High frame rate

By default, enabling Adaptive V-Sync in the driver control panel will disable V-Sync entirely on a 60 Hz display. Unlocking the framerate will fix this.
Edit config file
  1. Go to the configuration file location.
  2. Open SSD_GRAPHICS_CONFIG in the text editor of your choosing.
  3. Change the line "framerate_control" : "Auto", to "framerate_control" : "Variable", and save the file.


If you make any changes to the graphics options in-game, this preference will be reset.
Affects camera/mouse input; Higher/variable FPS = higher/variable sensitivity.
