Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. Doesn't matter.
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Doesn't matter it happens everywhere.

When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm)
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)

What happens when the bug occurs? he bug is. When I set Model Details in Video Settings to Low/Medium, it instantly sets it back to High. Simply by setting it on Low/Medium and leaving the menu, and then re-opening the menu the setting is back on "High". I hoped the Season 1 patch would fix it. My 6 friends I play with all have the same issue. It's not gamebreaking, but for some of my friends with low-end systems it is abit annoying that they cannot put the setting on Low/Medium.
What should be happening instead? It should let me chose Low/Medium
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to Display settings, set Model Details to Low/Medium. Press Apply, leave the menu, go back.

Re: Model Details Bug

Current workaround is to go to:

 

C:\Users\[your username here]\Saved Games\Respawn\Apex\local\videoconfig.txt

 

Find the line that reads:

 

"setting.r_lod_switch_scale"

 

And change the numbers in that line

 

0.6 = Low

0.8 = Med

1.0 = High

 

You can also set it to be a bit lower that Low if you want/need to crank up that FPS

@BaRrY_fTw21  Does this workaround help you out at all?

Have you tried:

 

  • Right-clicking on the game and selecting "Repair."
  • Reinstall the game
