Bright Memory Infinite DX12 Ray Tracing Greyed Out – How to fix

Is the DX12 Ray Tracing setting greyed out or not available for you in Bright Memory Infinite PC? Don’t worry, there are working fixes for this issue

The DX12 Ray Tracing setting is not working for many users in Bright Memory Infinite

Bright Memory Infinite could be easily termed as the ‘Biggest surprise of the year’, the game got announced out of nowhere, and got released out of nowhere. It did manage to create a decent amount of hype since the trailer was shown for the first time.

The devs of Bright Memory have been quite vocal about Ray Tracing since the announcement of the game. They have been saying from the beginning that implementation of Ray Tracing has taken the visuals of the game to another. And I do agree with them. I played the game for a while, and I can guarantee that most of you have not seen anything like this.

Anyway, a lot of players who bought Bright Memory Infinite are complaining that the Ray Tracing option is not working for them. It is completely greyed out. Now, it makes sense for users who do not have RTX cards. But even users with RTX 3070s and 3080s are experiencing this issue. Check out this post from a Steam user:

RTX Greyed Out

I have RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and the DX-12 RTX is greyed out. How Come?

Now the question is, can this be fixed?

How to fix

I myself was having this issue to be honest. I have a RTX 3060 ti, and the Ray Tracing and DLSS setting was greyed out for me too. Here is what I did to fix the issue:

  1. I uninstalled Bright Memory
  2. I then updated my Nvidia driver to version 496.49 via GeForce Experience. It had version 471.68 before
  3. Then, re-installed Bright Memory Infinite
  4. After pressing the Play button on Steam, you get two options:
    • Play Bright Memory: Infinite
    • Use a raytracing (DX12)-capable PC for best performance
      Bright Memory Infinite Steam Launch Options
  5. I chose the second option

And, that is all I did to fix my issue. I am using Windows 10 64-bit Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.1348), and the Ray Tracing option is now available on my RTX 3070, my 3060 ti, as well as on my RTX 2060.
