Total War: Attila – How to Reduce Stuttering

Telling TW: Attila how much CPU threads it should use manually, in order to increase performance over its auto-detection.

Guide to Reduce Stuttering

How-To

In windows explorer, go to:

  • C:\Users[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Attila\scripts

or

  • %appdata%\The Creative Assembly\Attila\scripts

Open the file preferences.script.txt

In that file, find the following line:

number_of_threads 0; # number_of_threads , Set the number of threads <= 0 - automatic, >0 = explicit number #

Change the 0 to the number of threads or cores your CPU has available.

For example, in my case, using a Ryzen 7 5800x:

number_of_threads 16; # number_of_threads , Set the number of threads <= 0 - automatic, >0 = explicit number #

If you do not know how many cores your CPU has, press CTRL+Shift+Esc, open the “Performance” tab, and the CPU tab should then tell you all you need to know.
