Smite: Enable Motion Blur

Smite: Enable Motion Blur & DX11

Have you noticed the greyed out motion blur check box in Smite's graphical settings? If you're like me, knowing that you could possibly improve the visual style but not be able to because the game is still technically in beta is driving you nuts. The game uses the UE3 engine so information about tweaking it is readily available.

I have already tried (unsuccessfully) to force the game to utilize the OpenAL path to take advantage of my X-Fi card, but alas, I have failed. If you would like to continue where I left off, check out my Evernote clippings here.

A quick Google search will uncover this post courtesy of Lemon King:
Tweaking the SMITE Client
First you will need to Open BattleEngine.ini under ..\Documents\My Games\Smite\BattleGame\Config\

Now Pick and Choose what tweaks you want, CTRL+F is your friend.

DX11
code:
Under: [SystemSettings]
Find: AllowD3D11=False
Change False to True
Screen Space Ambient Occlusion
code:
Under: [SystemSettings]
Find: AmbientOcclusion=False
Change False to True
If missing add: AmbientOcclusion=True

Also Under: [Engine.SeqAct_Interp]
Find:
RenderingOverrides=(bAllowAmbientOcclusion=False,bAllowDominantWholeSceneDynamicShadows=True,bAllowMotionBlurSkinning=False,bAllowTemporalAA=True,bAllowLightShafts=True)
Change it to:
RenderingOverrides=(bAllowAmbientOcclusion=True,bAllowDominantWholeSceneDynamicShadows=True,bAllowMotionBlurSkinning=True,bAllowTemporalAA=True,bAllowLightShafts=True)
Motion Blur
code:
Under: [SystemSettings]
Find: MotionBlur=False
Change False to True

Motion Blur Skinning
1 - per object
2 - forced override on everything
0 - disable.
MotionBlurSkinning=1
Choppy Distance Animations Fix
code:
Under: [SystemSettings]
Find: bAllowAnimationFrameRateLOD=true
Change True to False


I must note that something changed approximately 5 patches ago that causes the main screen in Smite to blur if you enable motion blur. This is an annoyance, but the motion blur works properly in game.

Also, I've ran across another tweak that will remove those annoying blurry textures on load.

Search for:

MipFadeInSpeed0 
MipFadeOutSpeed0 
MipFadeInSpeed1 
MipFadeOutSpeed1

and change the values to zero so that it looks like this:

MipFadeInSpeed0=0 
MipFadeOutSpeed0=0 
MipFadeInSpeed1=0 
MipFadeOutSpeed1=0
IMPORTANT NOTE

After making these changes, you must select the "custom" option under the graphics settings in game for all effects to apply.
