FPS question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I installed Gears Of War on my comp about a week ago, and ive been running FRAPS and it seems like i get between 65 and 35 fps on average. Now although i almost always have a high enough fps, the game still doesnt seem that fluid. It seems to be because the number varies so much within this region. The fluxuation tends to make the game jump a little bit. I was wondering if there is any way to lock the fps at about 30. I know halo 3 does this on xbox, and that game runs really well, so i was wondering if there is any way to do this on my comp, because i never drop below 30 anyways, and i think this would significantly increase game play.

Gears being an Unreal Engine 3 game, should leave a file in your mygames folder. or wherever you have it named.

You should be able to go MyDocuments>MyGames>Gears>Gearsgame or whatever. Do some digging, you should find a config folder that has a bunch of INI's in it. Look for the Engine.ini or UTEngine.ini or whatever it may be called. Again, im assuming its structured liek UT3....

Change this entry in that Ini.

[Engine.GameEngine]
bSmoothFrameRate=True
MinSmoothedFrameRate=25.000000
MaxSmoothedFrameRate=85.000000


Put the min at like 30 and max at like 35, that will keep you inbetween thsoe 2 values all teh time.

Hope that helps, assuming its setup the same as UT3, as it should be, its the same engine it will.
