After making a significant advancement, modder PureDark published his DLSS 3 mod for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. He already made a little movie to highlight the significant frame rate increases, but he delayed its publication owing to some image quality difficulties.
Famously, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor had significant performance issues when it first launched on PC (and, to a lesser extent, on consoles). Even the powerful RTX 4090 failed to generate respectable frame rates at 1440p and 4K on launch day.
Respawn Entertainment quickly released a few patches that marginally improved the situation shortly after the game’s debut, but optimization was still far from ideal.
Owners of GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs, on the other hand, can now obtain PureDark’s DLSS 3 upgrade for a significant performance improvement.
Unlike PureDark’s previous DLSS 3 mods for Elden Ring and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, this one must be loaded on top of the game’s relatively substandard AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2 implementation. PureDark is working on replacing FSR2 with DLSS 2 (Super Resolution), however, this is still in the works.
You may want to activate the CAS for the time being. Because FSR2 blurs the game’s textures too much even when set to Quality, the mod includes an fx shader via ReShade. RCAS is technically present in FSR2, but it does not appear in this game. Of course, if you’d prefer not essentially double down on CAS, you may use another sharpening shader.
PureDark’s installation documentation also advises users to eliminate motion blur in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s graphics settings since it interferes with the DLSS 3 mod. Finally, the game may suddenly operate at a significantly lower frame rate for no apparent reason. That happened to me once during my tests. The current workaround is to toggle Frame Generation off and on again in the upscale settings.
