ShivFPS, or Shivam Patel in real life, has a pretty unassuming stream. He’s the definition of laid-back.
ShivFPS isn’t just a streamer though. He is also a professional esports player with incredible skill.

A notable difference between ShivFPS and his peers is the setting “Texture Streaming Budget”. Despite the name, it is actually more about the texture than streaming. It deals with both quality and resolution, and it ranges from none to insane.
If you want a higher texture streaming budget, you must have a high VRAM. In ShivFPS’ case, it is 8 GB. The general recommendation, however, is 16 GB for insane settings.
On the other hand, it was noted that there was a 6% improvement in performance when players downgraded from insane to none.
As always, when it comes to graphic settings, you have to consider your gear.
Yes, ShivFPS is in fact a mouse and keyboard user.
When it comes to his keyboard settings, there is nothing overly unusual compared to the base settings in the game. For his mouse, his sensitivity is higher than ImperialHal’s which could imply a preference or hardware adaptation.
|Settings Name||ImperialHal Accessibility Settings|
|Color Blind Mode||Off|
|Enable Accessibility Chat Features||Off|
|Convert Incoming Voice Chat to Chat Text||Off|
|Play Incoming Text Chat as Speech||Off|
