Have they fixed the menu frame rate issue in starcraft 2?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm about to start it for the first time and I'm afraid of slaughtering my video card.

If your video card burns out from rendering 500 frames a second, it's a bad card and you need to replace it. It's less stress than Furmark anyway.

You can always apply variable.txt fix if you are unsure.

Easy fix : V Sync on or the frame cap.

I would just cap the fps to 30 in the menu. That's what I did

I thought they fixed that way back in the beta... if not, you can always try the ini file fix:

Add the following lines to Documents\\Starcraft II\\variables.txt

frameratecapglue=30
frameratecap=60

Or whatever you want to use for the framerate cap.

Uncapped frame rates aren't going to harm you video card unless it's already defective.
