How to skip the game starting the 2K launcher, which may help a little bit with the performance.
Find a way to TheQuarry.exe file on your computer, it is usualy located in your Steam library.
ie: X:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonThe Quarry.exe
X = your disc name/letter
If you have a custom place for your Steam library, you definitely know how to find it and do not need any guide.
1) Run Steam client, go to your Steam library and right click The Quarry.
2) Select “Properties…”.
3) The very first window that appears contains a “LAUNCH OPTIONS” section.
4) Copy + paste the path to your TheQuarry.exe file with quotation marks and add %command% at the end.
“D:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonThe QuarryTheQuarry.exe” %command%
Close the window, run the game and BAM! No 2K launcher and slightly better performance!
If you still have issues with lags and out-of-sync cutscenes, make sure the game is installed on SSD if you have one.
Lowering Texture and foliage quality also helps.
