If you’ve ever wanted to run Tribes Ascend on an old computer then we’ve got just the thing for you! Phanakapan, capper extrodinaire has posted his tribes.ini file, which you can install onto your own computer to set your Tribes Ascend visual details to their absolute lowest.
To set your Tribes Ascend Graphics details to their minimum:
First head to this website to download ‘phan’s tribes.ini’ file and rename ‘Tribes.ini’, then to install this file, open up Windows Explorer and navigate to your Tribes Ascend directory, it should look something like this:
C:\Users\YOUR-USERNAME\Documents\My Games\Tribes Ascend\tribesgame\config\
Copy the file ‘Tribes.ini’ located in this folder and save it somewhere for safety. Then copy the new Tribes.ini file from above and paste it into the config folder (overwriting the previous Tribes.ini file). Then you just need to load up Tribes Ascend and your new Ultra Low settings should be enabled. If you have any issues just remove the new Tribes.ini file and replace it with your previous one.
And when I say low settings, I mean LOW. Watch a video below with the tribes.ini file mentioned above installed.
If you want an in-depth explanation of what the Tribes.ini file does, then you can check out this comprehensive document which describes each and every part.
