktop, running headless next to the TV with Win7, AV software and a freelancer installation.
After switching jobs I was intruducted to VMWare and dedidec a P2V to a local machine and eventually moved the server to a host in in shared colocation in DATAONE, Wormer.

In order to connect to the freelancer server, the best option would be to use the Direct IP was. This is a hta file located in your installation dir (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Freelancer\EXE). Start the FLdirectIP.hta and connect by FQDN [freelancer.l4urenz.nl] or the direct ip address [185.173.232.214]

First race were 12 rounds of Lime Rock park. which Elio nailed again with a first place and some other fine crashes which made the race fun. The second race were 8 laps of Road Atlanta, which gave us some nice battles for 2nd/3rd and 5th/6th place.

Results from these 2 races were as following:
