NOTE: This is my own Guide not based on any other guide out there.

Make a backup of your save game just to be safe !(safety first)
you can find your save game folder at the following address:

First uninstall NMS, make sure that the No Man’s Sky folder is deleted at:
or (YourDrive:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common)

Now install NMS, after install launch NMS, load your game or start a new game if you can’t load your game, once your loaded in the game, simply exit the game.

now navigate to where your game is installed should be similar to the following:

YourDrive:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\No Man’s Sky\Binaries\SETTINGS\TKGRAPHICSSETTINGS.MXML
YourDrive:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\No Man’s Sky\Binaries\SETTINGS\TKGRAPHICSSETTINGS.MXML


<Property name=”TextureStreamingEx” value=”Off” /> //Make sure this is Off.
TextureStreamingEx must be set Off otherwise your game will not even load.

4 GB example, 4 GB = 4194304 Kb in binary.
Calculate your VRAM GB to KB here: https://www.gbmb.org/gb-to-kb

<Property name=”TexturePageSizeKb” value=”4194304″ /> // GPU VRAM in Binary.

TexturePageSizeKb many people believe that the correct value for this is the maximum VRAM when using a conversion from 4 gb to 4096 Mb for example, it’s wrong.
Why ? because i have tested all guides up to now and all show the same results.
They don’t really fix all the issues.

Now ill tell you what i think is correct:

1 Gigabyte is equal to 1048576 kilobytes (binary).
1 GB = 220 KB in base 2.

Difference Between GB and KB
Gigabyte unit symbol is GB, Kilobyte unit symbol is KB.
Gigabyte is greater than Kilobyte. GB has the prefix Giga. KB has the prefix Kilo. Gigabyte is 1000000 times bigger than Kilobyte.
Gigabyte in SI and base 10 (decimal)
1 Gigabyte = 10003 bytes
1 Gigabyte = 1,000,000,000 bytes
Gigabyte in base 2 (binary)
1 Gigabyte = 230 bytes
1 Gigabyte = 10243 bytes
1 Gigabyte = 1,073,741,824 bytes

So if you understand this you know that setting TexturePageSizeKb to your max VRAM in Mb’s is wrong.

1 GB = 1024 MB (in binary)
1 GB = 1048576 KB (in binary)

Your CPU value can look different at default since not all cpu are the same, leave it as default.
Don’t touch these settings must always be default !!!:
<Property name=”NumHighThreads” value=”1″ />
<Property name=”NumLowThreads” value=”2″ />
HelloGames know’s their meaning.(simply changing this makes your game unstable)
play your game and have fun!.
