High frame rate[edit]

When vsync is enabled in the settings of the game, the framerate is locked to the refresh rate.[4] When disabled, the game is locked to 60 FPS.[5]
Uncap the frame rate regardless of refresh rate using Special K[6]
  1. Enable Vsync in the settings of the game.
  2. Install Special K locally for the game by moving the SpecialK32.dll to the game folder and renaming it to dxgi.dll
  3. Run the game once, and then close it.
  4. Open dxgi.ini in a text editor and change PresentationInterval=-1 to PresentationInterval=0
  5. Run the game and confirm that the frame rate is uncapped.

Notes:

Vsync must be enabled in the settings of the game for this override to work.
