We all know VRChat can be overwhelmingly laggy sometimes especially in VR. Low end PC’s tend to suffer and that poor CPU is at the brink of exploding (metaphorically speaking, that is). Here are some way to spare your PC and potentially sparking some frames.

 
 

Introduction

 
VRChat’s minimum / recommended requirements are as shown from the store page below: 
 
VRChat - Best Settings for Best FPS Guide 
 
With the option of changing settings you can still run VRChat with pc setups under this threshold. 
 
The options below can change your FPS to running around: 
 
50-90 fps in home world 
30-60 fps in a less populated public world 
15-40 fps in a more crowded/bigger public world 
 
This all still depends on the world, the amount of people, and the type of avatars these people are using.

Steps to getting to your Launch Options:

VRChat Safety Settings

 
When in VRChat, you can open your menu and fine a tab that says “Safety”. 
 
VRChat - Best Settings for Best FPS Guide 
 
From here, you can select several premade options such as: 
 
Maximum: this will turn off most avatar features for all user in all ranks 
 
Normal: this will turn off avatar features for less trusted users and enables more features for trusted users 
 
None: this will show all avatar features excluding nuisance users. 
 
Custom: choose the features you want to see.

In this case, setting your safety to Maximum will give you an advantage FPS-wise, but will turn everyone on VRChat into grey robots. 
 
 

Additional Methods

 
1. Go to your library and launch VRChat up until you get to the choice of VR or Desktop (if you have steamVR installed)

2. Before pressing play with whichever option you choose, press and hold SHIFT. This will open a menu with some extra options you can configure to spare your frames.

Screen Resolution 
Changing the screen resolution will change what resolution VRChat will launch in. 
 
Graphics Quality 
Change the quality that VRChat launches in. 
in this case, VRLow may be what you want to save some FPS 
 
Select Monitor 
Choose which Monitor VRChat launches on. 
 
 

Suggestions

 
The suggested settings for lower spec setups would be the following: 
 
Launching the game in Direct X 9 via -force-d3d9 in the launch options 
 
Adjusting the resolution and game quality to 1280 x 720 for a wider screen or 640×400 for a blurry screen. 
 
Graphics quality of DesktopLow 
 
Unchecking windowed mode 
 
Note: these settings will not assure a perfect FPS experience as all worlds/avatars/population within VRChat can still cause FPS issues
