[BF3] How to show FPS in game

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay I didn't see this anywhere else and I know in the beta all you had to do was do CTRL+Shift+S and I tired that in the retail game but no cigar. So I went through the list of commands and I found this:

Render.DrawFps

Basically it shows the FPS in the top right corner like FRAPS. Open up the console by hitting ~ and type Render.DrawFps true and then hit enter. The FPS will then appear in the top-right corner.

Sorry if this has already been posted, I didn't see a thread or any really discussion about it. If its in the BF3 discussion thread, Please merge if possible.

Already have fraps. But the overlay they built into the game shows a more indepth graph of when your fps drop. Which helps provide better data. If I wanted to see a static fps I'd use my fraps account I've been using for years.

I think for people who don't want to record and just want to see their FPS in-game, I think this command would be the easiest solution for them personally.

yeah i posted this in the BF3 Final Performance thread but this is a good reminder for some people.

Make sure you do render.drawfps true since its a boolean.
