Framerate

Sorry, couldnt see any info on this - my game seems to run at standard 30, my .lua file is saying 60.

Any suggestions? Currently too slow to be playable :(

Thanks

    do you have it typed out correctly? the .lua file is very sensitive to characters and even if one letter or bracket or anything is out of place, it will not function properly, in my file the line looks like this;

    SetPrivateProfileString('Program Options','Maximum Frame Rate','60')

    copy paste this line over your 30 fps line and see if that works

    also remember, when playing at 60 fps, durations are halved ( since you are playing at double speed )

    Thanks - yes, definitely typed correctly and didn't work with copy/paste from the line above.

    tried a number of things like verifying game files, deleting the .lua, restarting game/PC, reinstalling, switching off Frame rate settings in Nvidia, checked file is not 'read only' - cant figure it out at all. Also tried launching from .exe incase BD launchers was resetting it.

    It's almost like the game isn't reading that file, but when i delete it and load a new save, the new file is set to 30, so it does seem to be the file that the game is using/creating/ignoring.

    are you using the LUA file this is in your "documents" folder? because there is one in the main directory and that one doesn't affect the game

    if so i will give you my LUA file and you can try to copy paste it directly into yours and see if that helps, hopefully it doesn't crash your game though ( so perhaps have a spare or your original one just in case )

    Thanks very much - appreciate the help.

    Yeah, definitely using the documents folder.

    Copied and pasted the text above but again, no difference.

    Oddly, I can toggle things like greyscale via the .lua file and it affects the game and likewise, toggling through the in game interface affects the file. Seems specific to the framerate. I'm hunting to see what other programs, firewall settings etc might be restricting a framerate globally.

    Also, using Nvidea FPS display, shows me that it is actually running at 18-19 FPS
  • GrayhamsterGrayhamster Member Posts: 7
    So running in windowed mode sorts it out - as soon as I go into full screen, which I'd prefer, I'm on 20FPS. At least I have a play option now though!

    Thanks again.

    how old are your nvidia drivers? what card do you have? I have a 2080 TI and have no problems with my frame rates for both games and they are set to 60
