If you receive an error that states "PERFORMANCE MODE SET TO DEFAULT" after making changes in Hogwarts Legacy, this likely is due to a conflict between the Game Presets on your PlayStation®5 and the option you chose in Hogwarts Legacy. You can follow the steps below to correct it:
- Launch the Settings menu on your PlayStation®5 and select [Save Data and Game/App Settings]
- Select [Game Presets]
- Under [Performance or Resolution Mode] Choose the option "Game Default", instead of any of the other choices.
- Launch Hogwarts Legacy and open the settings menu from the title screen (triangle button).
- Under Display Options, choose the preferred Performance Mode or Fidelity Mode from the list.
- The settings should then be saved when playing the game going forward and the error will not appear.
