Rocket League On Super-Low Specs Looks Like A PS1 Game

LowSpecGamer, the same guy responsible for turning 2015's most beautiful game into an eyesore, has done the same thing to Rocket League. Only this time is actually looks kinda cool.

This isn't a mod, per se, nor is it a lowering of the game's actual settings. Instead, it's the result of tweaks to the game's texture files, which basically remove everything except the bare necessities.

It's like a more colourful Tron. I love how minimal the "GOAL" explosion is, too. Below is the full video showing a variety of effects and maps looking terrible/amazing.

If this doesn't start in the right spot, head to 4:53.

To try this out yourself (via By 2 0 9 4 _ ♥),

1. Go to your Rocket League installation folder. (Default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rocketleague\)

2. Now open the "TAGame" folder and the "Config" folder.

3. Spot the "DefaultSystemSettings.ini".

4. Create a backup of the "DefaultSystemSettings.ini", by copying it and rename it to "DefaultSystemSettingsBACKUP.ini" (or something like that).

5. Now open your original "DefaultSystemSettings.ini" with any texteditor and replace the content with THIS. The file has to be called "DefaultSystemSettings.ini".


    Not sure if it's the frame rate, but that does not look like a PS1 game.

      Yeah, it's being a bit generous to say that looks like a PS1 game. Looks closer to PS2.

      yeah there seems to be a lot of this with posts about making a game look like PS1 or N64 after gutting the textures, but completely ignoring things like how there's still 30-40x the poly count and 4-10x the draw distance... not to mention smooth lighting and lack of Z-buffer fighting in the transparencies.

        Yeah, maybe if the guy disabled all of those it would look closer to a PS1 game. Right now I'd say it's closer to the "crappy PS2 shovelware" look.

    I said this on that Call of duty post, but this guy must have owned a completely different type of PS1 than I had.
