BioWare has added Mass Effect Andromeda console commands where players can enter various inputs that will affect the game. Unknown to some, there are actually some of these commands that will improve the gameplay of Mass Effect Andromeda.
In order to access the Mass Effect Andromeda console commands, simply click the tilde key (~). Once a black layout for text appears, the player can then enter the preferred command to use.
The Mass Effect Andromeda console commands will give the player access to enable or disable features not found in the in-game settings menu. However, developers only included a specific command that the player should enter if he wants to access it.
One of the most useful console commands in Mass Effect Andromeda is probably the “GameTime.MaxVariableFps” since it allows the player to cap his FPS. It is useful especially when the player is encountering any FPS drops despite having a high FPS ceiling.
Having a capped FPS means having a stable one. As long as Mass Effect Andromeda does not exceed the capped fps or drops only for a few games, the game will run smoother.
Along with this command, the “PerfOverlay.DrawFps” can be used to fix the FPS with a float value worked. Upon entering the said command in Mass Effect Andromeda, the FPS overlay will appearing, showing at what frame-rate the game is currently running in real time.
Keep capping the FPS with a different float value if the FPS showed by the overlay is not stable. Once it stabilizes, keep the said value and continue playing the game.
“UIDrawEnable” can also be considered as useful if the player wants to appreciate the graphics and scenery of Mass Effect Andromeda. It is a console command that disables and enables the entire user interface. It is perfect for screen capturing moments in the game of the character without the UI.
