Issues fixed[edit]

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Fullscreen mode defaults to 60 Hz, even if the screen refresh rate is set higher than that.
Set screen refresh rate[1]
  1. Install Special K by following the Special K Unofficial Guide. Manual local installation may work better.
  2. Start the game once and close it to allow the configuration file of Special K to be created.
  3. Open <path-to-game>\dxgi.ini or %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Mods\SpecialK\Profiles\GSGameExe.exe\SpecialK.ini depending on the installation method you used.
    • DirectX 9 version uses <path-to-game>\d3d9.ini or \GSGameExe_DX9.exe\SpecialK.ini.
  4. Change RefreshRate=-1 to RefreshRate=0 under [Render.FrameRate].

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/246960/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (246960) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
