120+ FPS[edit]

The game normally has v-sync forced on, resulting in framerate being tied to the monitor refresh rate (e.g. 120hz = 120 FPS).[3]
Uncap the frame rate regardless of refresh rate using Special K[4]
  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.
