A way to go from dx12 to dx11 outside of the game?

★★★★ Novice

I was fiddling with the graphic settings in-game last night and hit the dx12 slider which tanked my game. As I tried to get back in I would get stuck at the first splash screen with Rey, Darth Maul, and Iden... which was actually my computer freezing which it's done since. So far I've uninstalled and reinstalled both Battlefront 2 and Origin with no luck getting past the splash screen. I'm updated my drivers to the nvidia ones released on 11/14 and am currently trying a repair on the game (which I will let you know how that goes).

 

My question here is if there is a way to run the dx11 client without having to log into the game and move that dx11/12 slider, or a something to revert the client to dx11 outside the game?

Okay, I fixed it by deletign the Star Wars BF2 folder(s) under users documents, then repairing the game.

Yeah, that attempt froze my PC again, looks like I'm going to have to wait on a workaround.

Another way is to go to \Documents\Star Wars Battlefront II\settings, open BootOptions with a text editor, and change GstRender.EnableDx12 1 to GstRender.EnableDx12 0

The problem with that though is some people dont even have the bootoptions text file to edit. Is there a way to write your own or find it?
