Such a constructive post, no one has Idea what you've done, why you game were crashing, which guide you've undone etc. As far I know crashing was fixed in the last patch.

You could mess up something with settings, system registry, cuz the guide is 100% safe and definitely not cause any crashes, you also didn't say which kind of crash you've got, system, graphics card, game etc.

Also, it will be crucial to get this information as it might have helped many other players, what you've undone from my guide so far or which settings you've changed.

iv got a laptop. did all this

World War 3 is still in EARLY ACCESS - Keep that in mind, we still working on optimization.

 

So let's start about FPS...

One of the most common benchmarks used in measuring the graphics performance of a video game is the frame rate or frames per second. The frame rate in a video game reflects how often an image you see on the screen is refreshed to produce the image and simulation movement/motion. The frame rate is most often measured in frames per second or FPS, (not to be confused with First Person Shooters). 

 
 

There are a number of factors that contribute to a game's frame rate or frames per second (FPS) performance. The areas that can impact game frame rate/FPS include:

  • System hardware, such as the graphics card, motherboard, CPU, and memory.
  • Software, such as programs working in the background, and overall Windows settings.
  • Graphics and resolution settings within the game.
  • How well the game code is optimized and developed for graphics performance.
 

The largest contributing factor to a game's frame rate or FPS performance is the graphics card and CPU. In basic terms, the computer's CPU sends information or instructions from programs, applications, in this case, the game, to the graphics card. The graphics card will then, in turn, process the instructions received, render the image and send it to the monitor for display.
There is a direct relationship between the CPU and GPU, with the performance of your graphics card being dependent on the CPU and vice verse. If a CPU is underpowered, it does not make sense to upgrade to the latest and greatest graphics card if it's not going to be able to utilize all of its processing power.

 

Before we start you need a measuring tool which let you monitor your FPS, hardware usage and monitor temperatures, most common and know is MSI Afterburner. (You need to install both MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner. Otherwise, you won't be able to display parameters on screen.)
All you need to know is in the video
MSI AFTERBURNER

 

Let's start, in this guide, I will tell you what you can do to improve FPS performance. I can only provide tips for Nvidia users, but it will be similar for AMD users, also only Windows 10 correct settings.

Make sure your Graphics card drivers and Windows are updated to the newest versions.

 

Nvidia control panel settings (Right click on desktop, then click Nvidia Control Panel)

1. Adjust image settings with preview

  1. Choice, Use the advanced 3D image settings

2. Manage 3D settings - You can choose between two tabs: Global and Program settings.
Global - settings will affect on your all used programs. (Suggest use this one)
Program - settings will affect only on the choice program from the list.

  1. CUDA GPUs - All
  2. Maximum pre-rendered frames - 1
  3. Power management mode - Prefer maximum performance
  4. Preferred refresh rate - Highest available
  5. Texture filtering-quality - High Performance
  6. Threaded Optimization - On
  7. Vertical Sync - Off
  8. Texture filtering-trilinear optimization - On
  9. Texture filtering-anisotropic sample optimization - On
  10. Ambient Occlusion - Off
  11. Shader cache - On (I suggest keep it On if you have SSD, turn it Off if you have HDD, you have to check it by yourself, sometimes it's helpful for stuttering etc.)
  12. Tripple Buffering - Off (Turn it On when using Vertical Sync.)

3. Configure surround, Physyx

  1. Choice the processor for PhysX effects or let Nvidia decide (In some games it will affect, some don't) You have to check what's better for you. I chose a graphics card.

already on  High-Performance

Disable or remove potentially unwanted programs

  • Press [Windows Key] + R
  • Type msconfig and press Enter
  • Click on the Services tab
  • Check Hide all Microsoft services, so you don't end up accidentally disabling a key process.
  • Uncheck unwanted programs.
  • Click on the Startup tab then open Task manager.
  • Turn off all unwanted programs.
  • Apply changes after each step.
  • Restart your computer.

i didn't turn off all programs

i did this but changed it back it looked crap not in game

  12. Tripple Buffering - Off (Turn it On when using Vertical Sync.)

You can leave other settings by application controlled or turned Off as you can adjust them in-game settings. (Your options may differ depends on hardware.)

3. Configure surround, Physyx

  1. Choice the processor for PhysX effects or let Nvidia decide (In some games it will affect, some don't) You have to check what's better for you. I chose a graphics card.

4. Change resolution

  1. You have to choose on which resolution you want to play and also Refresh rate for your monitor (Hz).
  2. Under “Change Resolution” make sure that you’re selected native resolution for your display and highest refresh rate, for resolutions marked (native) next to them, the maximum refresh rate can be only set up to 60Hz, scroll lower (PC tab) and find the same resolution but with higher refresh rates 120, 144 or 240Hz, depends which rate your monitor can support.
  3. Change the “Refresh Rate” to as high as it will go.
  4. (Only for G-Sync Monitors) Under “Set Up G-Sync”, simply “Enable G-Sync”.
  5. (Only for G-Sync Monitors) Make sure that under “Manage 3D Settings” you set “Vertical sync” to OFF.

5. Adjust Desktop size and position

  1. If you scaling an image to a different resolution than your native resolution of the monitor, you can manage it here.

Remember to apply all changes which you made in Nvidia control panel.

Windows power management (For PC's and which more important for laptops users)

  1. Press the [Windows Key] + R to open the Run dialog box.

  2. Type powercfg.cpl and then press Enter.

  3. In the Power Options window, under Select, a power plan, choose High Performance.

    If you do not see the High-Performance option, click the down arrow next to Show additional plans or Create a new plan and select High Performance, then follow instructions.

  4. Click Save Changes or click OK.

Disable or remove potentially unwanted programs

  • Press [Windows Key] + R
  • Type msconfig and press Enter
  • Click on the Services tab
  • Check Hide all Microsoft services, so you don't end up accidentally disabling a key process.
  • Uncheck unwanted programs.
  • Click on the Startup tab then open Task manager.
  • Turn off all unwanted programs.
  • Apply changes after each step.
  • Restart your computer.

Set Windows to best performance

  • Press [Windows Key] + R
  • Type sysdm.cpl and press Enter
  • Click on the Advanced tab
  • In Performance click on settings
  • In Visual Effects, select Adjust for best performance (It will disable all your icon animations, shadows, windows animations etc. you can also select Custom, and choose what you want to see. Personally, I have selected Custom and only a couple of ticked boxes, rest is useless.)
  • Apply and exit.

and i did most off other settings as well. game crashed  alot just wood turn off. since i undone all this one crash also fps not too bad now since patch update. lag and shuttering is big problem

You had to turn off some system programs, or your laptop starts throttling after you change power management, no idea, still don't know what kind of error you get.

What laptop you have?
