Open your console IN GAME while actually playing by pressing the "~" key and type in umbra culling and press enter.. should give you like +20fps maybe less maybe more.. Worked for me and others Happy shooting!

Umbra is a middleware app, to be honest, i dont know if its used by AA3, its not on the list at least.

Edit:
A quick test showed no higher framerate.

It was a little as i expected as Umbra apparently is not used by AA3

Don, it looks essentially the same to me. Unless I am missing the point here, I can't tell the
difference. LOL, maybe I am blind?

You are allowed to type nonsense words and phrases into the console.
