Frame Limiter

This page is a work-in-progress and might have missing information.

This is a setting hack that can be enabled on the "Settings" page of the Mods List.

This hack limits the frame rate of the game to an amount specified in the hack's settings with additional options to configure when and how this is done.

Settings

Target Frame Rate

The frame rate that the hack will attempt to reach with the selected Method (see below for more details).

Defaults to 60.

Limit While on Loading Screens

Set whether or not the frame rate will be limited on loading screens.

Defaults to Disabled because this is because this negatively impacts loading times.

Set whether or not the frame rate will be limited on the main menu and the pause menu.

Defaults to Enabled.
